So, yesterday, on the hottest day in Sydney in 70 years or something ridiculous I popped my Field Day cherry. 45 degree heat didn't stop me from having a great time.
We got there at about 1:30 and promptly bought ourselves big fuck-off bottles of water. Found Cathy and a group of her boyfriend's friend's and parked our asses on the grass in the shade. It was a great spot, we had a perfect view of the main stage without having to leave the shade. We ate lots of calipoes, took many trips to the "mist tunnel" and got very munted and stayed that way aaaaaall day (I think that's mainly what helped us deal with the heat, how I don't know).
It was great having Cath there as well as Beth and everyone, good mix of groups and everyone mingled well. The southerly change came through as Bob Sinclar was playing and you could hear sighs of relief in the crowd as the massive gusts of wind came over. Unfortunately the wind caused one of the tents to blow over which meant Krafty Kuts played the main stage to close. Then in a very weird/confusing ending they had Kiss come out on stage and play "I was made for loving you"... The thing is, no one knows if it really was them or not. In our smashed state we spent ages discussing whether or not it actually was Kiss or a cover band. I still can't work it out. Way to confuse a whole lot of smashed people Fuzzy!
Anyway, after it ended I went on with Cathy and Cam to various friends places chatting, drinking beer and listening to music. At some random people's house in Bondi they played Phoenix on their stereo which made me happy. I got home at about 6am and surprisingly slept until about 11. The rest of the day has been taken up with watching Will & Grace on Arena and just generally mooching around the house.
P.S. I took some photos at Field Day... here are some highlights
