Ice Cream, Because I Ate So Much

I don’t have the time right now to write a huge long ass blog about last night (which was totally awesome) because I want to try out the new way of beating Megavideo that I learned on Facebook. So this will be very short and funny. Hopefully funny.

Last night after Chinese finished (By the WAY! Count: DONE! DONE AND DONE AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH) I went straight back to Glenny to meet up with YL to go to Whitty’s house.

Now, I have to warn you, I’m going to have to drop a lot of new names this time because I was catching up with a bunch of people, some of whom I haven’t seen in over four years.

I found YL with El, Jez and Elmo. We were going to take the 754 but Reb was late. Had to wait for her, then we took the next bus to Whitty’s house which is in Rowville. Honestly. Where the bloody hell is Rowville? It feels like Woop Woop.

On the bus I just happened to see Nina who I went to primary school with. We had a long chat about how things were etc. Exchanged numbers. Very good.

Elmo kept on falling down whenever the bus took a turn, so when Jez warned us “left turn coming up” YL and I grabbed Elmo by the shoulders and tried to hold her in place.

FINALLY got to Rowville (I swear China was closer) and it was a hot walk to Whitty’s place. Got there and everyone else was there already, playing Mahjong.

(And, in the blogging style of Katherine)

Hi hi how are you nice to see you again oh mahjong sucks where’s the drinks?

Drink drink.

Laugh.

Play with dog.

Make a few jokes about Swin.

Make many jokes about YL.

Then they decided to play Twister so Mani, Huey and I hid into Whitty’s room and played with his electric guitar. Then Cat joined us. She sat behind the door so when Whitty ran into the room, throwing the door open, she got hidden behind the door.

“WHERE’S CAT?!” He asked.

I started laughing hysterically, because right behind him looking absolutely terrified was the girl he was looking for.

“I have no idea,” Huey managed to say.

Whitty ran out of his room, and Cat’s phone rang. She pretended she was outside. We could hear Whitty in the next room saying, “WHERE ARE YOU?”

We re-joined the rest of them in time to watch a massive orgy happen on the Twister mat, where YL is flashing everyone. Sat down on the couch and started throwing stuff at the players to make it more interesting. Started a pillow fight by accident.

Then we had this weird ass game where you get a cup of milk/water and pearls, and you have to (and man the double meaning is tenfold here) suck up all the pearls, keep them in your mouth and don’t swallow, and then in the end spit them out. The person who spat out the most (as in kept the most in their mouth, as in sucked up the most) won. I got 9. YL got 9. Law got 13. Cat got 1. Everyone else swallowed. Baha.

Then I accidentally started a straw fight. I blew air through the straw at Mani. She blew back at me. I blew it towards Elmo. Then she took it to the next level and started blowing everyone.

Oh wait that…well that probably sounded wrong because Law then remarked “STOP BLOWING EVERYONE!”

Cat was made to eat an entire cup of pearls mixed with ketchup. She didn’t.

Then we had ice cream cake. I got 2 slices. It was good.

Then we started watching District 9. Except by watch I meant YL and I sat there and every time something came on screen we would remark that the other is it. So for example when a guy with a bad haircut came on screen I yelled, “YOU’RE HIS HAIRCUT” or when a guy with a big nose came on, YL yelled, “You’re his NOSE!” We had no idea what the movie is about.

Then we played this other ice-cream game. By this point everyone wanted to die, we had that much ice cream. The game (another one by Swin and Ayms) included four whole scoops of ice cream, and weird ass utensils to eat them with. When I say weird ass utensils, I mean a large spork, a spatula, a roast fork, a freaking potato masher, and an egg whisk.

I was screaming at Cat and YL who were on my team to “JUST SHOVE IT IN YOUR MOUTH IT’S NOT THAT HARD!” Apparently someone filmed it and it would probably float onto Facebook some time soon.

My team won.

So then we sat around watching Huey, Mani, Whitty and YL play this weird video game called Small Fighters or Tiny Fighters or something like that. Elmo and I got bored so we joined Cat on the other couch. Cat then decided to try to torture me. Ok I swear I heard her say “Can I talk to you?” I said sure. She actually said, “Can I torture you?”

