New home!

By joinpants at 11:18 am on Saturday, August 25, 2007

If you’re reading this it means that one of us is very smart.  We’ve been moving web hosts for a few days now.  Very dramatic behind the scenes, but if we’ve done everything else right, you shouldn’t notice any differences.  Clever, eh?

If you do notice any issues (aside from the broken google calendar), hit us up in the comments.

Work over, now it’s time to get back to the fun.

Good Luck Kaydo!!!

By lukeo at 9:30 am on Friday, August 10, 2007

PANTS would like to wish Kaydo the very very best of luck for the City to Surf on the weekend. Look forward to photos and hopefully a review of the 14km killer!
Once again Kaydo proves to us that she is certainly up for a crazy adventure and I love it!

CBR snow

By kaydo at 4:39 pm on Tuesday, July 17, 2007

Word on the riotact and elsewhere is that it will snow in canberra tonight and tomorrow below 500m. As Canberra is at 564m above sea level, we should all expect to be 64m under snow tomorrow*. PANTS plan is to get outdoors early (i.e. pre-work) with a snow scooter:

Leave a message in the comments if you want to join us. If it doesn’t snow, we will probably sleep.

* No scientific basis for this statement whatsoever, but it will snow.

Canberra Glassworks

By kaydo at 7:46 pm on Tuesday, July 3, 2007

This time, PANTS is the last to jump on the bandwagon. You may have seen the ads on tv for the Canberra Glassworks, and naturally we want to get involved. If you want to just check the place out, it’s just near the Old Bus Depot Markets and is open 9am-5pm Wed-Sat, 10-4pm Sunday. Check out the Canberra Glassworks website for more details.

If you prefer to take a whim a tad too far, as we usually do, then you might be interested in the classes. You can become Mr Glass:

Mr Glass

Yes, I realise that wasn’t the source of the nickname, but it fits my story better than brittle bones.

So, there’s a few different options to help you emerge yourself in all things glassy. Assuming you can’t attend the weekday workshops, the options we have are to attend an action packed course over a few weeknights or do a half day workshop on a weekend. I vote night. Upcoming fun:

July 11, 18, 25, Aug 1

Intro classes:

  • Glass blowing ($450)
  • Kiln forming ($395)
  • Glass casting ($395)
  • August 8,15,22,29

  • Bead making, an introduction ($420)
  • This isn’t obviously a full list of all courses available, it’s really the ones that interest me. Check out the site for other options.

    If you’re one of the cool kids on the net, you probably already know about twitter. I really don’t see it as a compelling application for most that aren’t stalkers, but for us it’s rather dandy.

    If you’re that way inclined you can subscribe for SMS, email or IM updates from joinpants. You’ll see our current status on the column on the right side of this page. This gets dynamically updated due to the genius of the internet. When we’re in the midst of a big event, we’ll sms an update about our activity or location, if you want to join us, it’s an easy way to find us.

    yay for technology.

    (also, the suggest an event form is working again if you want to, um, suggest stuff.)
