Why do a TV review when you can indulge in a mindless Canberra bash?

By johnboy 13 July 2009 67

The Age is running a strange review for the “homeMADE” renovation show, written by Catherine Deveney.

The strange thing is that Catherine can’t be arsed writing about the show but rather takes out her dislike of getting up in the morning on our fair city.

    Canberra’s a giant office. No one lives here. People just work here. It’s so squeaky clean and Truman Show-esque I spent the day fighting the urge to make with a spray can and defile the place with dick and balls. People in Canberra don’t have a sense of humour. Well, the ones I caught the taxi from the airport with didn’t. A cabbie pulled up to the rank and said, “Parliament House.” I was one of three randoms to jump in. The driver said, “Does everyone know what multi-faring is?” The other two grunted. I said, “Is it like group sex with cab vouchers?” No one laughed.

    After checking out the “night life” and deciding there’d obviously been a biological attack and I was the only survivor, I returned to my hotel room and flicked on the tube. Nothing to watch. Apart from commercials for Magnet Mart and an ad for a store called Bing Lee to the tune of I Like Chinese.

Somehow I think the problem lies more with Catherine than with Canberra.

I just can’t believe that the QANTAS Club has again run out of spicy fruit loaf.

Yes, their standards are certainly slipping. Last week I had to have ordinary camembert as I slowly consumed my complimentary 4th (or was it the 5th?) scotc. The heathen bast’ards had let the supply of the blue-vein I normally partake of run out. Can you believe that!

I’ll be writing to their manager forthwith! Oh the humanity…

oh, and this Catherine sounds like a complete tool.

Watching her on ABC’s Q and A last night, I feel even more convinced the problem lies with Catherine.

Catherine Deveney is a sad, sad, bitter woman.

Catherine Deveny – who?

Making cracks about Bindi Erwin appears to have gotten her sacked.

I must say that I am really surprised about how upset some people get when our fair town cops a bit of a bagging. If we really don’t care what she thinks, why get all worked up about it?

For people from the larger cities, Canberra CAN seem a bit boring. It’s also calmer and quieter, which is why I choose to live here.