Whitty discovered that I’m ticklish, and him and Elmo started tickling me. Unfortunately I thrash when tickled, and Cat had to hold my legs down while I nearly kicked her in the face.

Had a group photo outside on the veranda. The dog was in it.

Then we went back to the living room after having locked everyone outside for a while. Then someone decided (and seriously I don’t know why we said yes) it would be great fun to play hide and seek in the dark. The lights got turned off and instead of playing hide and seek we just walked around with my mobile phone lights scaring people. Then Elmo and I sat on a sofa listening to the distance voices of Cat screaming “STOP TOUCHING ME! HELP ME!” It was relaxing.

Got dropped off home by Mani’s parents at around 10:30. Got home, started changing when I noticed my right earring was gone. I figured it must have slipped out when YL decided to play stacks on on Elmo and myself without telling us.

And that was that.

Damn it still ended up being over 1000 words.

Bonjour, 2009

I went to sleep at around 1 yesterda…no this morning (force of habit. Before Sleep is “Yesterday” After Sleep” is “Today”) after watching the fireworks by myself in my dark living room, with the volume turned down to 7 because my parents went to sleep. I silently mouthed “happy new year” to myself as Channel 7 counted down the New Year for me.

So, what did I do NYE night after I blogged?

After finishing dinner and watching What A Year on Ch 9, I played The World Ends With You for a long time, and then came downstairs to watch Lovely Complex (an anime). I laughed a lot watching it so it wasn’t too bad. I watched it until 11:50, and went upstairs quietly to turn on the TV for the countdown. I knew that Carmaine was at a party (which she told me about today, and it sounded and looked really awesome from the photos) and I knew that Bianca was probably dancing her time away and Eunice…who knows. When midnight came I sent off the batch of texts I had pre-done. Vania replied that I got it on the dot again, so I’m very happy. Jen replied “so everyone knows it’s my birthday?”. Got a few more, then I went to sleep.

Woke up at 9 today, had breakfast, checked emails (net uncapped, hoorah) and went upstairs to start chopping stuff because mom planned on making dumplings. Then, just as I finished chopping, the phone rang. I thought it would be Bianca, it usually is these days, but a soft and familiar voice said, “he-llooooo”. I couldn’t hear it properly because it was soft and I had music in, so I made the voice say it a couple more times before “Oh hey Carmaine! Happy New Year!” She told me about the party yesterday and then she said that she was really bored at home. So I invited her over (first impromptu invite ever) and she arrived in time to eat some fresh dumplings. I looked through her photos of her cruise – backwards chronologically – and it was really awesome, everything that she took, the beach,the sea, the ship, and of course a backwards trip through her various stages of sun burn. Which has now progressed to a very rich dark tan. I mean, her socks and shoes were almost fluro against her legs, and her white short shorts gleamed. Her teeth, when she smiled, was a bit like Ross’s on that episode of FRIENDS when he whitened his teeth too much. I think that the tan will fade after a while, but Carmaine is now indubitably worthy of dark-tan jokes. Which I took full advantage of today. It got to the point where Carmaine called me mean for making all those jokes. But you know that I love you and wouldn’t make those jokes if I didn’t.

We played a few games of pool, she soundly beat me in all games but one. Then we went upstairs and watched some afternoon kid shows (Malcolm In The Middle was good but everything after that got Carmaine to make a face like she’d swallowed a lemon covered in acid) and we did a couple of sudoku’s (she’s so cool, she’s got a sudoku book).

Went back downstairs, watched an episode of Lovely Complex (I thought Carmaine would like it since it’s about a freakishly tall girl) and then she played one last game of pool before leaving about 20 minutes ago. Of course I hopped right on and blogged about it. Ha..ha..sigh.

Not a bad way to spend the first day of the year though. Since I made her laugh a lot, I am about to send off an email to make Eunice and Bianca laugh, thus starting my year long campaign to make them laugh at least once a day.

De Fluffe, Out.

P.S. Happy birthday, my baby Jen.
