So – today was my birthday. After treating myself to a Girls’ Generation trinket, I went on a blind date, watched some kids’ circus, wept uncontrollable tears of joy as a response to my favourite acrobats, studied for the afterlife, bailed on a show (due to poor scheduling on my part, and a running late/long knockout combo that – in hindsight – needn’t have mattered), watched a bizarre Benetton ad, partook in the latest Australian Eurowision Song Contest, and then wrapped things up with the world premiere of…

Still, the gaping hole in the evening’s schedule facilitated a nice favour for a good friend, and a bizarre re-meeting with Helen – who just happened to be sitting within one seat of me for the second night in a row. Adelaide!
