Learn to Fly

April 12, 2008

Well It’s been a pretty big couple of days for me. Yesterday was my birthday. It started out by going to a sweet Japanese restaurant that chucks food and does cool tricks. Being the birthday boy, I copped it a bit, with three eggs being slingshotted towards me. Oh well, it was good fun. By the time dinner had finished, I had consumed a couple of beers and a saki (Japanese beer), which was totally feral. I was still going strong. We then headed into Newtown, the ‘cool kid’ part of Sydney. The bar we went to was called Zanzi Bar. It was a pretty hip place. Quite immediately I was being bought drinks. Within the first 30 minutes I was bought four shots, tequila, vodka, uzo and jager. Quite surprisingly to myself, I didn’t feel affected at all. By this time, I had also had about 5 waters, being the sensible Christian I am :P I was next bought a cowboy shot and got the privilege of ordering an appletini. I ordered it the same way JD from Scrubs does…”Easy on the teeni”- to my dismay the bartender didn’t respond to this. It was at this time that I started to feel a little tipsy. My speech wasn’t slurred, but my balance wasn’t the best. I brushed walls that I thought I had cleared, and scaling the steep steps proved a little challenging. Over the next couple of hours I had a couple more drinks, two beers, strongbow and feral Guinness. A couple of funny incidents happened but I’m sure they will be funnier to tell when I see people in public, not over this blog. I crashed at Josh’s and the nice taxi driver ripped us off of about $10, but we were so tired we didn’t notice/act. Today I was up early for PY touch footy, which lasted from about 9am till 3pm. We were all extremely tired, and narrowly missed out on making the finals, but being so tired and in need of sleep, no one really cared.

I’ve managed to get away with being so disorganised for much of my life. But I think it’s caught up to me. I left my passport to the last minute, meaning now not only do I have the privilege of going oversees, but I get to fly 15 000km’s, 20 hours, two countries, all by myself a couple of days after my family leaves. I think it’s fair to say I am a bit nervous. I’m pretty confident in what I have to do to get to Greece, but catching the train to the south of Greece could present a couple of hurdles. In fact, thinking about this has started making me a lot more nervous. It will all be good if I meet some awesome chick on the plane and pick up…shut up I can dream! Anyway I’m really tired so ima not go over and edit the post. I’m sure the next few days will have some interesting stories, that I must remember to post.

  3. I didn’t drink any alcohol on my birthday, but a couple of days later I got peer pressured into having a ‘buttery nipple’… not as bad as it sounds. I Hope you had a good birthday, and that you didn’t feel hung over!

  6. I was quite surprised how little it affected you given the amount that you drank.
