Is a turtle without a shell naked, or homeless?

Manly thrusting makes me giggle. But only when Westlife does it.

[3/3] Goodbye to Cowes... (and random cleanup!)

[Day 3]

Well, final day of camp. Not too much happened here.

I guess it's safe to say that the four of us were all metally fucked when we woke up [-.- ~zzz] - I think Monica probably had the worst sleep 'coz she was cramped up in the corner of the bed (her legs didn't drap over the bed like ours did 'coz her end was blocked off by the nightstand).
We had another motivational session-talk thing, though this one wasn't as boring. He came and spoke to us before about being organised, and mental-maps things to help us remember stuff. I can't remember his name, but he was that Olympic diver that did the awesome blackflip xD

Hmmz... that's pretty much all I can remember. I slept a little on the bus, got about half-an-hour's worth. Lol, I wasn't too sure if I'd slept at all but since I was listening to my mp3-player at the time and I remember the song being different from when I fell asleep to when I woke up.

RANDOM CLEANUP - This is just all the little things I wanted to mention, but couldn't really fit them into the entries properly.

"Not-So-Glorious Food": It was just plain BAD... actually, maybe not that bad, but I'd say... decent on the negative side. Imagine:
Bad ----[YOU ARE HERE]---- Decent -------- Good
Pretty understandable though, I mean the food had to be mass produced; really, Nayook food was better (which was still mass produced, but to a lesser extent). You know, by the end of it I actually missed eating rice.

"They called them Bathrooms": Our bathroom was pretty yucky-looking, it had grainy bathroom tiles (the kind at public pools *eewww*). I remember several times coming out of the shower clean, then have my feet get dirty again from all the dirt had stuck to the tiles. The shower itself wasn't too bad though, but the shower head seriously pissed us all off. The stupid thing was tiny (so you got barely any water out of it) and it was stuck right in the middle over the wall - by that I mean, when water came out of it (which I should also say was at a weak-ass pressure), it was JUST at chest level >.>
We were pretty lucky though 'coz we had our own private bathroom (we were staying in a lodge - it was like a set of 6 or so cabins joined together like a big house), some of the cabins had to use separate ones outside.

"Seaweed": I swear there was HEAPS of it at the beach. Every time I got out there'd be several bits wrapped around my ankles. It was kinda gross whenever we got back to shower at our cabins 'coz we'd pull out all these random bits of seaweed out of our shirts and undies [X_x].

"My face!": This really was a combination of the three things just mentioned: bad food, salt water, and bad hygine (from the bathrooms). Even though I bought clenser and face cream with me, by the time camp ended my face felt like sand paper. Before that my face was reasonably ok, it took me like two weeks of using my sister's face masks and hardcore clenasing to fix it. I even had to pull out some skin toner.

"Goodnight Monica" : I think some time on the second day, Monica fell asleep, I think it was during rehersals times for the people doing role-plays. Anyways, me and Nat went to wake her up a couple of times, geez.. took us forever to ge her up. We tried once in the afternoon, then we came back an hour or so later coz nothing happened the first time. From what I recall, we tried:
- tickling
- moving her arms around
- pinching her nose so she couldn't breathe
- did stuff to her face (pinching and so forth)

"The Munchies at Midnight": This is in regards to the four of us staying up late at night. Since we'd be up so late, eventually dinner would wear off and we'd get really hungy. Lisa bought a stash of M&Ms with her and I had my litle box of Eclipse mints, saved us all on both nights from hunger pains. They lasted us well, we polished them all off by the second night. For those who've seen my room, that Eclipse box on my ceiling is the one from camp.

"You call that water?": Just.. eww... We didn't find out until the last day but there was actually a tank of filtered water at camp. We all bought bottled water with us - after we tried drinking water from the normal taps at camp, we tried to ration what little water we had left in our bottles. But man, that tap water was NAAAASTY! At first I thought it was just me, until someone said "... is it just me or does this water taste funny?" I don't know how it compared to everyone else but I thought it tasted like overnight water. For those who don't know, pour yourself a glass of water and leave it overnight. Next day, take a sip of it - if you think it tastes funny then THAT is what camp tap water tastes like. Hint: the longer you leave it out for, the worse it'll taste lol

"The Music Box/Locker Incident": For those who don't know... I'm leaving this open to speculation lol
