Tour was great. I spent lots of time dancing, and playing, and talking to kids who I will miss heaps, and hanging with cool year 12 people, and fighting with Ken, and learning how to shuffle cards with one hand. We won Priest of the Parish. We adopted Lachlan as an honorary year 12 student.
It was weird, though, because we were under so much control compared to schoolies. But then I guess it doesn’t matter really.
I got to talk heaps with the music directors, especially JO. I’m sort of sad that it’s finishing, but not absolutely depressed. Playing music is great, but I’m glad I’d already resigned myself to being a mediocre musician with no opportunities for ensemble participation after high school. Cause if I didn’t I would have been very upset.
I have 95 photos from tour, but I won’t post any more up, cause it might make the computer loading slow down.
And on to today’s saga…
I left the house at 2:45 today and met Jon and Sarah at Strathfield. We were on our way to Bankstown to see Crying Out Loud (again… I think that I might see them too much. rest assured there will be a similar entry next week). And Bankstown was cool, cause we met Lauren and her sister 😀
The band was already on the stage when we got there, but they spent ages warming up. We sat amidst large jigsaw puzzles that kids were putting together.
Then we tried to help the puzzle police put one together. They didn’t warm to our efforts to help out.
When Crying Out Loud were introduced, we moved towards the stage and applauded and yelled etc. Steve introduced the band and then looked over at us and said: “Hi to the guys from Croydon… Spally…”
And we got balloons.
They finished playing after 20 minutes. So to fill the rest of the afternoon
