Sometimes I do some really dumb things. I had to go to Preston Market. I have friends coming over for dinner tomorrow and wanted the homemade pasta they sell (I won’t eat other pasta now because it’s totally inferior). Normally I avoid the market on Saturdays because it’s a madhouse but couldn’t make it earlier in the week so I got up at 7.00 planning to be there before everyone else except everyone had the same idea and there was no parking at all. Finally I got a park and went to the pasta stall.
Last night, before I went out, I took all the money out of my purse except enough for a drink and I’d forgotten to put it back!!@! Oh noes! I went back home and got back in bed.
I ended up going back this arvo and it truly is like an insane asylum. But fun, if you’re in the right mood. I got heaps of vegies for next to nix – including 2 big bags of grapes for $1. I’ve soaked a huge container of grapes in Cointreau ready for dessert… yummo. I also got masses of capsicums so think I’ll roast them to make the pasta sauce.
I got everything I needed for dinner, including wine, 750 g of homemade gnocchi and a tub of really good shaved parmesan for under $20. That is super cheap and makes me happy. Then I got a $4.90 box of little cakes too (for now, not for dinner).
The band last night were tops. The night before had been a sell out show so we went on the right night. Plus we got there just before the band come on. I’m too old now to wait around watching support bands and I find since I don’t drink that much any more I get extremely irritated by drunken crowds with all the pushing and jostling.
We had this one guy with the world’s biggest head standing in front of us. He kept going to the bar then pushing back to the same spot. Oh and doing this stupid dance/sway move so no matter where you stood, his head was in the way. That shit bugs me – if you want to keep going to the bar all night, stand near the bar not in the 2nd row. Other than that though, everything was good.
