Happy DC Pride Weekend!

Everybody have a good DC Pride Festival weekend. Try to act like the gentleman shown below as much as possible, because you can and should be able to, just because:
flamboyance

Even if you consider yourself to be "straight-acting" or "masc" (and actually are in reality), you should still be able to act as flamey as you would like. That is the point of gay pride celebrations. We act this way because we can, and I suck dick because I like it. It just happens to feel right.

Seen on The Banal Chew, originally from Star Trek Inspirational Posters.

Verizon still Sux Donkey Dick. They actually admitted on the phone today that I didn't need to be home yesterday. A repairman showed up, checked the outdoor box, declared that it worked, and left without knocking on my door. The phone still doesn't work and they had the gall to tell me how to test it myself. It doesn't work, send someone to install/fix, please? Do I have to beg? I guess so. Verizon, you will pay some day, I assure you, one way or another. No gay pride for you because you suck.

One word: COMCAST. Three services: cable tv, high speed internets, and digital voice. Give 'em a call and tell Verizon to go suck it.

My friend Jon had a problem with Verizion. I think this is year 6 of his epic battle with the company as he has refused to pay for charges that were incurred during the period of no phone service at the new house. After year 2 or 3 of not having a phone, I forced an AT&T cell phone on him.

I agree. Comcast is the way to go. As for this line, "We act this way because we can, and I suck dick because I like it. It just happens to feel right"--very nicely put.

I hear you - I stayed home from school to wait for the a/c guy who called and canceled about 30 minutes before the 4 hour window expired. Lucky for them I was in a good mood since it was my bday but still... what a crock of shit. I will not be paying full price when they come next week, at a specific time that I dictated. At least I got some concessions from them.

Looks like Comcast is the way to go here in the DC area as far as getting on the internets. That's what we have here at the apartment, and if they say a tech will be here, they are here. One actually came by at 7:30 am on a Saturday morning, but of course none of us heard him knocking. I wasn't sure at first since the connection kept dropping at one point but it's been running smooth over since so it's been good with Comcast.

Next time you talk to VZ, pray for a woman who will come by. The VZ female repair crew are kickass. Or, as Herr Sheehan suggests, Comcast or Starpower. You may want to check first of your block is fiber yet, which might preclube Comcast.

Happy Pride! Are you coming to NYC for Leather Pride or our Pride? They start the weekend of the 17th!

F#ckin'-a, Jimbo. I hear ya on the "have fun at Pride 'cause you can" comment. It's Brooklyn Pride this weekend. Always a little more fun and less stuck-up than Manhattan Pride. Let the fun begin...
