We had a lovely christmas picnic on the beach.
Ok, actually, after our touristic drive, we went back to Flinder’s street, and ate a delicious feast thanks to Claire! I contributed absolutely nothing to the meal except a healthy appetite. Then, after gorging on turkey, we fell asleep before even finishing a bottle of wine.
We returned to Sydney sometime in the evening, and I made some guacamole and a salad, which we all ate for dinner, with left-over turkey. Then, we tried to watch TV, but, we realized that only nerds stay at home and watch TV on a Saturday night, which explained why there were only weir science fiction movies on. So, instead, we went to sleep at some ridiculously early hour.
This morning we got up, and did some shopping at the Rocks Market, and Paddy’s market. I plan to go back to Paddy’s to try to find some gifts for my colleagues at UCL… I’m considering buying 20 pairs of Australian flag underwear. It’s just the sort of bawdy gift a Lao person would enjoy!
Any other suggestions?
As the year 2008 draws to a close… HOLY SHIT!!!! is all I can say.
