Think...


Gosh - what a long day. It all started with a Pink Breakfast artisan. The yummy cupcake pictured on my windowsill is courtesy of Cake That and there was a fashion show featuring millinery from Alexandra Harper and fashion from various young designers featured at The Tribune in Arthur Street. It was well organised and lots of fun. The staff of Artisan were the good natured models and there was lots of positive energy. We had bookclub tonight but saved discussion of the book until next month when Eva can make it. Gina and I went to the Blue Room afterwards to see Burn After Reading. It was delicious being in that cinema. I love the first five minutes of just about any movie - I can feel the weight of the world drop off my shoulders as I immerse myself in a new world. It is a movie to think about...and I agree with the caller to Australia Talks this afternoon who thinks its quite a dark movie for all its humour. I'm intrigued by the title. Burn has changed its meaning hasn't it? We burn discs now don't we? We burn fat. Well some of us do. I don't. Not much anyway. So, it's a movie about appearances. How appearances can be deceptive. How we are so obsessed with surface appearances...how harshly we judge people on their appearances...including ourselves...we all laughed with recognition as Linda trawls through RSVP.com candidates and intones with Chad "Loser, Loser, Loser". Poor Ted is obviously pining for Linda but she's so wrapped up in herself and her goals she can't see it. Oh it's a silly silly world all right. When will we ever learn....

Hey there, think I will make the cactus delight but change it into a pineapple. I do like the one you made and will work my way up to the coral fantasy. Where do you get interesting wool in Brisbane?

I have quite a thing for cupcakes and can't wait to see Burn after Reading. I love the Coen Brothers, Fargo is my favourite movie.
