The Oracle snarls...
He seems to be on a different planwet to the rest of us, as here on planwet earth at The Channon, the heavens have opened up with mighty force. Walking does not seem like the most appropriate activity to fill the day. However we silently acquiesce, the Oracle snarls, but we trudge up the flooded dirt road to Protestors' Falls for 30 mins. Only to find guess what? The boom gate is closed, and we are unable to walk. Damn says Queen Daisy.
Meanwhile in the Glamlux, Bigfoot is making predications as to our height above sea level based on the speed that the water is torrenting down the road. Princess Tabitha is having difficulty with this concept and a discussion ensues, only to have the complete theory blown apart by No dillidalli at the top of the hill with the fastest torrent running.
Its now story time in the subie, and Queen Daisy is feeling a sense of dejavu. We all enthusiastically support the idea to go hunting for ferals in Nim-Bin. Of particular interest is the boy with the volcanic ear which tested her diagnostic skills 20 years ago. The mother had been pouring onion juice and ginger into the poor little blighters ear for 6 months, and wondered through her purple haze why this had not fixed her son. "Its a natural antibiotic don't you know Doc? Doc (Queen Daisy), promptly syringed said ear, prescribed some unnatural antibiotics and anti fungals (due to the onion), and suprise surprise the boy could hear again. To this day, she is unsure whether she successfully was able to stem the black ooze or whether it has provided the bitumen for the road infrastructure in rainbow country.
We all rendezvous in Nimbin and The Oracle races off to secure a pair of Nimbin tie dye Pants. She tries to persuade the cast that a pair of said pants are indispensable in ones latter years. Meanwhile Nanny Tanny purchases some nice new cups and a teabag holder from the local gallery.We are driven into the arms of the Nimbin local for a bevvie by the driving rain.
|Feral Hunting in Nim-Bin|
On arriving home No Dillidalli (with of course no dilly-dallying) has the fire blazing. However there has been uncharacteristic dillydallying over the supply o Margaritas.
On the menu tonight is Greek egg and lemon soup, BBQ lamb leg and a big fat Greek Salad and Eton Mess for dessert. The cast were very satisfied.
