The wedding, the real reason I came to Sydney, was yesterday.  The ceremony was very nice, if a little interesting: Australian priests are much more, well, humorous than Americans.  Included in the service were lines about the thousands of girls the groom had to disappoint, and the fact that even people overseas were chasing the bride.  The reception was in a beautiful location, almost right under the famous Harbour Bridge.  The bride's family (I'm friends with the bride) is half Chinese/Irish and the groom is all Irish, but of course everyone's Australian now.  The point is, there was freely flowing large qualities of alcohol at all times.  I had to really pace myself, or I'd have been out of the picture by 3PM.  As it was, everyone began drinking at around 11AM, and between the reception, the after reception meet-up at the Park Hyatt, pre-club drinking in my friend Mike's hotel room, and the club itself, I didn't get done until 1AM. 

Then many unpleasant things occurred including:

Helping the maid of honor get a cab for one block because she wore the same one day old heels all day long.
Losing the key to my locker at the hostel, requiring a broken lock and more money spent ;_;
Being nearly afraid to sleep because of his damn cold and not wanting to go through the not breathing thing.
Crushing my eyeglasses by putting them in a really freaking stupid place.
And everyone's favorite, the reversal of fortune.

Today is the St. Patrick's Day Parade here.  It's also a great looking day for visiting Koala bears at the preserve and then going to north Bondi beach to visit the beautiful people in their preserve.  What will I be doing? Looking for an eyeglases reair shop -_-;;

Saw Watchmen, I'll probably go see it again just for the A-Ma-Zing opening credits.  Tried to go to the aquarium, but the monorail runs in the wrong (right+long) direction....will try again tomorrow.  Shopping? but I don't really have much of a shopping budget for this trip ^^;;  I see it's daylight saving time now at home, lucky for me, I lose that hour when I fly back.

Hmmm...still raining....what do you guys like to do on rainy days?
