I love the ‘mildly infuriating’ subreddit.
The nexus of hell. Keeping my distance. (at Starbucks)
This is the very first Starbucks. Pike Place Market, Seattle.
He hates my phone so much, I have to fake him out by using its forward facing camera. He’s transfixed by himself.
I filmed our trip down from the top of Smith Tower. If I’d known how crazy fast the trip UP was, this would’ve been the other way around.
Yes, I met up with caterpillarcowboy today for lunch. (Don’t kill me, daryn!) Not only is he the nicest guy with the most ready laugh ever, he’s also a great sport.
He let me recreate his Amazon pic. You know when a product doesn’t have any customer reviews yet? They have his face there as a placeholder. I love it!
GPOYW, lunch in Seattle with suitep!
Today was the perfect day to head up to the Smith Tower observation deck with a friend from work.
He didn’t know I was afraid of heights until we got up there.
Some scoffed when reports surfaced in July of last year that Tool were planning on releasing their highly anticipated follow-up to 2006′s macabre tour-de-force, 10,000 Days, in early 2014, but according to guitarist Adam Jones, the album is complete and will arrive later this year.
This makes me so happy.
One of the guy’s from the band stopped into my sister’s shop in Portland, bought a hat for his wife, then gave my sister tickets to the show and VIP backstage passes. Lordy.
From now on I will be approaching my baked goods like a super hero.

I hope he likes his painting!
I came to America when I was seven years old, and I did not speak a word of English; Dr. Seuss books helped me learn to read. Once I could read, the letters and numbers were playing peek-a-boo with my eyes: they moved around, switched positions and flipped around the page, so naturally I continued to struggle.
In the fifth grade, I wrote a book report on a biography about 80’s pop singer Debbie Gibson, and I recycled the same book report in 6th grade to avoid having to read a new book. I tried passing it off once again in the 7th grade, but my teacher, Mrs. Wright, handed it back telling me she expected more from me. I tried to negotiate writing a report on elevator buttons, but Mrs. Wright would have none of my nonsense: she was adamant that I was to read a proper book and turn in a report by the end of the semester.
After our conversation, I visited the school library and selected Les Miserables, and although I struggled with it, (Cliff Notes helped) I eventually finished it. Because of Mrs. Wright’s encouragement, I also went on to read Crime and Punishment, Welcome to the Monkey House, and The Count of Monte Cristo.
Mrs. Wright and I have remained in touch all these years, and today I want tell her, “thank you for not accepting that recycled book report. Mrs. Wright - you are one of a few teachers who have made a difference in my life.”

Academy Awards host Ellen DeGeneres just wanted a little selfie with some of her friends in the audience on Sunday night. She ended up cramming some of the biggest stars in Hollywood into one shot — and breaking Twitter in the process.
