I will be in Sydney for a week starting Aug 2. I am busy on the Saturday. But free like every other day I think.

I should pay more attention to this thread. Sorry I missed you, ded. Hey, how was Waiting for Godot? Drew and I were considering seeing it in Christchurch but time and money were issues.

Also we should do something soon.

Heh, I didn't see it for lack of moneys. Seriously, $150 tickets? My sister + girlfriend had a good time and shook Sir Ian Mckellan's hand. But we hung out with Erasmus, and learnt the hard way how terrible Sydney parking is...

And yes, we should do something sometime soon. Unfortunately with uni I'm completely full for *ages*, but if someone else is doing something, I'll see what I can do.

And again, sorry Gojoe, missed you in Sydney, I'll have to come back to Christchurch :P.

Is anyone here going to go see Pendulum? It's a long while out yet, but I'd get in and get tickets now-ish if you're going. Horton Pavilion, November 5th, tickets are about $67. I may be going, I'll be able to let you know if I am or not in the next couple days.

I believe its Hordern Pavillion. And its not really my thing, sorry.

And sorry for not making the last meetup, but I was pretty drunk and wandering around vaguely hungover like I did last time didn't seem like a fun idea.

The Flugtag is happening again, we've done that before. (I mostly know this is coming up because a non-xkcdilian friend expressed interest in going, the other day. Traveling down with them would increase the odds of my attending above zero.)

If we're doing that again, we should try to be there vaguely on time, so we can actually see something of what is happening. The front on view doesn't really cut it.

It's been a while. But if anyone still checks, I miss you all and we should hang out.
Also I will have a Gojoe permanently (more so than usual) as of April. Gojoe is pretty enticing.

It is too bad you did not say Wednesday, then we could orgasmise for the 14th of March and the thread title would just be a digit out.

Why thank you :) Gojoe said to me yesterday that he wanted to go To Canberra (I am not sure why that 'to' capitalised itself but I do quite like the thought of going To Canberra! Away!) so that is something we will likely be doing at some stage this year also.

But Sydney! April sometime! Let's do this thing?

Woo! I'm not sure whether I'll be in Sydney in April, but I am trying to convince my girlfriend to come to the Easter Show so it could happen (unfortunately as a poor penniless student I suspect she'll balk at the cost, even if I am offerring to pay it). Failing that, let me know when you're in town and I might even see if there are any other Canberran xkcdians still lurking around.

The Easter Show might be a fun idea! Even though I agree it is a bit of a money sink. I think we have established on previous occasions that we are quite good at picnics so that might be a good way to cut the cost a little.

Woah, this thread is alive???

9th-15th of April is the session break for my uni, so I'd be free for a day then. After then I probably wouldn't be free till the end of June (post-exams). 5 subjects + tutoring 3 subjects + running a society + research = v. busy.

That corresponds to my break too but I will be working full time while uni is on break so it would have to be a weekend. Preferably the weekend after Easter, if we are just doing hangouts and not Easter Show things.

Jmrz, where in Sydney are you? I forget. You're pretty inner-Sydney though right?

Well, if I'm only free 7th-15th, and jr is busy 14th and 15th, and hermaj is busy 9th-13th, it seems the only free time we have is the Easter weekend.

Sadly, girlfriend and I checked the price of travel & accommodation for a trip to Sydney over Easter, and it was a bit past our current budgets. Maybe next time - or let me know when you're coming to Canberra and we'll try to organise something here (offer valid for any forum members).
