The first pic of the jumper around the pole was (still is) in Shenton Park. I stared at it for several minutes. Dadaist outrage? Witty visual pun? Drunken fumbling? Student prank? Manifestation of madness? I was reaching a tentative conclusion when a Wembley police station car drove by and gave me a toot to move long.
The jumper has a – how shall we say – unfortunate pattern. Is it as bad as airport carpet, do you think? I hate to mention airport carpet, because I am ashamed – even outraged – that Perth’s airport carpet does not feature on the slowly spinning globe on this wonderful site. Why can’t we let the rest of the world know? Sydney and Canberra are on there, for pity’s sake. I say this: I will post a choice literary gem to the TWOPer who gets Perth on that map.
The second pic is a sofa for sale at Freedom: the ad was in yesterday’s West. I’m sure they’ve made an error with the price and it is really $14.99. It made my eyes bleed, and that is never good for a marsanne hangover.
