Ahhhh ...  
Lovely day. Pericles with pushdragon, including Marcus Graham with lots of chest showing, brilliant Japanese drumming and post-play chocolate, then lovely dinner with friends including crazed parrot. I had forgotten that Pericles contains pirates, the stupidest plot contrivances ever and the great clodhopping boots of the Exposition Fairy doing her version of Country Dancing, but you know, add some good drumming, great company and hot men, and I am prepared to forgive anything.

Minor dramas in between the play and dinner, including Mr Brammers taking to his bed with flu and having to find my way in Suburbia which would have been easier had the taxi not dropped me off a kilometre before the *actual* corner I wanted and had Suburbia believed that people should be able to walk in it, but the cake and I made it in reasonable time and condition.

And the walk was spent in pleasant cogitations on the fineness of Marcus Graham, to whit:

It really is a lovely day! Or, at least it was. The sun was out for .5 seconds this morning! \o/ I had actually half-contemplated going for a swim until the clouds moved back in.

I hope Mr Brammers gets better fast though!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 4th, 2009 02:41 pm (UTC)
Oh, a swim would be lovely! Though it is actually cold here, so I have been happy about all the walking today involved.

Mr Brammers has been put to bed in the spare room with a hot water bottle and plenty of fluids. Poor lamb, he is rubbish when he's sick.
Heather: Future Queenfaynia on July 4th, 2009 02:42 pm (UTC)
It would be! Today should have been the best day for it. Except it became cloudy again. Now my face is sad once more.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 4th, 2009 02:51 pm (UTC)
Maybe it will be warm under the clouds later?
Heather: Beach Chairsfaynia on July 4th, 2009 02:52 pm (UTC)
Oh, the warmth isn't the problem. The rain/thunderstorms are the problem. If it starts raining again, I may hurt something.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 4th, 2009 02:57 pm (UTC)
Ah ... Is it at least needed for the gardens?
Heather: Baby Says Bitch Plzfaynia on July 4th, 2009 03:00 pm (UTC)
It's been raining every single day for the past three weeks. We've been under flood warnings.

I think the gardens will survive one day without rain *G*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 4th, 2009 03:01 pm (UTC)
Three weeks is just overkill. Still, you may as well go swimming, given you're probably wet anyway ;-)
Heather: Stupid Giggly Facesfaynia on July 4th, 2009 03:05 pm (UTC)

You make an excellent argument there.

But first I've got to go and fetch my mom's car keys I left in the mall Weds o.o

Oops. And then I've got to go and iron my fingers for signing up for another fest.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 4th, 2009 03:06 pm (UTC)
OH NO! Which fest?

(I accidentally signed up for a fair, but it's a FAIR!)
Heather: Kissy Facefaynia on July 4th, 2009 03:13 pm (UTC)
hp_cross_fest, which brings my list of un-pushy fests up to three? Four? reel_merlin, hd_career_fair, hp_cross_fest, severusbigbang, and rpf_big_bang.

I hope those are it, because I can't remember any other.

(How'd you manage that? XD)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 4th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
(I blame a combination of sleep deprivation, an after-work drink, and Vaysh being REALLY bossy, but in a nice way!)
Heather: Carnivalfaynia on July 4th, 2009 03:54 pm (UTC)
(Vaysh is very persuasive. >.o)

I think I see where the emergency fitted in now :). Walking around that area would be rather tricky in the dark if you weren't certain where you were.

Glad the play was fun: Marcus Graham looks entirely fanciable and a proper subject for contemplating.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 4th, 2009 02:50 pm (UTC)
Heh! I failed to find a chance to call you back, damnit. What happened was that J was going to drive us both out, then I missed my train and so was running late back, which was fine as I thought he could pick me up from Redfern and we could drive straight from there, I rang him and he was still at work, with the flu!

So I knew I was going to be late no matter what: I went to ring T, found I only had her old number, and then realised I would have to go home to find the number and go from there. Got home: had the same number!

So yes, you saved the whole situation TWICE as I was able to ring to say 'Running late! Running out door to grab cab!' And then a little later: 'Somewhere in Meadowbank; things look like this. I think if I walk up a hill that looks like this, your house will be down the other side, does that sound right or am I walking to my death in the wilds of the suburban heartland?'

I could well owe you my life. *mwah!*
AutumnHearti_autumnheart on July 4th, 2009 03:37 pm (UTC)
No worries - when you said 'later' I actually assumed you meant a blog post anyway :).

I'm glad you made it there in one piece, but am slightly amused at the idea of Meadowbank as the suburban heartland: it always seems quite built-up and generally 'inner' to this outer-suburbs girl!

I hope J feels better soon.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:54 am (UTC)
Heh! Up your old way is practically the country! I had forgotten how far it actually was, and as we went sailing past the Rhodes turn-off in the cab I was thinking 'Surely not! We must be lost!''
AutumnHearti_autumnheart on July 5th, 2009 03:30 am (UTC)
Well, there *was* a dairy farm practically next door when Mum and Dad moved in... it usually takes me slightly over an hour to get to your place from there, if the traffic cooperates.

Meadowbank would be so much easier to get to if the trains ran more often than once an hour on the weekend - that was always annoying. It's usually fastest to catch a train to West Ryde, because the intercity express trains headed north stop there, and then taxi down the hill.
Bryoneybryoneybrynn on July 4th, 2009 04:57 pm (UTC)

And a km is like 2 for you with your wee little leggies! ;)

Glad you had fun. Sorry about Mr B!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:56 am (UTC)
Oh hush, you! I am a champion walker! I have the limbs of a 5'4" person. And the shortest waist known to humankind ...

He is up and showering at the moment, he still lives!
Dedicated Escape Artist: Bill Ackjadzialove on July 5th, 2009 02:18 am (UTC)
Ah, yes, the long torso and short legs are mine to claim...
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 02:21 am (UTC)
At least you can buy dresses that have a waist actually near your waist ...
Snape's Angelangela_snape on July 4th, 2009 11:13 pm (UTC)
Mmm, he's lovely!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:57 am (UTC)
Yes he is! And v nice in person!

I have friends who went to see that last night!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2009 01:58 am (UTC)
Let me know if they liked it! I did, but I was looking it at it through a really renaissance perspective. My friend who is more contemporary thought it had a few gaping flaws, she's probably quite right. However, drumming and MG made up for many ills.
Dedicated Escape Artist: Peter Headachejadzialove on July 5th, 2009 02:21 am (UTC)
Pet J for me, but save some for yourself too---I know it's almost worse to have a sick partner than to be sick yourself.

Not that I'm suggesting anything, you've had more than your fair share of the mucus fest, I think.
boodiedharawal on July 5th, 2009 04:31 am (UTC)
Mmmmm, Marcus Graham, I have always fancied him, he made an absolutely amazing Frank'n'Furter.

I have much love for a buff man in suspenders and a corset.
tyghratyghra on July 6th, 2009 04:37 am (UTC)
Glad you liked it. The shakuhachi had me completely entranced and I really, really want one *now* so I can take it travelling with me to annoy N with whilst I learn how to make pretty sounds.

Funny reading the conversation between yourself and autumnheart. Having lived at Mooney Mooney twice and Berowra for 7 years, and commuting to work in Leichhardt, I consider Meadowbank to be virtually inner city :) When I finished up at that job we ended up buying a house in the same bloody street in Leichhardt...
