Social Evening for All Write Teamsters

  • Jul 4, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Updated Venue: 26 June  9.30 pm 

______________________________________

Calling all Write Teamsters including those not in the SSBP - come join us this evening. 

Get to know one another and discover what our authors are doing in the SSBP. Perhaps after speaking to our authors, you might want to sign up for SSBP-2 (planned to start in late 2015) or join the CNBP set for early 2015. 

At the very least, you get to meet everyone in person.

Although the stated time is 7.00 to 9.00 pm - obviously, you can wander in any time and stay as long as you want or until the bouncer throws you out - whichever the sooner!

Limited seats - late comers will have to stand (at the bar) - which is not a bad idea. Hick!

Oh, one small detail - 

All meals and drinks are to the individual’s account :-)

Gotcha!

    Hello Teamsters - now that we’ve met in a strictly social setting, I’ve learned much. As a serial murderer, I thought I’ll be the oddball. However, after meeting two werewolves, three wannabe zombies and one distant cousin of the Count - I felt right at home. Cinderella left behind her crystal slipper - my, what large feet. That wig left on the floor looked quite familiar. I checked the internet and saw a notification from poor Rapunzel. Don’t worry, dear - armed with a ladder, I’ll get up there and return the flowing locks to you, as I know you’ve a hot date with your prince tonight. Anyway, I thought ‘bald’ was in. Why am I going on like this? Obviously, having consumed only three beers for the whole evening, I’m suffering from alcohol withdrawal symptoms. I’ll return with a more coherent comment. Jeers! Or, should that be, cheers!

      I'm sure I've read that quote somewhere before, Fiona. But google doesn't show up anything.

      July 13, 2014

    • Fiona T.

      And now it's stuck in my head as one of those "must do" things. How about a challenge, Wai Chii? Let's find out who said it.

  • Ho Ying S.

    Oh dear, I spelt your name wrong, Eric, my bad.

    July 7, 2014

    • Eric A.

      "my bad" - ? LOL! That's a new style sentence structure :-)

  • Ho Ying S.

    Sorry that I had to leave early as I had a long weekend ahead. Looks like I missed out on some of the fun. =( By the way, Eruc, I just sent you my two reviews. Let me know if you receive them. =)

    • Sally

      Hi Sasi, it was wonderful meeting and interacting with you and everyone in a different environment. Eric actually "smile", or I had a drink too much. Everyone looks great.

      1 · July 5, 2014

    • Eric A.

      What do you mean, you actually saw me smile - of course I smile - - - - sometimes - - - - I think.

      1 · July 5, 2014

    July 4, 2014

      Oh dear, Wai Chii - I saw your notification only this morning. You did not mention anything amiss last night. Trust and hope that all went well.

      July 5, 2014

  • Christopher N.

    Hey peeps, sorry but I'm going to have to miss tonight's session. Coughing my eyeballs out... Was really looking forward to tonight's drinks :( I'll buy a round for everyone in our next social session.

    1 · July 4, 2014

    • Eric A.

      This is too bad, Christopher, and Aaron kept all the jugs for himself. Hope you recover well and soon. Have a good rest.

      July 5, 2014

    • Sally

      Hi Chris, we were all waiting for you to do the "Toast to Arthur" with our Lager, oh geez, that was stout !! Never mind, they all taste the same already...

    So sorry guys. Something urgent came up. The next time I hope!

    July 4, 2014

    • Eric A.

      No worries, Melissa - very considerate of you to let us know. Yes, there'll always be another time. For purposes of record, I'll show you as a 'no show' but don't let it bother you. Cheers!

      July 5, 2014

  • Aaron

    Any reservations made? Where do we wait?

    July 4, 2014

    • Aaron

      Table for 14?

      July 4, 2014

    • Eric A.

      I like your style, Aaron - Sally and I were seated inside and you stood outside and tried to make reservations. It is all Christopher's fault - his job to stand outside with two jugs!

    Had to finish some work at the last minute

    1 · July 4, 2014

    Someone asked for self-editing tips > please click on Pages. (If you're unfamiliar navigating this website - see above - top line below The Write Team banner). Hope these tips are useful. Cheers!

  • Eric A.

    Hello Miguel, happy that you're joining us. Nothing like fermented fruit juices to trigger creativity :-)

    June 28, 2014

  • Aaron

    Hi Eric and all, would it be alright if I bring a friend?

    June 28, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Hello Aaron - Generally, I'm afraid no, as we want to set aside time to interact with Teamsters. We hardly have time during the sessions. However, if the person is someone special - girlfriend or spouse - of course, yes - bring her along, as we don't want to upset your Friday evening plans. Cheers!

      1 · June 28, 2014

    • Aaron

      Awww...shucks...

      Not a problem. Just a closest buddy of mine who grew intrigue with the group after all the positive feedbacks I have fed him through his ear canals. :P

      1 · June 28, 2014

  • Wai Chii N.

    Oh gosh, I've been wondering what those jug jokes were about for over a month (yes, I'm always slow to the party).

    I must check those emails more often=.="

    1 · June 25, 2014

    • Wai Chii N.

      You mean alcoholic right? :D

      June 27, 2014

    • Eric A.

      I'm looking forward to see how this conversation pans out :-)

      June 28, 2014

  • Fiona T.

    sighs, this meetup navigation is still such a labyrinth to me! As conscientious as I've been exploring, I've obviously missed this thread here, sorry... Eric, some people I spoke with had expressed interest in SSBP2 or non-fiction writing. Can they come if they wish, or must they commit to be a Write Teamster first?

