True Blood

Wow! Just when I didn't think it was possible to find a show better than Gossip Girl or Dexter, True Blood came along! Following on from the Twilight craze, HBO have released True Blood - so raunchy it makes Twilight look like child's play!

The men boast ripped muscles and killer smiles, the ladies have lovely long, toned legs, awesome hair and perfect, perky boobs. The characters swear like truckers, have crazy quirks and generally make you think they'd make the most fantastic friends to invite to a Sunday barbeque.

It has everything a tv show needs: telepathic waitresses, serial killers, 2000-year-old undead vampires, cross-dressing short order cooks, all-star football players, a boot scootin' sherrif, shape shifters, Jesus-loving vampire-haters, a loving grit-cookin' grandma and some of the most hilarious lines I've ever heard.

Oh, and the theme song just oozes southern charm and makes you think of the naughtiest things you've ever gotten up to.....

If ya'll haven't been watchin'....then I suggest you get onto it pronto! Jena and I are ADDICTED and can't stop yapping with each other in crazy accents. Yes, the accent has even come out at work and was receieved with very strange looks. Minor detail.

Season 3 has already started filming, so now is the perfect time to start watching - if you're not already!!

Home for the Holidays!!

Hi all, I've been pretty quiet since my anit-Miley outburst and that's mainly due to being at home in Brisbane for the holidays.

Once in 4 years we're contractually guaranteed (loose terms) leave over Xmas or the New Year period. I've just had my 4 year Dubai anniversary and have never asked for this leave before and thought I'd give it a go - surprise, surprise, to my delight I was given a whole 10 days off over Xmas and have been spending it with family and friends.

I'm enjoying the rainy weather, summer fruit offerings in the supermarket and the oodles and oodles of Christmas food - salads, ham, ham, ham, salads, cold meat, ham, ham and more ham!!

I'm headed back to Dubai tonight on the midnight flight and will be straight into a very busy month.

I hope you all had a wonderful, safe and magial Christmas and continue with festive spirit into the New Year.

Lots of love! xoxo

Twilight is a Cult....

So just when I didn't think it was possible, in my opinion Miley Cyrus has just superseded Megan Fox as the most stupid woman on Earth this week by saying she thinks Twilight is a cult and blah blah blahing in the way only she can do....without having read the books or even seen the movies.

Here's her latest soundbite: "I think it's bad," she says in an interview with Us Weekly. "People get too into it…When guys look at supermodels and they're like 'that's the perfect girl' that's what those kind of movies do to us. You know what I'm saying? They're like thinking that's what girls should be like and not everyone is going to be Edward [Robert Pattinson], hate to say it."

So Twilight is a cult because supermodels have perfect bodies? Or because supermodels are fantasised over by men of all ages, all over the world? Or because the character of Edward Cullen doesn't exist in real life...? Because if he was real he SURELY wouldn't look at supermodels? Okkkk.....

HATE TO SAY IT Miley, but if you bothered to flick through a few pages or watch a scene or two, you'd be happy to see that none of the girls are dressed provocatively, sexualised or portrayed as ''perfect''. Hell, even the lead actress isn't a curvy blonde bombshell - she looks like a regular girl next door. That's the whole point of the series you idiot.

Let's examine Miley's skank-tastic wardrobe (or lack thereof!) for clues as to why men grow up with certain ideas about women who dress a certain way, shall we? Can you think of any reason men might think you're advocating underage sex Miley?? Perhaps leaked myspace photos, racy outfits, trashy underwear shots that we REALLY don't need to see? Remember people: she's 17 - hardly appropriate behaviour for a child star.

Her 9 year old sister in her dominatrix Halloween outfit - how do you spell tragic?! I know Halloween is all about having fun, but geeeez, surely g-rated standards still exist? My father wouldn't have let me out of my bedroom, let alone the house dressed like this as a kid. Hell, he wouldn't let me out dressed like this now, at 27!!

All I can say is: we don't see Dakota Fanning carrying on like this do we? She sends thank you notes to people she's been in movies with. Bless!

Honest to God, why can't children just be children instead of getting famous for having no talent and showing the world far too much of their young bodies?

Miley Cyrus = YAWN.
Don't even get me started on that Megan Fox.
