Why are you so defensive about your eviction? You should wear it as a badge of honour!

You can strut around telling people 'I am way more important than Kate Ceberano - at least I got inside QF F before being booted - she couldn't get past the front door'! :D

I also got told off for "inappropriate" footwear when leaving the Melbourne QP...nevermind that they let me in wearing them in the first place.

Crikey - when I first saw this video all I could think of was the day blackcat20 and JessicaTam were evicted from QF F Lounge in MEL!

Whilst we never saw first hand their reactions I am tippin' it was pretty close to this!

They should have reacted the same way as you need to do with toddlers. Ignore her and walk away. She was totally working herself up for the camera.

Indeed - and she was awarded compensation because it was captured on camera.

Of course, had she really been ignored, it is quite viable that she might have started hitting people.

A pretty old video.

New sports goggles for skating & hopefully (eventually) ice hockey.

Received a DVD (Bluey, it was the source material for the comedy Bargearse). Looks like an asbestos envelope. Stuff went everywhere when I opened the envelope.

Looks like the shredded cardboard-like stuff that Aust Post pads their padded post bags with.

Good grief, what a tosser.

I saw that article too, and imagined the same thing, some tosser hanging around an airport trying to look all executive like, without actually going anywhere or with any purpose.

Kinda reminded me of that CNN business travel reporter Richard Questhttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Quest . Not quite sure what is the reason for his travel, other than to report about travelling and getting caught in compromising positions.

So I went to a wine tasting last night and won the door prize (I never win anything) - 6 pack of wine in that winemaker's new packaging.

It's not Tattslotto, but hey, I'll take it :)

You have an interesting imagination for someone you haven't met. If you have any questions on this article I didn't write - ask away. Cheers

It's an interesting advertising piece masking as an article - a waste of pixels really.

The only thing in that list of items I would be interested in is the travel adaptor for $28 from Bunnings - but since I can get them on eBay for a less than $10 with a few weeks wait then unlikely.

As an aside - IME, any N/C headphones over $100 are a waste of money these days.

Then again, since I am not into paying extra for "Brand" names, the article was not written for me ... I am wondering who it was written for.
