Sydney Bloggers to meet July 20. Mark it, dude.

Had a great time last night with some great peeps. It's $10/Gormet Pizza at the Nag's Head. So we ate for $10/person, and the two poor Moore Students ate for $5.

It was interesting a couple of times when someone gave their initial impressions of a person by reading their Blog, and how it compared with reality. Someone thought that Craig would be opinionated and loud, and was surprised to meet a very mild mannered person. Someone thought I'd be a very straight-down-the-line kind of guy (I think that was the impression), and was surprised to find me warmer than expected.

Good fun.

We'll do it again in 2 months. Monday nights are good. July 20 sound good? I want Mark Barry to come to this one -- it was his idea in the first place. So speak now.

Mark it, dude.

Excuse me, I'm feeling a bit hoarse :)

I'll mark it and make more of an effort to get there.

Mark said...

I'm pretty sure I'm in : )

Justin said...

We could meet at Lithgow, RC?

Mark, mate. Are you sick?

RodeoClown said...

Lithgow is just about as far in the other direction :)

I was just suggesting that perhaps we could ALSO have a lunchtime meeting in the CBD - then all the city workers who don't live in the ciry can meet up too :)

Name a time and place, RodeoClown.

One Friday?

RodeoClown said...

How about next Wednesday (June 3).

Venue... no idea, I'm happy to sit in a park and eat sangers :)

Or there's plenty of caf├ęs around.

It sounds like a great night. Hopefully I'll be there on the next one. Thanks for the wrap up.

It was a great night! And I don't think Craig is mild-mannered, just more aware of being opinionated than I thought he was :)
Eeek I hope that doesn't sound offensive, not meaning to be.
Anyway, I'll pull out of the July 20 thing. I have this small thing called "University Orientation" :p

How about the Athenian Greek Restaurant on 11 Barrack St.? Not too dear, has reasonable food and nice ambience, albeit with tacky decor.

Justin said...

I could do Wednesday June 10. I'd be as happy in a park eating lunch.

We could do Wynyard Park, with a back up at St Philips?

RodeoClown said...

June 10 sounds good to me :)
Wynyard park is good (easy to spot people).

RodeoClown said...

So Wednesday, June 10, Wynyard park at (12:30/1pm) for Sydney CBD weekday meetup?

Mark Earngey said...

Sounds good - I've got a whopper of an assignment due the following day so if I'm not there, you know where I'll be! :)
