Mustache Contest!

March 2, 2009

My work held a mustache contest and I decided to participate. Having never grown facial hair beyond the ‘scruffy’ look this was an experiment for me.

What am I capable of growing? Well, although the result isn’t stellar, I think I grew a pretty respectable mustache. I was nowhere near winning the contest but I was nowhere near last place either.



Seafair Tourchlight Parade

July 28, 2008

This was my first look at the Seafair Torchlight Parade in Seattle. It was nice bring able to watch it from my balcony with friends, and with much alcohol consumption.

First of all, there’s no torches. It’s just called that because it occurrs late in the evening. It started at 7:30pm and didn’t end until around 9:30pm. This parade wasn’t as good as the Gay Pride Parade a few weeks ago but that’s a hard act to follow.

One thing this parade had though was the giant balloons. I was watching from my balcony at 5th and Blanchard so I could see the tops of the giant balloons traveling down 4th before I saw them entirely at the 4th and Blanchard intersection.

Anyways, good times for everyone. I think of WOULD be sweet if there were some torch jugglers as well but oh well.




Spring Break

Spring Break Graffiti In Belltown

Spring Break Graffiti In Belltown

     What the hell is all this ‘Spring Break’ graffiti showing up in Belltown?  This isn’t even of an artistic nature but just a crude penis and the words ‘Spring Break’ on each one.  When I first noticed this I saw it among other graffiti and didn’t think anything of it.  Then I was walking down 5th Ave and noticed it again a few blocks down from the first.

     Now I’m seeing it on Blanchard and Lenora as well.  C’mon fella, get some new material!  I would prefer no graffiti at all but if you must: get some class!  This crap is officially pissing me off.  If I catch the guy that’s doing this I’m going to get some good pictures and send it to KOMO Problem Solvers or something.  Maybe I’ll go out and get a paintball gun and hang out on my balcony all stealth-like and pop a paintball cap in his ass.

     Has anyone else seen this graffiti around, anywhere else besides Belltown?  God forbid this guy decides to expand his penis empire to Capital Hill or Queen Ann.  Maybe I’ll start a Neighborhood Penis-Graffiti-Man Watch.
