32 thousand Feet and 542 miles an hour

Posted by Timo |

Back in seattle last night.

I had a great time and saw family and seldon seen friends. Missed a few but it's hard to coordinate schedules, etc. there's always next time, right?

I also managed to drive over a thousand miles going back and forth to minneapolis, cedar rapids and des moines. I don't think i can do that anymore either. It was worth it to me but it sure annoyed my parents.

I don't think I will do a full 2 weeks again. It's too hard to put your life on hold for that long.

Friday the 23rd!

Posted by Timo |

low key vacation. Driving around the midwest in a gray mini-van!

"Mini-van, Mini-van - does whatever a mini-van can!"

traipsed down to cedar rancid and had dinner with my dear friend Jay. mark rode with me for shits and giggles. Dinenr at olive garden did not sit well with me and I ended up losing it at 6am. Delciious!

Going out tonight with mike, the van bue's, karie. etc. hope to see mizz brown as well. have had a headache everyday since i've been here. what is that about?

Yesterday I bought and watched "the brothers grimm" = Holy waste of money!

I'm leaving it here for my sister's family to all suffer through!


1. Hank, my sister's 13 yr old golden retriver

2. General grievous from revenge of the sith ( xmas present from Mike - THX!)

3. General Grievous and new best friend, Hank.


KING KONG The White Man Done You Wrong

Posted by Timo |

Mark and I went to KING KONG tonight.
Was it good? VERY
Was it 3 Hours Long? Seriously.

the bug scene alone is worth seeing it for. Your skin will seriously detach itself from your body and try to crawl away.

On a somewhat related note, when i was a kid ( make that over 25 years ago ) I had a record called "Goofy Gold" - on this record was "King Kong Your Song" i think it was by Bobby "Boris" Picket of "Monster Mash" fame, but I could be wrong.

This song has randomly popped into my head hundreds of times over the years so I thought I would share what I remember of the lyrics. Keep in mind a late seventies semi-disco feel and you'll get the idea. LOVE IT!

:On an island with a mountain in the shape of a skull,
There lived natives in a village beneath a towering wall.
A giant bolted door stood over half a mile tall.
Behind it lived the mightiest creature of them all!

King Kong! King Kong!
The white man done you wrong!
And so we sing this song to you.
Mighty Kong Kiiiiiing Kongggggg!
Hunga Hunga Hunga Kong!
Get a load of mighty Kong!
Million Natives can't be wrong.
Hunga Hunga Hunga Kong!

and on and on.

i need to find an mp3.

that is all.


Pre-Teen Drama Queen

This is my 8 yr old niece, Leah.
I saw her Christmas musical/play on Sunday.
She's rather hilarious.
that's because she was born on the bathroom floor on April fool's day.

Last Night Of Mall-Hell

Posted by Timo |

This is me leaving the mall last night at 11-ish. It looks like the Fog is coming to get me!

I'm done with the mall until the 30th. Will be in the midwest from thursday till 2 thursday later. (15th-29th)

Retail is Hell during the holidays. I keep telling myself that this year will be my last! Maybe this year! Yes Yes! Why do Ii have two jobs anyway?

I'm sure I'll be blogging from the freezer...errr, midwest.

Happy Whatever!
