Anyone up for a virtual jolly-up?

Events people say they're coming to until a day or so before the event.

Anyone up for a virtual jolly-up?

It must be feasible, and possibly at a time to suit everyone around the world, assuming some people don't mind a 4am pint. Or perhaps we can just sort out a Euro-American function as a start.

Of course I will hint at attending but ultimately fail.

Anyway maybe we can revive this idea.

Perhaps we could try for an international jolly up on Zoom.

We could pick a weekend - Saturday maybe? And pick say 8pm UK time, which would be 3pm on the US east coast and I think 2pm in Texas - not too early for a beer? - and of course 9pm in western Europe. I realise it may be tricky for our far east.

There would probably have to be some structure, because we can't have side conversations - maybe a quiz, or we could all give a brief update on life and recommend one song or album. Or something.

Anyway it may be fun.

Anyone up for it?

You could easily have side conversations. I do Zoom meetings for hours Monday through Friday. You can have breakout sessions, or use the chat function.
