DrummerBoy is house sitting which is code for free food and lodging but today he popped in because the Fringelet was 'preparing' for the big night out and he was bored! Bless his cotton sox he came to talk to his mum. He's got a job. A good job. His prospective boss flew him to Melbourne on Friday for the Garden Show and he's pumped. Videos and stills of $7000 barbecues and 'outdoor rooms' were watched and he's very excited about his real start on Monday. Well another reason for visiting mum, the girls are doing girls' stuff and obviously have to start straightening and glossing at 2.00pm for an 8:30 start. The boys are settling in for a big poker night.
So why is my eyebrow twitching. The twitch has transferred from my feet. Actually, it's my feet itching. I've been watching Getaway. A holiday program that makes me realise what I really want to spend my life doing . . travelling. Already the Merry Widow is up for a Canadian trip and we're in the early planning stages for maybe June 2009. But I also want to go to Kawai in Hawaii, I want to spend Christmas in Greenland, I want to hear mass in Rome,I want to watch THE horse race in Sienna, I want to spend days at the Hermitage in St Petersburg and also want to walk into Chanel on the Champs Delyse and be thrown out of Chanel because they don't do clothes in sizes larger than 5! Or even closer to home see the blue pools at Mt Gambier and perhaps kayak in Katherine Gorge. So much to do, so little money, so little time . . .
The reporters on this show (and another favourite 'The Pilot Guides')have to experience the best job in the world. So, until the readies pour in, I'm stuck watching Sydney Weekend and Getaway and wondering if I shouldn't crash the poker game and chance a win . . .beginners luck?
Thank you Stephen Rodriguez
Just get me outta here! Bob might have coined it but Jimmy owned it.
Gotta go, Michael Palin is doing Europe! Metaphorically speaking!
