I am guiltily posting this, as I meant to go tonight and didn't. It was pouring with rain. My bike seat and helmet were soaked. I will go check it out on Saturday. The new Sunshine and Grease. And a new gallery. This is the first show. It's all good news. Go say hi to Pat. Hi Pat.

Speaking of backyard, Andrea and I dropped in to see The Wild Chorus, new works from Tai Snaith at Helen Gory Galerie. The first show in the new space and a peek in the open backyard made me wish I'd got across town the day before for the opening. I am a fellow colour coder / magpie, and it is all pretty pleasing to ponder.
Instead I finished work and headed down towards Smith St to pick up my bike, where I found a crisp fifty blowing on the road. I hesitated, picked it up, waved it around in an awkward 'look I have a pineapple!' manner, but no-one was claiming it, no one was around. A girl on her bike rode by and called 'it's your lucky day!'
By the time I got across the street, Kate called and she was just behind me, probably wondering why I was dithering and standing around looking confused. She's the perfect person to share a pineapple with, fruit or currency. We decided it was an auspicious moment to go and drink some beers on the road. Free road beers taste better. We did give thanks to the pineapple, also to the road.
