Things and stuff, a non-trauma post.

Boston
I went to a party Saturday night! I was up and down all night, moodwise, but the party had wonderful people at it who talked me through stuff when I needed or changed the subject to ridiculous things when I needed. I have very good people.

And today, michaeldthomas took me to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, which I had never been to! I'd always wanted to go, and it's one of his favorite places in Boston.

This was an excellent choice. And now I want to write a story or something about Isabella Stewart Gardner because wow. Go read about her and the museum.

And the center courtyard was so amazing; reader, I gasped. And then had to just sit there a while in the quiet and the beauty.

Perfect. I will go back at my earliest opportunity.

We took the #1 bus back to Central Square and had iced coffee, then walked down to Harvard Square, ducking into Follow the Honey on the way and having a weird-honey tasting with surprise!Talis, who apparently works there now! Got a treat: Aseda Wild Honey from Ghana. I am a honey junkie.

Oona's, too, to see if their wormhole to the 1950s was currently open (it's not), and Cardullo's (which had puppies in it!) and Curious George's to get a new stuffed animal to replace the shared teddy bear that obviously will no longer do as a sleeping-alone comfort object! I have an incredibly soft stuffed bunny now with the longest ears.

We have been dating for some time, but due to distance/life, this was our actual First Date, and it is now my best first date ever. We've ordered GF pizza and will soon be going to a show, so things continue! He has been of tremendous assistance in helping me connect the dots and get to a point where I'm not flailing still trying to make stuff work in the face of all of this hell, and where I can see clearly.

I haven't told the whole story here because I kept waiting for there to be a time when I could do a post that was only good news! And that time didn't come, because stuff. >.< More soon. Pizza sooner.

Speaking of social! I want to go to the RuPaul's Drag Race Tour on Wednesday! Who's with me?

<3 We knew you'd enjoy the Gardner. <3

Wish I could have been there, too.

Me too! We talked about you the whole time. <3

Aw. <3

Yes.

How did I not know about Follow the Honey?!?!?

I don't know! It's a basement store. Stealthy. But amazing.

What a lovely post. :) I'm happy for you, fellow honey junkie (for everything in the post, not just the honey :D )

I'm glad there is good stuff existing in parallel to the bad stuff.

Oh! And! I finally have my first piece of Wyrding Studios jewelry; thank you for bringing yet another wildly talented woman into my life at whom I can throw money and get beautiful things.

Yay! I'm always happy when more people discover Kyth's beautiful work.

It's been ridiculous, because the good stuff has been there too all along - I've just had to be constantly dealing with the bad stuff too. Like the parts of Wiscon that Judah didn't distort were great, and my time with Michael and Lynne before the con. But Judah manipulated me so much during that time, too.

Apart from the early morning rain, today was a lovely day to be wandering around a city.

Glad you got the chance to do so!

You should.

I may well! I really haven't been able to write anything in months because of this. :( Here's hoping that part of me comes back soon.

Do you know that it is impossible for me to say or hear "Harvard Square" without it being in a horribly outrageous Boston accent? Something like, "Haaaaaavahhhhd Squaaaaaahhhh" which makes me giggle.

Glad for something good for you.

I would LOVE to go to the Gardner with you sometime. And I'd be happy to stop by Oona's with you as well. It's possible that my Thrift-Fu will activate the wormhole.

But I am glad you had a good time!
