So, I would have chosen another pic, had I taken one. I was riding the bus to Pioneer Square and these two women hopped on board. I've seen them a few other times on the bus, and actually they are kind of cute. Two women, one is blind, the other needs assistance, too, but yet I always see them together. And yes, they are kind of odd, wearing goggles and carrying stuffed animals and what not.
My friend Ed introduced me to Chili's in the U District awhile ago. April and I were up in the area last night for the TechCafe/Cocollage meet up, and decided to hit up Chili's before we took the bus back to Belltown. We make excellent decisions.
April and I were hanging at Bedlam. I was working on client stuff, she on Doodles. Yep, it's an original doodle, all about me. You're jealous. But you can go to her site and maybe she'll make a personal doodle for you. www.aprildoodles.com
My client Skybox Sports Lounge held a meet and greet for UFC fans, which included appearances by a few fighters (The Korean Zombie, Carlos Condit) and other UFC people like Dan Miragliotta, and Stitch.
As a girl who knows nothing about UFC, it was fun for me to talk to fans, the fighters, their agents and learn how UFC is a huge, complicated and popular sport.
Here is a pic of Carlos. Not only is he easy on the eyes, he was really nice, personable and polite, too!
It was a bit warm(er) and April and I decided a five mile uphill walk would do us well. We crossed through Seattle Center and there was a little girl playing in the fountain. It was super cute and I had to take a pic ;)
P.S... April has an awesome blog, Shoe Lusting. Please visit it!
Belltowners have little faith that the police will actually respond to a 911 call regarding gang or drug activity. I know, we get it, crack sales are lower on the list than many other issues but it's a huge problem. This pic was taken around 3:30am, just after a huge group of about 20 or so people were receiving their daily morning delivery of drugs to sell, from the big guy.
Yeah, I know too much about this... and really, just wish the dealers would be quieter and not disturb my sleep.
My friend Greg is working on a documentary about the sport of tower (stair) climbing. I went to help him while he was filming and as a bonus, we were able to see this amazing view!
Also, if you're curious about tower running, check out this trailer for his documentary!
Kushi was the last stop of our spontaneous pubcrawl. Marissa's brother and his GF were visiting, we had to show them a good time. But, apparently, according to the other pics taken before this shot, we, um, shot some tequila.
Por que es la naranja en mi bolsa?!?
All of my pics from today were food pics, except this one. This is a pic of Marissa's medallion on her necklace, which was inherited from her grandma. She has no clue what it means, can anyone translate? (Does this feel like Spaceballs?)
I ran into Brandon & Laura at BTP, and they were doing some St. Patty's Day Day Drinking. Well, I couldn't pass this up. I went home, got all St. Pat's Day ready and we hit the bars - hard.
This was from Owl 'N Thistle, which was a few stops in. And yes, our night ended at Cowgirls, err, wait, not ended, but it was a stop.
I happened to be on my balcony watering my almost dead plants when I saw a plane fly by with a banner attached. It circled the Space Needle a few times, for what I only could assume was a Space Needle marriage proposal.
I know it's impossible to read, but it said - Kristine, I <3 u. Will you marry me. Alfred.
So, there are very few musicians that I love, I mean LOVE and Joshua Radin is one of them. As soon as I saw that tickets were on sale, I immediately jumped on that. I throughly enjoyed the show and am still trying to figure out a way to get him to play a private show for me. Stay tuned for that.
And thanks April for coming with me! #Pantydropper
And here are my fav tweets from the evening. Tweet & Tweet.
Kristy messaged me that the Alexi show was sold out, and asked if I had a hook up. Well, I've been known to pull strings and was able to hook us up on the guest list for the show at the Tractor. And that's how Kristy and I were able to spend an evening with Alexi.
It was hard to find a picture today because I took so many amazing pictures and did so much today (including a trip to the Eastside - yikes!)
But I found this picture to be the most random. I was sitting outside of Bedlam, waiting for Will and April to pick me up when I noticed a scooter "gang" passing and some stopping to talk to this guy. Make sure you click on the pic to get a close up of his awesomeness.
