Odds and Ends

It seems as if I haven’t posted any real blogs in a while (concert aside). The summer has been fabulous and I really do not want it to end! I like fall (I really do), but the shorter days and longer hours at work are going to kill me. Not literally speaking but you get my drift. I am ridiculously happy that this weekend is going to be sunny and warm! On the agenda for today: wakeboarding. This may be my last chance this summer! This time I’ll be sporting my brand new bikini (see exhibit A), and hoping against hope that it doesn’t come off! ;D

I’m also hoping that I can sustain my progress, and ride the waves a little longer this time (see exhibit B). Maybe someday I’ll be as good as these two (see exhibits C and D). Next summer perhaps?

Sarah, Bridgette and I hosted a fantastic party a month and a half ago. I’m not tooting my own horn (*toot*), it really was amazing (see exhibit E). ;) We had just come off the hottest days in Seattle’s recorded history, and people were ready to dance. The best part? We’re doing it again in a few short weeks! Hopefully the turnout and energy will be just as awesome!

Montana!! I know, I know….I never wrote a longer post. My bad. But I did have an awesome time (see Exhibit F)! I didn’t float the creek (and am half determined to drive down and down so) but it was extremely enjoyable regardless.

Ward Campout on Whidbey. Limited activities planned, but us girls had fun with one another. A few highlights included: the company (Sarah and Cherilyn), the giggles, the beach walking and the tent debacle. And I found some cute teesny tinsy shells on the beach(See exhibit G).

Dancing. The last eleven months have seen A LOT of dancing. The last month and a half has not. Let’s start that up again, shall we??

Little, baby hikes. Ice caves, etc (see exhibit H). Fun and totally painless. I am determined to do some real hikes in the next month and a half. The next few Saturdays are booked however…which leads me to my next point…

5 Ks. Iron girl is this weekend. And the end of the month will bring the AIDS walk (with the UW medical team - don't ask). I’m not a hardcore runner; I just like to have fun.

Dear Summer,

I never want you to end!! Please last two more months at least!!!


Sad in Seattle,


My goal for fall? Don't let a certain bitchy girl make me feel inferior. Or win.

Dear So and So,

Oh, it's on! Don't think for one minute that you can pull one over on me!


p.s. I don't like you.

Dear Fate,

I think you are a total bitch. Seriously, why are you trying to ruin my life?



p.s. Have I broken a mirror recently? Perhaps more than one??

For Those About To Rock...

I went to the AC/DC show last Monday, and let me tell you it rocked! The show was even better than I was expecting (and since Brian Johnson's voice was reportedly "trashed", I didn't have high hopes). Sure the guys are old (really old), but they put on a fantastic show. Highlights? Besides the drunk woman who kept asking to sit in my lap, the pot smokers, the anal woman sitting to the right of me who glared and exhaled every time I accidentally touched her....The bell lowered for "Hell's Bells", Angus's striptease, having the lyrics to "Big Balls" quoted to me (repeatedly) by my concert mates, the excitement of "TNT", the tour of "old" Tacoma, and having so much fun that I honestly didn't care if I bumped the woman next to me or not. My main regret? Forgetting my camera. Sure it was probably too dark in there anyway, but I'm still a little bummed.

We never actually heard "Big Balls" (which was a bitter disappointment to me), but I couldn't manage to get that song out of my head for days. Days!

Oh...and another favorite thing? Being able to listen to the concert again and again if I feel so inclined!! I love iphones right now... I even had a dream two nights ago that I bought one. Since I have a contract with Verizon this dream may never come true...or at least not for a few years.
