Virtual Vodka Night

It started off as a silly Twitter conversation on the night of Australia Day:

Tweeter 1Just cracked my first beer. Its gluten free beer so I'm pretty sure I've completely *effed up whole Aussie Pride thing 
@FrancescaBlogsI'm having vodka and agrum. Does that make me russian??
Tweeter 1Perhaps... ;-)
Tweeter 2And vodka lime and lemonade ?
@FrancescaBlogsWe should find out when russia's national day is and have a virtual vodka together then :-)
Tweeter 1That sounds like fun! I'm in
Tweeter 2best idea I've heard in a long time !!!
@FrancescaBlogsLadies, Google tells me that it's Wed 12th June. Too far away.. 
@FrancescaBlogs: But it has "defender of the fatherland" day too on Sat 23rd Feb. Mark it in your diaries for a virtual vodka night 
Tweeter 2Sounds like a plan - will do !! 
Tweeter 1: Done!

So, here we are, the day is nigh and here is my proposal: a Twitter




Virtual Vodka Night!!!


When: Saturday 23 February 2013, 8:30pm (just to make sure the kids are asleep)
Where: Twitter
What do we do? Drink vodka and tweet!

I hope you can join me. If you do, be sure to say hello to me - I'm @FrancescaBlogs. Tell me what you're mixing your vodka with, where you are, who you're with etc. We'll use the hashtag #virtualvodkanight and see if it trends! And if it doesn't, no biggie, we'll have vodka :-)

Hope to "see" you there.

  3. I'm In! My usual weekend tipple is a good G&T but there's a bottle of grey goose hiding up in the cupboard that I'll now bring out instead. Mmmm, now what to mix it with?

    1. Just realised I only have orange juice - I might have to pick up something a little more exotic!

  4. PMSL - I just looked at my diary this morning and saw our 'date' and thought I must remember to catch the two of you tomorrow night !!!! YAY - now it's official - I'm in !!!! Especially as we aren't going to the Suns game 'cos it's 'an AFL game not a Suns game' so our membership tickets don't count and we have to pay $34.50 to get in !!!! Not going to happen people !
    Have the best Friday and catch you tomorrow night !
    Mwah !

  6. If only I could drink Vodka! My fave way to drink Vodka (when I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding that is!) is with lots of ice, lemonade and apple juice. I think it's called a Bullfrog and I love it! It's my drink of choice.

    1. You could have the ice, lemonade and apple juice without the vodka? Then it really would be virtual vodka!

      Great mix by the way, I might have to pinch that idea :-)

  7. Francesca, you're a genius! I have a loooooooong lunch on tomorrow…. I'll do my best to be vodka game-ready and still using opposable tweeting-thumbs by game time tomorrow night! x

    1. Lara, that will be 7:30 your time I think?

  9. Hey - just thought about it - is that 8.30 AEST so 7.30 my time (not that I am bragging about not having kids to worry about) - just want to make sure I don't miss out on the first hour (or start an hour early and then not be able to tweet anything that makes sense - oh I forgot, I don't normally tweet much that makes sense !!!!)
    See ya tomorrow !

    1. Sorry, I realised after I posted that I didn't specify the timezone.

      It's NSW time with daylight saving. So I think 8:30pm my time would be 7:30pm your time?

      Delete
    2. Yeah - that's right !! See you then ! Tomorrow night !!!

      Delete
  10. I'm not on twitter but I think I need to be lol, sounds fun

  11. I'll be having a few thousand non-virtual beverages with some girlfriends on the 23rd. Have fun - I'll make it to the next one! xx

  12. I love this idea! I'm not a vodka girl but if you accept wine as a substitute, then I'm there!

    1. Pfft, I don't know how to use it very well either. Just write something with @FrancescaBlogs and #virtualvodkanight and I should see it!

      Delete
  14. Hmmm, I'll be at home and the cupboard is bare so it may have to be a 'virtual' vodka at the virtual party ...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh I love the idea, but I'm doing feb fast! :( will have to avoid the party tomorrow, cause it will be too much temptation!
