My fun Saturday started off a bit strange - as I headed downstairs, my new neighbour, or my neighbour's guest - I don't know, there's always people and cars coming and going, squinted up to look at me. I said hi, asked her how she was, but she didn't answer. Instead she asked if I had a face mask on. I told her I was born this way, just like Lady Gaga (I didn't actually throw in the Gaga reference, but maybe I will next time someone asks...). She stood there laughing and staring, then when I told her no need to stare, she covered her mouth and scurried inside. No apology, just a series of nervous giggles. Weird.
I spent the day in Brunswick Street Fitzroy with my Mum - it was a really lovely day. But really hot too. By the end of the day, the heat was killing me, and all I could do was peel off my clothes and flop on the couch with a slurpee and the Saturday papers. Bliss.
We went to the Magic Lantern Studio - Mum was so enchanted by the artworks and toys. I loved the Ronald McDonald figurine trapped in an industrial whisk - like a hot air balloon, but a modern day gaol as Gonzalo called it.
We ate pho.
Trampoline - I had vanilla bean and lemon lime and bitters, and Mum had a summer fruits sorbet. And we went to the Rose Street artists market. If it wasn't so hot, and if I wasn't on my shopping ban, I could have browsed and spent money for hours. Such pretty things.
Speaking of pretty, here is my Mum eating pho.
And this is what I wore.
Outfit 28. You can't see it but I did double stripes - I also wore striped tights under my denim shorts. I walk a thin line - usually of grey and black, or black and white stripes. Hah! You will see I have a shopping bag draped over my wrist. Fear not. There are no clothes or accessories or CDs inside. Just some really expensive luxury shampoo and conditioner - it was needed though. Modern Organic Products sulphate free, from Klein's Perfumery, FYI. I washed and conditioned my hair with it tonight and it feels really really good. $56 for hair care. Because I'm worth it.
The dinner blog entry is coming soon. We went to a really good place...
Mum gave me a heap of fruit and veges from my parents' property - can't wait to cook tomorrow!
