We dressed Superniece up in clothes I'd bought her. The tutu was part of her birthday present. My sister was horrified when I put the tutu on her, but Superniece had a ball, crawling around, showing off her fashion skillz.

My sister's dear dog, Finn. He is a 10 year old Deerhound. I took him & Morris, their chocolate Lab, for a walk. Finn gets tired quickly these days.

Finishing point of our roadtrip: my sister's house on South Australia's Limestone Coast. The light here is beautiful & made even lovelier with the appearance of a rainbow.

Sleeping 20 hours a day must really take it out of you, if Kermit is anything to go by. He was pleased when I arranged a cushion for him to relax on.

14th May, 2009

I watched an Australian doco on ABC tonight. Called The Wedding Makers, it followed two couples who had enrolled the help of wedding planners.

This guy reminded me of Sir Perdis.

2009 is the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz & to celebrate, twenty designers took up the challenge to create their interpretation of Dorothy's shoes.

Myer Bourke Street is currently hosting the "Ruby Red Slippers Collection". As I'm still on the hunt for a pair of sparkly red glitter flats (no thanks to you, this was HEAVEN.

I fell in love with Betsey Johnson's design (above), although Jimmy Choo's was a close second.

The exhibition is on until 24 May.

Unimpressed Kermit is unimpressed.

Callan Mulvey is at my work today, filming for Network Ten's police drama, Rush.

Unfortunately I was indisposed at the time he was running towards the building (& me) so this is the best I could do.

The workday passes quicker if you have some mischief to create. 'Angus' wrote a stationery order up on the whiteboard, so it was decided we should erase the 'g'.

Goosey goosey gander,
Whither shall I wander?
Upstairs and downstairs
And in my lady's chamber.

There I met an old man
Who wouldn't say his prayers,
So I took him by his left leg
And threw him down the stairs.

Wikipedia have a whole entry dedicated to this rhyme.

Scooby dooby doo where are you?
We've got some work to do now
Scooby dooby doo we need some help from you now
Come on Scooby doo I see you
Pretending you've got a shiver
You're not foolin' me 'cause I can see
The way you shake and shiver
You know we got a mystery to solve
So Scooby doo get ready for your act
Don't hold back 'cause Scooby doo
When you come through you're gonna have yourself
a Scooby snack that's a fact
Scooby dooby doo here are you
You're ready and you're willin' [Scooby]
If we can count on you [beee]Scooby doo
I know we'll catch the villain

Nina & Pete had their engagement party at a Greek Tavern. Each table had a bottle of white & red wine, a VB longneck (spew) & a bottle of Johnnie Walker. Between four of us, we drank two bottles. Some coped better than others.
