re: the hot weather - the very informative quote:
 
Elizabeth Tennant, 55, a receptionist at Charlwood's Stanhill Court Hotel, said: "It's very hot, we are all melting."
 
Thank you Elizabeth for that.

Now, I don't know if it's the quality of the Metro reporters or poor Elizabeth's overheated brain to blame for filling up the newspaper with such quality information, but surely if a newspaper reporter came up to you and said "what have you got to say about the weather" I would hope that anyone reading this would reply with something along the lines of "Well, achieving room temperature fusion isn't a big deal right now".

Karin sent me a stuff news article about the Haka with handbags. Pretty amusing, a link to the video is on the page just after the article itself.

I know a bunch of people have gotten their knickers in a twist about the Australians making the video, but I reckon it's damn funny and fairly well done.

What's not so cool is Jerry Collins going for a leak on the field in front of 35,000 people!

Petra sent in this lovely story about her poetry class:

The Australian Poetry Competition had come down to two finalists, a university graduate and an older aboriginal man. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to study the word and come up with a poem that contained the given word.

The word given was TIMBUKTU.

First to recite his poem was the university graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:

"Slowly across the desert sand,
Trekked a lonely caravan.
Men on camels two by two,
Destination...Timbuktu."

The crowd went crazy! Surely the Aboriginal gent could never top that.

Slowly he made his way to the microphone & recited:

"Me and Tim a huntin' we went,
Met three whores in a pop-up tent.
They was three and we was two,
So I bucked one and Timbuktu."

The Aboriginal man won.
