Posted:I've ended up staying till 3am before a few times, as it was so nice up there smile

so the answer is 'whenever' as long as the weather holds <grin>

have a laptop that can provide tunes for a couple of hours. (shpongle / pendulum ), anything else would be cool, we need to recruit a drummer or something really smile , havn't seen Parsley on Wed for weeks, and he's never come down at the weekends I've been around :/

I've got a little fuel left, I might try pick up a new can, especially as I've run out of batteries for my glow gear. It's 5 for 4 liters at freds discount store on Cowley road.

Last night was really cool, and great to meet you Beth and Hyperlight. Before seeing the hyperlights I was a bit skeptical about the 'brighter than the sun, flashier than a flashy thing', but now I completely see what everyone's raving about! weavesmiley

few people away at the moment, but I'd expect 7 or so, I might be quite late this week myself, missed too much karate since coming back.

I'm' guessing the arg means you'll still be in SF on the 9th? sorry... it's when Beth's back, so she asked me to arrange something, first weekend in a while I think I'll be free too so if nothing was happening I'd have been pestering everyone anyway <grin>

Posted:Hey Yak.. wink

I got back on tuesday, so had chance to meet up last
night. I'm very impressed with everyone turning up in
the rain to sit in the pub instead of spin. I think K
has helped me become even less of a fair-weather juggler
than I thought! biggrin

And yes, I'll be back in SF on the 4th, assuming my boss's
have got their act together to my satisfaction... cool

And I'm moving up the iffley road this weekend, no more
nice flat, unplugged, disconnected - I'm growing strangely happier...

see you soon I hope hug
