09:20 am - Oh yeah, that other shiny thing I made
Last night I made pasta with a tomato and courgette sauce/base thing - like, from scratch, without buying one of those jobbies in jars. Nothing unusual in that, right? But apart from the mushrooms and a capsicum, everything else in it was from our own garden. Including the herbs.
I am inordinately pleased about this. Also, I see a lot of tomato-eating in our future. And possibly salsa-making. And sundried-tomato-doing. Although, I've no idea how to do that. Preserving? Eep!
Taken by the very talented Pete Jennings, whose Kiwiburn photoset on Flickr is the best I've seen so far. He's done a fantastic job of capturing the spirit of the event, so if you're wondering what Kiwiburn looks like, please go have a look. And at the top of page 4, there's a nice pic of the Sensorium (Dr Wheel's art project).
I was wearing all black in that pic, deliberately. However, this has highlighted that it makes me look like a floating skirt (or a jellyfish, depending on your state of perception). So I've had another brainfart, which involves adding a hairpiece with illumination, just to balance it a bit and demonstrate that yes, I do have a head.
*more soldering yay*
Yes, the Brainfart is supposedly now called the Hypnotutu. Because that's at least a little bit descriptive, right? It's going to get another outing in about a month's time, and this time I'll deliberately ask someone to take some video footage, because it's shiny! And ever-changing! Apparently this makes it difficult to photograph...
Tomorrow I have to shear sheep. Polwarths, even. Wheeeeee, back to reality. Oh wait, I have a picture of a fluoro orange monster sitting on a purple fluffy unicorn (photo by Kylee Bowater) on my desktop.
As you were...
