Currently…

Watching :: Here’s Lucy reruns on Hulu, The Newsroom, Breaking Bad and eagerly awaiting the return of Sons of Anarchy in September!

Drooling over :: Michael and I are ready to make this delicious zucchini pasta tomorrow! Recipe here!

The latest Kidrobot Dunny Series 2012 has been out for a bit and I have been on the hunt for the Junko Mizuno dunny (clear with wavy ‘hair’ and pretty designs). While searching the interwebs, I noticed a few characters from a Kidrobot mini series that existed in 2009. I’ll peruse ebay and see if I can score some on the cheap. Mizuno is one of my favorite Kidrobot artists along with Tara McPherson, Koralie, SupaKitch, Frank Kozik and a slew of others.

Excited about :: Taco Tuesday at The Tin Hat is today. $0.69 tacos and cheap draft beer is a good way to spend a Tuesday night! But shhhh, don’t tell anyone…it gets crowded.

My new ’78 Flying Dutchman moped! Her name is Lucy. She makes me smile so I appropriately named her after Lucille Ball. Anyone who knows me would not be surprised by this.

Visiting Texas next week. Specifically seeing family and old friends and checking out the old stomping grounds. If time permits (since I am there for work) I’d like to hit up some old favorites; Meddlesome Moth and Good Records in Dallas, Rahr Brewery and maybe more ink by Justin in Fort Worth and perhaps some late night shenanigans at Rubber Gloves or Hailey’s in Denton.

Worried about :: Visiting Texas…because of the crazy heat. I’ve grown accustomed to living in a city that doesn’t exceed 80 degrees. Bands are smart not to tour in Texas in late August which is why there seems to be nothing going on music-wise in the area.

Listening to :: (tonight anyways…) Gusgus, Erlend Oye, Why?, Of Monsters and Men, First Aid Kit and KEXP streaming.

Drinking :: Unsweetened Arnold Palmers and Session Lager. All this time I thought Session and Red Stripe were the same. Doh!

I love Seattle: Bicycling to Redhook Brewery

Bicycling to Redhook Brewery in Woodinville from Seattle is one of those rites of passages to becoming a Seattleite. The trip is anywhere from 20-30 miles round trip, depending where you start and end on the Burke Gilman Trail. It is an enjoyable ride with people watching and pretty landscapes along the way. We have gone the last two summers and had a good day riding, eating, taking part in the $2 brewery tour, and riding back home. This is a must do in the summertime so grab a bicycle and go! Here are some photos from our last two trips.
