For the record: why I will not attend Pride this weekend

It seems like everyone I've talked to this week has been raving about Pride and asking if I'll be attending. I just wanted to say, for the record, I will not be attending Pride this weekend. Full post when you click on 'keep on reading'.

The thing is, I love my gays, and I'm friends and/or a fan of most of the bands playing at Pride this weekend, but seriously, there seem to be a lot of people who think that all I do is blog. I would like to reiterate that this blog is purely a hobby, and I don't make any money doing this, save for the occasional ad I post that garners some donation. I have been out every night this week for various events and shows, which I would like to post about, and my weekend is my only real time to do so. My day job at the ad agency has been crazily insane lately, so while most people look forward to going out on the weekend, I look forward to doing absolutely nothing. Of course, "nothing" meaning doing laundry, cleaning, writing, uploading pictures and video, spending time with family, and sleeping. Oh, believe me, there will be a lot of sleeping. So, everyone, have fun at Pride, take some pictures and feel free to email them to me and even do a write-up if you feel inclined. I'd be happy to post about it. But for me, this weekend will be a lot of ass on chair.

Side note, I've recently invited several friends to contribute to this site. If you have input or would like to post on SD:Dialed In, please e-mail me with a sample post. I am completely open to having people contribute to making this site more comprehensive and more inclusive.
