too many balls/shaft jokes for one day

can anyone teach me how to play golf? for free? and give me free golf clubs? i tried playing today and i really sucked. first time, yeah, but half the dudes there were golfing with Blood Alcohol Contents of like .7 and were still hitting that damn ball further and straighter than i was.

a lot of stupid stuff happens in a week.

last week my little truck died.

so, i spent a couple of days last week commuting to work from my parents house because i was driving their van.

one day i was driving home, and i was in Tacoma, and I accidentally (I swear) cut off two dudes in a mini van. no big deal, they just passed me, got in front of me, forced me to a stop in THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY and tried to kick my ass. at first they were just standing outside my car telling me to get out so they could kick my ass-

then they started trying to break my windows with their bare hands- which they would know wasn't very effective if they have ever seen karate kid part II

keep in mind there is pretty heavy traffic all around us so i couldn't back up or escape. no big deal, i called 911 cause i'm a total wuss. i could have taken the old man:
but his son (or grandson i guess) had a good 20 pounds on me, oh yeah and we were in the middle of the road.

they ran away when i started describing their vehicle and giving their licence plate number to the police (ha! pussies!)....i don't know if they ever got caught...

the happy ending is that they didn't break the windows.

the sad ending is that my truck is no longer with us.

the other happy ending is that i got a new one. i think ashleigh thinks it looks gay.

that's nothing, you should hear me play piano!

okay, continuation of my good weekend:

sunday i was invited to selebrate seis de mayo with stephanie and the farrars. lots of good food and stuff, and i got way grilled by her dad- about rob. don't worry rob, i was very discrete, and when i got to the tough spots i just fell back on the old "hmmm, i don't remember"

sunday night i went to see morrissey. i love him. read more about the show on gentle tyrants.

unfortunately, i didn't take pictures of either.

i do however, have pictures of a birthday party i once had. it was sesame street themed, and my dad came dressed as cookie monster. i'm pretty sure he terrified me.

Nothing Says Adventure Like Canada

Saturday I went to Vancouver. It looks like this:

While i was there i wanted to see explosions in the sky, but according to the dude at the record store where they sold tickets they were "sold oot". I showed up anyway at the croatian cultural center and it turned out there was plenty of room for me. It was excellent.

They looked like this:

Other things i did in Canada:

i waited in the longest line of cars ever to cross the border

i pushed my little truck to speeds of over 100 km/hr

i soreley over estimated the exchange rate and got far more canadian cash from the atm than i needed

i used what was leftover of that cash to put 25 or so "litres" of "petrol" in my car

i walked around the city a lot, but its not really interesting to relate. you would have had to have been there.

two things i have discovered:

1. - i am lousy at taking pictures of interesting things in my life.

2. - i am boring, and thus have nothing to really take pictures of anyway that aren't already on cindy's blog or someone else's.

SO, until i can get myself together and start having an interesting life, then taking pictures of it - this is a nostalgia blog.

my current project is for mothers day i am putting my mom's shoeboxes of negatives and misplaced photos onto digital cd's. not only am i a kickass son for doing this, but it provides me with plenty of nostalgic material to share when nothing else is going on.

here's one i don't remember:

mom and dad, circa the summer of '79.
