The Aussies Tell You Where to Go, Mate!! And When!!

I wish I had a good reason for slacking off around here, but I honestly don't. I can't even blame Maureen Dowd's Are Men Necessary? for tearing me away from my duties at the Jet Set Chick.

Let me save you some time....in case you didn't already know, the book sucks. I still have no idea how I managed to get through the first chapter, but was fascinated to hear that the only reason the Tsar was interested in marrying me was because I am his "inferior".

And all this time I thought it was because he liked my accent when I speak Russian, and I didn't drag him to a co-ed baby shower on our second date. (Yes, we were invited to go. Since I actually was looking forward to this date and wanted to see the Tsar again, I suggested we skip and go to a movie instead. He was so relieved, he even went voluntarily to a sort of chick flick.)

No wonder this was still hanging out in the local library branch's "Stellar Sellers" section, gathering dust. My bad for ignoring the sign right there.

Don't ask me about anything other than the first chapter and part of the second. I still think she should have called it something like....well...."Meow Mix" would have worked nicely. It's catty and skips all over the place.

Oh, yeah, this is supposed to be, more or less, a travel related site. So here goes....don't take that book on your next flight.

You're welcome. Remember, I'm here to help.

And the best way I know how to help, if one of your resolutions includes traveling more, is to give you ideas of where to go. A nice list of some of the more suprising times to visit countries around the world has been helpfully provided by the Sydney Morning Herald.

My only quibble? Their suggestion that Finland is a good place to visit any time of the year. Trust me on this, dahlinks.....Sweden. Go for Sweden, especially Stockholm.

    I think they are. Some of my best friends are men! ;)

    Maybe even Maureen does, too. If she could just stick to a theme for more than one paragraph, maybe I could tell for sure.
