Seattle Fun - Archie McPhee

Archie McPhee may be the greatest crap store ever! So great that it's actually two right next door to the other. Monica and I spent well over an hour just foolin' around in there. Too much fun! Other than the fun stuff you see us playing with and all of the crazy novelty stuff you would find in a Spencer's type store, there's....junk. Leftover stuff from the 80's, leftover mechincal pieces, and some of the most random stuff you would never think to find in a store. And the bag my purchases were given to me in....a paper cosmetics bag straight from 1989, mauve and sea-foam green and all. Anyhow, here's some fun pictures from our adventure!

Well, I'm home from Seattle. I had a BLAST! Monica and I did almost everything on our itinerary, plus a few extra things. Bumbershoot was totally the highlight and seeing Mike Doughty as the last show topped it off. The burlesque show was also one of my favorite parts. Not only do I know how to pole dance (thanks to Katie's bachelorette party), I now know how to twirl booby tassels! As for all of the other things we did, I think I will write about them later (hopefully this weekend) and post them on my other blog.

So now I'm going to crawl into my warm squishy bed, which I have missed dearly, and watch a movie before crashing early. It's amazing how exhausting a vacation can be!
