I’ve been in touch with Greg Gliddon from The Courier over the past day or so, and met him down at their offices in Ballarat yesterday for a photo with their photographer. Woke up this morning to find my big mug on the second page of The Courier’s Friday paper!

Then just before lunch, Channel 9 called me and asked me to do an interview in my dress at Ballarista. So I donned the dress for a second day and got down there, and coaxed the Ballarista staff into donning their dresses as well. We were on the 6:00pm Western Victoria TV news bulletin. Lots of fun had today, and a fair bit of exposure, which is nice!

“I am hoping the sight of such a bloke riding along the highway in a school dress will let people have some fun, and be enough to stop people and at the very least raise some awareness”

A big shout-out to the guys at The Courier for helping me get the word out today: Thanks a lot!
