I was revelling in having a night at home with no plans and no work to get up for, but the school down the road has been having their Festival today (which I think some of the Wild St Church bods participated in during the day) and it seems to be culminating with fireworks and some huge bootscootin’ extravaganza that sounds as loud as the Big Day Out, though ever so slightly less alt/indie and more, well, bootscootin country. In Maroubra. I don’t really get it. I’m really not coping with this awful music. Whatever happened to a humble school fete with lamingtons and the like? I may have to go for a drive with my iPod just to escape.
