RIP Tony Hart

RIP Tony Hart 1925-2009
I used to love Take Hart & HartBeat (I can still remember the title tune) and of course Morph. I believe it was Tony and his show that gave me my creative hunger, and the ability to see things in an artistic light.. not only what their initial purpose was.
Even today, I use his tricks... like using Blue Tack (or plasticine in those days) under paper when making a hole with a punch or pin, to stop the paper from tearing. I now do this regularly to punch holes in my business cards to display and package my earring designs.

Nadal's Annoying Habit

Went to the tennis on Thursday.. Awesome day out... except a little tiny thing bugged me.....

Every point was the same... every serve the same routine... get 3 balls from the ballboys.. hits one back.... puts one in his pocket, bounces the ball on the ground with his racket... picks his undies out of his ass... serves..

Nads, honey... if you are gonna get sponsorship from Nike, don't worry about the amount of $$$ they offer you... make sure they give you comfy undies... a wedgie is very unattractive when you pick it out... especially when you do it EVERY SINGLE TIME in front of a few thousand people in the arena.. and a few million! on TV.

Go see Pat Rafter... he swears by his comfy undies :)

From the Universe

What you want has no bearing on whether or not you'll get it.
None. Nada. Zippo.
It's only ever a question of whether or not you can behave as if you already have it.
I got you, babe -

Room 101

People who don't check spelling of other people's names!
Their names and details have been deleted to protect the stupid and/or incompetent...

My e-mail:

"Contact person for accounts is xxxxxxxxxxxx, telephone #########.

Thanks and regards

National Fleet Controller"

Their response:


Thanks for the details.


xxxxxxxx (I'm a tool who is too lazy to read properly and not professional enough to check a simple matter of spelling someone's name correctly)

Manic Monday

Manic Monday #151
What do you do to make yourself feel better when you are sick?
I watch Judge Judy or Dr Phil, or even better if I can find an episode of Jerry Springer. Makes me feel a whole lot better that I am not a guest on one of those shows ;)

What is the most amazing weather you've ever seen?
I remember being in a gale so fierce that for every step forward was a real fight not to to be blown back again. I was walking home from the dentist when I was about 16. I was almost crying with frustration by the time I got home. I also love Aussie weather... especially warm rain.. love walking in the rain on a warm day, or sitting out in a singlet watching the lightning.

Do you listen to music or talk radio in the car?
I am currently in between stations... switching from Nova 100 to Vega 91.5. I like Vega better but after a while feel out of touch with new music so switch so start feeling young again. I love Dicko Dave & Chrissie on Vega's brekkie radio.

From the Universe

It's the exact same for me. My love goes unreturned, I feel completely unappreciated, or some clown starts telling me what's wrong with the world (my world!).

And so, I have to remind myself that I am the Universe, that this is an adventure, and that one day they will come to know the errors in their thinking.

And, not that it matters at all, but I secretly hope that on that day I just happen to be carried past them, sitting in my processional throne, followed by throngs of admirers, with all the Angels singing, "We are the champions, my friends..."
You are the Universe, this is an adventure, and they will learn.

Room 101

Trucker Caps.

The foam front that makes your forehead looks twice as tall as it really is.. and worse... the cheap mesh net at the back to supposedly let ventilation in.

Please face it... they look shit.. if you wanna wear a cap, wear a baseball cap. At least they conform to the shape of your head and don't look like you made it at home from your gramma's curtains.

From the Universe

It's easy. Your thoughts become things. Don't fight it. Don't think there's anything else. Don't entertain the false premises of fate, luck, or a God who judges, withholds, or decides.

You decide. You manifest. You rule. This is why you are here. This is what you came to discover. You were born to experience your absolute dominion over every flimsy, malleable illusion of time and space; to have, do, and be anything.

Truthfully, it couldn't be any easier. All you have to do is think of what you want and refuse to deviate from that thought. This will, invariably, set you into motion, stir up the magic, and unleash the full force, power, and majesty of a Universe conspiring on your behalf.

It's worth everything you've got. Be strong, be vigilant, take action, and the Kingdom of Heaven shall appear at your very feet.

I've got your back,

The Universe

The Movie of Your Life in 2008
1. What would be the title? Try Harder
2. What would be the tag line? You Need more than just Lemons to make Lemonade
3. Who would be the main characters? Who would you cast to play them? I would Like to be played by Kim Raver, or maybe Alyson Hannigan . Mom played by Judi Dench. My now ex T/L by John Travolta or Jeremy Piven.
4. What would be the climax in the story? The realisation that you can put your heart and soul into a relationship, but if the other person doesn't do the same, then it cannot be saved.
5. What song would play for the closing credits? You can't always get what you want, by the Rolling Stones, followed by Opportunity, by Pete Murray or Around the Bend by the Asteroids Galaxy Tour (gimme good good times around the bend!)
