  1. VanPool

    I got into a VanPool today. This is good because A) I don’t want to ride an hour each way on the bus; and B) I don’t want to pay $120/month in gas to drive in. The VanPool meets at the Greenlake Park and Ride and leaves promptly at 6:35am (6:34am …

  2. My Real First Day

    Monday was Memorial Day and I had the day off, which was kind of interesting because at Mines, we don’t get any days off. A three day weekend before my first real day was pretty cool. I was going to take the bus, but I decided to drive in because …

  3. Where’s Drake Collier?

    Narrating Boeing training videos! Long story short, I used to listen to Mr. Collier when he hosted the 9pm-1am slot on KIRO 710 back “in the day”. Note: This wasn’t posted until 6/1/2006. I needed to review it and didn’t have time until now.

  4. Action Alert: The Onions at SAAS

    The Onions, SAAS’s awesometastic vocal group is singing again tonight at the Arts Center. If you’re an alumni, you can get your ticket for the low low price of $4, which is actually pretty good considering adult tickets are $10 a pop. Like I said,…

  5. Getting to Work

    While I can’t (and by "can’t", I mean that I won’t…not that someone told me not to) tell you what I do, I think it would be fun and even beneficial to share some appropriate office antics.

    As I said before, I was all done with orientation an…

  6. X-Men 3: The Last Stand

    The movie was good.

    The last scene was excellent.

    The scene after the credits is jaw dropping.

    That’s right, you NEED to watch ALL the credits, then watch the last scene. Just about everyone at the Cinerama waited and then went "OOoooooo!…

  7. First Day

    Boeing Orientation is long, 4.5 hours long. Close to the end, I was practically sitting on my hands. But just like they said, it let out at 12pm sharp. There was a quick meeting with the SPEEA rep (Yea, I’m part of a union now) and then I headed d…

  8. Virtual Stock Exchange

    I’m playing in TDavid’s VSE Game. It’s been interesting. I was planning on buying some Vonage, wait a couple days while I watch it go up, and then sell it and watch it go right back down. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t as the stock took an ov…
