There is much debate over whether he is staging the whole 'flipped out' routine but the majority of people seem to think he is genuinely struggling with some major demons. He has a history of instability and drug dependence.
This brings me to the point of my post. I was wondering in the light of this what people thought of Ben Stiller impersonating Joaquin at the Oscar's?
I found it treading that very fine line between humour and plain bad taste that I guess is what comedians are so good at. I just felt that although it was wickedly on the money, should we be ridiculing a man who clearly may have mental health issues?
What do you think?

Mine are green but you get the general idea.
I was going to the movies with 10 other girls and Surfer Boy told me that if I didn't wear them then he would know that I didn't like his present! Sneaky bastard. I wore them.... I will keep wearing them and even better Gidget suggested I add other lego to them and guess what, it works. Tonight I came out with various additions and a lego man hanging off each. I think that is what I will wear next time we go out with his mates.
I wonder what I'll get for my birthday?

One of the hundreds of C.F.A. firefighters who are still coping with the fires.
For those of you who may be reading this from another part of the world, this is the beautiful township of Marysville in Victoria which has suffered so tragically in the fires.
And here is a view courtesy of the channel 10 chopper of Marysville as it is today.
With fears that the death toll may reach 300 and fires still burning out of control the news is mind numbing but with the ongoing support of Victorians, and all Australians Marysville, Kinglake, St. Andrews and all the other decimated towns will slowly heal and rebuild.

When I got home today I found a comment in my email from a lovely lady who lived next door to this home for 20 years! She gave me some of it's history and has passed on the contact information of the couple who live there. Apparently they are very gracious and are more than happy to talk with people about their home. In my post I mentioned that I would love to see it in Summer. She thinks they would be more than happy to send me some photos - I can't wait to see if they reply - off to email them now. Thank you Bluebirdy.

I love listening to great songs at the shop because the acoustics are so great and you can sing along without being able to hear your own voice. There was even a bit of dancing going on today.
The song in question is 'Summertime Guys' by Nikki Cleary.
I tried to add the song to this site but it was beyond me! Unfortunately it doesn't have a film clip but here it is from Youtube with a Kim Possible clip. Let me know your favourite summer track.

Now I can kick back and relax and let the pool boy do the hard work!
