I will be there! Brendan will be there or I will beat him up. My friend Alex will come but he no longer has scary hair. I am sorry.

*grumble* sorry, I just realised I can't go :(

It would be nice if the next meetup could be not in the city so I don't have to worry about public transport, that'd be nice.

Gah! Brendan says he cannot come either even though he said he was free before. This means that I cannot get my sunglasses nor my ThinkGeek order now. Mikey, do you think you would be able to express post it to me? I will need to have it on Tuesday because Wednesday's post gets in after I will already be at the airport.


EDIT: I don't know if I can make it now either. I justified the time and money it would take because I was going to get my stuff from people but now I am not going to to get my stuff from people and I need to keep my money for the trip and probably new sunglasses. Who is even going now? I know MaJ can't either, and dedalus can't.

I could post it, but it would be much easier if you picked them up from me at some point. If you're free Monday afternoon/night, I will be at UNSW at the Physics lawn (and so will ACU and possibly Meowgan) at Circusoc from early afternoon 'til around 9.

You could grab them then perhaps?

I can make it if I leave now. I'll have to leave basically straight after dinner though. I still have stuff to get ready, and I need to get up early tomorrow to get to the airport.

I live an hour out from the city. That is why I wanted to get everything tonight and have dinner at the same time so that I could justify taking the time and expense out. I won't be able to get to UNSW on Monday because it is quite far out of my way and I will be packing and rushing around doing all the last minute things, so I would much rather you posted it. It should not be expensive because it will not weigh much. I am sorry to sound like I am nagging, but it is a present for Drew and so I need to have it before I leave.


Ninja-edit: It could possibly work if MaJ were to take them because he passes through Blacktown on his way home. But I would have to know exactly what time his train would pass through Blacktown and exactly what carriage he would be in so that he could pass it to me from the train. Do you normally come home around the same time? Or would you be able to text me when you are getting on the train and get on, say, the last carriage for me?

Is anyone going to the NCSS summer camp or want to hang out when it's finished? I'll also be in Sydney for an extra week after it's over (12th of January). :)

Who is free over Jan, and do people want to have a meet sometime? Considering the heat maybe going to a beach might be appropriate?

I'll be free throughout January.

I now no longer support Manly Beach (as I will have moved to Randwick), so is anyone in favour of Coogee or Maroubrah? Or even the ever-so-stereotypical Bondi?

It's one of those times when I wished that I lived in the Eastern States, so it was easier for me to go various places :( Still, perhaps I can do this when I'm settled in at uni/not living with my parents any more.

Indeed... merry christmas to y'all.

I will only be free weekends through January since I am working full time once again over the holidays. If this coincides with meetups, I might be in attendance.

I am super busy with work at the moment but I should be able to do a weeknight or weekend thing some time in January. I leave for New Zealand on the 7th of February though, so January means January. If that makes sense. Also months are spelt weird.

I think I'm free pretty much all this month, although things around me tend to get organised at the last minute.

I'd be up for that. Only problem being I can't really get into the city (assuming it will be somewhere in there) before about 6 on weekdays.

I will personally kill someone if it is in the city. Inability to park is annoying... very annoying.

I fully support some sort of meetup around Randwick or Coogee Beach, or even Bondi.

You could always park at Randwick/Bondi and get the public transport into Central :twisted: ...

Seriously though, I'd be more interested in picking a place based on something to do. So beach would be fun (though from what I hear we could do a lot better then Bondi), or possibly a movie? Or we could try to organise karaoke again...

Berman, sure it is easy for people to get to those beaches via public transport, but they often have to go through the city first, and you don't have to drive, you take a single bus from UNSW.

I'm sorry, all! We had a few car issues, so we had to skip Sydney on the way back. I tried to text a few people, but I'm not sure if those got through or not.
Anyway, sorry, hopefully next time it'll work out. :(

My phone got those messages. It got them and made no sound. Not a peep. Normally I get an intermittent beeping sound when I miss a message. Thankyou mr phone for your inconstant and bizarre change in activity. Its great that you have that sort of funloving, prank playing personality.

Anybody interested?
