Woo hoo! It's Micheline! I tried so hard to make Micheline a blogstar, but she's just so... well, so neutral. But still, it's nice to see her again! Also, she has the weirdest podiums ever:



It's another whirlwind tour of Europe for Condi! She was in Germany yesterday, and today she's set to head up some economic forum at a ski resort. Cross your fingers for some Condi Snowbunny photos!

I just wish photographers would stop doing this:

Those aren't podiums... they're GIANT CHEESE GRATERS!

Mmmm, grate me up some sharp cheddar.

No, they are made-in-Switzerland spaceships, lent by Micheline (can I borrow a tyre, please) for Condi to get back to her home in outer space. Micheline intends to join her as well. What a lovely couple they will be ...

Matty and Kelster: My first thought looking at that first picture was that Micheline reminded my strongly of Twiki from the Buck Rogers television series.
