We're hiding!!!

What do you do when you're trying to procrastinate in the law library?

You try and jam one of your friends into the book compactus of course!!!

Emma and I were meant to be working on our Labour Law essays.... but we were getting bored. It was hard to concentrate, and when we walked to the compactus to get some journals.... well.... we decided there were better things to do.

It's amazing! Emma can fit PERFECTLY into one of the compactus shelves. I even closed up the entire shelving line on her so that she couldn't get out! I tried to get in myself after she had climbed out... but I couldn't fit.....

Loosen up baby!!!!

WOW! How often is it that you get to go to a lecture given by SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR!!!

First EVER female Justice of the US Supreme Court! I went to the lecture, and I wasn't disappointed at all. She is amazing. Amazingly intelligent, so quick and she has a wit to match. Listening to her answer questions at the end was hilarious, she is a little sarcastic and doesn't take any garbage from anyone!

Even the people around her see the need to bow to her feet!

Happy Birthday Sarah!!!

Sarah turned 30!!! For such a big occasion, her family held a party and invited me. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to bake a couple of pies and to take them over to their place.

After all.... pies would be a great dessert for the nice simple gathering of family and friends right!?

Oh how wrong I was.... this was not a simple gathering by any means.

As you can now see from the pictures of the family as well as the picture of Angus and Sam, I made a slight misjudgment. This was no simple gathering of friends and family for some food on the BBQ.... oh no.... this was a true Comyns family party! I really should have known better. Unfortunately for me, I arrived at the party in a pair of jeans and an old t-shirt. Thankfully, a VERY SHOCKED looking Angus quickly dragged me upstairs and kitted me out in some of his clothes. Now dressed up with a collar, I was able to go down and confront the party and all of its fun and fare.

Doesn't Sarah look gorgeous with her mother?

There was even a large marquee set up behind Dave and Angus' house. The night turned out to be great fun! The food was amazing and the wine was flowing. The middle son Scott is a wine maker in the Hunter Valley as well, so he set up the party with cases of amazing wine that he brought with him. I may have had a few drinks.... but only a few....

I think I stumbled off at around 2 or 3 am... I forget these minor details.
