Flag Football Playoff Game Tonight

Tonight is the semi-final playoff game for the Screamin’ Eagles. In the several seasons I have been on the team, we have never made it past the semi-finals, though we get to that game regularly. Our flag football team has had a decent season, but we picked up a former pro basketball player who is now our star and haven’t lost when he plays.… read more “Flag Football Playoff Game Tonight”

OCB: Factoria Old Country Buffet

Today was “Seafood Friday” at the Old Country Buffet in Factoria, so B and Sae and I hit it up. “Seafood Friday” meant that they were serving clam chowder AND “Baked Fish”. No specification on what exactly the “Baked Fish” was, but my guess is herring.

I’m Old

Plato and I somehow ended up at a college party tonight and I found myself talking to a girl in attendance. She asked when I graduated; I said “College 2006”. She looked at me funny and said “I graduated high school in 2007”. Ouch.

Bellevue’s Lincoln Square

Used to going out to “areas” of town to find bars like Capitol Hill, Fremont or Belltown, Nick and I tried to do the same thing in Bellevue. After driving around looking for awhile (and making a side trip through the millionaire mansions on Medina), we ended up at Lincoln Square. Lincoln Square is basically the entertainment center for downtown Bellevue and reflects Bellevue’s character or lack thereof quite well.… read more “Bellevue’s Lincoln Square”
