[American Idiot – Greenday]
Alright! I’m writing this on time. Today, I went to the Jap festival thing that Jenny dragged me to. Yes, I will say dragged.
Now, beforehand she told me that she might be ditching me for a bit because she has a birthday dinner with some friends. So I didn’t want to be alone, so I texted Josh to come meet up. He was home, but he said okay and came out anyway.
There seemed to be problems in his interpretation of my perfectly worded text, he arrived at Southern Cross at 3, when I said PAST 4! So I made him wait at Southern Cross for a good hour, before telling him we’re going to be at Flinders Street.
Took the train up with Wilson, Kevvy and Jenny. Met Josh at Flinders (that boy complained) and then waited til Andrew (from now on, if I refer to Andrew, it’s Andrew from Brentwood. If I say Hamwu, that’s Dani’s Andrew) arrived. Then took the tram down to Waterfront City. (As we went past Southern Cross station, Josh gave me a greasy look.)
Okay, so I think I will take the blame here, and I got off about 2 stops early. We followed 2 people who were in costumes, who we assumed were Cosplayers, about halfway down the docks, until we thought, no. No that’s not right.
We looked across the body of water, and saw the festival in the distant bank. EVERYONE RAGED AT ME! (Sort of. Ok I raged at myself.) Turned out the “Cosplayers” were actually just in cossies for a costume party. We knew this because 2 minutes later a guy in a full body purple superhero costume walked past.
Finally made it to the festival (see, if I had seen April’s old place a bit earlier, I’d’ve had some point of reference. But as things were, the building was behind me, and I got my directions mixed up). We walked in, found Lois, realized the line for food stretched way into the water (jokes, but not really), and literally sort of turned a few times, watched women wrestling on screen, and then walked out and went to Harbor Town Shopping Center and bought KFC.
Got the Ninja Assassin, Year One and American Virgin DVDs off Lois! Very excited to watch. After KFC, we went to Melbourne Central (I was pretty sure Josh wanted to kill me because I took him back to where he was before), and then to Chinatown. There, Jenny ditched the rest of us (Andrew, Kevvy, Wilson, Josh and myself) for dinner with her group. So yes. We went to play pool at Strike. Josh gave Kevvy the nickname of Cloud, because he looked like him (Final Fantasy). Kevvy pulled off a few insane ninja shots, like jump shots, crazy blind pottings, etc, it was awesome.
Andrew potted the black, thus losing his game.
Finally, Jenny said she’s nearly done. We trekked back to Chinatown, IN THE DRIZZLE NO DOUBT, and picked her up from the restaurant. She said she wasn’t feeling well.
After that, we walked back to QV (Because it would be nearer to Josh’s bus stop, and like hell I’d make his highness walk anymore than he should). Andrew got more KFC (but mind, it has been about 3 hours since we ate prior), and then Jenny and Lois disappeared.
To cut a long story short, Jenny was sick again.
Said bye to Josh, and took Jenny back very gingerly. I may have teased you a lot on the train, dear, but I really was very worried.
At least the staff at KFC were helpful. I said my friend was sick, and we needed bags, and they gave us about 5.
Uni starts in 2 days. I am officially getting those twists in my stomach.
P.S. Thanks Josh for shouting me that creamy cookie puff thing at QV. I recommend them, but actually I think they’re better cold.
