A Dead Week/Finals Week Beard

Note: I recently had some computer issues that caused me to rethink how I was preserving some pictures and other items on the hard drive of my laptop. After some thought, I decided to use this blog to record some events that happened before this space was created. However, many of these events occurred before I met Adria so she isn't likely to appear in these posts. You can look at all of these posts by clicking this link here.

For Dead Week and Finals Week, I (along with many of my school buddies) decided that we would not shave until we had taken all of our tests (much like the playoff beards that hockey and baseball players grow). Below is what is looked like:

Here are some pictures from Oregon State's 50-21 victory in the 2004 Civil War.

Here are my buddies Brant and Henry:


During the 2nd half, Richard Siegler had a little chat with Derek Anderson. Siegler was probably congratulating D.A. on a good game.




This game is also known by some as "The Bill Swancutt Game", which I think this video explains the reasoning behind:


This also was the last game in Reser Stadium before they rebuilt the east grandstand and added a second deck. They had torn down the east grandstand before the season started and we had sat/stood on metal bleachers for the duration of the season. They also had started doing some prep work on the site over the course of the season. They had erected some giant pillars which can be seen in the picture below:


With about a minute left in the game, the fans started to get antsy and they started to get ready to rush the field. I went as well, because when a wave of people are coming down on you, it is often best to just go with the flow.


As Justin and I were walking off the field, we happened upon the table where the players Gatorade is placed. And since there were a few cups left, Justin had a celebratory cup of Gatorade.

For Memorial Day 2004 I took a trip from Everett, Washington, where I was an intern with Boeing, and visited my parents and brother James in Lincoln City, Oregon for the 3-day weekend. Below are some pictures from the trip:

A Day Trip To Seattle

I recently had some friends come up and visit me in Washington. After they arrived in Everett we drove down to Seattle and walked around and saw what there was to see (Adria and I would later see many of the same things when we were in Seattle on a business trip)

Here is a picture of me with a life-sized wooden pirate.

For some food we ate at a restaurant called "The Crab Pot". It was a fun place to eat. They take a giant bowl of seafood and dump it on the table in front of you. Then you got to eat the food with your hands.

We also visited Pike's Place Market and walked around for a while (although we didn't run across the Sasquatch)

We also found this giant totem pole near Pioneer Square.

We also took a ride around Puget Sound on a ferry. Here are some pic


While on the ferry, we also did a little bit of mullet hunting.

This also happened:

After the ferry trip we stopped by an old Soviet submarine:


After stopping by the submarine, we continued on our way and watched a Seattle Mariners game. Here are the view from our seats

One day while I was an intern for Boeing, received an invitation to take a tour of Connexion 1, the flying show-room for Boeing's Connexion service which provided in-flight broadband internet access. It was an interesting tour, and we got to test out the service. A picture of our tour group is below:

On January 10th, 2004 I went with my brother James and some friends to watch the Oregon State/Oregon basketball game. As my friends and I went to virtually every men's basketball game we sat in our usual seats, which you can see if you look carefully in the picture below. I am the one with the pensive look on my face (click on the picture for a larger version of it). If you get tired of playing "Where's Waldo", the click here for the answer.


Below is a picture of James, his roomate Nick, me, and a bunch of my friends.
