A few random notes from me


Pre-registered for Pennsic today. Only 42 days left to go. Gah!

I ordered my contacts yesterday. They can't get here fast enough. Hate these glasses.

Been playing a lot of Starcraft lately after hearing they're going to be releasing a II. I also realized I bought Brood Wars ages ago but never played it, so after I breeze through the original (been using cheats) I'll try to play it through.

Q got me the latest 2 issues of "Twisted ToyFare Theater" yesterday as an anniversary gift. No doubt I will love them. :D (I got him roses on Wednesday, which are blooming nicely.) We went out Tuesday night to Outback to celebrate and used up a whole stack of gift cards.

Nice boring weekend coming up, to cap off a nice boring week. Plus, double XP weekend on CoH - woo hoo!

Today is the official start of Gay Pride here in San Francisco. There will be a flag raising at city hall. I know a lot of people really don't get into Pride and all that...cause it seems to be the same year after year. But I still love it each year.

Quincy's the same way, but he hasn't been doing it as long as I have (and he still likes going out dancing, and I'm waaaaaaaaaaaay past that now).

I did manage to breathe some new life into Pride for myself, personally - I ran booths at the San Diego festival for Gaylaxicon when I ran it in 2004, for San Diego Queer Sci-Fi which started after Gaylaxicon, and the Long Yang Club which I helped run. The first year I was in SD I organized a float for LYC, but discovered that having a booth was much more relaxing and got a much bigger return - we had over 200 people sign up for our mailing list our first year, and that was a LOT (I think the list is about 700 now, although turnout at events wasn't nearly so exciting).

But since I moved here I'm back to attending Pride. I still prefer the festival to the parade, but the parade is fun, too, if it's not too long and boring. :)

the parade here in sf does tend to get a bit long though, once it was 4 hrs. the festival is just too crowded now. it's great and all, but there are so many people that go, it's hard to walk around.

That was my biggest problem with New York - too big, too crowded. I'll take small and homey any day. :)

I think SF was my favorite Pride: I really enjoyed the parade down Market St. In southern CA all of the parades are somehow less grand than they are in a city like SF.

I go through phases -- some years I look forward to pride and some years I'm ambivalent. This year, for some reason, I'm looking forward to Christmas. :)

I much prefer San Diego Pride over any others I've been to, including New York and Philly. I went to Long Beach one year - what a zoo! I've never been to LA's or SF's.

I'm sure this'll sound like heresy to you, but I didn't really notice that much of a difference between Long Beach and San Diego's prides...

Meh, I see your point. I guess part of it is because San Diego's is in the park and at least some of it is under trees, whereas Long Beach's was this weird long trek to a fenced-in, sun-soaked field. Also, I think San Diego's is a tad smaller, and personally I felt like I had more room to move around in. But yeah, they are similar, I see that.

I so love Christmas. I go all out with decorating, even if I do have a small studio.

We have a townhouse, but my half is way cooler than the other half:



:D
