I’ve spent the majority of the past week blowing my nose and coughing from whatever ridiculous cold is doing the rounds and watching the news go on and on about swine flu. Which simply reminds me of how cute baby pigs are….
Get thee to www.zooborns.com, probably the only website that makes me smile and coo every single time.
Oh my goodness, the crazy dress fest that is the Costume Institute Ball has come and gone again. Madonna’s LV outfit seemed to really scare a lot of the media outlets (although I was more concerned by the incredible amount of muscles and veins popping out her arms) but there were some amazing outfits. Obviously this means a big old picture post!

There was a great documentary on SBS the other night, And Brigitte Created Bardot. Honestly, I don’t remember anything unless I write it down so I forgot about it.
Luckily it’s online at http://www.sbs.com.au/, click on ‘Watch Full Episodes’ and it’s about three down. Hopefully you don’t have to be in Australia to watch it!
The footage of a younger BB is just lovely, there is a man who declares his intent to marry her & his parents fear that she would divorce him and take his money (despite having never met her!) and there is more backcombed hair than a beauty pageant. She has lived a turbulent life with multiple husbands, suicide attempts, a strained relationship with her only child and an intense focus on her sexualised image, she is such a fascinating woman and her dedication to animal welfare is incredible.
