[Eastertide, day 42] joy sadhana
I think next year I wanna plan to go to Boston Youth Pride.
@mmaesturtevant Youth pride: a sea of "free hugs" signs.
@etana [a "make way for queerlings: happy youth pride!" sign]
@eustaciavye77 There are no words that properly encompass the adorableness that is Boston Youth Pride.
@eustaciavye77 Today is also the zombie march. Some of the kids here are fighting for equal rights for queer zombies
Instead I used all my out-with-people energy at the end of the day. I biked to Goodwill, found a sparkly purple short-sleeved shirt which is probably not quite professional enough for work but which I may wear during the summer anyway. I biked to work and printed out some stuff for tomorrow and following. I successfully biked to Pub Church
(I opted not to make a lefthand turn crossing Comm. Ave. -- doing the cross in two parts instead -- but I did find the place no problem). Xochitl was having people [Amanda and Andrew and Erin+William] over to hang out afterward and I decided to go, figuring I could always bike home. I got to her apartment no problem (she gave good directions, and it was fairly straightforward, despite my never having been on those streets before). At various times during the night I considered leaving (hi, my 7:30am alarm), but I ended up staying until we all of a piece decided at 11:40 to leave. I biked home uneventfully (low traffic and mostly didn't hit red lights) -- I turned the wrong way on Mass Ave. coming off of Putnam, but I remedied that fairly quickly (I knew it was wrong once I hit the Plough and Stars, and I'd suspected earlier).
