The Away Thread

Postby Marianne » Sat Jun 30, 2007 4:44 pm

If you're going to be away from the forum for a while and want to let the rest of us know, post here. :D

I shall start--I'm going to be in Bordeaux the entire month of July, and neither the hotel nor the language immersion program offers free internet. I might pay now and again, or sneak onto unsecured wireless hotspots, but I probably won't be online regularly.

(After Bordeaux I'll be going to Paris for five days; I'll be sure to bring back pictures of LM-related locations.)

I'll be back sometime in the first week of August.

Bon voyage, Marianne! :)

Hope you have fun! Paris is amazing. :D

I am also going to be gone (not Paris, sadly) to Alaska for a week, and most likely will not have Internet service up there. I'm leaving tonight.

Have fun you guys! I actually am away right now at DUke, until the 13th, and though I can get on sometimes, it's hard to snag a computer in the cafeteria! *waves*

Well, here I am. :lol: The hotel has free internet after all, but for various reasons my computer was dead for a while. So, looks like I am back.

If I post too frequently, slap me across the face and tell me to go out and enjoy Bordeaux/improve my French/take pictures of the monument to the Girondins/find a café in the Quartier St-Pierre and hit on the waiter/buy a 5-euro bottle of wine and get utterly sloshed. Because I did not come here to refresh forums for hours on end, lovely as all you folks are.

Well, since you have internet access, you might as well keep us informed of what's going on. :wink:

Or, alternately: find and ship me a pretty blonde Frenchboy. Save on shipping: clothes optional. :twisted:

Ah, next Sunday, I will be at a mission trip in NYC where there will be no chance to get online or even on a computer for about a week, and then we are going to Maine for a week or two, to visit my grandparents. I'm not sure they have internet either, especially since they moved out of the cabin into a retirement home last year. So...gone maybe two or three weeks...

In a couple hours I'll be heading to spend about a week at a cabin, probably without net access. See you when I get back.

Will miss you!

I'm not sure if this qualifies as 'away' (but since I'm the one with a running fic here on the forum), but I expect that all throughout August, I won't be here as regularly as I'd like. Especially on the third week of August, during my term exams.

Seems to me as if a good number of us will be away for a while. :)

Right, I'm leaving for Australia tomorrow, for a trip that might extend to well over three days. My phones will be on roaming, though, so I should be able to visit and post (particularly in Enjolras is Missing!) at least once or twice in a day. Though, I don't think I shall be dearly missed! :lol: I am also preparing for several sporting, educational and theatrical events in August, so in the first two weeks of said month my absence will be a bit long.
