Sorry if I haven't visited everyone's blogs in the last couple of days, but one of my oldest and dearest friends from high school was in town! He has to be in Portland next week for a conference and came up to Seattle so that we could hang out and explore the city.
I've been here for 11 years and had only been to Seattle a handful of times: Seattle Art Museum once, 1 Mariners game, twice to leave my car overnight to take the ferry to Canada, once to pick up and drop off Michelle at her hotel when she was in town briefly, and once to register with a temp agency. I'd been meaning to go up there and do the touristy stuff, but just never got motivated to do it, and it's only 37 miles away. I'm eternally grateful to Joe for not only coming out here to visit me, but for also letting me drag him around doing kitschy touristy stuff.
