Her style is strong, graceful, confident and always as though no-one is watching. Like I said, the chick rips!
I feel lucky that I get to surf with her so much - I always learn a LOT! Thanks Izzy xx

Isn't it brilliant!! I find it immensely encouraging as I can think of nothing more wonderful than being called a "Venus on the loose".

16 short films, live music, and (if you're anything like me) the potential for pre-drinks while staring into the river. Lovely!
Maybe I'll see you there*!
*I'll be the one standing awkwardly on her own, grasping a large glass of red wine and staring into the river...

Oh yeah, the guy who said this stuff is currently running to become Australia's new leader. To become our Prime Minister. To represent us on a world stage. All of us. We vote in about 10 days. I won't be voting for Tony Abbott, or the Liberal Party.
The thing is that in Australia, we don't actually vote for our leader - not like Americans vote for their President. We vote for regional representatives and whichever party gets the most representatives (or holds the balance of power in conjunction with another party) gets to choose the leader.
Despite this, political campaigns in Australia are still run based on leaders. Parties seem to think that focusing on personalities (or lack of them) saves them from having to develop or discuss actual policies. But it leaves them open to heavy and specific attacks on their party leaders, which can damage their party's chance of winning anyway.
Anyway, this election campaign is making me depressed.
