  2. It's actually cooled down quite a bit here in Portland...
     

  3. It's beginning to cool here too. I actually snowmobile-d from Vashon to West Seattle like an hour ago! Snow removal is expected to be complete early tomorrow morning, with full opening to traffic scheduled for noon. :p
     
  4. ^^ Roo, LMAO!

    Record breaking 97 degrees in the Seattle area today!!!

    OK, the minute I even THINK about *****ing about the heat (no AC in this house), I remember back when we had no power in December for 5 days and it got down to 45 in the house and it was like trying to sleep in a fridge, lol.

    SO...let's stay cool and savor summer!
     
  5. Hey, I am NOT kidding, dood! I'm tellin' you, those West Seattle bridge trolls are experts at frozen slug removal! I was thinkin of paddling my kayak out on Lake Union today but I fear that with the ice melting I could meet up with some hungry orcas.... or even worse, Dale Chihuly... That eyepatch freaks me out.... :p


    Roo,
    Delirious from da warm temps:
    I propose we commandeer the Ballard Locks for our own swimming pool, ya game? The only condition is that JOHN CURLEY is NOT INVITED :p :sweatdrop:
     
  6. NO JOHN CURLEY....I'm so there! I used to live in Magnolia and my view was the Ballard Locks! :okay:It rocked. I'm ready to dive in, man....

    I'm delirious too. I am rehydrating after playing hockey tonight...at least it was cool in the rink!
     
  7. Rumor in the 'hood is that JC was filmed recently hiding in the bushes at the Aurora Ave Travelodge... begging random people "please call me!"..... it is insinuated that said he was upset at being spurned by Jim Foreman... but no one really knows the truth... except maybe Jean Enerson....

    :p
     
  8. ROFLMAO and PMP!! if anyone was on assignment reporting it, it'd be Foreman alright...and Jean back to you in the studio ;)
     
  9. Well you've heard about the skeleton in JE's closet haven't you? It is rumored that the Fremont Troll was once her 'secret love' :roflmfao:
     
  10. :upsidedown::upsidedown::lol:
     
  11. I have it on good authority that the Fremont troll drinks mojitos made from the tears of solstice parade participants who were mocked for looking absolutely HORRIFYING naked. (The body paint didn't help). Steve Poole is his fave drinking buddy.


    :greengrin:
     
  12. Not Connie Thompson? I saw her at wild ginger once, lol.
     
  13. We saw Jim Foreman at Salty's once too... that has been a running joke in our house ever since....

    :roflmfao:
     
  14. ^^ OMG...the way you wrote that, too funny, I'm dying here.
