But only if you've nothing better to do, like plucking your nostrils

Me, on the telly, tonight, 7 pm, channel 9. Amusing.

Oh Lexi, I have cancelled my nose plucking session, I have put the date and time in my diary and have even written it on my hand in case I forget to look in my diary. It's been a while since I've had a Harlot game show fix...I cannot wait!

Adrian said...

Exciting! I have happy memories (which is to say, I still remember) of you winning a lifetime's supply of bears on Sale of the Century.

It was almost as much fun as doing Honours with you.

It's a bit late for me to wish you luck, so I ply you with post-live adoration instead.

And my parents are still paying the storage costs for those bears, Adrian. God bless 'em (the parents, not the bears).

Hope the fun, the games, me failing to remember the name of a certain ship that sank in the Atlantic (circa 1912), the smiley-smiley Ed Phillips, and the considerably smarter Livinia Nixon justify you foregoing your nose plucking, Katibel.

Love to youse both,
lexi

Alas, I am deprived by cruel geography of the opportunity to watch you wow the Australian viewing public. I hereby demand a full recap, so that I can revel in my once-removed-from-a-televised-person reflected glory.

(I myself am a Televised Person, but as it was a request for a song on Rage, and as I was 9- I requested the Backstreet Boys- it can hardly compare.)

Karen said...

You were marvellous! I love the way you kept your eye on the prizes- that's what matters, after all. I'd never watched the show before, but I knew Adam (?) was going to win as soon as he got that pediatrics question wrong. How many game shows have you been on exactly?

Livinia Livinia,

Temptress televinia.

Smarter but in Realand,

And a bit skinnier.

Livinia Livinia,

Wish I could live in ya.

alexis said...

That's lovely, Emmy. Twenty more like that, and they'll be lining up to publish your collected works.

Karen: errrm - cough - three. Ahem.

Jennifer: I don't think I could bear writing the full recap (although me mum has taped it, so perhaps when you're back in Australie, there can be a showing). In short, there's a lot of make-up, a lot of waffle, some questions, I answer a few, I mis-answer a few, some other people answer some, and I confess to fancying Bert Newton. I'll keep you posted on my new toys as they start arriving.

Kate said...

Nice work Lex, like that you went for the prizes straight away, unlike that silly woman who was there with only a pen to show for her efforts. Was a little disappointed about the lack of bears on offer though...

Can't quite picture you sitting in front of your enormous tv dolled up in the latest Alannah Hill frock but I'm trying.

And anyone who utters the phrase "I fancy Bert Newton" is a tv legend in my books.

Yours, in admiration. XX
Ps: why was Lavinia wearing a wedding dress?

prude said...

No other blogger is allowed to lead Prude to Temptation.

Mr Jumbles say: That is high praise.

P.S. what is the use of the internet fridge? Does anyone blog while getting themselves a glass of milk?

alexis said...

Thanks, Kate! I don't really fancy Nert Bewton. Not in that sense of fancy. But I'm glad I said it. Hope someone tells him.

As for watching telly in my Alannah Hill frock: the telly is going straight to ebay, and the frocks, well, I reckon I can pull 'em off. I might need to invest in some red lipstick, and get myself a velvet chaise longe - but that's where the proceeds from the telly kick in.

xx

ps: Livinia is way cool. Not responsible for the inane costuming. I blame the channel 9 patriarchs.

alexis said...

Prude, m'dear, I agree: mixing internet and fridge just ain't kosher. It's like boiling a baby goat in his mother's milk. Or wearing a mini skirt with ugg boots. Or wasabi icecream. WRONG.

Aromatic Ant said...

I have no doubt you'll manage to pull off the frocks. So much so that you'll probably have people wanting to pull 'em off.

Maria said...

The tragedy of it all is the fuzzy reception on 9. Where I was WIN comes out better than 9 and they advertised it on WIN - see my complaint here but instead showed some very non-newsworthy news instead and I instead switched back to some fuzzy reception on 9. Very false advertising indeed. I advise people to complain to Channel 9. They should not tempt one so with false programming guides, and secondly, what possible regional news could be of such importance that they would block out our 'Lexi's night of TV stardom!

It's disgusting.

alexis said...

Good grief! I had no idea you'd gone to such lengths! Thank you. I hope the channel-flicking experience wasn't too arduous.

Erin said...

Yay Lexi for your stunning scoop of stuff! Not only are you smart, and quick on the buzzer, but you're telegenic too! And your hair looked funky as. Even funkier than usual. The persons in the Temptation styling department should be congratulated.

alexis said...

Thanks, Erin! The hair was being abnormally compliant, although I felt a bit jipped in the make-up room, where the hair-person was lavishing all manner of sprays and unguents and time on the other contestants' hair, but took one look at me and said she had nothing to add. Product?, I asked. Yeah, I spose, said she, and dropped the meagerest dab of something oily onto my head.
