We got off to a late-ish start, which was contributed to by the sausage incident. JD's phone had been behaving badly and not charging properly, and we set out to get his phone looked at and hit his bank. Unfortunately, the banks were closed and the phone place was not the sort he needed. Furthermore, I was starting to get a bit of an agoraphobia/claustrophobia attack just from driving. Instead of meeting up in Golden Gate Park, JD and ursamajor determined that we would meet up at a bookshop, in this case A Different Light. So that's what we did.
Public transit is fun. I had been suffering from generalized OW WTF MY KNEES AND LEGS, which was a fun positive feedback loop involving knees not wanting to be bothered, lack of my usual walks with my aunt, the lack of walks eroding my endurance, and the lack of endurance contributing to my legs having had quite enough of this foolishness. I brought my umbrella to lean on, and this was a good choice.
We wound up at A Different Light reasonably before the rest of the party, and poked around. I found books. JD found books. ursamajor arrived, with hyounpark in tow, along with two people I'd never met before. I spied Ursie with no problem, and there was immediate hugging, and catching up on the things that had been happening in her absence. I found a card about a Saint of Modern Communication, with a Blackberry. I showed it to Ursie. She showed it to Hyoun. He was able to identify the model. We were in hysterics. There was gossip.
At length, we decided it was lunchtime. (It was getting quite late in the afternoon.) We went a few doors down to a taqueria (La Tortilla).
Since this was us meeting up, there were nachos (not Alton Brown anal nachos, however).
We wandered off and got gelato. I had vanilla, rose, nutella, and ... something. It was all tasty.
JD spied event posters, including a DJ Earworm.
Everybody else checked out the history display; I stayed outside as I was getting very tired and my everything hurt and my assorted phobias were getting crankier. I took the opportunity to take pictures. The hot guy from the bookstore walked past at one point.
Eventually we went our separate ways.
It was great fun!
