Chicago TGIF Happy/Sad/Terrified Hour
posted January 14, 2017 6:09 PM   RSS

I'm going to be in Lakeview/Boystown on Friday, January 20 for some appointments. I'll be done with what I need to do by 2 pm at the absolute latest. Does anyone want to meet up anytime after that (I assume most of you work)? It's inauguration day (*shudders*) so we all may need a beer to cry into. If you don't want to cry, you can help me celebrate some (obviously unrelated) good news.

What do you mean not cry? Clearly you mean group crying.

Just FYI, more than a few members of the Chicago Cabal (TINCC) will be protesting Friday and Saturday, so the timing might be a bit tricky.

Yeah, it's a super weird day to have a bunch of doctor's appointments but I have surgery the following week so it Must Be Done. I just thought I'd throw this out there. I'll be in Chicago (Illinois Masonic) the following week, but I'll be drugged up post-surgery.

(Excuse me for the derail, but are there any plans for the Chicago Cabal (which does not exist) to meet up at Saturday's march? I'm planning on coming alone and it would be nice to have a compatriot or three.)

(Lots of us are going. I'm--personally--a march marshal with Planned Parenthood, so I'll be at the Petrillo bandshell with the PPIL folks, earlier than the stated meeting time. It's a shame the @mefichi broadcast twitter's not working, cause you could coordinate that way.)

Friday is date night for me this week, so I'm out, but I hope everything goes smoothly, AFAB.

It's not clear if we're bad at planning, or just good at not letting the man know our plan for 9/20 and 9/21. I think the thought was just March through the streets until we find other marchers on 9/20, probably around that guys tower on the river. McMikenamera and I have our cell numbers in our profile, and I'm happy to volunteer us to help coordinating meeting on 9/21, but it feels like being flexible is required.

Probably you mean 1/20, god help us if he's not impeached by September.
