Blogger Meet Up in Taipei Dec 3

Jerome Keating passed this to me:


++++++++++++

Just a reminder that the Breakfast Club will be having its monthly meeting to share fellowship and discussion on topics that interest us all. (Side note, everyone pays for their own breakfast--there is no free lunch, nor is there a free breakfast!))

The Place is at Jukes (the name may be changed to Al's Resataurant but the location is the same.) #48--6 HoPing East Rd. Sec. 3. Phone # is 8732--3667 That is 3 doors west of the Burger King at the Southwest corner of Tun Hua S. Rd and HoPing East Rd. (Easily accessible from the Liu Changli MRT station) or 285, 235, and numerous other buses.
Time: 9:30 AM.
Topic: Open, however since we have such a diverse group, Robin made an excellent suggestion last time--everyone bring a list of the five books that have most influenced your life and be prepared to expound on such.
Also to give everyone a chance to network and meet and find out each's diverse interests etc. , switching places throughout breakfast is encouraged.
Some thoughts to ponder:
"Speech is civilization itself. The word . . . preserves contact--it is silence which isolates." (Thomas Mann) Join us.
"Every man becomes, to a certain degree, what the people he generally converses with are." (Philip Stanhope) That's why we aim at diversity.
"Too much agreement kills a chat." (Eldridge Cleaver) However leave your weapons at home.
"The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously." (Hubert Humphrey)
"Hanging is too good for a man who makes puns; he should be drawn and quoted." (Fred Allen)
"Practically anything you say will seem amusing if you're on all fours." (P.J. O'Rourke)
Having said that we hope to see you there; invite any friends you want and pass this on.

Hmmm... too much going on this weekend: elections, the writing workshop at Tunghai, and now a blogger meet in Taipei...

(How'd you like that subtle plug for the workshop? heh heh...)

Daniel, what's your friday schedule like? I'm thinking of heading up too. Can you get to Taichung on Friday? Anyone else want to caravan up with me?

I'll try to make it. I hear the blueberry pancakes are pretty good there.

Daniel said...

Sorry Michael, I wasn't meaning to be rude. Just got very confused...

See you on the third :)

Michael Turton said...

I didn't think you were rude! AT ALL!

*HUG*
