That’s The Way She Come Through Like

[wolf whistle]
[Starstrukk – 3OH!3 ft. Katy Perry]

Today, Jackie and I went to the Glen Waverley library to run an errand, and we walked into the study area. Immediately, an onslaught of wolf whistles attacked us.

Now, how do I know it’s not for me?

Jac went into one of the private study booths while I waited half outside. When we were done, I stepped out first. When Jac started coming back out I heard all the guys who’d whistled before say, “she’s coming out she’s coming out!” and then all the way out of the study area wolf whistled followed us.

My Jackie is all grown up!

Go To The Left…Aiyah!

After I finished class today, Jackie (I can’t remember if I mentioned this but Jackie was referred to as “Elmo” before) and I went to State Library for me to find newspaper articles. but before that we got those $4.95 Hungry Jack’s meals. We sat on the Library steps because there was no grass left (Jackie was so shocked that people do that, she’s such a city noob) and it took us almost half an hour to eat everything. And we talked for ages – I talked for ages, Jackie doesn’t actually start conversations, something I have to fix in her.

I took Jackie into State Library for her first time. We went to the newspaper archives and I showed her how they have those microfilms for papers from the 60s and even before. She never realized that State Library isn’t just books.

Then I showed her the Games Room, and we played this dirt bike game for ages, finally getting the hang of it. We still crashed a fair amount. Then we moved onto a Transformers game, where a random guy called Daniel started watching Jackie play, and that was when he shouted out this post’s title. He started making conversation with us for the next 10 minutes until we left.

By the way, Little Big Planet is still there…

Jackie and I did the word scramble on the train back. When we got to Glenny, it was raining pretty hard. We went to the Monash Library where I photocopied some articles I needed, and then we bummed at the foodcourt in the Glen and rated guys that walked past (one guy got a “his face looked like someone stepped on it”). Finally when it was dark, we decided we should go home.

Mom agreed to pick us up, so we waited at the carpark in the rain for a while. I proposed to Jac that one day when it’s warm but raining we should go run in the rain! She laughed uncertainly.

So, in all, it was a good day! For people who came here from my 365, Day 14/365, the reason I’m holding my NDS is to show playing games in the games room.

Ahoy 5 day weekend filled with working on assignments! How depressing.
