up north

I did an experiment where I drove around town with the kids and tried to take pictures from the window.  The kids were a little too anxious to make it a real enjoyable outing.  Next time I'll take them to the beach or some park somewhere.


No one is there

I looked over and this light on the floor looked like the sky that was filtering this light was on fire.  It doesn't really come through here 100%, but you can maybe see 10% of what I'm saying here right?


I'm so glad P and I got married before weddings got their own hashtags.  However, #ALI+SPENCER was killer fun.

Labor day weekend is typically when the paternal side of my family has a family reunion, annually, at the Oregon Coast.  For this and all foreseeable Labor Day's I'll be working ungodly hours doing corporate income taxes.  This Labor Day everyone was away and I went to see movies three nights in a row at various 2nd run movie theaters, the kind that serve beer and slices of pizza.  Before I saw X-Men Days of Future Past on Labor day the day, or maybe that Sunday prior, I was over in East Tabor, bar-hopping for a few hours, trying to ease my mind at the ungodly hours I was staring down in the coming days and weeks, and I went to a place that served Oyster Po-Boys, and I ordered one and kind of cried a little, Oysters being a staple at those family reunions out on the coast, where the BBQ is going and there's garlic butter a plenty and the oysters are damn near free and so fresh, and my dad dons a huge glove to BBQ them with, and it was a few days since I'd seen my family and I missed getting over there, missing my second Labor Day in a row.  The sandwich got a 2/10, significantly below expectations.  Oyster po boys kind of suck.

My actual favorite post of the year is when we check back in on these and I dicky with excel trying to get my if statements correctly nested and I miraculously always guess >65% correct.

Update as of 10/6/2014:
I badly want to update a few of these.  However, no matter what the guess is, I've leared to always go with the first guess.  Changing it never works.  However, if I was going to change any of these, I'd change the Spurs (which is why we're not changing it), the Suns, and maybe the Raptors.
