It’s IML / Shibaricon weekend in Chicago, where high cow and tons of rope are the order of the day.
This is the 3rd? 4th? year that Angie has helped in organizing/shepherding the IML Bootblack Luncheon/Fieldtrip (aka BBChaosSpendingFrenzy). We have been volunteering at the LA&M for a few years as well. Tonight was fun in being ushers at the IML Roast. Remind me to never get roasted by Thib Guicherd-Callin or Nick Elliot because… damn. Those men can skewer people faster than a fencing competition.
It’s been fun to welcome people to our city as “ambassadors” now, but it’s still about the same amount of work, and cleaning up, and the organizing and all that… but seeing the smiles and enjoyment and reunions and hookups and cruising… makes it all worth it.
Off to bed for us… IML awaits tomorrow.
