"...everyone taking control of me, seems that the world's got a role for me..."

Today, someone that I know was having a hard time with being here in Australia and away from home and everything safe and it made me think. Nothing worth doing is easy. If I came here and everyday was amazing than this experience wouldn’t make me grow. So, with each challenge or random asthma attack, it just makes me a more well-rounded individual and for that, I have to be grateful. This past week, work made me crazy, some new friends had to say goodbye, and I went on a whale watching tour. Firstly, never eat Chinese food and ice cream and then hop in a small boat and go watch whales on the mighty Pacific Ocean. It will never be ok. Ever. Secondly, the whales on my tour must have taken a Xanax before I got there because they barely lifted their whale asses out of the water. I was a bit disappointed. Technically, I saw them but they didn’t frolic in the sea and then jump over a large mound of rocks like “Free Willy” did. Disappointing. My adventurous story for this week comes from my train ride home from work today. I get on the train and grab a seat and beside me is a drunk, Aboriginal man. He looks at me and says, “I am a funny man. Don’t be scared of the dark!” and then laughs. He then yells out, “My name is Allah!” I look away and mind my own business as he stammers along about how he needs a lady and then I see water dripping down the seat. I go to move and then look up and see that that water is dripping from the old man’s genital region! He pissed himself on the train beside me! I jumped like a cat. I don’t know that I have ever moved that fast in my life. What the hell is wrong with me? These random people find me! Or, do I find them? I have always had crazy people do random stuff in front of me. It is my curse or, is it my blessing? So, let’s recap, in the past week an Aboriginal has nearly pissed on me, a girl threw gum and hit me in the face, a drunk Irish guy pulled a chair up at my table and vomited on himself, and I got the Swine flu. Welcome to my Australian life!

You did much better than I would have on the whale tour. I would've puked all over the place. And all that hard work and not so much as a high flip of the tail to make the boat ride worth it. Pssshh. Silly whales. Anyway, just wanted to say I hope things get better for you (and maybe less wacko adventures with crazies - though they do make for very interesting reading!). But you, like me, seem to attract the more interesting folk and their bizarre behaviors so I have a feeling there will be more to come. :) Stay warm!

HAHAHAHHAHAHA! Oh my God. I just noticed one of your adds is a link to click for info on RASHES! Bwwhahahahahah! Oh how that story about the man yelling about his wife's intimate business is still cracking me up.
