On Pride

I can't remember the last time I had such a long day. It was worth it, every second, but damn are my feet tired.

Quiche was baked and served without a hitch, to rave reviews from brunch attendees. Lazing about was done, then we went to watch a bit of the parade-- in attendance were, as previously mentioned, [livejournal.com profile] queueball, [livejournal.com profile] driftwoodsun, [livejournal.com profile] priorysion, and various others who shall for the nonce remain nameless. [livejournal.com profile] jilocasin actually agreed to come with me, but he left a little before noon.

We watched the parade for a while, then went back to the apartment for a bit, thence to Volunteer Park to check out the festivities-- [livejournal.com profile] driftwoodsun, [livejournal.com profile] priorysion and I having formed an ad hoc splinter group, the "Tall Brunets Brigade" or some such. Got caught in the crush, was blessed by one of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (and I didn't even have to blow a bishop!), then met up with the rest of the group and wandered back to Broadway for lunch/dinner at some Thai joint that turned out to be pretty damn good. During the meal, I was informed that I am, in point of fact, a sun bear. I don't think I'll ever really understand furries as long as I live.

We went back to the park, watched a little bit of the live entertainment, then [livejournal.com profile] queueball was good enough to give those of us who needed it a ride home.

I have little or nothing in common with most gay men, as is true of most people, but when I do click with them, as has never happened until recently, it's an experience rich beyond the telling of it. The love of comrades doth truly surpass the love of women.

And that's my Pride thought for the day.
