2009 - a year in review.

Barack Obama was inaugurated as the first African American President of the USA.

Michael Jackson died. Everyone cried like we lost the guy who found the cure for cancer, before he could tell us the cure.

Everyone went ballistic about Swine Flu and look- all/most of us are still alive.

The world found out nasty details about what goes on behind the scenes in Tiger Wood's life.

The Chaser showed how many easily offended people there are with the "Make a Realistic Wish Foundation" sketch. (Just for the record- I thought it was great.)

Seedy Kyle Sandilands caused controversy by quizzing a 14 year old girl about her sex life, making him universally hated.

Obviously there are many more important things that also happened in the last year of the noughties, but unfortunately my tiny brain can't think that far back. Please add your memories of 2009 and I'll add them to the list :)

Happy New Year :)

2009 in my life.

2009 has had ups and downs and tips and turns.

Because I'm bored/in a relationship with myself, I thought I'd share with you all the (un)interesting things that happened to me in the 09'.

I finished a short course in media, meeting some amazing people; friends that I'll still be laughing with when we're 75.

Auditioned to be a presenter on the new children's television network ABC3 and failed. I thought it'd be a good idea to make my audition 'different' and 'not what people would think to do'.....all the presenters chosen had really typical video auditions. Last time I try to be clever, ever again!

Began 'shut up, vita', consequently polluting more online space with my biased opinions, whinging about politics, laughter at innocent bystanders and most importantly, my mindless bullshit.

Gained entry into university next year, studying Communications/Broadcast Journalism.

Did an internship at a magazine for teenage girls. I won't name the publication but I will say that yes, they do recycle stories. Regularly.

Was part of a sketch filmed for one of my favourite television shows. Most likely in the top 5 fun days I have had this year.

I wrote a wanky, self indulgent blog post about myself.

hello dear lovely people.

first of all, i'll apologise for being such a slack blogger! not posting on here or commenting all your wonderful blogs for over a week.

everything has been so hectic recently. i'm currently moving house and it just so happens to be the Christmas season so obviously choosing this time of year to pack up our lives was the most logical choice we've made.

hopefully the tabloids will provide me with good blogging material in these coming weeks so I have more stuff to have a whinge about.

hope you all had a beautiful Christmas, or just a beautiful week if you don't celebrate Christmas :)

it is almost new years eve! what are you all doing for the occasion?

So this is Christmas
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas (War is Over, if you want it, war is over now)
For weak and for strong
The rich and the poor ones
The road is so long
So happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas (War is over, if you want it, war is over now) 
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
And we hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
War is over, if you want it
War is over now

Merry Christmas.

Hope you all have a beautiful Christmas.
I apologise for neglecting this blog so much lately- I'll be on with an update in a day or two.

Today, I saw this on a friend's Facebook status update and felt the need to share it with all of you:

95% of teens would cry if they saw the EDWARD CULLEN at the top of a skyscraper about to jump. Copy and paste this to your status if you are part of the 5% that would sit there with popcorn and a camera and yell "DO A FLIP!!!"

That statistic is more than likely untrue, but it's still amusing :) And yes, I reposted it.. would you?

Fleetwood Mac follow up

Seeing Fleetwood Mac on Tuesday night was amazing.
I can't even describe how good it was nor can I describe how much I love Stevie Nicks.

I did try and take photos but the lighting was horrible and they all came out super blurry.
But I found some elsewhere from that night so here they are:

and this one.. this was so sad.

I pretty much love Stevie Nicks ♥

What is the world coming to?!

Mia Freedman's blog MamaMia has alerted me to the fact that CHILDREN and BABIES are now being photoshopped.
Seriously, what is wrong with the human race when they believe that little kids need to be retouched?


I think the really horrid part of this story is that the girls' parents have obviously agreed to this, or even in some cases, requested these major changes. If so, what is life going to be like for these young girls when they get older? Kids, girls especially have enough problems accepting themselves without their parents having their photos altered. If they're going to do that, they might as well go and book the toddlers in for plastic surgery.

rock on, gold dust woman.

I'm going to see the legendary Fleetwood Mac in concert this Tuesday!
Even though all the band members will probably be using walking frames and taking nap breaks every 10 minutes, I am very excited. It should be a good show.

I am actually quite disappointed that Christine McVie will not be touring with the band as she left sometime during 1998. She was a pretty good vocalist. I like her. All other original band members (Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie) will be there thankfully.

I'll be sure to have some photos from the concert, but until then here are some photos from the vintage days of Fleetwood Mac.

Lovely readers! Do any of you like Fleetwood Mac? Or am I just totally living in the wrong decade?

ps, I wish I was Stevie Nicks ♥

I want these, what fun.

Today I came across some erm, unusual stuffed toys.
Lets just say you won't find these at Toys R Us.

I'd like to introduce you to...

The Kissing Disease



Wait for it.


Whoever has a sick enough mind to come up with this sort of thing- I want to shake their hand. Who comes up with a stuffed toy resembling a disease?!

These are so amazingly unique and kooky. I love them! I'm very much considering buying them. Although, that might make me look like more of an insane person so if anyone wants to buy them for me, that would be more socially acceptable and less weird.

Available from ModCloth

Have you entered the Christmas/End of year giveaway yet?! More prizes to be announced :)
