"looking back, it's history, isn't it?"


Oh and another quote from the Radio National Breakfast Vox Pop regarding the ratf*cking of K. Rudd and the installment of a new PM

"Yeah, she's a woman like me, and quite like me a lot. Yeah I'll vote for her."

Such insight into the psyche of our nation's voters.

And then I heard "I've got the Biotherm on my face and I'm heading home..." Oh wait that was some portly fella in trenchcoat talking on his mobe in the lift at Myer. Windmills of my mind, NSRs, windmills of MY mind. Zero credit there!

Yesterday was the day for Fantapantsanians nationwide. (Actually, Potsie ( ;Hi Shane :) tells me that Donnie Most shed a tear and all...) Yes, I too was shocked when Kerry made such an uncouth observation as he blushed, laughed and "tetched up" during his first interview with the brand new Prime Minister.. . Or perhaps that is a quote from me when I was vox popped by the RN Breakfast team? How James Carlton and I laughed, well he fumbled and stumbled, eventually emitting a ridiculous mannered chortle. I told him to loosen the ridiculous cravate that he insists on sporting and well things started flowing....

More childish opinin' to come but  before I sign off can I  just, say, Kerry, that last night I went to bed feeling anxious (admittedly NOT a first but deuced rum nonetheless)  and this morning I awoke still feeling sorry for Kevin Michael Rudd!!

"Go figure" you'd cry if you were unaware that such an expression is so 2000.

Apparently it's Tim Finn's birthday today. Why do I know? Why do I care?  Blame it on Warwick Hadfield. And please don't get me started about Radio National Breakfast grrrr it's become so goddamn smug and cosy, it's practically 702.

Forget her letterhead debacle

Lordy Q and A certainly spiralled to a peculiar end last night.

Peter Singer philosophised on the ethics of an owner and her dog and cunnilingus, after which the majority of the panel members opted not to opine and looked as though they could not quite believe where the discussion was going (David Marr was twitching in his seat, head turned away from speaker, gaze upward )... When Senator Helen Coonan felt compelled to add to the discussion with a Kath Day-Knightian counter argument along the lines of  I've got two beautiful Golden Retrievers (of course you do, sweetheart) who i love very much but i would never ... Discussion over, the show concluded to the sound  of mirthful mocking shrieks from Nanny Marr.

"it is what it is"

"We do what we have to do." “I am what I am. " "You are what you are” (i.e. a totally self-absorbed and immature “ratf*ck", settle inner K priss, S E T T L E).

Matoority and originality drawers here is so tired of hearing people utter these moronically obvious statements with such solemnity, yeah if they were laughing and wagging cigars it would be tops. Great, pompous poops. Fortuntately these bores no longer seem to say 'QED' and I am not surprised by its decline in popularity for I, too, found Jenny Morris somewhat unappealing.

These platitidoodinal catch cries are very similar to the statements that peppered the parley of Days of Our Lives scripts in the 70's and 80's perhaps they still do but I stopped watching the show around September 1985-ish, as some very nice and million times more focused friends got me off my derriere and CHOOSING LIFE.

Don Craig, Salem's DA, love interest of Julie Horton-Banner-Williams (she looked like a poor man's Joan Collins (and that's high praise, ain't it NSRs) and Mary Anderson, was master utterer of such expressions. I have to admit that I did find Don the DA rather appealing, not just due to his sagacity, he seemed to model himself on James Caan as Sonny Corleone crossed with wisecracking Elliot Gould - an utterly devAstating combination.

As Salem's DA, Don was involved in many baffling cases such as the Salem Strangler, mayhem and murder caused by Dr Marlene Evans's evil twin sister (actually I think Don also had a thing for “Doc”) drownings or were they murders (hey, leave that for Don to determine) at Bob Anderson's boathouse, Mickey Horton's drink driving and manslaughter (very Teddy Kennedy) , and those hilarious madcap hi jinks with Eugene and Calliope. Needless to say Don had to do a lot of pondering and  resolutionising, consequently he  would often stroke his chin and muse "It's a wait and see situation", which I would have found utterly reassuring.

 In the 1990’s Don came back into my life, well the actor Jed Allen did,and yes, he came back into your life too, NSRs, BIG TIME, for he  he played Steve Sanders’s father in Beverly Hills 90210. It was a masterful portrayal.
