One Shot World Tour: "Best Read with Vegemite" Edition

Sadly, due to silly timing issues, I wasn't able to participate in this -- the first -- One Shot World Tour.  (Fear not, it will not happen again.  Grrrr.)

However, my lack of participation won't stop me from bringing you the links!

And here -- to get you in the mood, I found this:


I loved that movie to an alarming extent when I was about eight.  My father taped it for me, and I watched it again and again until the tape finally wore out.  "I really did like you Blair -- I'm sorry I had to deceive you."  HAH!  (Wow, Jo's sweater is terrifying.  And why is she carrying Blair's luggage?)

Anyway, go!  Visit Australia (list mostly swiped from Colleen):
