When we’re in high school, we can’t wait for the day we turn 18 so we can finally leave that hellhole and go clubbing every weekend. But after a decade of hard partying and drinking, there’s one particular party that will really grab your party veteran attention: your high school reunion. Circle of life stuff right here; you’ve gone back to school!
If there’s one industry out there that’s both grueling and monotonous, it’s hospitality. Whether you’re one of the waiting staff, a barista, or in the kitchen, it’s hard yakka. I’ve been a kitchenhand on and off since late 2007, so I know what I’m talking about. Many a dish have been scrubbed with my suddy hands.
Ah, celebrities. No matter what they’re famous for, you can’t help but see their faces plastered everywhere from newspapers, the internet and trashy magazines like New Idea. It doesn’t even matter how famous a celebrity (if they can be called that) is, whether they’re on the Hollywood A-List, rock stars or a cast member of an Aussie soapie, they’ll appear somewhere.
I’m not a big techno fan by any stretch of the imagination, I’m definitely more of a rock guy. I went to the Royal Melbourne Hotel‘s Bang! night two weeks earlier, with a cover band playing the likes of Green Day and Blink 182, so when I went to see techno DJ Max Cooper strut his stuff on the turntable, I knew I might as well have been in a whole other nightclub.
We all go out on the weekend to party away and have a great night out. But you know who doesn’t get to have a great Friday or Saturday night? Doctors and ambos. They’ve already got a miserable job as it is, and we go and rub it in by seeing them because of the result of our stupid, yet fun, drunken antics. You can imagine how jelly they must get.
People can really be shallow tools at times. Though I don’t think I’m the worst looking guy in the world, I’m a million light years away from being anything resembling Channing Tatum in the looks department, so I’m definitely not one of those “hunky” guys girls like. I won’t lie, I never really got too far with girls in clubs, with both having a gut and only being average looking (at best).
Engineers turned beer brewers Patrick Alè and David Milstein founded Red Island Group in 2003 when they were only 23 years old. After ten years of developing the business, their brew Quiet Deeds has made a buzz in the craft beer scene, and is growing a wider audience all the time.
Guys, was there ever a time back in high school when a hot chick asked to use your rubber and you wanted to say to her, ‘I wouldn’t mind using a rubber on you’? Or is it just me? I assume that, unless you were the Brad Pitt of your school, that she would have slapped you silly for saying something as awesome as this.
Some people may feel that going out partying for ANZAC Day might be disrespectful to the men and women who died fighting in war serving our country. Yes, many died in the various wars Australia (and New Zealand for that matter) have fought in over the years and that’s terrible, and businesses close for a day just so we can pay our respects to them.
Don’t you hate it when unwelcome idiots intrude in on your party and spoil it for everyone, especially if it’s someone you know and aren’t friends with? And by friends, I mean the original definition of the word in that it’s someone you’re close to, not a so-called “friend” on Facebook you haven’t seen in three or more years.
