Out And About

Headed out to the Mr. and Ms. Oregon State Leather Competition tonight. Good times, lots of fun people, and an excellent sense of community. Sadly, there was very limited seating, so we ended up standing the whole time, so it was a tad on the uncomfortable side. Still, the contestants did a good job, and worked and tried hard. Met some of the PDX Bad Girls, which was cool, sine I hear so much about them through Di. Yeah, it was amusingly odd to be the only straight guy in the room (and the only long-haired one!), but good times.

OK, it's true that my "I hate feeling alone in the crowd" kicked in hardcore. It made me feel more alone than usual, and it made me miss the feeling of having that kind of community around me. Made me remember what it was like to go to some local event and have at least half the room know me, have people coming up to me for a hug and a smile all night. I miss that. I miss that a lot. I'm not sure when I went from being accessible to not.

*shrug* Guess I just got old...and moved away. Besides, hard to have people know you when you never get out.
