Why now?

Ok people, I need a favour. This mainly applies to local people, but maybe others can help.

A couple of weeks ago I entered a competition put on by MusicMAX for tickets to see the John Butler Trio live in concert. MusicMax does these every now and then for later rebroadcast.

I have just been told that I have won two tickets.

The problem is that the competition is just for tickets, and not for transport or accommodation or anything like that. I knew this, and had no problem with this, or at least I wouldn't have had a problem with this if I hadn't had all my cards stolen yesterday.

So, I need to be at the Sydney Opera House (Studio) by 11:30am on Monday the 7th (ie less than a week) with a friend. So, can anyone help me and want to be my friend for the day?

My original plan was to do it as a day trip. Leave home Monday morning, get back late Monday night, or something like that.

Anyone?

Edit: A quick look indicates Virgin Blue to be the best choice in flights. Morning flight down (departing 8:00am or ealier) will cost $125 and a night flight back (departing about 9:00pm) will cost $85.

I can ask Murray about a place to stay overnight if you need it.

Thanks.

Hopefully won't be neccessary, as it would probably be best to fly down and back on the day, that way I don't miss any more work than I have to.

True. Offer is there if needed though.

Or you could ask Nikki and co - I'm sure that they would be happy to put you up for a night.

Yep, I thought of that. I'll worry about the technicalities once I find my brain again. I think they stole that as well.

Dear Heart, I am always be happy to be your friend, but since I haven't a clue who these people are, I shall wish you luck in the finding of a companion for next Monday.
I'm a stay-at-home kind of friend.
(((hugs)))

No, I don't think friend is the word.

Friend does not even begin to encompass all that you are to me. *hugs*

Were I still there in Sydney, I would offer you a roof over your head & lifts anywhere you wanted, but I'm in Leipzig Germany atm. Have a fun day though :)

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
