and real life yesterday

I saw at 8:30 p.m. last night that S. had called at 6:30 p.m.  It's better than recently when my brother called around dinner time and I saw at 2 a.m. that night that he'd called.  I need to remember to check the phone regularly if I go out of the room.  Anyway, I called S. back and we chatted.  He said that the GLBT meeting had gone pretty well.  They had nominations for the 2012-2013 executive board for the organization.  S. said that usually it's just one candidate for each office, but this year it was three or so for each, and he doesn't know how the voting will go.

They showed the film Stonewall.  It's an hour-long meeting, and an hour and twenty minute movie, so S. said they had to fast-forward through parts of it, but that it was all right.  I guess they still hit the highlights.  Having people fast-forward through a movie I hadn't seen before would drive me crazy.  I've seen that one, if it's the film I'm thinking of.

S. is moving forward on trying to get his internships for next year set up.  They may be in Philadelphia.  This year's were in [borough], with at-risk youth.  It sounds like it was challenging.  He's hoping to work for a hospital next year.

It was good to talk to him.

S.M. called me several times to try to be able to get Mapquest or Google Maps working for her.  Had I been there, I could have done it for her very quickly, or shown her how to do it just a bit more slowly than doing it myself.  Trying to talk her through it on the phone was frustrating.  There's a speaker coming from [another part of southeastern Pennsylvania] to garden club.  S.M. had reasonable verbal directions for her.  S.M. e-mailed later to say she'd finally been able to do it.
