I don’t want to feel obliged to blog about anything, because I feel like if I’m doing this like a chore, it would become homework. And what the fuck I gave myself homework?
So perhaps just a short post on what I did yesterday and today.
Yesterday was my 18th birthday. In the morning I got up, and decided to reply every Facebook birthday wish I get. Bad idea. I didn’t get any Legal homework done.
Went to Brandon Park (by the way, this has come up before. Brandon Park isn’t a PARK it’s a shopping centre) for lunch because Dad didn’t leave anything for me to eat and like hell I’m cooking canned soup on my birthday. So I had Maccas for lunch. Ew.
At 4, Mom dropped me off at Fel’s. Shaz proceeded to be 20 minutes late (you know, Carmaine…someone HAS to do it. I shouldn’t blame you solely.) so we were late setting off.
Driving to Jenny’s takes shitloads of time.
Jenny’s was incredibly fun. Jack and Dom sucked at Singstar. Mai raised the roof with “WOAH WE’RE HALFWAY THERE” and then we had food and more Singstar and then cake. Jenny got everyone to – deja vu? – sing happy birthday to me. Half the people there didn’t know me so that was quite interesting. When it came to “Happy birthday dear…” Mai decided to scream above everyone else “ALEX!” which made me laugh.
Got home past midnight. Fel was, and I have to admit, the last person to say Happy Birthday in person. Catherine was the last altogether.
Slept soundly through to 10 am. Was sort of late to leave to meet Catherine.
Met up with Catherine UCMC (it’s not catching on! DAMMIT) and we went to buy the tickets for The Proposal, and then went off to eat Nandos because she was craving it when her face was still blown up and she was sipping puree through a straw. I had the Extra Hot while she went for Lemon and Herbs and Ketchup. WEAK SHIT!
Had a fun chat while eating, and then went up to watch the movie.
Which is where the title comes in.
There was a scene when Sandra Bullock’s character was in the yard on the phone with a client. Ryan Reynold’s character’s family dog got out, and an eagle (they’re in Alaska) swooped in and took the dog. Sandra Bullock rescued the dog, but the eagle took her phone. Frantic, Sandra Bullock held up the dog and screamed “TAKE THE DOG! TAKE THE DOG!”. Ryan Reynold’s “family” was watching her from the kitchen window, thinking she was playing with the dog.
Well that was the end of my holidays. Work tomorrow. As in homework. Remember the Legal I didn’t do? Still haven’t done it.
