Olympics Commentary, Our Way (Part 1)

Controversy aside, K and I are watching the Olympics.  I can’t help myself.  Neither can she.  We watch, we get inspired, we feel the universal connection.  And, we do our own commentary.  Truthfully, we don’t just do commentary for the Olympics.  It’s a nightly, daily, hourly occurrence in our house.  But when the Olympics areContinue reading “Olympics Commentary, Our Way (Part 1)”

It’s a good day.  Had a follow up ultrasound to check on the blood clots in my arm and hand and they are no longer there… yay!  Also had blood work done today, normal Monday thing, and just found out I am no longer neutropenic.  My platelets are up, and the other things are stillContinue reading “Neutropenic No More”

Nike Women’s Marathon

Nike Women’s Marathon Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl One of the reasons we went to San Francisco, and what really started our trip planning process in the first place, was that one of our friends had been picked, by lottery, to walk in the Nike Women’s Marathon. 13 miles… impressive. We went to Union Square withContinue reading “Nike Women’s Marathon”

Inside Al’s

Inside Al’s, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Actually, this photo makes it look pretty light in there, but it was darkish, lights along the lanes, pins that were lit as well. Almost like cosmic bowling. The huge screens played music videos the whole time, kinda cool. I liked the place.

The Chase

The Chase, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went to a Portland Lumberjax game last Friday night at the Rose Garden. The LumberJax, for those who might not know, play lacrosse.

Action

  Action, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Loads of action during a lacrosse game. We’d never been to one before, but we liked it. Fast paced, constant movement, and fairly high scoring. Pretty fun. I think we might just go again.

Beavers Baseball

Beavers Baseball, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Last night we had the pleasure of going to a Portland Beavers baseball game. The good news… we won. The better news… it was a good game. The best news… a friend of ours, GO ERIC, sang the national anthem before the game. He was awesome, and I’m notContinue reading “Beavers Baseball”

Scrambling For The Ball

Scrambling For The Ball, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Rugby always looks exhausting to me. Guys flying all over the field, constant movement, clashes of brute strength. It’s gotta be so tiring.

I used this picture because most ofContinue reading “In The Thick of It”

Reaching

Reaching, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. So far it’s been a pretty good Saturday. An early rugby game at Delta Park, a stop by the vet to get some new flea stuff for Weston, a walk around Cathedral Park, and now some quiet blogging, surfing time. I believe we may be off to do the lastContinue reading “Reaching”
