Pink Elephants on Parade

I had an amazingly great *and* an amazingly bad weekend the last few days. But I can't say that it works out that fantastic and terrible things cancel themselves out. That's like having your leg cut off the same week you win the lottery and be able to say, "I'm pretty good". If you average out strong emotions, you still get strong emotions.

I met a lot of fun kinky people this weekend at the Further Confusion furry convention. I hope that some of those wonderful men and women turn into long-lasting friends. It certainly feels that way; a furry gathering is primarily a social event. It's an excuse to get together, drink, talk, fuck, party, laugh, and have fun. I think the animal costumes are just a quick way of getting in the mood. Pics at http://flickr.com/groups/furtherconfusion.

I lost two friends this week. One friendship ended in a 2 am fight, with me crying in my car driving back to San Jose. The other friendship ended because I don't think I can say we're friends any more. We're something different, and I am moving forward on that.

So yes, it was a mind-blowing weekend. Hope you had a good time as well.

The weekend looks like a lot of fun as evidenced by the Flickr gallery -- the dragon in the leather armor and the Pink Panther with the articulated eyebrows totally rock! But I don't see any pink elephants -- you did climb into the suit, didn't you?

Several of the furries on my LJ friends list are also pipe smokers -- any theories as to why now that you've gotten to know more of them?

Losing friends is really difficult -- I'm sorry to hear about that.

Yup! I was a pink elephant for a few hours. I'll post on that tomorrow.

One guy I met there was going to get out his pipe, but I never tracked him down later. I still haven't smoked the pipe I was given from elkocowboy's estate.

I don't know why furries would like pipes. They seem to be turned on by clothing and items that are individualistic. I theorize that furries like the unusual: boxer shorts, sock garters, fedoras, smoking jackets, long cigarette filters. Maybe it's a fetish, or just a way of interacting between human bodies and useful objects.

Be sure to bring the pipe with you to Smokeout -- I give hands-on lessons! ;^?~~~

"They're not" what? I don't understand your comment. I was hypothesizing about fetish: literally the word itself.


1 a: a material object regarded with superstitious or extravagant trust or reverence
c: an object... whose presence is psychologically necessary for sexual gratification and that is an object of fixation
2: a rite or cult of fetish worshipers

I think furries are a good example of fetish. It's the desire to connect to the spiritual through clothing and material objects. It's a cult - you know it is! {grin}
