A tropical island of kangaroos...

Kangaroo Island in SA has been named the best island in Asia Pacific by the experts at National Geographic. It was also ranked 7th in the world, beating out Hawaii & the Maldives.
I haven't been there but it is named after a Kangaroo so I am sure I would love it! Now if only there were Koala caves.....

Need some more sex in your life?

Here is the trailer for the Sex and the City movie coming out in 2008.

I have no idea if this is true, but....

If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from your ATM, you can notify the cops by entering your Pin # in reverse. So if your pin number is 1234 then you put in 4321. The ATM sees that your pin number is backwards & you will get the $ but the police will be called right away.

Wax on Wax off

I am not trying to be mean, but when I saw this pic of Nic I thought, wow she really doesn't have any lines on her face...then I realized this was a wax figure of her in Madame Tussauds. Wow.

My idea for a new reality show

Brad Pitt is on Larry King talking about how he is basically going to save New Orleans. It is kind of amazing the amount of charity work that Brad & Angie do. They actually travel to all of these places for the right reasons, to actually help. Instead of just doing it for good PR like a lot of other celebs do. I want to have a reality show that travels around filming what they do. I will call it:

Bradgelina...Saving the World, One Continent at a Time.

Jennifer Loves "Her Body" Hewitt

The "You go girl" award of the week goes to Jennifer. She came out on her blog to defend herself against all of the people who called her fat after seeing this photo. She said a "size 2 is not fat." She is totally right. Maybe this isn't the most flattering angle but she still looks fine & a lot of people would want to look like her.

The end of an Era

As you all know by now John Howard, or as I call him Jo Ho, didn't win his reelection as prime minister. While I know a lot about AUS, I admit I don't follow politics there as much as I should. But part of me is sad that Jo Ho is out bc I always wanted to see him in person on his morning walk in his green and gold tracky dacks!

due to technical difficulties

I haven't been able to blog lately. I am working in it and should be back in action in a few days. Stay tuned and hopefully I will have something witty and or entertaining to say!

I feel old

The youngest Hanson brother is about to have a baby with his wife. Looks like someone has been MMMBopping!
This makes me feel so old, I still think he should be about 12!

Rehab can work for you!

I know there are 12 steps to rehab, but I am going to add one more for Lindsey:
#13. Wear pants in public!

Recycle old phones

Most cell phones last for about 18 months. Each year over 130 million phones are ready for the garbage & only 1% of those are recycled! They phones contain so much lead that they are considered hazardous waste. So take a second & recycle them. Here are 2 websites you can use: or Also many electronic stores take have recycling bins for phones (I just brought two back to Best Buy & I think Radio Shack takes them also.) Cheers!

HO, HO......NO!

In some shopping malls in Australia, Santas have been banned from saying, "Ho, Ho, Ho" because people think this may scare kids.
WTF? This is scarier then thinking some strange man is going to come into their house in the middle of the night while they are sleeping? Hello??? How can they ban ho, ho, ho? I say that all of the time, especially in a club. But when I say it, it is more like, "She's a ho, she's definitely a ho, she looks like a ho, ho, ho!"

Will J Lo give birth in a stable too?

J Lo finally admitted she was pregnant. Here is the breaking news: She is NOT the first woman in the world to give birth! Seriously people have been talking about this for months. Enough! Unless she names that baby Jesus Lopez Anthony, I am pretty sure it is not the second coming of Christ. Let's all move on now. thanks

Clash of the Titans

Apparently George Clooney & Fabio got into a fight at a Hollywood restaurant. People say it was due to the paparazzi but I know the real reason. The conversation went like this:
GC: It's butter.
Fabio: It's not butter!
GC: It HAS to be butter, I can't believe it isn't.
Fabio: It ISN'T butter, I keep telling you that!

Hug it out wait...I take it back!

My question is not what would Jesus do, but what would Ari Gold do? In Alabama, Illinois, & Texas, students have gotten into trouble for hugging each other. In one case a student was consoling a friend who lost a parent. WTF? Really? What is going on in the USA? I can understand not wanting kids to do the horizontal hokey pokey in school but a hug? Give me a break.

CMA's 2007

Keith & Nicole were at the CMA's this week. I hate to be catty, but M-E-O-W. Since when is beige a hair color? And the dress looked a bit like a garden exploded on her. yikes! And for anyone who missed Kelli Pickler's performance see below. I personally believed she was genuine.

