Welcome to my blog where fear and phobias rule the day. My own phobias include, clowns, balloons popping, planes, planes crashing, planes filled with clowns crashing, planes filled with clowns holding balloons crashing....you get the general idea. Oh and although I love animals I hate them dressed up in clothes.

If you were a dog, who, out of all the people you know would you choose to be your owner?
It’s a tough one – because if you are practical about it, it’s not necessarily going to be the people you love the most or even love hanging about with. Being a dog means being helpless and reliant on someone else entirely.
I decided that I would probably choose my Mum, just by looking at the kind of lifestyle her cat leads I would be extremely spoilt, overfed, badly behaved but still loved and indulged to distraction. (oh dear I think I’ve just described my own childhood.)
When I asked Emma she said she would choose me! She said that I would be a good owner because I would probably let her eat too much, let her sleep on the bed, lie on the table and have the run of the house but I would still be relatively responsible. I’m rather flattered.

13 things I hate about you
It was back in 2001 when the indomitable Louise Post of Veruca Salt was touring Australia and playing a gig in Melbourne when she was informed that her then boyfriend Dave Grohl had been caught out kissing rock and roll groupie and part time shoplifter Winona Ryder. In order to cope with this devestaing news Post drank a bottle of vodka, performed the gig of her life and then collapsed in a fluffy heap on stage.
Having slinked back home, licked her wounds she has now come back to play with the new Veruca Salt album “Resolver” which is a blow by blow disection of her relationship and a not particularly veiled stab at Mr “nicest guy in rock and roll” Grohl and his very bad behaviour. I can’t help giggling at what lovely revenge this is and picture poor Dave Grohl wincing and squirming as Ms Post publicly lists her litany of wrongdoing at his hands. Ouch! But then again I can't have that much sympathy, I personally think anyone who is dumb enough to think pashing Winona Ryder is a good idea deserves getting paid out.
However for the casual observer the CD makes for great listening, specially if you are into angry young women rocking out PJ / Courtney Love style.Therefore Resolver makes it onto Kate’s CD recommendation of the week.

Can't believe it. There I was, waiting for my train at circular quay station when right in front of my eyes appeared a black stretch limo and out hopped Lucy Liu, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz! They are all rather gorgeous but I think Cameron Diaz was the most divine. She is all leggy and gangly and a bit unco which makes her even more appealing.
Two new fabulous websites to share today:
Check out Wing! A fabulous Chinese/NZ popstar in the making. I highly recommend hopping in and having a listen to Wing sings the Carpenters.
Also this is a delight and of course one of my favourites - cat wearing little outfits from Japan.
Cats in hats
Have a good looooong weekend. I know I will.

God Dammit! today back at the House attending a press conference will be the lovely ladies of Charlies Angels - Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore. These chicks are my favourites, in fact they are my pretend girlfriends, specially Lucy Liu. Dammit, Dammit, dammit. Instead us lot over here are destined to press our noses against the glass and peer across the harbour at the ant sized people on the point.
I learned a new word today: feirabend - it's german for the uniquely festive mood that overtakes people at the end of the day. Those germans, they have a word for everything.
