That was awesome. I was expecting you'd be wearing a suit or something, but no, Zooropa! That was made of SuperWin.

My fashion sense is probably even more hopeless - hence my question! I just have the neat casual stuff you've seen and that's it, because I find it comfortable. I look like a tool at the beach, a shade overdressed at uni, and hopefully not underdressed tomorrow!

Hi Sad Punk! Or do I call you Saddo?
"Saddo" is just what Axxo calls me, I'm happy being called my real name, which is Bonnie.

Phail Collins = Bill Gates.


I don't think I saved it, but I saw the BEST photo ever.... Bono and Bill Gates at some meeting/conference in Korea, I think; and Bono's giving a (RED) iPod to the South Korean PM/President/whatever (again, I think)... Bill Gates is sitting next to Bono with his arms crossed and the most hilarious look on his face. Like and and forced....

Thanks. I'm trying not to panic! All through this evening, I've browsed their website to see what they're up to. A couple of years back, they did a big railway thing for 150 years of Victorian railways! So maybe I won't sound so stupid when I mention I'm right into transport history. I wonder if they'll want anything done on trams? That would make me so happy. Though I'll be content with ANYTHING. I'm getting to do history that will be original and outside the confines of boring undergrad regurgitation!

We've got a very relaxed dress code at work, because most of the contracts are call centres... this is one of the very few advantages to working for that mob. I love wearing jeans and t-shirts every day

You'll be fine

Hi Bonnie

One of my parents' neighbours is called Bonnie... I think she's over 90 now!

Nice to meet you officially, anyway
<--- is Alison

Not that I'm suggesting sneakers + black pants. That's the pure domain of call centre guys and others who don't have to impress anyone from the ankles down...
I must admit, I'm the definition of the oblivious male who never notices shoes. But I have an excuse, my vision! I think people would be creeped out if I leaned down to have a good look at their shoes, to see how casual or formal an impression they wish their footwear to give!

And I should have pointed out that this shoe-related revelation of mine has been very recent, ie, in the last week or so.

<--- clueless

AXXO! I'm excited about this! Nobody has EVER given me an Australianised -o/-zza/-ie kind of nickname. All through high school, my friends wanted to come up with something, but André just didn't lend itself to anything like that, especially as we already had an Azza, my friend Aaron. Who hated being called Azza, so we used it even more.

I don't think I came up with Saddo though. I think I picked it up off blueeyedgirl.

And Bonnie's a great name.

No way! By the sounds of it, you've been to cool places and seen awesome things and like Ali says, LOVETOWN.

LOVETOWN.

Can we copy your memory of those gigs to my brain? Like how you can copy an MP3 from one computer to another? Because I could really go for that. Then I'll just track down people who saw the other 43 Lovetown gigs too.
