Oh Most Respected Elders, Bitter New Agers and Axe-Wielding Youths, as promised, I bring the horrors of social contact to you as a shiney little New Years gift! Now, in the past, many successful social events have been spontaneous. I don't want to lose that aspect of things and so I am planning on cultivating this thread in two directions... 1. Planned Events: Revolving around going out for coffee, drinks, movies (Star Wars/Lucasfilm related and otherwise) and other such 'normal' activities. I want to keep them primarily 'all ages/paycheck friendly', so that people who aren't old enough to frequent pubs and the like still feel like they can participate, but as I do like to indulge in a big night out on the milk, I won't ever discourage the organisation of such! These can be organised by ANYONE, so don't feel like you have to leave everything up to me 2. Spontaneous Events: An organic take on the social event. If you're going to see a band or a film and want some company, post the details in the thread! Seen some cool graffiti on the way home? Tell us about it so we can check it out. Think we should all see the latest exhibition at ACMI or want to educate us as to why we all are mongoloids for not even trying to understand the brilliance of your latest creation? Explain! Think that a gory afternoon of violence and video games via Doom and Resident Evil movies will cheer us all up? Going to the footy/cricket/soccer? Well, you get the idea. Doing something, post it here. It will either get you some company or at least a bit of discussion! Now, I will be organising outings when I can, but don't feel like you have to go through me to catch up or meet people! And so, I open up the world of social engagement to you all and hope you take advantage of it!
