did not make it to the parade

I'd stayed up late watching videos, woke up late, and contemplated just going to the Pride fest, since I'd missed the Pride march.  Then I poked my head outside, where it was ninety-one degrees and humid, and considered whether I wanted to go on the train for an hour, walk to Center City, then quite a distance to Penn's Landing, spend a couple of hours there, walk back to Market East, go on the train for an hour (and Sunday's trains only run once an hour), and drive back home.  There's this mythical shuttle bus that's supposed to take people from the gayborhood to Penn's Landing, but I've never actually seen one.  I considered taking the train in and then taking a taxi to Penn's Landing, since I'd learned a little about taxis in New York City, but I realized I'd never be able to get a taxi back from Penn's Landing.  The more I thought about it, and how hot it was, the less ambitious I got.  I feel kind of bad for not making it there, but I'll probably take some of the kids from [local university] to OutFest.  It should be cooler around here by October 11th or so.  I'll call in some book orders to Giovanni's Room, and get to Philadelphia another weekend.

I got out of the house a little bit locally.  Mom and I went to K-Mart, where I got a couple of tops and a few pairs of shorts.  My T-shirts from last year have little holes just above the waistline, which I strongly suspect are from my belt buckle.  I can't find more than half of the pairs of shorts I had last year.  I'm getting plain-colored T-shirts, because I don't much like most of the designs that Wal-Mart or K-Mart or even some department store T-shirts have.  Time to order some T-shirts from P.L. Nunn, or maybe more Eskimo Kiss ones.  I wore my "Soapfairy" T-shirt today.
