Conquest flights changed

I've just rearranged my flights for Conquest.

Leaving Brisbane on Virgin Blue Flight DJ 344 at 21:30 on Friday 7 April, landing in Melbourne at 23:55, so I'll be in town for the wedding on the 8th.

I'll be leaving on Virgin Blue flight DJ 331 at 16:00 on Friday 21 April, landing in Brisbane at 16:00 with a strange man in tow.

I may have a strange woman with me for part of my time in Melbourne, as there is the potential to bring an assistant GM with me.

Nikki and Simon, I want to visit Anton's while I'm there, and I want you two to come with me. I value your opinions. If my filthy assistant is there, she wants to go as well. She has a thing for quality men's clothing, and you can't get much more quality than Anton's!

Of course, this change of plans reminds me that it's only just over 6 weeks until I fly out. Panic!!!!!

Not surprised at all. I'm just giving Brisbane advanced warning.

Probably best for all concerned, that...

Do we get to say "Hi" while you're up this way ? In person ??

Hopefully. I'm coming up on Friday afternoon with Random, then I have to attend my uncle's 2nd wedding on Saturday afternoon, but I'm hoping to slip away during the reception in order to be able to catch up with Brisbane friends for dinner or something similar. Sunday I'm going to be having lunch with my great uncle and then flying back in the afternoon/evening. Once I know the schedule of the wedding I'll be able to plan better. Of course, if we can get together Friday night that would also be great :)

A strange thought crossed my mind as I was going to sleep last night.
If Andrew is shortened to Andy.
Then Random sould be Randy ;)

I'm already getting this as a nickname! :)

The odd bit is, while I never liked Andy, I have no problem with Randy.

We will probably be down there from the 8th too, visiting Boi's family.
(is it wrong to be this excited about a con 7 weeks out?)

I don't see why it would be wrong. I'm already excited about it after all.

Usually I don't get the pre-con jitters until about a week before...
Taking the car to get serviced for the drive, aquiring odds and ends to take on the trip, the creation of a perfect set of mixed-tapes, the last-minute dash to the supermarket for copious amounts of confectionary for the trip...

Good lord, I've become a Filthy Assistant.
That's kind of cool, as long as you don't threaten me with a bowel disruptor gun. :P

I figured you'd appreciate the designation. :)

When are you thinking of going? At the moment it looks like flights about that period are about $139 each way.

What are the actual dates and time span of the con?
Being all student-ey, I can't really justify staying down there longer than the duration of the con itself, so I'll be coming and going pretty damn close to those days.
I'm thinking of making myself a Filthy Assistant t-shirt. :)

Conquest is the four days of Easter itself, April 14 to April 17 inclusive.

If you were flying in the day before, and flying out the day after (I wouldn't recomend flying in our out on the actual day's of the con) you would be flying out of Brisbane on the 13th at 6:00, 7:00 or 8:15 am (yes, that's the morning) if you wanted the cheapest flights, and flying out of Melbourne on the 18th at 12:15, 14:00, 16:00, 17:00, 19:00 or 20:50.

I just had a quick look and uni classes end on the 13th and don't start again until the 24th, so you have a bit of holidays after the convention if you want to stay a few extra days.

Of course I'll come along to Anton's with you... I was the evil person who took you to their shop in the first place! *grin* And I look forward to meeting your filthy assistant :)

I'm sure she would look forward to meeting you, if she had the foggiest idea how wonderful you are. She'll learn...

Be VERY careful Random. Anton's is where I got the suit for your Dr Who game!

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
