way better than green beer

March 17, 2010 was a big day for me, but it had nothing to do with St. Patrick.

12:00 pm grab a stand-by seat on flight to LAX.
2:30 pm land at LAX.
3:30 pm walk the strand at manhattan with tiffany.



5:30 pm brave LA traffic with emily: 20 miles in 95 minutes.
7:05 pm arrive at the viper room.
7:15 pm rock out to derek webb singing stockholm syndrome.



8:30 pm double-double animal style & fries with emily.
10:00 pm laugh, argue, reminisce, and watch mindless TV with matt, tiffany, kevin, colleen, rachel, and bryan.
2:00 am sleep.
4:45 am leave for airport.
6:00 am board plane, hope to sleep.
6:30 am accidentally have a two hour conversation about the prosperity gospel with seatmate.
9:00 am back home to my boys in seattle.

Thanks Mom, Chase, Jon, Emily, Tiffany, & Matt!

IN N OUT!!!! I'm moving out of Cali soon and it's truly one of the only things I'll miss.

Speaking of green and Seattle, have you ever heard of the Green Bean coffeehouse? I'm highly intrigued because I want to open an organization that runs like there's...thinking of visiting sometime just to go there and check it out.

Rachel -- yes, I know the Green Bean, sad news: it burned down a few months ago. They think it was a serial arsonist that hit a bunch of businesses in that area. It was so awful... they are (were) an awesome organization.

Kari -- exactly. :)

R -- OK I'm looking at the Green Bean website and it looks like they were able to rebuild... I hadn't heard that but I am so glad! I actually have a few connections to people involved w/ it, so let me know if you want me to hook you up at some point.
