You held your breath! Good for you!
Exciting 3rd installment of my Japan trip. You know, the one from 3 months ago.
Grab a sammich, a beverage, and take the phone off the hook. This will take awhile.

Fire up the time machine!Collapse )

Ichiban
Well, this trip represented many firsts.
First time I've flown overseas
First time I've gone to Japan
First time I've paid $32.00 for 1/2 a salad and 2 pieces of tempura

I'm baaaaaaaaack!
Actually, wait. No I'm not...

I'm off to Japan tomorrow for the weekend. Long story, I'll hopefully fill you in when I get back, providing I'm in enough requisite pieces.

The exp-hair-iment has officially ended, and we now return you to your regularly scheduled chrome dome.

x_h00ine, you may now stop cowering in the closet in fear.

Saying Goodbye to an Old Friend
Saturday marked the end of an era, and saying our last goodbyes to an old friend.

For those of you who are familiar with the area, Hudson's Grill closed its doors for the last time Saturday, February 10th.

The eulogy was read aloud by a very emotional sampler platterCollapse )

Current Mood: Haunted

The Chronicles of Starbuckistan, the Epilogue
I don't wake up well. I'm not Og! level scary, but I'm generally cranky and not fun to deal with. Especially when made to get up at the ass crack of dawn.

And this time, I was up BEFORE the ass crack of dawn...Collapse )

Starbuckistan 3: Return of the Barrista
We grabbed lunch from a remarkable local sammich shop called "Subway"...

I dont know why it was called that..it was 5 blocks from the Metro...Collapse )

Starbuckistan, the city formerly known as Seattle, Washington, Part I
So queensurlyjes's best friend got married up in Starbuckistan, and QSJ went through all the effort of planning travel and accomodations and whatnot for our 6 day extravaganza. Our plans called to fly up there on Jan 30th, and fly back the morning of Feb 4th. Yes, Super Bowl.

Did you go up on the Space Needle? In fact, we did *NOT*!Collapse )

Let me 'splain, no..is too much, let me sum up.
Well. I've certainly been remiss in keeping all 3 of our readers updated as to the tumultuous goings on around the Fortress of Surlitude. I'll break them up so that they're not Robert Jordan'esque novels. And you know they're not Robert Jordan, because eventually, they'll END.

Please consult the enclosed 300 page glossary so you, too, can know what in the hell I'm talking aboutCollapse )

Nappy Hew Year!
Well, I've managed to stumble out of the cave I've been hiding in during the month of Christmas and Christmas bitching, eyes blinking rapidly against the light, to give you this update.

It's that time of the year again!
No, not camping out for badassed Black Friday deals. That's sickrubik's thing, and I'm greatly appreciative that he takes proxy orders. I really wanted to buy a couple big ticket items, but with Seattle in January and unfinished home improvement projects, I erred to the side of discretion. Besides, it's "want" stuff instead of "need".

Also, make things easier on the poor schmucks in your life who are trying to shop to find something for you for Christmas. I recommend all people cease personal purchases until after Christmas (everyday things notwithstanding). Every time I buy someone something that they end up saying 'Oh, I just picked one of these up last week!' deserves to be beaten unconscious with their present.

I also got something on Saturday that I haven't had in the year 2000.

A haircut.

Well, not really a haircut, more of maintenance with clippers by a professional. I'm letting it grow back until it reaches a styleable length. At which point I'll have satisfied my curiousity, and it will most likely get shaved off again. Providing I dont get frustrated at having to deal with hair again and shave it off before then...

Looks like Ugly Kid Joe was right...
I haven't updated in a couple weeks because, well, nothing new and/or exciting has happened recently.

bigrobcci finally relented and joined the LJ community. Welcome aboard, chap!

And, thanks to jhaenara, I found out what Tarot card I am like.


You are The Devil


Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession


The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.


Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.


What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.



Looks like I am the Goddamned Devil, afterall...

The things you learn at Taco Bell...
Last Tuesday, practice was cancelled due to a power outage at the dojo. So our sensei decided that he wanted his favorite sustinence: Taco Bell.

You have a walking Sebulba?!Collapse )

The New Hotness!
It was becoming time again to trade in the Highlander for a new lease on things. Managed to stumble across a good special, and picked up a new ride.

Behold, a brand new 2006 Toyota 4-Runner. I've wanted one of these for a long, long time...

And, no, brother Dan, it's not a 4x4. I'm not taking my preciousness out to the sand dunes or a rocky mountaintop. That's what your Tahoe is for.

Zomg Birthday!
Special birthday shout-out to my homey meanbuddha.

It is still unknown whether this is the actual day of his birth, or the anniversary of when he swam to America. Either way, best of wishes!

Houston, we have a kitchen
The kitchen is 99% complete! Just minor things here and there to finish up, but we have returned the kitchen to the state of "Fully functional".

Behold, I say unto you....erm...Behold!
