Hello! Bonjour! Willkommen!

They shall grow not old,
As we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning
We will remember them. Lest we Forget

Anzac Biscuits

1 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1 level teaspoon baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons boiling water

Mix dry ingredients, melt butter & syrup together in small saucepan. Dissolve soda in boiling water, add to dry ingredients. Cook until golden brown on 180c

And my shame while writing this rather solemn post is that I have a Cava fuelled hangover courtesy of Liliana at the George and Dragon rendering me quite useless for anything other than rest and recuperation before the opening of Nervous Stephens exhibition tonight.

I’ve just woken up. I have news to report on the furthering career of Wendy James from last night but my two crumpets with morello cherry and rose jam haven’t quite sunk in and I think I need another Milo.

P.S. My DIY book for home wiring and lighting came in the post today. It is a big think hard back like a kids book! I can make like Sam Fox – “Nothings Gonna Stop Me Now”

Oh my GOD! She looks like Prancehall in drag!

Dear Summer

Yesterday I went into the Old Man Umbrella shop with friend to buy an umbrella. There was an exquisite selection of lady’s brollies in the corner with chocolate brown fabrics and mauve tassles. But the air was crisp and the sun was shining and I didn’t feel like I needed a new umbrella yesterday. I thought that soon Spring would bounce into my life and Summer would be on the doorstep.

But urgh. No. I didn’t even need to open my eyes today to know that it was grey and miserable and raining. Winter – you are not very popular with me.

Apart from the smell of newsprint on the back seat of a car on a hot Summer’s day in the 80’s, the opression in the tube carriages in the 00’s and inflated travel prices online there is not a lot I dislike about you Summer. I don’t need to wear all my clothes at once, in fact I can wear very few. Tights good bye! Sunglasses hello! Mango, barbeque, smiles and lobster. Good looking men appear in Summer – all the dark woolly hats and grey scarves matching the “non beard beard” on their face dissapears. Finally we can see you.

Summer, please come soon. I know you are still working in Australia and a Summer there is far better than any Summer could be here in Britain, but there is something quaint and pretty about British people pinking themselves up in Soho parks. And I have a friend who could use some Summer in his life too. Please come soon.

Thanks you for taking the time to listen to me,

Your friend

Sorry pets, I have been neglecting you for a number of days I know. Please call the RSPCA if you feel the neglect has been too much. :(

Yesterday was Australia Day!

I sent a text around to my friends to excite them into – I don’t know – something. Covvo replied saying “Oh I forgot it was Australia day”. The Witch said “I’m having a Milo right now!!” And the typical British Gent, Alex T responded with a picture text of a ‘gang’ of – who I can only assume to be – Australians [they looked equally British!] outside a pub, drinking. He attached the message “This is why I will not be celebrating Australia day today.” At least he wasn’t saying I turned him of Australians.

Let’s celebrate some great Australians!

Phar Lap!

Errol Flynn

Just for the record, he is also Tasmania.

Acca Dacca

Check out Angus’ license to sell hot dogs. [He's fly is low in a live show.]

Dame Edna Everage AND Jason Donovan

Early 90’s Australian Pop


I have had this band EUPHORIA on my mind for like ages now – but I couldn’t remember the life of me. I thought I would be easier to trawl through the internet that have to call my sister and sing all the songs to her. We both used to dance around the house to this. And Drx will totally choke – this song even has a SAXAPHONE solo. I hate the saxaphone. I like REALLY hate it.

The ugly woman with the brown frizzy hair was the main vocalist but in the first #1 single Love You Right the blonde one lip synced all the way through. Which was bad cause it happened at the same time Milli Vanilla got caught out. I didn’t give a shit about that – I liked the songs anyway.

Melissa – Read My Lips

Can you remember clubbing back in ‘91? Those two tone jeans were soooo cool. Down in Hobart we would hear all these stories about Three Faces and Chasers [two cool clubs in Melbourne] and I imagined everyone was dressed like that.
Anyway, this song was pretty hilarious as it was easy to sing along with your lyrics – but offensive. I mean instead of “Read my lips” it was “Suck my clit” etc etc. Melissa also had an incredible song called Sexy is the Word.

Collette – Ring My Bell

This wasn’t my favourite one of hers – I preferred ummm… hang on Wikipedia… All I Wanna Do Is Dance but there is only one video of it on YouTube.

Not only is this an awesome rendition of So Excited by Dannii Minogue when she was still in Young Talent Time but also some of her fashion designs on show! Dannii actually designed a range of clothing for K-mart as I recall.

So folks, these are the hot Australian fashions in 1987.

Speaking of hot fashions from 1987, here is the video PaperRad and Paul made in Ireland. Jacob is coming to stay on the 20th and I’m so Excited. Just like Dannii Minogue! I need some Vapoorize! [Did you see that on TV last night?]
