so we had a lot of interesting moments on this trip and i think those are the ones i'd like to go into. i'll begin with the beginning.
The drive to sam's:
took the 101 to the 1 (through big sur) back to the 101... beautiful drive, but lots and lots and lots of road.
tawnia's a peeing machine.
tawnia loves her andy!
o yeah, i unknowingly took many detours trying to find some of the restrooms that were needed so badly.
San Fran, CA:
to get this beatnik bookstore i wanted to visit so badly, we walked through an adult "bookstore", xxx, girls girls girls area of north beach, the only really frightening thing was that a few of these sex shops didn't have doors, so it would be like 'to your right, cars; in front of you, sidewalk; and to your left, o right penises, who would've expected that. (i know what your thinking, but i just thought that most places had doors, you know)
The train ride to Seattle:
there was a man in our car who didn't now how to lower his voice to tell someone that he had to get off the phone because there were people trying to sleep.
the next day, tawnia discovered the lady she had to sit next to relaxing with her feet on tawnia's pillow, ew.
tawnia and i started knitting our scarves.
couldn't figure out the numbering of the rooms at the Edgewater.. it was near 2 am and we were exhausted.
we realized that the restrooms at Pike's Place did not have full height doors. very easy to view into (in both the men's and women's bathrooms.)
i bartered with someone for the first time... sort of... well he bartered with me, but still.
i bought a glass corn on the cob for my friend for graduation.
we unfortunately discovered that the man in the car in front of us on the ferry had a bad porn addiction.
also on the ferry, While trying to help the world by YABing Sam was approached by an uptight monkey of a man, and who then procedded to act like an ass, watching us for most of the ferry ride, so i decided to stare at him for a little bit.
tawnia finished her scarf.
the jaccuzi at the hotel was boiling pot of water and the pool only 5' deep. it was amusing.
wandered downtown vancouver at 1:30 am and got offered pot. o and yeah, we were carrying peonies and pillows, we looked like helpless fools, so i hid the flowers by the bus depot.
i hailed a cab for the FIRST time in my life. i know it sounds weird, but i was so excited when that cabby immediately pulled over.
The train ride to San Fran:
i was seated next to a terribly drunk man, who was asked to stop drinking w/in the first two or three hours of the train ride. he laughed to himself alot and was generally unpleasant and kept looking at sam.
i finished knitting my scarf, YAY!
(i had train legs the whole next day)
The drive home:
took the 5 all the way home, shorter but smellier too, still a nice drive.
tawnia wasn't as much of a peeing machine... until the end, that is.
tawnia LOVES her andy!
tawnia left her phone in my car and i left my phone at my mom's house.
(got home by 10:30... had to work from 8-4:45 the next day.)
all in all... it was pretty good trip with lots of beautiful and interesting things.
until later, Kevin
