OMG OMG OMG I'm here!!!!

How excited am I about being in Sydney? So excited I chopped off my head.


And didn't realize my son had messed with the filter settings on my camera.


I was met at the airport by the lovely Forks in the Road. I felt like I was meeting an old friend. We chatted about life as we drove through the city. She delivered me to Chez Woog where I finally got to meet her royal Woogness face to face.






Excitement plus! We hugged, we squeeed. we waved our arms around, we hugged again. I showed her my sparkly bra.






She took me out for dim sum and a tour of her neighborhood. We drank really good coffee from the little hole-in-the-wall place where Mr. Woog buys her coffee and delivers it to her in bed in the mornings (how do you get a gig like that, tell me?). We came back to her house and these gorgeous flowers arrived for me from my sponsor, Glaxo Smith Kline.



Wowness!

I think I've died and gone to heaven.

How did all this happen to little old me?  Honestly, how?

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings (and tomorrow and tomorrow...).

xoxo
