Melbourne shenanigans

Well, I started writing a post about all the things I did with my weekend in Melbourne about two hours ago. But it came out REALLY boring. And stupidly, even though I carted TWO cameras with me, I barely took any photos, so I can't rely on those to illustrate my point... *sigh* So I'm going with the bullet pointed version instead...
  • I navigated from the Hume to my parents' house without getting lost. Go me! A vast improvement on last time when I got us lost in the back blocks of Greensborough at 11pm. In the rain...
  • We saw Hairspray live on stage. It was awesome. I'm pretty sure I had a smile on my face for the whole two and a half hours. And that's damned rare for me...
  • The sets of Hairspray were intriguing - instead of the traditional wooden painted sets, they used big digital screens. It meant the pace of the show was much faster because you didn't have to wait for sets to change and props to be taken on and off the stage
  • Because Hairspray was a preview showing (the premiere was on Saturday night), the program was only $10. Bargain!
  • The Tim Burton exhibition is awesome. And features many many things touched/worn by Johnny Depp. Mmmmmm, Johnny Depp........... ;)
  • I do have to say though, Tim Burton is one epically weird dude. Throughout the whole exhibition, I was reminded of that Stephen King quote about having the heart of a small boy. In a jar on his desk...
  • I *may* have been to Salsa's twice *looks guilty* Mmmmmmm, burritos and Mexe-crinkle fries.......
  • I discovered that I still classify as a Melbournian - I can stand up on a tram in 10cm heels without holding onto anything and not fall over. WIN!
  • I went to a roof top bar that required walking up three thousand stairs (in 10cm heels - not fun) and featured a taxidermied ostrich wearing pearls. Weird...
  • The time at said roof top bar was spent consuming cider by the pint and catching up with old friends. Good times...
  • I got to see my BFF from kindergarten Char's new apartment, and cackle hysterically at the book she showed me - 101 Uses for a Bridesmaid's Dress. My personal favourite read "Wear it to jury duty. You'll be back at your desk in 10 minutes."
  • I had dinner at one of my all time favourite restaurants - Jazz Ria. And I ordered exactly the same thing I do every time I go there. And it was AWESOME...
  • I discovered that my dog now eats cat food (On the vet's advice, apparently). And that as a result, my dad has decided "The Dog Who Ate Cat Food" would be an excellent title for a childrens' book...
Basically, it was a great weekend. And I can't believe I don't get to do it all again until Christmas time. *sigh*

PS. A reality show's just started on TV following parking inspectors around. Who the hell would watch that crap??????????
