Nice surprise, I got a facebook message from Herschel. All well with him. I have to answer it tonight.
Spent a wonderful day in the city, mostly at Pridefest, but also at Union Square, which is where the fest ended, after starting at Waverly Place, or vice versa. I picked up a lot of swag, and got a beautiful facepaint job, which sadly I will have to wash off as soon as I finish posting this.
We ate brunch at a place that I can't remember the name of, I got smoked salmon and cream cheese, with tomato, and cucumber on brown bread. It was delicious.
Afterward in Union Square we went to Forbidden Planet and the Strand, and had dinner at the poke place. Then we went to Barnes and Noble, and I bought the new Ben Aaronovitch graphic novel, Cry Fox.
On the way back to Queens we stopped at Sprinkles and got cupcakes. Then when we got back to Queens, mashfanficchick's mother picked us up, and after collecting my stuff from her apartment, we went to Starbicks for awhile.
Never got to call the FWiB, but we e-mailed during the day.
