I'll be honest. It took me about 5 hours to think of 10 good things that happened in the past week. What a sad life I lead when I have to refer to sushi and coke in my Top 10 things. So, from now on, it will be........Top Three Tuesday! Or Top Two Tuesday, depending on how many times I made a fool out of myself in that week.
Anyway, getting to the point.
3. News articles such as *this*. To summarise this absolute hilarity, Don Burke (television gardening specialist/general twat) has had a go at Donna Hay (pretentious chef) for publishing recipes using parsnip as an ingredient. The two parties argued over A VEGETABLE in a public battle via radio/print. I am loving this for a few reasons.
a. Clearly you have a problem if you're whinging about a recipe with parsnip. 1, Because who the hell argues about a vegetable and 2, because no one's died yet so it can't be that bad.
b. The fact that so many people commented the article arguing for and against the usage of parsnip in culinary creations. WHAT THE HELL?! Why are we discussing the positives and negatives of a vegetable?! I find it quite amusing that people have enough time on their hands to argue their point and defend the vegetable.
c. A quote from Don Burke: "I'm outraged, I'm angry, I'm upset, I'm crushed. I'm all of those things and a lot more." - Can I just remind you once again, that this is a vegetable we're talking about. The way he's carrying on is as if someone ran over him with a truck and then took away his contract with Channel 9.
d. The wannabe journalist in me comes out here.. Why on earth is this classed as 'news'? Lets just ignore the fact that we're in a global financial crisis, convicted drug smugglers are having their sentences cut, the war on terror is still raging but lets report on VEGETABLES!
2. Watching Rove on Sunday night. I'm not usually a big Rove fan but as I mentioned before on here, the spectacular Judith Lucy is now a regular cast member on the program so I am now a regular Rove viewer. Everyone should watch, okay? They also had Carl Barron on as a guest.. I don't think I've laughed so much in months. It was awesome.
1. The White Album Concert. Basically 4 musicians (Chris Cheney from The Living End, Josh Pyke, Tim Rogers from You Am I and Phil Jamieson from Grinspoon) have come together with a 14 piece band and performed all the tracks from The Beatles White Album. I was in attendance at this show on Friday night and it was the most amazing thing in the world. The songs were perfectly done. It was especially great because they didn't interpret them in their own way and didn't act as if they were a 'tribute band'. I probably enjoyed it so much as it's the closest thing I'll ever get to seeing The Beatles.
So lovelies, what wonderful things have you experienced in this past week that's made you giggle?
