Lucas was painting this morning, and was doing a picture of Amy WInehouse, but had ran out of fluorescent pink paint, so I said I'd try and track some down for him today. I knew there was an Art shop off Chapel Street, and since I needed to go to Chapel Street anyway to collect my work clothes from last night, I went to that one. I spent ages looking round and pretending to be creative enough to buy things from there.
I then went into the CBD, and stopped off at the sushi place at Flinder's Street Station, which Amanda had said was good, to which I approved her complimentary review. I was trying to find the 'No Vacancy' art gallery, but the map I had on the Art and Culture leaflet wasn't that informative, so walked the wrong way up Little Lonsdale Street at first. I couldn't resist an Aztec Hot Chocolate from Chocolateria san Churro- the chain of cafes which sell churros I was so desperate to try when we went to Spain. It started raining whilst I was in the QV retail centre the gallery was supposed to be in, and so I decided to duck into the next building until it had passed... and it turned out to be the gallery. It said in the leaflet it mainly focused on street artists, but the exhibition that was on at the moment was showcasing graduate textile designer work, so that was quite good.
Opposite the gallery was a Japanese supermarket place, which I was intrigued to walk round- I assumed that everything was really expensive, and was annoyed nothing had prices, until I realised everything was $2.80.
In the evening, Valerie gathered about 10 of us to go to Cushion, which is where Flo works, to get $5 pizzas. Me and Alice both had vegetarian with pumpkin, feta and spinach, and I was surprised at how nice the pumpkin was for $5.
