1:59 am - ticky tacky
chatting me up for sex is one thing, but trying to sly in, asking me if i have room in my tent at lazybear... i don't think so!

granted, my tent would hold two queen size beds and still have room left over, but i've got someone special coming with me to lazybear and if the tents a rocking, go the fuck away :P

Is it Friday yet?

What a long ass week! We now know that Shannon ruptured a disk in her lower back. Its been a very long 2+ weeks of her being in serious and constant pain. The pain meds aren't doing shit for her. Most of the time she needs help sitting up from bed, standing up, walking...
We got her an appointment for next Monday with a neurosurgeon. Hopefully they'll be able to do something rather simple like steroid injections and physical therapy, but if worse comes to worse, surgery.

I have to say I'm pretty worn out! I know she got to deal with my cancer and wonky heart issues, but now I remember why I'm still on disability. This is kicking my ass trying to look after her as best I can, and cook and get her to work meetings and such. I mean of course I'll do it, cause that's what you do, but I feel like I've been hit by a Muni bus. Though in this city, don't the bus drivers actually aim for people?

I need a massage... and a drink!

1:53 pm - the house of sick
poor shan, this pinched nerve this is NOT getting any better!
good thing her bf was here, cause she cannot today even sit up in bed, so she had to pee in a bucket this morning. since i can't hear her calling from her bedroom, i would never of heard her asking for help.

i guess when i left to go to the dentist yesterday, she had to go pee and crawled down the hall but could never get up to sit on the toilet! her bf came over while i was out and found her on the floor!

we've been waiting since tuesday to get an MRI scheduled and we're still waiting!
she doesnt want to go to the ER cause we know she'll just be stuck laying in some bed until monday when a specialist would see her. that and i would have to call for an ambulance to get her down the stairs anyway.

the percocet and muscle relaxer the doc gave her aren't doing much of anything. so in a few more hours, once its been about 6 hours since her last pain pill, i'm going to dig into my stash and put her on fentynal patches. that should really knock her on her ass! but if that is what it takes to get her through the weekend, then so be it.

Hmmm... I think I found one of my half sisters (not of the sparkley drag nun variety) via my dad's Facebook. Since I've never met her and she has a different last name, (but one I know "should" make her a relative), I'm not 100% certain. But Shan says we look a bit alike, in the eyes and nose.
Wadda ya think, do we look alike?

2:20 pm - Of all things...
I have a tit infection???
Nasty as it may be, last night some puss came out of the left nipple ring. Yes, yes I know, TMI! But really, how odd is this? I've had these rings for several years and wear 4g rings. So its not like they are new or have never been worked over.

I hadn't paid much attention to it today, it wasn't hurting and nothing oozing, but then I noticed the left side fat guy tit had become a full on man boob!!!
So I just popped some antibiotics and guess I'll keep on them for a week or so... I am not amused in the least :(

1:25 am - Grrrr!
Most annoying comment in an online profile today... "Part of the popularity of body piercings and tattoos is the entry level pricing: it's cheap"

Hello ass wipe, in this city, a good tat artist will run you $150 an hour! I take my body mods VERY seriously, and given the hour and lack of sleep from last night, this makes me cranky!

5:03 pm - No Pink Saturday?

San Francisco Police Department officials this morning (Thursday, May 28) delayed for a second time granting a street closure permit for the annual Pink Saturday party in the Castro during Pride weekend, throwing plans for this year's event in doubt.

The move infuriated the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who are threatening to end their sponsorship of the outdoor celebration. It attracts anywhere from 75,000 to 100,000 revelers to the city's gayborhood and raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for local LGBT groups.

"At this point we have been jacked around week after week. They are making it impossible to move ahead," said Sister Barbi Mitzvah, a spokesnun for the charitable organization. "The Sisters are at their wits' end with the city. We need our permit approved."

With only 30 days left to organize more than 350 volunteers, hire more than 250 private security guards, and line up corporate sponsors, time is running out to properly plan the party, said Mitzvah.

