Your Lucky Underwear is Yellow

You're an extremely happy, laid back, fun soul. And your lucky yellow underwear can help you get even more out of life.
In life, you rather play than work. You're apt to quit any task that doesn't nourish your creativity and inner child.

Sometimes your drive for freedom hinders your quality of life. You find it impossible to do anything unpleasant.
If you want to have responsibilities and still have fun, put on your yellow underpants. They'll help you make a party out of the most mundane tasks.

Weekends are fun... Espicially 3 days weekends!!! [03 Apr 2006|10:55am]
[ mood | impressed ]

WEll ages ago I entered in a competition to win a $4000 glamour photo shoot.. I didn't win but I came runner up.. So I got a free shoot, and $200 towards some photos... It was a blast, and I got the results back last week...

Pics from my free glamour photo shootCollapse )

It was the best fun, but hard to sit there having people fuss over me.. and then having to smile.. I have a gap in my front teeth, so I hate smiling showing my teeth... the lady convinced me to smile 'teeth-ily' for her... LOL..
My Favourite is the Brown one, Danny loves the Frangipani one.. and Megan loves the black and white one..

weekends go by so quickly.... [27 Mar 2006|09:44am]
[ mood | working ]

First full weekend in the new place was good - apart from the slight breakdown in had on Sat night it was perfect!!

sat was spent doing washing and then heading to Danny's mum's place for a 'Body Shop' Party.. ended up putting in an order for $100 worth of nice smelly stuff!!!! :D

Sat Megan and I went straight to the club and met Danny and his mate there - they were watching Footy and playing pool.. then went home early.. had the fore mentioned breakdown.. got Danny pissed at me.. then spent half the night watching him sleep.. I hate getting him angry - it's the closest we have come to having an arguement.. it was kinda horrible..

Anyways.. Sunday went over to Dad's while Danny was at work, and watched the first round of the V8's with him.. he is lonley without me being there, coz he never see's Matt anymore.. so he was happy to see me.. have invited him over to our palce on Sunday so he can watch the Aussie F1 at our house!!

last night we went food shopping for the first time.. coz we now have a fridge, we can buy lots more stuff!!!
We are getting a bloody beautiful 106cm Plasma TV this afternoon and a Microwave, and on Wednesday our brand new dining/lounge package is getting delivered.... Can't wait!!! :D :D

Will post nice pics of our furnished house when we get the furniture!!! :D

Love Melissa

[ mood | busy ]

Your True Love Is a Cancer

Why you'll love a Cancer:

Cancer's loyal and sincere heart makes your own sensitive heart melt.
Caring and devoted, a Cancer will take the lead in pursuing you - and not give up!

Why a Cancer will love you:

You're laid back enough to deal with Cancer's little mood swings and freak-outs.
A fellow homebody, you know how make Cancer comfortable and at home with you.

So yeah.. well thats all from the land of Mel!!!

Save Monza! [22 Mar 2006|02:44pm]
[ mood | pissed off ]

Regular readers may br aware that in 1998 I began an online campaign to prevent the demolition of the famous banked sections at the legendary Autodromo Nazionale Di Monza.

It might seem odd that an Englishman to draw attention to a problem in Italy, but that was not the only thing I learned from F1 at that time.

Contemporary teams absolutely refused to get involved, with David Richards, then working at Benetton, telling me that “we,” referring to the Italian owned team, “Prefer to take the middle ground” when it comes to such issues.

This stance was echoed by virtually all the contemporary teams and drivers, who preferred not to get involved.

Thankfully this didn’t apply to former racing legends including John Surtees, Stirling Moss, Jody Scheckter, Jack Brabham and Phil Hill, While movie director John Frankenheimer, the man responsible for Ggrnad Prix, the motion picture which used the Monza banking to such dramatic effect, was also a supporter.

Urging the Italians to preserve the banking, to a long-time F1 devotee, was pretty much like asking them to preserve other national treasures, after all, isn’t Monza the modern equivalent of the Circus Maximus?

Now, Monza needs you help yet again.

In case you are not aware, the future of motor racing, and that includes the Monza Grand Prix, is under threat again, because of protests regarding noise emanating from the Italian track.

It is hard to believe but the future of this most emotive of tracks is under threat because of a legal action brought by two families who live outside the walls of the Parco Do Monza in the village of Bissano. Needless to say, these two families reside in houses constructed after the Autodromo was built.

The court has decreed that in future no races can take place at the Autodromo unless cars and bikes are fitted with silencers – which would be impossible as far as F1 is concerned.

The circuit has already been forced to cancel a number of events including the Intereurope and the 1000Km.

I have enjoyed a long love affair with the Autodromo, even to the point of getting married there.

Although the track lost some of it’s character, mainly due to the emasculation brought about in the name of safety, it remains one of the most charismatic venues on the F1 Calendar.

In the age of Tilke, the Autodromo Nazionale Di Monza, which has played host to all the legends of motorsport, represents the very soul of our sport, and to lose it would be an utter disgrace.

An on-line petition has been created, and I urge all of you to give your support.

This isn’t about race fans, it is about those that work in the sport, those that build the cars, those that drive the cars and run the teams..

This isn’t about politics, it is about standing up and being counted, for if F1 loses track of it’s past, it has no future.

Don’t sit on the fence, make your voice heard… and stuff the silencers!

The petition can be found at: http://www.petitiononline.com/m0nz4/petition.html
