Seattle Eateries

Took Whitaker to Red Robin ... 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).

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.

Day o' fun

Woke up at 9-ish, took a shower. Chuck came home then Whitaker and I went with him to his dad's house and we all jet skiied, along with Shana. Fun shit.

After that Chuck and Shana headed off to Gig Harbor and Whitaker and I went downtown ... went to Speakeasy, saw the servers, then went to the space needle, rode the monorail to westlake, got some thai food, then drove back here through traffic.

We're back now and beat. Whitaker's playing crappy music on his laptop and won't put on headphones because "we're jamming".

We took 5 minute naps earlier ... I need another. So beat.

Oh, check out this stupid email:
    Subject: PLEASE REPLY

    Hi Brad,

    I left a message with your mother, it is the only number that I have.. We do major colo now!

    My name is [snipped], and I have been with Virtualis (Hosting.com) for almost 2 years. I just wanted to let you know that you now have a direct resource for business opportunities.

    In the past 2 months things have changed, but I want you to know that it is very important to us that you know that we want to "support" your efforts.

    What is a good time to talk, and at what number?

    Please drop me an email, or give me a call so that we can talk about the future opportunities that are being created by Hosting.com. Is there anything I can help you with? (Take Advantage of me :-)

    "Team Player"
(All emphasis is mine) Uuuuhhhhh..... "direct resource for business opportunities"? Sorry sir, I only do business with humans, not marketing droids.

Oh shit... funny conversation from the trip. Whitaker and I are walking around in Mall of America in Minneapolis (Blythe was in some shoe store) and he says, "Dude, I miss my boobs. I mean, they're just so wonderful. I don't know what I ever did before boobs. They're just so perfectly designed... like pillows. One wouldn't do, you'd roll right off, but with two you can just rest your head in the middle."

Whitaker misses his boobs. He just called them and talked to them ... I talked to their owner and she told me to take good care of Whitaker because he's her source of money. She's so funny.

Whitaker's so sweet, though ... I mean, look at this adorable picture of him. That's him on a 1.5 hour phone call during our road trip. He played with the 18" dildo almost the entire time. He also took a piss during the meeting (at a reststop) and played a game of football. That was fricking hilarious.

What to do now? Kinda dead.

Got a lot of sun today ... body warm.
Blythe cut Whitaker's hair.
Ordered pizza.

I want to drive somewhere and work on my laptop for a few hours, away from everything. Can't, though ... Whitaker and Blythe here. It'll be fun later, though... so many possibilities with a laptop. New Linux kernel fixes a few bugs I was experiencing on my laptop.... need to rebuild that tonight, perhaps.
