What an awesome weekend (we had yesterday off)â€¦hell, all of last week was great! The highlight was the fact that my parents were in town, and my brother, since he is stationed over in Bremerton, was able to come in during the weekend and we all were able to hang out. Plus it was my wifeâ€™s birthday this weekendâ€¦so on Saturday night we hit the Space Needle for dinner. I love dinner thereâ€¦we did this the last time my parents came to town, so I am digging this tradition. The view of course is spectacular, yes I used the word spectacularâ€¦thatâ€™s the only time I have used that word, because it applies! The dinner was also spectacularâ€¦I had the Ahi Tuna, so damn good! Seriously if you want to show someone a good night with a great mealâ€¦take em to the Needle! Here we are enjoying my wifeâ€™s great day!
On the way down the elevator in the needle we saw the Dale Chihuly Garden & Glass exhibit that was just built in the Seattle Center. I guess it officially opened yesterdayâ€¦I need to check this out. I never thought I would care about a blown glass exhibit, but just seeing it from above makes me realize how awesome this will be to see. I took a picture outside of itâ€¦damn Daleâ€¦you blow good glass!!!!
After we had dinnerâ€¦we took our parents and family to Capitol Hillâ€¦to go damncing at neighbors of course! OK, not reallyâ€¦we took them to Molly Moonâ€™s to get Ice Cream! Have you ever tried Molly Moonâ€™s? Itâ€™s homemade icecream, and the best ice cream you will ever haveâ€¦seriously, itâ€™s that good. There is usually a line outside of itâ€¦and our family all agreed after eating itâ€¦itâ€™s worth the wait! I had my usualâ€¦a waffle cone with a scoop of vanilla bean and a scoop of salted caramel! Itâ€™s so good that last night after dropping off my parents at the airportâ€¦my wife and I hit up Molly Moonâ€™s again for more ice cream awesomeness.
Earlier in the day we went to Nike Town, and I finally got to see the new Hawks jerseyâ€™s, as they were on display! Seeing these jerseyâ€™s in person makes me want them even more! They are sweet looking! Iâ€™m on the fence if I want a red Bryant #79 or a Bruuuuce Irvin #51â€¦If Bruce never responds to one of my tweetsâ€¦my loyalty will go with big Red! Check out the sweet display at Nike Townâ€¦you can see the new uniâ€™s:
Yesterday was also awesome because the Devils tied up the series against the Rangerâ€™s in the Eastern Conference finalsâ€¦which made me, and the young version of me a happy camper! This pic is probably from the mid to late 80â€™sâ€¦wow!!!
While my parents were in town, we also did some tourist stuffâ€¦like going to Pike Place for them to check out the marketâ€¦and I did something I have never seen in the 14 or 15 years living hereâ€¦and I have been literally feet from it, but never saw itâ€¦the gum wall! Talk about gross, but cool!
One person asked me on Facebook what it smelled likeâ€¦it didnâ€™t smell like gumâ€¦more like urineâ€¦afterall it is in an alley!!!
Kristen Stewart says her life has been easy so far. Too easyâ€¦to the point where she would appreciate it if someone would screw her over, just to make it interesting. In the new issue of "Elle" magazine, she says, "Maybe because my life is so perfect, when I see the other side of life, it just seems like, almost like I want . . . You can learn so much from bad things. I feel boring. I feel like,' Why is everything so easy for me?' I can't wait for something crazy to [effing] happen to me. Just life. I want someone to [eff] me over! Do you know what I mean?"
I like what one texter said about this:
What does that chick mean never been screwed over? Didn't they make her watch twilight?
Kristen Stewart recently said that she wants someone to "Eff her over"...based on this...when have you been screwed over? When have you screwed someone over? Here are some of the texts we receivedâ€¦

Â So last week before we left for a mini vacationâ€¦we reported the sad news that Donna Summers diedâ€¦this one hit me for the oddest reason, as I admitted that Donna Summer was my first â€śgirlfriendâ€ťâ€¦you knowâ€¦the first person to inspire some â€śalone timeâ€ť. BJ was shocked that was my tribute to the queen of disco, but câ€™monâ€¦she was a sexy Bad Girl after all!!!! A texter suggested a great topic idea because of this:
Theres a topic. Who was your first "girlfriendâ€ť
Here are some ofÂ the texts we received:

Today's Intern Challenge features Tahiti Steve trying to conquer the 7 Alarm Challenge at the Wingdome in Seattle!Â This led to a bunch of texts from people that tried the 7 Deadly Wings Challenge:
I've done it twice. It's ridiculous, but the trick is to keep going, use chapstick before you start, keep it off your lips if possible and feel the pain later. :)
I had dreams I was burning alive after I did that challenge!
Did the 7 wings in 5 minutes.
I've been eating at the Wing Dome in Kent for the last couple weeks. I enjoy the #6 heat wings. Tried one #7 and it was a mistake. C'mon ice cream! PainterguyD
