I just succumbed and took the quiz - Who's Your Hollywood Hunk?
Apparently it's James Franco!

Here's what they said -
Laid back and totally easy going. Easy to joke with and fun to be around, James Franco will compliment your funny persona. He won't be afraid to mess with you and be the kind of lover who you want. Easy to be around but willing to please you in any way possible.

I have to say I'm happy with that... especially when he looks like this...

Maybe she should ditch the heels?

Has Tom's head shrunk?

Chalk has a Little Lamb!

Those of you who have visited CHALK this week may have noticed our fabulous new product - Little Lamb Jewellery.

We are thrilled to be the FIRST EVER stockist of Caitlin's new jewellery.

Caitlin Boyce has developed a wonderful and whimsical range of bangles, bracelets and necklaces specially for the young jewellery lover. Those of us who are lucky enough to own Caitlin's
pieces ourselves can now buy a mini version for someone special in our lives.
The bangles and bracelets come in two sizes, infant (0-2) and child (2 up). You can choose
from five gorgeous charms - fawn, lamb, rabbit, elephant, or bird, and these can be made in sterling silver or if you are feeling like a little extra glamour, 9ct gold.

Each piece is beautifully packaged and comes complete with it's own crocheted Little Lamb, and information about Little Lamb's support of orphaned children in rural Bangladesh.
They really are divine - I even have the elephant necklace myself and believe me, I would have the bracelet if I could convince her to make one to fit me!

17 of 17

It was a hard night at our place tonight - Both the kids barrack for the Doggies and I have been a Sainta since the womb. As a family we tend to support the Bulldogs as we live and work in the midst of them and quite frankly it can be bad for your health not to barrack for the Dogs when you live in the West.
But when push comes to shove it is always the red, white and black that steals my allegiance.
My dad was heavily involved in the club when I was growing up and we spent every home game watching from the members dining room with the footballers wives. It was the glamour era of Trevor Barker, Michael Roberts etc and I loved every moment - although how much actual footy I watched is debatable.
I am by no means an avid supporter but it amazes me the feelings that stir when I do watch the boys in action. I love the Doggies, but the Saints are in my blood, a part of my history and I was so proud to be a St Kilda supporter when I watched tonight's game.

I'm not a fan of Sienna Miller in theory but I have to admit she is my secret style idol. There is something very natural about her style and it always seems to look effortless.

Wish I looked like that when I got petrol!!

The Amazing Sarah Buxton

Sarah Buxton in my absolute favourite singer/songwriter. No matter how I am feeling Sarah manages to make me feel amazing. Songs such as 'That Kind of Day' fire me up and make me laugh and 'Innocence' is the only song I know of that has made me cry every time I have listened to it. Sarah is from Kansas, but now lives in Nashville and one day I am going to get to see her play live! (well, I'm going to try)

Here is Sarah's newest offering which I love - Enjoy

Oh and I forgot to mention - Sarah wrote Keith Urban's hit, Stupid Boy!!! I love a link to Keith!

Emma Watson

Over at STARS HOLLOW I posted some shots of Emma Watson's Burberry campaign. I couldn't resist showing you these as well. Just beautiful. Looks like Hermione has well and truly grown up.

What I Wouldn't Give...

The lovely Nicky who works with Surfer Boy, and shares my love of cowboy boots must have heard about my birthday present 'cause she just sent me this....

How fabulous are they. Do you think anyone would actually be seen with me if I turned up in them? Sadly, I think not - maybe Nicky?

Zac Me Up

I'm in need of a little Zac in my day today!

Aaaaah! That's better - Suddenly I have an extra spring in my step!

Roller Girl

As you know I got roller skates for my birthday and have been for a couple of skates around the neighbourhood - in the process realising that I am not quite as good as I thought I was!!!
I found this today and it really put me to shame. It has made me realise though that all I may be missing is a boom box and some rock'n tunes.

Now I Really Feel Dumb - Ta Alex

Which way is the bus below traveling?
To the left or to the right?

Can't make up your mind?

Look carefully at the picture again.

Still don't know?

Kinder kids all over U.K. were shown this picture asked the same question.

90% of the kinder kids gave this answer.

"The bus is traveling to the right."

When asked,

"Why do you think the bus is traveling to the right?"

They answered:
"Because you can't see the door to get on the bus."

How do you feel now???

I know, me too.

Google Horror - warning, spoilers ahead

I have discovered that as much as I love watching my favourite TV shows on DVD, sometimes it comes back and bites me on the arse.
Take One Tree Hill for example. I have been having a wonderful couple of months working my way through the first three seasons, blissfully unaware of upcoming story lines. Until recently that is!! I have got a friend hooked too, as we all need someone to share the joy, and we stupidly read the back cover of Season 4 only to discover that a much beloved character is dead. This meant that for the last half of season three we have been waiting for the awful deed to happen. We have learnt our lesson and HAVE NOT read the back of season 5.

R.I.P. Keith Scott

This is not the end of my tragedy - You may already know but I have a huge girl-crush on one of the characters, Brooke Davis, played by Sophia Bush. She and Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) are finally back together and all is right in my world....

UNTIL I did something monumentally stupid and googled!! Never, ever google unless you are prepared for the consequences.

While trawling for 'Lucas Scott' pictures to go over at 'Stars Hollow' I was confronted with THIS.... (AVERT YOUR EYES ALISON)

Even for those of you who have no idea who I am talking about it is pretty obvious that the girl sharing LUCAS' BED is NOT in fact the lovely Brooke!
Maybe it is for the best and hopefully by the time Peyton does end up in Lucas' bed I will have reconciled myself to the fact and Brooke (and I) will have moved on.

So heed my advice and DO NOT GOOGLE a beloved show unless you are prepared to stand by your decision.
