I see, if all else fails, resort to childish name calling?

Got colleagues in from the UK this week .......

I thought they were leaving Thursday, it turns out they are not so having to show them around.

Depending on what is organised for Friday evening I will try and get down a bit later.

And I DO hope we will drink beer not being covered with a cloud of smoke from Indonesia.

Saint, looks like around 17 but could one or two more or less. Normally we've always tried to get it rolling around 7:30ish, so don't see any reason to change if you're okay with it.

Cheers

Sadly I am now going to miss the gathering :-(

Short notice business trip to Philippines, leaving Friday. Have fun people and I hope to catch you next time.

1) Hannieroo, don't insult people.

2) It is only 2 days before the meeting. If on Friday this crap is still in the air, I do not think I'm coming this time, sorry guys. I have pretty bad cough. Unless we meet somewhere indoors...

How? Looking at the list of confirmed people I am (I think) the only girl. How is that offensive? Or should I be apologising directly, Ms Sergei?

Two of those are unconfirmed, Morenangpinay was considering shipping out for a while and is unwell with the smog and the names of the other two ladies are not obviously female. So how does looking closer make the question "are any other women going?" a rude one? Please feel free to number your responses and use bold.

You know now you're not the only woman there. How many women do you need? Do you need any at all? It's not a dating club, nobody will try to hit on you.

You are ridiculous. It is not a rude or unreasonable question. And quite frankly that is not something that crossed my mind. I just wondered. No wonder you can't breathe if you get that wound up by a straight question.

I can confirm that both the lynx and iloverice are both women and have been to previous gatherings as well. Morenangpinay was at our last gathering and haze dependent she may or may not be there. Asian_Geekette travels extensively so probably she won't make it.

Hannie, even if you were the only girl there, you would be welcome and I doubt seriously that you would feel out of place nor would anyone else feel uncomfortable either. Girl_next_door hasn't responded so don't know if she's coming or not.
