Met up with JD and Lacey, hugs all around. Walked to LJ Central, were collected by janinedog and henrylyne, walked to South Park via the tree-huggers and the tree that really needed a hug (street tree tipping over), collected other people including tupshin, got lunch, had lunch and chatted a lot, walked back to LJ Central, did not see any orange shirts, walked to a Muni train station, waited for and then caught a train that featured chattering teenage girls, debarked at Castro, wandered up and down Castro a bit, collected a rainbow disco ball for JD, gelato for us all, and books!! My knees having started to give out, we all went our separate ways.
I took the Muni train to where JD said there was a BART station. Unfortunately, the place I got off was not the most BART-y looking location, and I compounded the problem by walking in the wrong direction, based on some rather logical but wrong guesses. A quick call to amberfox repaired the situation, and I was soon emBARTed, although not before running into an unsavory character in the station. The Information Man, who is homeless, is more savory than that dude, or at least has better social. Just sayin'. I enjoyed BART quite happily, and disembarked at the correct station. Guide Dog Aunt picked me up.
My knees were being a pain in the, well, knee, so at length I was situated with frozen peas on them. This caused amusement in IRC.
I shall leave you with an amusement, NSFW, found by one or more of my esteemed colleagues: Spanky! Spanky!