Pet Peeve of the week

When there is a long line in the grocery store & people (usually I hate to say, women) don't bag their own groceries. They have a 847 items & wait for the cashier to bag. That is pure laziness & wastes the time of everyone behind you. Plus, ladies, don't wait for the cashier to tell you the price to then start digging through your bag for your wallet. The lady in front of me today stood there until he told her the total then took 10 minutes to find her wallet, find the right card. etc. Ugh.

NYC Marathon

Congrats to Paula Radcliffe for winning the NYC Marathon! It was hard for me to find a pic of Paula, but it was not hard for me to find a pic of Katie Holmes who also ran the Marathon. Many of today's newspaper had a pic of Katie on the cover instead of the winner. That is really not cool. Besides when did Katie have time to train? Everytime I see her she is playing in the park with her kid or in Bloomingdales. Was it a coincidence that Tom has a new movie premiering the same day? (also b4 anyone says I am being a hypocrite bc I write about celebrities sometimes, I am NOT a news organization. I know, I know, you constantly confuse me with CNN! ha)

WTF of the week

Speaking of Steve Irwin, while promoting her new book that she wrote about him, Terri Irwin apparently said she misses Steve especially in the bedroom bc he was hot-in-the-cot. WTF, really, was it necessary for her to say that? She knows how many kids are going to be listening to what she says. Give me a break.

Justin Timbersex

Oops I meant Timberlake! A friend of mine saw Justin in Australia recently & this was her concert review: "He was sex on sneakers!" (I agree, he can really move). Anyway 1 cool thing JT did while in AUS was to donate $100,000 to an Australian wildlife fund in honor of Steve Irwin.

Is Scientology better then botox?

I just watched crazy Tom Cruise on Jay Leno & I am amazed at how young he looks. Seriously he looks like he did in Risky Business! WTF? I don't know if it is the haircut or some special space alien stuff, but it is working.

What I want for Christmas...

Happy HootchieWeen

I realized today that Halloween is just an excuse for girls to dress like whores & get away with it. I saw girls today in Halloween outfits that were so revealing & slutty that they would never walk out of the house dressed like that on any other day. It doesn't bother me, I am merely pointing out a fact!

Powderfinger at the ARIA's

In case you missed. I have to say they are my fave Aussie band.

NBC goes green!

Starting next week, NBC will go Green! YAY. Many of their shows next week will have green story lines & will feature eco-friendly guest stars such as Al Gore. This makes me happy especially since I just watched An Inconvenient Truth & I am frightened for the world.

Monday, October 29, 2007

Congrats to "Our Keith"

Keith Urban also won an ARIA (basically the aussie version of the Grammy's) for best country album & he thanked his wife. How boring. He should have thanked me! I paid for tix to see him in concert twice. What has Nicole done for him? :)
In case you missed it:

Why Americans are fat

I went to a local Italian restaurant & ordered Chicken Parmigiana. It came with a side of spaghetti which easily could have fed 2 people. BUT the chicken parm came, & it was FOUR chicken cutlets. Seriously, FOUR. Is that really necessary? It is actually gross. I brought most of it home & had chicken parm for the next 2 days!

Walking in a Straight line...

Right up to the podium to get their 5 ARIA awards! Congrats to Silverchair. If you missed the performance, here it is:

Waffle House War

Kid Rock was arrested in Atlanta after a fight broke out in a Waffle House. Who gets into a fight at a Waffle House? That is like the happiest place in the world. They have all kinds of waffles & toppings. Did they run out of syrup? Jeez.

Dumbledore is...F-I-E-R-C-E!

So JK Rowling "outed"Dumbedore last week. Why is this a surprise? He wore robes with glitter on them & never had a woman in his million years on earth. (kidding) I love that she said this bc it opens kids up to the fact that there are all different lifestyles out there. It is still the same story that is has always been. The idiots that are complaining about it are prob the same ones that never let their kids read the books bc they thought it promoted "witchcraft". Please people, get over it. If I were JK I would have just said, "Too bad you have a problem with it, I am going to back & count my billions now." Instead she had a great response which was: "It has certainly never been news to me that a brave and brilliant man could love other men. He is my character. He is what he is and I have the right to say what I say about him." I say you-go-girl!

Not LOST enought to find a BAR

Daniel Dae Kim was busted for a DUI in Hawaii. This is the 3rd cast member to get a DUI. WTF people? It is an island, it's not that big. You can probably walk or canoe home for God's sake. Seriously what is wrong with this cast??

