So this is one of the neighborhood streets in the gay village of Montreal. You know, I wonder what the thinking was when the 9th and 10th people decided to put flags up. "Just in case it's not clear that this is a gay street, we better put one out." (I mock, but I really don't care that much, whatever floats your boat yadda yadda)
The festivities and the heat around here have conspired to take me down. Yesterday's sore throat has now become a full blown cold. Fuck. Summer colds are the vilest. Watch now I'll get a cold sore to boot. (Also known as a fever blister, but we all know it's HERPES)
One of my favorite bands is performing in the park Thursday and it's FREE! Los Amigos Invisibles hail from Venezuela and they sing rock slash pop slash latin style music. Spouse hates some of the tinny Mexicany music sounds, but I find that to be part of the charm. (Plus, who can resist a group of guys who sing a song titled "Masturbation Session")
Last night we saw the most violent thunderstorm here ever. I've seen one similar crossing the Mohave desert, and spouse saw one like it in Hong Kong, but never here. It was the kind where the lightning is constant. And therefore, the thunder is constant, coming from near and far, crescendoing and waning. It didn't come out very well on the video, but I'm posting it anyway. I love how the final frame is during a lightning strike.
