Strange Bannerisms

Aha! I spy a difference to the look of my blog. Well, maybe that's because I'm the one who put it there. I know what you're all thinking. 'Man, that is a sweet banner'. But it is for a serious cause. Click on it, please. Aussies go to and learn how you can get involved. Buy a white band and wear it proudly, especially on Friday the 1st of July which is one of numerous global white band days. G got her's mailed from the Uk and no sooner does she receive them than we actually get the campaign launched here. Go Figure. And get on board! I'm writing letters to two of my local MPs.

And it's 12 days to the USA!!! Omigod. I am so totally unprepared for this trip. Fweee!

And I got my *signed* Hornblower DVD back yesterday. *faints* Ioan Gruffudd actually touched it! LOL ok that is a bit weird. It's signed, that's what counts...right?

Anyway we went to the ballet tonight, it was a triple bill called 'White', all Ballets blanc. La Bayedere was excellent and so was Suite en Blanc, which incidentally is the first ballet I ever saw, but Relic, to me at least, was pretentious. And the costumes were flesh coloured! They're meant to be WHITE. My tastes are old fashioned though. Give me a classic feature length ballet with a heart-wrenching love story over a cutting-edge modern work any day. I've never been a big fan of flexed-foot ballet. And I've just realised that I've hardly listened to triple J at all or any rock music for about 2 weeks - it's either been Michael Bublé or ABC Classic or 3MBS. Weird.

whee! got a new phone

So, I've finally bitten the bullet and retired my faithful old Nokia 8310 this afternoon. I'm sure I'll still use it when I don't want it stolen, because it's an old black and white lump. Anyway my new one is all flashy and colourscreened and camera equipped and shit. I like it, although I still feel loyal to the old one. Especially as it still has all my old numbers in it! For some reason they didn't save on my sim card, so now I have to spend an hour transferring them. This should be fun. Anyway I think it's the same one that G has ( I already have a photo of Michael Bublé as my wallpaper :)

I've just been told that Ioan Gruffudd was able to sign my Hornblower DVD after all. Yay! I seriously thought they wouldn't have time because they all looked majorly tired. So this is a nice surprise :)

And I'm seeing Mr and Mrs Smith tonight - hope it's good!

I went to Rove!

Yes indeedy, I went to Rove. It's be exciting anyway - it was my third time so the excitement is still there - but this time we were seeing Ioan Gruffudd! In the flesh! Right there in front of us! Excuse me for being an obsessed fangirl for one second but...*squeals*

OK, so we didn't get to meet him or anything, but we got to sit in *the* green room (which is actually blue) as well as the less pretty room behind the studio. And Jimmy Barnes walked straight past me. that was cool :)

So this was the first time that we were sitting in the front secton right in front of Rove's desk. I was hoping for the section on the other side in front of the couches, but I take what I can get. I still had a good view of Ioan anyway :)

In the ad break before the Big Brother evictee with the scary piercing, they gave us lollies and I got a big fat Redskin. And, typical, the moment I put it in my mouth, the floor manager yells '30 seconds!' so I had to sit with it in my mouth and try and chew surreptitiously when they weren't filming the audience. and then one of my friends went to the loo in the break befor ethe Fantastic Four came onand got back as they were finishing the ad break - they almost didn't let her in but relented and let her sit on Pete and Corinne's armchairs for the first segment.

Anyway, on to the important topic of me perving on Ioan. Yes, he was very gorgeous, a tiny little bit shorter than I thought, but nowhere near as tiny as Rove, who is puny in real life (kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiii-desu!!!). He had kinda flat-ironed hair, which was weird, and Michael Chiklis teased him, saying it was his 'There's Something About Mary' hair (the font was sticking straight up). The interview was good but we couldn't hear all of it that well - they don't mike them for the studio, something to do with feedback I think. I loved the stretchy Mr Fantastic Doll - gotta getme one of them! And Julian McMahon's accent was strange - a very strong hybrid between American and Australian.

After the show we got cake :) it's was the floor manager's birthday and she offered us some of her birthday cake. As we were leaving, one of the Channel Ten people came up and offered to take our DVDs that we wanted signed and promised to try and ask Ioan at some point during the night. I haven't got my hopes up but it would be nice.

And then yesterday I totally cocked up my psych exam. Life's like that - spend an evening at a live television show, and that's that many hours less that you spend studying.

Oh and I am in love with Michael Buble. His new album is great, and as he says, he is a 'human aphrodisiac - a walking oyster'!

an example of how lucky you can get with a digital point-and-shoot - this was taken from a car at a roadside fruit stall in the middle of nowhere Posted by Hello

I think I'm pixelated

so, I just put up a photo. Now y'all know what I looked like about 18 months ago. Nothing much has changed, except in real life I'm not so blurry. I did have bright red streaks but on monday I dyed it jet black - I'm very lazy about the whole thing and carroty orange was starting to look a tad skanky.

And we're going to Lollapalooza! This trip just gets better and better. The Black Keys - wOOt!!! I was so cut that I missed them at Falls this year.

oooooooh I can smell roast good thing about mum being away is we get to eat stuff like this...although she is coming back tomorrow which I'm happy about...and apparently she's gone overboard with the shopping in Singapore/Johor! Sweet.