When stage mom's attack...

God help us all. I am trying not to write about Britney but I am making an exception bc this is about her Mom, or Mama, if you will. Apparently Lynne Spears is writing a book about Britney that will be called "Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story or Fame & Family in a Tabloid World." Give me a break. It is bad enough your daughter is a hot mess, but now you are going to write a book about it? These are what I think she will name the chapters:
1. How to push young girls into the spotlight for the fame that I always wanted for myself
2. Growing up Country Y'all
3. Disney makes dreams come true! From a a Mess, in 10 short years
4. How to avoid: public head shavings, marrying a backup dancer & no pantie photos

Disney High School Musical 3

If you are a 12 year old girl, or someone much older who wishes you were a 12 year old girl bc if you were it would be totally ok to have a crush on Zac Efron as opposed to being a woman over 30 & having a crush on Zac Efron which is almost creepy & weird, here is a funny clip from Saturday Night Live of their version of DHSM 3:

Kath and Kim and Molly

Molly "superstar" Shannon has been cast as Kath in the American version of Kath & Kim. She is very funny & I can see her playing this role perfectly. However I still really can't see that show working here, but I guess you never know!

Beyonce needs to go Bye Bye for a bit

Ok I am so Beyonce'd out right now. She is in commercials for Pepsi, American Express, L'Oreal, & now she is coming out with the "B-Phone" from Samsung. It will let you download her pic's, songs & video's. What is next? Beyonce Pampers??

Monday, October 15, 2007

Still living in a material world!

Madonna is supposedly ending her contract with Warner records & signing a new deal worth $120 million with Live Nation.
I can't really wrap my mind around that amount. She is already worth hundreds of millions, to get $120 million on top of that seems a bit much! She could buy all of Malawi with that. (Seriously though I hope most of that $ goes to charity)

Star Trek info

Just f.y.i., "Our" Eric Bana will be in the new Star Trek movie.
That's all.

Sports news of the week

Congrats to England for beating France for the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup. Another great last minute win from Jonny Wilkinson. (I still haven't forgiven him for beating Australia in the 2003 World Cup, but I have to admit he is h-o-t.)

Goonies never say die....until the sequel

Supposedly they are working on a sequel for Goonies. Ugh. I don't want a sequel. I still want to think of Mouth, Data, Chunk, Mikey, etc as kids living in the Goon docks! And besides if they were going to do a sequel shouldn't they have done it about 14 years ago?

Environmental tips of the week

* You don't need an actual yellow pages phone book bc you know you look up phone numbers on line now! So call to stop delivery of the actual book. (10% of garbage at the dump is old phone books)
*Take your car to the car wash instead of doing it yourself. The car wash uses about 100 less gallons of water then if you did it at home.

Celebrity Rap Star

Ok it's no secret that I like bad reality tv, but I am embarrassed to admit I watch MTV's Celebrity Rap Star. However each week I am blown away by how good Shar Jackson is. (Remember she was K-Fed's girlfriend & baby mama before Britney) Anyway this week they had to write their own rap. You have to watch Shar's performance, the last line of her rap is classic!

Aussie tv in the US

So for Aussie's in the US, or Americans who may be interested, here are 2 shows you may want to know about:
1-Australian Princess started airing last night on the WE tv channel. 14 Aussie girls enter a competition to become a "Princess". It will be on Tuesday nights at 10 PM
2-South Sydney Story is a documentary about Russell Crowe buying a Sydney Rugby team. It starts tonight & airs on Wednesday on the Versus tv channel.

Kid Nation

So this new reality show, Kid Nation, basically drops a bunch of kids off in a "ghost town" where they have to live on their own, fend for themselves, cook, do chores, etc without any adult supervision. Parents had to sign this waiver basically that the network is not responsible for anything from death to avalanches. This is not what disturbs me. What bothers me is that the clip that I saw showed a 10 year old girl that said this, "I don't do dishes. I am a beauty queen." OMG. If this kid is saying this at 10, what is she going to be like at 20??

A Zac Sandwich

Here is a pic of Zac Efron & the Veronicas. I actually have a photo of me with the Veronica's. The sad thing is I think Zac is a prettier girl then I am!

Talk about Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!

Recently in Georgia, a man's pants caught on fire because of the ipod nano he was carrying in his pocket. Apparently the battery exploded & ignited. I know a lot of guys say they have a "fire in their pants" but that is ridiculous!

