New Phone

So I ran out of time for my Blog Anniversary post, too much baseball work in the way. I'll still post it when I get back from my backpacking outing, but it'll be anti-climatic. I know you have all been at the edge of your seats since I announced it.

I got a new phone and new phone number. I'll be sending emails and such with all the details. I took a couple pics with my camera. One of me at the "library" and one of Donny. Now that I see the pic up close, looks like a stain on the chair. Bad Donny!

Mariners Monday

So Mayor Greg Nickels declared Monday, August 27, 2007, as "Mariner Monday". Here's an article about it from the Puget Sound Business Journal:

To support one of the most important homestands in recent Seattle Mariner history, Mayor Greg Nickels has proclaimed Monday, Aug. 27 as "Mariner Monday."

The Mariners, currently second in the American League West division, open a three-day homestand against the division-leading Los Angeles Angels in a series with postseason implications.

On "Mariners Monday," team officials are urging Seattle residents to wear Mariner caps, jerseys and T-shirts, as well as Mariner blue items, to work and school.

"We'd love to see a sold-out Safeco Field filled with Mariners Blue for that crucial three-game series with the Angels and give the Mariners a true home-field advantage," said Chuck Armstrong, Mariners president and COO, in a statement.

All I got to say to that is Bah! I prepared for today and the entire series (you bet I am going to at least one of the games this week!) with my red Angels gear. I really do like the Mariners, but those guys must know where their place is, which isn't in first. I wish them the best of luck in the wild card race.

And killing two birds with one stone (so violent), here's a pic of the niece for the month. It's Alaura, but I have her up again for obvious reasons. Her Dad done learned her right!

Voter Pamphlet

It’s voter pamphlet time! In California it wasn’t a big deal, but I have found the King County pamphlet quite entertaining. I can always count on some assortment of freaks running for office. I suppose that happens when you don’t see the sun. However, they must have had some success at the mental clinic since the last pamphlet, because there were only two nutzoids this time around.

First is Goodspaceguy Nelson, running for a seat on the Seattle city council. He was in last November’s election for the United States Senate, so he’s obviously on a mission to get his ideas out. He’s a sci-fi fan and he refers to Earth as Spaceship Earth. I like sci-fi, though I wouldn’t consider myself a fan, but the whole Spaceship Earth thing kind of scares me. Don’t believe me, check out the link to his page
I suppose he makes some good points in his King County message (not the Senate one, he is 80% freak here), and he’s a libertarian, but the name and the references ('sheeple' for people)… I try to tell my friends libertarians are normal, but I really need you libertarians to help out by actually being that.

Next is Edwin B Fruit, running for the director’s position in the Seattle School District no. 1. This is what Edwin had to say in his statement. You know, where you say what you are going to do and why you are the best candidate for the position:

As a candidate of the Socialist Workers Party I present a working-class alternative to the Democrats and Republicans.
Workers face an unrelenting offensive by profit-driven employers who are driving down conditions of life and work and seeking to undermine solidarity among working people.
The imperialist wars from Iraq to Afghanistan and all theaters of the “war on terror” – are an extension of these assaults on the living standards of workers here.
The resistance today by working people to these assaults – shown by the May Day mass mobilizations for legalization of immigrants in the last two years – points the road forward: rely on our collective power and organize independently of the capitalist parties to advance the interests of toilers worldwide. I invite you to get involved with the Socialist Workers Party campaign. Visit the Socialist Workers Party campaign newspaper at

That’s great Mr. Fruit, just what the school needs! By the way, how about changing the last name to Nut?

Don't mix the S and P

TCM: So where is this new kind of post you promised us today on the 2nd Anniversary of your blog?

Carrie: It's coming...but how about we call it blog anniversary weekend?

More multiple personality evidence:

...what a meaningless word in Carrie's world. But seriously folks, I'm going to upload the promised pics and do something a little different for my 2 year blog anniversary on Thursday. Yep, 2 years and I still haven't given my blog any particular focus or personality (unless you consider multiple personalities a personality), but hey I warned you it was lame and may remain lame. Personally, I think it's awesome.

Copying my awesome friend Sariah, who always puts pictures up on her post, here is a pic of Will and I at a Mariners game two weeks ago. My shirt was actually pink, but we sat up so high it became the color you see. J/K, I'm an Angels fan (but I do support the M's when they play other teams) and I was just showing some love for my guys. Unfortunatley they lost, but they tied it up with 3 runs in the 9th and forced 3 more innings. Ha, ha to all you who left in the 8th thinking Seattle had won. Okay, maybe they still beat Anaheim, but not as soundly as you thought. See what I mean about the multiple personalities.

Temp Post

So, I still haven't done the wedding, honeymoon post and it is now past our one month anniversary. I figure if I get a few things out that will be progress. Honestly though, I don't care for most of the wedding pictures. Either I'll look good in it or Will will, we don't seem to have any where we both do. Oh well, that gives Summer some work. So here is a sneak preview...
