It has been another busy, yet exciting week for me despite doing a lot of cleaning. The other morning I came into work.....only to find out that Wayne Brady, star of Whose Line is it Anyway was coming onto the show today!

I quickly looked down at what I was wearing. Damn. I really should have worn something more glamorous and less casual. Usually I only wear casual clothes as they always end up getting dirty. Maybe I should invest in an apron, labelled 'Krill'. Anyway, for me, meeting Wayne Brady is a big deal. I used to watch him when I was younger and admire his amazing talent and the way he could sing anything on cue. For today, I knew I had to put down my dustpan and broom and glam up. Even if it meant a bit of lippy, perfume and a quick hair curl. The rest of the Breakfast team were just as excited to meet the man himself, but only Krill is allowed to 'meet and greet' while the others had to stay behind their computers.

Wayne turned out to be the most down to earth bloke I have ever met. He was so friendly, funny and dare I say, SEXY! He had on tight black jeans, a black polo and his cologne carried through the halls of TVNZ. There I was, staring at him, trying desperately to find something impressive to say, but ended up grabbing his arm, pulling it to my face and in awe announcing like a true idiot 'Wow, your watch is very sparkly.' Nice. I wandered back to the cupboard and pulled out my dustpan again.

His interview with Paul went so well, with our favourite lady on autocue, Helen, being dragged on set by Wayne himself, despite her weak knees at his sex appeal. I thought he was sexy, but didn't find myself sweating over him. Unfortunately, Helen did. Just before he left, he told me I could have a backstage pass to his Saturday night Comedy Show. I've never been offered anything like that before! I knew I should have just said yes, thank you and shook his hand. But in the moment, all that came out was a squeal. Nice again. But in case you're wondering, I did attend the Comedy Show and went out for a few cheeky beverages with him afterwards. It was a mighty success. Go Krill!

It's been fairly busy behind the scenes lately with a lot of events occurring on the news. People have been working very hard and keeping their heads down. But amidst the gloom, Breakfast is still able to laugh behind the scenes. One of the things that make us laugh is some of the feedback we receive. Some of your texts and emails are very funny! Some viewers even send in gifts! One of the gifts I will tell you about was what we received not too long ago. It was in a small pink packaged box addressed to the 'Breakfast Team'. After the show, Paul and Alison always come into the newsroom to the area where the Breakfast team sit and we all have a quick discussion about the show. Paul and Ali discuss what they thought worked well and not so well. Well, when Paul and Alison came into the newsroom, it was time to open the small box. We all peered inside in anticipation. Inside, wrapped in cellophane was&woman's underwear. A black g-string! The team burst out in laughter. What were we meant to do with it and why were we sent it? There was no note. It was an odd anonymous present.

With cleaning tools on hand, I shovelled the g-string up, put on my yellow gloves and hung it on the producer's wall in his office. He hasn't taken it down! So whenever we are all in his office, we can't help but laugh at the fact that he must not be bothered by the fact he has a g-string hanging up, whether it's new or not! It really is an eye sore though! So for the viewer who sent us a g-string and whether it's your own or you bought it brand new, it remains a prominent feature of Tony (the producers) office.

Till next time,

I am being ordered to butter a bun.
