– an investigation of the human condition

Sam & Vanessa’s Birthday Bash!

Last night we celebrated Sam’s 20th and Vanessa’s 19th by having  dinner first at the awesomely cheap Lansdowne Hotel ($5 meals!) then headed off to the ridiculously expensive Argyle at the Rocks, then finished off at the moderate, but still pretty dear, Jackson’s on George.

It was a good night of catching up with mates that many of us hadn’t seen in the entire 4-5 weeks of break, however to the dissapointment of some, not everyone could make it and many  bailed early due to commitments the next day.

I must say, everyone looked superb all dressed up. And everyone was quite well behaved, probably a result of the posh venue and cheapo uni-student combination (but I left early too so yeah, no idea what eventuated as the night progressed – perhaps someone can enlighten us!)

Elyce drove me in and we went and picked up Steph from work. And guess where she works now everyone?! Sydney University Student Office in Carslaw Building! Woot! I’ve got connections in the uni now! These two freaked me out later in the night but, when they left to go home before me, but Tas and I got back and saw that Elyce’s car wasn’t home yet, and both their phones were off and none of them replied to my messages. We drove around for a bit and eventually found them at Steph’s place and discovered that they had stopped off at Maccas quickly on their way back. No idea why the phones weren’t working, but I was just glad that they were alright.

Thanks to Tas for giving me a lift home. How crazy is this but – we got pulled over for an RBT by undercover cops driving what resembled an old mother’s station wagon. One cop came down my passenger seat side, and another to Tas. Tas wondered if he had to blow or suck (thinking that they still used those plastic straw like bits) but the cop told him to count to ten instead. I LOLed. They let us go without any dramas but Tas couldn’t get over the fact that he was pulled over for the first time ever, and he was still freaking out a bit, even though we both had nothing to worry about 😛

Oh, and I was meaning to clarify that this photo of Luke showing off his slowly but surely growing chest hair was him completely sober. Enough said.

So yes, Happy Birthday Vanessa and Happy Birthday Sam. Hope you both enjoyed your night 🙂
