We haven't laughed so much in ages. It was shocking, without a doubt, but very funny. The only downer was that I forgot to bring my camera. This was v. silly because not only did Mr Waters do a meet and greet after the show (how many celebs do that these days?) but also because I was unable to take any pics of The Perth Concert Hall, a beautiful Modernist building I had almost forgotten about.
This photo isn't mine...it's not a particularly good one either (this coming from me!) but it's better than nothing...

And while searching for C.H. pics I found this one, here
I couldn't believe my eyes! It's one of our favourite buildings! Anthony and I have driven into the city (Northbridge) on many occasions just to check it out. On our last little "pilgrimage" (not so long ago) it was still a functioning electrical repair shop. We could see the little old man working away inside through the front window. Now it has been abandoned, probably awaiting demolition...we had dreams, as you do, of buying it and making it our home. Well, that's one dream that's been shattered. Sigh.
Anyway...I am over. Totally. Our garage sale. So no pics today. Instead I'll end with a quote from John Waters
you have to remember that it is impossible to commit a crime while reading a book
for someone described as a shock auteur supreme, he has alot of quite sensible ideas.
