Ahh, Berkeley! [Jul. 18th, 2005|11:46 am]
So a group of us were driving through Berkeley last night, coming back from a movie. (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, again. Wonka is just so freakin' lovably psychotic!)

Stopped a signal and looked over to notice that, in the knot of people waiting for the crosswalk light, there was someone in a dog fursuit on a skateboard. Now, it was a simple fursuit -- just a jumpsuit with tail, hood, and a fabric muzzle. But it was clearly someone being a dog on a skateboard.

We all (being a car full of furries) gave him thumbs up and big grins. The rest of the people around him weren't even taking notice. Maybe this was the guy's normal night out?

Ahhhh, Berkeley. Gotta love that town! :>

Skateboarding in Berkeley... NICE! Hes braver than I!

THats the only place where such an activity increases the likelyhood of being run over by a HYBRID tenfold! Those cars dont make any noise. Hope the skater doggy is carefull! LOL!

I think it's at least as likely to be an SEP field at work.

Doubly so given that it's berkeley, where such things are rampant to begin with. ;)

Of course! I don't have a problem with random fursuits appearing, so the SEP field didn't have an effect on me. It makes perfect sense! :)

I was there, swear to God. :o)

I swear to god himself what Nic’s saying is true. I was in the car with him to see Charley in the Chocolate factory (which I am happy to say is a GREAT film.) There the guy in the dog suit and a skate board was right next to us, waiting for the Light to change, and not a single soul with in eye shot was even phased. I love Berkley, it makes me feel so normal ;) .

On the watching of Charley and the Chocolate Factory…. (WARNING: it is advisable to take no mind-altering drugs when watching this film, for it will truly blow your mind)

Yeah people didn't pay a great deal of attention (at least not what you would expect) when I was a mascot for the Berkeley Art museum. I got a couple of stares in my skunk suit but most people did not stop walking by.
