    Actually, library jobs are exactly what I'm looking for, so I will totally take you up on that offer to get me a job that you didn't quite make.

    I'm talking casual library assistant here, nothing fancy or with security/guaranteed hours.

    I'll still check it out. Especially as it's not in bloody Narrabri or 300km out of Perth (but where is it, actually?). Bonus points if you can get me somewhere to live, too Let me know.

    West side for lyfe reporting in!

    While holly dazing over East does sound like a great time, I fear December is a terrible period of time for me.

    The other two people in my department have a wedding/vacation planned, and we would already be understaffed. As such I fear I wouldn't be able to put in for annual leave for this time on such short notice.

    I will continue to monitor the thread though, in case it does seem more likely I'd be able to make it to such a high koalaty meetup!

    Naaaaah, that was a different job. Forget where it was for, but not the Cockburn one. The 300k-from-Perth one I withdrew from for being an on-call casual job in the arse-end of nowhere; the Cockburn one I'll legit go for cuz at least it's permanent part-time.

    I'd probably be interested in turning up, what with having three months off in and around December.

    Okay, that makes much more sense. Most of WA is in the arse-end of nowhere

    And sure, you can stay with us our spare room is also the room with all the bookcases in it, so you'll feel right at home

    I'd be interested in this. I'd have to fly down from Qld, and wouldn't be able to leave til the Saturday afternoon though.

    This is also assuming the yearly Santa Claus Pub Crawl in Brisbane isn't on that weekend :l

    In short, no. No age limit. As long as your parents are ok with it if you're under 18.

    It may limit what we can do, but we'll work around it.

    I probably can't make it... new job meant to be starting around then, and until then I have almost no money to do things (and i just used up literally ALL of my velocity points to pay for the flights to go see my dad).

    Also, if I were to end up in sydney I'd be highly tempted to another brand from Industrial Strength in Newtown... which would not be the best idea considering the lack of money, the starting of a new job and the fact they take more than 6 months to heal... (and i'm totally rambling because I've had about 2 hours sleep! Yay!)

    But those things said, you never know. Will see how things pan out. I sometimes have work down in Canberra for a week or so, and often come through sydney, so yeah, you never know.

    You guys have fun with or without me though.

    Thanks for the info on the age limit. Shouldn't be a massive problem, except, as you say, for limiting activities. We can probably look into that at a later date.

    Certain Developments make it more likely I'll be able to come: I may have some work (not a job, mind, but some work) a few hours north of Sydney around then.
