THE ABCD OF A SCHOOL NIGHT OUTAugust 19, 2012

I WON'T lie, the thought of a mid-week night out on the town - not even my town - was the last thing I wanted to do last Thursday. Sure, sure. When I said yes it all seemed like a good idea. Fun even. But as the day drew closer and I was packing my bag for a couple of days away from home, suddenly it didn't seem such a good idea.
But, boy, was I wrong. I had such a good night at last week's ABCD Meet-up. A rowdy room of artists, bloggers, creatives and designers, a glass of vino, a kick-arse curry and stimulating conversation were exactly what I needed to drag myself out of a mid-week funk.
And that goodie bag.
The theme was "sharing" and ABCD'ers shared favourite recipes, their favourite places online (and in real life) and baked treats. My contribution were crochet-edged handkerchiefs pinned with a message: "Do share your happy tears. Don't share your sniffles". I hoped it might match the discussion group I led on the night about what we do and don't share online.
So go on, when faced with a school night out do you saddle up and get amongst it, or do you bail?
If you live in Sydney, or Brisbane, and haven't been to one, pop over and "like" the ABCD Meet-up Facebook page so you know when the next one comes around. They're usually held in winter and summer. See you there.
