Weekend wind-up

1. V8 Supercars
I almost feel like leaving this one out - while I'm glad that Jamie Whincup and Team Vodafone didn't win the second race at the Townsville 400, I'm still peeved that it was another Ford that pipped him at the post. Congratulations to James Courtney for his first win but come on Holden, this just isn't right.... Bring on SuperGP on the Goldie, October 22-25!

2. Triple J's Hottest 100 Of All Time
It wasn't my number 1 but it's certainly the song of a generation. Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit got top spot on the Hottest 100 Of All Time yesterday afternoon with Rage Against the Machine's Killing in the Name popping in at number 2. If you were anywhere near my house around 5pm yesterday, you would have heard us singing our heads off to all the fantastic songs making up the top 20 with my favourite artist of all time Jeff Buckley scoring 4 songs in the list (Hallelujah at number 3, Last Goodbye at number 7, Lover You Should Have Come Over at 56 and Grace at 69). Well done to the Triple J team for making a Sunday afternoon a walk down memory lane - I normally don't enjoy doing the ironing but being able to listen to some of the worlds best songs made it a little more bearable.

3. Mark Webber's first F1 win A weekend full of sport and music - what more could you want? Along with the V8 Supercars in Townsville, Formula One headed to Germnay and the famous Nerbergring where Mark Webber scored his first pole and subsequent win from 130 starts. Growing up with a Dad who loved watching the F1 and MotoGP on a Sunday while my Mum was off working at her market stall gave me a huge appreciation and love for motorsport and seeing an Aussie win his first race (even after having to serve drive through) was a highlight of the weekend. I may not have ACTUALLY seen him cross the finish line (my eye lids got the better of me) but that's what morning news is for right?

4. Is it spring yet?
No, but it's so close I can feel it.... Not a cloud in the sky yesterday and another gorgeous week ahead, I can't help but drool over pictures of pastel shorts, lightweight shifts and metallic thongs to wish winter away. I wouldn't normally give credit to The Hills Heidi & Stephanie but the two of them have managed to look summery and sweet in their shades of green - no doubt a big colour for the up-coming warmer months.
