Happy Easter! Today’s links roundup will be postponed until tomorrow.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate, happy end-of-Passover to my fellow Jews, and happy spring to everyone in the Northern hemisphere!

I’ve been having a wonderful weekend of casual interfaith hanging-outage. Last night, I had a few friends over for a “seder” that involved mostly eating chicken soup and matzoh balls (which my friend Sam made using her mom’s recipe!), ordering Chinese, and watching The Prince of Egypt. And now I’m about to head to my local park for an Easter egg hunt organized by another friend, to be following by general frolicking and dinner.

I haven’t had time to put together this week’s links post, so I’ll put it up tomorrow (which is a holiday here in Massachusetts anyway).

Reminder: Fab Fatty Frolic at the Beach this Saturday!

Fat beach love!

It’s pretty awesome how much fat beach-going is taking place this summer here in Boston.

Unfortunately, I didn’t end up making it to Marfmellow and Lotsalipstick’s Body Posi Beach Day a few weeks ago (and it looks like they had so much fun! I’m sad I missed it), and I won’t be able to make it to The Big Thrifty’s Not So Little Mermaids beach event next weekend either, as I will be attending a friend’s wedding. But this weekend will be my Fab Fatty Frolic at Revere Beach!

The details:

-Saturday, August 3rd, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
-Revere Beach, near the bathrooms (near the Revere Beach T stop)
-I will have a pink Hello Kitty blanket
-All fatties and friends welcome!

I hope to see you there! And if you’re free the week after, check out Not So Little Mermaids as well.

Two exciting events: Fab Fatty Frolic and Three Big Fat Voices

Huzzah for fat hooping!

So, I went ahead and planned that Fab Fatties Frolic that I was thinking about.

It will be on June 2nd (rain date: June 23rd) at the Cambridge Common park.

I’ve created a Facebook event, which has a few more details:

Let’s enjoy our fabulous fat community out in the sun. 🙂

Fats and allies of all shapes/sizes/ages/backgrounds/genders/abilities/etc are welcome!

You can find me by my hot pink Hello Kitty blanket. I will also bring various frolicking implements such as a hula hoop, frisbee, and bubbles, as well as FA books to read (and possibly a few to swap). Feel free to bring any frolicking implements, books, snacks, whatever you want.

The Cambridge Common is near Harvard Square on the Red Line.

In even more Boston-area fatty excitingness, I just read about another awesome event that’s coming up: Three Big Fat Voices with Hanne Blank, Lesley Kinzel, and Susan Stinson.

From the event description:

Behold! Three fat superheroines in glorious eyeglasses swoop into Cambridge for one night to read from their own works. Let the skyline be illuminated by the brilliance of their cultural critique and honest words. Listen to their powerful fiction, memoir, and poetry pieces boom out. And be swept away on a cresting wave of fat activism, fat acceptance, and fat community.

Damn, I’m glad I live in Boston. This sounds amazing.

I’ll definitely be there. If you’re in the area, check it out!
