Your weekends are numbered


What a powerhouse of a weekend. I’m so tired that I can’t even write sentences. So I offer you my weekend in a numbered list.

  1. Friday morning bus ride to Melbourne. Bus driver yelled at me for not buying by ticket earlier – I mounted high-horse, pointed out that I was a customer and referred to his ‘tone of voice’. Uncharacteristic but extremely gratifying behaviour
  2. Arrived in Melbourne, put all worldly possessions into locker at State Library, went to library to prepare for phone interview for job
  3. Had phone interview – think it went well
  4. Met friends for Friday night drinks – drinks very well enjoyed
  5. Realised has been enjoying drinks too much – worldly possessions locked inside State Library, unable to be retrieved until Saturday 10am which doesn’t help me because I have to leave the city to attend a wedding at 8.30am. Outfit for wedding, makeup, toothbrush inside locker.
  6. Way too early Saturday morning – go to Lara’s to borrow clothes, Greg drives us to Glenburn to fight off burglars at Elisa’s farm
  7. Fought off burglars and made salads, played with Sook the cute old dog
  8. Celebrate Elisa’s wedding in a ger
  9. Drove back to Melbourne listening to Gold 104 Party Rock Hits – Queen, ELO, Elvis Costello, Warrant, etc.
  10. Caught up with Robyn before she flew off to Perth much too soon
  11. Slept
  12. Sunday morning – waited for a break in rain to go to State Library to retrieve possessions
  13. Went back to Lara’s relished opportunity to shower and change out of three-day-old clothes
  14. Made bee-line for nearest purveyor of dirty chinese food suitable for hangover
  15. Went back to Lara’s, read the last 50 pages of John Banville’s The Sea
  16. Relocated to Rowan’s new house, pretended to help unpack
  17. Cooked dinner
