Shame on you for believing stereotypes... Although I admit I'm an atypical Aussie. Don't like beer, don't like cricket, am largely indifferent to football.

Lygon St....
No idea how to get there from Flagstaff though

Hey you crazy kids!

Finally home from work now ... 5 days off ahead of me now.. woo! I feel like I'm holidays!!

Anyway, just checking in to see if everything is cool for tomorrow I think it's gonna be a fun day!

I haven't prepared any food or anything like that .. but I'm sure we'll find some tasty nibblies in town somewhere Mmmm .. this thread is making me hungry now! I was thinking about this felafel place down Acland Street in St Kilda (closeby to the yoga place I go to) .... soooooo delicious (ooh, I'm vegetarian by the way!) I was thinking about treating everyone one and bringing them into town with me ... but they'll probably be all soggy by that time, LOL!

All you crazy people that don't like wine! What is wrong with you!!! I'm not the world's biggest boozer by any means, but I do loooooove a lovely glass of sav blanc (or three!) occassionally

Anyhooooo ... I should go and dig out a few of my old U2 relics and collectables to bring along tomorrow! I just hope I can find some stuff!

Just a quick post, as I've got to go cook dinner and such before heading out to Explosions In The Sky later. This is all sounding good! I'll have to dig up some U2 stuff tomorrow morning before I come in. I'll check in on the thread tomorrow morning, but by the sounds of things, it'll be happening! Even if it's only a handful of us, heh. AchtungGirl219 and COBL, are you in? If either of you are, it'd probably be a good idea to e-mail me your mobile phone number in case anything happens: amakaxver[at]gmail.com

See you all tomorrow at 1pm, corner Spencer and Bourke!

And also, I don't like wine or beer, and I can't see me swigging from a bottle of kahlua in a park, so...

I thought the 40-foot Bono arse was just the IMAX screen version....

Righto, definitely bed time!!

I don't drink at all... so I've never been drunk either!

Holy SHIT what a gig. Now, we all know that especially in the early days, U2 were full of energy live, especially Bono, right? Explosions In The Sky just made early U2 look fat, lazy, and slow. I've never seen four guys pour themselves so intensely into their music. Wow. That was mindblowing.

I hope you can make it, AchtungGirl219! If you don't get your work done, bring it along and we can finish it as a group activity, full of U2 trivia to educate the kids about good music.

Now that'd be a curriculum I'd enjoy.

Hey guys, I have to apologise profusely once again, but a bed has just become available for my Nan in her new Nursing Home and we are moving her in today. I spoke to my parents, explaining how I was meeting friends in the city, but it's all hands on deck.

Very sorry everyone, but let me say nothing will stand in the way of U23D.

Heck, I'd better get my butt into gear...

Looks like it'll be a small gathering, but I'm sure we'll have fun.

I suppose I better start getting my stuff ready. Still got half an hour before I have to walk out the door though!

Well, I had a great time and I hope the other two did too. It was really great meeting them and they're both lovely people. We talked for over 3 hours! It was insane. I initially didn't believe it when I looked at my watch and realised what the time was.

Also, I'm a complete fool. I had my camera with me, I photographed trains, I even showed Alison pictures of my One Tree Hill single on it (can't remember if I showed that to Melissa too?), but, uh, no photos of us.
