Twingirl has landed...in Tassie!!

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by Twingirl, May 22, 2006.

  1. Well peeps, I am off to live in the warm climate of Tasmania! :shock:

    I have accepted a position with the University of Tasmania for the next 3 years ( initially ).

    I will be based in Hobart, working at the Sandy Bay campus. :) The view from my office is amazing!! :cool:

    I don't know anyone in Tasmania yet, so I am hoping I can meet some of my fellow netriders, and make some new friends...who can also take me riding on their favourite roads.. :twisted:
    I must admit, when the job was first offered, I thought, no way....then I realised I would be living in the motorcycling mecca of Australia! :grin:

    I know this sounds sentimental, and pathetic, but I am really going to miss all of you whom I have meet and formed friendships with... :cry:
    You have all been great fun, dirty, touchy feely..and downright insulting at times... :p but I will miss you all...
    Of course the good thing is all of you will now have free accom when in Hobart..you just have to like my rottweiler!! :LOL:
    I will wander back out of the wilderness into civilisation whenever I can....( aka..come back to Melb. ).and see all you ferals at the various coffee..or even riding gatherings!!

    Most importantly, I will be having Farewell Drinks This Sat May 27th 8pm at: The Rochester Castle Hotel, 202 Johnson St. Fitzroy
    Hope to see some of you there!
    Fleur :grin: :grin:
  2. Cool,

    I went to uni there 1995-99 and shared an office during my Honours year on the bottom end of the Campus. Nice area, Sandy bay is just lovely.

    The parking inspectors are pr*cks there tho, so watch out for 'em.

  3. :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :cry: :cry: :cry: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :furious:

    Have fun, take care, might see you in December ;)
  4. Sandy Bay? Isn't that the groovy area?
  5. I am jealous because of the roads but not so much beacause of the weather...congrats on the new position Fleur
  6. Twingirl is moving to Tasmania....

    :cool: Yes...and expensive...so I'll just be working there and living elsewhere! :LOL:

  9. A promotion is a promotion, and it sounds like it offers the best of all possible worlds (with the exception of the antarctic weather)

    Congrats, and, of course, I trust you made sure that the Uni computer can log into Netrider during the day??? :grin:
