09/13/2005: "Matt can Post!"Listening to: Squarepusher - Ultravisitor
Current mood: penitent
Wow, so that was almost a month then? Huh. Alright well, here's for the obligatory apology/excuse portion of the post. The main thing about the last month was that I was working. A lot. And by a lot I mean a-bloody-lot. I don't really know when I've ever been as stressed about work. Lucikly Labor Day weekend came along and Lynnea and I went on a short little anniversary trip over to the coast, which did a really good job of destressing me. And then sometime last week work completely dried up, so I'm back to normal now.
For our trip, we went to Coos Bay, in which very little exists worth going to aside from a surprisingly good German bistro (actually there are supposed to be some other good places there but we just ate at the bistro). Really the whole of the Oregon coast is a portrait of desolation, but that area exemplifies it more than other places. For example, just up the road from Coos Bay is a town called North Bend... if you ever wanted to live somewhere post-apocalypic, move to North Bend. It's actually so desolate that it's kinda cool. It looks like a ghost town even though there are actually people who live there. I guess you could say it's a real horror movie backdrop of a town. And as a bonus there's a really cool used/rare bookshop that we only got to spend about 5 minutes in. But I digress.
Anyway, our trip to the coast was hardly the only thing that happened since I last posted. We went to Lassen park with my parents back in August, and attended the wedding of Nick and his childe bride on the way back from the coast, and probably did a whole lot of other stuff happened that I don't remember. But what's the point of living in the past? Plus I don't want to be bothered with writing about it.
Speaking of not being bothered to write I think that's about it for this post, but I do have another Alpha Flight (which finally got so bad I couldn't keep reading) snippet I've been saving for a little while now:
Yeah Guardian, I think we've all tried that excuse to get out of showering after gym class...
