    DARRION...LETS SCHEDULE FOR THURS 8/28 ANYWAY SO THAT WHOEVER CAN ATTEND WILL COME. I WILL BE THERE ANYWAY AND WE HAVE SOME NEW MEMBERS TO THE GROUP. MAYBE THEY WILL BE ABLE TO COME OUT ON 8/28....OK WITH U?

  • Trevor G.

    OK. Darrion will Let Us Know if he can do 8/28 or 29 (my guess is Darrion couldn't do a Friday - so perhaps the 28th) since he mentioned he'll be away for the remaining wknds in Aug. IF Darrion can't make it till Sept we need to confirm a desire to meet w/o him. If we decide to meet anyway, then I could do say 6:30p on the 28th. Thoughts?

    August 18

    • Darrion

      I'll let you know if I can do the Thursday.

      Hey Madeleine. I'll have to see. I'm away for the next two weekends. It would have to be a weekday or early September. Or... You guys can set something up without me and catch me up next meeting.

      August 18

    • Trevor G.

      OK. Darrion's unavailable until September, so if a few of us want to meet while he's away, 1st step is choosing a day & time. Madeleine - why don't you recommend 1?

    Same; housecleaning running over and making me very behind schedule. Probably not going to be able to make it unless this is a 2-hour meetup.

    Hey. Red line out of service. I'm running behind. Call[masked] if you want to reach me.

    Menu..cannot eat food on Menu C U next time

    August 16

    • Darrion

      Hey Madeleine. Thr purose of moving it to Tasee D was so we could make noise without the manager bothering us, which happened last meeting.

    Madeleine I apologize last I new we were going to Panera in silver spring, I'm not going to taste D either, I can't get a good coffee there and there isn't space to talk about what's important. If we could meet at the library or some place private that would work for me.

    August 16

    • Darrion

      Hey Nancy. I moved it back to Panera. Thr purose of moving it to Tasee D was so we could make noise without the manager bothering us, which happened last meeting. Sorry you cant make it. Maybe next time.

      August 16

    Hi Nancy. Hi Madeleine. Couple of points. 1) Darrion, correct me if I'm wrong, but the intention wasn't for us to be pressured to buy anything./Since it's Probably Too Late to Move the Meeting, I'm willing to buy something so we can hold a table or booth, 2) In my opinion, there's adequate: a) Room & b) Privacy for us to meet- especially since only 3 of us RSVP-ed.

    • Darrion

      Hey Trev. I moved it back to Panera. Its all good. I'll bring earpieces so we could watch the videos.

      August 16

  • Darrion

    @ Tom. Trevor. See you there.

    August 16

  • Darrion

    Hey guys, I've never been to Tastee before. I thought we would head there because we could make a little more noise at the Diner. I DO not want to people to HAVE to buy anything. I'll move it back to Panera Bread.

    August 16

  • Trevor G.

    No offense intended to anyone, but it seems that the reasons Not To Write - or to meet with other writers are infinite - if finding 1 is the objective. (Trust me. I know this first hand. Ha ha.) Similarly, if you're detemined to write, You'll Find a Way no matter what.

    Nancy - In particular, I was looking fwd to comparing notes with you as a fellow-aspiring comic. I've written a bunch of jokes but never performed, & I was eager to hear about your experience at that stand up comedy course etc.

    - Anyway, I hope you ladies can make it, if not today, then next month. Then, I hope we'll have agreed on
    a venue well in advance so we can maximize attendance. Tom & Darrion, see you guys in a few hours.

    Hi
    I wish Madeleine would change your mind. I don't think this is a "lunch" meeting. I'm not eating lunch. It's a gathering place . That way we can talk about points of interest. Nancy

    August 16

  • Madeleine

    Very Sorry cannot eat from food on

    I can! Also want to add my reason for joining this group is to not only add but acquire better writing skills. Since being a stand up requires writing your own sets, least at this stage.

      You'll be in good company. I write. Trevor's a Standup/Improv guy.

    This meeting is right down my alley. I took classes for stand up comedy at the DC Comedy Lounge in April of this year!
