Well, we’ve reached 0 on the countdown (and seen it mysteriously reset itself back to 28).
The End as I’ve cryptically called was the end of July… and the end of both Todd and Kyle’s time here in Pasadena. Todd’s moving south to the San Diego area to go manage a new club and Kyle is relocating to Seattle. In fact, I’m up here right now.
The trip has been pretty uneventful so far. We rode up in a Dodge minivan that drove pretty well and was able to hold all Kyle’s stuff. We stayed in San Francisco in a Marriott one night and at Kyle’s friend’s place just outside of Eugene. Did I say uneventful? I meant one event. We had pizza for us in the first 30 minutes that we got there. I went to wash my hands, decided to rinse my face, and managed to get the front of my shorts wet. I ended up “checking voicemail” for about 10 minutes before I finally came out. And apparently (as I found out a few days later) the lock on Karen’s bathroom doesn’t work that well. So if you wait til Kyle takes Karen to work and make sure the roommate is asleep before you use the bathroom, you probably 1. Make sure the roommate is actually asleep and 2. you should know the bathroom lock doesn’t work on the first try. I’m just giving you fair warning.
Kyle’s girlfriend has a pretty cool apartment that overlooks the Puget Sound and is right up the street from the Space Needle. We got in yesterday afternoon and got all the boxes and furniture in the apartment. Today’s for goofing around Seattle and then back to sunny and hot Southern California.
