From the Universe

The only way to get what you really want, is to know what you really want.
And the only way to know what you really want, is to know yourself.
And the only way to know yourself, is to be yourself.
And the only way to be yourself, is to listen to your heart.
I do,

The weekly rant..

I love Antiques Roadshow. They play it here on an afternoon, and if I leave work on time (or maybe a little bit early..tee hee) I get to settle down with a cup of tea to enjoy the wide varied English accents I don't get to here so much down under, and get to marvel at how valuable people little trinkets are.

I also enjoy watching the faces of the owners.. pretending that they are surprised that their great great aunties ugly vase cost $500. I like to look for the whiff of disappointment when they find out that it is as not so rare as they thought. Most cover it really well, but next time you watch just remember... it's in the eyes!

I got to thinking how these days: the days of multi manufactured, conveyor belt, made in China, flat pack, throw away society, would these pieces nowadays make it to be antiques of the future?

Come with me... to 2167, or thereabouts. Michael Aspel has been defrosted from his chriogenic resting place especially for this comeback extravaganza.. a new series of Antiques Roadshow..

"So what do we have here? A lovely little piece from the famous swiss furniture manufacturer, IKEA... very popular around the early 2000 era. Fantastically preserved, made from a laminated MDF you know, absolutely remarkable! Shame it's worth bugger all, but an absolutely fabulous piece nonetheless. Thanks for bringing it all the way down here!"

Everybody Needs Good Neighbours

Sorry the photo is so dark. One of the occupants was outside round the corner and I was scared he would see me and come at me with a baseball bat or pipe wrench or something else in his heavy outdoor artillary.

Sooooo glad you don't live next door huh!

From the Universe

A mirror never lies, and neither does time and space as a reflection of what you're thinking.

If you put it out there, it has to come back. No matter how much it weighs, glitters, or costs.

It's the law -

Room 101

Tosser alert! This is Kyle Sandilands.
Really this guy needs to be locked up in Pentridge Prison, but locking him in Room 101 is a nice aternative.
Rude, arrogant, takes great pleasure in insulting people or trying to shock them. All he actually succeeds in doing is making himself look like a dipstick.
I see him on TV and I am actually embarrassed for him. Locking him up could be considered as being for his own safety and dignity.
