I have many questions about this.
So, the hotels in Austrailialand might not be as cheap as like Boston or Chicagoland. I may not be able to get a hotel room. Could I crash with someone there if I can make it?

Also, and this is important: at what age can you start drinking in Austrailialand, I want to be able to get into the clubs and stuff but I'll just be a wee 19 year old.

Pants, I actually suspect this whole thing is a bit up in the air right now, when I give it some realistic thought. If it goes ahead, the Aussies will definitely be there and they require comparatively small amounts of planning because they already live there. Other people aren't making concrete plans because the details are still all to be decided. Personally, I would wait for quite a bit longer because I don't feel like anyone is likely to be able to give you definite answers about anything at all yet.

I would also just like to go to Austrailia sometime. I've never even been out of the United States. I plan to visit mexico at the bottom of my list of countries to go to. Mostly because I live in Arizona, and its like a 6 hour drive there and I've never went. I think there'd be some awesome irony to it all if I didn't go to the place closest first.

Austrailians! I wanna hang out with you because every Aussie I've ever known is really cool (I've known one, but she was so freaking cool!)

Hotels in Sydney vary in price depending on the area and the quality, as with everywhere. Plus there are hostels around, as mentioned earlier in the thread, which are generally pretty cheap and at least contain a bed of some sort. The drinking age here is 18.

Tommy really is right, though. The only reason we have a semblance of a date for this thing is because Brett bought plane tickets and set the date. Seeing as most of the Aussies here live in Sydney and the meetup is there, they're pretty disorganised as to what is going on, so I doubt anyone could give you a soid answer on questions about details. And any details one person gives you probably will be contradicted by someone else. Plus, in general we're pretty lazy, so things will get organised quickly closer towards the date. I know most people don't know what they're doing next week, let alone in February.

Well, like I said, I'd be content just going and hanging out with people. AND GETTING DRUNK OFF MY ASS FOR THE FIRST TIME EVAR. Maybe. I actually didn't pack my bags for a trip until like 3 hours before I was supposed to leave. I didn't start the laundry for that packing until like 2 hours before that. I'm lazy.

Haha! I have short hair. So take that, I guess.

Also, I don't actually drink. I was more curious because I can't really go out to bars or clubs with friends here in the US because a lot of them don't let you in unless you're drinking age. I didn't want that to be a problem if I were to travel o'erseas to see you people who actually enjoy drinking. I just don't want to be left alone in Australia, I hear everything there is poisonous and there are spiders that are as big as I am.

You're being a bit unfair, though: they only use their strength as a last resort. Really they're very sensitive creatures; it's my understanding that Australian spider epic poetry is very highly regarded in the international arachnid poetry community.

Guys, don't be mean to the poor spider-fearing foreigner. The spiders will never get fed if you keep scaring them away!

Seriously though, big spiders aren't that big a deal, they're the harmless ones. It's the little ones that will fuck you up.

My gut response is that it's false latinisation, but that'll probably depend on who you talk to?

Maybe I'll look it up.

Edit: Yeah, the etymology is greek-derived latin, so platypi would be incorrect. Platypuses is generally accepted.

I have a yellow toy platypus I got for some reason from work. It has a very sad expression, sort of like "yes, I know I'm a fucking platypus, will you kill me now?" Even just holding it makes me feel sick.

Hoop snakes are the only one of the whole "go to australia and die" thing that isn't completely dull and boring and run into the ground. Maybe it's because I wasn't born here but get the hell over this drop bears shit, australia. Get a new joke.

Honestly man, it's not such a biggie. If you ever go to Australasia, I'm pretty sure the same people would at least say hello.

This is what I figured. I'll just add Austrailia to the list of places I want to go someday.
Also on that list is:
-England
-Canada
-China so I can climb a mountain
-Mexico since I've never been there even though it's only like 6 hours away.

Those aren't sacred mountains with six thousand six hundred and sixty six steps though. Also, I bet those mountains don't have monasteries and Shaolin monks that have trained there for their entire lives.

Event suggestion: Incredibly Fancy All-Terrain Bocce

Everyone dresses in the fanciest clothes they have and we all play Bocce in Camperdown Park (see violentdove's latest post in the Photothread). I'm talking suits and ties and cufflinks and fancy dresses etc... Seriously, it will be the best thing ever.

- Best of Tacky Op Shop Fancy Clothings (Newtown, the town next to our place, is choc-a-block with op shops if anyone needs things. Plus Op Shopping is always a fantastic way to hang out)

I know I've said it to all the people in gabbly, but i would add another vote in the "Totally up for this" box, and I just remembered that my brother's wedding is between now and then so hopefully I will have some awesomely fancy cloths already, though I would still be happy to spend much time oppshopping cos you just never know when you'll find that green velvet smoking jacket that I would gladly sell my soul for.
