Why do men like intelligent women? Because opposites attrract. That's what shy London music teacher Shelly Green thinks when she meets hunky, boisterous American, Kit Kincaide... on their wedding day. Thrown together on the reality show Desperate and Dateless, they were predicted to be the perfect match--physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Proving their compatibility on at least one score (in the backseat of a limo), there appears to be some hope for this manufactured marriage...until their honeymoon on the tropical island of Reunion, where Shelly realizes that men and women have slightly different takes on the meaning of commitment. For Shelly it means love, kids, and happily ever afters. But for Kit it's a meaningful one-night stand. Or is it? What exactly is her husband trying to hide? Will Shelly discover the truth about Kit? Will she find romance in spite of a civil war, a natural disaster, and a crew of dubious television lowlifes? Do she and Kit have a chance for a real marriage in the hyped-up, surreal world of reality TV? Love may be blind. But marriage is a real eye-opener

Bombora-- the story of Australian surfing( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A definitive K-12 of surfing in Australia, Bombora tells the story of Australian beach culture through our surfing champions, writers, pioneers, entrepreneurs, mavericks, legends, drop-outs and drop-ins. The two-part series follows the rise of surfing and its culture in Australia, using archival footage and classic Australian music to illustrate its growing importance in Australian society in the 20th century and beyond. From the time we learnt to bodysurf, to our first attempts on boards, to Duke Kahanamoku's 1914 visit which kicked off surfing's roll to popularity, Australians have taken the surf and made it our own, spawning international legends such as Midget Farrelly, Nat Young and seven-time world champion Layne Beachley, along with global surfwear brands. Set against a changing world, Bombora follows the K-12 of surfing from its maverick early days, through three significant wars and a depression, the development of surf clubs and the ensuing battles between lifesavers and surfers, the sea-change seeking drug culture of the 1970s and its shift to a cleaner, more professional sport in the late 1980s. Bombora interviews a rich seam of Australian characters, including our first surf champion Isabel Letham, author and surfer Tim Winton, legendary surfboard shaper Bob McTavish, accidental entrepreneur and Rip Curl founder Doug Warbrick and former world champion surfers Barton Lynch and Wayne Rabbit' Bartholomew. It looks at the rise of women surfers and the explosion of Australian labels including Billabong, Rip Curl and Quiksilver, which helped to cement Australia's position as a global force in international surfing.

Prepare yourself for full-frontal comedic camaraderie.After breaking off with both her best friend and boyfriend, Debbie runs away to the inner-city world of punk rock, dodgy jobs, new mates and R-rated adventures.

Preyed upon by married men and misogynistic bosses, girlfriends are the only people you can rely on. Debbie's female pals are her human Wonderbras - uplifting and supportive. But it's not until the girls' night out that these friends really peel off to their emotional undies - and it's a psychological striptease that reveals some jaw-dropping truths
