My dork status is official now

Well, we marched around town for a couple of hours with Kerry/Edwards signs tonight. There are just some activities that demonstrate that one is hardcore now. Like the difference between losing your virginity and waking up in the morning recalling activities that cause you to wonder if your partner has an ounce of respect for you now. Or the difference between just going to a rock show and taking a stage drive. I used to mostly just vote and bitch, but tonight I grabbed my sign and camera and hit the street.

I took a bunch of pictures, but Hello is being slow. I'll put them up as I can. No pics of me, for any of the idly curious, because I was wielding the camera.

The bad news is the rain reduced our numbers signficantly. The brave few left walked from Waterloo Park to the Capitol building to the corner of 6th and Congress and then down 6th to Casino el Camino for some beers and music. Well, we are Austinites. As we walked, we gathered up a few more supporters who walked with us, but the most encouraging thing was the people on the street we passed.

Most of the people we passed on the street threw us a thumbs up or the victory sign. A good half of the cars had people leaning out and yelling support, giving us the thumbs up and honking encouragement. Our group was really emboldened. On the corner of 6th and Congress, Jan Patterson, the Democratic candidate and incumbent for the 3rd Court of Appeals caught up with us and gave us a pep talk. Taxi cabs and even bus drivers honked in approval. The bus passengers waved wildly. It was encouraging to see how most of the people out there were Kerry supporters, but just exciting to see the enthusiasm for Kerry.

Oh, there were a couple of Bush supporters, all aggressive in their language. Fuck you type of stuff. But it was hollow and pathetic compared to the honking and waving and people in the street shouting "Yea Kerry!" at us as we walked by. It's definitely heartening to see the capital of Texas turn on Bush like this.

Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how cam across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a enzyte galleries related site focusing on enzyte galleries and mens health related topics.

Hi,
I found reading your blog interesting and well done, I do like what you have done with your site but it is not really the information I was after about online casino slot . Keep up the good work and hopefully I will visit again sometime and also find the information on online casino slot that I was looking for in my travels.
Regards,