"We can't wait another two weeks, otherwise we will pull out and SFPD can do what it wants to do," he said. "People are going to go to Pink Saturday whether we are there or not."

If their permit is not in hand by next week, the drag nun group will likely walk away from overseeing the party, set to take place June 27.

"I keep hearing a few more weeks. I have no faith in the SPFD whatsoever," said Mitzvah, in terms of getting final approval from the department. "We are required to have our permits 30 days in advance and we are not going to make it."

The police have dragged out the permit approval process for weeks, blocking for a second time signoff of the permits from the city's Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation due to concerns about adding beer booths at the street event this year. They also claim the department does not have the funds to cover the estimated $200,000 it will cost to police the party.

Sergeant Mark Solomon, with the department's field operations bureau, requested ISCOTT defer voting on the Sisters' permit for at least a week so that police officials could review the Sisters' security plans and determine how to pay for staffing the party. He said due to the beer booths, the police would need to increase the amount of officers assigned to patrol Pink Saturday.

"There is no money in our coffers," Solomon said during the morning hearing Thursday, May 28. "We need to figure out where to come up with that."

For much of the party's 21-year history, city officials have tolerated drinking in the streets of the Castro that night. In return, bar owners and liquor stores are asked to serve alcohol in paper cuts and not to sell any cans or bottles.

As the event has grown in size, and attracted a younger crowd, underage and excess drinking has become more of a concern. To address that this year, and to raise more money to help defray their production costs, the Sisters have proposed setting up several beer booths and bars throughout the footprint of the street closure. They also want to bring in food vendors and more entertainment so there is more to do than drink.

"We want this to be more than just a gay man's drinking event," said Mitzvah.

They intend to aggressively card participants at the entrance gates, and only people over the age of 21 given wristbands by security will be served alcohol. Bars would still be allowed to serve drinks to go, but only if in biodegradable cups, so in effect, the event would be one large beer booth.

"There has always been drinking in the streets. The difference is we feel we can legitimize this and control the drinking in the streets," said Mitzvah. "We can also make money off of this and help with SFPD's costs."

Steve Adams, president of the Castro merchant group, said business owners and neighborhood groups all support the Sisters' proposed changes to the event and called on ISCOTT to grant the permits. Otherwise, should the Sisters pull out, Adams fears the city would try to shut down Pink Saturday as it did two years ago with the Castro's Halloween street party due to violence and problems with crowd control.

"We do not want this to turn into another Halloween. Having the Sisters doing this will prevent another Halloween-type situation," said Adams at the hearing.

The ISCOTT members agreed to allow the police more time to resolve their issues with the party, and once they do, plan to meet in emergency session to grant the necessary permits to close the streets.

But that may still be too late. The Sisters plan to discuss over the next several days what they their involvement will be this year.

"No matter what happens the Sisters will be in the Castro celebrating Pink Saturday. It just may not be in the shape or design people are used to," said Mitzvah.

By royal command of my mother's guilt trip, we're off to Fresno on Saturday for my cousin's wedding.
100 degree weather, a Catholic ceremony (yes, full Mass), endless slews of relatives and people I don't know. Add in Shan has hurt her back and is hobbling around more than I do... yop, it will be a lovely time indeed.
Oh, did I mention the same sex marriage rally being held the same day/hour, just a block away from the church? My cousin has some lousy timing! lol

11:31 am - Pink Saturday a go, or no???

Pink Saturday, one of the city's premier Pride events, could be drastically changed this year in order to help cover the costs of producing the party and raising more money for LGBT charities.

Without a revamp to the Castro Street party, the organizers of the event have threatened to end their involvement in its planning, which for more than two decades has drawn hundreds of thousands of revelers to the Castro District the night prior to the Pride Parade the last Sunday of June. For 15 years the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have hosted the event, collecting donations at the gates that are then donated to LGBT groups.

Last year's party, however, cost $59,000 with $90,000 raised at the gates and another $7,000 donated by merchants to pay for portable toilets. After handing out their charitable grants, the Sisters were left with $267. Due to the diminishing returns on their investment, the group of drag nuns came close to ending their involvement with the event.

