Fortunately the weather for the last two days has been beautiful. I decided to get out of the house and take a bike ride (an awesome Kiwi lent me a bike for the semester!) I planned to take the trails up to the top of Signal Hill and enjoy the nice view with the amazing weather. Turned out I took the wrong trail to get to the top and practically walked up more than half of it... Wasn't that much fun getting up there (Took over an hour and a half). Finally I made it to the top! And don't the clouds roll in and block the entire view of the city. At this point I was not the happiest of sorts (Kiwi lingo). I headed back down the same way I came up (which was the proper way) and the crazy 15 minute ride back down through the trails made the whole trip worth it!

Looking back on it now I really do feel kind of bad for the rest of the other non-university students that were on the tour. It definitely turned into a competition right away between our group to see who could be the "King of the Speights tour" (or the biggest idiot hogging the beer tap). It actually worked out in our groups favor to go on the tour with an older crowd because they distracted the tour guide (who gets paid to drink beer!) while we subtly tried to drink the factory dry. Overall we had 36 minutes of unlimited drinking and within that time I placed second in being the closest one to the drunkest idiot (my parents would be so proud). It was such a blast, I highly recommend the tour.
"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."
After the tour our flat had a large gathering of sorts with a hat and wig theme! I would say between the tour and some of the ridiculous hats that I got to witness afterwards it was a fantastic night! (Poor Laura left her laundry on the clothes line to dry, forgot to take it down and some jerk stole her size 7.5 skate shoes!?!)
I'm now off to bed, got to wake up early for the Silver Peaks tramp we are doing tomorrow.
