and so this year kicks into gear
more to the pt my weird mini-philly-week (tue-wed-thur) when i couldn't seem to do anything but buy groceries was going to nicely turn into a little dinner of me cooking (shrimp+avocado+oaxaca stringcheese)adillas and goat chz apple salad and mojitos and maybe gazpacho for myself and ang and tara then angela cancelled then tara cancelled (cuz thunderstorm!!) then alyssa joined then tara is coming anyway (changed her mind) and now maybe ang and jamie will come and all of a sudden this is a party. should call laura (who we drive-by-popsicle-lick'd from the uhaul today) and make it a real total girlfriend party. so anyway i'm post-prepping now but i wanted to say this.
stuff's happening, incidentally: i quit my job, went to new york for cousin's wedding and saw lots of family and also some friends, came back here, saw angela's new place, stopped by (old) work and saw that nothing much had changed, just dwindle continuing, bought a lot of groceries, like i said, biked around in north philly further than i've ever done, including the notorious K&A (kensington and allegheny aves), which is marked with a skull and crossbones on gabe's map of philly, and today i spent all of helping alyssa move her stuff into storage in wphil. was okay.
tomorrow i'm going to chicago for the pfmfest with ang....should be awlsum!!....first time to chicago, staying with my old neighbor (from rochester)'s sister/aunt, who is preposterously accomodating (she was way-unnecessarily embarrassed not to remember my name for like ten seconds, 8+ years out of context...immediately started telling me which planter on the porch she'd leave the key under.) yaeaeah. i'll yell tou all abouy iy.