Kylie's new film clip (video)

Here is the link to Kylie's new video, 2 Hearts. I have to say I am not in love with the song. :(
But maybe it will grow on me.

Back to Bundoora...

Peter Helliar has been announced as the new host of Triple M's breakfast show. Yay! He is my other fave Aussie comedian. I already listen to Hughsey & Kate and Hamish & Andy every morning. Now I am going to have to fit Pete into the mix also. Listening to aussie radio is becoming a full time job!

Australian Hotel of the Year!

Congrats to the Lion Hotel in North Adelaide Australia! It was named "Australian Hotel of the Year!" (Only my Adelaide friends will find the next part funny so anyone else feel free to stop reading now) Ok I think the Lion won bc it has that big Casino in the back! And the secret caves underneath....Oh, & now my ADL friends will die, but....I had no idea it was actually a hotel, I thought it was just a pub....Seriously.

Heather is appalled?

I read that Heather from ROL was appalled how they edited the final episode. She said it made her look bad. I think she should be appalled at the bad 80's hair & stripper dresses! But, to quote her, "I'm not a playa, I'm a congratulator." I liked her & thought she should have wound up with Bret, esp since she tattooed his name on her neck.

I am on fire this week

This past week I randomly saw the following celebrities: Bret Ratner, Sophia from MTV's Road Rules 10, & Willem Dafoe. Ok, I guess Sophia doesn't really count but she was on a tv show. I must admit when I saw Willem I was tempted to look up into to the sky & scream, "Look everyone, it's Spiderman!" (But don't worry, I didn't embarrass myself!)

Montana is on fire...

Hannah Montana that is! Miley Cyrus (the 14 year old from Disney's Hannah Montana & daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus) is currently the hottest concert ticket in the country. Her tickets are going for more then Justin & Beyonce's. She will never have to work again. That breaks my heart, my achy breaky heart. At 14 I was babysitting for $5 an hour. Oy.

Rock of Love is over, I have no reason for living...

So tonight is the reunion show! I can't wait. I am sure everyone would have watched the finale by now. I love that Bret actually asked the final 2 girls if they could both be his girlfriends instead of him having to choose just one!

Naked for any reason is good....

Naked for a cause is even better! ;) The AFL & NRL have teamed up & made a calendar to raise money for breast cancer. (For Americans, AFL is Aussie Rules Football & NRL is rugby, so basically they are all hot Aussie guys) Anyway not only is this good eye candy, (see exhibit A) but it is for a good cause!

Loving Letterman

I refuse to mention a certain hotel heiress anymore. But this clip of her on Letterman last week is pretty good. Dave grills her and he is very funny.

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Summer Heights High

I loved "We could be Heroes" so I was very excited to see that you can download episodes on itunes for free of Chris Lilley's new show Summer Heights High. He is so hilarious as Ja'mie, a Sydney school girl, that when he was on Hamish & Andy last week in character, people were phoning in after the interview to complain about the obnoxious girl. They didn't even realize it was Chris.


Kiefer Sutherland was arrested for the 4th time for drunk driving. This was after leaving a party that was thrown by his network. OMG seriously, they couldn't hire a car? The millions that he makes & that the studio makes from 24 & they couldn't pay for a cab? Give me a break.

What I am loving this week

Hughsey and Kate. I can't get enough of them! They just crack me up. For aussies living abroad, you can download podcasts of their Nova radio show on itunes for free or can listen live on

Reason #847 to stop smoking

Ok boys, pay attention! Smokers have 41% more of a chance of developing erectile dysfunction then non smokers. Maybe that will help you quit!
(sorry about having two posts in a row about penises, but sometimes a girls got to do what a girls got to do. I am looking out for the ladies too!)

At least he had his own personal "lightning rod"

In Croatia, a motorcyclist stopped at the side of the road bc he had to go to the bathroom. While he was peeing, his penis was struck by lighting! The doctors told him that his rubber boots saved him & the lightning went through his penis.
This just goes to show, you should always wear rubbers....

Sunday, September 23, 2007

Just because....

there is nothing cuter then the annual "hot dog" races!

"Our" Kylie is back in action

Kylie's new single called "2 Hearts" will be released on Nov. 12th and the album, apparently called "X" will be coming out on Nov. 26th. Yay!

