And he had two daddies....

Right then, I'm outa here. Before I go, I hope you all have fabulous Christmases and New Years. And thank you all for reading and a bit thank you to my lovely commenters.

Now, a community service message from the girl whose been spending lots of time with the police. Two things.

1.Wear your seatbelt.
2.Don't speed.

I know it sounds naggy and boring, but I'm regularly seeing the results of what happens when people are seatbelt free and speed friendly. When it comes down to it, speeding cars are metal missiles and us old humans are merely flotsam and jetsam.

*Gets off soapbox*

I shall leave you with a New Zealand take on the Christmas story.

Merry Christmas !

Just currently we've got snowstorms raging through Europe, parts of Australia being bitch slaped by floods (ya what?) and New Zealand being bathed in glorious summer. (Not to mention general global warming, but since that's the loudest pupil in the class, it can just sit in the corner quietly for a moment).

Anyway, all of this aside, the prize for 'Best Attitude Towards Weather Being Hurled At You' goes to these boys from New South Wales in Australia. A clip sent to me by one of my 'Stralian cousins.

Eat your heart out, Pamela.

The other day we were filming and it was about 27 degrees. We were all banging on about the heat, how hot it was and how we were struggling in it.

I got back to work and sitting waiting for me in my inbox was a photo from a colleague just titled, 'Having a bad day?' And it was accompanied by this message 'Things could be worse, we could all be filming in Scotland....a scene from a friend's day a work yesterday.....'
In a nano second my heat-while-working whinging paled to complete insignificance.

Sound Advice

I've heard this advice and I can one hundred percent vouch for its authenticity.

'Kids, don't drink and, don't drive when there's a warrant out for your arrest.'

That's my community service message for the day.

You're welcome.

Ridiculous question for the day.

'Kate, have you seen Jackass in 3D?'

Holy Shitbags Batman...

...were you aware that people can be this stupid?
I have no idea who Priscilla Caputis is, apart from the fact that she loves putting poison into her lips. Either that, or she's really allergic to something she's just wrapped her laughing gear around.

I shouldn't be hanging around Awful Plastic Surgery cause, photo by photo, it makes me despair over how we're evolving... but it's like a car crash.

Lord Sleep. Don't mess with him.

In the very early hours of this morning I got a call from one of my team from work. It was concerning work and she was working (and before you ask, no, I'm not running a team of hookers). She needed an answer which was the difference between another four hours on the job or not.

But I digress.

The first thing she said was, 'I'm really sorry for waking you up'. And it got me thinking. (There was quite a bit of thinking that went on in the two hours that it took me to get back to sleep).

My question is, how come sleep has so much respect? ( I may have answered this question in the previous sentence, but I'm ignoring myself).

But think about it, you never want to ring someone too late at night - in case they are sleeping. If someone has gone off for an afternoon kindy, you tip toe around the house, to make sure you don't wake them up. As a species we don't really like to wake up anything that's sleeping - except cats, cause that's entertainment.

Is it as basic as the time it can take to get to sleep, or is there some other reason that I'm spectacularly missing ?

Or, is it just time to put sleep in it's place?

Walmart Fashion.

People of Walmart continues to entertain me, no end.

It's possibly because that's all my brain is capable of conjuring up for a post just currently. (Copy and paste is the fast food of blogging).

You know how reality television was born out of a writers' strike? People of Walmart and Awkward Family Photo are brought to you by me currently working a seven day week and feeling a little bit tuckered out at the end of the day.

Anyhou, it's self inflicted so I shall put the violin away. Instead! Behold these beauties.

Oh yeah. Giddy up. And below I think is her spiritual sister.
However I shall save the best till the last.

The Australian Office saw it and thought of me, bless her. And it was inspiration for this entire post.
I am without words. But I'm think I'm right when I say she's only wearing a pair of shorts.

She's only wearing a pair of shorts.

Which is okay if you're a hot bloke, or a wee ankle biter.

Otherwise it's wrong in so many ways.
