… how atrocious the weather is 9 months of the years. I was a tad late getting up the hill, so I missed the best part of the sunset. Nevertheless, a 75 degree evening, over looking downtown, with a big old volcano looming in the distance feels pretty grand.

Becky and I are doing ALS Double Day fundraiser ride again this year. The two-day ride in Washington’s Skagit valley raises money for the Evergreen Chapter of the ALS association. In order to help motivate people to donate, I’ve put together a little fundraiser raffle. For every $5 you donate to my fundraiser page, you [...]
Granddad Bob with Bud in hand. My grandfather passed away Monday night. It didn’t come as a surprise. He’d been in the hospital since the previous week after having a bad heart attack while mowing the lawn at his house. Surprise or no, the passing of a relative is still sad and still a shock [...]
Better pictures to come. Becky and I adopted a bunny. His name is David Flopster Wallace. He is awesome. Becky and her EarthCorps coworkers were working in Frink Park down in Leschi on Tuesday when she spotted a black bunny hanging out near by.

The decision to stay out on the west coast for the holidays was inspired less by romance than by a lack of money and the fact we’d both been east for Thanksgiving. [...]
Dear pretend blog readership, I’ve got some bigger posts in the works, but have been amazingly exhausted by my crappy 6-days-a-week seasonal job doing packing and shipping for an online jewelry company (funny story about ignorance and bigotry coming soon!) so I haven’t been posting at all. It’s over this Thursday. Expect at least a [...]
There were a few noteworthy changes in my life, both bad and good, at the end of October/beginning of November. In typical me fashion, I completely neglected to mention any of it on this blog. The Bad: I am no longer writing my PubliCola column. The short version of the story is that PubliCola wanted [...]
