Radelaide Cabaret Festival: a brief debrief

Fiona O’Loughlin told me many, many moons ago that her family understood that the first couple of days after she got back home from a festival, she wasn’t really BACK. Night 1: almost certainly take-away.

Oh how I get it.

As such, just a quick (and mostly pictorial) debrief from my most excellent time in Adelaide.

I went with the goal of testing the waters with the show, getting some photos and if I managed to score some nice quotes to pull out of any reviews, that would be all the sweeter. Like the double dip on an already awesome Tim-Tam.

Mission accomplished. Topped off with some fabbo vintage browsing, market trawling and defeating the headcold that kept threatening to spoil the whole damn thing…KAPOW! It’s enough to make me want to serenade the whole damn city of Adelaide itself, with “Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love For You.” (Note to self: file that one away. Could be good publicity.)

Anyhoo, I returned to my beautiful and suitably happy to see my clan. My boys promptly returned to their default setting of ‘caffeine jitters without the caffeine’ while my daughter took all of 5 minutes to unpack my new wig and make it her own.

Ah. Yes.

I am almost back.

Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival: Episode 2

Wow. Just, wow. Had such a beautiful time tonight, I really wanna write more when it’s not almost 2 in the morning and I am not still crazy and buzzing. But in short, lovely crowd, I enjoyed myself hugely and I think it went pretty well. Will have photos soon too so will pop someContinue Reading

Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival: day 1

I am here! Yes! In Adelaide! This is nothing short of a miracle as this time yesterday, it looked likely that flights would be canceled thanks to a certain volcano that just couldn’t contain itself for a few more centuries. Bloody volcanoes. Can’t live with em, can’t live without em..actually hang on a second, actuallyContinue Reading

The Good, the Bad and the Good (and the Bad)

THE GOOD: Loving my iPhone. Just worked out how to upload pics to twitter. This excites me. I am excitable by simple things. THE BAD: Our bank balance. THE GOOD: Picked up my dress last night and it is so adorable I want to hold it by a fire. But not too close. That thingContinue Reading
