Things I did on the weekend:
Tried out my sister’s new couch, which was altogether way too comfy.
Observed a truck pulling a trailer along the road with its indicators wired up wrong. The truck would indicate left as its trailer would indicate right. Very confusing.
Bought a book on a whim. I used to love The Daily Show when it was on SBS, so when I spotted this book from them I snapped it up. Especially since it was at the Sun bookshop in Yarraville, and the last time I spotted something good there, I failed to buy it, and someone came past a few days later and bought it before me, leaving me searching all over Melbourne to find another copy. Anyway it’s pretty damn funny.
Went into a church for about the first time in probably about five years.
Pondered the priest’s bad jokes, and how he had to do a better marketing job if he had any hope of expanding his congregation from the very occasional visitors present, many of whom probably only ever go into churches on the occasions of christenings, marriages and funerals.
Met a man called Lobster…
…at a post-christening barbecue where they didn’t serve lobster, but they did serve Lobster
Was asked something out of left field by a complete stranger. Managed not to say “mind your fecking business.”
Imparted the following advice to an occasional train traveller: Watergardens is the same as Sydenham. So good they named it twice.
