    Dual citizen. Grew up in Dingo, Rock-Vegas and Brisbekistan. Despite all of this, I still managed to find this forum.

    BTW, Qantas was offering crazy discounted airfare to Oz. $400 RT from LAX. You cannot beat it.

    Cheers,

    Good to see more Brisbane folks coming out of the woodwork. People may give you shit for having lunch with a bunch of men you met on an internet fashion message board, but pay them no heed!

    I have been surprised by the number of Brissney-ites here too

    We really should try to have a "Brisbane SF" get-together for lunch, dinner or drinks sometime soon.

    I have lunch with a few members every few weeks - we usually manage to get Laffertron, pvpatty, Neyus, and The False Prophet together for lunch. Somewhere down beside the river, or Sono at the bottom of the Queen St Mall, are popular destinations.

    Melburnian by birth but residing in Sweden. Depressed today because the Pies lost to the Hawks. Watching the Tour de France on the telly and polishing my RM's is good therapy.

    Yes, and will be doing so for a few more years before I return to Oz for good.

    Yes, depressing stuff - I went to the game with my wife, who is a Hawks supporter - at least one of us went home happy...

    You must be the only pies supporter in Sweden!

    I hope so, Wraith. I am getting so much grief at work right now! (Probably serves me right for getting so smug after the four centuries.)

    I'm surprised it took this long for an Aussie thread to turn to sport. BTW, anyone else looking forward to the A-League starting next month?

    Maybe there wouldn't be as much of a need to join here if good fashion was part of the culture already.

    Scottish - living in Melbourne. Recently got my residency. Interested in possibly meeting fellow SFers. I have been browsing SF for a year or so - started posting recently.
