Grey's Anatomy

Did anyone watch the finale last night?! I have never cried so much in a tv show in my life! The best season finale I've ever seen in a drama show! It was so well done and so intense and made me cry so damn much! I bought the snow patrol song they used in the show off itunes last night, 'chasing cars'. What a great song. I've always liked snow patrol, but now I love them! Sigh... such an incredible show. I am seriously moved. I want to cry every time I hear the song now. That show has such incredible character development and really sucks me in. Such a well written show! I am totally hooked. Wish I'd started watchig it earlier. I only started watching it when the code black this happened about 8 or so episodes ago. I'll have to get my hands on some earlier episodes I think.

Guess what?! I'm NOT at the Darfur rally/benefit concert. I'm so annoyed! I was at the train station with Rob, ready to get on the train and head into the city when I got a phone call from work asing if I could come in 15 minutes early. I forgot I was working today! Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!! So I'm at work right now. Damnit!

The Make Poverty History Concert tickets went up today. You have to win them in an SMS competition. That's how they're raising the funds I guess. Good idea, except that I can't win tickets! :( Wire managed to win tickets. I hate him right now... Someone take me if they win tickets? I'll keep trying...

How cool is this?

Don't forget! NOISE for Darfur, this Saturday 28 Oct, 12–6pm @ Federation Square, Main Stage.

I went and saw Boytown with a few people on Friday night. Great movie! It's really great Aussie comedy. I expected it to be ok and kinda funny, but it was really good! Funnier than I thought it would be. It certainly won't go down as one of the best movies of all time, but it's well worth a watch. Seeing Glenn Robbins in leather pants is slightly (ok, very) disturbing, but highly amusing at the same time! I love Bob Franklin! He cracks me up! I don't usually like Mick Malloy (he wrote and starred in it), but he is quite good in this. I despise his radio show, he's so disgusting sometimes (or often!)

It has the funniest dodgy boy band music ever! See the boys used to be in a boy band in the 80's. They were the original boyband, now they want to get the band back together, and it doesn't work at all. So they start writing music for women their own age. Very funny! Some of the song titles are: I cry, special time (of the month), picking the kids up from school, and love handles. Check it out! It's very funny!

*Sob Sob*

They still haven't called me. I'm not sure why they keep telling me they'll call me if they're not going to. :(

ANOTHER Update...

So it seems that fox keeps telling me one thing and doing another. Let's hope it's for real (just for you Wire) this time! Or for fake, which ever one works. Ok, so no one except Wire will get that. But that's ok. Anyway, it seems that I am going to precord the segment at 2pm tomorrow and I'll be on the Hamish & Andy show tomorrow. Let's hope that's true this time...

I've had a great 24 hours! First of all my friend Brandon from Canada (who I lived near in Tassie) was flying home to Canada and had an overnight layover in Melb, so he stayed at my place last night. He also bought another friend of his from Canada (who is currently living in the Barossa Valley SA) with him, Dave. By the way, I just LOVE the Canadian accent!!! So I picked the boys up from the airport and we headed out to dinner. Dave got a ridiculously big bowl of risotto that he a third of the way through, I did about the same with a giant bowl of pasta. Sofia's serves up giant meals! I'd forgotten how big they were! After that we headed home, watched some tv, then off to bed.

In the morning we got up super early (for me anyway) and drove to the airport. We dropped Brandon off, had some interesting luggage fun, got a parking fine, then Dave & I headed into the city for the day. It was fun showing someone around, I got to see some stuff I don't usually bother with. We had some late breakfast at a nice cafe, then went to the art gallery at Federation Square. I love art galleries. I don't go enough! Then we wandered through the main shopping strech of the city, got some sushi and went to the botanical gardens for a picnic lunch. What a perfect day! It was such great weather too! Then we headed back to my place for a while, played a bit of pool, then I took Dave to the airport.

I've had such a nice day. I was slightly trepidacious about hanging out with someone I'd never met before, but he was great and I had a great time. I'm pretty sure he did too. Yay!

Ok, so it looks like I'll be on air tomorrow @ about 5:45pm. I'm so excited!!! I thought there was a prize at the end of the week and there were lots of people in the running. Turns out there are only 2 people a day for 5 days. So I'm already in the top 10. And I thought there was a prize at the end of the week. Turns out someone wins every day! So now the chance is 1 in 2! WHOO!!! I want to go to the ARIA's in Sydney!!!


Looks like I'll be on the Hamish & Andy show tomorrow, not today. :( I was so psyched about it...

I'm Famous! AGAIN!!!

Listen to Hamish & Andy tomorrow (Monday!)! I'm going to be on!!!

Check it out! I'm in the new 'Charlotte's Web' trailer. Sure I'm so small you can't see me, but that's not the point! I'm in it! I'm not sure if you remember, but I worked as an extra on the movie last year. Check out the trailer here.

More photos from Tassie! This is a photo of Amy and her new baby Ezra. He had his one month birthday while I was there. He is so adorable! I want to steal him! Not in an actual stealing him kind of way if anyone from law enforcement is reading this.

And here's a close up of Ezra, it's a bit of an odd photo, he was grumpy and tired, but he's just so cute!

Amy & I doing our standard Zoolander face. I seem to have a lot of photos of me and someone doing a Zoolander face. What a great face!

