picked up Evan on the way. Chuck met us there half-way through to talk. Then we dropped off Evan and went with Chuck to Dick's (another place I had to show Whitaker, since he'd heard about it so much from us and Sir Mix-a-lot).Took Whitaker to Red Robin ... |
Tomorrow morning Chuck, Whitaker, and I are going out jet-skiin'. Tomorrow night Chuck's going to some party. Saturday morning we're picking his hung-over ass up in Gig Harbor, then heading down to the beach.
Room is getting clean.
I can't upload trip pictures because our cable modem upload cap is back in place, so uploading now goes at less than 15 kbps, and while it's uploading, we can only download at less than 15 kbps as well. (but once I kill the upload we can download at full speed again... most odd).
This sucks. I want DSL. @Home's routers are screwed twice a day anyway.
Oh, for road trip news, read this.
the main LJ guys are comming to Portland?
woo! I feel like I will be in the presence of greatness
(even though I live in Vancouver, and not Portland, and wont see you guys.)
I'm actually from Portland ... well, Beaverton actually.
That's right man, you have to remember your roots after you get all famous and stuff.
It's a small small world :)
So I guess you'd be REALLY excited to know that Brad's from Portland and currently living in Seattle ?

You and your 15kbs indeed
Hey, Brad, next time you're up for road trippin' or something, pop over to the UK, you'll love our net access ways
Think of this, a wonderful 56Kb dial up account, whereby you either pay per minute, or dial a free number, to get kicked off it every couple of hours or so
I dare you to try it
Now, be happy with the access you've got, damnit!
What is this Red Robin talk I keep hearing from you Washington people? I'm going to UW next year and I'd really like to know what that place is all about...mind clarifying?

Re: RED robin?
Your bio says you're going to NYU, btw...
i dunno if you knew this (maybe you did if not blah hehe).... plus this is just a guestimate, not offical nfo, i'll bugg my friends @ TW to see if they can confirm it.. but...
when you're uploading at max cap around here (in the NEW.RR subblock) you will only get 30 or so K down.. but once you drop ur upload to like, 5k under your cap, you're back at full speed.. (upload cap in NEW.RR is 45K).. i'm thinking it's just a anti-bandwidth-hog mecanishm so all the lil warez kiddies cant suck up both ways on the pipe... and most of em are stupid nuff to just think that the sites their downlaoding is slow, not RR capping their download when they hit their upload cap..
hope this made sense..

bah you guys didn't go to Lou Malnati's while in Chicago!
guess you'll just have to go order
one for delivery. (anywhere in the US!)
I'd reccomend the Lou Malnati/Eli's Cheesecake combo if you've never had Eli's before. the best cheesecake in the world and I can't get it anymore now that I've moved to Cali. :(
oh, any plans of taking a CA road trip? there's some amazing stuff to see in central Cali, like Big Sur and Seventeen Mile Drive. not to mention Lake Tahoe. :)
glad you had a good road trip!
you forgot Chuck's key element: the date, which he's on right now. he bought her one rose, how cute is that!
and if his ass and my ass are hung over, we may not make it to the harbor...you may just come get him in Tacoma, heh.
i remember going to Dicks when i was there last...a very suspicious place...not that i'm saying anything about you, but it became a quick topic of debate. i thought it was an underground ring of male prostitution, lisa said i just thought that because of the name. but next time you go, take a look around at all the guys there. there's a lot of them...hmmm....
but man, their shakes are really good.
You know their shakes are good if they only have 7 items on the menu and one of them is take home shake mix. :-)
I'm reading this a long time after the fact, but I wonder if I could get access to your road trip post? Sounds like you had a great time, and I'd love to hear all the gory details.
