You all look like you are having too much fun for just four people. This fun must be spread around more!

For how long do you need somewhere, and when?

You're right that you'll have serious trouble finding anywhere affordable and available at the moment, but you might be able to stay here if none of my other flatmates have anyone already here at that time. I probably can't do a week long thing, just because that's too much to ask of everyone else.

actually, if anyone will let me just dump my stuff at their house at about noon untill i:
a] find a place to spend the night
b] pick it up in the morn after a night of adventure
that would be great, it's just a huge back pack.

I'm afraid there's still no way I could have anyone staying with me at all, and I don't know anyone else who could play host...

My worldly wealth is now less than the train ticket would be. In fact, it's less than the bus to the station would be, so um. I'm probably not going to be there.

Hey, hey hey! I didn't say I was out completely (or maybe I did).

Basically, i'm being flaky and saying 'possibly', so I can see what my monetary/possible working situation is like next week.

Don't worry, I won't be actively trying to seduce anyone, so my charm'll be at around 50%, which is somewhere around vaguely resistable.

Y'know, if that's what you were worrying about.

Heey, I'm not a definitely out either! Everything depends on what's being done by you lot and how badly I'm tied up here. I might at least be able to come in and say hi, even if I can't stay for long.
