the fair! the fair!

For those of you that don’t live in the Pacific Northwest, you might not know about the wonderful over-packed-ness that is the Washington State Fair. Also, previously known as the Puyallup Fair, which I can only assume they changed since no one from out of state could pronounce it. For those not from here, that’s pronounced…

shinies

So, for the last couple of weeks, my grandpa was asking me to come look through my grandma’s stuff and take anything I wanted as mementos. I put it off for a few days, because honestly going through my grandma’s stuff – mementos or not – was just too depressing to handle. Finally, however, I…

I geared up, navigated my way to SoDo, attended a 12th Man tailgater, and then made my way over to the stadium. Just…

TGIF (vol. 3): why shouldn’t i ask?

Today’s TGIF commentary was a Facebook re-post from Upworthy, regarding being snobby when you first meet someone: if you don’t feel like clicking, I’ll tell you. The question is: “So what do you do?” I’m sure the lady that wrote it, whoever posted it in my news feed on Facebook (I can’t remember now) was trying…
