fast cars

I was walking along this morning on my way to work and this fancy Mercedes zoomed by me with a young flashy looking Asian guy behind the wheel wearing what is no doubt designer sunglasses.
So he swung his head round 'Zoolander' style and gave me what appeared to be the 'blue steel' look. Revving his engine he then sped off into the horizon (actually he had to screech to a halt as he came to a red traffic light) but i suddenly wondered...
do guys like these buy these sort of cars and think that they will definitely 'bag some chicks'? i mean when you give them the look i did, which was a sort of 'uh yes, very nice' do you think they go 'vat woman, can't you see this hot car that i spent £30K on - isn't it utterly fabulous? don't you just want to do me'?

i don't know... any men out there who can answer the question - it would be much appreciated.

blazing london!

it is unbelievably hot here in London - 37 degrees! but i am trying hard to maintain my cool tropical island girl exterior, that is - i can handle it.
But what i almost couldn't handle was the fantastic, mind boggling and calf-muscle shattering Red Hot Chili Peppers concert that Lee and I went to, with two other mates. It was awesome and moreover so uplifting, Kiedis was electric, and nothing like watching two great guitarists such as Flea and John F having an impromptu jam session right there on stage making our little ears bleed.

Unfortunately I am not built with legs the length of Mariah Carey (or the model who did her cover shoot) so it was a strain on the lankan legs standing on tip toe all evening but Lee sweetly put me on his shoulders which made my night.

Lee and I at the Lankan wedding

after I just caught the bouquet! We sold it to a runaway bride right afterwards for a whiskey and some rubber slippers.

First time being bridesmaid

my buddy Lara's wedding, and it was all downhill from here!

my land or yours?

I couldn't believe the news on Radio 4 this morning when they announced that Israel had attacked Lebanon (Beirut city) over the Hezbollah capture of two of their soldiers, last night. Israel attacked another country! Yes, its fair that Israel be extremely concerned about this act, however - being backed, funded and armed by the West who are strong founders of Democracy, where is its' lover Diplomacy?
So comparatively, where's the outrage? If the Palestinians attacked this would be a different picture - where's the anger and shock from the west? It is so minimal, it's almost as if they just merely walked onto someone else's property and asked for a cup of sugar.

I think this double standard malarky is going to push the world into witnessing a 21st century Middle Eastern War and those of you reading this might think this is just NOT YOUR problem. But believe me, it is, and we can't just stand back and do nothing.

You ask, what? Maybe one place to start is caring about it and learning more about the war and its participants.
