Olympics

Well I've been in awe of all the great athletes at these games...Usain Bolt, what a star & showman...Michael Phelps, Stephanie Rice, what great Individual achievements and all the Aussies, not only the swim team, Steve Hooker our pole vaulter & everyone who was lucky enough & good enough to get a medal or get into a final...Well done to all of you...you are a credit to our great country...but one special man touched me last night...

Congratulations GOLD Medal winner Matthew Mitcham...Highest score ever in the 10m Diving...blew everyone out of the water, not only the Chinese who have dominated this event...He is so much like Ian Thorpe its uncanny...his looks, voice & mannerisms are all like Thorpie!!!..This from Yahoo7 Beijing site...

"He will be forever remembered as the Aussie who gatecrashed China's party.Mitcham's victory was so monumental that he became Australia's only athlete to join superstars Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt to grace the front page of the China Daily newspaper.With a full page photo and appropriately headlined "Matt Finish", Mitcham took the gloss off China's diving domination with an incredibly polished performance."

What I liked most...he's our very own Aussie, out & proud gay boy...not only did his emotions overflow but after he got his medal he climbed the stands to kiss him Mum first, then his partner Lachlan...they were both interviewed later as well...not a word was said about his sexual orientation...How wonderfully refreshing is that!!!...Well done Matthew...

Congratulations to all our Aussies...but tonight I can't wait to see Becks (David Beckham) in the closing ceremony...He is one of my faves and thank god its all over...I've been the biggest Olympic couch potato for 2 weeks...Back to the real world tomorrow...

Cheers and Aussie, Aussie, Aussie...Oi.Oi.Oi...

How hot is hot???

I thought I would make one of my very rare entries on my LJ...So I have been reading a lot of comments from my flist about the snow and cold and generally shit weather in the States...So I guess this is when you are going to wish you were living down under...

It's now been over 7 days of over 30 degC temperatures in Melbourne...11 days of 30deg in Adelaide,South Aust...a record for South Aust.

Today we hit 39 deg in Melb, and tomorrow is forecast 40 deg, Total Fire Bans all over the State....this hot weather is going to continue until after Easter...

It's supposed to be Autumn,lovely sunny mild days, cool nights great for sleeping... not full on Summer all over again!!!...the trees know its Autumn, they are all losing their foliage...but WTF is happening to the Planet???..


The bad news....no rain in February...no rain in March so far...water reserves at 35%...permanent water restrictions...and no end in sight to this never ending drought now going on 4-5yrs...

So the next person that tells me that Global Warming is all in my head...I will personally punch their lights out!!!...That's all...


Ciao for now...have to get back to the Air Conditioner...

Ok...this is so me... its scary how accurate it is...hmmmmm!!!


you are deeppink
#FF1493

Your dominant hues are red and magenta. You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just can't leave behind. You can influence others on days when you're patient, but most times you just want to go out, have fun, and do your own thing.

Your saturation level is high - you get into life and have a strong personality. Everyone you meet will either love you or hate you - either way, your goal is to get them to change the world with you. You are very hard working and don't have much patience for people without your initiative.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

I have only posted 2 entries in my new LJ, but I try to comment on quite a few friended authors stories and LJ's...I also like to read other peoples comments and reactions on the fics ...

But as I am not an author I really have nothing much personal to say that would interest anybody on my LJ, and I hardly have the time anymore...

I hope you all continue to create wonderful storylines for our boys, May your muses never leave..so the main purpose of this journal is so I can read the fantastic QAF fiction out in the wide wide web...and make some new friends as well...

Thanks to the talented writers who have friended me...

Cheers Ondina
