Actually, I'll wait a bit until you guys are sure you want to do something like that. He is a very open and friendly man, though a bit eccentric at times (aren't all music/art geniuses that way?).

I think he would be open to doing something like this, but I'll check with him if and when you guys are sure.

well book selected last night was the time travellers wife - audrey niffeneger ... Tonia's selection and i wasn't going to argue with her !! :roll:

as for meeting SP. Somtow sounds like a great idea for the 2nd or 3rd meeting .... either before or after we read the book !! what do others think !!

btw .... thanks to Jim, Jens, Neung, Tonia and Dtan for coming along last night .... was a good 1st meeting and made a pleasant change !! now get reading !!!!!!!!!!

Was the book selected before or after you did your private dance for Tonia? Is the selection a metaphor for something?

PS Where is the vid? I have been searching Youtube .....

Well I could not exactly intrude upon you and Tonia while you were shaking your booty in the bathroom now could I?

BTW, where is sweet SB today? Suffering from trauma or busy on the phone booking copious dancing lessons for you?

I read it last week and enjoyed it, but I'll be back in Hua Hin on November 2, so the date of the meeting doesn't matter to me.

I enjoyed meeting you guys.

cheers Jim ... i'm glad somebody (apart from me) has read the damm book !! :D

maybe it was a bit too ambitious for a first book for the club as it's over 500 pages and can be a tad difficult to follow at times ... ok kids we'll try something a bit easier for next time !!
