I'm Alessia, most people call me Bess. I have many nick names, you'll learn that. Most people don't even know my real name, but if you can't pronounce it properly, it's probably best we leave it that way. My surname is Porcaro, and I can neither confirm nor deny that I COULD be related to Mike, Steve and Jeff Porcaro from the band Toto, but there's a slight possibility considering us Porcaro's are a rare breed.
I live in Melbourne, Australia. I've traveled the World, but Melbourne will always be my home. It's the perfect place for me, it has my heart. Yet, my home away from home would have to be Rome, Italy. I'm 28, but 16 at heart, with the mental capability of a 40 year old. I can be wise, but I can also be cheeky.
I like to surround myself with amazing people. I settle for nothing less.
I am a good person. I am a bad influence.
My moto: Life is a musical. Sing it.
The things I love the most in the world are my Family, Friends, Music, Movies, Musicals, and Comedy (Comedy Festival/Fringe Festival season is better than Christmas) - without these things I'm fairly certain I'd lose my mind even more than I already have.
I am a host at Next, Bang and Plastic (some Alternative Nightclubs in Melbourne. Say "Bess" at the door of these nights for cheap entry).
Some extra special people in my life include (you may notice their names featured in a number of blogs):
*** My family (all of you, my life), Allan "AJ" Bonham, Jaclyn Neame, Brett Wasina, Laurie Zag, Natalia Athanasiadis, Liam Arthur, Kristen Jane, Helen Jonezales, Paul Bailey, Dave Callan, Andrew McClelland, Cate Coleman, Kristy Coulter, Missa McCulloch, Collin McCulloch***
I like blogs that mix it up a bit, have a bit of everything, and throw in some good reads every now and then. For me, my blog is like a personal diary slash scrap book. I write down thoughts, things that have happened to me, things that make me laugh, opinions, quotes, share videos and links that I think should get some recognition, and other bits and pieces of stuff that has influenced me over the years.
I don’t really expect that anyone actually reads a lot of my dribblings, or pays attention to the random crap that I post, but for me it’s like a snippet of my life, and I can go back and read over things, as I would if I kept a diary. A virtual diary if you will.
Sometimes I wonder if my introduction to myself is a little too long, and I wonder if anyone actually reads this far. But then I think to myself; you know what? Those who enjoy reading this, are the ones who will enjoy following my blog. So if you've made it this far, I hope you've found what you are looking for, and I hope I’m able to provide you with some entertainment from time to time.
