Day 80 - French Alex's Last Night

Would be pretty cool if there was... I dunno.. Water?
June 27th, 2015

Housemate Alex is moving out tomorrow; party tonight! I don’t have any plans and Thomas had just told me about it briefly last night. Sure, should be fun!

Gym, Write, Edit, etc etc until Shimou finished shopping in town and arrived at my place. It’s about time I cooked for her. She’s convinced that I can’t actually cook, and I have given her little evidence otherwise. I will continue to show no evidence tonight. It’s 10 minutes before Tran’s Emporium closes, so we hustle on down there to buy a couple ingredients I was missing, namely rice. Back to my place: I make us noodles, left over curry, and boiled, store-bought dumplings. Master Chef, Aussie Edition.

Seeing as it’s a party tonight and I have no alcohol, it’s time we boogie on down to my backdoor hookup, Dan Murphy. Shimou is starting to feel a little sick as we walk there, blaming it on the curry. Maybe, maybe not. On the upside, they had a bin of $5 bottles of wine that looked interesting, and she picked up a bottle of Butterscotch Schnapps. She didn’t know what schnapps was, but she may just find out tonight!

The share house is dead, with only Alex puttering around in the kitchen. I ask when people are going to show up, but he doesn’t know. Probably late. I show Shimou Portlandia, but I don’t think she can follow it that well. She commented on the lack of logic in the show, which the show itself made a joke about a few minutes after her comment. Had a good laugh at that one.

We started watching Fight Club after a while of me trying, and failing, to get Chinese subs, but she seemed to be able to follow it. We then got in a small fight which took most of the night to smooth over. A couple of the neighbours did eventually show up after midnight, singing and playing guitar, but I wasn’t in the mood for it at that time.
