Has it really been since the LOST finale since I’ve posted?  Kinda rhetorical when I know that answer is YES!  My apologies right NOW…  This is gonna be kinda Stream O Conciousness since it’s late and I’ve been imbibing.

Trying to find a new place to exist.  Finally rolled Snake Eyes on neighbors here at our current abode.  Trust me, if it’s bad enough for ME to move then it’s way past ‘Normal Human Tolerance Level’!  2 more weeks o’ school for the kiddos.  Viktor has a new teacher next year and Alora is already onto the 2nd grade.  My the time does fly.  Alora has at least 3 more field trips before the end of the school year and she can’t wait for a single one of them.

I miss my pals.  Munkynutz here for a half a week was definately not long enough and John having a 7 to 4 ‘er when I don’t is, like, teasing me or something!  Jess was here and it was just like 15 years ago with the book readings, video watchings and game playings.  Good times indeed!  Vodka C*ck did rock it up on Memorial Day weekend though, that was fun times!

I liked the end of LOST…  of course I didn’t spend 6 years of my life following and dissecting the show.  I caught up via Netflix this spring while I folded laundry.  It rang true for me and originally I thought it was a ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ kinda deal.  After realizing that the last shot was a lingering Oceanic wreckage deal tacked on by ABC (and not of any significance, storywise) I’m even MORE O.K. with the finale!

Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 1 are down in the books for me.  Playing Assassin’s Creed 2 currently (soon as it’s done it’s Mass Effect 2) and hooked Munky on Trials HD for XboxLive.  Just ONE MORE TIME!!!!!

The only cooking I been doing is some BBQ chickens.  Made some ribs when the ‘Nutz was here but we ate at establishments more than we ate here.  But them Ribs Was GOOD!  Grillin’ the Chickenz this week along with a coupla New Yaaks!  God I hope we get this new place.

Whatta week or so!

Hey there everybody!

Man have we had some good times these last 10 days!  By us I mean the whole fam.  Munkynutz came to town for a job in Auburn WA and took a few full days to live it up like old times here in the household.  Made some really nice pork ribs (apple wood and mesquite) while Jesse was here and a steak salad with red pepper vin.!

Visited the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum (and hall of fame) with my brother of another mother.  Pics are available on our Farcebook pages.  Also spent a lot of time with the kiddos (Lacey fun fair, frisbee in the park and various other tendon damaging activities) Jess also took us to the Outback Steakhouse and it turns out Viktor likes the Bloomin’ Onion like a mutha!  But what we did the most was hang out ‘Old School’.  Vidya games, Vodka, PuroResu and musics!  It was a hot time in the old towne for many nights!

I’m kinda pissed.  Lost wraps up tomorrow night and I’ve gotta work like a dumbass.  Good news.  Hell’s Kitchen starts on June 1 this year.  Ramsay is AWESOME sauce!  Can’t wait.  Deadliest Catch has been pimp as hell this year too!

I hate my neighbors.  That is all!

L8 says N8!

This woulda been, like, 100X better...

Happy Friday Night!

BBQ fell through and I had to crisp up those tasty chicken and pigs myself.  Mesquite and flamage equal tasty dinners for the family!

Lots of cool stuff the last 2 weeks so I’ll just start with last weeks carwash that Alora and her classmates held to raise funds for a trip to the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma.  I stopped by and paid $15 to get 3/5ths of my van washed (kind of) as well as joining in to wash cars for about an hour.  Oh yeah and get pictures, here are a few:

Alora earns a trip to the zoo

Along with her classmates!

Sorry I don’t have any pictures of ME washing cars because noone else had brought any cameras.  The pictures I use for this blog are taken with my cell camera but I think they work to get the moment across and I also don’t have to worry wrecking a more expensive digital camera.

Also Peggy M. has gotten me hooked on:

Is this the NEW X-Files? We'll see...

I’m still in season One but it gives me something to watch between episodes of LOST this season.  MunkyNutz keeps going on about Leverage so maybe afterward I’ll check it out.  Super Street Fighter 4 comes out Tuesday that’ll be fun!

Later Gator.

Going to the BBQ tomorrow!

The family and I are doing really well. We are invited to a BBQ at Peggy M’s (I think the M is for Mariner!) so I don’t have to cook and get to watch a pro! I’m taking a six’er of her favorite beverage and a few pounds of meat. I think the kids are gonna have fun.

Just a quick one tonight as I have lotsa news and pics to post before the end of the week. Thanks for stopping by!

Tuesday Brewsday!

A picture sometimes says it all.

What a great day here in the GNW (Great NorthWest)!  Low seventies and sunshine all day picked up some New York strip steaks and baking potatoes.  Add a drink that is very similar to the one pictured above (I think they were brothers) and you have one of my favorite activities.  BBQ!  Something about meat and fire outside that just makes me smile.

Alora did indeed stay home on Monday AND today (one of the myriad reasons for skipping my post yesterday).  But Viktor’s hanging tough and making the bus to school in the morning.  I have got my editing skills up into a higher gear.  I took that picure above about 2 minutes ago and then ran it through my textifying programme and, voila, instant graphic!

When we moved to Olympia around 2 years ago we had to change phone numbers and when we did it we were not asked if we wanted to be unlisted.  Oh hell do I hate telemarketers, surveys (political and otherwise), fundraisers (how many pledges does rudeness get anyhow?) and scammers.  I frequently use www.whocalled.us to find out what these out of state numbers and 1 8xx numbers are and who they are originating from.  Right now I have one calling to verify some information on a check that I wrote.  Really strange considering all my checks for the last 4 years are accounted for and have all cleared for at least as long.  Somehow I smell a phishing scam.  I just recently had to change my credit card number and account because (either by skimmer or number generation) someone was charging SKYPE charges to the card.  That was a huge pain in the rear since I had to update a number of merchant accounts I have (Netflix etc.) on rotating monthly charges.  The card issuer was totally helpful and thank goodness I caught it before whoever came accross my number found out it was valid and went wild!

Well I think I’m gonna go play some Samurai Shodown and wait for the new episode of LOST tonight, I hope it’s as good as last weeks!
