I had the most knitty weekend. Oh, wait, it was Pride, right? That, too. Proud gay knitting, that’s me.
Okay, that kind of is me. Eeep.
I went to the Dyke March (yes, you can call it that, since that’s its official name), and saw all of the people that I wanted to see, and none that I didn’t, so that was really good. I watched the bikes go (O, the bikes….), and then walked to where our party place is at Dolores and 16th, where we drank and danced and watched the March go by. Lazy marcher, me. There were a lot of women who looked REALLY cold, if you get my drift. Me, I was warm. Most of the time. There may have been a breeze once, but it didn’t last long, and although I’ve heard there was photographic proof, I haven’t seen it, so we’re all right. There WAS a woman in a window above us who was so well endowed that every time she hung her torso out the window to the cheers of the marchers, I thought she was going to topple out. I couldn’t watch. That much.
I didn’t ride in the march, but I was on the back of Geena’s bike, dammit! Halfway to my goal….
Sadly, my rockstar girlfriend (she rocks out) was recording and missed the march, but I collected all her friends like any girlfriend should, and we ate massive veggie burritos and then drank beer at the Lex, where we watched all the young hip lesbians flirt. I *so* don’t have the right glasses. But I really liked the person I was sitting with, you know?
That was Pride. I didn’t go to the parade, I wasn’t that proud. I was sleepy and stayed in bed, instead.
Then the Strizz had a little informal thingie at her house, where I knit for like, six hours. That was really nice.
Ask me for names and links. Lazy.
And today, my girls Kira and Rachel came over and we sat at a local cafe (World Ground on MacArthur) and knitted for another few hours.
Much progress was made on my first Lara sleeve (from homespun!) but none to show, because I am, as I have repeatedly stated, lazy.
And now I’m hungry, and laziness is driving me to go out to my car and go to Taco Bell. That’s terrible, isn’t it? Oh, yum. Bean burrito, no onions, sour cream. The perfect end to a fabulous, relaxing weekend. (Even if I wasn’t in Brooklyn. Humph.)
