Poetry Competition!

Hi Guys! I said it was going to happen, didn’t I? Yes, yes. So Kool-Aid had kind of taken over my life, but don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about poetry. I’ve been doing the rounds here on WordPress and have been coming across so many great poets out there — and I want to help…

KOOL-AID: they’re looking for me

To say I’m scared is a massive understatement. See, when you’re in the cult, they know everything about you. Your family, your friends. Gruff had a visit from the cult. Suited bastards, he called them. Apparently, they are concerned for my safety. Worried about my mental well-being. Why else would I have left the church…

KOOL-AID: it’s all about the money

So. What happens when you’ve been in a cult for ten years, five of those spent devoted entirely to the “cause”? You have nothing. No money. No job. No credit history, no employment experience, no references, probably no family and certainly no friends. It’s worse, of course, for those who grow up in a cult….

KOOL-AID: i would have been happy living under a bridge

Another instalment of Kool-Aid! In case you missed the others, hit up the first instalment here. If you’re enjoying Kool-Aid, let me know and don’t forget to subscribe!   Well. Probably not. I’m a bit precious, really. Certainly never went camping. Sleeping on floors? Hell no! But was in such a bad place, like horrible,…

KOOL-AID: seriously. do you not get the Kool-aid reference?

Really did think the whole “drinking the Kool-Aid” idiom was one everyone would get. Maybe you’re all too young. Maybe there aren’t enough Americans reading this. (For the record, I am not American. Not that there’s anything wrong with that). Right. So. A brief history lesson on cult-leader nutters for you. Okay. So there was…

KOOL-AID: signs you may be in a cult

Signs plural? No; in my experience, there’s just one sign: You’re not allowed to use the internet. Sounds mad, no? But true. And possible, even in today’s society. In my “church” internet use was frowned upon. Easy for those of us living on base — we simply were not given facilities to access the internet….

KOOL-AID: well done, dickhead

Well done, dickhead. Australian proverb. Was my dad’s favourite saying. Might still be. He used it mostly when driving. Like…

Welcome to Koolaid

Hello all and Happy New Year! I am now, officially, a year older (but, apparently, not wiser). For the last few months I have been writing a blog called Almost Drank the Koolaid, which I will now be featuring here on giorgethomas.com starting tomorrow. But I have a bit of explaining to do. So check…

Merry Christmas!

From my family to yours, wishing you all a wonderful Christmas! Stay tuned in the New Year for more exciting news!

get your holiday shopping on!

Yup. It’s that time of year. Christmas shopping. For a lot of people (including me) it’s a nightmare. But don’t despair – I’ve come across some quirky and quite stocking stuffers you’re sure to fall in love with. You can thank me later for making your life easier. Or you could buy me some of…
