Random Trivia Roadtrip

On Friday the 26th of February 2014, Amie and I took a spontaneous trip to Hobart (I should mention this is a two hour drive), full of awesomeness.

I’m going to explain.

In a bid to promote gambling to Launcestonians, a half work day is given in February to celebrate the Launceston Cup. I’m not complaining. Anyway, I was held up for 12 minutes at work before I could leave, so I could sign something off that needed to be checked that day. Then I decided to go to a corner shop and buy a pie for lunch. If neither of those things happened, I may not have run into Amie, who was rummaging through my mail box (I’m going to purposely not explain that, because Amie is a creeper).

Amie wanted to go to the beach.

But I said no because it was too windy.

Later on we were talking about trivia team names, then our mutual friend in Hobart who does trivia too. Then Amie suggested we should go to Hobart sometime to play trivia with said friend.

I said no.

We should go tonight!

That was the easy part, getting people to go with us was tricky. The friend we mentioned in Hobart was playing basketball, and couldn’t make it. That didn’t matter, our hearts were set. Amie immediately called Cam, who was not at all impressed with our plan, and said it was a stupid idea. I called Jamie, who must have collaborated with Cam, because for some reason he had a very similar response, it was weird.

We called Bluey, he was at work. We called Stephan, he didn’t answer. We called our friend Diane in Hobart, who was terribly concerned for our mental wellbeing that we wanted to drive two hours and back, just to play trivia, but said she would come.

Long story short we bullied our boyfriends into coming. And, I choose to believe, they secretly jumped on the trivia train of excitement.

At 5pm, our trivia team, Off In Church was on the road.

*barely able to contain my excitement of my hilarity*

Then Cam got mad about me making fun of his hobbies, and I felt bad, so the next hour and a half was awkward.

Once we got into the city of Hobart, Cam tried to kill us all as my punishment for being mean, by basically jumping the car off a road-ramp at high speed.
Then we worked out we were ok.

The food was delicious, and the other teams were young, so we were in with a fighting chance without old people ruining it by knowing everything.

*barely able to contain my excitement of my hilarity*

Then I felt bad about my insensitivity, until a minute or so later, Jamie said: 

At half time Cam had an announcement

There was an uncomfortable silence, until the hipster on the table next to us erupted in laughter.

Until he was in tears.

This is Amie now....

We ended up coming first or second overall, which we were pretty excited about.

Until we found out the prize was tickets for a gig in Hobart.

Now I think that Amber understated the amount of whinging, pleading, crying, begging, moaning, bargaining, sulking and persuading that went into getting the boys to come to Hobart with us. There was a LOT of it. They really didn't want to go.

On the way home Cam made some negative remark about the trip.

And I laughed all the way home.

Bogan Bingo

What is a bogan? A bogan is an easy going, white trash Australian. The term can be affectionate or derogatory.
I have invented a game, where you go to your nearest bad neighbourhood, take this card with you (I would say hide it in the book but you might get stabbed for being a nerd), and play a good game of Bogan Bingo!

Disclaimer: please don't kill me, this is a joke. I wear slipper boots and.. know someone who owns Australia thongs.
Also I literally don't own any of these pictures. Don't sue me please.

Things I don't like.

The other day I got into my time machine and travelled to the future to read one of Amber's posts, where she talked about how Pulp Fiction is one of her favourite movies, and I rolled my eyes.
I have a habit of disliking things that most normal people seem to love. Pulp Fiction being one of them. I think that Pulp Fiction, and Tarantino in general, are overrated. Everyone else seems to think that ERHMAHGERD IT'S THE BEST MOVIE EVERRRR

Here are some more things that I don't like, that everyone else loves:

A day in the life of Cam and I

So I posted this to youtube and facebook, but forgot to post it on the actual blog because I'm awesome.

I downloaded a sleep recording app to see if I actually snore like "A herd of elephants on tractors going up a hill followed by a marching band"

 .... Yes, I do :(

BUT it also recorded this the other night, and when I heard it in the morning I replayed it about ten times because it was just that funny. So I turned it into a quick video so that you guys can see that while Cam has to put up with my snoring, I have to put up with THIS.

Holy Crap I'm Going to Uni

In April I made the huge (to me) decision to go to uni, and get a Bachelor of Business. My decision was based approximately 90% on wanting a legitimate reason to have a study in my house and 10% to have a better job etc etc.

I’m doing business, because art degrees are worth less than the paper they are printed on, I don’t like science or medicine etc.. I’m sure there are other types of degrees but that’s ok. Business will be fine.

I used to want to be an accountant, I did actually type up a blog about it but it came out too bitter and ranty, so if I make it funnier I might publish it. Right now I want to get into marketing. This may be largely influenced by Mad Men, so when a tv show about economics or HR becomes popular I might change my major.

A Guide To Tasmania.. Kind Of

I have previously written A Guide To Australia.. Kind Of, and as it has been one of my most popular posts, I thought I might write a follow up.

This is Tasmania:

Tasmania is an island state under mainland Australia. It’s the Buster Bluth of Australia, tiny little retarded (literally if you believe the incest nonsense) baby state. Even Amie didn’t know it existed.
