portland

in portland now. my parents were awake when I got home, so they got to meet evan .... my mom teased him, telling him he looked like a white supremest. heheheh.

anyway, evan crashed already. he slept on and off the whole way down to portland (while I stressed out about not being able to see the road half the time... damn was it raining hard!). once we got here he picked a bedroom and fell right asleep (so many free bedrooms in this house now with ryan and i both gone to college).

anyway, i guess i should sleep now too. tomorrow evan and i are having lunch with tony from forumzilla.com, then driving back to seattle in the evening for the party.

ya know, i've been to a lot of parties but this one isn't looking too happening. to begin with, a bunch of people I'd hoped were coming aren't. then, of the people that are here, nobody's dancing and there's a bunch of really young little people that I don't know. hopefully it gets better later. since i didn't help with the preparation of it i can't feel too bad if it turns out crappy.

oh, also of interest ... i got a new computer today. i still need to put it together, but i think i have all the parts. that's tomorrow's project. it's going to be my new windows computer, and my current windows computer is going to be my new linux computer, and my current linux computer is going to be an mp3 kiosk/appliance type thing in the living room with tv out, remote control, and totally locked down. that's another fun project in itself.

think i'll go back to the party for awhile until i get bored again, then come back here. i'm not in a party mood, really. evan wasn't either -- he left almost right away.
