How to be a millionaire

Both my kids were in bed by 8.30 tonight. I can't believe it. Nothing like an hour scooter ride to tire little feet and to whittle away some of the inches from my backside.

My husband is in Alice Springs at a conference. I've got the television to myself.

I'VE GOT THE TELEVISION TO MYSELF.

Just before hitting blogland, I searched through the hundreds of cable channels and found nothing to watch. Not even repeats of The Real Housewives of New York (have another drink Ramona) or Tabatha's Salon Takeover.

Flick, flick, flick. Oh. There's a guy I recognise. Who is it? It's the bloke who plays Sporticus in the children's show Lazytown. Type and listen.

Troll through Facebook.  I am woman therefore I multi-task.

Sporticus is also the creator of the show. The camera pans through his wardrobe... his collection of Tag watches and his designer ties. Now showing his collection of expensive cars. Kaching.

People, I am in the wrong game. Why am I stressing about interviewing financial analysts? Why, in my 'other' job am I teaching kids about history?

The kiddie market is huge..I've just got to find a niche. Perhaps I can write a TV series about my kids and call it 'Alex and Charlotte'. Sort of like 'Charlie and Lola' but from an Aussie perspective. I could write episodes about how they get chased by magpies on the way to school, how they try to avoid stepping on the bindis in the front lawn and how an echidna walked through the playground at school one day (it really did).

Keep on watching as Sporticus swims around in a pool.....Now there's a pommy guy on the show with a really bad peroxide bouffant. He's waterskiing. They show a big house.

A peroxide bouffant water skiing.

Must watch to see how HE made his millions.

Just in case you don't know what an echidna looks like, here is the cutest one I've ever seen.

All of your ideas are wonderful! How badly do magpies SUCK, man. Hate them, and their stupid spindly little beaks.

I'm pretty sure I've never seen an echidna before, but that was is pretty close! Long as it's not in my yard anyways:)

Yeah echidnas are cute and harmless. We had walk down our street one day and since it was drawing a crowd, it took off into the bush.
