I wonder what the poor people are doing

20 Jul

Here are a few loose ends that I missed between posts:

I had a birthday!! 27. Thank you all (most) for the well-wishes! I went out with 13 mates to see stand-up comedy. It was hilarious and we made it our Monday night thing. Here are pictures of my amigos:

Bevy.

Angels.  Well, the one on my left is, anyway.

so much gratitude

Also, The Fourth of July has happened — to celebrate, I sang the national anthem with an Australian. And, I heard this funny one-liner:
Q: Why aren’t there any knock-knock jokes about ‘MERICA?
A: Because freedom rings.


In news news: I drank a glass of wine in the Yaas valley, went golfing, saw a live rugby game where both teams wore green and white (confusing), watched a hologram movie, and made oysters yawn against their will.

In sports news: Australians World Cup team is seriously called The Socceroos.

In other sports news: Australians play all 3 games in a series even if 1 team has already won 2 games. So the final State of The Union was on and for the first time in 9 years New South Wales took home the gold. Some boys I know are very excited.

And finally, ONE OF MY NEAREST/DEAREST IS GETTING MARRIED.
MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To the love of her life.

I don't think you need your heart checked, it's perfect.

CELEBRATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Forever ever ever,

    Didn’t know you were such a sports fan, Thanks for posting. Always, always LOVE reading about your life. I never saw a purple cow and never hope to see one. And I never saw an oyster yawn and have NO idea what that even means. Love you.

      If you force an oyster to yawn…you see inside of it’s mouth. And if you see what’s inside of it’s mouth you squeeze a bit of lemon on it. Dash a bit of tobacco sauce inside. And eat ’em. xo!