    June 27, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Finally - we rec'd your RSVP and it took an email reminder too - LOL! This Social is exclusive to Write Teamsters and NOT open to members of the public - sorry. Michelle is bringing a friend but his membership - which I've received - is pending approval. I wish this Social for Teamsters to mingle and get to know one another better - something we don't get the time for during the sessions - as you've not attended a session yet and therefore don't know how intensive these are. Sorry, Fiona but membership has its privileges. Thank you for your understanding. Cheers!

      June 27, 2014

    • Eric A.

      I should have added, Fiona, that if the guest is a special person - spouse or someone very close - yes, please bring them along. Hope this clarifies. Incidentally, you saw last night 27 June - how tight the time was - it will be the same for every session. Cheers!

      June 28, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Hello Chris, good of you to join us. The person checking out the venue is yet to confirm and hopefully she comes through by tomorrow - she is running late. Once in - we'll update the joint we're meeting at in Clarke Quay. Cheers!

    June 26, 2014

  • Michelle Ayn T.

    Hi Eric, can I bring a friend?

    June 20, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Hello Michelle, perhaps he can read our requirements > click on Page > Membership Request Profile Questions > and resubmit his request. Cheers!

      1 · June 22, 2014

    • Michelle Ayn T.

      Ok sure Eric, I'll let him know!

      1 · June 24, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Hello Sachin - good to know that you're joining us for the social. I emailed you (via MeetUp) this morning for your email address - did you receive, can you reply with your address - thank you!

    June 18, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Thank you, Sachin - I sent you an email moments ago regarding Session One on 27 June. Cheers.

      June 19, 2014

    • Sachin S.

      Got it ! Thanks Eric !

    Hello, I am new to the group. Hoping that I'll get to learn more about the group and the members at this social event.

    June 18, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Good one, Mickey - we'll catch up on 4 July :-)

      June 18, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Hello Mickey, good to receive your RSVP - would you like to post a greeting to the other Write Teamsters here? Cheers!

    June 17, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Good to have you join us, Ying Shing. We nominate you the driver for the evening. Anyone wishes to second that :-)

    June 11, 2014

    • Sally

      I agree that Ying Shing should be the driver. She doesn't have a driving license to lose.

      1 · June 11, 2014

    • Eric A.

      I used 'g' in Ying Shin and you followed suit, Sally. My mistake. Sorry, Ying Shin :-)

      June 14, 2014

  • Ho Ying S.

    I got no driving license, so cannot drive. Need someone else to do the driving.

    1 · June 11, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Not to worry, Ying Shin > watch the drivers on the road - most can't drive too :-)

      June 14, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Hello Wai Chii - great to have you join us for the social. Some say the quiet ones tend to be more boisterous at socials. You were pretty quiet during the Synopsis Session - Hmmm, I wonder :-)

    June 14, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Lovely to have you join in Michelle. Three people at a social > > > One said, I’m vegan and I don’t eat meat > > > Another said, I’m married and therefore not a vegan > > > The third said, I love fruit juice and that’s why I drink wine > > > All are health nuts!

    1 · June 7, 2014

    • Michelle Ayn T.

      Ha ha ha.. Looking forward to this Eric, I've let some other writer friends of mine know about this evening and group, I hope they will attend too!

      1 · June 7, 2014

  • evonnlyn

    Allo! Thanks for your warm hello, Eric. Two suggestions: VeganBurg which is very good. Or a bistro in Everton Park that's small and cosy - conducive for good conversations. Nearest MRT is Outram Park, Look forward to the other suggestions.

    June 6, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Good suggestions both, Evonne - we have a Socials Organizer and I'm sure she'll consider all venues before suggesting one. Fiona - a couple of more for your pot and over to you. Cheers!

      June 6, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Hey! What happened to our Socials Organizer - no RSVP yet. Call 991 - the aliens got her!

      June 6, 2014

  • SRK

    You guys are really "milking" that joke if you know what I mean :-) ! Looking forward to catching up again. I confess that I've got my laptop opened, the word document saved and not a single line typed on the page - waiting for inspiration!

    June 5, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Well, that's a start, Sasi - as one person is still searching for his laptop; another complained that the dog ate his laptop; and the third person said, aliens appeared in Chapter 13 and confiscated his laptop. I wondered whether was it because his sci fi story was so good - he said yes, the aliens died laughing at his reply and disappeared into thin air. Either way, his laptop is gone. So, you're ahead!

      1 · June 6, 2014

    • SRK

      Hahaha needed that laugh Eric :-) Happy Friday to you and the other Teamsters!

      1 · June 6, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Hello Evonne - good to see you here - post something in reply when you're free and as you wish, keep the conversation going. I'm trying to become a vegan - that's why I practise on grape juice - the slightly fermented variety. I need plenty of practise :-)

    June 6, 2014

  • Christopher N.

    I would gladly hold 3 if I had an extra hand!

    June 5, 2014

    • Sally

      Let's have a balanced diet of great food and lots of drinks.

      1 · June 5, 2014

    • Eric A.

      Good to have you join us too, Sally and let's share the fare - you have the "balanced diet" and I'll have "lots of drinks"! Now that is a nice balance, me thinks :-)

      June 6, 2014

  • Eric A.

    Hello Sasi - Hick! - welcome aboard.
