No prank this year actually. I just couldn’t top last year’s, and if I’d tried no one would have believed me anyways. But Randy came up with the title for today’s post, and it’s a good one, so it’s sticking.
The party was a housewarming party for Ziv and Tim. Ziv’s actually lived there a while, but Tim just moved in so they had a party. They’ll have another after Easter since this one rocked. Ziv had made home-made tzatziki and was practically force-feeding it to everyone, and then we started salsa-ing. Really drunk salsaing. Or in my case getting spun around. There’s a line in terms of drinking that has been set at the PV institute. It was set by this lady, Florence, who’s just about done her PhD now. At the year-end party she got ridiculously drunk (which is easy for her, because she’s this tiny little Chinese woman). My supervisor, Stuart, took the same taxi home with her, to make sure she’d be okay. She threw up all over him. So the line: puking on your supervisor.
Today Ziv and Roland and I went to a picnic in Centenial Park and played some cricket. After the picnic, we went to Bondi junction for free food. A strange thing in Australia: a lot of things close at 6pm. Including malls on Sundays. And their food courts. So at 6pm on Sundays, all the food stores just give away their excess food. We scored some turkey sandwiches and baked potatoes. Yes. Baked Potatoes. I think the highlight of my weekend was looking into that bag of still-warm baked potatoes, and then Ziv picking up a giant potato and biting into it. He ate over half of it. I’ve got mine for hash browns tomorrow. We need to get our technique down though. We were waiting for the free sushi. We saw the owners leave, and leave the left-over sushi on the counter. We weren’t sure if they were coming back though, so we waited 5 minutes. Then these other people came in a did a rounds of the court - they took the two full bags of baked potatoes, the two bags of sushi, and took off. Next week we’re going to beat them to the sushi! I’ll keep you posted on how it works out.
