Fruit allergies becomming more common

But most reactions are due to the spread of pollens that react with certain fruits and vegetables. So he can eat all the rockmelon he wants to, as long as he lives in a bubble?

Satan likes Anzac biscuits

Because I think it’s good manners to show your appreciation with baked goods, I took a batch of Anzac Biscuits to the Opera House yesterday. After the show, we caught up with Kate to chat about it, and I mentioned how much I loved the dancing of the woman wearing the “I Love NY” t-shirt, the enthusiasm of the conductor, and the powerful and oily charm of Satan. Today I got an email from Kate saying that she had given each of these people a biscuit (and her fellow follow spot operator), and that they were a hit with Satan. It’s not every day you get an endorsement from basement cat.

Jerry Springer

The marvellous Kate rang tonight and offered us tickets to see ” Jerry Springer the Opera “. Of course, we didn’t have any plans for tomorrow that couldn’t be broken, and we decided to fob off the kid on my parents (who are going to Parkes for 6 weeks on Wednesday, so clearly they need more time with the kid!). Sally reviewed it last week, and I thought “sounds great, what a pity we can’t afford to go”. Now I just have to decide what to wear. What could possibly be appropriate?

Morning Sickness linked to smarter babies

I feel so much better now!

I feel so much better now!

Of course, I am a little pissed off that the eminent doctor says that women should feel empowered to seek medication to help “if they have a job, like a doctor” and they have to work.

Personally, I think ALL women should feel empowered to seek help, regardless of employment status.

But I’m not a doctor πŸ˜‰

Fake Pelicans

A million years ago, when I was working on Babe: Pig in the City , I walked into the huge studio at Fox for my first night on the job, and saw a giant animatronic pelican. The special effects unit was working nights, because the main unit was, and George Miller wanted everyone working on the same shifts. A microwave link was set up between main unit, second unit, and I think also the edit suite. If main unit was on night shoots, so were the rest of us. Anyone who has worked nights will tell you that the first night shift is a strange thing. You tried to stay up late the night before, you tried to sleep in and do nothing all day so that you could make it through the night, and you turn up for work and can’t stop yawning. Add to that the nervousness of working on such a huge scale, with a new crew that you don’t know, and it’s nerve-wracking. So under the circumstances, the pelican was a bit of a shock. It was big, it was feathered, it had a huge leathery bill, and bright yellow rimmed eyes. It was the fakest fake thing I had ever seen. It was surrounded by a team of puppeteers, tweaking each little movement, trying to make the flying motion look like a real pelican. Good luck, I thought, and wandered off to find the camera truck. Some months later, on another job, I was at Sea World on the Gold Coast, where they have a pelican rehabilitation facility. I was lucky enough to stand about three feet away from a real, live, actual pelican. Amazing, I thought. It looks just like an animatronic pelican. Inigo sees a pelican for the first time Waves! Much less scary than they were last time we were at the beach on his birthday Everything is less scary when daddy is around Buried in sand Fun, despite the taste The end
