Model takes drugs. People shocked. People stupid. Me not shocked.

I’ve heard Michelle Leslie called a few things lately…

…fake Muslim…

…convicted drug user…

…former model…

Frankly, I would be WTF OMG horrified if someone called me a ‘former model’. Defamatory to the max times a million, mang.

But what is ‘fake Muslim’ anyway?

Something sold down at Paddy’s markets by greasy middle-aged men wearing bum bags and patch-leather jackets? I guess you might be able to find it amongst the billions of fake real-honest-genuine-even-though-it-costs-only-$20-OMG-bargain-Von Dutch rip offs.

“You see how girlfriend’s ‘Louis Vuitton’ handbag has single stitching around the zipper and the pattern print doesn’t line up over the seams? That is so fake. Fakey fake fake fake. Faker than the fake tan on a fake Kyle Sandilands. Faker than an Ian Thorpe girlfriend. FAKE!”

“Yeah, and she also has an intermittent and seemingly non-genuine commitment to a politically topical religion solely for the purposes of establishing mitigating circumstances in an upcoming drugs trial in a foreign country. I hate that.”

“Word. That is so uncool.”


Wow. The imaginary teenage conversations that go on in my head are so articulate these days.

On last night's ABC News she was called a "convicted model". Which is funny. Because modelling isn't an offence. Geddit?

Oh, I get it.

I think The Chaser had it right this morning on the radio when they questioned whether she was allowed to continue her modelling career, since Australian law forbids her profiting from her conviction... heh. I guess she'll have to worm her way out of that one!

I just want to say here that I always find these Doorbitch/Word Verification tests really hard! I always feel like I've drunk too much and I have to speak v..e..r..y... c..a..r..e..f..u..l..l..y... when I type the letters.

At first, I thought it would be hard to draw the line between any modelling jobs that she may otherwise of had, and any modelling jobs she only obtained as a result of the publicity surrounding her case.

Then I looked at her photo, and realised it would probably be pretty easy to tell when she had scored a contract above and beyond her normal standard of work.

You're not Robinson Crusoe there. I always get them wrong. The way the letters are all distorted makes me feel as if I am drunk too.

But I was getting a tonne of spam (and not the good type) and I thought this approach was more inclusive than requiring all commenters to be blogger members.

Lousy spam. I do not like spam, spam I am.

Spam sucks. I had to do something about it too, and chose haloscan. Unfortunately, because I chose the free option, I lost all my blog comments up to that point. I know they're stored somewhere, but couldn't be arsed chasing them around. Pity. There were some beauties.
