The World is on Fire


Can you see Half Dome?

There are no fires in Yosemite at the moment, but the rest of California is ablaze and the smoke is blowing east and ruining the view. I'd be pretty pissed if I flew here from Japan or some other country where they don't speak 'Merican and I couldn't see El Cap or John Muir because 30 million Californians collectively decided to each light up a cigarette.

In more important news...I went to a wedding this weekend. It was awesome. Lots of dancing, drinking, and merriment had by all. Next morning woke up early (thanks to Peter's coaxing) and headed to Ft. Ross for some sleepy beach bouldering.

Arrived back in the Valley Tuesday night and went straight to the my project, the roof at Le Conte. I really want to do "Goldmund" and "Narcissus" in the summer. I could hardly touch the crux move this past fall and now I've climbed through the crux into where the problems split into their respective finishes. Just need to get someone out there to spot me on the top out....anyone takers? Night sessions till 3am rule, trust me.

i'm relieved you didn't bust into sarah mclaughlin lyrics after the title... which i wouldn't know anything about... umm err..yeah..so... DEATH METAL ALWAYS!

maybe the asian tourists woulda been psyched for the consolation prize of that dried up sea slug looking thing on the beach... which i've seen in core asian markets [not in asia], so by steriotypical association you KNOW all of thems tourists gotta love thems dried things.

SEA SLUG SNACK ATTACH, BISHES!



on the otherhand, i wisely chose the heap of ginger cookies w/ my morning coffee. you?

well Justin is a sensitive guy, but I think titling his blog after a Sarah McLaughlin song might, just might, be a hint of something more?

3am is about the time I wake up. If you could push it to 5am I might be in.

Normally I don't think too much about my posts, but after Sock Hands I don't think that I can compete.

By the way, Shannon is calling you gay.

Justin said...

I drink tea in the morning not coffee. I believe that might answer several of the questions above.

Kevin said...

He also proudly calls himself princess, wears tight pink girl pants and has grabbed my ass countless times when not climbing. He's so gay that he can't be gay.

sock hands said...

bears are level 9 homophobes, which explains the princess' occupational proficiency.

i heard that he doesn't even need to carry along his mini white rhinestone keyboard anymore when chasing em.

word! i smell promotion.
