So, after La Semence was cancelled (a shame, I was really looking forward to that), today (20040220) also had a few other curious tidbits:
I couldn’t believe how many people treat the alphabet as some strange foreign collection of characters. Whilst waiting for Dave Hughes to start, people were scurrying all over the Scott Theatre: “Where’s Q? I can see P, but where’s Q?”
Then there was my little Scaredies incident. I was really looking forward to the Scaredies too, though I’m not exactly unhappy having seen the wonderful BritCom…edy. I just found it a little odd that…
- having lived in Adelaide for 17 years, I couldn’t tell the Arts & the Royalty apart;
- after 4 Festivals, I couldn’t tell the Arts & the Royalty apart; and…
- after 33 years, I couldn’t tell “left” and “right” apart. Even with the aid of my thumb & index finger.
Meh. I guess the real fun comes with trying to squeeze the Scaredies back into my schedule :}
