Well, next week is uni break for me. I can totally come up then and hang for a day. This week less so.

just got back from the revue.

i saw megan's name in the back of the show guide (death is a rather grim surname).
at the curtain call they called for costuming and some brunette girl with glasses ran across the stage. ahaha. i was totally expecting megan.

ah well. not a bad revue, probably better than last year.

Did anyone else watch "World's Most Amazing Videos: Nature" last night? There were a few videos from a dust storm somewhere else... Methinks FOX8 can now predict the future...

It was stunning, it really was. Hay guiyz! I would like to take Mr Mojo Gojoe to the beach sometime soon. Since he is staying near Hornsby, I was thinking we could hit up one of the North Shore or Central Coast beaches? I am quite familiar with Umina since I have family there and stay there on holiday pretty often, but that might be too far out of the way for everyone but phlip. Though it would suit the Novacastrians for a day trip, would it not? Thinking on the spot... I do not know when people's university breaks are! Who is free during the day next week? Otherwise, we can go this Sunday the 27th to whatever beach people decide. Democracy, yo! (Umina has pretty rock pools, if that is your thing...)

Also we are going to Featherdale to see koalas next week sometime.

I am on break from uni as of approximately now, but I'm utterly penniless until mid-next week. I'll probably be up for a trip down southwards after then, though.

Beach beach! <3

I'm cool with a beach trip on Sunday. I'll be covered in white body paint which I'll need to wash off. Also, I love the beach.

Sunday I will be recovering from a poker night at my place so I doubt that I can make it sorry :(.

By the way, people are free to attend, but it requires you coming down to the gong so i doubt anyone will be interested.

I'm good for the beach tomorrow. Either Manly or Bondi, I guess? I have not been to Bondi ever which is a pretty poor effort for a born and raised Sydney lady. Also I will change the title thingy!

Woohoo I've been there once! At night... Still a pretty poor effort...

Besides which, everyone knows Manly is better, mainly due to better ice cream availability. Also, if it's Manly I shall reward you with some of my three thousand modeling balloons.

Apart from the teenaged trashbags, Coogee is my favourite.

I think the point of Manly and Bondi were that they are easier to get to with public transport.

The Queenscliff end is nicer than the Manly end.

Well, Manly tomorrow, weather permitting? My number is 0423 983 022 if you guys want to message me and see what's happening. I'll be there early because my mother is going on a walk around Watson's Bay and I might walk with her, but maybe around 12. We can get fish and chips and stuff!

Awesome. I can be there whenever others arrive - any idea what time you'd like to arrive, others?

EDIT: I don't care too much about it being a public forum, but just to make it more fun...

My number is 2*7*79*392099. Hope you've got a calculator handy, or are really good at mental arithmetic.

Well I will defiantly be there. Matt and Kneel (that is totally how he spells his name, not Neil) will be with me, but might leave early.

People should come!! Things will be awesome! Also people that can not make it on tomorrow, we should all go to Featherdale sometime next week :) I am going with Tegan, Matt and Kneel sometime next week. If people went, it would be awesome.

Guys, it is supposed to be cold and rainy tomorrow, so Drew and I are considering a museum crawl instead. Text me if you want in and we'll play it by ear. :D I am not worried about the number because people who have no cause to see it would be unlikely to encounter it. Also I will take it off tomorrow. It is a limited time offer!
