Discussion on beige_alert's LJ makes a thought bubble up in my head.
Champaign doesn't have enough filkers to support a housefilk, but there are a reasonable number of fannish people. It really shouldn't be necessary for me to go to a con to see them, or to wait until a con comes along to have the chance to interact with someone who has something more interesting to talk about than sports. But aside from the couple who show up at the weekly bridge game at my mom's place, that seems to be where my social life is.
This is dumb.
If there is some kind of regular or even frequent irregular get-together of people I know, for dinner or a party or to go to a movie or just to talk or whatever, please tell me about it. If there isn't, then we should fix that.
As far as I know, most of the people I want to reach with this message aren't on LJ, and if they are they probably don't read my journal, so I'll be trying to reach them by email.
