July 2005 Archives

Ok, I suppose I am a bit lazy since I haven't posted in a while but I have a good reason. I have been really busy on the weekdays and I have been in Seattle every weekend for the past month except one so I haven't had much time to post. This weekend will probably be our last weekend up there for a little while though. It will be nice not driving for 6 hours every single weekend anymore. It has been fun seeing everybody up there so much though. I always have so much fun there. Even though we aren't going to Seattle in August it will still be a busy month. I've got my friend Lisa's wedding shower here then the weekend after that we may go rafting, then I have my 10 year high school reunion at the end of the month. I am really looking forward to that. It will be nice to see everybody again and get caught up on who is doing what. Then over Labor Day weekend I have Lisa's bachelorette party to go to. I definitely can't say there has been a shortage of things to do this summer.

I watched Ladder 49 with Karin tonight and oh my goddness...that was such a sad movie. So I will give you the summery of the movie. A firefighter gets trapped in a burning building and the whole movie is him remembering the past 10 or so years, all while he is trying to dig his way out of the building.

If you plan on seeing the movie stop reading this now. This will ruin it.

All the firefighters are searching for him, and when he is almost dead and finds out that they can’t reach him he tells them that it is too late and to evacuate the building. His wife kept having dreams of the red car pulling up to her house when he didn’t come home to tell her that her husband was killed in a fire. When that red car pulled up to her house and she saw it I nearly lost it. I thought for sure they would find him and pull him out and it would be a happy ending. That had to be the saddest movie I have seen in a long time. It left me feeling very thankful that Jake isn’t in a job where he could be killed everyday.

I bet you didn't know that I am friends with Fabio, but here he is sitting in my dining room.

Here is me and Jake at Chris & Kieran's wedding this past weekend. We had an awesome time!! There was an open bar and lots of dancing. Although I love to dance, alcohol is the liquid courage I need to go out on the dance floor. But that wasn't where the party ended, after the bar closed and the DJ packed up, a bunch of us went over to Nishan's house for Tully's birthday party. I think we ended up leaving there around 3am or so. There was definetly a lot of fun to be had on that night, and I had it!

July will now be officially known as The Month of Seattle. Although our weekly Seattle trips started in June "The Month and a week of Seattle" didn't sound as good. So we were in Seattle last weekend for Kieran’s bachelorette party and Chris’ bachelor party and now this weekend we will be back for their wedding. We won’t be up there the weekend after that but we will be back up the next weekend and the weekend after that for Hilary and Rich’s wedding. It will be as if we never moved back to Portland during the weekends. Now as I am typing this Jake tells me that I am all wrong. Maybe we will just be up there every weekend this month so we won’t miss anything.

The bachelorette party was really fun!! We ended the night at Neighbors, which is a gay bar in Capitol Hill. Some of it was a bit disturbing to see but it was a blast anyway. Simone and I went up onto the stage and danced with some gay men. It was kinda fun dancing with men that didn’t want to take us home afterwards. And I got to see a guy in a cat suit. How many of you can say that?
