We Breed Them HOT In Australia

Some of you may have noticed the absence of the Eye Candy section..surprisingly no one has commented though!

Thanks to 'Kellie' I just have to post this fabulous eye candy.
Some of us will remember him as Vinnie Patterson on Home And Away, some will remember him as Jay on Summerland, and if you've discovered 'True Blood' you will know him as Jason...... yes, it really is RYAN KWANTEN

Feast your eyes and never say I don't do anything for you!!

Drop In And Visit

We did Little Women for book group this month and discovered this gorgeous home.

This is where Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women and it is the inspiration for the home the March Family lived in! I love finding treasures like this.

Drop In And Visit

My Mum and Dad have just returned from 8 weeks in France, Spain and Portugal - bugger them - and this is the castle gatehouse that they lived in while in the Loire Valley. Bugger them!

Drop In And Visit

I'm starting to think about lighting up my house for Christmas. I love the up-lighting on their second storey.

Funnest Night Ever -or- High School Musical Premiere

I haven't had time to blog as I have been way too busy attending Movie Premieres and walking red carpets!!!

I know - how fun!

I am a virgin at the red carpet and what better movie to lose my virginity to than High School Musical 3? So appropriate really.

My equally sad and daggy friend (you may know who I am talking about) had two tickets to the Melbourne premiere and knowing just how much I would love it, took me along to share the joy.

I can not even begin to tell you how much fun we had! In fact I get all smiley just thinking about it... This is the red carpet. Screaming fans, flash bulbs, screaming fans, etc etc. For a brief and shining moment I felt kind of famous.

On entering the theatre we scored the two front row seats, smack in the middle. Not so good for movie viewing you may be thinking, but Oh so good for star viewing!!!

Here are Ashley Tisdale (Sharpai) and Vanessa Hudgens (Gabriella) literally 4 foot from us. It was surreal.

The best was yet to come!!!

Within lunging distance stood THIS MAN....... The delicious Zac Efron (Troy, or Link if you are a Hairspray fan)

I really think my dear friend was concerned that I may try to make a grab for him! I took this photo without a zoom so you can see how close we were. Sigh!!!!

It was a fabulous, hilarious, night and to top it all off the movie was everything it should have been.

And for those of you who aren't sharing the Zac love - here are a few shots to give you an idea of why I was fairly pleased to be sharing the same air with him. Enjoy.

And All That Jazz...

It's taken me a week to recover from Halloween and I've just realised all the Christmas decorations are up in the supermarket!!! I think I'll give poor Surfer Boy at least a week of a decoration-free home before I go nuts on the Chrissy lights. (I did pick up the cutest santa shaped cookie jar yesterday which had him rolling his eyes and sighing. Oh well)

I went to the most amazing performance on Saturday night. It was at the Collingwood Town Hall, and it was the Body Electric Dancers!

My lovely friend - let's call her...Miss Sassy - joined an adult Jazz dance class recently and Saturday night was their big end of year extravaganza. Now these dancers are a whole lot more than your average dance troupe, they are in their 30's and 40's, they are artists, teachers, jewellers, hairdressers, they are anyone and everyone and co-ordination and rhythm do not seem to be prerequisites.
They attend weekly classes to learn the routines and come November they break out the sequins and spandex to perform to those of us not gutsy enough to do it ourselves!

As soon as the first group hit the stage I knew I was in for a treat. With tears of laughter on my cheeks I cheered and woo-hooed with an audience who fully appreciated every step and jazz hand. Some of the dancers were completely unko, stiff and travelling regularly in the wrong direction but gee they were having a ball. Some, such as Miss Sassy, were actually very good but hammed it up just enough to let you know they knew their limitations.

I applaud each and every dancer and thank them for an absolutely brilliant and joyous night of dancing.
