I haven’t actually ventured the the two blocks from my house to the street fair half because I already know it’s going to suck and half because I can hear the suck loud and clear here in my house. Even with the windows closed. Even with the stereo on. Especially high on the suck level was whatever band was playing around 6PM and in between songs kept asking “Are there any celebrities here?” and then went on to play another sucky song. The parking suckatude wasn’t quite as bad as expected probably because everyone else realized the thing was going to suck also, well at least not as early on in the day. About 5 o’clock the streets started filling up and now they are packed to hell. Maybe the fact that it was deathly hot out had something to do with it as well – now that the sun has gone down the streets are thick with people looking for parking. Don’t worry about me, I took Cybele’s advice and stocked up on food and movies yesterday so I can safely not leave the house until Monday and avoid all the chaos bubbling a few feet from my front door. Oh wait, sounds like there’s some new sucky band taking the stage, oh joy!
