After a week in Denver, a road trip from Indiana to DC, a handful of days at Netroots, Pride weekend in DC, and then a couple of days spent with a friend visiting from the Midwest, I'm absolutely exhausted. It's a good sort of exhaustion; I've seen so many friends and made a ton of new ones, but I'm just brain dead currently.

So I'm going to close out my day with this silly video of the history of gay slang from 1990-2020. While I realize it's just a cute comedy quip, my misfiring brain automatically had two questions:

  1. Can you call it the history of gay slang when it predicts the future?
  2. Do you really think we'll still be using Twitter hashtags by 2017? That's a lifetime in internet years.
