Happy Friday, going to have dinner with Fuller and Mr. Fuller, then a rum and tonic or 12 with my sister. If she has enough, maybe we can dress up one of her kids in an ill-fitting/inappropriate costume, yay!

I read this very interesting article from a chick who went undercover to The Gathering, the Insane Clown Posse’s annual rape foam party music festival and lived to tell the tale.

It fascinated/disturbed me (translation: I LOVED it)  and so I went on to read this article  from the Village Voice, another view from inside The Gathering.

There are lots of things that amaze me about these peeps…  that this show is allowed to happen year after year,  that females willingly take part in this…but most of all I want to know how all these flabby white kids from the Midwest found each other. I blame MySpace.

For the record, I’m torn. I don’t condone misogyny. But I DO condone this:

sad Leprechaun

I wonder what Australia’s answer to American juggalo culture is. I wonder if there is some thriving subculture of angry suburban outcasts that I don’t know about. If they do exist, I can guarantee they dress better. (Australians are just more stylish, it’s  a true science fact). Going to make it my personal mish to find out. Will let you know.

Nick and I took the ferry up to Manly yesterday, and ate a new-ish restaurant, called Whitewater.

It was all a bit fancy for Sunday lunch, but we decided to spoil ourselves, seeing as how we’ve both been putting in crazy hours at work over the last week. I haven’t worked that much since Interskate91 was child-labouring the shit out of me.

(Side note: Dear God, looking at that website is like time traveling. Nothing’s changed since 1998. Even the clip art images are the same ones they used to plaster all over their backroom signage: “If you have time to LEAN, you have time to CLEAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

ANYWAYS. Lunch was good, if a bit underwhelming. The food was actually very good, and my Bloody Mary was like a 7/10 which is way better than average around here.

But our waiter was a total dud, to the point that it was distracting. I was obsessed with the thought that he was going out back to huff airplane glue in between each interaction with us. And he was American, which was extra humiliating, as I’m always banging on about how much superior American service standards are. It’s HIS fault my $30 chicken burger tasted like vague dissatisfaction.
