OK .. so maybe I should just book the concert tickets and a couple night accommodation at a backpackers ... and leave the airfares until payday

Wish me luck!

ps .. I've been on the ferry to Tassie a couple times and I don't wanna do it again Those cramped little cabins freak me out!

Wow, really? I wouldn't have guessed that it's such a long voyage. Has nobody tried to introduce a fast ferry? For a few years there, they had those on the Cook Strait route in NZ and they'd do the crossing in about 1.5 hours. It was great.

Sounds like Wellington ... funny, a lot of Tassie sounds like New Zealand really ... conspiracy?

This sounds like the makings of a good plan!

Awesome, glad you're doing it!

I should probably turn in too. Before I go, post stats for this thread, updated manually to include this post of mine:

Total Posts: 409
User Posts
Axver 122
Alisaura 85
mysterious_jen 81
coolian2 63
the tourist 49
TranceEnding 9

I love how just six of us have managed to do all of this! And then there was the preceding insanity of the the 989 posts before we bailed on the Pop Survivor thread. Incidentally, in that one, Tourist had 220 posts and I had 200, but the cumulative total is Tourist 269 (2 ... 69; suits the susspot!) and 322 for me, so:

TOURIST = PWND

Nobody can survive on that little sleep. I find myself drifting off on the bus when i sleep for 8 hours. At least i believe in the ability to catch up on sleep.
I leave the laptop on most of the time, and it doesn't turn off when I close the lid, which might contribute to how hot it runs/how frequently the fan breaks. Though I was up for a little after to do a small, small amount of reading, mostly for the purpose of putting me to sleep.

As for me, I can run on very little sleep, but not as well - but I am both a high functioning drunk and a high functioning insomniac. And you can sooooo catch up on sleep, I do it once a week or so.

So I take it you found tourist's guitar innuendo?

Nice going there.

I really should be getting some sleep ... I'm even beginning to feel tired. Let's see. My virus scanner is going to start in seven minutes and make my computer slow as hell.

Or maybe I should just entirely stay up, collapse into bed tomorrow evening, and try to restore my sleeping habits! I could pull a Varitek!

I was half thinking of writing a short story inspired by RTSS... about someone who hated life and found happiness through taking Heroin... I might do it.
This is fucking hilarious because I asked LemonMelon about mining towns because I'm writing a novel set in a mining town inspired by....you'll never guess what!

I really do need to work on my story more. Especially since I'm currently taking a "writing fiction" class. The professor reads bits of each of our stories aloud and then the class critiques it. The author is the only one not allowed to talk until the end. Mine was the only one everyone in the class unanymously loved.
I'm in a writer's workshop class too, but we have to email our stories out to be read in advance. Everyone loved the first few chapters of my story, which I have titled Hanging On so as not to reference U2 too directly.

It's : banghead : without the spaces. See?

The bathroom discussion is, I suspect, best left forgotten. I blame Danny and Tourist entirely for it.
