And read on to hear about my decadent, albeit poorly photographed, treat.

A friend recently told me I'm a Grandpa Simpson Conversationalist.  I start talking about one thing and end up in a very different place.  I take that as a compliment and, so, today's post is a celebration of utter random-ness.

I love Fridays.  The only thing I love more than Fridays is having afternoon tea at Koko Black on a Friday.  The photo above the jump is of the walnut chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream.  It's approximately 50,000 calories and worth every single moment of exercise I have to do afterwards to work it off.  Oh, who am I kidding.  I don't exercise.

Some of you may have heard that Australia has a new Prime Minister.  Cos that's how we roll.  We don't like the old one, we get the (metaphorical) knives out and get ourselves a new one.  I'm not going to get into a political discussion (a lack of knowledge never stops me from having an opinion, but politics is a no-go) about the rights and wrongs of it all.  But I will say that the English press are, really, very polite when they say our new Prime Minister has a 'strong Australian accent'.  Hah!  Homegirl's vowels are flatter than the Dutch countryside.

You've Got Face is nearly ready for launch!  A few more tweaks and adjustments and we will be live on 1 July 2010.  I've been doing research on other beauty blogs and have come to the conclusion that a Velociraptor has a better chance of successfully applying makeup than I do, and they're freaking extinct.  So, on the count of 3, lower your expectations.

Finally, I went swimming earlier in the week (so I do exercise sometimes).  As I'm making my way down the pool, I'm thinking 'Wow, I'm not a bad swimmer'.  Until a dude lapped me who ONLY HAD ONE LEG.  One leg.  And he was, by my estimate, around 70 years old.  So I got beaten down at the pool by someone double my age but with only one leg.  I suck.

Ok, Grandpa Simpson / Jacie wishes you all a great week.  And make sure you tune in on 1 July 2010 for the launch of You've Got Face!
