Well, hey, I’m amazing but my awesomeness runs out at some point.
I don’t know why I thought I would do homework this morning. I should…but I can’t seem to find the…ceebness. I still have tomorrow morning a bit, and also tomorrow evening.
Anyway, I was going to write an extremely long blog about yesterday. But firstly, that takes too long and my fingers are cold, and secondly, I can’t recall a lot. NO Not because I got drunk, I know that what you all thought, but simply because all the good moments got smooshed together.
In a nutshell, yesterday was my last day as a kid. Carmaine and I (and Nat, but I spent most of the day with the Carminator) went to SonJ’s lunch at La Porchetta’s near QV Market. Dom came along, and so did Jen and ASH (met him met him. And he reads this. So HI ASH!) and Jack was there too.
Nat and Emily got lost. Yeah. Trust? Yeah…
April went with a guy called Si. Apparently I wasn’t meant to ask about him. He blogrolled me so…hi?
We ate, and we chatted and had heaps of fun. I owned Carmaine in iPhone hockey. Then, as SonJ was cutting the cake, she got me to go up. I don’t know why I didn’t tweak because the next thing I knew she got everyone to sing happy birthday to me too. How embarrassing.
Carmaine wanted a picture of Bel and Julia (it’s weird, but I think it’s best if I start phasing out Julinda now…yeah a variety of reasons but mostly because they don’t like it). They wouldn’t co-operate. So Carmaine calls out “JULINDA!”
Julia turned around. “Yea-DAMMIT!”
That happened again later on. I said if she responds to it 3 times it’s official. But she didn’t respond to it the third time.
We left at around 3 because Bianca was at Melb Central waiting for us. The four of us (Nat included, sorry) took the train back, and of course we talked about the formal. Ehh.
Excellent call of the morning? Dom was eating something and said “I was going to spit it out but then I swallowed it.” I followed with, “that’s what she said.”
After that, I went home for a bit until it was time to go to Korean BBQ which I booked under Bee’s name. The boss got confused when my parents came to pay. They thought Bee was their daughter. And that wouldn’t make sense. Bee’s Goan. I’m Chinese. Even if you don’t know what Goan is it’s not Chinese at all.
Picked Bee up from her place. Got to the restaurant and we got the Karaoke room for freeeee! Four Seasons at Glen Waverley is AWESOME! Bee and I tried to figure out how to turn the machine on, pressing all the buttons (oh and before I forget. Carmaine says later “I like pushing your buttons.” I asked her if she knew what it meant. Her expression said no.) until the boss came up and told us the thing wasn’t on at the power switch.
Eunice arrived. She looked stunning yesterday. Did something special with her hair I think, and WOO! What a stunner. Yes I’m trying to embarrass you.
Annie arrived after yelling at me over the phone because SHE GOT THE ADDRESS WRONG AND NOT ME.
Charlie was downstairs, and I forgot to tell Annie that because she skitzed, wanting to see Charlie. I know that sounds a bit iffy. Whatever. I don’t take responsibilities after the way Annie yelled at me to go downstairs with her to see Charlie.
Fel arrived after that, and rather flamboyantly hugged me happy birthday. I pulled the trump card on her when I wanted something a certain way and she didn’t, and it was my birthday (the next day) so I won.
Carmaine was late by 20 minutes. I had to say it, sorry! Not that I minded. It’s a thing that you do now. It’s your thing.
Carmaine had her fringe all pinned up. I suppose to see it you’d have to go on Facebook when she has uploaded all her pictures.
Now, Carmaine also knew Charlie was downstairs, and at some point early on she thought Charlie had walked past our room to the bathroom. She proceeded to wait outside the bathroom to say hi to him. After 10 minutes she realized/decided the guy who walked past…wasn’t Charlie.
So we sang and we ate, and Eunice and Annie cooked most of the stuff. It was so good! Fel and Eunice did an amazing harmony duet to “I Believe I Can Fly” and Bee and Fel sang the Titanic song twice.
Eunice and I belted out “Dont’ Wanna Miss A Thing” at the end of the night. The restaurant was closing down and we were still singing. Mom and dad got annoyed waiting.
I now have a jacket and a shirt that smells beautifully of meat and kimchi.
Call of the night:
While singing Beyonce, Carmaine said to Bee, “Bee you sing it. You’re black!”
Went to sleep, and when I kept on being woken up by well-wishers around midnight, I put my phone on silent.
Today I’m off to Jenny’s 18th. I think the irony is pretty obvious but I couldn’t care less. I’m going to have a lot of fun, dammit.
