Flash mob?

There was wackiness afoot in midtown today. And it was a great day (weather-wise) for it.

About 3:00 this afternoon, a medium-ish sized pack of people (both men and women) clad in red dresses were running around the heart of midtown. I'm not exactly sure why-- there appeared to be no statement being made. I spotted said group at 26th & I.

Anyway, it was amusing. Today was a great day to be outside...especially in a red dress, obviously.

my guess is that they were leaving the Cesar Chavez march. I saw some of them from my window and it looked like they were wearing red.

But men in red dresses? With athletic whistles?

The manner they were behaving in was a bit too unusual for a "march," really. A couple out on their balcony asked me if I had any idea what it was. I, of course, had none.

In San Francisco I'd expect to see flash mobs. Here in Sac, it kind of seems rather...pointless. But then, I guess that might've been the point.

I found you through the Sacramento journal and read some of your entries. You are highly amusing. You are Texan, however, but I will be willing to forgive this slight imperfection (I am Oklahoman) because you are...quite amusing. Anyhow, this is me saying hello. Which school do you attend? I take one class at SCC. Yes. Only one.

If I took the humor out of my journal, it'd be just like the other 500,000+1 journals out there. Eye-gougingly boring. But I do tend to rant from time to time...so be forewarned. ;)

Hmm, an Okie. I suppose I too can forgive that--especially seeing as you managed to escape. Actually, I have nothing against Oklahoma. I've only been through it a few times, and I was too young to absorb the Oklahoma-ness that I assume one gets when driving through Oklahoma. I do know that our former neighbor, Louisiana, is full of sulfury-smelling refineries.

I'm at City College as well. I'm in the Journalism program, and have enjoyed it thus far. Here recently, I've developed a slight case of readytobedone-itis. Just one more semester... Then I intend to inflict further pain on myself by transfering to SFSU and continuing the process. ;)

Anyway... 'allo. :) I've added you to my friend's list.

Oooh, I've been friended. Consider yourself friended as well. Though I am afraid my LJ falls under the boring category.

Journalism, hmm? I was a journalism major for about two seconds in college, back at Oklahoma State. I ended up with a degree in English, however, and now take Spanish at SCC because...well, just because.

Actually, I'm shooting for a degree in Technical & Professional Writing, although I may well go ahead and pick up the double major. The A.A. (I'm hoping) will help keep me fed in out in "The City". (I guess I'd best get used to saying...or at least accepting that moniker, although it makes me cringe.)

How long have you been in out here in Sac'to?

Oh dear. A tech writing major. Guess what? My degree is actually "English with an option in Technical Writing." Eerie, don't you think? Not that I use my TW knowledge for anything other than pissing off people who write training manuals. But you know, whatever.

I've been in Sacramento three years come May 19. How about yourself? What classes are you taking at SCC?
