Losing sucks. Always has. Always will. Twenty-two did tonight. One didn’t. Luna’s Castle Ping Pong Championships 2009. Needless to say, we’re not the most intelligent bunch. We spent as much time trying to create a workable bracket for the ping-pong tourney as we did actually playing the matches. Nevertheless, we took a typical, dull Wednesday night and kicked it in the ass. It might as well have been a Friday – ping pong balls whizzing at high velocity in every direction, sore losers rolling around on the floor, victory dances on the tabletops. It’s cool to see something created out of nothing. No expectations. No preparations. I suppose that’s the essence of a hostel…unexpected events at unexpected times. Cheers to Wednesday night and a tiny white ball.
