Crazy weekend

Well, what a crazy, alcohol fueled weekend!

Friday night was a going away party for one of the guys leaving work.

He's going to China to work on games over there. Hopefully in a few years time I'll feel confident enough to take on a role like that. I've only been working at Ratbag for just over a year, and although I can do testing fine, there aren't many testing jobs about the place. Once I get into level design things might be different.

Anyway, it was at the Grace Emily, a cosy little pub in the city, and I got very pissed and unlike last time I was there, throughly enjoyed myself.

On Saturday, I was invited to an old school friend's birthday. I was only invited on the Friday, and their house is ages out of the city, and as I still rely on public transport I thought it just wasn't worth it... If I had a little more time, I woud have saved money for a cab!

Anyway, I stayed home, had a drink or two, watched foxtel, and my flatmate went out to a dinner, bringing peeps back with her, and then inviting more along the way.

It was a pretty damn crazy night, between about 8 of us we polished off 12 bottles of wine!

I passed out at around 4 or 5 am, and apparently some guy got a wicked blood nose (thru natural cause - we aren't violent people ;) and my wonderful flatmate cleaned it all up, and then continued to do the whole house before I got up! It helped that she was geared up to do it...

Needless to say I'm feeling pretty seedy right now :-S

Next week is the Schutzenfest (aka the Shit Faced Festival) and I might head along, although it tends to be a VERY expensive day, and I have little money...

However, if a certain someone goes, I'll probably go too...

Happy New Year!

I'm happy to say that 2005 looks indeed to be my year.

It's amazing what the space of 5 days can do for you... My post on the 29th was an indication of how bad I was feeling, but now none of that matters.

I had two awesome nights on the 30th and 31st Dec with some new, interesting people, and the symbolic new year has lifted my mood considerably.

Nothing too exciting happened, but something happened to get me excited about this year, something to get me excited about life in general once more!

It's a new dawn, a new day, a new life for me, and I'm feeling GOOD!
