Seattle Pride

If I was a decade younger, I would have just stayed up this morning, and gone straight to Pride. But instead, I slept `till 1pm, and made it to the park at 3, where I met up with omahas, elfs, Kouryou-chan & Yamaarashi-chan.

Despite missing the parade, and even with the streams of people leaving as I was walking in, it was still a full crowd of interestingly dressed and appearing people.

It was free of MoveOn morons with bullhorns (the people who pissed me off to no-end at Pride a couple of years ago), and I was willing to forgive the Bubble Man his anti-new-housing and his anti-computer-game rants because he was so good at entertaining a crowd of enthusiastically blissed kids with his ersatz bubble makers.

Two hours was just about the right amount of time to spend there.


I met up later with tygereclipse, and she introduced me to a fun greasy spoon diner on Aurora that is known for good food and take-no-shit staff.
