Community Fun - The Life and Thoughts of Zach

03:38 am - Community Fun

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

How sad is it that the 4 hours spent in the blissful company of community friends tonight was probably the most social time I've spent with people from this town in months.

It was really nice to just shoot the shit. I worry that I talked to much but people kept listening and asking questions and seeming interested.

It was recentering, reinvigorating to chat about community projects with actual community people instead of head down rushing forward with stuff not noticing the people around the projects.

And next....VACATION in Chicagoland. Yay!

Just gonna be hanging out with duck2ducks, boldmoves, peppergray, spillshercoffee, boannan, aletheis (if she's back), bdar (if he's around), and perhaps some other folks. We have NO plans yet. I tried to make some plans with those jokers last night and it was chaos. So my plan is just to land at duck2ducks pad and see what transpires. I imagine movies will be watched, games will be played, frisbee will be thrown, ethiopian food will be eaten, BBQ will be burned, drinks will be drunk, and just chillin' out will be chilled. If you're interested in hanging out with us geeks for such chaos you are certainly welcome. Email me.

I tried to talk them all into going to the American Music Festival at FitzGerald's but the prevailing opinion was that Berwyn was too far away and that we'd miss the fireworks if we went on Friday ("fuck the 'works" I said). So I don't think that's going to happen. I may try to make it happen anyway.

Maybe I'll have better luck convincing them to do a TMLMTBGB run. Or a late trip to Rosa's Lounge.

You know anything cool happening? We're hoping to avoid the Taste.

Plans are currently in flux, because most plans we make tend to go kazooey anyway. Winging it always seems the best approach.

Seems likely he might stay with me (Lincoln Square). We're talking a BBQ on the 4th. Whatever happens the rest of the weekend, happens. He's got a BBQ at his sister's place in Rogers Park on Sunday.

Then again, no part of Chicago is really far away from any other part when you've got transportation, so wherever you may be is no obstacle, I'm sure!

I'm on Sunnyside, just northwest of Montrose & Western.

Far far too crazy this weekend, but Zarf returns in but two short weeks! Perhaps there will be more crazy LJ meetage then.
