3:07PM Jess McGuire | I didn’t watch much of Junior MasterChef because I don’t particularly enjoy being made to feel stupid by talented children (it’s the same reason I’ve banned myself from It’s Academic) but apparently a whole heap of you did.

9:10AM Jess McGuire | My darling best friend Will keeps digging up amazing old Kylie interviews on YouTube, so I thought I would share one with you that I enjoyed very much, mostly due to Kylie’s adorably bogan voice. As Will pointed out, “Her voice was pure Kath Day-Night back then!”. More »
