Well.. I'm not sure what I'm doing right now (actually, I'm never sure) but I may be flying into Brisbane in the next few days.. and I'm sort of..



out of money.



Again.



If anyone could give me any advice/help finding a job and very *very* short notice ( I think I can afford a cheap hostel for about 4 days)- or, even better, has a sofa they wouldn't mind a smelly backpacker lass borrowing for a night or two, I would be your friend for life smile



I would offer to cook and clean for a room, but really, you dont' want to eat my cooking. I can wash up and stuff though.

cool

HoP Brisbane Poipackers at your service smile

not sure about the job market at the moment - but we can offer you a place to crash for a few nights to get on your feet again.

Let me us know when your flying in. you can catch the train from the Airport to a station near our house easily.

I (Dentrassi - posting from newgabes login) live here in gabes house and we are completely used to smelly firetwirling hippies dropping by so your more than welcome.

cheers,
Dentrassi

Not here mate. Coldest winter in years. Seriously. Down near freezing many nights. We been look at each other most bemused. I got a double load of wood in though so the house of Gabe still rocks.. we got a fire!

Thanks for the offer, that would be fantastic! biggrin Always good to meet new HoPpy people!

I'm not sure if I'm going to be flying in or braving the slightly cheaper 22 hour bus trip.. Or even if I'll be trying to stay in Bowen a week or so first to try make a bit o cash picking fruit and the like.


I'm sure I used to have plans.. I wonder what happened to them..

Trisk: Coming over for 2Uberoz?



Cos if you are around at that time, it'd be borderline crazy not to come along, but, please let me know pronto due to soldoutedness... I am overbooking by a few to allow for last minute sickness etc, but as it says on the thread, it's ...*flashes lights*... last orders smile

Also, as I am having 13 Uberteachers arriving to stay from 22nd, I couldn't have anyone else at that time.
Cheers!

Oh god.. I can't afford it, but I'd love to go.. I assumed it was totally sold out.
I literally have $230 and no bus ticket.. I would love to say yes, but I'm so going to have to get some money.. I could possibly try borrow it off my dad, but I already owe him..

Anyone want to buy my soul? Hardly used..

I may just risk it and get the bus straight there- I don't think I can get work here for another week or two, which I can't afford, and I do happen to have rellies on the gold coast who would almost certainly put me up in an emergency.. the more I mess around here, the less money I have, and the less options.


By the way, I *am* borderline crazy.
As you can probably tell by this rambly post..

It's Hazel, it's what she does, don't bother trying to put her down, she does it all by herself and then tells you that you're mean, even if you've agreed to it a thousand times before, right Hazel?

Um, you probably have a point.. but I'm not the dangerous kind of crazy, honest!

I apologise if this is pretty rambly too- I've just got off a 25 hour bus trip, and I think I maybe got half an hours cramped near sleep..

But yeah, I'm in Brisbane, in a hostel- and I would love to go to Uberoz if that was at all possible- I can beg/borrow the money if I don't get a job here. Which hopefully I will.

cool

Hopefully I'll see ye soon! Is it Monday, South Bank the meets here?

LMAO... Hazel is this *your* plea for a room? You're a terrible sell! ubblol

Anyway, hope you did like my tent... even if it was a bit small once you fitted me and all my junk into it! You're the most polite tent buddy I've ever shared with.

Here's cheers to 2Uber Buddies beerchug
