the train absolutely packed with people sporting dozens of showbags each as well as preposterous hats, wigs, yoyos, magic wands, halos on wires and/or devil horns, bat wings, inflatable baseball bats/mallets and giant stuffed toys. all patrons, of course, of the Ekka, short for Exhibition, formally known as the Royal Brisbane Show. today! was show day, a public holiday, and of course.. I went to the show. it was relatively awesome. and I am absolutely tired.
