Just a little somethin' to break the monotony...

A bitch has spent the morning working on my Pride Fest 2007 two day outdoor festival survival list of necessary things.

It’s going to be hot, chil’ren.

And there’s this newish evil rumor about rain.


Hold it…hold on…hold!

Time for a mid day groov-a-licious dance break…courtesy of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the artist formerly known as The Fresh Prince.

It's late in the day and I ain't been on the court yet
Hustle to the mall to get me a short set
Yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair
Cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there
The temperature's about 88
Hop in the water plug just for old times sake
Break to ya crib change your clothes once more
Cause you're invited to a barbeque that's starting at 4

Sitting with your friends cause y'all reminisce
About the days growing up and the first person you kiss
And as I think back makes me wonder how
The smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia
All the kids playing out front
Little boys messin round with the girls playing double-dutch
While the DJ's spinning a tune as the old folks dance at your family reunion

Then six o'clock rolls around
You just finished wiping your car down
It's time to cruise so you head to the summertime hangout
It looks like a car show
Everybody come lookin real fine
Fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon
Every moment frontin and maxin
Chillin in the car they spent all day waxin
Leanin to the side but you can't speed through
Two miles an hour so everybody sees you
There's an air of love and of happiness
And this is the Fresh Prince's new definition of summer madness

All together now…

Time to sit back and unwind

Shakes groove thing a wee bit longer then adds 'umbrella' to festival preparedness list...

Sunscreen, Little Sister, Sunscreen. Fear not the rain... up here in Chicago we're about to embark on the 38th annual Pride March, and it has not rained once - who're the chosen people again?

I usually march with the gay vets to help carry the huge (we're talking gi-normous) U.S. Flag down the street. About 6 years back it was raining all morning of the Parade, and it's impossible to carry that flag in the rain (it's a couple hundred pounds bone dry). We had brought it out under a tarp just in case, and were getting ready to haul it back into one of the guy's trucks when - I swear this is true - 15 minutes before the Parade was scheduled to begin the rain stopped, the heavens opened, and Here Came The Sun. God loves thate rainbow.

Perhaps I'll have an AngryBlackBitch sighting at STL Pride. I'll try not to squeal too loudly :-)

Will the sorta-beagles be in the pet parade?

Annual Pride warning - do not walk up to random Sistahs with afros screaming about AngryBlackBitches.


Not wise.

I shall be the one wearing the signature ABB watch (wink).

And no, the pampered sorta-beagles will not be on site. Too much drama!

No rain, no rain, no rain!!
