so we know there's an oceanic 6. we know of sayid, jack, kate, and hurley, but claire has got to be dead (i thought this before we saw that) and locke probably stays on the island, so 2 more...i think sun, maybe both of them, cause we haven't seen any flash forwards of them yet, tho it would be interesting if it was only jin and he also was seeking revenge on whoever caused sun's death, cause jin's a badass. and sawyer, who we can guess/hope is who kate was living with, but not be sure. but then we have to wonder, whose funeral was it? sayid's? locke's? (thus making him one of the six?? but4 i think he stays)
You forgot about Claire's baby, Aaron. He's the fifth one, so there's only one more.

Anyway mate, you've kept your head up and you've done damn well this past month. Forget all this shit that's gone on, let's get back to the good stuff.
Oh, no, your posts have been very nice, thank you.

Sorry my replies are taking ages, I overthink typing this stuff too, heh.

I hope the next couple of months are an improvement. Porcupine Tree at the end of April at least.

Thanks.

Please send some of the snow here. We're meant to have some hot days. Not that the hot weather's materialised yet, despite high forecasts ...

I'm gonna go to bed soon, just finishing off a drink. Going back to Adelaide tomorrow morning, for a Greek festival. Man, I can't wait for some good yiros. '

Maybe try not disappearing so immediately after a tute and see if people hang around to talk about it?
Yeah, a couple of my tutes end without anything else immediately afterwards, so I might try that. Or get there early and speak to anybody else hanging about. And of course, Maj. Panic is in one of my tutes.

And thanks for commenting, Ali. Hope your night is good!

I phail.
Yeah, I thought so. I've only played Phase 1 twice, I remember noticing it the first time around but not following it up. I'm guessing it's a deliberate reference?

According to iTunes, I've played the whole Voyage 34 once.

Of course, Adelaide misses out on Porcupine Tree. I would've come over if they'd done a gig - I'm doing all three as it is. I nearly came for Dream Theater, but 1. their most recent albums have sucked, 2. the tickets were too expensive, and 3. I was going to tie it in with doing the Overland train, but the tour schedule got changed and it ceased to fit in with the train timetable.

I'm feeling very tired here, so I'll be out in a few minutes.

I need to try more Greek food. I mean, I live in Melbourne, so I've no excuse; it's the biggest Greek city in the world outside Athens and Thessaloniki! I've savoured some of the Italian stuff on Lygon Street, but haven't gotten stuck into the Greek yet. I like Greek too, so I've no explanation for slacking.

Oh, Greek food is delicious, and is certainly not limited to just yiros, dolmathes, souvlaki etc. It sort of overlaps with a lot of Turkish food too, and Turkish food is awesome.

I should be going to Melbourne mid this year, hopefully sampling a bunch of the ethnic restaurants there. You can come with me, if you want. We'll go bowling!

I'm fairly certain it's a homage to Brick, yes. It's just too similar to be otherwise.

One reason I haven't explored too much of the food here is that Kate isn't an adventurous eater at all - I had to almost twist her arm just to get her to try gelati! GELATI. So that really cramped me up last year, and it was just easier for me to cook than to say "hey, let's go have Greek!", only to get "but ... I don't know Greek ... I don't really want to ..."

Also, Turkish is made of win. I was so jealous when my aunt and uncle went to Turkey. But they brought me back plenty of authentic Turkish Delight and I was in heaven.

And ooh, that sounds awesome. BOWLING TOO. I used to totally own at that. Used to. Now I'll probably bowl ten gutter balls in a row and fall over laughing at the spectacular suckage.

It would certainly make sense, given the Floyd's status as a psychedelic band and all. I just haven't seen anything written on it. Then again, people don't seem to talk about Voyage 34 much at all really.

Haha, I have a friend a lot like that. All he eats are bloody McDonald's fries! I'm not sure if he's even had anything else from McDonald's, either. But I think it's getting better - I took him to a Lebanese restaurant last weekend and he liked it a lot. A successful conversion!

I looove Turkish Delight. Not from Turkey so to speak, but my parents brough back a box of Parisian Turkish Delight when they went to Europe. That was very much appreciated.

I have never been particularly good at bowling, I just wanted to reference Scorpio from the Simpsons. But hell, it's still fun - so why not?

I at least got Kate to agree with me that Macca's fries are terrible. But I don't know how people survive with the same boring food over and over again. I need new flavours. I'll sometimes throw random stuff into my cooking just to see what happens. Now when I make quesadillas, I include Worcestershire sauce, of all things.

Turkish Delight is made of so much SuperWin. I don't know why so many people hate it.

And I just wanted to brag about how I was once good at something sporting. I'm sure it's no surprise that with my bad vision, I'm shit at most sports, despite being an avid sportsfan. But once I managed to figure out how to bowl straight - for once in my life, I was beating people! Weird feeling, I can tell you.

Well, it's been good chatting to you Ax, as well as the rest - but my head's spinning and it's nearly 2am.

I gotta vamos. Have a good night, take care!
