Qué tristeza me da… Realmente es una gran pérdida. El único comentario que me sacó una sonrisa fue el man que sugirió que el viejo Joe sacara a Amy Winehouse a bailar salsa… Al menos ninguno de los dos sufre ya de nada.

Sad face. 😦

“Te fuiste a encontrar con TANIA, a formar tu REBELION a otra parte, te fuiste como EL CAMINANTE, ahora eres tú EL AUSENTE, viviste NOCHES DE ARREBOLES, te llevaste tu CARA DE PAYASO, AY PAPÁ .. PAPA… aunque LA NOCHE esté triste, serás siempre el CENTURIÓN DE LA NOCHE, porque FUE TU MIRADA la que se apagó, pero es ese recuerdo el que hace saber que TU VOLVERAS, volverás porque aquí se queda tu JoeSón…”

Gratitude

April 29, 2011

Take 90 seconds and consider how your words shape your world.  We can all use a reminder to be compassionate and to cultivate gratitude.

O sea, Rodolfo Burgos. Oye, de verdad canta idéntico, ¡es increíble!

To my grand delight, I saw a video of the REAL Shakira meeting Rodolfo/”Shakiro” – and two things struck me.

1. Shakira seems so normal and nice!

2. Wait, Shakira’s only like 5 feet tall, that guy looks teeny next to her!

Football WIN!

And I don’t even know anything about football!

T-Mobile Welcome Back

November 10, 2010

This has been flying all over the interwebz for days, but it makes me grin each and every time. And the sheer celebratory energy in all those harmonized voices makes me tear up, too. Well, only a little.

Bonus: Reactions from the public. I want to be an International Flight-Greeter! Think they are hiring at Sea-Tac?

Woo! It’s about time we got some sun for a change! I may even spend a bit of time reading outside on the deck…

F and I decided to just drive around for the remarkably-uncluttered holiday weekend. We headed north to the North Cascades Highway (20), which we’d never taken before. It’s typically closed for several months a year during the winter, so we decided to check it out. Plus, since it was supposed to be rainy and gross here in Seattle, and typically most points eastward are sunnier than they are in the Puget Sound, we figured it would be a bonus to boost our vitamin D at the same time! We did a rough loop all around the state, and 910 miles later, arrived home feeling as if we’d had a “real” vacation!

Here are some of the reasons we love Washington State:

Ladder Creek Falls, in Newhalem

Ladder Creek Falls

A cool tree along the nearby River Loop Trail – see the face?

Stunningly beautiful (and windy!) Diablo Lake:

The aforementioned wind makes the trees at the top of the overlook grow like this:

Washington Pass, and extraordinary views from 5,477 feet:

The cute Old-West-style town of Winthrop:

…with cowboy art…

…and murals, many of which just cracked us up, like this one:

Somewhere between Omak and Grand Coulee:

The Grand Coulee Dam, where they even had a little 4th of July festival:

From the highway, along Banks Lake–there were a bunch of folks out fishing and rock-climbing here:

800 foot-tall Steamboat Rock (also in Banks Lake):

Dry Falls, which would have been 10 times the size of Niagara Falls:

From the Lewis and Clark Highway near the Columbia River Gorge – check out Mt. Hood back there!

Hold out to the end: Sadly, he may be right…

This guy is my new role model! I can’t wait to read his book.

I have no idea what the backstory is for this video, and yes-it’s nearly nine minutes long. However, it’s surprisingly satisfying! The beginning is a surprise, and the last 10 seconds are the BEST.

Why I can’t belong to these guys instead of my actual family? I wish we had Wimpy’s in Seattle-I would eat there all the time just based on this ad. I especially love the girlie with the glasses!

Sure, the original is an incredible feat of cinematography, and sure the Sesame Street one made me giggle. But this version is way awesome! Check it out below:

Thanks to my dear F for this one!

Awww…

WOW. This is incredible! Really amazing video, and the octopus close-ups are outstanding (not to mention the bonus octopus song, which is my new favorite tune). Word on the street is that this guy was FREE-DIVING during this episode…

Is it creepy? Hot? Funny? Marketing genius? See for yourself. What do you think?

Lake Chelan weekend

February 22, 2010

We had a lovely weekend! The weather was perfect…

We saw deer…

And bighorn sheep…

Enjoyed some treats…

And relaxed here…

I love the Traveler’s pooch!

February 14, 2010

He’s just so darned cute…and worried…makes me think of myself (the worried part, of course!)! Nice choice of music, too.

February morning

February 9, 2010

This is the kind of video that makes me think it would be fun to live in Japan. This is from some kind of game show, and the challenge is to smoothly eat a slice of watermelon in such a way that the snowboarder taped to your face appears to be zooming back and forth on a half-pipe. Added bonus: Realistic sound effects!

Barbie, eat a sandwich!

Great song, and somehow transports me instantly back to my university days…
