Better late than dead in a ditch.
Emma and Gavin had Katie, Linda and I over for dinner. Next Week For Sure lost netball to the basketballers, again (however the referee was better than usual). Emma, Gavin and I set out to go rock climbing but ended up eating pancakes. Carlos, Emma, Gavin, James, Katie, Scarecrow and I went to CanCon where we met Dave, Drew and Simon; many people spent much money before most of us went on to Dickson Asian Noodle House for lunch and O’Niells for drinks; later Linda joined Katie, Simon and I at Dave and Fiona’s to watch Martian Successor Nadesico
and Ghost in the Shell: Innocence
. Emma and I had breakfast at Dobinson’s, saw Somersault
at Electric Shadows, and had dinner at Kingsland Vegetarian Restaurant. Ian, James, Simon and I joined Katie (for her first) and Emma (for her last) installment of Dave’s Dungeons and Dragons
game which also saw the introduction of my poorly rolled and incompletely equipped replacement for the late Dexy Footfall: Sparky the Half-Orc Cleric of Saint Ruthergrade. Emma and I drove to the coast to visit Mystery Bay (we still don’t know why it is called Mystery Bay, but there were some pesky kids loitering about) and stayed overnight at Bateman’s Bay, which was nice. Australia Day was celebrated at Dave and Fiona’s with Brenda, Cath, Emma, Gavin, Hector, Ian, James, Katie, Linda, Simon and Suzie watching cricket while listening to the JJJ Hottest 100 countdown and later making karaoke.
This morning Emma moved to Bulahdelah.
