Pejic at The Cup

I was quite interested to hear Andrej Pejic will be attending the soon to be held Melbourne Cup. Andrej will be supping champers and nibbling canapes in the posh sponsor Swisse marquee at Flemington, as any international supermodel should. I first mentioned him in 2010. Take away the make up and stylist work, and you still have an impossibly beautiful looking lad.

All empty air headed beauty and no brains? I don't think so. He grew up in the socio-economically disadvantaged area of Broadmeadows and attended Melbourne High in South Yarra, a selective government school, so he is clearly no fool. I don't know, but I would like to think he is a nice person, in spite of his fame.

    Who is, pray tell, Andrej Pejic???
    Is the photo of who as him, or who as she?
    I was under the mistaken impression that one went to the Melbourne Cup, now tickets have to be purchased almost years in advance to have control of the "idiot" brigade to get through the gates, to watch horse racing and not nibbling canapes or sipping "Champers".
    I have unfortunately NEVER attended, but I love my horse racing at the big carnivals.
    I am trying for the umpteeth time to pick a first four - almost did it in 2000, but the horse called over the line as 5th had a longer tongue - $177,000 blew up in my face, all for $24.00 outlay! How I hate that bloody long tongued horse - now dead!
    Enjoy your Melbourne Public holiday, why it is not a National Holiday is one of the mysteries of life. No one works and big TV screens are being placed up in Squares here in Brisbane for the people to watch.
    What the hell does the Queen's birthday mean here anymore - held not on her birthday and at various dates by the States???? Ridiculous.
    Now off the soapbox - cheers

    1. Colin, apparently Andrej is a femiman. He or she, I don't know how he likes it, is a very successful person who is getting Australia accolades overseas.

      There is a strong connection between HRH and horses. Perhaps you QBH should be celebrated on our Cup Day.

      I would rather see people lose money on nags than when using mute electronic machines.

  2. I think I'm going to give the Melbourne cup a miss this year. Just put a couple of dollars in the sweep at work instead.

  3. He is an intriguing model, isn't he and, like I said about YOU the other day, I bet he'll end up with an interesting life story....

    1. Nah Kath. My mother wasn't on the stage!!! The acronym of the so many word writing makes me think of Ça plane pour moi.

  4. Andrew, I can assure you that Andrej is both intelligent and unspoiled by his fame. I taught with his mother, and she is delighted with her much-loved son's success.

    1. Barb, how nice to make your acquaintance after such a long time. I perhaps should have added the long suffering Barb. That is interesting about Andrej. I think even better of him now.

    What cheek you Melbournians have! That would still leave the rest of us with one less public holiday than you.

    1. Victor, Victoria is a productive state and we don't spend all our time at the beach, so we are owed an extra day.
