Collaborative Poetry And International Mahjong


You will recall that yesterday I decided to echo the sentiments found on an old postcard as my Facebook status, in order to see what responses it brought forth. Would the social networkers of the 21st century be as creative, as literate, and as imaginative as those Edwardian postcard writers of 100 years ago? I should have had no doubts - with Facebook friends like mine not only have we wonderful responses but we have invented a complete new genre - collaborative poetry. Thank you Marilyn and Vicki.

Last night we established the Rock Tavern mahjong team which will be ready by the start of next season to participate in the pub mahjong league. The only slight problem is that the only other pub teams I have been able to find are in the USA! Perhaps we need to abandon the idea of a weekly match and think more in terms of an American tour. I would welcome responses from any other pub mahjong teams with a view to establishing an international league.

  4. I've also always wanted to play mahjong but have only heard of others who play and have never actually met anyone. The only bars in my neck of the woods are country, with the only games being pool and darts. Ah well....

  7. Surprisingly, Mahjong can get players quite animated. A group of researchers used to play at lunchtime in the university staff club, with whoops and shrieks aplenty. I've long been threatening to have a go myself, having been seduced by the software version.

  8. The fenders really highlight the whitewall tires as well, yet another feature that makes it one of the flashiest and fun-looking cruisers around Affordable Cruiser Bicycle.
