Even though I do look rather good in a bikini I think I will leave ending sickness and poverty and world peace for Miss Universe, I have had enough seriousness this week already. So what would be my perfect invention - Beam me up Scotty - teleportation for sure. I so hate traffic, and it seems to take FOREVER to get around the suburbs in Melbourne. How many extra hours in the day would there be if you could cut out travel time? Separated by oceans - no worries, zap over for lunch. Need your Mum to babysit and she lives in the Solomon Islands (Hi Mum) she can be there faster then Glen can say, "Is McDonald's considered romantic if you don't go drive thru and sit in the restaurant." Unfortunately it may also lead to the in-laws popping over for lunch after you intentionally moved continents to get away but there is a down side to even the best inventions.
This is actually my 200th post and I was intending to do a giveaway but after the last week I am a little spent, so it will have to be later in the week I think.
As Jenaveve so eloquently put it last week Mr Linky was on the blinky for the last few weeks, but he is back this week so if you are playing just pop the link in below so we can find you and I am also hoping that Miss August Street will be able to give us next weeks Eye spy.

Glen took Poppy into the city yesterday and they were walking over the footbridge from Southgate over to Flinders St Station when a young guy in front of them started having a seizure, his head was being cut on the non-slip surface on the bridge so Glen was holding his head while someone rang the ambulance. He didn't want Poppy to see or touch anything so he had her standing behind him while he was still talking to her. All of a sudden the lady ringing the ambulance said to Glen, "Isn't that your little girl?". Glen swung around and there is a man carrying off Poppy. Glen ran after him screaming to bring her back - he just kept calmly towards the train station where he easily would of been lost in the crowd. Thankfully Glen caught up to him, grabbed Poppy and popped him. Just then the cops ride past and want to charge him with assault, it wasn't until Glen explained that he was yelling out and he didn't stop that they finally realised what was going on. His explanation that he was taking her so she didn't have to see the sick man wasn't washing when you have gone 50m away.
I always struggle to decide how much to share on my blog, and to be honest this isn't something I would normally but I am not someone who would ever think that could happen in the middle of the day in a busy city, it is more of a cop show drama. The scariest thing is neither did he that morning as he brushed his teeth and put on his business suit, he was just an opportunist. Thankfully most of the horror is unrealised by Poppy who is enjoying the extra kisses and cuddles.
