Happy Birthday Me!

Today. Was. Awesome.

Morgan and I (actually got enough sleep and still) were able to get up before 9am, get ready, get coffee and get on the road to Seattle. We started the day off with the Underground Tour, which was creepy and oh-so awesome! We both dig exploring historical sites, so this was great.

Wandered around Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market, then down to the waterfront. Had lunch at El Puerco Lloron, this hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant that I've been eyeing for years. The food there is amazing. So much time wasted! It started to pour down rain so we decided to make our way back North.

Stopped at the Best Buy at Northgate. I LOVE this store! It has a ENORMOUS music section! Morgan bought me a new capo and strings. I stumped the salesperson by asking for a demonstration of a loop pedal that he happened to know nothing about. That was fun, he was trying his best. I'm sure we'll be back there soon to take advantage of his discount.

Had dinner in Lynnwood at ye olde Spaghetti Factory. Spumoni ice cream is something else. All day I had been trying to convice Morgan to watch Star Trek, and he finally gave in. We headed to the Loews Theater to find that they weren't even showing it. F**kers. haha It ended up being pretty late when we got home, so the plan is to catch it on Thursday night. We better...been waiting forever for this stupid movie.

Awesome birthday!

This is one of the skylights for the Seattle Underground. Up top, they look like grids of purple glass. Neat!
