Lousy With Superlatives

Wow, my 'long time no post' entry has a delay note... now I'm meta-late :-)

I wrote this over Thanksgiving... I'll add more, but hey, at least this is something ;-)


Goodness, it’s been a while since I’ve written in here. And goodness, have I done a lot in the meanwhile.

Also, be warned this entry is lousy with superlatives. Sometimes I’m exaggerating. You guess which ones.

And lest you think that this is for any bad reason, gentle reader, no: I’ve been happy and busy and quite distracted from writing, and pretty much everything else besides work and having fun. Let me see, if I may go on a brief rundown…

• Shows:
  • Robin Williams at the Showbox (that man is leg-slapping, eye-popping funny).
  • Josh Groban… voice of gold, like honey being poured into my ears.
  • Crystal Method… the good DJ’s don’t start playing til about 1am, so didn’t hang around that long after they actually started playing.
  • Sia at the Crocodile – less-known artist, but she’s a really excellent performer: fun, funny, and makes great use of her beautiful voice.
  • Jim Gaffigan. If you haven’t heard him… do. Paralyzingly funny.
  • Billy Joel … he played Purple Haze… yeah :-)
• Hiked to two different waterfalls, one of them twice
• Went to the Playa, for the third time. Got one welding lesson in the process, but didn’t get as far as really making anything.
• Got a kayak! This is the funnest thing ever! Okay, maybe not ever, but it’s way up there (up with road biking). Been out several times, including two places (Issaquah Creek off Lake Sammamish, and Rattlesnake Lake) that were so still the water was like glass… it was like floating through the most beautiful postcard.

Lucy the cat is now sleeping against the exhaust vent of my laptop’s CPU fan. Dang that’s cute.


Maybe I'll even have the energy to write about some of these in more detail... but for now, at least they're noted.
