melbourne taxi drivers and other stuff

i heard on the radio this morning that a young woman had thought she was being abducted by a taxi driver as he drove her around for two hours, not following her directions.

it turned out, he couldn't understand what she was saying.

i read in the paper that a model has been arrested in indonesia with two pills wrapped in a twist of paper. she said she didn't know what they were. that someone just gave them to her.
and she kept them? and she was going to maybe take them?

i shake my head and i boil the kettle.

and when is winter going to be OVER.

ps confession - i bought andrew morton's princess diana book on special at target. i think she and jemima are sisters. or were. what do you say?

anyone got any gossip? i'm bored.

The model will go to jail for 10 years. Then Harry M Miller will get her a movie deal about her life "Two Pills".

Well, they certainly had a Pakastani connection.

LadyCracker said...

They may have been sisters - the upperclass English like to have secret siblings don't they?

I have no gossip about anyone but myself so I'm going to make some up NW style.

Steve Coogan and Courtney Love have had an affair and Courtney is now expecting a child.

Oh wait that is true (shudders)

gosh! I was attacked by burglers last night in my bed. Lucky I'd taken those ninja lessons because I fought them off by breaking their fingers and poking their eyes out.

Oh, and in other news. Sandra Sully and Jessica Rowe are having a secret affair.

(is this scurrilous enough for you)

Your srevice to my blog is much appreciated. (I did know there was no such word as remunerance.)

Drew Banfield is number 6 for West Coast.

problematic said...

let's just say that the srevice gag was deliberate.

How about this:

It's gunna be 19 degress on Saturday and 23 degrees on Sunday!!! Winter has pissed off for a weekend!

M!key, that's just a vicious rumour being spread by the man.
I've just been told that I have the tenants from hell living in my bush home. I need a hitman! Capey, you know one?

MelbourneGirl said...

lady, who is steve coogan, and is it true? i haven't read that one yet.also, i did read that diana's mother and jemima's father had a fling.

elaine, don't ye keep a cutlass under the bed, ar?

is that true about sandra and jessica? hard to know what's real and what's made up purely for my entertainment

m!key, i heard about that. it's WONDERFUL. if it turns out to be true, i will wear my new thongs (see lockets post about shoes to get backstory)

thanks cotton - always happy to srevice someone in need of grammar etc aid. and it was a funny gag, man

clokey. what's going on in your bush hut? capey knows people...

Clokeeeey! said...

Steve Coogan = Alan Partridge AHA.(see ladycrackers daddy story)

Can't talk about the tennants. I'll elaborate later.

Justine said...

LOL! That sort of happened to me once. "No no, the other left..."

Who is Steve Coogan?

BEVIS said...

Steve Coogan - he's hilarious!

He also starred with Jackie Chan in last year's Disney version of Around The World In 80 Days, although I suspect that it's not necessarily an example of his best work.

I haven't seen it, myself, though (so maybe it's brilliant), but his role wasn't meant to be second-fiddle to his assistant. Chan has the bigger profile, though.

Anyway, Knowing Me, Knowing You With Alan Partridge was great. I own the box-set and it's so dreadfully awful, it's actually fantastic!

the whole alan partridge thing must have happened during one of my overseas stints

the only partridges i know are the ones with spunky keith and susan, with the bus.

oh oh, i feel a nostalgia trip coming on

Clokeeeey! said...

C'mon get happy.

Come on, surely if Jemima and Diana were related they would have been forced to marry somehow. That's how royalty works, you know.
