GEELONG filmmaker Kristy Fuller was less than impressed when she couldn’t find her purse anywhere.
She turned the house upside down, called the last place where she had it and convinced herself it was lost.
She spent all morning cancelling and reordering her licence, Medicare cards, personal bank cards, business bank cards, credit cards, zoo membership…
The she returned home to put the laundry on and, well, guess what she found in the washing machine.
Her terse comments identified the suspect of the intended money laundering operation.
“Ethan, my darling boy, you are a little…”
Cats coach Chris Scott did a double take of his own at his media conference this week.
Asked about North Melbourne talisman Brent Harvey, who sat out the team’s elimination final against Essendon with suspension for lashing out at a tagger, Scott started on the standard response.
“We’re not going in with a plan to antagonise Boomer Harvey,” he began.
But pressed as to whether it might be worth a try, Scott recanted, to the amusement of the media pack.
“Actually, yes, now that you mention it. Everything is worth a try.”
Boomer, you have been warned.
Scott was also pressed about the extra issues involved in competing against twin brother Brad, coach of the Kangaroos, and how the family coped.
“I think my mother has usually supported the underdog,” Scott smiled.
“The real issue for her this week is to work out who the underdog is.”
Which also begs the question of whether Cats can be (under)dogs.
The fiery front cover of the latest Geelong Coast magazine (GC) certainly raised some temperatures over the past week.
The flaming background set the scene but the rippling torso of handsome Avalon firefighter Luke Wood really turned up the heat among local ladies.
Kim Shields threw fuel on the fire with a post under a Facebook image of Luke’s cover.
“What is that smell?” she wondered.
“Oh wait, it’s the single women of Geelong setting their houses on fire.”
