It's 1:15 in the morning and my ass is on fire

I wish I didn't top off the burritoe lunch and the ham sandwich/ceasar salad dinner with a Luke warm Duck dog. My ass is breathing out flames. It's hard to resist a duck dog when it's sitting in a box resting on a tractor inside a shed. So my crew is made up of myself and three teenagers who leave to go get stoned for pretty much the entire shift. So I'm the only one who's around to really empty the garbage cans. I get bored and so I constantly walk around Hayward Field hoping to find a can that needs to be emptied. Needless to say, some of the volunteers keep laughing at me for always carrying a trash bag to the trash area. They think I'm a hard worker and a clean freak. I've got them fooled on both fronts. I just play a hard working clean freak in public. I saw Jordan Kent, Jackie Joyner Kersey, some other person and yep, from the balcony of the Bowerman building, Phil Knight. He has a moustache. It looks good. I told him I weeded his parking space at the football stadium lastautumn. He told me to keep my distance and shave the pubic hair off my face.

it's 1:43 in the morning

It's 1:43 in the morning and I just walked back from Hayward field where I was on garbage detail for 8 hours for the world junior championships. Those young athletes make us look weak and out-of-shape. And they're super tall. They're legs are pretty much the length of me. I don't have much else to say except that I wouldn't' recommend eating pizza with pasta salad. Eat a regular salad. Yeah, that's right. I got a free meal at work. I medaled dinner. It's one of the perks of garbage detail. That was awesome. I wrote this post on the kitchen floor on my phone. That's awesome too. Technology.

7/11 - Free Slurpees

Yup, that's right. My first free slurpees. Got two on Fri with Dyno-M's son. But let me rewind about a month...

On 6/11, I improvised, and drove down to Eugene and met-up with 1st Class at Burt's place. Actually ended up meeting Burt & Liz. Very nice people. Next day took in the view from Skinner's Butte, lost in tennis, and went to Halsey. Ended up crashing at Papa V's place while he and his family were chilling on the beaches of Greece...

Then on 6/25 I drove down to Portland and picked up 1st Class at the Greyhound station. Talk about first class travel! We then hung out and painted the interior of my place. We also swigged a lot. Watched a lot of world cup soccer and 1st Class had a lot of photography work. We didn't play much tennis. We only hit one day, and then I beat his sorry-ass the next time. That was a lot of fun. Watched the movie the Gambler. This visit was what I'd call fascinating. Learned a lot about 1st Class that I didn't know before. Mostly, what I'd call 1st Class logic. He certainly has a system to his way of thinking...

Then it was back to Eugene. I ended up driving him back in Mrs. Ocean's car. Got a rock chip in the windshield that couldn't be repaired, had to be replaced. Once again crashed at Burt's and met Burt for a second time. Next morning, dropped off 1st Class at Skinner's Butte for a photo gig, and met-up with Papa V. Celebrated the 4th of July with his talented rapping daughter. Beat 1st Class in a game of CAT. That was a lot of fun. Ended up passing out before the fireworks...

Returned back to Seattle, and broke in the new yurt with a food club. Japanese food. Japanese beer. Pretty hot weather, and went for an evening stroll with Dyno-M and Gerald over the Dr. Jose Rizal bridge. Lots of fun...

Which brings me back to 7/11 and free slurpee day. Met-up with Dyno-M the next morning and drove out to Belfair to pick-up Dyno-M's girls from summer camp. Chilled out at the Bremerton ferry, while the kids enjoyed the huge naval water fountains. Really cool park. Then enjoyed probably my favorite ferry ride ever, back to Seattle. Can't fully explain why, but that was the most inspiring ferry ride for me...

Woke up this morning, and decided to tackle two long-standing car projects. Recharged my AC, and tore apart the passenger's side door. Literally. Removed the glass, and just waiting to get the parts that I need from Dyno-M's Amazon Prime. We ended up charging Dyno-M's AC partially, and polished off a Scotch-Ale growler from Lazy-Boy while watching Germany v. Argentina. Well that concludes my 2014 World Cup and also represents my summer so far.
