Time to look at the week at MM and open the floor to you so you can share anything that’s on your mind. It’s shaping up to be a big week at MM with the return of Mamamia on Sky News this Friday at 9:15pm. I’m nervous and excited and daunted and terrified and happy all at once. Business as usual then.
I’m getting EXCITED, did I mention that? We have a new timeslot and a new format (that big scary desk just wasn’t me). Here are the people who’ll be joining me around the table for a chat about the week:
I’m also going to be talking to Lisa Pryor, the journalist and author whose new book is this:
I’m just finishing it at the moment and it’s pretty extraordinary. She has a fascinating and controversial viewpoint that should change the drug debate in this country. Oh, and in the process of writing the book, she made a dramatic change in her own life. I’m so looking forward to talking with her about it. You can buy the book here.
Here’s the promo..
And one more..
Our choice of office footwear has, I know, become a source of fascination for many Mamamia readers who have told us how jealous they are that we have such a relaxed attitude to what constitutes suitable work shoe attire. On Monday, after heading back to The Today Show, I waved the white flag and slunk into my ugg boots that I keep under my desk.
When it was time to go to Sky News to record a new promo for the show (which you can see below), I briefly considered putting my ‘proper’ shoes back on (black ankle boots from Sportsgirl that I bought in Chadstone a year ago and which I’ve worn constantly ever since). But only briefly. Ugg boots it was.
I assumed I’d be sitting on a stool like I usually am for promos but not this time. Standing up! Cropped from the waist though so it was OK. Hell, that’s just how I roll. Wouldn’t have even cared if you’d seen them in the promo. Wore them out to lunch too. Wonder if I’ll start an ugg-boots-and-opaques trend?
Ok, no, that’s not going to happen.
The lovely and talented Jess was in town and dropped by for a chat. Remy (my 2yo) was in the office at the same time and Jess is wearing his pirate hat. I am waving his pirate sword and we’re having a jolly old time, me hearties.
The office barbeque
The Mamamia team keeps growing and we thought we’d break bread, salad and sausages this week. We made the whole building smell like a sausage sizzle.
We’ll be posting on the census next week but I received the following email from a reader who makes a very poignant point:
