A little piece of America

1. 'This is it' was great - I was pretty darn impressed by how good his voice sounded. He did look super skinny, but still showed off some classic dance moves. Would have been an amazing concert. I enjoyed watching the movie though, toe tapping & interesting!

2. Official annoucement (from me at least:)

Ben & Jerry's has opened their first store in Australia and IT'S IN MANLY!!!!!!!!!!!!

It opened this past Monday (so I hear!) and is located down near ribs & rumps, facing Manly beach. It is open 10am to 10pm every day.

Their website says: 'We’ve gone to town and even decked our new pad out with tables, chairs and free wi-fi access so you can sit there enjoying the sea view until the cows come home.'

I am SO there - YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

****** UPDATE - I have been informed that the shop is MASSIVE and they will be giving away free ice cream on November 28th (I wonder if that's the official opening that Ben & Jerry themselves are coming too?). Since that is the day my parents arrive, Mom & Dad - prepare for a Manly walk + ice cream!!! Hooray! Should be a Great way to combat jet lag!


  1. Uhm-m-m-m-m
    I love Cherry Garcia

  2. Dear Monique:
    I agree that "This is It" was an excellent movie and really showcased the genius that Michael Jackson had in dance and music.

    Can't wait to see you again! Nice of them to open a Ben and Jerry's for us in Manly. : ) Counting down the days until we are in the sunshine.

    Love, Mom

  3. Hi, you don't know me but I'm following your blog these days. ;)

    I'm jealous that you have Ben and Jerry's and I don't. The most American Ice Cream you can get around here is Sara Chocolate or Vanilla.
