Conscious that I sometimes share material on other platforms that never makes “the cut” here on my blog, here’s a few tweets, posts, and observations that still seem relevant from May. Lots of ephemera, but hopefully still quite entertaining.
May 9 : Catching a bus and noticing how grabbing a seat is like how men use urinals: you find the farthest possible distance away, and then when it gets too full, it gets awkward.
May 10 : Many fond memories of Barons in Sydney, where until the mid 00s, you could drink after a serve of garlic bread. Also, back at The Terminus in Brisbane during the 80s. @kagij Pubs will in effect be treated like restaurants. People can have a drink but only with a meal. Seated dining only, max 20 people (and must adhere for four square metre rule)
May 15 : Loving these live performances from @nannegronvall (and Peter). https://facebook.com/nannegronvall/videos/2634884613466101/… Slightly crazy at times. Peter admitted this week, after Eurovision, they supported The Smurfs at a gig.
May 26 : Flu Shot : After a few weeks my local pharmacy was stocked up, and ready for “walk ins”. Only downside was having to wait in store for 15 minutes afterwards in case there were side-effects. Bought lots of things I didn’t need. And, getting shirtless with flabby old arms!
May 27 : Feeling ashamed I’ve never visited NZ, even though it’s so close, and even though I previously had a partner originally from there. Some friends have described NZ as a “back-pocket holiday destination”, when you can’t afford somewhere else. The time is now.
