"this song can never be long enough, to express every longing" [ani, "wish i may"]
MaryAlice went to go outside at one point (10:30 maybe?) and with her hooded coat and her scarf you could barely see her face. I laughed, as I couldn't quite bring myself to wear gloves
I went over to Morgan (a building next door to mine) mid-afternoon in just my sweater, loving it.( Friday: CAUMC game nightCollapse )( Saturday: Alyssa's partyCollapse )Sunday:
I was lazy and slept through church, but I left my house around 2:15 to go to the Boston Women Play Pool Club Social
and lo, there was snow on the ground. Heart.
I got there and wasn't really clear where this group was and was thinking about how I'm a terrible pool player and my hair is lame and how last night had reminded me how bad I am at talking to people I don't know and yeah, I turned around and left.
This did mean I could go to Cambridge Welcoming Ministries
(worship services are at CAUMC; yes I enjoy the irony -- since CAUMC is in Somerville). ( Read more...Collapse )
During the book discussion one of the guys (David?) mentioned At Swim, Two Boys
and I perked up, not so much because I have particular love for that book, but because I've read it -- and because he had mentioned it in the context of "Queer Book Worms is reading that this month," and of course that concept piqued my interest. He talked to me afterward and apparently they meet at Arlington St. Church [the UU church where I went to that talk
] basement the first Thursday of each month
at 7:30. This of course conflicts with CAUMC small group, so I am dilemma-izing.

FLASHLIGHT - Invented in the 1890s, the device called the "portable electric light" relied on batteries whose charge lasted only a few seconds, meaning that it had to be used to illuminate something that absolutely needed to be seen in that instant---in a flash, in other words. Batteries were much improved in only a few years, but the moniker "flashlight" stuck in America, while many other English-speaking countries call the device a "torch."
