Pretty eventful day. I ended up going to the multi fandom Boston Tea Party (thanks a ton for coming here, Cara :)). But I was late and hangry as hell, because I’d skipped lunch after storming out the apartment after a big fight with my Mom. Then I spent a while wandering around in the rain, lost as always and getting no help from the many Boston tourists, who were more confused than me.
I finally made it to the venue, and I gotta say, Suffolk University’s main building is hella fancy! I was so out of it that although people were hella nice, introducing themselves and such, I didn’t even tell them my name, just went, “Oh, um, nice to meet you.” Yep. So good at being socially awkward and abrupt. I got to sample two of Cara’s Adagio tea blends, the Sherlock and Mycroft ones, and I liked the latter so much I brought some of it home- it’s a rooibos vanilla chai chocolate chip amalgam and it’s so nomz!
I had a pretty good time creeping on the cosplayers, whose fandoms ranged from Merlin to Sherlock to Supernatural. I was disappointed that there weren’t any from Harry Potter, but perhaps they’d left before I got there.
I left in a hurry because I was starving, seeking refuge in the Boston Public Library’s Maproom Cafe (of course). On the subway ride back home, an elderly man showed me his super old Cal ID and went “Go Bears!” It really made me feel better :) He then told me how much he liked my Berkeley sweatshirt and wanted one like it.
Then I had a really good time retail therapy-ing and cafe exploring. The usual. Despite sucky, rainy weather, today turned out unexpectedly good.
Gonna upload some pics from the Boston Tea Party soon. I realized most of them are hella crappy though, because I was so excited and distracted. I’ve never been to any sort of fandom convention before!
