‘90s Aquarium Beach Party @ A Bar Called Barry.
To celebrate Aqua coming to Oz, A Bar Called Barry hosted a ’90s-themed Aquarium beach party where you could win tickets to Aqua’s shows by finding bits of dismembered “Barbie Girl”. We didn’t find any rogue pieces of “Polyester Girl”, but luckily we already have tickets.
We all decided to go in costume, which originally consisted of playsuits and floaties, which April and Michelle stayed true to. However, when I went to try on my $10 playsuit from Sportsgirl, it was supremely unflattering, so I decided I wasn’t going to go in costume. Then, when I was returning some books to the City Library in Flinders Lane, I decided to pop into Retrostar Vintage Clothing to see if they had any cheap playsuits or old school swimsuits. I did manage to find some vintage shorts for not-so-cheap, but I thought they were fabulous and just had to have them. While I’ll probably never wear them to anything but a costume party, I just love them! So my costume strayed a little bit from the colourful playsuit model we originally agreed upon, but retro is a bit more my style anyway.

’90s beach fun!
On the train on the way there some guy approached me and said, “I’m going to out-gay myself here, but you should really keep that Dita Von Teese look you’ve got going on.” We replied by saying we thought he was going to ask us for money! Thanks for the compliment, though, random guy.

I went to see J. Edgar on cheapo Monday at Nova, and while I quite enjoyed the movie, I did fall asleep in it… twice! Oops!
The rogue chilli plant.
So this is what happens when you neglect your garden? Maybe I shouldn’t tend to my hydrangeas for six months and they’ll be thriving, too?!
