Last night I went to the Crusty Demons with my three boyfriends and every bogan who lives in the Canberra Region. Please note my three boyfriends are not bogans.
There was a little Extreme Crocheting done while waiting for the show to start. I think we all appreciated the gentle irony of crocheting at a misogynistic, drunken, loutish event.
I personally struggled with the idea of being at such an event given my hatred of Summernats. However I gave it some thought (while the Crusty Babes were gyrating their hips in front of me) and I think it has something to do with the artistry of making a motorbike do flips and the rider not landing on their head. They are clever boys, those Crusty Demons, and seriously beautiful to watch. I've always been a big fan, so seeing them fly through the air and not kill themselves was a special thing indeed.
Did see one poor fella land on his head not once, but twice. But I think it just wasn't his night.
Today was a lovely slow day. We finally got to Revolve's Better Bits at Piallago and it was just fantastic. So much Pyrex to be had, although I decided to be fussy. I probably shouldn't have bothered with the Snowflake casserole, but I was taken with the handle shape. The pie plate I just had to have - because four pie plates were never going to be enough. And the June Rose platter was my dream. I've always wanted a bigger Pyrex platter for taking cucumber sandwiches to parties but I figured only JAJ Pyrex (British) would provide it and I was right in this case.
And I dropped my entries off for the show. I'm not too sure how they will do as some of the entries I saw looked to be from the 70s era. Canary yellow poncho in acrylic, anyone? It'll probably win best of show.
