This weekend has been crazy. I worked three times at Dandelion and worked from 6:30-3:30am for a catering company last night.
The catering job was so, so much fun, but it was really long! Wow! We got the job through Oli, a MC polo player, and we worked for a set of twins’ 21st birthday bash. The party was absolutely fantastic. It was a black tie event with a DJ, open bar, and a fully catered menu. (In Australia, the driving age and legal drinking age is both 18 years.) The party that we worked at had to have cost at least $100,000. No joke! The family had some serious coin. Apparently that party was high end, but 21st birthday parties are typically celebrated in a similar fashion. It was much different than 21st birthdays in the US! After so much work since I first arrived, I think I’m almost even with my initial expenses! Yay!
And now, Its definitely bed time. 🙂
Alicia’s American Word of the Day (that Aussies do not understand!!): scrimmage. Aussie word for scrimmage: practice game.
(the story: I told a coworker at the catering event that I was excited to finally play a water polo game on Tuesday, but that I am also nervous because we have never scrimmaged on the same team. I had to figure out a way to explain scrimmaging! It was weird!)
