MoB Workspace- Centre of the known universe

For the past week we have been in the middle of the Brisbane Festival with Gorbachev (he has his own website!) speaking in City Hall, Shakespearean scholars underfoot and the Spiegeltent parked out the front in King George Square between all the construction work. It is not unusual for Spiegeltents to be crammed into crowded European cities wherever they might fit - last year I saw one on a traffic island at the Brighton Festival- tres glam-r-us - BrisVegas has arrived. You can check out the Spiegeltent program here . My mum went last week and she said the earth moved for her during a performance of trombone players. I think she meant that she felt the vibrations coming from the busway tunnel being dug out underground, but you can never tell...

So far we have been way to busy to participate in any of the cultural activities, struggling with our new badgemaker, but we are planning a wednesday night at the free performance of Women in Docs .

Must have been the combined effect of the trombones, the tunnel drilling and the beer-not to mention all the mirrors. I'm not used to such excitement all in one day. Roy had to take me for a quiet walk at Southbank to recover.

mum- too many belgian mirrors, ale and horns can be strange and disturbing i know! I always find a trip to southbank a cruel but effective way to return to reality.
florence- it is only by our association with you that we have been allowed to become the centre of the universe or is the the blogiverse?
