TODAY WE HAD A
BIT OF LUCK! WE DIDN’T
GET THE LAUNDRY JOB, LINDA
HAD TO GO TO THE DOCTOR TO
FIND OUT ABOUT A RASH ON HER
TUMMY ( WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE
TOTALLY HARMLESS) AND THINGS WERE LOOKING GRIM.
Then Denise, a Belgian girl, came to tell Linda the place she works needs a part-time helper so she went & got the job – YAY!! We went to the Reef Bar for a “Cocktail Promotion”¹ organized by the dickhead from A-la-carte² and “starring” two dickhead cocktail bar idiots. We got out without paying for any drinks except one!! Linda and I walked up to “The Age”³ & bought a copy of Saturday’s paper “hot off the press”, & went through circling likely jobs.
¹ The movie Cocktail had just been released and the western world had gone crazy for themed cocktail bars where the bartenders threw things around and juggled bottles.
² The catering company that had organized the New Year’s Eve bash for the Estonian fat cats.
³ Melbourne’s main daily newspaper
