Two items you can't be found with on your person if searched are, a reptile, a skateboard.
I always carry a random reptile in my rucksack

Thats what I'm hoping for, G20 chaos and being stranded on this side If I make it to Bris I have to survive traffic chaos and make the Gold Coast Friday, then night shifts for the next four G20 fueled nights

Would that be a BB replica or a magically versatile broomstick?

We arrived in Brisbane yesterday and ventured into the CBD and walked over the bridge to Southbank. Walked all around the parklands etc and apart from some security fencing along some streets, we were able to go where we wanted. I guess that will change during the next few days.

Flying back in, early morning, the huge red fireball in the sky from the plane window, absolute feeling of dread....

Raining and warm, still swimming weather. Traffic seems to be moving quite well and helicopters are permanently circling the city and Southbank. Lots of motorcades for the kids to get excited by and try and guess who's inside. It's fun in Brisvegas right now.
