Well, I'm feeling guiltily like I'm camping on my favourite handle, here, so how about I post some content? LJ readers, this will be cross-posted, thus the new journal reference. My apologies to those who'll get it twice. I only really have a little time before I must be in bed, but I've been meaning to do a run-down of the Cultural Events (tm) I've attended since I moved to Melbourne. Aside from work, I mean!

Comedy Fest gigs: Adam Hills, Josie Long, Tim Minchin.All charming and hilarious. Didn't get a dud gig in the lot, though I would have liked to have seen more performances if I'd been able. Next year!
Wicked - So, SO worth it. Really enjoyed it, and I thought it would be overrated, or something. We had the understudy for Elphaba, and can't imagine how anyone could do a more accomplished performance.
MSO kids' concert - MSO does little snippets of popular works to showcase each section. Elflet enjoyed, particularly stamping up and down the riser on which she was seated. Oh well. We can't dictate someone else's interaction with a performance, right?
The Magic Flute - Hmm. Really, really enjoyed the individual performances, but something about the direction left me a little cold. I was cheering on the Queen of the Night to win, and not just because she's a friend.
Cirque du Soleil - LOUD! And impressive. The Elflet managed to get through to the bows before melting down in over-stimulation, which I thought was excellent timing, on her part.
Star Trek movie - So THAT'S where all those pop-culture references come from! Not a Star Trek fan for the most part, but I'm glad I saw it.
Avenue Q - So glad I saw this. Very funny. Was a more low-key production than I was expecting, for some reason. Performers were very good, though.
August: Osage County - This was BRILLIANT. I'm not a theatre buff. I'll actively avoid plays, normally. But I might have to revise that attitude. I was brought very close to tears at one point, and laughed harder than anyone should at drug addiction and family collapse and incest.
Collingwood Children's Farm's Winter Solstice Bonfire - As I said on FB, this was all vegie burgers, hot chocolate, children everywhere, fire, and of course, Melbourne's entire complement of affluent urban white hippies. Enjoyed it, although very crowded. And, you know, now the sun will rise. :D


YOU'RE ON MY FRIENDS LIST, I want to know 28 things about you. I don't care if we've never talked, never really clicked, or if we already know everything about each other. I really don't. You are obviously on my flist, so let me know with whom I'm friends!

Hi Shiv, *waves*.
I'm too lazy to do the meme but it is nice to see you pop back to the old skool LJ every now and then. Glad to see that Melbourne is working out, your life looks glamorous to me!
