Hi.

I know we've discussed this about ten million times in the past, but I was thinking, what with the summer on its way and all, is it not about time we did an HSN meet up?

Just an afternoon, maybe spent pissing about in a park or sitting in a cafe if it's raining, actually speaking to the people we've known for God knows how long now.

Anyone think it's a good idea?

Can discuss time, location, etc. later...

ETA
If you could tell me here if you'd definitely like to be involved, I'll make a list. And say where you'd like it to be.

I'm thinking end of July/beginning of August?

I can't encourage underage drinking, as many of our members are under 18.

But yeah, Glasgow, Edinburgh or Aberdeen would work. Big cities are best for public transport.

Hmm, true. Those who will be wanting to meet up will probably be over 18 anyway. But there will probably be a few under-18s...a few bottles of buckys will do them wink.gif

I'm joking, of course.

I don't know anyone from on here in the real world. I'll just turn up then most likely be mugged.

Final details won't be put up on the board in case we have scary people turn up, it'll all be done through PM. If we can decide on a date and a city, then I'll work out somewhere to meet and a time. :]

I'm a monster.

Not a very scary one, seeing as I'm a bit of a titch, but underneath my clothes there are indeed scales.

I'll go if it's either Glasgow or Edinburugh. Aberdeen's a bit far out of the way.

Sounds fun either way ^^

Yeah, it seem the majority of people here are either from Glasgow or Edinburgh. Either of these locations are fine.

I can't go if its Glasgow, unless someone's willing to come out to Bathgate and give me a lift, which I doubt will happen.

And I wont go if drinks involved or anything like that because...well, im a big spoilsport.

If its Edinburgh I might consider it, though I tend to get nervous about these things because I'm rubbish with coming up with conversation. So I'd end end the loner in the corner.

trust you to ask that!! tongue.gif


i'd be up for going though. but probably only if its glasgow. unless a band of us glasgow people were gonna meet up & all travel to that edinburgh place together. i'm a big chicken you see.

when i'm dancin' with you,
tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

Then we could be loners together...oh wait, I'm probably not going anyway. Can't be bothered with misunderstanding or just plain getting confused by what people say, because of my subsantial hearing loss. laugh.gif The rest of you, have fun anyway. smile.gif
