A note of art

Something that was handed to me the other day as some change really made me laugh.  It wasn’t until I went to go and spend it I realised someone had been having some fun with the queens face on the $5 aussie bank note.

Obviously very bored and probably in a pub with their mates, they had scratched off the poor queens eyebrows, eye’s and top lip and and pencilled in what made her look like a right angry old cow!

Well it made me laugh and I’m reluctant to spend it now as it makes me chuckle every time I see it 🙂 I think mum used to always say to me ‘little things please little minds’, she’s right.

Mardi Gras 2010 Video

27th Feb was the date for this years Sydney Mardi Gras parade, one of the worlds most famous street parties. Our new place in the city has 2 bedrooms that back right onto Oxford St and being 3 levels up was a perfect place to watch the parade from. 18 friends came over to join us for some food and drinks and to watch the parade from the bedroom windows and we all had a good time.

Here is a 10 minute collection of some of the best bits I filmed of the parade. Enjoy the madcap craziness of the Sydney Mardi Gras as the infamous ‘Team leader’ controls the crowds with her takedown shouting Megaphone skills, you’ll see what I mean:

One person that loved watching the whole parade was little Basima before she fell asleep on the ‘Lovesac’, I couldn’t think of a more comfortable place to sleep:
