okay so. John and I took BART (Bay Area Rapid Transport; it's like the train/subway, basically) over to San Francisco, stopping first to pick up his crazy gay great-uncle, whom I now call Auntie Carl. Auntie Carl is quite possibly the coolest (living) old guy i know: he's been HIV-positive for twenty years, he grows marijuana with his partner, and he has the most amazing fucking stories ever. He's lived in San Francisco since the seventies and was super active in the gay rights movement -- he met Harvey Milk multiple times, and was part of the White Night Riots.
So anyway! We picked him up, then went to City Hall. Loads of people: the anti-Prop 8 people were in front of City Hall, watching the arguments televised on a projector screen, while the pro-Prop 8 supporters were in front of the Court's proper building. Right before the noon newscast, all of the anti-Prop 8 supporters swarmed the others, so all the helicopters and newscrews could get were dozens upon dozens of rainbow flags and signs and such.
(Also, did I mention legions of attractive gay men? Carl and I were commenting
AFTER THAT we went inside City Hall, and sweet jesus it is gorgeous. One of the most beautiful buildings I've ever been to. We went up to see Harvey Milk's bust, then went for lunch. Where there was an attractive gay waiter. Also, we sampled cheese. I don't know, okay.
and then I went home! and then I slept for an hour since I, er, didn't sleep the night before. AND THEN IT WAS OFF TO THE WATCHMEN PREMIERE, which we were ... way too fucking early for. So Sam and I walked around and then he met my ~crazy~ mother and then we went and saw the movie which i am way too emotionally CHARGED and HYPER to type a reaction post to.
GRATUITOUS SEX. GRATUITOUS GORE. GRATUITOUS SLOOOOOOOOO-MOOOOOOOOOOOO. Also, the two guys next to us were drinking the entire time, but were very nice, and we shared our popcorn with them. And the guys behind us were referencing Arrested Development before the movie!
OVERALL? JAZZY HAD A GOOD DAY.
edit: OMG OMG OMG AND THERE WAS A TRAILER FOR THIS. JOHNNY DEPP AND CHRISTIAN BALE IN THE 20s AND MMMMM AND DO WANT.
