that was fun! or me him lizzie and fifty horses.

last night i actually left the house on a friday night, amazingly. it was cool. i was viva'd at the The Jett Rink show then went to jo & joe's where, i can assure you, despite rumors to the contrary, the queer girls do still flock on a friday night. there was also a reconnaissance mission out to the starlite to take a visual survey of the state of things. there are poles, and there is the bare framework of a new fence, but no plywood has been applied to either structure. i was contacted by an n&o reporter for more information and have advised him to visit the weekend flea market to research the issue.

this morning i went and banged on the door of the local whig hill office and the occupants of said office took me on a guided tour of rural bahama which involved a lot of mud, a swampy field, a nap on a hill, and a surprise encounter with a very large and rowdy group of horses and people. we stopped to watch a couple of balls-out horse races down a gravel road. it was really quite the scene.

"balls-out horse races"--am i supposed to get the mental image that i'm getting? :)

sorry i just missed you last night at the coffeehouse--i'm sad i didn't see you in time to say hi.

heh. yeah, well, i'm not sure all the male horses were geldings (neutered). so maybe that image is accurate :)

i was gonna introduce you to whig hill whom i think you have not met in person... but i didn't realize you were leaving til you were already at your car! i was sitting on the wall.

That's funny - I was at Jo and Joe's last night, for the first time.

(and yes, I noticed the flock of queer girls too)
