Gay Days 2010

Went to Disneyland for Gay Days on Sunday. The day to go was Saturday, but we rocked it!
My day is best summed up by this pic.


My dear, sweet hus-cougar Mark couldn't go to Gay Days this weekend because of work. I was looking forward to it all year, so I was pretty bummed out. Luckily, my pal sluggobear offered to carpool with me.

We immediately joined up with a bunch of friends, and throughout the day ran in to more and more rad people, starting with these blokes.

I walked up to fogbear very nervously and said, "um...I think I know you..."
He responded with "Mike!" Yay. These two (the other guy is putzmeisterbear are so wonderful, disarmingly sweet and cute a cute couple. I can't wait to see them again some time.

On our way out of California Adventure, I ran in to none other than titoagogo!

There were three people I very specifically wanted to see that day, and Tito was definitely one of them. We only got to talk for a second because my friends were on the move, but yay! Next time!

I also got to ride the Buzz Lightyear ride with super-sexy Uwe. I kicked his ass, by the way. Tee hee.

When I ran in to xxtapemakerxx, I immediately knew who he was, but spaced on his real name. "Tapemaker?" I said. "Matt. Hi!", he said and hugged. I was all "Yay".

Epilogue

A year ago, Mark and I went to Gay Days on a whim. We talked to nobody (except Frank Decaro, but that's a different story).

I'm just amazed at how many people I have met in the past year. It's such a testament to the power of both the Interwebs and the whatever-you-wanna-call-it-bear community. I feel so lucky that I've sort of tapped in to all this.

To everyone I talked to yesterday: SMOOCH!

Whee!
This is such a great post, man! :o) It sounds like you had a totally RAD time!!! :o)

fogbear & putzmeisterbear (who is my physical/spiritual/sexual doppelgänger -- a situation I think we've both simply found easiest to surrender to rather than resist ;o) ) are the GREATEST guys, aren't they? They just have this "We're EXHAUSTED from being so FABULOUS and POPULAR, but [[sigh]] we'll let you into our little bubble of awesome for a second... [[le sigh]]"-vibe, don't they? And it's 100% genuine! They *are* made out of pure awesome! :o) Tibor/tibortiger & I hung out with them some at IBR this past year (you should SO go next year, d'you HEAR ME??? ;o) ) and fell madly in love with them (in a deeply spiritual way, I assure you! ;o) ).

Wow. That was a lot about them. I think I need to check my mind-control filters cuz that sounded a lot like I was mind-controled... Wait... No, I don't need to do that. These are not the droids I'm looking for, you're right... @_o... [[stumbles back to...umm...whatever it was I was doing]]


;o)

No, not at all. Why would you think that?

Now repeat after me: "I'll just die if I don't get this recipe."

My work here is done.

It was cool meeting you in person. Next time your at D-Land just give a shout or throw an orange in the air. Trust me, I'll be able to see it.

It was crazy crowded yesterday but I had a blast anyway.

Yay! Thanks. Yeah, I just spontaneously busted out my phone and started snapping shots mid-ride.

I'm only sorry I didn't come over to you first. I was sitting there thinking, "What's the name of that guy who I friended recently and who told me he was coming today?" I didn't want to just walk over and say, "aren't you that guy from San Diego I just friended on LiveJournal and who told me that he would be here today?" As you came over, your name popped into my head.

I had a blast spending time with you yesterday and getting to chat about all sorts of stuff. In the word of the day: "Yaaaaaaay!"

I was telling all kinds of people yesterday, "and then I saw this guy, and I knew who he was, but I was really intimidated. Turns out he's the sweetest and coolest guy."

If you were going for a mean, tough-guy reputation, I'm totally messing that up. :)

Meeting you and running around with all you guys really made the weekend for us. We need to do it again sometime. Hmmm... It HAS been a long time since I've been to San Diego...
