Sunny Weekend

Crazy busy weekend. The weather was just perfect: mid-20s and lotsa sun. Perfect for drinking cold white wine in the sunshine. Saturday I went to Linden in St Kilda to see the annual postcard competition entrants. I knew a couple of hopefuls so that added to the excitement. Lots of amazing work. I wanted to buy two tiny little landscape paintings for $90 but everyone gave me shit so I didn't. I'm broke anyways.
Insanity ensued that evening. Went to a party at Poonstance's and was having a gay old time until I realised I'd locked my keys in the car. Twas a great way too meet some Brunswick locals and generate a community event as friends and strangers alike tore my car apart in an attempt to reunite me with the keys.
Sunday we went to a Russian festival in Federation Square - I went for the advertised pancakes and was BITTERLY disappointed when we had to queue for ages to get a lousy pancake with a blob of cheap jam on top. Better then the ones JC and LTR got, though, which has meaty icicles inside. Yuk-o. But there were Russians in costume, Russians in BAD Eastern fashion and Russians in paper hats looking like wallies so that was all worthwhile.
Visited Z and Ot in the evening which was great... I'm in love with that child!
Today is an exciting day - I've become a seller on eBay! Shit scared. I really hope someone buys my lovely Sigma Zoom lens. If this works out I've got BOXES of crap I'll try to flog.

did kostya tszyu turn up? i think i'd have to say he's my favourite russian-australian! any other australians of russian descent that might rival him? i henceforth issue this as a challenge [mostly because i can't think of any others]...

HONEY! Kostya was the ONLY reason I went - he launched the festival... But I missed that bit, and although I DESPERATELY scanned the crowds for HOURS, I didn't see him. So sad.

As for other Russian-Australians - well, Kostya is a pretty hard act to follow. Zulya, that singer from Tartarstan is another I can think of. That's it.

Bummer! I wonder if that problem is affecting others... I can email some to you if you want. Needless to say they are both cute and well and Ot is smarter and sweeter everytime I see him!
