so one time a month ago...

Have i ever told you the story of the time i spent a weekend pushing magazines on holiday festival - going folk?


well, i'm not going to type it -- so read about it HERE or listen about it HERE (it is Episode 52).

If you clicked on the word "here" immediately following the phrase "listen about it", perhaps you remember the story i told about the really enthusiastic "DIY ME MUTHERFUCKER" dude.

well then really, listen about it HERE.

ANYWAYS, perhaps you are wondering what this dude looks like. I will give you a hint. Which one of these dudes pictured below is the biggest party animal?

If you guessed it was the one in green shoes with paint all over his tuxedo t-shirt, that would have been my guess too -- and i think we would be correct. This is the gentleman featured in the story i told on the podcast.

Now for my appeal:
does anybody know this guy? or know who he is? I am not kidding when i say that i would really like to hang out with him.

So, before we went to the strip club, and before half of us were arrested, we played a few rounds of whirly ball in honor of rob getting married.

Christopher is a video blog wizard, and you can watch the mayhem HERE.

So, with gentle rob getting married one of these upcoming days, there has been a lot of talk of bachelor parties being thrown around. All this talk naturally caused me to reminisce about a place that has played a part in my life for many years now- seattle's own, beloved Lusty Lady.

Now, i must confess i have never actually been inside the lusty lady (tee hee hee hee) - but her
clever marquees have been keeping me entertained on many a trip downtown since at least the fifth grade.

without further ado, i give you some of my favorite marquees as of late. Happy marriage, rob.

yeah, i can't possibly show them all......but there are many more, including some of the classics RIGHT HERE!!!!

Dude Flume (part II)

It has been one year since the creation of the legendary DUDE FLUME (for weight purposes).

we celebrated the anniversary by revisiting lagoon, and once again trying to overload the log flume ride with dude.

i would call it a success.

ashleigh wishes so bad that she was one of the dudes.

In an attempt to increase traffic on this blog and draw advertising revenue, i present a picture of lee's butt:

i also tried to take some movies during the rides, and i guess they are ok, but they are probably no fun for anyone to watch. I did think the bumper car video i made was kind of funny, but only with the right theme song playing:

here's to already looking forward to the Dude Flume III!!

San Xavier del Bac

This is what it looks like lately, while it is being cleaned!

really cool place. really sunny day. i am very squinty. Pictures!

This is the grotto where the virgin mary appeared! it's on a hill about 200 yards from the mission. she must have gotten lost or something:

so bright!

wild west weekend!

i decided to go all wild west last weekend and went on a desert road trip looking for wild west towns. i found a few, but only took pictures in two of them. deal with it.

photo disclaimer- i forgot to bring sunglasses, so in 90% of the pictures i am in, i am very squinty, or my eyes are closed. i'm not making faces. i swear.

Bisbee, AZ:

this was the better of the towns in my opinion. really nicely restored/maintained, with just enough stuff left in an abandoned state to make it feel like a touristy ghost town. the surrounding houses in the hills were awesome and we spent an hour or so driving around really narrow roads on the mountainside. totally awesome (no pictures of them, deal with it).

Tombstone, AZ:

tombstone was fun, but totally rediculous. I would like to say it was well restored, but i think it was less restored, more overrun by tourism. really it was like being at disneyland, or pioneer town at lagoon, but with a more violent history.

i didn't take this picture of the gunfight. we had missed the last public one, and didn't want to drop $20 to see one in a walled off OK Corral (i looked through a crack in the wall. it looks just like a normal corral). besides, i can wait until lavender days.

the courthouse was cool. it was probably the most authentic thing in the whole town. interesting fact: only 7 people were ever legally hanged at those gallows.

i also really liked boot hill.

death collage:

SLATER! NOOOOO! this must be what happened to him after "dancing with the stars":

hmmm. one of these people must have been playing hockey?

sexy competition

i know i don't stand a chance, but my ego compelled me into a contest i couldn't possibly win. dig it:



Round 2!



i never stood a chance!

"The Band's Visit"

"Do you like Chet Baker?"


This is one of those movies where everyone is really depressed and lonely and during the course of the film you come to believe the heroes will inspire those around them and instill a new sense of optimism and hope into the lives of the supporting characters.

SPOILER!!! At the end of the movie, everyone is still really depressed and lonely.

just like an old friend welcoming me back:

so san francisco is pretty much awesome, but everybody knows that already.

but nathaniel, haven't you been here enough times that it is getting hard to find interesting things to do?


um, girls playing football?

becca even taught me a few cheeleading moves. i am happy for an excuse to cop a thigh-feel (obviously).

So i'm not even a week into my resurrected blog and i am already out of material to put on it. i think this was a bad idea.
