I was faced with a choice, at a difficult age. Would I write a book, or should I take to the stage

Sunday, May 8



We are frankly beside ourslves over this, like you simply wouldn't believe! We even did a frantic little dance when we heard the opening strains of the brilliant Big Brother theme for the first time this year. AND TWINS! It's GENIUS! We are thrilled to have been invited to blog most of our Big Brother material this year over at Ausculture with some of our very favourite bloggers including Crystal and Ms Fits so we will save ourselves for that a bit, but can we just say now:


* Gretel's AMAZING hair! She looks like a gracefully ageing Greek pop diva
* Gretel muttering, rather tersely, "Mind the hair, mind the hair," when a housemate hugged her a bit too effusively
* Gianna
* Constance
* Dean
* Dean's astonishing arse
* Gretel's deadpanning. Eg, "Well. Isn't that HILARIOUS."


* Once again, Where Are The Gays. You cannot seriously be running it like this AGAIN, with no gays! Half-bisexual slappers do NOT count.
* Why must the lefty be ugly? WHY? How on earth is he meant to compete for SMS votes with that proudly Howard-voting shithead?
* All the terrible "so farken Aussie it hurts mate" boys they've picked

We really need to calm down a little bit.

At karaoke I was the only person who stood up for Gretel with you, and I was howled down for my beliefs. HOWLED!

I liked Gretel BEFORE she was Gretel because she wrote children's books full of the kind of zany toilet humour and smirky sass that kids actually enjoy, instead of filling chapters and chapters with depressing 'issues stories' that are mant to be all 'relevant and challenging' but which kids generally find utterly torpid. Children always liked to read her stuff, but now that she's 'cool' it's even easier to get them reading it, and for that I am eternally grateful.

Books aside, I also think she rocks on BB (aside from the Merlin incident for which she still deserves a spanking).

Gretel Killeen, helping Jelly save the kiddies of the world, one piece of young adult fiction at a time.

I really do think she handled the Merlin incident in such a way as to afford both parties a modicum of dignity. She did let the booing audience know that she considered Merlin's point to be a valid one. And he totally stitched her right up on live national TV. What else was she to do? It was fair of her to elicit a personal apology from him. I don't think it tempered the impact of his message.

OH, blah blah, it's just not an argument worth having, Fop. I'll bang on all night and it will be boring. Let's just agree to disaggree on this point and talk some more about her hair.

Note exciting new spelling of 'agree'.

Yay! I've found another Constance lover! I loved it when she said "people who are positive all the time really annoy me. Negative people are interesting."

And Gianna = Francesca (from My Restaurant Rules) mated with Dannii Minogue!
