spice up your life

Well you can't say you didn't hear it here first.
Well ok maybe you can, but as I predicted {lol}, THE SPICE GIRLS ARE REUNITING!!!!
And I for one, will be attending the Sydney leg of their tour when they come here.

***i do reiterate however that I extremely surprised Posh Spice has agreed to the reunion, not quite like Robbie Williams and Take That (cold day in hell), but she's massive now. My personal theory is that she actually DOES think she can sing, and this is her outlet for that.
I speculate that she will do the tour, and then LEAVE the group, prompting the creation of "Cumin : The Search for the New Spice" the reality TV show where the contestants must create elaborate hairstyles and thigh high boots using nothing but their wits.
You heard it here first-I'm calling it***

Eddie Murphy father of Scary child

Eddie Murphy has apparently been DNA tested for the paternity of Scary Spice's baby daughter, and confirmed that yes, he went there.

In other Spicy news, the 90'd girl group has sparked speculation they will be reforming by calling a press conference next week.

Somehow though I can't imagine "Lady Posh"taking such a backward step as would necessitate her rejoining the group. She has a sweet life now, and everyone knows she was the one who couldn't sing! Although she has apparently recorded a new single.
Listen to a sneak preview HERE. Eek.

Looking at this though, is the world really ready for Spice Girls again?

I wanna really really really wanna zig a zig ahhhh....

Are you kidding me????

Some of you professionals out there will have, like me, a work email address that is your name with your company name as the domain for the email, for example miss.piggy@blondepigsdoitbetter.com.au can you believe in my new job, I getting SPAMMED by our customers to my address? I'm assuming some of them are simply guessing my email, but others, people I've actually given my email address to, send me junk!
And by Junk, I mean those crappy forwards that promise you an iPod if you send this email on, or I got one for a free laptop computer if you sent it on to 30 of your nearest and dearest friends {read: VICTIMS}
I'm gobsmacked seriously, how unprofessional!!
Then I got another one that was flogging something like Trendwest. Goddammit!

Tanning beds are the root of all evil.

I've said it before, I'm saying it again, and this time with backup.

....Cancer Council Victoria's SunSmart program manager, Kylie Strong, said the ultra-violet light projected by solariums was up to five times as dangerous as Victoria's midday summer sun.....
VICTORIA'S booming tanning industry could be subject to government control for the first time as concerns grow over the risks of frequent solarium use.....

.....The current (voluntary) code advises that children under 15 and those with fair skin should be prohibited from using sunbeds, and that parental permission for those under 18 should be obtained. It also recommends users sign a consent form outlining the risks.

The director of the Victorian Melanoma Service at The Alfred hospital, Associate Professor John Kelly, said he was seeing a number of skin cancers for which the argument was persuasive that they were caused by solariums. "It's probably a phenomenon of the last three or four years; before that I had never seen it," he said.

Associate Professor Kelly said he had seen three cases recently that he believed had been caused by solarium light. One involved a 20-year-old woman who had a melanoma in her groin, the other two women had breast melanomas.

"All of the women were partners of solarium owners … they used (a solarium) a hell of a lot and all of them in short order, within a couple of years of doing it, had got melanomas in previous never sun-exposed areas."......

.....research by the World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer which has shown that people who regularly use sunbeds before the age of 35 increase their risk of melanoma by as much as 75 per cent......

......The manager of Planet Sun Tanning Studio, who asked to be identified only as Tammy, agrees that some legislation is needed as long as it is "not over the top". She also believes solarium staff need to be properly trained.

"We have our own policy here but a lot of our customers come in and tell us how they've been thrown into hot beds when they have milky white skin and … it hasn't been done properly."

Tammy said tanning at a solarium was safe if it was done responsibly.

"It's really a controlled environment. We recommend using sunscreen and if there are suspicious spots we recommend they see a doctor before coming in and tanning."

SunLounge Port Melbourne's manager, Alfie Pezzi, said turning people off UV exposure was wrong.

He said there were medical benefits of vitamin D absorption through UV exposure.

Of course there are, but not THAT much Vitamin D. Clutching at straws methinks......

*tear* Long live Cassius

As some of you may be aware (not all as I was very slack in reporting this momentus occassion in our life), we became proud parents two weeks ago. We went to the store and instantly became the proud owners of two siamese fighting fish. They look a little like these.

El Salvador
(mine is a little bit greener)

Cassius (mark's)

At least, that's what Cassius looked like. *sniffle* he's dead already. :( And I feel like a terrible parent because I couldn't even care for a fish. I maintain however that he commit suicide as he wasn't eating his food, he simply let it float until it became swollen and sank to the rocks.
*sigh* I'm still sad though. :(

The Poo (NO not THAT Poo!!)

Now stop me if you've heard of this already, oh wait, you can't. Read on then!!

"Our own" Poo (Mark Phillippoussis for those of you playing at home) has somehow gotten himself caught up in a terrible The-Bachelor-Type of reality dating show in the US. You know the ones, hot eligible bachelor lives with 14 nymphs in a luxurious mansion and the female endeavour to win him over whilst scratching the eyes out of every other female contestant. Bachelor picks one, they give it a go for a few weeks before "discovering" that meeting in a fabulous mansion is not a healthy basis for the beginning of a relationship.
I mean how did we go from this

To this?

He looks like a doofus here and what is happening with his right eye? "Eh-baby-wanna-ride-in-my-WRX-ayyyyy????? He looks slightly better in what appears to be the actual promo shot at the show's homepage on NBC.

Somehow he has ended up looking a bit glassy-eyed-insurance-salesman here though...

The actual "twist" of this show is that there's 20-something nymphs and 40-something nymphs looking for a slice of the action, and trying to answer the question "Does Age Matter". I think the real question should be, "Is this what sporting stars are relegated to when they can no longer play their sport?"

Oh Dear...

I'm sorry I've been so lax!!!!
I blame it entirely on falling ill. I got sick a few weeks ago and it knocked me for six a bit. Couldn't muster much enthusiasm for anything really.
So I'm so sorry its taken me so long to post, and I apologise again for not having anything completely riveting to say!

-soon to follow though
- billylou is published! With her permission i will post her wonderful poem that she performed at the Riverside Theatre at Parramatta. :)
- a pic of my cool pink hair
- a pic of Ryder's christening.
Sorry again :)

Digital Fortress - Dan Brown ***/*

When the National Security Agency's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls in its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant, beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage-not by guns or bombs, but by a code so complex that if released would cripple US intelligence.

Caught in an acccelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Flethcher battles to save the agency she beleives in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not onlt for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves...

Hmm...As with all blurbs it seems, not quite how it all comes about, but I guess its close enough. Good read, not as good as the others, but better than Angels and Demons.
