Santa, Baby!

Raising funds, and eyebrows, are all in a day's work for the thousands of Santas that headed to Freo for the annual Variety Santa Fun Run yesterday.

I was super chuffed to be one of this year's Blogger Ambassadors for the event firstly because it is for an awesome charity, and secondly, because dressing up and acting like a twat comes really naturally to me.

Is this the real life? Is this just Santa Sea?

The sea of red and tinsel was amazing and it appeared that Pinterest had exploded and thrown up all of Christmas on The Esplanade.

Tricky refused to walk any of it and instead spent the entire 5km on top of Map Guy and his uncle The Engineer's shoulders, blowing raspberries and waving. Considering last Christmas any time he saw a Santa (or even a Christmas display!) he'd run away screaming blue murder, I'm chalking up a refusal to walk / want for a better viewpoint as a huge win.

Rockin' the Red

My beard gave me the absolute shits and since the Nova Crew had mentioned the propensity of synthetic beards to cause dehydration during fun runs, for *ahem* safety, I wore mine around my neck for 99% of the walk (i.e. for every single part of it except when I had my photo taken). Map Guy wore his the entire time since he'd BYO'd his own Ginger Ninja face fuzz.

There is still time to donate if you wish, but for now, I leave you with what you can do with your suit now that the event is over:


  1. I totally kept an eye out for you but everybody looked the same! Plus, I was looking for a pram.. haha
    Me and my bro kept our beards on for about half a kilometer and then it was off!
    How ripped off did you feel when you hit the 4km mark and there was still 500m to go??
    'twas loads of fun though. We then got to catch the train into the city, grab maccas, catch the train up to Whitfords station.. in partial santa suits :D
    I now need to hit up the friends and fam (via email and text) for $$$!

  2. That video is so funny - you are such a dag!
    Good on you for doing another charity walk for such a good cause :)

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
    Here is my web blog :: free iphones

  4. Haha, that's pretty awesome. And naww at Tricky.

    Confession, I never really liked Santa, even as a child. I think I might have been scared by the random shop Santa and just flat out refused to accept him as nice. I did love the presents, though.
