Thursday 2230hrs

Departing Sydney:
Virgin Flight DJ437
Monday 2020hrs

And also: Are we definitely definitely doing the fancy dress-ups bocce picnic day? Because I am entirely willing to bring a suit, but only if it's going to be worn.

  • bang bang a suckah MC shot me down

I am bringing a button up shirt and there would be no need for that whatsoever if we weren't so I am assuming that it is on.

(And it is on, my Turkey)

PS in 24 hours I will be lying in bed waiting for the sun to come up so we can get up and go to the airport holy shit this is a couple of days away. I hope I am not too much of a jerk in real life for you people, I made some pretty awesomely bad decisions lately and need to lay off the booze as a result so I will probably not wind up doing anything too disgraceful.

I guess it just depends on whether the weather clears up, but even then the park might be a bit soggy for bocce.

Fancy Soggy Bocce!

I can't wait.

Also it looks like I'm picking everybody* up from the airport, or at least meeting them there. Except for Harry. Because that dude knows where it's at (also he's not staying at my place).

*Everbody worth mentioning.

Also hey hey, who wants to go see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Australian Museum? http://www.austmus.gov.au/visiting/whatson/display.cfm?event_id=322

If it's still miserable out we should do fancy something else that doesn't require outdoors.

This meet-up is this weekend. Possibly starting with dinner tomorrow night I think, according to Lunchy's all-knowing whiteboard.

Harry I wouldn't mind seeing the wildlife thingy... I've been meaning to see it for a while, and keep putting it off.

It's actually sunny in Sydney today for a change. And the weather report seems to indicate that we might actually be able to do fancy bocce without fancy umbrellas.

I'm getting in on Friday morning, I'm having brunch with an old friend and then I can come catch up with you folks wherever you are on Friday afternoon probably.  I'll be away with my family all Saturday but I think I'll be back in Sydney on Sunday afternoon and/or evening, then I'll be around all Monday.  So, I dunno, I've got Ali's number and Jimmy's number from the last time I was in Sydney so I'll give one or both of them a call or something when I'm around and I can come meet up with you all!

I will be there on Sunday with Heather and the boy (at least I think he is coming). I'm staying at Heather's (most of you know where that is) and it will be easy for us to get to where we have to go.

So... bring warm clothing?

Guys I am pretty excited, but not too excited. I think I will be more excited, and probably drunnnk by the time I land in Sydney.

Oh by the way so I don't let anybody down, I am totally not as dashing as I appear on the Internet.

Don't worry Dovey. Lunchy is actually a forty year old dude, and Est is actually some kind of sentient computer program.

They're still pretty awesome to hang out with though.

So guys, because there are people in Sydney who I've known for years and years and so who might reasonably say I should prioritise hanging out with them over hanging out with other people, after I land tomorrow morning I'm going to go to Newtown to have brunch with someone not From The Internet.

But you guys are all planning on hanging out somewhere in Newtown too, right? I could totally come hang out with you after brunch.

I'm meeting my friend at the junction of Enmore Road and King Street. Don't know exactly when, though - some time around 10is or 11ish, probably.

Why are there no pictures up yet? I am logged in at this dodgy internet place to see what is happening and dang. Nothing. Today it is soggy and also Saturday. There are no plans aside from Jodie and I are meeting Phil in about fifteen minutes. It is five minutes past noon.

Excitement is building!
