Yeah, likewise. Does everyone have to bring their own oxen? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> . .. .Perhaps some whizz kid can set up a web cam so us unfortunates can keep an eye on the frovilities and friviolities <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

Never mind, Flaps ... if it's any consolation your OzBash shirt is ready for you. Of course we would have much preferred for you to come and collect it yourself but maybe next time ... . .. .We'll have a drink or two or three to absent friends and definitely keep you posted on the deeds/misdeeds of the participating crew.. .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

I can't wait to see my T-shirt. Heard from Binos about your special effort Blue. Muchly appreciated, and you will be thanked in the usual manner. What do you drink?

29th Mar 2002, 17:58
Vodka & Tonic thanks Feets ... and you're very welcome. See you on Tuesday.

Okay, okay, I'll be the bunny who opens the floodgates... who else, apart from our especially beloved Flappie - whom I shall miss greatly - won't be at Ozbash? Please signify to that effect here and we'll try to have a drink or 6 for ya! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> . .. .There, that outta keep us drinking... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

Err, ahem... a small clarification here. Select snippets of not too damaging information and harmless if titillating photos may well be released to the great unwashed via this site, but the great Aussie Rule Numero Uno will apply; What Happens on the Field Stays on the Field. Nothing like the camaraderie of those who know the real truth!. .. .There are several people I would love to have had joining us. For various reasons they cannot, but Your Esteemed and Delicious Flapsness, you are top of the list, and we will certainly be drinking to absent friends. Maybe even more than once... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" /> . .. .I might add that after talking to GG this morning, it seems it has been decided that since a lot of people are arriving in Melbourne on Monday night there is no point wasting it. So much for arriving fresh on Tuesday, a four day pissup is obviously not considered enough... God I love these people!. .. .Three more sleeps......

29th Mar 2002, 18:29
Oh heck, OzE, now you've done it ... I was hoping to get in at least three or four hours of sleep a night. . .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

So unfair that I couldn't make it... pushing back the frontiers of science just has to come first though <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" /> . .. .Have a great time all of you, can't wait to see the photos/hear the gossip! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

29th Mar 2002, 21:00
Well I haven't won the Brit Lotto or otherwise "come into money" so I am afraid I will not be heading across the globe to the OzBash... not this time anyway!. .. .Hope y'all have a great time and, like others, hope that there can be reports either in the forum or in chat!!. .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

29th Mar 2002, 21:08
Sleep BD? There'll be plenty of time for that AFTER the bash! I've got that long plane ride back to Cairns.... .. .So now, we're gunna be drinking to Flappie, AerBabe and brockenspectre. Ah well, like I always say, any excuse better than none! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

Flaps - GG's house is great, and she is just the best host anyone could have, and we are practising hard every night in preparation for the Ozbash. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> . .. .I'm glad I made the journey and I'm looking forward to meeting some of the great and famous Oz Pruners <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> . .. .However, Flaps, just so that you are not too jealous, the wx is cool, rainy and overcast.

Don't worry about photos etc (the ones they don't want you to see) I will be in Oz from 10/4/02 for 3 weeks and will raid BD's photo album whilst she is out at work. I will also keep my ears wide open for any interesting bits of gossip. If they won't post it , I will. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

Yeah, I'm onto it Capt. Veg. Had a long talk to the met. people this morning and explained how important this is. They said they'll fix the weather but we have to send over a couple of slabs.. .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

Blue Diamond Thanks a million in advance for the T! Looking frwrd to wearing it with great pride.

Vel, not at all surprised that GG is a great hostess; hopefully she is made of stern stuff as well; opening one's house to a bunch of raving proons takes guts! How does Stu figure to survive all this BTW? ;)

Just realised that I should not feel too sorry for myself, since I am being aired on a New York this week. Yippieeeeeee! :D
I will raise a glass to far away friends when in the Big Apple.
