Thank you, SMS. I am looking forward to it. I do drink pints and cuss like a sailor so wasn't overly concerned.

I had a niggling feeling you wouldn't be too nonplussed about it. :wink:

That's alright, Sergei. I don't find Hannie to be rude to be asking if she would be the only female. Heck, I asked SMS the same thing when he invited me the first time. In fact, I also asked him if I would be the *youngest* *female* *Asian* member of the gang! :o

(I must have thought in my early days here that the Eagles are a bunch of old *male* Western expats splitting hairs over finance, banking, Western-vs-Asian food, Western-vs-Asian women, and motorcycles. Hah!)

Anyway if Hannie can't tell my gender from here, it means my mode to appear gender-less in this forum is working!





On related topic, is there any haze contingency plan for this Friday?

Sorry, just saw this posting. A little slow at times. I have plans for 21st & 28th June. Have to give this a miss.

Am actually happy to host a BBQ at my place for the next gathering. I can prepare the food and the rest, just bring the alcohol and drinks.

In the words of the US Civil War Admiral, James Farragut, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!"

Unless somebody as a better idea. :-k

not to add fuel to the fire .. but .. well, if it gets pushed to next week, you will have one more happy guy :D

Since I have a volunteer program at 7.30 Am on Saturday, I have to cut short my stay, if tomorrow goes ahead .. but, I will be there, albeit for a short while.

It might increase it's benefits. A cheap night out, Sing style.

No, Lynx, you've never posted anything that hints to male or female. I'm jealous of anyone worrying that they might be the youngest though. I wish.

Trust me, dear, the problem of being the youngest is that you will be useless in conversations about politics, economics, family-building, businesses, etc (and everything adult) with the bunch!

Not at all. From one point on it is very useful to have someone who actually listen. Besides, OSOD will fight with JR8 or the other way around so forget about conversation.

How about Saint's other place? Dog N' Bone? At least it is indoors.

Just a suggestion. I know it is a little too late to change anything at this juncture.

Perhaps Saint can host a OSOD vs JR8 vs Sergei vs Hannieroo in a no rules, losers leaves in an ambulance, rusty barbed wire cage match. My money's on Hannieroo.
