Road Trip – Day 8

There’s a friend of mine, Apple, who’s living in Seattle these days.   I haven’t seen him in a while, and it’s been even longer since I got to really spend any time with him.   It was really nice to be able to chill, just the two of us.  And even though I love my family, it was also nice to take a break from them.   So, I headed down to Seattle for a night out on the town. 

We started out at an old haunt of Go Jimmy Go, The Knarr.   This place was a dive.  Really.   It’s sort of in the university district, but it’s not the type of place I could imagine Suzy College hanging out.   After a pitcher of beer and some pizza, we decided to put the car to bed, and stick to the area near Apple’s apartment.   

Our first stop was an Irish bar.   We ordered another pitcher, and were just goofing off and watching a bit of the baseball highlights, when we realized that we had stumbled into a comedy show.    I don’t want to go into too much on the show, but let’s just say that we left before it was over.   

On our way to our next destination, Apple and I started talking about our respective successes and failures in the romantic arena.  We had both come to the conclusion one evening long ago that Love sucks.   Actually, I think what we had said was “Fuck Love.”    

So, here we were at this bar, both of us kind of feeling low, and we decided it was time to throw the towel in.  We caught a cab on the way back, picked up some Chinese food, and settled in the apartment to watch some cartoons.   We passed out pretty soon there after.

In the morning, we went for a little bit of a sight seeing drive to West Seattle.   It’s a great spot for a great view of the Seattle skyline.    When we had seen a bit, we headed back for left over Chinese and Big Lebowski for breakfast.   Then I got a phone call summoning me back to the parents’ place to take Momser and my aunt shopping.

I took quite a few pictures of the evening and morning in Seattle.   Click to enlarge.
