Not a humping marsupial in sight.

On Saturday we decided to take the train to Melbourne to see the Myer window Christmas display which ended up not being Christmassy at all. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see a peep shows like last year’s window and I was really hoping for some of that funny, but it was still an impressive display.

Myer Christmas Window 2007
Too much glare plus too much humidity equals no desire to try to get any great pictures.

We thought it would be “fun” to take two small kids on a train for two hours -each way- and boy, was it ever. Ok, they weren’t too bad, but I think next time we head to the city we’ll take the car so that I don’t have to pick something up/ have someone climbing on me/ stop someone from crying and freaking out – I’m looking at you, Andy/ take someone on a hazardous bathroom trip every five seconds. Although I think the “next time we head to the city” we won’t because big city people suck…um, no offence to anyone from a big city who reads this because I mean other city people, not you. Obviously. I don’t have any fascinating stories about these people or anything, just in general they were pushy and rude, well except for the lovely bearded lady at the tram stop (no, really she was very nice and E chatted with her for ages) and I’m sure the kids in McDonald’s are pretty fond of the homeless gent who bought them their alcohol for the night…

When we arrived in Melbourne it took me about three minutes after stepping off the train to realize that I was in the same city as Justin Timberlake. I immediately told Andy that we had to scrap all plans and head to the Rod Laver Arena just incase I could catch a glimpse of him or maybe there was even a sound check happening at that very moment. The possibilities! He would not comply and I know my way around Melbourne as well as I know my way around, like, I don’t know – a big city I have spent little to no time in so we headed to Myer. I didn’t really mind because I figured my chances were pretty good of just seeing him somewhere in town eating lunch or buying shoes. I mean the city only has close to four million people so the odds were in my favour. Also I figured if we could find out what hotel he was staying in then we could just hang out around there, that was how I got to see Howie from the Backstreet Boys after all… What? In the end we didn’t get to see him, but there was a stretch hummer that drove past us and I like to imagine he was in there, singing Summer Love and looking at me as he drove past and then later at his concert pictured me while he sang it again in front of all the lucky bitc…people at the concert. Oh, hi. Yes, I am crazy. Why do you ask?

If you’re wondering when I was getting to the point of this post I’ll let you know now that there is not one. We went to Melbourne and my feet still hurt from walking around all day in shoes that were not meant for that much walking. Mostly though I just wanted to talk more about Justin.
