Fictional? I don't know about that! Yee-haw!!


Funny, they don't seem fictional to me either..  ;)
Still, fictional or otherwise, they rock on!


Speaking of rocking on, some weeks ago, I attended a 'Guitar Woman' concert organized by Sue Foley.  I was blown away by the performances of the five talented ladies in the show.  What an inspiration.  I hope someday I can play guitar half as good as she does..dang.

Sue Foley..

Don't quite know where else to post this, so here goes. As a follow-up to my recent post here about Gro Hammerseng: The women's handball World Cup has run its course and today the final is played: Norway vs. Russia. Of course we are terribly excited that the team has come this far, and the games they've played have been great to watch. Both Gro Hammerseng and Katja Nyberg have been outstanding and they are both in the team that play the finals today.

(In the semi-final Norway beat Germany, but only barely ... sorry Chrissi and Anke!)

Anyway, if you wanna send a Good Luck wish to these strong, gorgeous women in a couple of hours, that would be great:  :)

Thanks Meryl!

Unfortunately... we lost. I mean, they lost.   :-\

And poor Gro H. was hit in the face so hard she had to spend most of second half out of the match, trying to have a profuse nosebleed staunched and iced - it wouldn't let up. She was still bleeding a lot, her nose visibly bigger, when accepting her silver medal along with the rest of the team. I hope she hasn't broken her nose!  :o

But she's still totally gorgeous.

And there's always the Olympics for the team to try to reach the very top!  :)

ETA: According to the news, she *did* break her nose! Argh! I hope they'll manage to set it properly so she won't end up resembling OS Ennis in more ways than one!

OK, you all, I PROMISE this will be my last post on this topic, but I thought this was so nice:


After the World Cup Final the International Handball Federation handed out prizes to the Championship's best players (irrespective of countries and teams).

Gro Hammerseng made the all-star top Championship team, Katja Nyberg was named "the most valuable player of the Championship" and here they are in their prize jackets, - Gro with her broken nose. Aren't they a great couple?  :)

Indeed.  Who has the broken nose though?  They all look pretty well & jolly to me.  :)

I know she has been mentioned already, But I'm mentioning her again anyway...Cate Blanchett



Also, Sigourney Weaver:



Ok, I don't know if anyone has added her yet. But in my opinion one woman who should be mentioned is Maxine McKew.



Also, Julia Gillard - she is our first female Vice Prime Minister:



And Jessie Street:



Pearl Gibbs:



and Faith Bandler



these three were the main influences in getting the 1967 referendum happening that stopped Aborigines from being segregated from Caucasian society and enabled them to be counted in the census.



Then there is my sister Helen who I live with:



She has been the only person I knew I could trust when I needed to confide in someone. She is by best friend, my older sister, someone I look up to, and someone I can go to for advice, and someone I worship in the only way a little sister can. She is just gorgeous.

Also, my Great Grandmother Olive Lenore Vance (I share the same middle name and I was born exactly 100 years and one day after her):



She was a teacher at Hornsby Girls High. And she was a greatly loved teacher.

And Jodie Foster:



Sincerely, Kat.

I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing.

If all is not lost, then where is it?

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.
