2.Saw part of the World Trade Center, with a quote from George Bush, who apparently spoke fluent French in 2001.
3.Willingly let someone commandeer my camera to take photos of whatever he wanted. Apparently he wanted to take photos of lots of white boys.
4.Watched what seemed to be a pretty brazen hookup at the Sierra Club booth, between plaid boy one and plaid boy two. Maybe they'll both pretend to be lumberjacks.
5. Watched a "I'm gone be 76 year old" woman in a gold sequined dress belt out a song about "flipping it over" and hittin' it good" (I paraphrase)
She was hot.
9.Watched this hippy (above) and this hippy (below) watch a 76 year old woman sing about flipping it over and turning it out.
10.Decided Sarge here probably needed to be flipped over and turned out by a 76 year old black woman.
11.Watched Michael's friend manage to go from taking a distant photo of one (presumably) straight guy (below), to, getting him to take a picture with me (redacted), to, three or so hours later, upon reencountering him on the street, having a long, lingering conversation with him and getting a phone number (?).
12.Stepped back in awe of such skills.
13.Watched total strangers oblige and take a picture with a pervert (me)...for a bigger pervert(?) (him).
14.Watched Michael's friend's Grindr contact's live-streaming masturbation video minutes after seeing him on the street.
16.Was ambushed by wannabe performers, Guy in Pink Hat With Girls. The one in the white glasses was clearly the star. She gave an impromptu, very unasked for, miniature washboard performance on the curb. Even the washboard sounded like she'd been smoking.
17.Photographed model-in-his-own-head watching Capoeira. Every move he made was as if he were posing for a Calvin Klein ad, c. 1999.
18.Envied these tattoos that looked like nylon seams, but were not.
19.Feared gaining weight by simply coming into contact with huge bread bowls filled with crawfish and cream concoction.
20.Successfully avoided eating fried bacon on a toothpick, with shrimp somewhere inside.
21.Envied (?) a Burt Reynolds t-shirt on straight tourist from New Orleans, like me, only not.
22.Envied a K and B t-shirt on a gay tourist from New Orleans....like me, only better.
23.Fell victim to eating a mediocre meat pie.
24.Fell victim to Michael's evil plan: "So, how old do you think he is?" (he asks me, in regard to his friend). "Ummm...39? I said, tentatively rounding down.
The answer was 32 and there is no way out of that hole ever. Never.
25.Made clover chains while sitting in the grass, the idea of which seemed to spread. Gave mine to this adorable little girl.
Michael gave his little one to a full grown woman, who later asked to have his baby. Coincidence? I think not.
26. Watched as a "bear" stripper, stripped (counterintuitively)
starting out in skimpier underwear than he ended up.
27. Watched someone (Michael) eat chicken salad (on avocado) in a Mexican restaurant.
28.Failed miserably in resisting the lure of duck-fat fried fries with aioli.
30.Went to a gay bar which had switched up its regular gayzak to cajun music.
31.Learned by way of the very charming Dave the trick to two stepping: "Imagine your right foot is nailed to a plank on the floor" (I paraphrase)
33.Saw this French Canadian band live. 34. Moshed a bit...in French.
35. Vacated mosh pit when huge kilt wearing man bounded in, reaking of a "hummus"-like BO (as Michael maintains).
