Question marks aside, I was having my moment on the information superhighway today. It all started when I was having a leisurely cup of coffee and reading Sydney's tabloid daily newspaper.

Hello fun filled summer. I loved Vanilla Diet Coke back in the day when a 600ml bottle at lunch time or at 0200 on night shift ensured that I'd be on my feet and nearly bright eyed for the end of the shift. Vanilla Coke Zero in 2011? I'm there. I'll just brush my teeth after each bottle now.

Then there was the announcement that the Kindle Fire is to be released on the US market in November. There is something ... intense about the CEOs of category killer computing devices, isn't there? Each word is precise and each look at the cameras penetrating.
It sounds fabulous and at a very nice price point. If and when it finally reaches Australia, I would definitely upgrade my current Kindle to the Fire. My novels in colour, the US magazines I could subscribe to, the TV programmes I could download. Please hurry Amazon and make an Australian release as soon as possible. Even with the dollar going south, we're still very interested!

It was the release day for the food edition of The (Sydney) Magazine today. In my excitement, I forgot to bring my copy home to photograph for this post so we will have to make do with this image from the cover. It was a great read, to be honest. A fascinating look at the numbers and deals behind the more prominent chefs in Sydney. There is certainly a great deal of celebrity involved but this drives the reality that though food is a passion for chefs, money still has to be made to survive and that big dreams need big financial backers who look for monetary returns as well as the realization of culinary visions.

I feel that I've grown up against a back drop of Demi Moore's life. First there was St Elmo's Fire when I was fourteen. Then Ghost and that song from the soundtrack that I played to death and have now forgotten the title of. Was it Unchained Melody? Demi had her children and posed for the cover of Vanity Fair with one of her bumps body painted. This paved the way for many skeletal looking pretenders. She hid away for a bit but re-emerged for Charlie's Angels and as one of Rachel Zoe's major clients. That's at least 20 years of my life right there.
I think I need a bit of a lie down after recounting all that news. I need to rest up for my favourite day of the working week.
Take care everyone and see you soon! Are you excited for the weekend already?
