Monday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Parenting: A new report by the Australian Bureau of Statistics has found that women want to work less hours so they can spend more time with their kids, while men want more time off so that they can socialise. Really? Ugh. Find out more here. I know a LOT of men who are eager to spend any spare moments they have with their children, but perhaps the ‘majority’ of fellas have not caught up yet. I think it’s only a matter of time, as shared parenting becomes the norm and the importance of fathers is even FURTHER championed.
Big Brother: The newest incarnation of the Australian Big Brother starts tonight. In a survey of JustB’s Facebook page fans, 2 out of 3 people would rather eat steel wool than watch. OMG. Still. I will be watching. I am a sucker for that stuff, and one of my favourite Australian media personalities, Chrissie Swan got her big break on BB, so for that I am eternally grateful and loyal to the show. More (mostly an interview with Sonia Kruger, actually!) here.
Beastie Boys: If you know me, you’ll know that I love the Beastie Boys. I named my blog, shop and cat after one of them, even. I was totally stoked to read this piece about the late Beastie, Adam Yauch, who specified in his will that no Beastie Boys song could be used in any ad or jingle, no matter what. Yay. Not everyone’s for sale. How rad!
