    lol

    Neither could I, personally I would prefer to bowl in the afternoon or something then go for a meal and drinking. But no one seems to want to come up with suggestions I'll give them a little while then start to e-mail them otherwise I am gonna just plan it and they will get upset when they haven't had they're input.

    it'll be a piece of piss to get bowling / curry / pub / guesthouses organised in Glasgow...
    that's a fairly standard, wide appeal day out, I suppose....

    and the pub crawl can easily be
    tweaked to incorporate good shops and sight-seeing...


    on an entirely unrelated matter, anyone fancy nipping into the Renfield St UGC this afternooin (2.30pm) to catch AOTC before it drops out of the schedules??

    If it wasn't Friday then I'd be up for it but I need to take the little chap to swimming lessons on a Friday and they start at 5.30 so I wouldn't make it.

    "taking the lttle chap to swimming lessons" sounds like a sexual euphimism for something really quite sick [face_laugh]

    nevermind, Padawan, I'll tell you if anything different happens this time through...... :D

    [Shmi] Yes, I'm feeling a lot better now Ani - lets go home and I'll make us a cup of tea[/Shmi]

    What about the Edinburgh Film Festival. Samuel L. Jackson is going to be there and I'll have a press pass for industry screenings and what not. :)

    Well said LV, it doesn't take much to confuse me so lets keep this simple and relevant to the September meet.

    aye..... stay on target..

    Entfirst's film festival idea is nice, but we'd need Press passes for between 10 and 20 people to make that work....

    We've got a date (Sep 28) and a place (Glasgow) agreed with a bunch of people now, and the next step is sorting out the detail.......

    and Wasted Wendy, of course you are welcome.. :)

    I very much doubt I'll manage this meet up due to it being on a saturday and me having work on a saturday (very earliest I would be able to get down would be 7.30ish)

    Although I'm down on the 18th august (a sunday) if anyone's interested in a quick drink

    I know people aren't bering very helpful of things to do, I guess it's down to us to just decide what to do.

    Unless we all agree before hand I suggest this.

    1. We arrange a meeting place and time.
    2. DD and I, and other Glaswegians outline possible activities.
    3. People decide what they want to do and go off in groups or altogether and do it.
    4. We arrange a further meeting place and time, several hours later.
    5. We eat, we drink or locals can go home if they like.

    This means that people can do what they like - bowling, Laserquest, shopping, cinema. But we then all meet up later for food and drink. This allows locals to be there all day or part of the day as appropriate. e.g. Andy could then come later and not feel that he has missed out on the whole day.

    We would pick an easy to find central meeting place.
