Lay off me, I'm starving!!

Hey dudes -- sorry it's been so long since I've last posted, but I figured I'd better give any remaining blog readers out there an update on my life.

Some of you may have heard, but Nathaniel, Jane, and I got booted out of our house. It was sad, and only now do I fully realize how good I had it there. Anyway, I ditched Seattle and moved to Kirkland to be closer to work. I moved in with James for a few months before I have to dish out money and get an apartment for me and the lady. Meanwhile, here is my basement abode:


It's pretty cool, but not too cool that I am not excited to ditch this place and move in with a lady (only 2 plus months til the wedding!)

Oh, and while I was moving over here to Kirkland, my old faithful blue Honda shot out some nasty smoke and gave its final breath. It was a sad day, because that car had served me for 230,000+ miles and had seen some pretty awesome times. These are some highlights in the old blue Honda:

1) Road tripping with Jared Clark to San Francisco to see the Notwist and hang out with those dudes out there, before they were all married
2) Amanda cracking the windshield with her foot in the middle of our break up
3) Road trip to Jenn Nations mission farewell -- Suzanne, Nathaniel and I at Las Vegas Casinos at 3 am. Also the same night as Suzanne's infamous mustard sandwich at Carl's Jr.

That's all I can think of right now. Feel free to give your memories and pay your respects in the comments below.

But with death brings new life. And this car was brought into mine:

It's a 2008 Honda Civic (high rollin, I know!) The ride is pretty dope and futuristic. So futuristic that it has a digital speedometer ("why yes officer, I can tell you the exact speed that I was going"). I figure it will be a handy car to have around when gas gets up to 1 firstborn/gallon.

Well that's it for my update. I will try to be better about updating this.

Oh, and now is a good time to buy your plane tickets for the wedding. Remember Aug 16th! We already have one confirmed guest: Mike Nations -- so that should be enough to get anyone up here.

Peace

Are Lisa and I going to win the "Came from the farthest away" Award? If so - we want Red Mill, we want Red Mill. This should be shouted much like NWA would yell - "We want Eazy!"

Red Mill it is.

oh jacob, we didn't tell you. Our wedding cake is going to be a Giant Bleu Bacon Cheese Burger!

In fact we can go to Red Mill every time you visit this summer.
