It was all over the headlines when Alice was arrested and jailed briefly for public intoxication while her boyfriend, the Mad Hatter, was charged with a DIC for driving the car under the influence of alcohol.
Alice didn’t seem to take the incident, or the media rush to tell the world very seriously. She said: “We’re only able to be seen through the microscope of the media and what people gossip about. You take the good with the bad. It’s by telling our stories, sharing our experiences and giving a first-hand look at us as human beings [that shows] who we are apart from what we seem to be.”
Though she had to address the issue of the recent media attention for her drunken night out, her focus remains on her sobriety and new hobby, Splendid Tea Pot Racing, where this year at Oamaru she will be a first-time contestant.
Alice says: “I am ready to participate and share my past, I’m super excited. Splendid Tea Pot Racing is the next big thing, but I’m not looking forward to the Ramp of Doom. I sincerely want to give it my best shot. Splendid Tea Pot Racing isn’t about tearing people down; it’s about building people up, being part of a supportive family and having a jolly good laugh.”
Alice confided that the stress of an arranged marriage, falling twice into Wonderland, killing the Jabberwocky, restoring the kingdom and coming back to normal life was just too much. “My life imploded, I just wanted to be a child again, and I turned to alcohol and drugs, and that was wrong. Now I have been to rehab, and I am clean and sober. I have found Splendid Teapot Racing, and I can be a child again, I just love it! I am so happy I could Futterwhack!”
Splendid Teapot Racing will be held this weekend in Oamaru, 2 pm at the Working Men’s Club.
