Brooke’s 18th

Brooke and MintyLast night partway through Matthew’s 18th party, Sean and I made our way over to Brooke’s 18th, which was also the party for her friend Abby who had turned 18 recently as well. We had a great night, hanging out with guys from Sean’s indoor team, Brooke and her friends as well as the various parents. It was a nice, relaxed night hanging out on the deck, eating, laughing, drinking, chatting and watching a certain someone pretend to feed the dog burbon. <– which was immensley funny to watch the reaction when people thought the dog was been fed burbon.

After the utterly decant cake from Chocolat and home made yummies, we piled into to two maxi taxis to head off to Friday’s for a fun filled night. Hanging out at Friday’s is always great since they have a big outside are to sit, drink, talk etc. Both birthday girls scored us all free entry and they got some free drinks as well. I shouted Brooke a Viagra (Vodka, Blue Curacao and Red Bull). Sean shouted me a Skyy Platinum, which I had not tried before and was very tasty. The highlight of the night for Sean and Dave was for sure their decision to get a Johnny Walker Blue on the rocks between them, costing them AU$25. I had a sip and whoa what a scotch, I think I will stay to the Johnny Black. Somewhere near 2:20am, Sean and I arrived back at his place, after one of the best nights out I had in long time. Happy Birthday Brooke!!

exams, post and fun

Well I now have two mid-semesters completed and one to do next friday, now I can focus on my semester essays all that are now round the 3000 word mark and require extensive research.

My heart broke for a stranger in my mid-semester today for a class called Approaches to Asia’s History, we only have about 15 students in the subject, so when this girl rocked up today for the exam, we were suprised, she had not been to any of the workshops, so I watched her periodically during the exam and when she got up to leave and hand in her paper, the lecturer advised her to come to workshops when she can and then when she left, started to read her paper, like he had for the others who had already left, I could see that she had left most of the questions unanswered. I could not understand why, if she knew she could not attend the workshops, why she even enrolled in the class.

I struggled with one question, where I was not able to recall enough information on the events in Pangkor during the 1870’s.

I had a good mail day today, an ebay parcel containing a new memory card for my forthcoming camera, a 2peas order arrived at Barb’s ( πŸ™‚ heaps of fun stuff to play with), and a package arrived from Fiskars with the tools I will be needing when I work for them at the upcoming Craft Show with the extraordinary Helen Williams. Heaps of fun πŸ™‚

Also spent time completing the Virdian Room and Crimson Room, heaps of fun and I got some scrapping in too πŸ™‚

Tommorow I have two 18th birthday parties to attend and photograph, going to be a busy night, I wish my 350D would have arrived for the events but that is not so.
