2015 Predictions

Ok, so I was not on the money with last years predictions. Jennifer Hawkins did not enter Federal Parliament, although many times throughout the year, I think she should have. Instead we had Jacqui Lambie. And that is all I will say about that.

Foodies and food tribes continued to dominate the press, with Pete (For Paleo) Evans expanding his cult, as did the lovely and lithe Sarah Wilson, who shunned sugar for another year. I often wonder what would happen if these two hooked up in a romantic and domestic fashion. Together they could create a new food movement. But I just could not work out what that would be….

BUT I WAS RIGHT ON THE CULOTTES! They did come back, even for a second, but they were in the shops so I a beginning to think that I have some sort of marvellous trend reading ability. Like Faith Popcorn.

The Pantone Colour of the Year has been announced, and yet again my beloved PUCE did not win. I present to you…..

Or, as I like to call it, day old period stain.

Moving right along, we continued to believe that fossil fuels rock and there is no climate change. Except that this man on the beach yesterday was talking to his mate saying that unless we do something about this in the next ten years, we will all be fucked. You heard it hear first. From me eavesdropping.

Something I didn’t pick was the return of that foul, soapy drink known to us kids of the 90’s as SUB ZERO. It was nasty back then, even if you added grenadine. Whoever thought this was a good idea needs a stern talking to.

And can we even talk about sliders? Aren’t they just little burgers? And why are they on every menu?

I am pleased to announce the super food on 2015 is……¬†Amaranth!

Doesn’t that look delicious!

In other predictions, I suspect that Tony and Peta will get jack shit of all the crap that they dodge, and run off together to start a B & B in Dublin. I suspect that Camilla Franks will design a line of kaftans for Target. I suspect that we will replace green smoothies with Cottees Lime Cordial, and that we will all be getting around with mullets.

2015 is the year that my book will come out. I suspect average sales but hope that this who do buy it, enjoy it.

Animal wise, I think that we will all be getting in on the Siamese Fighting Fish Bandwagon…. in particular, MARSALA SIAMESE FIGHTING FISH!

And particularly I suspect that I will be here, sitting on this couch this time next year, PROVING THAT I WAS RIGHT ¬†ABOUT EVERYTHING…..

So Happy New Year to you, my lovely friend, and I will see you next year.
