Playing Tourist in the Emerald City

We got to play tourist in our own backyard over the weekend. OK, maybe “backyard” is a stretch. Seattle’s more like 180 miles away. But for a while there, it was feeling like a second home. So that kind of counts, right? In any case, we headed north on Saturday morning for a weekend getawayContinue reading “Playing Tourist in the Emerald City”

There’s an Echo in Here

Hard to believe that Christmas will be nothing but a memory in less than one week! Friday night was our company Christmas party, and we had a grand ol’ time.

Sunday morning, we hit the University of Washington (UW, or “U-Dub” to the locals) because Audrey hasContinue reading “Like Hugh Hefner”

The Mystery Coke Machine

In Seattle, there is a haunted soda machine. At least that’s what some people claim, because in the 15+ years it has stood on a sidewalk in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, unprotected from the elements – and let’s face it, in Seattle there are a lot of elements – nobody has ever seen it filled orContinue reading “The Mystery Coke Machine”

The Naked Truth About Capitol Hill

It’s hard to concentrate on a slice of pizza when a group of 30 or so naked bike riders goes pedaling by your table. When that happens, you’re faced with an awkward decision: take another bite and pretend that it’s perfectly natural to see a whole bunch of people go perfectly au naturel in theContinue reading “The Naked Truth About Capitol Hill”
