pride

wrapping up and planning ahead

I've been fairly lazy most of this weekend, so this afternoon I walked down to Tags to purchase a box fan (as well as a few other things) -- only to find it was closed for the holiday (as was The Caning Shoppe, but that was less of a surprise).  I had some grocery shopping to do anyway, so I did that at Shaw's.

The walk wasn't too bad, though I reaffirmed that the sandals I'm fond of aren't great for long walking and also that I could totally do without it going above 80F.

It also induced nappitude.  Huh.  We'll see if that messes with my ability to sleep tonight.  Parenthetical: I am so pleased that we are still in that part of the season wherein it actually cools off overnight.

Last night, Tiffany mentioned that she's taking a summer ASL class (one of the CWM members is deaf, and she feels so so stupid that she can't do ASL, despite the fact that he's very good at lip-reading etc. so it's not an actual serious hindrance to conversation), so I jumped at the chance to take them with her.  For years I'd been thinking I would like to learn it, but without anyone to practice with I knew it wouldn't stick.

Later last night, Ari was asking me if I was doing anything for Pride -- which is like two weeks long.  My instinct was "not so much", which of course surprises no one, but looking at the calendar I am excited about churching it up that Saturday.

Original Roomie's working on Tom Stoppard's "Indian Ink" at BCA Plaza (June 15-July 1) which looks interesting.

I'm also considering going to see the Nathan Fillion-Keri Russell film Waitress.
