[What’s My Age Again? – Blink 182]
Today was a long day for me. I woke up at 6:30 to make it to a 9 am lecture, which was apparently rather good, because it was the topic for which I have an assessed presentation.
Coffee’d this bitch up, and added fuel to the fire with Dr Pepper. So, by the time that Annie, Jen and I went around the city for me to buy a sweater, I was pretty much at a point of utterly testing their patience with me.
In the end, I couldn’t find the sweater I had in mind, so I shivered through the afternoon breeze. Jen took us to get frozen yogurt at QV, and OH MY GOD I DISCOVERED THE MAGIC OF REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS! AND FROZEN YOGURT! 11 dollars REALLY well spent. Not that eating frozen yogurt helped with how cold I felt at all. So, with sugar, caffeine and a good amount of pre-hypothermia running through my body, I jittered my way through Big W while the other two looked at cook-books and shoes.
Unfortunately, Jen had to leave just before Annie and I met up with April. April was wearing her brother’s shirt – it was good to see that despite all the changes that April has gone through, some things stay the same, like her stealing her (gay) brother’s wardrobe. I don’t know how to comment on that.
Had a big of a laugh over drunken antics by both Annie and myself over the past month or two (both stories I have neglected to write here, nor will I write in the future, for one is of extreme embarrassment to Annie, and the other to me). We promised to one day soon go drinking together so that April can see Drunk Alex. I don’t know, I still don’t feel like drinking all that much.
Went to the Seoul House for Henry’s birthday dinner (Henry, to catch y’all up, is a friend of Brendan and Min-‘s (Min- being Brendan’s most recent ex. Yes tres awkward) who took turns taking care of me with Brendan when Drunk Alex came out to play). Apart from Brendan and Jun (his current girlfriend), I knew no one there, so it was interesting to make conversation with very outgoing loud people who I may never see again.
We were very rowdy and loud and, well, the waiters and managers got VERY annoyed at us in the polite, passive Korean way. One of them we called Bitch Fayth – having similar appearance to a friend called Fayth, but looking like a total bitch. Ah the maturity.
Also realized that while alcohol may help ease social gatherings of strangers, it really matters if the personalities get along. You may take that however you wish.
Called/messaged Cindy on the way home. It was a packed train from people coming home from the footy. Utilized my phone’s battery up to the last 10%. I was rather touched when Cindy told me to conserve my battery but say something once in a while so she knows I was still alive.
That’s it for today, I think, even though it was a really long day, it was one of those not-that-many-new-experiences-just-the-same-stuff-with-different-faces kind of deal.
I will endeavor to catch y’all up with some new people I met recently in parenthesis in my immediate future posts.
