Gay Pride. So. much. fun. Seriously. The service at Arlington Street Church was AMAZING, too. The march was so great. There was a very pained-looking man that came up and talked to me before it and then waved to me during it. He was nifty, even though he was quite the smoker. Anyway, I got people chanting and stuff.
It was raining. I loved that. I got think I helped other people stay happy. I was apparently "the walking rainbow" which was amazingly spiffy. I smiled thewholetime. All of it. My cheeks hurt so bad it was great. I complimented a lot of people for their outfits. So great.
A woman came and joined us near the end and she talked about how ridiculous discrimination is so passionately. I loved that. It's such an embracing environment; I felt so supported. I didn't feel alone at all, at any point. I love that the most. Someone at the beginning of the parade walked by with his girlfriend "boo"ing us, but it was so easy to handle when I knew there were so many people around me that were like me or weren't but had my back anyway. I don't think there's a better feeling for me.
Linda and Mark's surprise 25th birthday party was okay. I went and found a corner to read in when I was feeling freaked out. A woman came up and talked to me--kind of condescending about the Aggie thing, but I handled it. She definitely knew I was intelligent by the time we were done talking. Went home and had a great conversation with Treebum.
Bike ride after that. EXCELLENT. Stopped at a stream and sang out. Man walked by at the end and I didn't notice until I'd finished. Looked at me strangely. Haha oooops. "You've Got a Friend", Carole King. I got up the hill I couldn't even get up when I was fit. <3. Proud. I love the sound of birds in the woods when there's only the sound of running water and wind in the leaves to accompany it. Beauty.
Amy Speace's show was Fantastic. Yes, with the uppercase "F". Hung out with Arah, Alex/Twinny, and Anti-Social Steve. Got Arah to dance with me. Laughed a lot. Good toffe stuff--don't remember what it wascalled. Arah made me sad by not coming back into the second half so she could play chess with Anti-Social Steve. (Who DOES that, at a LIVE SHOW?) I dragged her back to dance with me for the last song and encore. Then I hung around with her and Twinny being silly, loud, witty, and hyper. Twas fun.
Today I went to church and watched Mum cry for all the parental speeches. It was the Graduates Bridging Ceremony. Haha. It was great. Then I hung out with Pashi, Arah, Gar, Arnarb, and John (who needs a nickname). I read some excerpts from "The Goose is Out". I read the back, too. Pashi wants to read it. Arag "got it". Arnarb and John couldn't get it 'cause they kept trying to grasp it and get their minds around it. That doesn't work well with Zen, since that's not the point. So it was sort of funny.
They said I'd make a good Zen master. That I've just got that right personality--I don't take myself too seriously and enjoy my fun and games, and I'm just that erratic and spontaneous. Haha. That made me laugh and dance. I did a lot of dancing this weekend. And singing. And loving.
I gave a lot of hugs today. Fwee!! Three for Dan. Haha. He scared me at one point when I was hiding from the sun and couldn't see. He hugged me goodbye and I started yelling 'cause I was surprised and stuff. It was fun.
Came home, internet, food. We might be getting rid of Bella. Not really "getting rid" of her, but giving her away to someone who could really use a dog that wants that much attention. It'd be to a woman who lost her husband and needs someone or something to love. First I was angry, but only 'cause Mum made it out that we abuse Bella or something. Not true. Or that we don't care for Muggzzey anymore. Again, not true. And she didn't consider how Mugz would feel without Bel. Dogs get depressed often when their companion goes away. She asked what we should do--I suggested a trial period where this woman takes Bella, she sees how they get along, and we see how well Mugz does without Bel. Lex and Da agreed with me, and then Mum. Said it was a good idea. Fwee!
That would mean Mugz could sleep with me again and go back to being my best pal. And he'd get to go places with Mum. I'd be able to take him on walks easily, and hang out with him without Bella scratching my arms off. She always needs so much attention and she always will--that's just what happens when someone is raised neglected and gets a taste of attention. Especially a pug.
Went to the video store with Da to get "Harold and Maud". It was gone. Picked up American Pie, 'cause people from band used to talk about it and I wanted to see it. Washed the dogs. Took them out and played with them. Brushed their teeth. Hung out with them. Now I'm up here ready to watch the movie but I can't find the XBox remote for the DVD part. Going to ask Mum if she knows where it is.
I hope to clean my room so it's ready for Mugz if this works out. I hope it does--the woman could really use Bel and I'd still be able to see her. Though I'll have to see how Mugz is able to cope without Bel. I think he'll do okay--he's never really liked her all that much. All she does is bug him. He never follows her around or tries to snuggle up with her--it's always her doing that. He just seems annoyed with her most of the time.
'Kay. Off I go. Hopefully shorter entries for a while.
