Saturday Night Protest Party!

This is how I am feeling right now.

Dance like no one's watching.

Sing like no one's listening.

"Let's All Chant" - STONEWALL 50!  THE PEOPLE UNITED SHALL NEVER BE DEFEATED!

  1. It's still Friday night for me, but good morning. I get to put in overtime this weekend, but I hope to remember to post sometime tomorrow.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I doubt if many experiencing current heatwaves will have the energy to get up and shake a leg today, W.Q., including yourself, as I see. Our own is expected to peak today in low 30s, nothing as concerning as the oven-like mid-40s they've been getting in France.

    Have a cool (in all senses) w/e. Salutations to all from my be-shorted self and several knocked out (heat-wise) pussy cats.

    1. france seems to be bearing the burden of the heatwave.

      today is a lovely cool day; I currently have the windows open and the air conditional off. we had thunderstorms rattle through yesterday afternoon to cool things down considerably.

      cats are currently napping; RTG and I just finished breakfast (corn cakes with real butter & real maple syrup). on the agenda is laundry and knitting and a nap.

      hope you and pussies get some relief from the heat soon.

    2. It was only for Saturday when temps hit the heights for us. Since then we're back in the low 20s - and for now can sleep better nights.

      Not sure what 'corn cakes' are though we almost certainly have equivalents, maybe the same with different name. And y'know what? Don't think I've EVER had maple syrup. P'raps that too is called something else here.

      Our affections to all.

    3. "corn cakes" are pancakes made with corn muffin mix and a dash of vanilla extract. I found a helpful article here: https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-drink/pancakes-how-to-make-american-british-recipes-from-scratch-easy-best-toppings-a7912786.html

      maple syrup comes from the maple tree sap; takes 35 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup. canada makes THE BEST syrup, with our state of vermont close behind. to read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maple_syrup

    4. Oh, you like to live life on the edge, don't you? NO we were NOT together in 1978. We met in 1981; I was 2.

    Our Pride Fest isn't until September, because of the wicked heat and stupidity, er, humidity,but it is a Pride-filled weekend elsewhere.

    Happy Pride AM!

    1. I went for a mani/pedi at a local nail salon yesterday; the owner was playing 80s-90s dance tunes over the intercom. LOVED IT!

    1. not this year, dear. maddie and I are making plans to attend next year's doylestown pride festival; a bit smaller and more walkable for me. maddie put pix up on one of her last blog posts of the doylestown celebrations.

      I have seen pix of the canal parade; peter (who no longer blogs) would post pix of pink noord activities. have a great time!

    1. it was hot in philly too on saturday. we had some thunderstorms go thru; I currently have the windows open to let in the cool breeze and the air conditioner is off.

      "Guido's got his BBQ out tonight!" is that a double entendre for something else, like guido's big hose? I wish I were there too to sample guido's cooking. love you boyz!

  15. It's actually pretty cool here at the moment. Our pride parade isn't until August and we have a pride week leading up to the parade and festival after. It's a fun week.
    Wow, many years since I heard that tune, still a good dance tune today. I remember being a kid singing that song with friends but we didn't understand the full meaning lol. "My body, your body, but nobody wants my body" :(
    Hahaha!

  17. I missed the party! My house has been in a total upheaval for the past few days so I was off grid once again.
    1978, huh? I had two kids under the age of two that year, which explains why I never heard of this song. One goes a little nutsy cuckoo when one's kids are only 14 months apart. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