Advice for the week

This website,, gives you the 800 # to almost every company in the US, AND more importantly, it tells you what prompts to press to get through to an actual human person instead of an annoying robot voice that says stupid stuff like "hi, I am Jen & I am here to help you." Bookmark this site, you will thank me later when you are on hold with your bank, phone company, etc.

Bad Ass Barry Manilow

Barry Manilow refused to appear on the talk show The View, bc he disagrees with Elizabeth Hasselback's political views & didn't want to compromise his beliefs. I give him credit for standing up for himself, however he is just not believable as a tough guy. See exhibit A to the right.

Get Buffy back!

Last week at a university in Texas, one of the dorms was invaded by bats. That's right, Bats. Students were using brooms & tennis rackets to try to protect themselves.
WTF? Is this school on top of a hellmouth too?

What would you do for 15 minutes of fame?

Chris Crocker, the kid who got his 15 minutes of fame this week by crying on You Tube bc people were making fun of Britney, may actually have the last laugh. He singed a tv development deal this week. Is that all it takes? Ok I have to run now, I am going to tape myself crying over the way Claire died and maybe I will get a role on Mcleods Daughters....

Do you like Pina Coladas? Getting caught in the rain?

Both parties of a married couple in Bosnia were having an affair. Except they were having it with each other & they didn't know it. They were talking in an online chatroom using false screen names.When the finally arranged to meet each other for a date, they realized that the person they were having an "affair" with was really their own spouse!
In other words, the Pina Colada song came true!

2007 Emmy review- part2

Hayden Panettiere- took the Save the Cheerleader, Save the World thing too seriously, I think she has half of California under that dress. She is adorable but this may not have been the best choice. Christina Aguilera & Tony Bennett-amazing performance. I don't know why Christina can't admit she is preggars. It is hard to tell from this pic but she looks ready to give birth. For a minute I thought Tony Bennett was going to be her OB GYN. Sally Field-Gidget looks amazing. She must be about 800 years old now. I was shocked they censored her speech. Who censors the Flying Nun? She was just saying something about if Mother's ruled the world there would not be any wars & they bleeped her out. Unreal. I found this pic of her as Gidget & to be honest she doesn't look that different now!

2007 Emmy Review - part 1

Ryan Seacrest, not that funny but overall he didn't bother me. America Ferrar-so glad that she won. I just wanted them to play America the Beautiful when she walked up on stage. Heidi Va Va Voom Klum looked amazing. Helen Mirren-forget Stacy's mom, this grandma has is going on. She looked fierce. Katherine Heigl-also looked amazing. But when they mispronounced her name I wanted her to say "It's Heigl bitch!" & then start lip syncing like Britney. Portia & Ellen-I loved Portia's dress (although I am still annoyed that she speaks with an American accent, you are from Geelong Portia, don't forget it. How can you not be proud to be Australian?)

Environmental tip of the week

Stop taking a receipt at the ATM! If everyone in the US did this, it would save a roll of paper more then 2 Billion feet long. That's right, I said Billion. That is enough paper to circle the equator 15 times.

Real life Nip/Tuck

A man who was declared dead in Venezuela, woke up in the middle of his autopsy as the doctors were making an incision on his face. The good news is he is alive & fine. I am sure this will show up on the next season on Nip/Tuck which starts on Oct. 30th. I cannot wait, I love this ridiculous show!

Rock of love

FYI my fave line from last weeks episode was when the crazy girl was wasted & crawling on the bar, Jess says "She looks like a cracked out cat." I died a little. We all love Jess but don't really want her to win only bc she can do better then Bret Michaels & whoever he ends up with won't last bc they are going to want to film Rock of Love 2, "The groupies strike back" or whatever cheesy name they come up with. I am pretty sure they are already up to Flavor of Love 17, "Whose your baby daddy?" Anyway, tomorrow's show is "Brett meets the parents." Can't wait!

Top 10 cities for single women in AUS

Ok ladies. The following is a list, according to the ratio of single men to single women, for AUS single women to head to if you are looking to get that baby bonus money! The first city on the list has a ration of 180 men per 100 women. Ironically, the name of that city, is "Singleton"! Good luck and God speed...
1) Singleton, NSW 2) Burdekin / Ayr, Queensland 3) Mackay, Queensland 4) Griffith, NSW 5) Gladstone, Queensland 6) Wollongong, NSW 7) Lithgow, NSW 8) Bunbury, Western Australia 9) Whyalla, South Australia 10) Ballina, NSW

My advice for the day

If for some reason, you happen to have a bottle of red nail polish on the front seat of your car & it happens to be summer & gets really hot, you might want to pick it up instead of leaving it there & just thinking "Oh I will just get it later." Bc it is entirely possible that the heat can cause the glass to break & you will end up with red nail polish all over the fabric in the seat of your car.....TRUST ME.

