Getting a call at 5am
can be very frightening
's mobile rang this morning, waking us up an hour
and a half before the alarm
was supposed to go off.
'Who the hell could that be?
ed it to her message service
, and, when a message notification
arrived, listened to it. She tells me she heard her mum talking to somebody,
'Well, where does her boyfriend live?'
(Oh my god somebody's after me - wait, don't be an idiot who'd be after you?)
She tries to call her house, and as she does, my mobile
number. I reject
the call, so that Anna can try to get through. Heart
(What the hell could be wrong, did somebody die?)
Anna finally gets through to her mother
. I listen to her side of the conversation
, waiting to here what's happened.
'Yeh, I'm at Ben's. Out the front. Buckmaster Drive. OK, I'll check.
She hangs up.
are at my house, they've apparently found my car in the middle of an intersection
. I'm going up the front to see if the car is there.'
. We don't need this. Kind of relieved
though, that it wasn't something worse. We walk up the front, sure enough, the car isn't there. We go back inside, Anna calls the Mooroolbark
police, who apparently found the car. They don't know much (in fact, less than nothing, they told us it had been in an accident
, which it hadn't). Call the Doncaster
police, they don't know much. Wait for them to call back.
We're not going to get any more sleep, are we. *yawn
Finally get onto somebody at the police station
'Shit, we have to move it out of the intersection before they send somebody to tow it.
I wake up Dad, and he drives us down there, so we can push it off the road. Luckily it's a small, and subsequently
light car. Open the bonnet, seems they've connected jumper cables
from the battery
to the coil
. (Whatever that is, I don't know cars. Is that how you jump start
the car. Figured it would be a good idea.
Finally, get dropped off at the station. Her parents are going to deal with it from here.
So, there we go. Fun morning. I really need sleep.
Funnily enough, while Anna
was at the car with her dad, somebody who lives down the street
stopped and told them his car had also been stolen
last night, and had been wrapped around a pole
. I imagine Anna's car conked
out on whoever stole it, either because the coil
died (she found out that's why it wouldn't start), or they ran out of petrol
doesn't work), and they proceeded to steal this guy's car. Asshole
Anyway, other than that excitement, I had a good weekend. Didn't have band practise
, it wasn't organised properly, so Jay
and I went to see 'Rock Star
'. Didn't suck. We had a barbeque
at our house that night, to celebrate my sister finishing her VCE
, which was cool. Anna couldn't come, unfortunately, because she was working
Anna came over yesterday, however, with a stack of video
s, so we got to sit around in my room all afternoon, watching Lethal Weapon
movies. Which is exactly how I like to spend my Sunday
We had a good talk last night, too, about various subjects... mostly the fears
we have about our relationship
, and how paranoid
we can both be... also some great reminiscing
of when we were in our 'flirting
' stage, at the end of last year. I'm so in love.
And now, a couple of hours left of work, and I get to see her again, to watch Boston Public
at her place, and sleep on the floor of her computer
room. (Her parents won't let us share a bed, heh)
Bah, Boston Public wasn't on, some Michael Jackson concert was. We watched Lethal Weapon 3. Not that you're interested.
