You know, we didn't really have much huggings. And there was no orgasmising either.

I think someone may have mentioned it while we were discussing smoking jackets after dinner but it didn't eventuate. We got icecream though, shortly before we got our photo taken on the escalator.

Twas a joke; read the topic title. It would normally be organising, but its orgasmising for extra punningness.

Yeah, we usually steer away from 18+ things because there are so many of you that would be left out of that. Sp00n, we also quite often do daytime picnic type arrangements on a Sunday so that is quite parent-friendly as well. Also I'm almost a teacher, that goes down well, right? :P

We never saw strep throat.
For some reason, throat took me multiple tries to spell; I kept thinking 'throaght'.

I propose a new spelling, someone contact the Macquarie Dictionary people! A giant plush strep throat would be cool. I saw an ebola one once, I wanted it so bad but got distracted by shiny.

Strep throat? I think I saw a relative of theirs at the National Computer Science School. Though admittedly an ebola one would be awesome.

I know, I can't believe I forgot strep throat again. I don't teach anywhere yet! But I study at Macquarie and I will be teaching English eventually.

Oh, okay - I must have misheard something at the time.

There -was- some talk of it, but too many underage people, or people who could not afford to drink, or people who were not feeling well and did not want to stay much longer, or could not drink at all for medical reasons kinda tipped the balance.

I don't think -almost- a teacher quite has the effect Tegan seems to think it does.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I'd prefer a daytime rampage next time. I got home after 11:30 four days in a row last week.

Also, Hermaj, congrats on your blueness.

And I tell my parents I'm going to see people from the internet.

Yeah, I tell my family I'm seeing internet people too. They're actually quite proud of it, my mother is all "at least you're going out", and my Nanna even mentioned something about me being the only female moderator in the southern hemisphere in my scrapbook for my 21st. (I totally am, guys! How awesome is that?) Mum's met Brendan and Jordon anyway so she's not at all bothered.

And thankyou, Megan! Blue is a pretty sexy colour. I am celebrating my retirement by crunching Maltesers and admiring the gorgeously clutterless fora. Or forum, to be truthful. Also I think being almost a teacher counts. There's a big difference between being able to maybe teach some things and being able to maybe perform some surgeries. You won't die if I maybe steer you wrong about semicolons. (I will not steer you wrong about semicolons.) And the red squishy thing is strep throat. How did he get in there?

I didn't get home from the lunch I went to with friends that day until Saturday afternoon. :(

I'm so tired.

So, yeah. Is Gojoe's the next one, and when is that?

He said in about 2 months from mid-Feb. Which should be mid-April. Someone (Everyone) should pm him and ask him if he's still coming.

Well, you sort of need Steam to play any of the Half-Life related games, last I checked... buy it in the shops, and the CD will have Steam on it.

Though, if you own a 360, there's an alternative... 'Kipedia says there's a PS3 version of the Orange Box too (but no standalone Portal). But take it from someone who's played both the PC and 360 versions - it's playable on a console, but you really want mouse control for this one.
