The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is in town, where I've ...
  • had MANY chuckles watching Television's Lawrence Leung talk about fan fiction, Colin Firth and being a slender, effeminate Asian man (in joke, go see the show)
  • had fewer chuckles, but still a good time, watching Sophie Miller

  1. The Melbourne International Comedy Festival. That rings a bell. Pardon the generic, probably overused reference, but did the Axis of Awesome perform in it a few years ago? 'Course I wasn't there (sigh) but, thats what the internet is for, am I right?
    Wow, okay this was longer than I meant it to be. Just came across your blog and good thing I did. It's wonderful, I really like it.

    If you have a minute, would you please check out my blog? I know, I know, sorry to spam, but I do put a lot of effort and would love if you could even just leave your opinion. Thanks so much
