What a day!  
1. Hermione the PM made Dobby the house-elf  a. a Senator and b. Foreign Minister! This is why I have delayed updating, the story is still unfolding!

2. I had a FABULOUS day with spirillen at the AGNSW and Picasso exhibition. She is terrific! So was the exhibition!

3. The mystery of the phones in the post is solved! There was a return address, so I did a search for the name and suburb and found a possible candidate, emailed him and had a reply. A friend of mine from NZ is sending her teenager here over Easter, and he wanted to get the phones back to my Kiwi friend, so they are using teenager post. The poor lad was assuming that my friend had filled me in, while she was waiting to hear back from him before she let me know about the plan.

4. My foot is killing me and I need to make 48-60 tarts before I go to bed. Might finish watching this week's Phryne Fisher first ...

They really messed with the plot of Murder on the Ballarat Train, didn't they. It's probably okay as a piece of TV, but as an account of the novel, it's totally screwed. I'd rather have seen something much closer to the original. They also softened all the horror elements, and and and...

Yes! In my opinion, this Phryne has FAR TOO LITTLE sex with hot young men. It's still pretty, and good fun, but I do prefer the stories of the books.

And did you see that competition? Tea at the Windsor!

They certainly could have taken things further with that devilish Lionel Lindsay look-alike; talk about a faun! (Even though nothing like the character in the book.) I don't see Phyrne refusing to be "lustfully compromised" either. "Compromised" just wouldn't come into it. They seemed to be hinting at Jack instead.

And, Yes! I don't care about the makeover (far too late, heh), but classic Melbourne would be fun. But I probably wouldn't be here: leaving for London 19 March, away two months. Still, I can look into it...
