Scrums...

.... so the missus wakes up early today and wants to loaf around Knoxville.... brilliant idea... I drove her down Neyland Drive and showed her where the Vols play... we parked over at the Museum of Art and then hoofed it down onto Gay Street... and everything was going just dandy until she asked the bartender at the Downtown Grill where Market Square was.... he was helpful enough, sure... but then he mentioned that Market Square should be really interesting today... it seems that a "Gay Awareness" demonstration was taking place...

... well, boys and girls, we went... and I had a blast...

... I was even sprinkled with "fairy dust" by a fine gentleman on rollerblades... check him out, he was stylin'...

.... I leaned against a building and listened to a few of the speeches, and I think most of the speakers did a pretty good job... not that I really paid that much attention to the speakers though... see, there was a guy with a boombox playing some hip hop music and the women dancing kept distracting me.... sure, I know you guys don't come around here for your daily dose of political rally rundowns, but hey, give me a break... I spent the afternoon surrounded by hundreds of extremely happy gay, lesbian, transgendered, and bi-sexual people.. I'm drained....

... oh, and I saw two young women with the most kickass tee-shirts... I didn't take their photo though... I was a bit afraid that they would beat me up... neither of them could have been older than fifteen and they were both pretty slim, but their shirt kept me from getting too close.... emblazoned across the front?... "I know how to scrum"... those two girls are living life right, people...

... anyway, I'm off to sit on the deck and kick back.... I'm totally a victim of Kingston Pike traffic today and I needs me some liquids....

Bullshit So Far

That sounds like fun!

I use to love to wander around Castro Street in San Francisco on a summer day and people watch. Absolutely fascinated me.

It doesn't rub off, folks...

Just be careful about where them liquids come from, Big Guy...

I'm just sayin'...

And what does a Gay Lady Rugger use to carry her stuff around in, anyway? A Scrum-Bag?

.. I think they both had wallets....

I'll bet you were wearing your cheerleader shoes, and that's why they were so nice to you. They figured you were one of their peeps.

I had a great time last summer at the 25th Anniversary of Gay Pride Week in Toronto. We were there for our daughter to have surgery, but we had some 'non-hospital' time and we really enjoyed the parade and the people were great. It was a hoot!!
