Is a turtle without a shell naked, or homeless?

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

MYSPACE: [01/10/07] Mid-Semester Break, and I’m scared to live in my own house.

This seems to be the most decent entry I've done as of late that I thought I should copy over. The original post was on MySpace on 1st October, so I'm just copying it over now (see previous entry!)
[HEADS UP: Long post!]

You know, this has probably been my most eventful school/uni break I've had in a long time. Pretty much all the things I wanted to, or haven wanted to do for a while:
- Went out a lot
- Got a job
- Fixed my ceiling
Let's start from the start:

Monday was Steph's birthday. Went out to see Superbad with her and a few of her other friends (if I can remember their names: Serita - spelt like it's said? I have no freakin' clue but she's awesome; Vince - her close family friend; David - another family friend? In any case, I think he goes to my uni; Andrew - though he left pretty early on; and Ben - I think that's his name but eh, I forget... but he likes Final Fantasy piano music).
Movie was better than I thought it would be, but was a LOT dirtier than I thought it would be - still good all the same. 6.5/10.
But within the last 10 minutes or so of the ending, the film screwed up so there was sound but no video. Everyone left the cinema and cracked it at the staff, and we all got free movie passes (yay!)

Rocked up home at around 11:30, bummed around for a while, then went online. Started chatting to Kristin and Peter 'coz they were asking about karaoke and sleeping over (ie. stuff we were gonna do on Friday), turns out they were heading out to go to another friend's (Allan) house for BBQ. I ended up going as well: I snuck out of the house while my mum was asleep (my sister was awake though), picked up Kristin, met up with everyone else (Peter, Chii Shi, Wang, Andy; Andrew rocked up later), stopped at Coles to buy food, and drove to Allan's house. We ate random kebabs and sausages, while watching Die Hard 4 and Jackass. Oh man, I didn't get home 'til 6:30am, almost shat my pants when I was walking through the front door hoping my mum wouldn't wake up.

Tuesday... Wednesday.
Tuesday and Wednesday were somewhat less eventful, mainly just rolling around the house and doing nothing, with the exception of resume-spamming around Knox and Glenny. And finally getting around to restoring my ceiling... took freakin' 4 hours to get it all done, plus put up a few new things. I got two calls for job interviews though, one at Muffin Break, and another one at Max Brenner. Although I don't mind working at either, I'd prefer working at Max Brenner. Here are my ideas about both:

Muffin Break:
- It's muffins
- Reasonably easy work
- Standard pay (same as Max Brenner)
- Other people working there seem nice
- not very busy (can be good and bad)

Max Brenner:
- It's chocolate
- Usually busy (can be good and bad)
- Lot of training for different stuff
- Standard pay (same as Muffin Break)
- ... dude, it's chocolate.

I'm starting training for Muffin Break tomorrow (Monday) which is a bit retarded since I didn't expect them to take me in straight away, I'm still waiting for Max Brenner to call me back on Wednesday and hopefully I'll get the job there, though I'll feel bad turning down Muffin Break, especially after starting training.

Ahh.... job interviews. Max Brenner was good, got interviewed by the store's manager, Emma. She was nice, took down notes an' whatever, seemed somewhat promising. Muffin Break was alright, but like I said before I got accepted straight away, training starts on Monday. Sister came home, wants me to bum around with her at home, gonna watch Lord of the Rings 3 (after watching the first two earlier today). Will finish this later <3~!
When I was about to head home, Nat called - she was meeting up with Kristin, Nat, Peter, Wang, Vincent, Andrew, Lisa, and Ben for dinner at Bob's Kitchen, then go watch Rush Hour 3. I tagged along, all was good. Ate dinner, watched the movie, then all of us bummed around at Airstream for a while, then went home. Oh wait, forgot to mention I started geting a headache during dinner, and within the last hour of the movie HOLY CRAP IT HURT SO BAD. Popped two pills (Panadol) soon as I got home.

Ahhh Friday..... drove to Glenny to catch the train to city. Met up with people (mmh... Chii Shi, Peter, Andrew, Wang, Allan, Vincent, Kristin, Nat, Lisa, Chii Shi's girlfriend who's name is either Feng or Fang - sorry!) at FM Karaoke on Bourke St at about 4 (mental reminder: k-box is better). Sang lots of songs (including Westlife, Backstreet Boys, among other things~) 'til 8. walked to Maccas and bought food to eat on the train (we all finished eating before we got on though, the train took about 20 minutes to arrive).

Got back to Glenny, everyone came to my house with the exception of Vincent and Lisa (she left while we were still at kara though, was going to another friend's birthday - sorry Vidhya I didn't go!).
Started watching The Grudge 2 (US Version), and afterwards started talking about ghost stories and how Peter's and Chii Shi's houses were potentially haunted - it is currently Monday at the time of finishing this blog post, and I'm still shitting myself walking upstairs and going to the toilet myself at night. I hate you guys.
We moved over the back side of my house 'coz my mum was sleeping upstairs, then we were just chatting about random crap. Kinda got hungry at about 4am, so Peter and a few others started making onigiri.

--> INSET: Everyone seems to love my house, usually for it's abundance of food. We usually like to keep our fridge and cupboards well stocked with stuff, and it's probably something we take for granted 'coz I don't think anyone elses house has that much food. I mean, if at 4am I can pull out stuff to make onigiri (tuna, Japanese mayo, nori/seaweed sheets), then hey, that's kinda cool isn't it? <--

I kinda felt like making cake, so I headed out with Andrew, Wang, Nat (we were taking her home), and Kristin to the 24-hour Coles in Burwood (I had to buy chocolate).
Got back at around 5am, I started making cake soon after that. Fang and Kristin fell asleep, Allan kept running on the treadmill to keep himself awake, and Peter was playing Scabble with Andrew, Wang, and Chii Shi. I think Andrew went home at about 7:30 or 8, Peter left at about 9, and Allan went home soon after as well (my mum was heading up to Glenny and she offered to give him a lift up).

Between 9:30 and 12 I kinda phased in and out of sleep, and I think everyone else kinda did too. Kristin probably got the most sleep 'coz she piked it ealier than the most of us, haha. At around 1 I drove everyone out to Glenny 'coz we got hungry and started craving sushi. After we ate, Kristin bumped into her mum and went home with her, so I drove home Chii Shi, Fang, and Wang.

I think I got home at about 4 or so, and oh man, HAD THE MOST AWESOME NAP. My god... I slept 'til 10:30 or so, went downstairs and ate "dinner". Rolled around the house for ages since I wasn't really tired anymore - bummed with my sister when she came back from clubbing, and I finally went back to sleep at 5.
Yep.... so that was my nicely eventful mid-semester break. And I'm pretty done with this entry, will probably write again soon seeing as I'm pretty active on MySpace these days and I hate myself to admit that I like it too [D;].
