Seattle Trip

 

Hey Internet,

So this past weekend we were with our good friends Isabel and Abraham, they were celebrating their 1st anniversary of being wedded together, and to celebrate we took a trip to Seattle. (Though it was actually a few weeks afterwards)

Here is Abraham, not wanting to be photographed

It was agreed upon by the males that we would be leaving sometime around 6… we actually rolled out of bed by 7, drinks from last night had us pretty relaxed.

We arrived in Seattle like at 11? I don’t remember, I took way to long in making this post since these events happened. But anyways we decided to explore downtown Seattle for a bit. After finding a parking spot we head to…

The Public Market Center on Pike Street!

We walked all the way through the market, I dont think we bought anything, we just took in all the sights and colors and smells. Just dipping our feet into the Seattle experience. it smelled good.

After that we saw a magician that got upset at our generation and walked away angrily because no kid wanted to get close to him, but a nice Vietnamese magician popped out to save the day with a nice rope trick. Sadly I didn’t have cash with me to give him. Then we walked the pier and made our way to Olympic Sculpture Park.

The first time we came to Seattle we took a picture with this butt, we decided to keep the tradition of butt photographing going.

Then we found this piece of art, it was a box, which is stuck to the ground, you can’t open. We know. Because we tried.

Here is the box to the left, and you can also see the space needle creeping in the background.

Later while walking we remembered that Seattle has that cool gum wall. We made our way back to the market, since it turned out it was right there! But not before stopping at…

Romios Pizza & Pasta!

They had this great deal, 2 slices for 5 bucks, and this great server, don’t remember her name but she was great, brought us our drinks and felt like a long lost aunt that worked at a downtown pizza bar, point I’m making is that it was good pizza and that you should go!

Anyway, we made it to the gum wall and contributed to Seattles effort to plaster this alley with gum. It was a little gross, luckily the gum is all dry, well it looked like it, I sure as hell wasn’t going to check.

Our legs felt all wiggly and sickly after all the walking, so we headed back to our hotel. We also needed to get ready to go eat at The Pink Door.

The food was delicious! like a foodgasm, you can’t really put it into words how good this lasagna that I got was.

That was the end of that first night at Seattle, we headed back to our hotel were we finished the day by watching Michael Westen save some kid.

The following day we went to the Pacific Science Center! It was awesome. There was butterflies, Dinosaurs, Space, Whales, Real Sheep Brains, they had it all! Even had the chance to smell what the breath of someone that doesn’t brush their teeth is like. Ripley’s also happened to be there with some pretty cool stuff as well. All in all it was awesome.

Noodles were in order after that since we were hungry and it hit the spot so good, it hurt, the Ramen we had was delicious, then to finish the day we climbed to the top of the Columbia Centre. (Elevator actually) It was a great view, though I didn’t have a camera good enough. But trust me it looked great.

Great trip with good memories, I give Seattle

Pens!

Lately I’ve been thinking that I need I need to get organized, with being an adult and having to be responsible with a household. Before when I could just brush it off as just being another distracted teen. But now when I forget to buy groceries my groceries don’t magically replenish (thanks to my parents <3), no, now I just starve.  So I started looking into getting a planner and some pens.

Luckily, my lovely wife decided to surprise me with a planner.

That just left me with finding a pen, I decided to see if there was good pen to use. so after googling some pens, turns out there’s a whole part of the website I had never been too.

There was just tons and tons of information on different pens, well anyways to cut this long story, short, I was led erroneously to believe that G2 pens were some kind of amazing pen, but it turns out that it was a lie, I ended up buying some Jetstream pens at Staples for 7 dollars, I also got some  F-301.

a whole gaggle of pens
So here is the result of pen shopping after reading several pen reviews

In case you’re interested in learning more useless information on pens, this website does a really good job of condensing it all into an easy to read format about pens, how they work, what you need, and other stuff.

Things that I consider interesting, things in Oregon probably
