Okay, so.

This weekend I was in Sydney with my family for about 36 hours, because every fortnight my brother gets to go up to Sydney and have his son (my nephew) for the weekend. (It's Complicated.) Anyway, today my mum hatched a plan entirely independent of my input which is to go up to Sydney for her birthday on another of my brother's access visits, which happens to be on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of February.

So. If that plan is gone through with (and I don't see at this stage why it wouldn't be) it would be no thing at all for me to hang around for a few days more in Sydney. No kind of a thing at all.

Oh hey guys here is the facebook thing. I suppose we should start making this all a little more official and start collating dates and floor space and what have you.

DUMPLINGS... AND HARRY!

The anticipation of watching the inevitable disappointment slowly growing across everyone's face when they actually meet me fills me with a sense of tingly wonder.

Ask the Sydney folks. Hey, Sydney folks, remember when I made you march all the way through the city because it wasn't as far as I remembered it being? Remember that? Fun times!

So... does anyone have some floor space/couch space for my girlfriend and I for 23-26? I have another friend I think we can stay with but if there's any other freebies going that'd be great too :D

I've just sketched it all out and Jodie, Dovey and Brett will be leaving on the 23rd so Jimmy and I will have futon/sofabed space available. i will just have to wash some sheets or whatever.



I work from 7-3 on weekdays so if anyone is going to be around to pick people up and hang around with them and things it would be neat. I will get a couple of keys cut and you can share them amongst yourselves maybe?

That's a wicked plan! Liz (my girlfriend) and I can make our own way to the city, there's plenty of trains etc. We'll likely be staying with my friend Nat but if that falls through a couch would be appreciated! :D

Oh man Dovey if you are getting in that late maybe we should save the mexican for another night, or perhaps just do some mexican cookin' at home so we will still be all eatin' when you get here/I get pressured into picking you up.
If we are gonna go out to some sort of restauranty restaurant one time we are gonna need to get numbers so we can make a booking because I don't fancy the chances of a baker's dozen of us wandering into Glebe on a Saturday night and expecting the Flying Fajita Sisters to just have a spare spot waitin'.

Or maybe we'll leave you to fend for yourself, you're a big (though very small) girl.

i'd offer to pick you guys up from the airport - i know it pretty well - but it's like a 45 minute drive from my place so i am definitely not doing it twice in one afternoon.

I guess if dovey is okay making his own way i could drive down to pick up jodie and brett and maybe leave my car in the city till hometime.

Aw man, Lunchy will so be working.  If you will not be there to find us Jimmy give me very precise directions on how to get to your house from the airport.  I am aware it is RIGHT THERE but like, I will still need directions.

While some of the best Mexican I ever ate was just along the Mexican border (mmm, mole), I have also had some pretty mediocre food in Mexico. I don't have too many impressive memories of Mexican food in Arizona, but I have had some really good Mexican in Chicago.

Alright, apparently I'll probably be in Tumut on Thursday night, depending on how long it takes us to get out of the wilderness on the last day... So I guess I probably won't be up for anything on the 8th, sorry guys.

I am basically the best person in the world for getting lost so I think we should just bring a video camera and document it. Also if Lunchy and Jimmy are both busy during the day maybe we should just hang out with someone who isn't until they aren't?

God that sentence just gave me a headache.

Han suggested we follow the sign in the airport (psssht such ridiculous logic) and take a taxi to lunchys house where Han will maybe meet us then we will hang with her until everyone else is finished being lame.

That is the very vague potential plan right now.

Actually I'm not. When it came down to it it was Soundwave tickets or going to Boston and I obviously chose the latter. By the time I had the extra money it was NIN who I've seen twice already and Cradle of Filth whom I haven't seen yet and whom I might be supporting (as in being the support act) anyway.

oh shit this thing!... I still have every intention of coming it's just I have not booked flights or fixed a place to stay or anything (with the exception of buying some dashing stuff for the overdressed picnic)

So if there are any couches, small areas of floor or nearby dumpsters that have yet to be claimed for the time in question where I could crash that would be well beyond awesome. Failing that if there is anyone who is planning on staying in a hotel/hostel and would like a disorganized, disheveled room mate then am I the guy for you.

I only ask this because if I do end up in a hotel/hostel alone you guys would probably never see me due to my sense of both direction or time having been removed at birth.

I do not have fancy clothes for the Bocce picnic because I am not a dude who rocks fancy clothes even for teenage kicks. I can sit to one side and pretend I don't know you guys or I can try to borrow some or maybe, just maybe I will be so hungover and freaked out at the fact that I have been drinking in a strange city with strange people and will come down with a hectic case of agoraphobia, and I will be curled up in a ball humming to myself. That is the miracle of a holiday! Anything could happen.

Jodie you have permission to go through all my clothes for something because the only shirt you will find with buttons is a loud fat party guy shirt I bought from an op shop for a beach party we had at work. The one nice shirt I bought for a wedding disappeared somewhere in the last move and is nowhere to be found. You have seen what I wear. Do you remember when we went to that play? Those were the fancy clothes I wear to legitimate cultural events

(It was a "rocktober" tshirt and my least grubby jeans if I remember correctly, I am not kidding here)
