Nothing like a biosolid necklace to make you feel better

Margaret Domurad proudly wears the treatment plant productI’ve been feeling poorly over the last 24 hours. Vomiting. And I never vomit. In fact I reckon you can divide the world into vomiters and non-vomiters. Vomiting is much more stressful for a non-vomiter. Such a shock to the system.

Anyway, it’s all been a bit bleah.

Luckily I live with Groover who cheered me up with a little article from “Flowing Forward” produced by the Water Corporation‘s Communication Division.

Margaret Domurad (pictured) is wearing shit. Yes. Literally.

She collected some “biosolids” – that’s Water Corp speak for poo – and crystalised them at about 1400 degrees centigrade. She then asked a friend to make them into a necklace. Apparently it doesn’t smell.

I can’t see it taking off though. Not in a big way.

Hardly the most lovely of topics but I agree with you about the world being divided up into those who do and those who don’t. I do. In fact, I’m a stress-vomitter. At key periods of my life where it’s all been too much, such as when my mum was close to dying, I pewk. Yoko Ono has a song called “She Gets Down On Her Knees To Throw Up Life” which I think sums it up well. Anyway, I hope you won’t be pewking in Sydney next week, because it’s such a non-Sydney thing to do!

What possesses someone to try something like that?????

Hope you’re better soon. Not much fun at all.

Well I guess that’s one way to recycle your waste……….
I’m not a vomiter either, hope you’re better by the time you read this.

Wearing poo (dried up or not) is enough to make me vomit. Hope you’re feeling better.
