Well, sorry again, but my computer went on the IR again. But on the plus side, you guys seem to be getting more tolerant and understanding of the over-two-month lapses in the quote’s schedule. And you’re also a lot less surprised for some reason.
So hey. I just got back from visiting a few friends that moved out to Portland, OR (yes, I have friends that stupid). Actually, the place is really pretty. Lots of trees and grass and shit if you’re into that. No football team to speak of, but they do have cable if push comes to shove. They are only an hour away from Eugene which is just basically more pretty stuff. And then there’s the cold part of the Pacific Ocean. If I were Lewis, I would’ve ditched Clark and headed south for Sunset Boulevard. Lots more chicks in bikinis on roller skates and shit if you’re into that.
Joking aside, it was beautiful out there. 78 and breezy most of the time. And the “rain” they talk about it doing all the time out there is like the equivalent of spray coming off a trucks tire at you. It ain’t like east coast rain. Out here, when it rains, it poors. Hey! That phrase really does have a little merit to it. But anyway, I left there and flew into BWI at 6:31 at night. The pilot warned us, but I was hoping he was lying. Sure enough, it was 91 degrees and 85% humidity. I think I actually tripped over the air. It sucked. And I was jet lagged. Well, my normal sleep schedule usually gets me lagged about twice a week anyway, so that was easy to bounce back from. But I had to go to work the next day and everything. Man, I’m never going on vacation again.
On the plus side, while I was out there, I got a dose of self-realization. Not necessarily in the spiritual sense, but my friend’s wife pretty much put me in my place in the most exact way I think I’ve ever been described, word for word. I was trying to defend the point that I was relatively laid back when I’m not with Kevin, Joe and/or Mike. Kevin didn’t buy it. Tanis hasn’t known me since middle school, so she was more apt to believe…
“Well, I guess you have the potential to not be this spastic all the time.”
-Tanis, holder of the whip
I have the “POTENTIAL”… not to be THIS spastic… ALL the time.
