  1. When you’re at Pike Place you have to go to the place where the dudes throw salmon and other random seafood over your heads…they sell it to restaurants and random people the buy seafood and it’s really awesome.

    And we had a theoretical bonfire on Guy Fawke’s day when we set the notecard on fire, when Memorial flooded πŸ™‚

  2. That “Surprised by Hope” by Wright is a great read, anything else about the book that made an impression of you?

  3. BOWLING IN CANADA!!!! I was talking to Rebekah the other day, and we talked about going to Canada, and I said if I do, I have to go bowling! Twice, if i remember correctly. Does that mean two different trips…?
