You know, I was actually kind of disappointed all those flowers were gone this morning on my way to the radio station? Then again, my dog no longer has natural camoflage anymore, so that's a plus. Good morning, Fandom. This is Kanan Jarrus, and here's the news.
Which all happened in town, once again to my eternal relief. We'll get the businesses out of the way first; everything was rainbows both at Luke's
for my shift and at The Magic Box
for Anders', though Anders got a bonus visit from Dante
to go with them. They talked about whether Anders was going to stop by the picnic in time to see Dante on stage with the band. And then Magnus
stopped by to ask what was up with the rainbows and whether the Magic Box sold food. You missed out on a golden opportunity to eat rainbow pancakes, Magnus. Swing by Luke's sometime. We do have food.
Being a restaurant and all.
Looks like everything else we have this weekend is the Pride Picnic,
which was a little bit like a carnival of rainbows with bonus free birth control. I can appreciate that. There was the requisite mingling,
where, after a quick dip in Kathy's
cleavage - sigh - Dante surfaced with a friendship bracelet. That was not where I was afraid this note would go, and I'm thankful for that.
Being a picnic, there was food,
supplied by Dr. Lecter, naturally. Leto
was impressed by how much Earth food can be turned into rainbows - I know that feeling - though Dr. Lecter lamented the difficulty of finding anything naturally blue around this planet. Don't get me started. Your milk is weird. Liam
found his attention grabbed by the edible glitter, but he stuck around to chat with Dr. Lecter about Liam's past credentials as law enforcement back where he's from.
There were games,
like a ball pit that my dog almost dragged me into, and a kraken slide that Kathy skinned her butt on. Aren't you glad the whole island knows this now, Kathy? And there were booths
, occupied by Fandom folk. Sparkle
was selling flags for charity, and he chatted a little about the meanings of them with Lucille
before she offered to make a donation. Tony
was surprised that Sparkle wasn't selling clothing, but Sparkle pointed out that clothes are a little expensive for someone who is supplying the merchandise out of pocket for the charity booth. Somehow this conversation turned to Tony blowing up a kitchen with pie, and that's a story I'd love to hear someday. Peter
had a booth selling flowers for charity as well, following Sparkle's lead. Tough luck about the island supplying those already, Peter. Bet you really couldn't see that
coming. And finally, Kathy
was at the Dite's booth with free pamphlets and condoms, as well as friendship bracelets - in plastic containers, not in her cleavage - and hair wraps. I was wondering about those. Sparkle
swung by to rainbow flag knight her into some manner of sex nobility, Anders
was charged four kisses for a hair wrap, and Eliot
swung by to have Kathy tell him that nobody had stopped by her booth for sex advice. You have no idea how relieved I, as the guy reading these notes, am to hear that.
Finally, there was the stage
, where Dante
played a Lady Gaga cover on his guitar - none of these words mean anything to me - until Jono showed up so they could start covering Queen, with Dante on vocals. Kathy
stopped by to heckle, which meant that Dante was dragging her up onto the stage to do a rendition of Somebody to Love,
which the squirrels assure me was fabulous.
And that looks like all the notes, just in time for me to grab some caf before running off to class. So, take care, Fandom. Until next week.
