I ended up *literally* leading the parade.
How these things happen, I do not know.
I saw: Matt Kelling, Thor Pederson, Justin (of Bryan, Jeremy, Justin, & sons), Ethan, Rasshole, Sue & Daryl, and a million other people I hadn't seen in forever.
Also, I stayed up until 8am talking to a girl, of all people. Obviously, this means I did not snare he-who-shall-not-be-named, but not because I chatted with new friend. I didn't snare he-who-shall-not, because I was too busy doing volunteer stuff, and he met someone that he brought back to the after party at his house. Not my idea of fun, so I didn't attend.
But the boys from Pride Committee drooled after me evidently, so that's refreshing.
I simply *must* do this again next year.
