Outrage Sunday 43 pancakes

Tasteful colour, vibrant font – the only fly in the batter with this Guildford Road sign is few will see it as they concentrate on coping with the James Street bridge.

This gourmet feast was suddenly abandoned in Guildford. Por quoi? Diners were terrified by Daleks emerging from the nearby rose bushes.

While in Claremont someone invented a new cocktail in the Gugeri Street carpark. My sources tell me it’s already known as Outrage Spume at the little-known and hard to pronounce but wildly popular small bar in Claremont Quarter called Le Ultieme Hallucinatie.

And finally: if you need a laugh (and, frankly, who doesn’t in these troubled Kevinating times?) read JustLuxe’s take on WA. JustLuxe is an Affluent Lifestyle Guide. Sample words: “The host of the 1987 World Cup, Fremantle is as quaint as Perth is modern. The Roadhouse, Western Australia’s oldest building (dating back from the 1830’s) is located here.” And: “The Nambung National Park has many things to see including the Pinnacles. These natural limestone outcroppings challenge Aires’s Rock for the reputation as Australia’s eeriest spot.” Not forgetting: “Luxury is, after all, about access to fine and rare things and Western Australia’s Gondwanaland has both in abundance.” No mention of the pancakes – an outrage.

      The best advice I ever received as a teenage hitchhiker surviving on outback roadhouse fare was to only ever order toasted sangers, ensuring that they’d at least be prepared in the current century. Listen up, youngsters.

    luxury is after all, about complete and utter ignorance of life outside the gilded suburbs, particularly ignorance of spelling.

      I also liked the article on the unique winter sport in New England, which turned out to be dog-sledding a rail trail in central New Hampshire.

      Holy fuckbiscuits, if that doesn’t scream luxury, nothing does.

    Claremont, where the empties outside subway are always Cuvee. Which reminds me TLA, what about that last Claremont shot I sent you? Guess I’ll have to go back to making fun of Kwinarnians then.

    Jen certainly has a way with words, DFOC. I particularly like the revolving dolphin discovery center, the shark infested blubber laden whale filled waters of King George Sound, the grain filled heart of Western Australia in Merridin, and whatever the many things to see in Nambung National Park, other than the meh Pinnacles, might be. And it looks like they’ve had substantial rain in Exmouth. I’m off to charter a private jet.

    There’s another ‘pancakes’ sign on the alfresco guildford hotel pointing south down Johnson Rd. Are hungry pancake afficianados forever doomed to traipsing back and forth And never getting to eat at Alfreds?

    The roadhouse. Heh.
    Reminds me of a boat ad I saw this week that claimed “The owner has maintained it maliciously”.
    Which of course made me think, given the boat was in QLD that it was Kev’s.
