May the odds be ever in your favour

This could not be more true.

Although I obviously didn't think  about the kind of crowd that would be at a 
6.45 pm session of The Hunger Games on a Friday night, in general half my age,
I did dig the fact that I could walk into the cinema and enjoy a little bottle of vino to myself 
and then not have to wait outside the freezing cinema for the folks to pick me up.

Have you read the books? 
I devoured the three in a week over the Christmas holidays and whilst reading 
I was Team Gale but after seeing the movie I think I may be leaning towards Team Peta.

Yep that's me contemplating the important things in life!!!!

K25 A walk down memory lane

Using a hairbrush microphone and dancing The Locomotion in the mirror

Wishing I was singing Especially For You wrapped in Jason Donovan's embrace
(oh yes i just publicly admitted that!)

Camping out for concert tickets

Having plenty of time,while waiting in line for hours to meet the lady and get my book signed, to think of something memorable to say to her and blubbering "your so beautiful" (genius!)

Walking the streets of Chelsea while living in London in the hopes that I would 
casually bump into her (and imagining we would become life long friends based on the fact that we were both Melbournians).

Taking my niece to her first (second and third) Kylie concerts

Crying at her triumphant  Showgirl Homecoming tour after the cancer battle

Feeling like my boobs may explode because I'd left a six week old baby 
at home to go to the KylieX2008 show.

Oh the list goes on, sure they may not be defining life moments but Miss Kylie Minogue has been a constant in my life, even when it wasn't cool to be a fan.

Never have I been so excited to stand in a smelly back alley as I was 
on Sunday as I waited for Kylie's Anti Tour. 

No dancers, no costume changes and no hits. It was B-sides and rarities and it was BRILLIANT!!

I can't wait to see what else she has in store for K25, but the anti-tour sure will be hard to top

After being house ridden for the past week with a back injury, I'll be glad 
to get back into the real world today and out of the Hamptons.

While recuperating I got stuck into Revenge, to the point that last night after watching 
16 episodes over the weekend, I was dreaming about the characters.
 I haven't been this obsessed with a TV series in a long time.
If you love a good drama and a bit of over-acting I highly suggest you 
jump onto itunes and play catch up

That guy

I believe sharing is caring and because I know a few of y'all get a little hot under the 
collar at the mere mention of the words Ryan Gosling, I thought you 
might like a squiz at these to start the weekend off on the right step.

This open letter to Mr Gosling is probably my favourite.
I swear Megan O'Keefe was reading my mind

Then there's 

and possibly my favourite

 just incase you haven't had enough

Your welcome

as this is now my personal reference point for all things G-man I'm just going to keep adding

Rainy Days, Lazy Days

It was hard to remember, after looking out the window this morning, that it was less than a week ago that we were sweltering in the last of the summer heat.

Today's goal was to keep the rainy day boredom at bay.

We played Hide & Seek.

Although this usually lasts all of ten minutes because either the little chic can't find me
 and gets into a panic or by round 2 she tells me she doesn't know where to hide 
and can't quite grasp the fact that if I tell her where to hide I'll know where she is!!!!

Passed sometime drawing

followed by making lunch
(with a little bit of cheek!)

Cheesymite scrolls (or mighty mights as they are known here) are always 
popular lunch choice in these parts so I thought I'd finally attempt 
them at home using THIS recipe from

Waiting for them to cool down was the hardest part.

* Now considering I started writing this at lunch time on Thursday and am now
 publishing it on Friday morning, I guess we managed to skip the boredom.

But what next?
