Bris Brick’s Lego Exhibition & Roving Conspiracy
Bris Bricks Lego Exhibition
Today is a public holiday here in Queensland, so I slept in, and then Bronwen and I drove to Bris Brick’s Lego Exhibition out at the Sleeman Sports Complex in Chandler, which was actually quite cool. There was lots of Lego.
Just after it got dark we drove to “Roving Conspiracy - music, art, politics, and homemade chai”, a semi-political (the local Greens member seems to have been involved in setting it up) gathering of people, with a few cool bands—all in someone’s backyard.
Tuesday 7th October
I had a quiet day at home. I’m not working at the moment. I do have a lot of things I should be doing, but I didn’t really do any of them today.
I drove to ALDI, where I met Bronwen on her way home from climbing. We picked up Domino’s pizza for dinner on the way home.
Wednesday 8th October
I had a quiet day at home. I could get used to this!
I drove into Rosalie with Bronwen, meeting Maz at Sing’s, where we had dinner. After dinner we walked to the nearby park and tried taking photos of the lunar eclipse, but it was very cloudy.
Thursday 9th October
I had a quiet day at home.
Friday 10th October
Bronwen worked. I, having no work and trying to catch up on all the things I didn’t get time to do when I did have work, stayed at home.
I drove into West End and had a wander through “The Last Big Picnic”—a picnic organised in Musgrave Park partially to protest the proposed introduction of new council laws which could restrict such gatherings in the future. Unfortunately Bronwen had gone out with friends so I was all alone and didn’t feel like butting in on any of the groups of people there so I didn’t stay.
Instead I continued on into the city and had a look at the Diwali celebrations happening in Brisbane Square, before picking Bronwen up and driving home.
