People we’re trying to make a useful listing here.

If you have no events to add I’ll ask you to pipe down in future.

Thanks.

What a huge weekend I have. Grubbing up serrated tussock (using an adze, and a wrecking bar), and craftily re-planting with Phalaris and lime and fertilizer. Oh goody. Half of it will be in rain (hopefully). My hat has a hole so it will be just ultra fun. The glamorous life.

I’ve heard that the bladder and eyeballs are particularly good.

I am swimming in offers for Viagra and Nigerian scams.

Swimming in Viagra is one thing, but swimming in scheming Nigerians I could probably live without.

/me wanders off to the offal thread …

Man I wish I could go – paying or otherwise – been ages since I have been to the muse – but im tied up (Literally or otherwise) tonight 🙁

Tied up, hey? Just remember: kinky is with a feather; perverted is with the whole chook.

I think Overheard is enjoying himself a little too much …

Nah, it’s just a natural aversion to Google-able personal details. As mentioned elsewhere, I pay the price for having an email address on a performers’ directory. I am swimming in offers for Viagra and Nigerian scams.

Anyhoo, I can’t give these tickets away today. Noone took me up on the offer earlier, so if anyone else out there would like two freebies to the Merry Muse, Turner to see some extremely good musicians: Craig and Simone Dawson, Karen Lynne and band who are being joined tonight by National Folk Festival president John Taylor on double bass and (stop press) local fiddle legend Donal Baylor, call me now. I turn into a pumpkin at about 6.30pm and they’ll be getting into their sound checks and what have you.

Going, going, going…

Overheard in Balmain (with a lovely water-view — 5.36pm and still in short sleeves)

It comes from living with offal …

*hehe*

… I’m more concerned about Danman being literally tied up tonight, but each to their own. I must say I would have expected him to be happier about it all, though.

ALERT! FREE STUFF! “* Friday: Blue Mountain Bluegrass plus Craig and Simone Dawson at the Merry Muse, Turner. http://www.merrymuse.org.au

* I’ve got some free tix to give away to these two shows on Artsound FM (92.7/90.3 T’nong) on Friday morning between 7-9am.”
