About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.

 

His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).

 

Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.

 

His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.

The Body Art Option.

Spoke to a tattooist about doing me up a design for my book - the silhouette I've decided I simply must have. Cost is minimum $70, and $130 an hour. I've seen the work they do on my friends, so I know they can do what I need. The owner was hesitant but interested. Or polite but uninterested. It's an option anyoldhow. And right now, that's what I need. Options. Ideas. Costings. Then I can whittle them done to what's going to work for me.

And, on a personal note, I have a tattoo on my back which my first wife did when I was young and stupid. Who knows, maybe if I really like the design I can get them to tattoo it over cupid. That'd be pretty cool.
