Today, I finally went out with some of the people in my class again; I hadn’t really hung out with them outside of school for most of the year, because everytime there was an opportunity I was usually with BRuCE.
The ones who were there were Jen (aka “My Property”), April, Sonam, Tiff, Bel and me.
We all met up under the clock – Jen took it literally and sat EXACTLY under the clock – and Bel was late. When she arrived we went for an early lunch at Nando’s (despite April being vegetarian and saying she wasn’t hungry. I decided to take “I’m not hungry” as “I am hungry” and “I’m hungry” as “I’m REALLY hungry”). We got 2 chickens and 2 “seriously large” chips and April got a vege pita (which I forgot to order at first). In the end Tiff and Sonam let the team down and didn’t eat much, so there was about a quarter of a chicken left and Bel said she’d eat it but she ate slowly, so we’d have to wait. Then, she suggested that she could eat faster if while she was still finishing her 2nd last piece of chicken, both Tiff and Sonam cut the last quarter up into bite-sized pieces. So they did. But then Bel said that she had a habit of having a ratio of 1:1, chips and chicken. So she’d have to cut up her chips and eat it with the bite-sized chicken. Jen then proceeded to cut up the chips into tiny little bite-sized pieces, and with the other fork I stabbed together some chicken and chips and tried to feed Bel, aeroplane style, but she wouldn’t let me. There were 4 girls who sat down next to us when I’d gone to order April’s pita, about 5 minutes after our food had arrived (I’d forgotten to do it in the initial order) and they were finished 10 minutes before we did.
So, yeah, we ate slowly, and I wonder what would’ve happened if Vania had been there (hey Vania, how DID you piss off your mom?).
After Nando’s we went to Strike Bowling (hooray for black light, so that all the white we wore glowed!) and we all used pseudonyms except for April, who was April. So Tiff was A.I., Sonam Tsunami, Jen E.T., I took Lex Luthor (ha) and Bel was “PURE AWESOMENESS”.
I suck at bowling! I really need to go a few more times with different people so that I can be a decent competitor. Even with gutter guards I sucked baaaaaad! Pure A won, and April beat Tsunami by two points.
And it wasn’t too expensive either, which was a bonus.
During bowling, the venue played a few songs, and of course Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” came on. I started singing loudly to it, and some guys in the next lane started singing as well. Then, one of them got a strike and yelled “YEEEEAHHH!” in a manly grunt, Leyton Hewitt style, and I promised that if I did something really awesome, I’d grunt yell as well. Well I never did get an awesome shot after my initial strike, so I guess I didn’t. I still yelled a lot, though. Like whenever it was Bel’s turn, I would scream “PURE AWESOMENESS!” Kung Fu Panda style.
After bowling, where Jen’s top half was fluro blue, we decided to go to Bel’s place to play Singstar. Sonam and Tiff left early, and so did April to go work. The three of us remaining went to Bel’s very bachelor-like place, and we played a few songs but Jen had a sore throat and was screeching a bit (screeching in tune, but still screeching) and Bel managed to ace the game mumbling the whole thing off.
I was late going home (and on the tram back to Flinders Jen tried to play the travelling game on me, where she’d lick her finger and wipe it on my face) and mom wasn’t happy. We ate out, because dad is at an office party, and as we were leaving the carpark a dickhead blocked the way trying to get a parking spot, and mom beeped him. She shouted “this is a traffic area!” which it was, seeing as it was at the turn, and he screamed back “this is parking!” which again, it kind of was as well. Then mom shouted at him to move but he just shouted back “merry Christmas!” in a sarcastic voice, which I thought was kind of stretching the useage of that remark a bit, seeing as we’ve just entered the Christmas week, mom half-shouted “You don’t have a merry Christmas”, and then finally the dickhead got out of the way.
It was hilarious.
I missed today’s How I Met Your Mother.
On Monday Jen organized for us to go to her place, because Julia would be back by then, and the party is in honor of her (was I not meant to say that?).
Carmaine left today.
And I am very tired.
De Fluffe, Out.
