Despite the fact I had to clean up sick in the girls bathroom (although the culprit was actually a boy), cleaning was actually quite enjoyable today, possible due to the fact that Bex's dream about her going out with James Corden and Barry sleeping under a mattress gave me great material to write the fairy tale that I entertained myself writing in my head:
The Princess and the Pea
Once upon a time, in a land far away (Australia), there lived (until June) a beautiful princess called Bex Hoare . One day, Trent Michael Berrill came a knocking on Reef Backpackers's door.
"Please let me stay the night... it's the wet season and I've got puddles in my socks!"
But Dave, the hostel owner, thought he had a suspicious resemblance to Simon, so he agreed but only on the condition that he slept UNDER 100 mattresses with a pea in his belly button. He slept the whole night through! Surely if he really was Simon, he would have started free style rapping and being all 4 heads in the Queen 'Bohemian Rhapsody'! Bex was duly impressed, and so ditched James Corden and moved to 'Straya forever and never saw Alice Guilbert or Laura 'Nutmeg' Burr again :( except when she came back which we all celebrated and declared a public holiday. The End
After I had finished, I went back to one of the shops I visited yesterday to buy the top I had seen and didn't buy, and also some new going out sandals. The ones I ended up with were more expensive than I had wanted to spend, but they seem like they'll last me a long, long time and are very, very comfy! Me and Bex were going to walk to the botanical gardens, but Toys 'R' Us phoned her and asked her to work.
It was Guy's (the Israeli Night porter; not sure if I have mentioned this enough time for it to get in Dad's head who Guy is, so that he'll stop telling me to explain who people are) birthday, so me, Alice and him went to the Thai restaurant just around the corner to the hostel. I couldn't choose between the Pad Thai or the Papaya salad with prawns, but since Alice chose the Pad Thai, I didn't want to be boring and just have the same! Guy had Pad Kai- I'm not really sure how this differed from Pad Thai, since the Pad Thai was supposed to have chicken in, and Kai is the Thai word for chicken. It was very yummy, and Guy may have a trial next week, because he was talking Hebrew to the Hebrew speaking waiter.
I had tried to organise a work night out (we only ever seem to go out for people's last nights, which is a negative thing- I wanted to go out to celebrate how fun a group of people we all are!) but no-one apart from Emilie (the Swede) and Aaron (from the kitchen) were keen, so we just drank at the hostel.
