wearing my flag:)

A bunch of us met downstairs of the hostel at like 11am to go to St. Kilda beach. There was like 10 of us at least it was awesome. We took the 'free' tram there, hehe and got to the beach at like noonish. It was really hot out and we walked along the beach for quite a while before picking a spot to stop. We tanned/burnt there for a while, went for a swim and then headed onwards. We seperated from some other people so it was just me, Nick, Andy, Angela, Amber and Steve now. We had ice cream and pop at this little stand by the beach and then decided to eat some lunch. St. Kilda is a really cool area of town, I liked it a lot. Me, ANdy and Steve went to Nando's and the rest went up to the Spud bar for a baked potato. Nando's was delicious. After Nando's we headed back to the hostel and got there at like 5 I think.

mm goon...
I went on the internet for a bit and then went up to my room. Nick and I split a 5 liter box of goon which was effing nasty. But cheap. I put on my Aussie flag, we took the goon and went upstairs to the roof.

There was a lot of people up there it was really fun. I sat with a bunch of English people and some Canadians and we just talked and drank and chilled out for a long time. Amber turned my flag into a dress for me to wear which was awesome! I drank way to much goon though...that stuff is sick. We watched the fireworks at fed square from the roof for a while. Everyone kind of dispersed after that. Nick was getting sick and I think Amber and Angela passed out haha. Me, Andy, and 2 English girls Clare and Michelle went over to another bar for a bit. If I remember correctly I phoned Richard from Brisbane and made a huge ass of myself. Good times. It was a really fun day though!

Aahh the dreaded goon.. I never touch that stuff... unless we're playing goon-of-fortune. Hope you experienced that one!
