So what the hell happened to you?

I got humdingered by the f*cking kids outside.

Nice, wish I could've seen that.


Hey do you want a drink?

A water would be nice, yeah.

- There you go.

- Thanks.

Hey do you want to come back to work?

We're short staffed.

It's actually not a really bad idea.

Could make good money again, have some fun.

Yeah, I don't have anything better to do.

That job I was gonna take, remember?

That fell through like every other f*cking job

that I was gonna take.

And I can't even get pissed about it

because it's not like someone beat me to the job

they're just not f*cking hiring people anymore

so now the money the money that my parents loaned me

for the house I can't pay back

and I have to break the news to them tomorrow

which means of course my mom's gonna be like,

"well you're gonna have to take the job with your dad

'cause you're obviously incapable

of getting a grownup job by yourself."

So yeah.

Actually working here sounds good.

Actually I meant tonight.

I want to get the f*ck out of here.

Oh. Hell no bitch.

Thanks, thanks a lot.

I can't I actually have a party going on

at my place right now.

Oh, so that's where our usual suspects are.

Yeah, drinking at my place

and getting on my f*cking nerves.

Hey I'm running late mom, I can't talk long.

Well I just wanted to see

if I could count on your help with dinner tomorrow.

Your dad has to go get grandma so he won't be much use

and you know grandma won't me much use.

I will be up late, but I will be there.

You know I could really use your help tonight.

We've been over this, you've known about this for a while.

It's the biggest party night of the year.

Aren't your friends in town to see their family?

I don't know why you have to throw a party

the night before Thanksgiving.

No because everyone's coming back into town.

You know and who knows how long

we'll be able to do this years from now.

Yeah everybody's getting older,

they're all gonna start having their own families.

One would hope.

And Kelsey's coming back into town

and I haven't seen her in forever.

I know, I know, the sister you never had.

You know this is kind of a house warming party for me too.

You know hardly anybody's seen the house.

Okay, okay-

yeah, well this is the only night I get to hang out

with my friends from out of town.

I mean who knows it might be our last Drinksgiving like ever.

That name sounds terrible.

I didn't invent it, that's just what they call it.

You should just be happy

I'm not driving around going to bars,

I'm having an adult party for grownups.

And you took Mr. Whiskers

- somewhere safe I assume?

- Oi course.

Promise me you're not gonna show up

hung-over again for dinner smelling like a brewery.

No but I know someone who will.

Oh, hey mom can I call you back, Jake's calling.

Okay, love you, bye.

You have money right?


You don't think people are expecting anything other

than like beer and wine right?

Mixers, random snacks, no, no.

I don't think anyone's expecting a big spread.

Not like we're having tomorrow.

You're still coming over right?

Yeah, of course.

Good, 'cause I just really need you to be the buffer

between me and the family this year.

Lam well aware.



And while you say you want me as a buffer

after coming out.

I'm willing to bet

this will be another lame attempt

at setting me up with Griff.

Am I right?

No that's actually gonna happen tonight.

Yeah I invited some other people too.

Uh huh.

Clean up, clean up.

What about you, you're single.

I don't see anybody trying to set you up

John Forrest

John Forrest, 1st Baron Forrest of Bunbury (22 August 1847 – 2 September 1918) was an Australian explorer, the first Premier of Western Australia and a cabinet minister in Australia's first federal parliament.As a young man, he won fame as an explorer by leading three expeditions into the interior of Western Australia, for which he was awarded the 1876 Royal Geographical Society's Patron's Medal.He was appointed Surveyor General and in 1890 became the first Premier of Western Australia, its only premier as a self-governing colony. Forrest's premiership gave the state ten years of stable administration during a period of rapid development and demographic change. He pursued a policy of large-scale public works and extensive land settlement, and he helped to ensure that Western Australia joined the federation of Australian states. After federation, he moved to federal politics, where he was at various times postmaster-general, Minister for Defence, Minister for Home Affairs, Treasurer and acting Prime Minister. He was affiliated with the Protectionist Party from 1901 to 1906, the Western Australian Party from 1906 to 1909, the Commonwealth Liberal Party from 1909 to 1917, then the Nationalist Party of Australia from 1917 to 1918.Shortly before his death, Forrest was informed that the King had approved his elevation to the British peerage as Baron Forrest of Bunbury. more…
