hanging on to one post…

Hanging on to one post per month just barely — the weather is wonderful out here in Seattle. Thanks to the few folks who mentioned I’d dropped off the face of the web and were wondering why how, always nice to hear from visitors. In fact, one motivation for posting is that my resolve to avoid friendster has finally crumbled. One too many people mentioned it as a way they were getting information out and I’m giving it a try. It reminds me of the old six degrees from a few years back which was a similar network based social system. The amusing things about these systems is the competitive spirit that arises between members and their respective friend connections. Feel free to jump on and find me listed by email as fork at to help me test it out.

Corinne and I finally picked up a couch from a ‘downsizing’ escape factory making the upstairs quite a bit more social. The days of sitting round the floor are over for now.

The second mike of the household should be arriving for the summer in just a few days as a great addition to our house and no less than two turntables bonus! Needless to say, I can’t wait. I picked up a billie holliday record from the daily pike place rummage a few days back and have a renewed motivation to find new picks.

We’re off tonight to wander the streets of capitol hill during the pride week festivities.

[ meanwhile, i continue to be distracted and excited thinking about the possibilities of attending world cup 2006 – see you there ]

this weekend in issaquah with local paragliders, the tiger mountain fly-in. Get there early as I hear last year there were /many/ more looking to fly tandem than time allowed.

speakers at work are keeping me happy. I speak with between 50 and 80 folks from 14 western states on a daily basis about their families, passtimes, philosophies, and the weather. Telephone services seem to come up frequently as something they love to chat about, but I suppose that is nothing new in this day in age.
