Six friends

This is strange. It’s midnight but I woke up half an hour ago to find that I had fallen asleep in my bed. I had just intended on lying down to surf the internet on my iPad and it appears that I fell asleep for about one and a half hours.

I had my birthday dinner last night (well, if you want to be super technical since it’s past midnight, then that would be two nights ago) and most of the people I invited were able to come. Silly Jason forgot. How do you forget a birthday dinner? 😞 Poor Karen had tonsillitis. I was looking forward to catching up with her, but oh well. Had an argument with my mum before James came to pick me up, but let’s not get into that. I wish our doorbell worked properly so he didn’t have to bang on the door. Stupid idiot doorbell. No wonder visitors keep pressing that shit and not getting an answer. The. Doorbell. Does. Not. Work.

I don’t know why we can’t just take it down. It’s an old piece of shit anyway.

James, Dylan and I met Lilian on the train as we made our way to the city. I made my booking way back in April at Wagaya. It’s a lovely Japanese restaurant! I booked one of the washitsu – the Japanese styled rooms – and paid $30. I was told that if I spent more than $300 on the night, I would get the $30 back. It seemed ludicrous, haha. I was beginning to doubt that I’d spend more than that.

I told James everything was on me, and I was paying for everyone, and he kept telling me in the days leading up to Saturday, that he would not eat anything so that on the night he could eat all the sushi in the world or everything on the menu. Hilarious. It got on my nerves after a while. 😰

Since we had about forty minutes to kill once we reached the city, Lilian, James, Dylan and I went to the sticker photo booths. πŸ˜› James and Dylan joined us for two photos where they hilariously touched their lips together for a shot (HAHAHA) and one where they made faces. Lilian and I found it appropriate to decorate that photo with the decal of a cartoon pouting mushroom. 😚

Ryan was running late because the trains were a little borked up. We were possibly running a little late too… oh, no we weren’t. πŸ˜„ We were right on time and we were the first people in the room. Michael joined us next, and he managed to find his way alright. I called up Seb and Ryan and told them to just come up and let them know they were here with Georgina.

One thing I like about Wagaya is the food, but that’s kind of obvious. I’ve been there at least twice already. πŸ˜‹ They have almost everything – ramen, udon, Japanese style spaghetti, sushi, sashimi, Japanese style pizza, grilled dishes… the list goes on. We ordered some noodles and takoyaki (octopus) and a few of us ordered pizza. Dylan had some white rice. O_O Hahahaha.

Ryan finally arrived, though he wasn’t too late. He arrived just after I phoned Jason and he realised he had forgotten. πŸ™ Lilian said that he remembered two days beforehand. What a silly, silly boy.

I don’t know much -if anything – about alcohol, so my obvious response to everyone was, “I don’t know these things!” when I asked if sake was alcoholic. Herp derp. I though, this will be pretty cool. And possibly taste bad. Or familiar. Sake is made from fermented rice, and my mum sometimes makes rice pudding by fermenting it. It’s ridiculously sour – actually, I’m not even sure how to describe the taste. Sake is definitely stronger than the pudding my mum makes. Lilian didn’t want hers and there was some left in the bottle.

LOL GUYS. I HAD THREE SHOTS OF SAKE. Moi, Georgie, who never drinks. Bad.

Something tells me I’m a vodka girl.

Also, I thought whisky was cool, but Dylan gave me a sip of his (mixed with Coca Cola) and it sadly tasted like paint. 😞

Don’t worry, I wasn’t drunk. πŸ˜†

This is the problem, actually. Everyone tells me you know when you’re drunk. I didn’t feel any different, so I suppose I wasn’t. Everyone else said I seemed extremely hyper given my nasty joke comments. Maybe I was just happy that all my friends were there? πŸ™„ I was really enjoying their company though. ☺️

We could watch television but all we got were news channels and some channel with a documentary full of ants. James said he likes watching documentaries while he eats. I usually just watch anything on television. There was a channel with Pirates of the Caribbean. I dislike that movie, but we watched a bit of it anyway, with Ryan copying the actors’ voices. 😁 He was exceptional, and his Sean Connery imitation turned James into a fanboy: “My life is made.”

After eating and some of my friends insisting they pay (no!!!!!!), the bill came to $160 and I managed to put $100 in. Whoever put in 60 dollars… *shakes fist*

We went to eat ice cream at Cold Rock. I’ve never been there before. James pointed out that if you spoonerism the name, you get Rolled Cock. Cold Rock. Rolled Cock. Amused.

Cold Rock just grabs the ice cream flavour/s you want and the mixins you want, and just mushes it all together with the mixins (usually chocolate or candy) on the inside. Hence a cold rock. It was a cold night but we enjoyed the ice cream. Lilian sadly had to farewell us before we went for the bumper/dodgem cars at Galaxy World. We went on twice, if I recall correctly. It might have been three. Ahaha. It was loads of fun, though someone of my stature gets thrown around a fair bit.

After some racing games we decided to call it a day and headed home. :’)

Thank you to all my beautiful friends for coming and helping me complete a goal on my 101 in 1001 list. β™₯️

Michael, Lil, me, James, Dylan, Seb, Ryan πŸ™‚

I also did some volunteering the next day, minding a photo gallery. It was raining and I was so close to cancelling as I was not in the mood and had work to do… but I still wanted the experience and to see some of the photography. I lightened up after hearing that my old photography teacher had his work exhibited there.

