well friday & saturday totally sucked for me. Went to the BDO on Friday, met up with Mat from my band & we checked out the Shiny Brights who were awesome. Miranda, our singer, was coming with her boyfriend Rob & a couple of other mates at 12pm to catch Birds of Tokyo. when they weren't there by 20 past 12, i gave her a ring. She said they would be a while still...since their next door neighbour died that morning & Rob's mum found her. They were talking to the cops & ambulance people. anyway they eventually get there at 1:30pm & we have a great day watching some awesome bands. I had to work Saturday so I headed off at 11pm, i offered to give the guys a lift but they said they wanted to walk through town to get home so i left them & went home. Saturday morning I get a phone call: Miranda, Mat & Rob were assaulted Friday night about 2 hours after I saw them while walking home. Basicly some guy just started chatting to them, asked how the BDO was etc, and then invited them to his place. when Miranda said 'nah mate, i'm going home I'm tired' the guy flipped & started smacking them out. He punched Mat in the face twice, when Miranda went to help Mat he smacked her in the face & broke her nose, and then when Rob tried to help her & get the guy to stop, he punched him in the face too. Rob fell down, hit his head on a railing, and while he was on the ground the guy kicked him in the head. They managed to all get up, ran to a cab with the guy chasing them. the attacker got in anothe cab so Rob rang the cops & gave them the cab's licence plate. To the South AUstralian Police Force's credit, the guy was arrested in 10 mins. Meanwhile, Mat has a fat lip, Miranda's nose is broken, and Rob as a black eye & fat lip. they got patched up & made reports to the cops, the attacker is charged with assault & is being held until his bail hearing. pretty shitty end to a good day. then to cap it all off, one of our friends died suddenly of a brain haemorrage on the weekend too. He's a computer consultant & was in Johanesburg for work & discovered dead in his hotel room. He was 35. I'd like a reset button for the weekend please.