Meeting since last July to discuss how to rework Pink Saturday so that it is financially doable, the Sisters landed on the idea of transforming it into more of a nighttime version of the Castro Street Fair, duplicating that daytime event's use of food vendors and beer booths to raise money. In addition, the Sisters have proposed setting up stages and DJ booths throughout an expanded footprint for the Pink party to provide entertainment for the crowd.

For the plan to go forward, however, city officials must first approve it, including a cash-strapped police department that has to cover the overtime costs of staffing Pink Saturday. The Sisters had planned to present their proposal this morning (Thursday, May 14) before ISCOTT, the city's Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation that signs off on temporary street closures for special events.

But due to ongoing deliberations between the police and the Sisters over the proposed changes this year, the ISCOTT hearing is being postponed for two weeks. Should the city oppose the planned changes, the Sisters voted at a meeting Tuesday night to end their oversight of Pink Saturday.

"Pink Saturday is in limbo," said Sister Barbi Mitzvah, a spokesnun for the group who is spearheading planning this year's event. "The only way the Sisters will do it is if we can expand the footprint and sell alcohol, otherwise the Sisters will officially pull out of doing Pink Saturday."

Negotiations over the plan turned contentious this week after Mission Station Captain Steve Tacchini proposed reigning in drinking at the street party to designated beer gardens. Doing so would reduce how many officers would be required to work Pink Saturday, and therefore, cost the police department less in overtime.

But the Sisters ruled out such an idea, saying beer gardens would hurt revenues and defeat the purpose of bringing in alcohol vendors. They plan to hire up to 150 private security officers to man the event, lessening the burden on the police.

Instead of using volunteers, they plan to hire professional bartenders. And only people with a valid ID showing proof of age will be given a wristband allowing them to purchase drinks from the booths. There will also be a zero-tolerance policy at the gates, where security guards will confiscate any bottles, cans, and weapons.

Castro bar owners also questioned whether beer gardens would mean they could no longer serve drinks in cups that patrons could then take with them out on the streets. Technically, it is against state law for bars to serve drinks to go. But the rule has always been overlooked when it comes to Pink Saturday, one of the biggest nights of the year for bars in the Castro.

An emergency meeting with bar owners, the Sisters, police, and Supervisor Bevan Dufty was held Wednesday morning to discuss the changes planned for the event and to seek consensus among the stakeholders in order to move forward.

Tacchini said at the meeting that he was "not demanding but merely proposing beer gardens because it lessens the need of having our staff there." He said he "put it on the table purely for economical reasons."

Bar owners expressed their support for the Sisters having beer booths with the caveat that they could still sell drinks to go.

"We should be able to do what we have always done and help the Sisters do beer booths. The whole point to Pink Saturday is that everyone can walk around and drink on the streets like at the Folsom Street Fair," said Larry Metzger, an owner of the Mix bar who hosted the meeting.

Doug Murphy, one of the owners of Moby Dick and 440 Castro, echoed those same sentiments. "Beer booths, I don't have an issue with that as long as the people can come to the bars and leave," he said.

Tim Eicher, a part owner of QBar on Castro Street, pledged in an interview that his business fully supports the Sisters' plans to revamp the party. He even said he would buy a beer himself from their booth.

"Do you know how many people are down there in the Castro that night? There are enough people to drink at every single bar and the Sisters' beer booth. I think we will all be okay," he said. "If that is what they need to get enough money for their event, I will help them set up. We love their party."

Having asked the bars to close early Halloween night 2007, Dufty said he wanted to ask for the owners' input before backing the Sisters' plan to sell beer on the streets. "This is a major event for them. Knowing that this has been a difficult year for any business, I didn't want to exclude them from the decision-making process," said Dufty in an interview.

Following the meeting, Dufty insisted that, "We will make this all work and have a great Pride."

And the Sisters expressed more confidence that by having the support of bar owners they would receive the necessary sign off from city officials.

"We are feeling very confident," said Mitzvah.
