I’m sorry Jeni… I said that the weather in Seattle was always great and comfortable, and then the weekend Jeni moves up here, we have a record heat wave. Of course, since Seattle “never gets that hot,” people here [read: my apartment complex] have no air conditioning. My roommate tried to buy a fan today, but apparently all the places he stopped were already sold out. We went to play racquetball this evening. It was a good time, except for the fact that it was definitely over 100° in the court. Yuck.
In other news, Jeni & I still managed to tour around Seattle a bit this weekend. We checked out REI, Fremont (including the troll, see pic from my cell phone below), and Gasworks Park yesterday. Then today I showed off the Microsoft campus, and we went to the Factoria mall and Frys. I’d never been in a Fry’s until today, and let me just say: it was cool. Not as cool as the fact that Jeni lives right down in Renton now, but pretty cool. Speaking of which, we also drove past Jeni’s house, down near the Sam’s Club, Walmart and Starbucks. It looks good from the outside, but it might’ve been a bit weird for me to be there when she was moving in, so I’ll have to visit at a later date.
Schedule for the remainder of the summer:
This week: Lauren comes to visit on Thursday. Saturday & Sunday Lauren, Jeni & I are going up to Vancouver.
Next week: a week of work, with an as-of-yet undetermined weekend.
Week after that: My parents come to visit, maybe we’ll go somewhere on the weekend.
Week after that: My parents go home, I work for a week, and I go home.
I can’t believe the summer went by so fast…
[time to see what we have time to see…]