And this is Paul, Josh & myself (from left to right). Paul is trying to make himself look as tall as Josh... I love these boys, it was so awesome to see them again!

I'm so excited! Hamish & Andy are running a competition at the moment where you can win tickets to the ARIA's. What you have to do is sing any jingle you want on any instrument you want. So I registered on the website and I got a call this arfternnon from one of the associate producers asking me to sing my stuff on Monday! Whoo!!! I'm going to do the cotties cordial jingle, but I've re-written it in the style of a corny power ballad. Oh yeah! I'm so excited!!!

Last night I headed out to see Zoophyte at Veludo's. They were sooooooo incredible! One of the best gigs I've been to in a long time! Their music rocked! I actually think they are better live than recorded. I did buy a cd last night. I'm loving it! I've listened to it a few times already today! If you can, get along to a show of theirs. They are so amazing!

Howie & Jenny have the best wedding photos I think I have ever seen! Check them out! I want this photographer! Incredible!

Tassie Photos!

Finally I hear you say! Sorry I've been so slack, but I took so many photos, I had to sort through them all, then resize them for the web. Let's launch into it shall we! This is Biz & Kris towards the end of the reception. I can't be bothered sorting them into chronological order, so you'll have to put up with them in alphabetical order!

Biz & I at the reception. It was in a big marquee at her Father's church.

Another photo of Biz & I at the reception. Doesn't she look stunning?!

Biz just after the ceremony. It was at Liffey Falls, hence all the rainforresty looking stuff in the background. It was so stunning! What a great place to have a wedding. They're just lucky the weather was good in Tassie in October! Big Risk!

A shot during the ceremony with a blueish filter on my camera.

Brandon & I. He was a groomsman, and is about to head back to Canada. He'll be staying with me next week before he heads home actually. Doesn't he scrub up nicely?

Cutting the cake!

This is the wedding cake! While Biz & Kris are very cool and alternative, they also have the whole sci-fi thing going on, so they had a dalek cake! For those of you totally confused, it's a doctor who thing.

2 of the Groomsmen, Dan & Brandon, just after the cermony. Aren't they looking hot? Yay for Dan's hair!

This is Dan, myself & Bowen at the reception. Isn't Bowen hot? Oh yes. Ladies, control yourselves.

Geri & I just after the ceremony.

Kris & I at the reception. Isn't he looking so happy? I just want to squeeze his cheeks!

This is Kris just before the ceremony. Still a single man!

This is me & the very cool band 'safety first'. These guys played at the reception and are made up of students from the school in Poatina, where I was a teacher a few years ago. I feel old now.

Another shot from the ceremony where Janelle (Dan's wife) is doing a Bible reading.

Again, from the ceremony. This is Dan singing the song 'red prickle beard'. Great song. He sang an amazing version of it!

This is Safety First! Whoo!!! I was very impressed with them as a band! Joe is on guitar and singing. He was a year 10 student of mine, now in year 12. The drummer is Isaac who was a year 9 student of mine, now in year 11, and Doyle is on bass. I didn't teach him, he moved to the school the year after I left and is now in year 12 too. They made me feel old!

And this is Kris & Biz signing the register to make it all official and legal. Awwwww!

Hamish & Andy!

On Friday Kathryn & I headed down to the Jam Factory where Hamish & Andy were broadcasting live from the premiere of Boytown. I can't wait to see it! Anyway, I love Hamish & Andy. For those of you who don't know they have a radio show and a tv show here. They are unbelievably talented guys who are so very clever and so very funny. They make me laugh harder than anyone else! And it doesn't hurt that they are totally hot. :) I also got to meet some other celebrities while I was there. The evidence it at hand! But before I get into my photos, here is a pick from the new movie Boytown. Haha!

This is Hamish & Andy. Yes, I am aware they have their pants off. They have this thing called pants off Friday. They reckon that the best way to relax is to have your pants off, because then you can really chill out, so they do the show every Friday not wearing pants. Their live broadcast just happened to fall on a Friday! Haha! And because it was a red carpet thing they wore their tux's, but no pants. I love it!

Here are a few guys who decided to take their pants off too!

Mick Malloy, Bert Newton, Andy Lee & Hamish Blake.

Ryan Shelton & I

Hamish Blake & I

Andy Lee & I

Andy is in a really awesome band called Zoophyte which I'm going to see on Thursday night. Whoo! It also doesn't hurt that I totally have a crush on him at the moment.

If you don't know who any of these people are, look them up at IMDB.

Do You Know?

Apparently there is significance of dreaming of broken teeth. Can anyone tell me what it is? I can't remember. I dreamt of brothen teeth the other night. And it's a line in a song I love by Bob Evans.

Gig @ Barbukka

Just thought I'd give a short report on the gig last night. We had stack of fun! A huge thanks to everyone who came down and supported us. It really does mean a lot! Thought I'd post some photos. It's going to take me longer to get the photos from my Tassie trip together, get ready for another onslaught! You know how I love those photos!

I'm so glad the gig was last night! If it had been tonight I wouldn't have been able to do it. I had a bit of a scrathy throat yesterday, and mixed with travel sickness I was feeling pretty yucky. But today I woke up with a swollen throat and blocked sinuses. I'm feeling pretty bad. Whing whinge whine whine.

I'm Back!

The title says it all.

Gig tonight! Come along!

Tassie report still to come.
