Spring 2005: What's Hot and What's Not

What's Hot


  • Cocktail parties with ample supplies of lemon, lime, vodka, peach schnapps, soda water, midori, fun people who just wanna dance and drink and make conversation that isn't about work, blue cheese, quince paste, pink lights, potato salad, choolate dipped strawberries, pistachio nuts, comfy couches and decent music!
  • Saying "fuckin' wanker" in an Irish accent
  • BioZet washing powder. It smells so fresh.
  • Bhutan, Croatian Coastline, Tasmanian beaches
  • September (the Swedish pop singer, not the month)
  • tATu - again
  • Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets - great atmosphere, good looking people, good looking fruit and veg, good prices, all in Australia's porn capital! It can't GET better!
  • Green grass and grass clippings

What's Not

  • Spiders that bite you in the middle of the night on not just one but two toes and make them hurt and itch all day. Canberra spiders. The face of evil in an arachnid.
  • Knightsbridge, Braddon - great furnishings etc, and free wine tasting once a month - great idea but pity the wine is pretty crap and the people serving it scowl at you when you actually want to taste some but not buy any due to the fact it's crap
  • Non-stop rain
  • Closed car parks that mean you have to walk a kilometre to get to work if you don't want to pay $7 for parking
  • Australian Idol - who the hell came up with the idea that they are the best contestants ever? What a load of crap. I feel nothing for them. Vacuous is the word!
  • Coles Supermarkets - no thank you Lisa McCune.

'A 24-hour brain dump'
In this story today, P-I reporter John Cook previews Seattle Mind Camp , the brainchild of Andru Edwards .
Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and club music lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about club music lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite club music lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!

Ooh, so good to see this little section make a reappearance - and for September to get a mention! I dont' think BioZet is that good, though. It just does not dissolve all that well! IT DOESN'T.
