First and foremost, happy birthday April!
So to start my day from the start.
I went to sleep at just past midnight, so I texted April happy birthday while I was awake. Then, at around half past 1 when I’ve more or less drifted off to sleep, CJ called me. I think I said something along the lines of, “Oh I didn’t realize I gave you your own ringtone.” (I didn’t, I just didn’t recognise The Getaway Plan in my half asleep state). She asked, “Oh wow did I just wake you up? Did you fall asleep already?” I croaked, “Yes?” And she said, “Awww”. Then, as my house’s reception always fails me, she cut out. Sorry about that.
After that I couldn’t sleep for ages, and I thought about calling her back but it would’ve just cut out again.
Got up and had an early shower, and realized that I would miss Phineas and Ferb. Took the train to the city by myself and half fell asleep and of course, my head jerked. Felt like an idiot.
I was about 10 minutes early so I waited for a bit and April showed up, followed closely by Dani and Andrew (from this point on referred to as Wutinie unless on an individual basis). I didn’t know Dani was coming so I asked, “What are you doing here?” She said, “What do you mean what am I doing here what do you think I’m doing here?” Then I realized she was there for April’s thing.
Few moments later, Jen arrived, and we waited for a few more minutes thinking some more people were coming. Called Vania. She wasn’t. So. We went and walked to QV to have an early lunch.
I told them the joke about, if you were named Dwayne, you wouldn’t want to have the last name Pipe. Andrew ordered an ice coffee with whipped cream and licked up all the whipped cream, and decided he didn’t want the coffee. I asked him why he didn’t just order a glass of whipped cream. It got us onto the topic of how on American sitcoms whenever someone had a bad breakup they’d start crying and eating whipped cream straight from the can. Anyway, a while later, Andrew was talking about, yet again, the size of Carmaine’s eyes. He asked me, “What I don’t get is, I’m saying her eyes are so small but whenever she takes pictures she always opens her eyes really wide like this:” And he did the O.O face. I asked him what was wrong with that? He said he didn’t know, just wondered why she did it. So I decided to pass it along. Then I remembered Carmaine isn’t going to be here for a week. So I put it up here.
As we were eating, I shared my dish with Wutinie, and Andrew was trying to eat a piece of chicken whole, and kind of mumbled something along the lines of, “Dammit I have a huge bone in my mouth and it won’t come out!” I sniggered, “That’s what she said.” And unfortunately it took Wutinie a few shameful seconds to figure it out. Then again, it took April ’til about the end of lunch to start laughing.
April and I ate a piece of lemon that was in my very sweet drink, so the lemon wasn’t too bad but I puckered anyway. Weeeak I know. After lunch we went to Dani’s apartment, and Lysh was there. We played Guitar Hero for a bit and then, since on the tram we were discussing Emily Rose, we watched a few videos on the exorcisms and true stories behind that movie. April got rather freaked out by Jennifer Carpenter’s voice when she was being exorcised (as was Bee ages ago) and her reactions reminded me of how funny watching Disturbia was with her. I mean, imagine someone who flinched and gasped at every moment that there was a sudden movement. Yeah, her.
Jen played with Lysh for a long time, and we watched as Lysh drew April’s face, complete with 2 moustaches, 2 dots for ears, a buzz cut, and 3 eyebrows, and a hole for a nose. Oh and a line joining the two eyes for glasses. Then the three of us – Jen, Lysh and I, that is – sang a few nursery rhymes “Jingle bell, jingle bell, joonda ah dah way!” And Lysh called me “Wee-wee”.
April left, then we left as well and it was rather difficult to leave Lysh behind because she wouldn’t let Dani go, so Dani hid in the toilet until Lysh thought she’d left, and then we covered while Dani snuck out of the apartment. You could hear Lysh crying “mommy” 2 floors down.
We went to South Melb Market, and Wutinie went into a pet store to get stuff for Slash and Kane. Outside the pet store were a basket of things labeled “Pig Ears $1.60” and I picked one up thinking it was one of those plastic toys for dogs to chew on. Then I took a closer look, and asked out loud to Jen, “Jen, are these real?” Then, as the truth dawned on me, I asked again, “Jen…Jen I think these are real pig ears, are they?” And well yeah, they were real dried pig ears, for dogs to chew on probably…but they were real. That wasn’t a nice moment. Holding a mummified pig ear in your hand.
Said bye to Wutinie, and took the tram back into the CBD. Took the train home by myself – stupid sun. I moved to get out of it and it freaking changed sides and shone on me again – and then was told to bus and walk home. I missed the bus by about 6 minutes, and the next bus was in an hour. So I took another bus which was a longer walk, and was quite cold because I wore a short sleeve and the wind had picked up. Parents were worried when I got home because it was late. Well, it’s a Saturday and busses aren’t frequent. So, don’t blame me.
Mom finally got a mobile. Have to help her set it up and…well teach her everything about it (it was my old one so I guess that helps). But the point is, she finally bloody got one.
I’ll be resting tomorrow, maybe touch some Maths, and then Monday I’m off to SALE! SALE! Not a bargain Sale. The place, Sale.
I hope it was an okay birthday celebration for April. I wish more people came, it was the same last year that no one came. I haven’t gotten her a gift yet so I’m still thinking, but I think I managed to whinge her into going to Sale with us. Happy birthday, again, April!
De Fluffe, Out.