I just had to tally up visitors and make sure everything went swell, and it did. It probably wasn’t worth the two hour commute (ugh) but hey, another thing ticked off my 101 in 1001. 😁

Comments on this post

Oh Georgie. Georgie Georgie Georgie. 1) Not everyone can tell when they’re drunk and 2) There’s no way you would have gotten drunk off three ‘shots’ of sake (I don’t think they’re technically called shots even though you drink them from a little cup). And vodka is totally totally different from sake. Sake tastes good and is drunk hot and stuff. Vodka tastes like you’re drinking rubbing alcohol, unless you have it in a mixed drink so that you can’t taste it.

I want to try whiskey. 3: I’m like you–I think whiskey is cool. πŸ˜† Probably because all our favorite rock star bros love it, yeah?

Glad you had fun woowoooooo0oo0

Hmm well, everyone was telling me that having pretty much half the bottle was bad. πŸ˜†

I have too much fun without being drunk. 😞 (Not actually sad about it, muahaha.)

Whiskey tastes like metal or something. It’s pretty strong. 😰

Tastes like metal. That’s why they like it! πŸ˜‰ Oho.

Aw, happy belated birthday! πŸ˜„

I’ve only ever been to a Japanese restaurant once, and it was where the cook would cook in front of us. All I remember is that he added too much soy sauce to my rice and he burnt the shrimp, and that I had one spoonful of sherbet ice cream as dessert. Yeah, it wasn’t that great of an experience.

My friends keep saying that when I turn 21 they’re going to get me drunk so they can be entertained. I’m already a ridiculous and funny person when I’m sober, so I wonder what I’ll be like when I’m drunk?

Oh hello Georgie! This might be late, but Happy bday! Your birthday dinner sounds fun – and I bet everyone has some capacity for alcohols. (But I never really tried one) Haha poor me. You look really pretty! God bless!

Sounds like you actually had a great time! And it looks like you’re making headway on a good chunk of your 101 in 1001 list too! Hopefully, you’ll finish and be very very proud of yourself. πŸ˜„

I have never had sake before, but I personally thinks that vodka tastes all right by itself. However, I’m pretty sure that vodka is the taste of pure alcohol, and some people really dislike it. I find that whiskey and most beers just taste like dirt all the time, but my boyfriend likes both a lot. Hopefully, you were not actually drunk. If you remembered what happened back then and nothing strange happened, then you probably weren’t drunk. (I just have no body coordination when I’m drunk, but my usual inhibitions are in place.)

I also think that it’s extremely awesome of you to treat everyone to dinner on your birthday! I believe that people usually expected to get treated on their birthdays, and I’m certainly guilty of that to some degree.

James’s face reminds me of a teddy bear. πŸ˜„

Sake is an interesting taste. Acquired taste I think … Vodka is my drink of choice and I LOVE IT … I cannot say I have had much to drink for quite some time.

I am glad you had loads of fun πŸ™‚

Happy belated birthday πŸ™‚ sounds like you had a good time!
as far as drinking goes I think everyone’s version of drunk is themselves amplified. so think of yourself on a normal day x100 and that’s usually how you are as a drunk..thats from my experience with drunks and bartending though.I like sake but I haven’t had any good sake in a long time. I prefer tequila and midori when drinking..but I have a very high tolerance,so I can’t recommend it to new drinkers. I hate vodka..but that’s what I started with too πŸ˜†

Cold rock sounds alot like Cold Stones here, I’m not sure if they’re the same though..

Hey G! I miss reading your blog.

I laughed when I read that James would not eat for a couple of days and would eat all the sushi in the world! Imagine if that’s possible, how much would it cost you? Haha!

I suck in remembering dates. I even forgot my sister and mom’s birthday last December. I had to tell them that I wanted to be the last to greet. But nah, they for sure know the real reason. 😝

I’m glad you had so much fun! i have tried Whisky but I have this talent of not getting drunk even if i already had too many shots. Sometimes I love it, and sometimes I just wish I was as wasted as my friends.

Take care! xoxo

PS. I have two blogs now. β™₯️

Happy belated Birthday hun!! Sounds like you had a fab time out at dinner with your friends.
if you start slurring or repeating yourself constantly and if you think its day time meanwhile its night time then that’s what i classify as drunk.

Your birthday dinner sounds awesome! I’m glad you had a good time πŸ™‚ I’ve tried whiskey, and I really didn’t like it. I prefer the fruity and colorful drinks, haha.

Nice new theme, by the way! I like the brighter colors and your choice of font on the headers πŸ˜„

Belated Happy Birthday, Georgie! I didn’t know it was your b’day! Haven’t visited your website for a long long time!! (sry)
I’m glad you had a gr8 b’day!
I loved your new theme btw, it looks so fresh and beautiful! 🌹

Must say, fancy layout. Love the spacing of your emoticons.

Happy belated birthday, sorry I missed it. I’m glad to hear you had a fun time at your dinner.
I haven’t been to cold rock but I would like to go. It will be something to put on my list.

AH man, sounds like you had a great birthday dinner (happy belated birthday too)! I’m actually fairly keen to try out this restaurant, because I believe we both live in the same city (aka Sydney)? Well I hope so at any rate, sounds great!

I clicked to comment and the layout went from pink to blue! It’s great!

Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you had a wonderful time! Our doorbell is exactly the same but my dad won’t remove it, it’s such a nusience!

You must have needed that sleep without realising, hope it left you feel refreshed at least!

The restuarant sounds lovely! Imagine if you and your friends had managed to eat $300 of sushi! Or like James said, everything on the menu! I’ve never really tried a variety of food, just sushi, so it sounds really exciting. Sake sounds nice, whisky is awful though! I drank some straight the other day and it was like paint stripper…never again!

Bumper cars are amazing!!! Argh I’m so jealous!
I’m glad you got to tick something off on your list! It sounds like a lovely day =]

Ho U
