The amazing Kate has sent the monthly reminder! If you’re in London, go meet some nice awkward folks and have a chill Saturday.
January meetup, and time for counter -resolutions!
Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 11am onwards on the 4th of January.
It’s the time of year when everyone around us will be resolving to lose weight, become fluent in five languages, run marathons and read War and Peace, possibly all at the same time. The pressure is on, and we’re meant to be finding fault with ourselves.
Instead, please come to the group with a nice, affirmative resolution to donate to others. (I. E. “be nice to yourself”, etc.) Write it down if you can. We’ll put them all in the middle of the table, and anyone who likes one can take it away.
Please let me know if you have other icebreaker ideas for the future. I have a plan for February, but can always use more.
This venue is working out really well.
They sell food in a cafe (standard sandwiches etc.), but they also don’t mind people bringing food in from outside. There are several other local places where you can buy stuff as well. There is a farmers’ market outside with loads of different food options, which can fit most food requirements, or you can also bring a packed lunch.
Our regular meeting area has been getting a bit noisy, so we’re experimenting with shifting up a couple of floors. Meet on the fourth floor, outside the Blue Bar (go up in the JCB lift, lift 7, which is bright yellow and quite entertaining). This is the equivalent place horizontally to our normal location, but two floors up vertically, if that makes sense?
I will have my Cthulhu with me, which looks like this: http://forbiddenplanet.com/3950-cthulhu-baby-plush/ I have long brown hair and glasses.
The venue is accessible via a lift, and has accessible toilets.
The London Awkward group has a Facebook page, which is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/549571375087294/. There is also a thread in the new forums for saying hello.

See you there, with food to share if you like!
(February meetup will be on the 1st.)
Have the best time, everyone!