The Chasers War on Everything

I didn't get a chance to comment on this last week. I think it is so crazy that with all of the security that was at the APEC summit in Sydney, the boys from the Chasers were able to get so close to Pres. Bush. For American's who wouldn't know, it is a show that has 4 guys who go out & perform funny skits or ask ridiculous questions to famous people. It is hard to describe but it is hilarious. Basically they rented a car, & put a Canadian flag on it & made it through 2 security check points. They picked Canada bc they thought no one has issues with Canada. That is funny! I actually love that a lot of the police in Sydney were kind of like "Good on them, they had a laugh!", instead of freaking out as they would have here. You can check out their website below. My fave is when they do the "If life was a musical" act & go into a grocery store or somewhere & break out into song & dance.

Monday, September 10, 2007

The Biggest Loser

I must be a big loser bc I got sucked into the Biggest Loser marathon on the Bravo channel the other day. The new season of the American version starts tomorrow night & Jillian is back. Game on! I can't wait. I was amazed that last year's winner lost over 200 pounds. I can't believe that. It is like he lost the Olsen twins & a Nicole Richie....

MTV's VMA 2007

Ok, I guess I have to go there. For the past few months I have been trying to not write about Brit bc it just isn't funny anymore, it is sad. She had no friends, not family to speak of & obviously no management that she listens to. I think most people were kind of hoping for her to open the MTV awards in a big way. I am sure everyone saw it by now & yes it was a boring train wreck. You could almost see her thinking about the dance moves in her head. I think that she should have practiced instead of partying it up in Vegas the days before the show. But I am getting so annoyed that people are complaining about her body. She had 2 kids & still looks better in a bra & panties then most people. I heard so many guys today say "Oh she put on weight." P-u-l-e-a-s-e, like any of them would have turned her down if she came onto them? haha. Give me a break.

Tearin up her heart

There once was a prince and princess of pop...
How much does Britney wish she could go back in time to this day!

Random thought of the day

I am embarrassed to admit I wasted 1 hour of my life watching Celebrity Rap Star on MTV. But I noticed it is a recycled version of Celebrity Fit Club on VH1. Da Brat, Warren G, & Countess Vaughn were all on Fit Club. (Ok I told you it was a random thought, not an important one)

I'm too sexy for this sexy for this airport..

Last month a 23 year old girl tried to fly on Southwest airlines from California to Arizona. Before she got on the plane an airline employee asked the girl to change her clothes bc she thought that her skirt was too short. When the girl said she didn't have clothes to change into they told her to go home & change. She refused & they finally let her on but demanded that she cover her legs with a blanket for the trip. Since when did stewardesses turn into head mistresses? Seriously she did have a short skirt on but they have some nerve. So if someone shows up wearing a shirt "they" think is too low will they make the person put on a turtleneck? Why don't they worry more about getting the planes to their destinations on time & not losing passengers luggage!

Tastes like chicken? No, sorry, tastes like a newspaper

So there is a new tv show, called CANE, coming out this fall. Rolling Stone magazine will feature "lickable" ads for the show. I am not kidding. When you lick the page it will supposedly taste like a mojito. OMG, I have so many issues here.
Who in their right mind would lick a page in a magazine that possibly many people have had their hands on and/or licked already? You know some idiot is going to get pulled over by the police & use this as an excuse, "No officer, I wasn't drinking, I was licking a magazine." Also I am afraid of what is next, ads for adult diapers that you have to rip the page out & pee on it? Ugh.

Oops, check out those nukes

I got in trouble in work once for forgetting to give my boss at the time a phone message. What happened to these people:
Last week a B-52 bomber plane flew over 3 states in the US for a period of over 3 hours.

What is the big deal you ask? It was carrying nuclear war heads & it was a MISTAKE. But no worries, the Defense dept said the public wasn't in danger. Yeah, ok. Until they mistakenly hit the wrong button and Oops, there goes North & South Dakota. WTF?

