I signed up specifically for the wedding; don't let me down boys!

Time to cart out and dust down my corsets too :) Not much chance of wearing those in Singapore. 31 Degrees today.


Yay! We can meet up!


:D :D :D

I might be down a day early, to get over the jet lag. It is a 15 hour flight :shock: But I've flown Singapore-Chicago, I can do anything!

Hang about SG! :shock:
You like Day-glo, I've seen your picture and you're going to be wearing a corset! :shock: :shock:

Can all the other members going please throw beer over me if I say anything untoward. :(

Well there is usually a quiz organised in the evening for the people who arrive on the Thursday to get to know one another and get a head start on the rest of us.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I'm not throwing beer at the prices they charge. You'll have to wait until we get to the Griffin :)

I went to the quiz last year. Bloody hell, the questions were difficult!
I was on the same team as the guy who played Frank 'n' Furter in the Rocky Horror. We lost, but I was responsible for two of our answers, which were both wrong. :(

I hear there's going to be a beer drought :( otherwise I'd suggest we have a beer car wash.

Hm. That sounds sticky.

:lol: It's pooh we're talking about here so make that tacky not sticky SG :wink:

There'll be plenty of beer around, but the hotel bar ain't exactly cheap and their beer isn't exactly the best of what's available...

MAD - do you know a good local charabanc firm who could cart us off to The Griffin one afternoon/evening there's not much on? :lol: We'd probably need to book the pub too at this rate :twisted:

Only if you bring lots of money (or preferably your own beer), the hotel sells really expensive fluid which it claims is beer but which tastes like it has been recycled a couple of times if you get my drift :roll:

Already in hand my dear Jan, I can book a minibus for a dozen of us and that way it won't cost so much per person. I will need to go by bus anyway as:

a) I'm buggered if I'm driving there again to watch you lot drink
b) I will be staying in the hotel as I will have moved well before then
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Good idea, just don't get caught with it by the hotel staff. A scorpion pit is probably just the start if they find you with non-hotel supplied booze :roll:
