Friday 8th April – Fat Picnic
I went for a walk up Mount Gravatt and found some fungus—aseroe rubra, commonly known as the anemone stinkhorn, sea anemone fungus or starfish fungus. It smelt like—and looked like it was covered in—poo.
I drove into West End and met Bronwen at the Boundary Street Markets where Fat Picnic were having their first show of the year. They were supported by Miel, and Jonathan Sri—the newly elected Greens councillor for the Gabba ward—had incorporated his campaign after-party into it and gave some speeches. It was a full house, and—apart from being significantly too hot inside—everyone seemed to have a good time.
We stopped off at the Story Bridge on the way home, which was lit as a rainbow for Youth Week.
