    Desperate and Dateless? Come to a Civic Reception.

    Now that half the male population of Cyburbia is tuned in, it's time I 'fessed up about Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins.

    Jennifer's home town is right here - where I live and work. Today my employer is assisting in the perpetuation of the patriarchial, objectification of women in society by hosting a civic reception for Miss Hawkins. There willl be special security, it is invitation only and I'm sure the vegimite sandwiches and lamingtons will be laid on deluxe. So to Donk, Dan, Cardinal, Michaelskis, Budgie, Rumpy etc. I will try to get close enough to pose for a picture and resist the temptation to ask whether she would like to meet one of my internet friends in the US.

    By the way - JH had a problem during a fashion show yesterday - she stepped on her skirt while walking off stage and managed to rip the thing completely off. I've tried to google a picture of her butt in g'string bouncing off stage but its not on the net yet. It was all over the local TV this AM though.

    Why resist? Go with the feeling... *not sure if things with the GF are going to work out so well, so my eyes are open.

    As for the pic... Please find it.

    It went well, but the more I think about the relationship, the more I start to realize that her and I want to go into different directions in life...

    A guy from work is making sure that I have options...

    You have to wonder, when your job is to stand there and smile after obsessing over every part of your body for a few hours in a makeup room, that does to your head. Not very good things, I imagine.

    She's here now - I'm nicking off early for the weekend - can't work even if I wanted to as she's drawn a big crowd. The older folk from the Holmesville Progress Association (her home town) were here an hour before she was due. She is extremely down to earth and friendly (I guess you would have to be so if selected Miss Universe) and she is more attractive in real life than the pics do justice.

    The photo from last night's "wardrobe malfunction" is in today's Daily Telegraph but it isn't on their webiste yet - I suspect they are trying to syndicate it. Anyway - try this link at your pleasure and it might appear on the Telegraph web-site eventually. It was in the "Sydney Confidential" section of the printed paper. She made a joke of it this afternoon BTW and seems not to be too mortified by the event.

    Alright. fess up here. What is it about Australian, and Kiwi women too [b]JNL[/b}, that makes them seem so hot. I watched the very last part of the Miss Universe pageant and remember thinking that while the other women were beautiful (Miss. Venezuela, when are you going to return my calls?), Miss Australia had this natural, less-made-up look about her that made you take extra notice - kind of like Nicole Kidman with a tan. So what are y’all adding to the water down there in the Southern Hemisphere?

    I sense a Cyburbia Bachelor reality television type program in which Ms. Hawkins road trips and attends many LAEFESTS and ultimately widdle the Cyburbia bachelors down to 1 who gets the chance to have like a date and stuff with her. REM see if you can arrange this.

    Statler, you're my hero.
