'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

Commander,I always used to consider that you had a definite anti- authoritarian streak in you.
It seems that you have managed to retain this even though you are authority.
That's practically zen.
Tears are the silent language of grief
Am wet and hungry. Watching the Social Network later. Maybe they should make a film about Cricket Web. Could have a scene like the one at the start of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 with all the Harry Potters, but with Precams.

I wish to have my say about the show Australian Master Chef. I think it should be taken off air as the participants are not mature enough to handle the emotional ups and downs of the show.

"I am so sorry" *starts crying*
Do we have to have tears every episode - are people not capable of accepting constructive criticism without breaking down. Just ban the show - if the participants can not conduct themselves like adults.
Imagine if they conducted themselves like that in real life - I am pulling you over for speeding - OMG tears roll down the drivers face.
I realise that the pressure of TV must get to you after a while but get a grip.

Haha, excellent post.
had a good chuckle from this .
SOME time ago, when approached by the one-time AC/DC bassist Mark Evans for advice on writing his book of memoirs, I emphasised that if ever in doubt, whack in more anecdotes. As in, leave the heavy analysis to the music writers, while you deliver on what only you can - yarns from life on the road with the lads.
Released a fortnight ago, Dirty Deeds is a beauty and is indeed chocka with great yarns, including this one: in April 1977, Evans finds himself at the end of two days straight of rampaging through Paris with lead singer Bon Scott, who he describes as like ''your slightly crazed uncle … the one who gets outrageously pissed at weddings and tries it on with all the young lassies''. As the sun comes up over the Boulevard Saint-Germain, Evans and Scott repair to the hotel balcony to share one last bottle of Bordeaux.
''We were well and truly lit up and savouring a stunning Parisian sunrise,'' Evans recounts. ''Life was good. I'd come a long way from Prahran - and in a pretty short time. As I was having a serious gloat to Bon, who was somewhat the worse for wear after two days on the turps, he stared fixedly at the Eiffel Tower with an odd look on his face.
'''What's up, mate?' I asked him.
''Slowly, Bon turned to me. 'You know,' he said, 'there's a tower just like that in Paris.'
its a keeper
Seriously though, on a reality TV show you need a certain amount of emotionally driven contestants so you get enough drama to keep the show interesting; so I think the more contestants like "Sophie", the better for the producers of a reality TV show.
