Occupy Oakland, Again

And I don't know why I'm thinking about this when Oakland is fucking shit up at the port and all but when I look at footage it reminds me of the time when Aunt Shannon, Cousin Mary and I took an afternoon's baton twirling class in a city park upstate. We all wore spandex shorts (they were VERY popular then) and twirled with a fervor not seen since Circus of the Stars!

Now I know it says Aunt "Jamie" and her hair is not exactly the shade of blonde/green that Aunt Shannon's was back then, but the cigarette, Bud Light and swing tank are 100% Shannon. And yes, the music is not Brenda Carlini AKA Brenda Carlisle's Heaven is A Place on Earth but this is as close as we can get without actually being there.
