Friday

No school on fridays - thank god. Todays plans are, food shopping, having dinner at beautiful burgers later with Ella, and then watching Avatar at home! Eventful...
Soon it's only 5 weeks left til we go home, can't wait.
Yesterday Ella and I found our new hangout spot.

Anzac Day! - by Gandalf the Great

Anzac Day was such a good day, I'm going to bring it to sweden I think... Everybody goes out drinking around 12 midday and it's apparently the only day a year when this game called 2up is allowed. Ella and I met up with Erin and Paul and a bunch of their friends at the Exchange Hotel in Balmain at around 3, we were supposed to meet them in the Rocks at 11, but we failed to get up... Ella actually failed to get up since she got up in the middle of the night to fix her project for school since she had been stressing about it so much. Freak. But anyway, so we get to this pub and go straight into the room we're they're playing 2up, and its absolutely packed with people screaming and holding money up in the air. So what happens is that a person stands in the middle of the room and flips a coin, before he flips it you bet with a complete stranger on heads or tails, so people are screaming either heads or tails and holding up their money, you find someone who's betting the same amount as you and just take their money out of their hands (if your betting on tails, as tails holds the money), if you're betting on heads you just hand over your money, and then wait for the coin toss and if you bet on the right one, you've won! I started betting after like 10 minutes in the room, but only had a limited amount of cash (Thank god) and lost twice. We stayed at the pub, which was a massive place completely packed, til around 11, then we tried to flag down a taxi for about an hour. We did get home in the end! =)
Tomorrow it is the beginning of a new five week block, monday til thursday here we come. . . Only 6 weeks til Camille's graduation! Sweeet as.

Flying Babies

It has been 2 weeks since my last post. And during these two weeks, pretty much nothing has happened. The Shire was amazing, Cronulla was a nice place! Tomorrow it will be 7 weeks til we go home for Camille's graduation. It's a good thing to look forward to, as it does keep me from dying of boredom in this city. I like sydney, I do, but after 7 months here... I could do with something a bit more fresh and exciting. I'm loving the weather, sunny but not too warm, It's around 23 degrees every day, love it. We even made an attempt to go out last night, (since we for some reason haven't been out in ages), Annika, Ella and I - but we abandoned it at around 11 after a couple of hours at Clock Bar and then Fringe Bar. We are pathetic. Well, last week of this 5 week block now, thats always something! BUT, then a 5 week block with school monday til thursday begins - maah. We do have a Nintendo 64 now which is sweet! Together with the tv it really does feel like we're back in the early 90's playing at home, all that is missing are the colour coordinated Benetton outfits. Oh jesus, here come the flying babies. Everyday at around 4, a flock of birds, all sounding like crying babies, fly over our house. It seriously sounds like 40 babies being born at once. Now I shall go and make a cup of tea.

Good Friday

Oh yes, I have been looking forward to this friday for a long time. Yesterday I could barely sleep, it was like this day was christmas. And do you know why? Because we're making tacos tonight, and we are allowed to eat our easter "eggs", chocolate Buzz Lightyears we bought. I am beyond excited. The past week hasn't been very eventful. Maria (the swedish chic in our building) went home, which is a tragedy. Annika came home from Whitsunday with a tan, which is unfair. We lost about 5 bidding sessions on Ebay, which was kind of good. We we're bidding on PS2's even though we have one at home, we just wanted one here, but then we realised that what we needed was a Nintendo 64. And we have now been carefully monitoring our bids since the bidding goes on for SEVEN days, and now there is only 1 day and 9 hours left. We have realised that we are going to have to be ready to go apeshit on the biddings in the last 40 seconds, because that's when all the shit breaks loose. We have to be prepared. We adopted a tv from our friends, so that half of the game station is sorted. Oh our home will be so complete.
I have now officially started my (fuck sober months) Drinkingallowedbutonlywithinmoderation Month. It pretty much says it all. I think drunken Ceci has to stay at home for a while, she's not really housebroken yet, and she has been destroying Cecilias reputation as a pleasant person. So yeah - she's staying in for a while.
Camille pulled of the rawest april fools joke. She texted mother saying that she had forgot to lock the door of her room in Oxford when she had gone out, and that someone had gone in and taken her computer and a shit load of clothes and her shoes and stuff. Mother texted this to us, oblivious as me and ella were of it being april fools day, we totally bought it. And then mum texted back saying that Camille had just said "April Fools" when mum had called her up completely hysterical and beyond angry. Evil we thought. Like mother said - this was almost as good as when we made dad believe that we we're getting a dog.
On Sunday Erin has invited me and Ella to go to - wait for it wait for it - THE SHIRE. I'm not even kidding. We will be heading down in the car with Erin and Paul, and then staying the night in their house. It's going to be amazing. I think this could be a bit of a dream come true. I know one person who would be so jealous. And she's coming with me, so I'm thinking that can't count. . .
The nicest place in the world, where I'm bringing Ella today!
I know I haven't updated for a while so I would like to apologize to my fans (Nicholas FS) and just say that I will get better at updating and maybe we could have like a competition? Where you could win like.... a chance to speak to me or something? Get back to me on that, I just want to make sure you stay happy. Thank you. Love Ceci.
