Howdy. My ears feel like they have cotton in them. I just got back from the first day of Bumbershoot where I saw U.S.E. (rocked), Death Cab for Cutie (blah, I sat in the bleachers), and The Presidents of the United States of America (rocked). I got back from California on Tuesday and am in the process of writing a huge story, but it isn't done yet. On Wednesday I went to Dr. Dan's and bought 40 gallons of biodiesel (and pumped 10 into the car). My brother was with me and afterwards we went to PCC and bought a bunch of food (most, if not all, organic and vegan). We came home and made a good baked pasta with fake ricotta cheese made from tofu and fake mozzarella. On Thursday Hallie and I hung out for a while before heading downtown on the bus. We ate at Westlake Center and then shopped at Urban Outfitters where I saw Michael Fleming. I bought three shirts totaling $35. Today I rode my bike to the north end (where I ran into Philip from Boy Scouts) and went to Bumbershoot.
