Update on Trivia

Damnit. I have one late night and now I've missed a blogging day for the month of June. Gah!

But it was kind of nice to get out and have some (sort of) fun. I'll make this sort of short because it's past midnight and that is WAY past my teacher bedtime and because I'm cold and my bed is warm and therefore I need to go lie down soon.

J. wasn't feeling well after working late, so he didn't come. That was the saddest part of the evening. Because I missed him, lots. And because he is the sports whiz so we were sort of useless without him. And because I missed him. Did I mention that?

My good friend L. came though on last minute notice, which was awesome. I did my first team teaching prac with L. last year and we went from strangers to friends pretty quickly. She's really a fantastic chook and I love her alot. Turns out she's having dramas with her partner of over 6 years too which I wasn't aware of because teaching has turned me into a horrible, slack friend. I missed her too. So, it was good to catch up.

We came third last. Which is the same as last year, so at least we didn't get worse. Heh. The emcee was lame, had lame jokes, had lame people dressed up as clowns but it was good fun. We had Subway for dinner and some snacks and carrots and stuff, and it was bloody cold in the hall. Only six rounds, but lots of activities in the middle and in between.

Because I am lazy I shall do the highlights of the evening in point form. Here goes. (No photo commentary today, thanks.)

# Mum, Nan, Alita and L. dancing the Nutbush and Macarena. Nan dancing with the help of her walking stick. L. winning a runner's up trophy for dancing in a trench coat.

# Me remembering (at least the first name of) that dude that stepped down so Ian Thorpe could swim at the Olympics?? What -- it's a sports question, I wasn't expecting to get any of them right but I KNEW his name was Craig. Go me!

# Winning very random prizes including a potplant, several boxes of cereal (possibly several dozen when we combine the family prizes together) as well as a free pass for a tour of the Museum of Contempory Arts, woohoo.

# BUYING $5 WORTH OF RAFFLE TICKETS AND RECIEVING NOT A SINGLE PRIZE. AND THERE WERE ABOUT FIVE BAZILLION PRIZES AND DAMNIT, NONE OF MY NUMBERS GOT CALLED. (I was quite peeved.)

Perhaps tomorrow I will provide you with a picture of the amount of cereal we won. I'm not joking, we won't need to buy anything for months. I'm all set with my NutraGrain, Rice Bubbles and Special K. Good prizes, I say. Very practical anyway.

Time for bed. And when tomorrow (ack, wait, that's today already!) comes, I'll see J. Finally! Miss him. Have I mentioned that? Goodnight!