Livin la vida Kylie

I just found this clip, obviously a few years old, of Ricky Martin & our Kylie Minogue performing in London together. I love Ricky & Kylie, it was like my worlds collided....

Sad about Steve

It's been 1 year that Steve Irwin died. I can't believe it was 1 year already. I am a little disturbed this week Bindi launched a clothing line, is it necessary to have the same week as the anniversary? But all of the money is going to charity so I guess that makes me feel better.

Please McStop it

Kate Walsh from Grey's Anatomy was married this past weekend. I read so many headlines that said things like, "Kate is McMarried, Walsh is McHitched, They had a McWedding." etc. Get over it people! I don't care about McDreamy, McSinny, McUgly or whoever else is on that McShow. I just know the next thing is one of them is going to have a baby & we are going to read "McWalsh had McSex & had a McBaby." Please from now on only use Mc if it is in front of Donalds. McThanks.

The "Real" World Sydney

I used to love MTV's The Real World (7 strangers picked to live in a house...etc) but I can't watch it anymore, I am just too old & tired of watching the same types of people (an ignorant person, a hot jock guy, a slutty girl, etc.) have the same fights over & over. BUT this season was in Sydney, I am forcing myself & pretty sure that I am losing brain cells each time I watch an episode. I was just looking forward to getting to see AUS on tv here in America, but so far all they have shown is the obligatory shots of the harbour & Opera House. (I apologize in advance to the people in Sydney who will probably be offended by the stupid comments they are sure to make) For ex. 1 of the guys said something like "There are no good looking girls in AUS. " I was like WTF? You have got to be kidding me. The 1 thing I don't like about AUS is there are 2 many pretty girls there, it is too much competition for cute aussie boys! ;)

Guilty pleasure of the week

I am addicted to "Rock of Love" with Bret Michaels, former lead singer of Poison. I thought it was just me until I asked around & many of my friends admitted they can't turn away from it either. Out of all of the girls our fave is Jess (in the photo above) she seems normal & sweet & is really beautiful. How many people can pull off pink hair! The best part of the show is at elimination. Bret gives the girl a "backstage pass" instead of a rose. (Although it would have been better if he gave them a Rose & said "Every rose has it's thorn, will you be mine?") But, & remember the name of the show is Rock of Love, he says, "Will you continue to stay here & Rock my World..." I die a little inside every time he says it.

Mini Me

I was just noticing how Zac Ephron (on the left) looks like a mini me version of Ian Somerhalder from LOST (on the right).

OMG of the month

This so unbelievable. I guess it proves that looks will only get you so far in life. The sad thing is, Mario Lopez, is even looking at her like she is an idiot. Click below to see how Miss South Carolina answers a question in a "beauty" contest.....

Stephen King scares Alice Springs

The author Stephen King was in an Alice Springs bookstore last week & began signing several of his books that were on the shelf, however the people who were working in the store had no idea who he was. Some of the customers noticed & told the manager. They didn't recognize him & thought he was vandalizing the books. Apparently he was scaring people in real life in addition to his writings!

Advice to women

In the past week, FOUR of my friends who are quite skinny, were asked by STRANGERS if they were pregnant. They all happened to be wearing the flowy summer dresses that are in style now, but still. I notice that men never ask this question, especially to someone they don't know. SO my advice is, unless you see the head coming out, or you trip over the umbilical cord, do not assume & please DO NOT ask a woman if she is preggars. Ugh.

Happy Birthday Rick Springfield!

I can't believe Rick is 58! He was my first celebrity crush, I saw his movie, Hard to Hold, in the theaters. I was a superfan. Remember, in the 80's we didn't have the internet. I had every Teen Beat, Tiger Beat, etc with him in it. I am not sure if Aussie's realize how big he was here bc he wasn't that popular in AUS. Check out this clip below, OMG, I am blown away by the fashion in the 80's, the bright suits, the skinny ties, what were we thinking!

Our Keith

Here are some pics that I took of Our Keith Urban in concert. He was amazing, but I did have several problems:
1-He is married to Nicole and not to me.
2-There were so many girls at the show dressed like trash, with miniskirts and cowboy hats that I felt like Britney Spears exploded all over the place.
3-Keith did not pull me on stage to serenade me.
4-He didn't wear any aussie gear. I really wanted him to rock up in an Akubra or Drizzybone!
5-He didn't sing any aussie songs, I was hoping for Waltzing Matilda, but it didn't happen.
