Paragliding Chihuahua Survives Crash

A 42 year old man, with his pet chihuahua strapped to his chest, got stuck in a tree while paragliding in Don Valley. He called the police on his mobile, but it took them five hours to find him. I love the mental image I have of the man in the tree with his Chihuahua (who was almost certainly shivering) strapped to his chest for five hours. I especially love that it was about 15 minutes from my house.


UPDATE: I just saw the story on the news - I know this chihuahua!!! Her name is Emma and when I was in the Warburton Community Choir, Emma and her dad used to come and watch rehearsal because her mum was in the choir! How funny! She walks around Warby in little camo jackets and she is always with her dad. Go Emma!!!

Post Oscar Roundup

Well my religious event has been and gone for another year. I can't say that last night's ceremony was the best I have ever seen, but it wasn't the worst either. The highlights for me were:

* Jon Stewart. Love him, love him, love him. He can do no wrong. I especially loved when he got one half of the duo who won best song out to say her speech because she got cut off.
* Tilda Swinton's speech was lovely.
* When the author of "Juno" won for original screenplay. This was the only time I teared up a bit during the ceremony - great speech thanking her family for loving her the way she is.
* Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill. Seth Rogan is currently in my top three of sexiest Hollywood men (with Kevin Smith and Jack Black).
Sadly, that's about it. I am satiated though, and can relax until next year.
