Two Debbie articles in a week! Whatever did you do to deserve that? I guess you're all just very lucky little vegemites! Seriously today is my favourite day at one of my favourite times of year. Melbourne Cup Day. We get a holiday and everything. I just like the parties, not to mention the chance to spend a lot on an outfit and a hat...you have to have a hat at the Cup, or at the very least a fascinator. I cheated a little bit...no time to get an article out (I'm actually filing this on my phone from the course carpark), so this is one I wrote for Bared Affair a few years back. To get the real feeling you need to pop a bottle of champers and drink it while reading.
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria made a curious guest pay for the privilege of basking in her presence at the Melbourne Cup.
