Welcome to the last day of Summer

A question for the Brisbane people in the audience. Is it my imagination, or has this summer been no where near as hot as previous summers?

Anyway, Mardi Gras this weekend. I'm taking Friday and Monday off work, flying down at some ungodly hour of the morning and landing in Sydney at 8:30am. Then I'm in non_lj_mark's hands until I leave at 8:00pm Monday night. As far as I am aware, Mark is marching, so I guess that means that I will be too. Should be interesting.

when you end up in Melbourne, get used to summer not ending until the end of March :)

I've been to Conquests in March, so I'm very well aware of that. :)

However, I've also been to Conquests in April and as a result I am well aware of the fact that Winter can start in April at times!

You crazy gay people can't get your dates right. Mardi Gras was a week ago! :P

Well, technically Mardi Gras started a month ago, and the parade is the end of it.

We make our parties last a month! :)

I think we stole your hot weather, it has been a absolute stinker down here this summer. Worse, it's been that muggy hot, not the usual dry hot we get down here.

Have fun! Don't do anything I wouldn't do..... I'll leave it up to you to decide exaclty how limiting that is..... :oP

I found it to be fairly cool in Melbourne when we were down for Arc. Did we manage to miss the hot weather?

Yep. Got one of the two or three good weeks we've had. :oP

As completely and utterly disgustingly humid as it is at the moment, I have to agree with you - this is one of the mildest summers of the past few years. (It is, however, still hot enough that napping in the cold room at work has become a viable, and indeed desirable passtime.)
As for Mardi Gras, I hope you're planning to take a lot of pictures. :)

Well, I did last year. :)

FYI: All my photos from last year are at http://pics.livejournal.com/halloranelder/gallery/0000tg90?.view=grid

They are fairly poor in quality, but we were a fair distance from the action and as a result I had to zoom in a lot. The slightest bit of movement and everything was blurry.

Oh yeah. That marching thing. Better get onto that.

Btw, do you own any leather?

I own the collar I wore last year and a leather jacket. At least, I think the jacket is real leather, going to have to check.

Perhaps we need to go do some shopping before the parade? :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
