Obama contingent at Pride 2008, and the rest of my weekend

Among other wonderful things I did this weekend, I marched with plumtreeblossom in the Obama-supporters contingent in the Pride parade. I took lots of pictures. And a generous person marching with us took a couple of me and plumtreeblossom:

I’m eventually going to upload a whole bunch of them to Flickr, but for now, here’s a representative sample.

After the Pride march, we hung out with the delightful surrealestate at the festival and wandered around and collected swag and ate festival food. We also sat at the Poly Boston table for a while.

Other wonderful things I did this weekend were go to the annual Beginning of Summer party where we didn’t stay very long (we were tired from Pride) but I got to see lots of wonderful people and I took some pictures of firespinners which you all should pester me to post, have yummy breakfast at the Burren with plumtreeblossom, and help darxus and cathijosephine pack for the move to darxus’ new place.

I would be much more eloquent about all this if I weren’t so tired. But it was all wonderful.

Huge thanks to sunspiral and roozle (and a bunch of volunteers) for a wonderful party, to David W. and the other people who organized the Obama contingent to march (they were very well organized!), to plumtreeblossom for a wonderful weekend and especially for letting me know there was an Obama contingent to march with, and to alan7388 for doing a fabulous job putting together the Poly Boston table at the festival. And to darxus for pizza, and to cathijosephine for deciding it should be pineapple-and-bacon. And to surrealestate just for being surrealestate.
