Yeah, I figure I may as well drive, seeing as it should be at least a little bit quicker than public transport, and not involve walking home from parramatta station at 1am again (which is always fun), and I can give you a lift back to Granville (I assume you don't want to wait for me to be heading in late).

I will tell Tegan to come change the thread title and see if she wants to show up tonight.

Hi Tegan. You should come to Karaoke with me on the first.

We can uninvite everyone else and have a room to just the two of us.

I guess this means we'll want to do something the next weekend as well/instead of the 1st. Opinions?

I'm on MSN (among too many other protocols). Hundreds of thousands of questions at the most, though, please.

Ask your travel agent if you can get a discount fare, because of the reduced distance...

Ok I will try my hardest to do as much of those as possible. Are we going to organize a meet up? Any day BUT Friday I am free.(Well I am free Friday, but my friend who I want to introduce you all to is not). On the Fourth I am going to hit the ground running. I am going to circular quay, then ferry to manly beach. If someone wants to join me and my friend.

Also, is anyone else still keen on karaoke on the 1st?

At the moment, I don't think I'm busy on either, but I will have the same problems with regards to getting into the city any earlier than say, 7 (possibly later if i'm using public transport).

@gojoe: this one?

I would love to see Gojoe! You are not messing things up. I will have to be a late confirmation because a friend of mine is coming down from Brisbane that weekend (for the City to Surf in fact, which is how I knew the date) and we always catch up while he's here and I'm not sure what his movements are. I'm sure Saturday the 8th will be fine for me though. Not sure about the 1st.

I think we have 4 people who have said they are available on the first, and I won't be able to get there until relatively late... I don't think this is really enough for karaoke. We could maybe just meet up and have dinner or something, but that leaves the same problems with timing, and out of the 4, phlip will be having to get a train back up the coast, and I won't be able to get there for dinner until about 7, so that makes it a late night.

Yes I think there is something happening on the 8th. How many of us can drink btw? Could we meet at an awesome bar? Or are there minors around? (I do not care, just thinking of a fun place to meet)
