It’s been a time where I honestly don’t care about anything to do with atheism, skepticism, -isms of any kind and whether there’s fraught-ness and fighting – because I’ve been merrily busy!
Step one – empty out bag for cleaning.
Top centre – My pink converse shoes, which happened to match the scarf worn by Margaret Atwood – I think she was bemused. A hair decoration, black polka-dots. DVD of the documentary Festival Express, that I’ll be watching as a part of research for a radio class I’m doing.
Top right, sunglasses and my makeup/pencil-case/everything emergency case. As you can see, includes post-it stickers, band-aids, highlighter, lollipop, hand-sanitiser, birthday-cake-flavoured lip gloss and a few hairpins and a little bottle of Nina Ricci.
Tickets for the rest of the weekend’s lectures for the Perth Writers’ Festival; purse and signed copies of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and The Blind Assassin. iPod with pink headbuds and bag. You can also see one of my recording devices – it’s a Sony ICD-UX300F.
Programs! The Perth Writers Festival and the Fringe World Festival, and a flyer from the Fringe Festival show I saw, called Kaput. And a bottle of water that I picked up while running around the UWA Open Day:
The wonderful UWA Atheists and Skeptics society, starting off 2013!
Here’s their board advertising forthcoming events, including the Sean Faircloth tour:
In addition, the first UWA Atheists and Skeptics barbecue for 2013 is being held on March 5th, at Matilda Bay -
Finally – here’s China Miéville and Margaret Atwood on stage!
…And yet another shot of my shoes.
Speaking of talks – there’s an interesting Slate article on Jared Diamond, who I’ll be seeing present this weekend. If you’re around the festival, see you there!
