I overslept! So I am going to be late. I will aim for 11:30 but that is pretty optimistic I think. Umm, people have my number, right? Just call me when you're moving on from Circular Quay or whatever and let me know where to find you.

To keep the tradition up - today in uninformative point form:
  • Pretty much everyone was late to the party.
  • There was a purple-haired fairy doing facepaint... we considered it, but didn't end up getting it.
  • Shiny statue man was not very statuesque, but was very shiny. We watched him prepare the human sacrifices.
  • Tegan knows what a boat is.
  • Heart Attack Special for lunch. Michael only had the one cheeseburger, though it was slightly bigger than the usual.
  • Michael is conical. Tegan too, but oppositely.
  • Several of us were lost to the wereeels. We contemplated eel transport mechanisms.
  • We randomly stumbled on Michael's friend Frank in the park.
  • The plural of "chef" is "cheves".
  • Michael's [redacted] is long, but too thick, and too inflexible to be useful.
  • We went to the Manly waterfront and Mikey burned things.
  • We considered winning the Eurovision, but decided against it.
  • All the cool kids went to the afterparty at Matt's place... I hear it was fun.

You are vastly undermining her abilities.

Just when you thought you guys got rid of me. I am forced to take time off work (I have more than 20 days leave racked up...)

So I am taking another holiday!
I am hopefully coming again for 2 weeks starting the 21st of sept :) :)

Hah. This weekend I was at SMASH. I guess it just goes to show. Show what, I don't know, but it does.

I'll tick this off as another Sydney meet-up I missed. I look forward to the next one.

As do I (sort of; it depends how long I stay at circusoc and how much pyromania I have for the day).
But I'm up for any time after 6 on mondays, tuesdays and thursdays.

A Humble Declaration

Postby hermaj » Sun Aug 16, 2009 12:50 am UTC

I, one Hermaj, Queen of Sandwichdom, do solemnly declare that my curly hair as in its natural untamed state (with the notable exception of fringe) shall hitherto be present at meetups at which one Mr Gojoe of Many World Places And Currently New Zealand and his Mojo may be in attendance. As you all, my witnesses, do recognise this; so it shall be.

<insert fancy loopy signature>


ADDENDUM: This declaration also is in keeping with the recent promise made to one Erasmus the Bearded, namely that I, Hermaj Queen of Sandwichdom, am a lion and will present myself with a mane upon our next meeting. (The fact that lady lions do not have manes is one that shall be ignored for these purposes.)

Good news everyone! I get paid tonight, and I am blowing my money on another plane ticket to Sydney! WOOO!
This time my trip will be 2 weeks long. WOO! And because I have done all the touristy things, I am up to doing almost anything.
My first day there will be september 21. And I leave October 4th. I am hopefully going to a magic the gathering pre release, and launch party. Geeks are welcome to join... but it is not everyones cup of tea.

O hai. You should come see my show. I'm costume directing UNSW's CSE Revue this year. It's basically a sketch comedy show run by computer nerds.

Show runs from the 22-25 of September, I'm probably going to see it on the 25th. It'll be 10 bucks and I can get us seats near the front.

EDIT: It'll be better than Med Revue.

One of these days that Gojoe is here, we are taking him to Featherdale Farm so he can see a koala. That is right near my house so if I ask my mother nicely, people might be able to come over and play in my treehouse after!

I believe that Gojoe, you are planning your trip for our holidayables? In which case, there shouldn't be a problem borrowing my house one weekday. Meowgan, I am interested in this product and/or service, let me get back to you with dates I am free. :D

Gojoe has a list of Things I Have Promised To Do! We can encorporate several of those into meets, I am sure. The entirety of Gojoe's trip is the entirety of my university break, so I am up for a city run, and a picnic, and a trip to the zoo and/or Featherdale and most things really since I have two weeks off. Does anyone know if university students still get zoo discounts? I know I used to be eligible for cheaper tickets. Also phlip what happened to your forum because I cannot access your forum? I think that is everything I want to ask. Oh! Wait. Are there marmots at the zoo? Can we see marmots? Can I have a cookie?

It tends to involve whatever we want. That was the only circus skillz time so far, but if you bring something circus-y, or bug mikeyberman enough, surely something can be arranged.

I'm not great with Diablo, but I can do some basic tricks (and I know the secret of how to throw three stories high and consistently catch). If the next meetup is around UNSW way I can drag along a fiend of mine (intentional misspelling) and he can teach awesome diablo-ness and we can pass juggle and be entertaining.
