Title: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Rizzo on 08 Jan 2008, 16:42
I'm gonna be in Sydney from this Sunday for 10 days.
Any of you wanna meet up for a drink/go to a gig/hang out?
Send me a PM here or on Aurostion. I'll probably be picking up an Australian sim card so I can get in touch with people.
I'm keen to hangout with some QC people.
What's the word?

Woo, much fun will be had by all. I'll see if my brother is playing any gigs with his punk band and there will be hang-outs. Too bad Fatty is in 'Nam for your entire visit (I think she's avoiding you).

You live in Newtown right? I'll be in North Sydney, only about a 1 stage train ride away so I can come visit reasonably easily.
Need to get myself some new shoes and a new coat. Any recommendations? Not gallery Serpentine, too expensive and not really my style... well kinda my style. But yeah.

Newtown is pretty good for shopping, though a little dear! It's close to everyone [except me!] Have you been to Sydney much before?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Jimmy the Squid on 08 Jan 2008, 17:49
I guess it depends on what kind of thing you're after. Holy Moley might have some stuff so we'll check there. In Visible Light is also a good option. At any rate we can hang out and go shopping. It'll be totally manly.

I would totally be up for hangouts! I am pretty busy with work but I will do what I can to get up one night or wrangle a day off or something. Should we all just PM you our mobile numbers or something?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Eris on 08 Jan 2008, 17:59
Yeah, I'll be in Sydney from the 17th to the 20th, so we should definitely do something fun! Meetups are always a good time, as we have proven on multiple occasions.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Rizzo on 08 Jan 2008, 18:02
Just once. I really dug Newtown and Enmore.
I remember them being about 15 minutes walk from town.
What about UNSW? How close are they? I've gotta go talk to them about post grad.

Alright wicked! I can't do anything on the 20th but the other days are all good!
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Jimmy the Squid on 08 Jan 2008, 18:06
UNSW is a busride away from my flat, also my brother is playing a show on the 19th that we should see (think fast paced Ramones era punk with The Beach Boys thrown in).
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Rizzo on 08 Jan 2008, 18:09
Mobile numbers via PM are a good idea, I'll send you all a text once I get all sorted.

Sounds awesome Jimmy.

Post by: Inlander on 08 Jan 2008, 20:36
Because he's not coming to Melbourne, right?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Rizzo on 08 Jan 2008, 23:46
No because Fruitkat isn't coming back to NZ and we all hate her for this.
HATE. KAT I MISS YOU. TALK TO ME ON MSN!

Guys, I want to see pictures of Riz making you all look like hobbits by standing next to you, does that sound reasonable?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: jmrz on 09 Jan 2008, 14:18
I'll PM you my mobile number Riz, I am not sure how that week will be for me with work and whatnot, but I should be able to organise at least one day or something.

Tommy, the scary thing is that we actually have people who look like that in Australia, and there are way more than I would like to think about. This is why I stay in the cities and never venture out in the country. You are likely to be attacked.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: tommydski on 09 Jan 2008, 16:25
In the UK, it's the other way around.

You're safe in the country but if you venture into the cities, you're going to get attacked.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Eris on 09 Jan 2008, 16:28
Hey, now I have something I can show people when they don't understand what I mean when I refer to someone as a 'bogan'. Thanks, Tommy!
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Inlander on 09 Jan 2008, 16:31
Thing is, most of them are probably really friendly people, just slightly stupid.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Rizzo on 09 Jan 2008, 17:30
The reason I'm not coming to Brisbane is because Sydney was free for me to get to and has a decent music scene. Brisbane on the otherhand is expensive, full of red necks and is my very idea of hell on earth.
Plus all my relatives live there and I don't particular want to see them this time around.
I don't have a camera so it's up to you guys to do snaps!
Wooo, Aussie bogans rule. NZ bogans are just diptards...
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Rizzo on 10 Jan 2008, 04:30
Our accommodation has been moved and we're now staying on Pitt St in central. This is good cause it means no matter how late I go out I can always walk back at worst.
Trekking back to North Sydney would have been a bit shit.
Plus it keeps my transport costs down. w00t.
EXCITED.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: normz on 10 Jan 2008, 23:22
i am very dissapointed in you guys for perpetuating the whole 'country people are bogans, and city people are of course glamorous and fabulous' lie

im going to pout in the corner now

Hey. HEY. What's wrong with country folk again?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: normz on 11 Jan 2008, 00:46
us country folk have no teeth and mullets... oh and were stupid so it seems. Cause you know recent pics in the photothread show that we are unnatractive rednecks

*rolls eyes*

just cause you live in a bigger city doesn't make you a bigger person
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Rizzo on 11 Jan 2008, 00:54
I think you'll the evidence is very much to that effect. We are not only better but also less likely to punch kittens, kick sick children and rape whales. Science has pretty much proven conclusively that city people are better.
More stressed, less healthy and over worked but generally better.

At least that's what I tell myself.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Tom on 11 Jan 2008, 01:34
But Normz, you are an exception.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Lunchbox on 11 Jan 2008, 02:14
Hey.


HEY.


What do you have against me?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Inlander on 11 Jan 2008, 03:55
Normz, normz, normz. Nobody was saying that country people are all bogans.

We were talking about Queenslanders in general!
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...

Why is everyone ignoring Lunchy?

Don't worry, I'm youre you are adorable to be around. Even if you might be...them folk.

Tomorrow. Am excited.

I didn't say Normz was the only exception.

So I am free Wednesday and Thursday. Who wants to Sydney with me?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...

DUDES RIZZO IS IN SYDNEY RIGHT NOW WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO OH MAN YOU ARE ALL HOPELESS
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: tommydski on 13 Jan 2008, 04:05
Who wants to Sydney with me?

Sure, I'm game. What does Sydney think of this idea though?

I read an article on metrosexuality that said it is okay as long as our balls don't touch.

Tommy, the scary thing is that we actually have people who look like that in Australia, and there are way more than I would like to think about. This is why I stay in the cities and never venture out in the country. You are likely to be attacked.

Um no the scary thing is that I lived in Ipswich for 6 months and it was basically a coin toss between whether Brisbane or Ipswich would be the capital of Queensland, and that that is actually a pretty reasonable snippet of the population of the Switch. In fact, if you were at the local pub those ladies would be the most attractive prospects in the entire place.

Normz, normz, normz. Nobody was saying that country people are all bogans.

Hey shut up if Rizzo was here I would be getting drunk with him instead of the 500 head of cattle I have grazing on my marijuana plants out the back of my meth lab.
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Lunchbox on 17 Jan 2008, 02:08
So Rizzo is really darn attractive and managed to make me shy enough that I didn't actually get any pictures of anyone at the pancakerymeet today.
Crazy stuff.
Fun times though!

my friend Sol is pretty tall. he actually has to duck when he's outside.

Does he post on the forums?
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...

no, he's just really tall.

You flatter me too much Alison, what would your boyfriend think? It was all the hattm. that did it I think.
I had a most excellent time in Sydney, thanks everyone for hanging with me.
Just to dispell any arguements, I'm approximately 193-4cm tall, that's approx 6 foot 3ish. Not that big, just the Aussie ladies were both tiny. Heather too but she's only a proxy Aussie :P
Title: Re: I'll be in Sydney from Sunday...
Post by: Inlander on 24 Jan 2008, 03:41
Before she moved here Heather was, like, 7ft. tall. She shrunk when she arrived in Australia. You've gotta be small and tough to survive here. Smaller target for all the snakes, you see!
