Temple of Dreams

June 29, 2007

So last weekend I one-stopped it up to Sydney for a bit.

The trip was uneventful up until Punchbowl road, where I saw possibly the coolest thing ever (definitely a lie, that bit. Whatever). As I was waiting at the King Georges / Punchbowl lights I started hearing this weird popping sound. So I wound down my window to get a clearer idea where it was coming from, and saw a massive wad of bubble wrap in the middle of the road and the cars that were going through the intersection were running over it constantly. I laughed… cars playing with bubble wrap. And then I wondered if Transformers liked bubble wrap.

First thing of note in Sydney was Biz’ hair, or lack thereof. As Miz observed, he now looks like a little buddha.

Went to Loshua’s place, and was treated to a Hugs special when it came to parking the car. There was a huge hole next door (not as good as Muz’ hole). Apparently someone built an underground carpark, but forgot the drainage so now it’s an underground reservoir. On the way home we were treated to another Hugs special – driving the wrong way down a one way street. It was a long street too.

There was a lot of Guitar Hero playing on Saturday. It’s such a boring game. Even Drift ‘n Burn is better. And I didn’t even play it.

Had a chicken roll for tea.

Saturday night I went to Torv’s partay, and it was mad, but you don’t know anything about her, so I won’t bore you. Biz and Miz went to the footy. While they were there Slim used Kimrad’s phone to call Hugs’, and Loshua answered. Gold. When we got home Hugs and I had another chicken roll.

Sunday I busted my moves on Sylv (ie. made her think of something to do for the day, made her drive, discarded her ideas of what to do – the only movie on at the film festival was Temple of Dreams.., laughed at her workmates, dragged her along to record stores, etc). We saw some guy in George street cutting off his hand. I think Sylv thought it was real, but it wasn’t. We hit The Italian Forum for a very late lunch, and the waiters were tops. Idiots, but pretty funny. The food was so-so. I ate something chicken and Sylv looked at her pasta for an hour or so. Then we made a mess by combining cheese, chili, and… the other goo on the table… bread dip? Help me out here Sylv. We’re such mature adults. (I paid. Hugs, it’s totally under control, wrapped up, sorted).

Got a message from Jez inviting me to his church that night. Decided to dog St. Davids, and convinced Sylv and Hugs to as well. Ended up hearing the practice run of the Mission In Our Own Backyard talks from Smithy. What a bonus. Then went home and had a chicken roll. And tried to talk about the Arabs, but it didn’t work. Instead we watched a comedy about the special Olympics. It wasn’t funny.

Monday I headed over to PTC for a bit. Turns out pretty much everyone was there. Junj, Loshua (only for the free lunch), and Trent. Small world.

Then I one-stopped it home again. Uneventful trip except for a while where I drove at eighty on an undivided section of road just to annoy a truck that was tailgating me, to the point where he started flashing his lights at me. After a while we hit a hill, and I gunned it. Left him in my Holden Corolla dust.

I highly recommend random/irrelevant/irreverent trips to Sydney, on a regular basis.

  1. I didn’t answer the phone because I was interested in the footy. It was at a critical point in the game..kinda.

  3. T’was olive oil and vinegar, but bread dip (spread) works fine.
    There was no pasta to look at, because I had the risotto. But that’s okay :)

  4. ptc was rad, all the lecturers knew me cos my dad’s a minister, and they thought i was about to follow in his footsteps. sorry guys, i’m just a uni bum out for a free feed.

    Also, you only found guitar hero boring because you didn’t actually play it. if you’d given it a go instead of sulking on the lounge, maybe you would’ve enjoyed yourself.

  5. Sylv, no pointing out how uncultured I am, or I’ll point out that you placed that apostrophe in the wrong place (again).
