Message: the very well related Clare Hawkes has scored the gig as Spring Carnival ambassador. I wonder if this is a paying gig? I hope not, for her sake, as it really looks like a case of jobs for the boys/girls. I bet she will do a great job though. It's unfortunate, but the cynics like me will always percieve cronyism when jobs like these are handed out.
Message: 2004 being an Olympic year I think I would have preferred an Olympian, Brooke Hansen jumps to mind. Why would that be ? Or then again I wonder was Chris Judd's girl is doing during the spring ? I'd like to see that red dress outdoors at Flemington with the wind howling ?

Message: My mistake, only read it in passing in the Herald Sun - I was more focused on the half page picture of her. Never seen what Michael looks like, but he ain't got a great gene pool in the looks department.
