My choice for best sculpture at this year's Sculpture Society exhibition at Mt Cootha Botanic gardens is "Homage to the Domestic Goddess" by Dala Shea and Robyn Bauer. The centre of the giant pink water lillies is made from washing up gloves, its gorgeous! Posted by Hello

the Gym, mad cats and Gwen Stefani

I'm going to try out the gym, anyone who knows me knows the gym is totally foreign to me. So far I've only been to an introductory session and already got panicked on the treadmill, I was afraid it would go too fast and I'd fall off it, until the instructor assured me that only happens on movies. We had a lot of much needed rain the last few days and our cats have been acting quite crazy and naughty being stuck indoors. 2 of the cats have played clawing our toes and fingers for kicks and jumping on our puzzle and nibbling on puzzle pieces. We keep the cats in at night but I don't know how we could keep the cats in by day as well because they would tear us and the house apart in protest.
Gwen Stefani has released a film clip for "Hollaback Girl", the word "shit" has been left out and it's funny because the word comes up in the song so much. I'm looking forward to gwen releasing a DVD for LAMB, her film clips are my Fave.

Going down to China town

Orasa visited Brisvegas Saturday with her big sister Tara, mum and beautiful niece Jessica. Orasa's friends Emily, Annabelle, Amber, Janna and her twins Pheobe and Alice joined us for Yum Cha at King of Kings restaurant. The food was terrific with Orasa in the hot seat ordering yummy food from the trolleys. Lucy's favourite was the mango jelly, and I loved the sweet tofu and the calamari. Lucy was dragon hunting and counted 38 dragons in Chinatown. We were amused by a shop selling a novelty toy that blew bubbles out its bottom and Lucy and I bought 2 new 1000 piece dragon puzzles. We'll be busy for a while.
My brother Bert has posted new photos from his Easter bike race. Bert from Sesame St and his dog get up to some whacky hijinx along the way. Well worth a look
