vuvuzelas

so apparently lots of people are ALL bent out of shape around these stupid plastic horns at the world cup.

once I checked into this there was nothing I could do but laugh, recognizing them from my time back in the '90s living at 24th and Capp in good ol' SF! (they have them at EVERY parade and street fair, and there are a LOT of parades and street fairs in the Mish, and they all went right past my place.)

yes, we hated them, with a hate that burned pure as only the noise-assaulted hungover brain can hate.

then, in 1998, we moved to the Haight and pretty much forgot all about 'em. (I could also go out of the house in sweat pants without provoking public comment, but that is another post altogether.)

now the vuvuzelas are in the news (I never learned the name BITD) and all I can do is laugh and remember so many sun drenched weekend afternoons gone by in my sweet old place in the Mish...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!

so, what can I say, but:

Viva Vuvuzuela!
