I'm not on a boat

It's Seafair weekend in Seattle, one of our absolute favorite holidays!

Normally, you would find us out on the lake playing the Top Gun soundtrack at top volume, hanging off the boat tower, fighting for the beer bong, and generally making spectacles of ourselves. Loud and proud.

Unfortunately, this year the weather forecast is pretty sub par, and the Blue Angels have been replaced by some smaller, slower, quieter and generally lamer air show. So we decided to reconsider how to best maximize our opportunities for Seafair 2013...

Seafair Shindig at the Alway's!

I barely even know what my new house looks like on the weekends, most of our friends haven't seen it, and our new neighbors probably think we're assholes because we've lived there for months and haven't time for anything more than a friendly beer at the end of the driveway.

So we've got our drinking pants and pirate garb ready for an epic backyard barbecue filled with all of our favorite things... day drinking, lawn games, music, and a kiddie pool filled with ice and beers. Because that's the same thing as being out on a boat... right?

Anyway, it being Friday and all, I'm backin' it up with Whitney, Seafair style.


What do you have planned for the weekend? Talk to me, Goose!


  1. Oooh....your Seafair party sounds awesome. Have a good time!! :)

  2. We'll be flippin burgers, but now we straight editin copies" So... that was my effort at adjusting the lyrics to accurately reflect our current situation. My weekend plans, you ask, involve work, you, a hike, and more work. Sounds like a blast to me! Now this song is stuck in my head...
