It was a bright and smoggy day...

` That's right - I've been hiding these pictures from you since February! Can you believe it!? It was before I'd even posted any pictures of my new Denny's friends!

` This was back when Lou Ryan didn't have a readily-available vehicle (though someone has recently busted the windows on both of his trucks) and so I offered to let him drive my Chevy Burgundy Rectangle to his attorney's office in Seattle.
` You see, he had been scammed by a fake patent company whom he entrusted with his design and paid large sums of money to. Now it would seem that he can get his money back – and then some, when they shell out his gag order!
` (How do you like that? A crazy surgeon tortures me and the ER people throw me in a mental hospital because I’m so traumatized and I don’t get one red cent! Plus, I'm now poor partly because I still have a serious mental condition from it! Meanwhile, Lou gets scammed by some stupid company and he can win thousands!)
` That riveting concept aside, it was quite a dull trip there. However, I did take several Crappy Digital Photos for all to see.
` First of all, I was sure to photograph the fancy-schmancy Space Needle, which I never plan to enter because going up there costs at least a total of $40!

` Then, along this stretch of road I had tried to take many pictures, but my CDC didn't even budge! Apparently, the stretch of road was cursed, because just when I'd thought it was broken....

` ...Or perhaps there was just too much light.

` Then I photographed one of many curving, Seussian ramps that you can find almost anywhere near I-5 in downtown Seattle;

` Oh yeah, and for some reason, the sun was blue that day....

` But on our way back, the sky was a uniform gray over the hangars....

` And then we got a chance to race a freight train!

` On the other side of the bridge, I had tried to photograph the water and the mountains past Lou (and the freight docks), but apparently they were vampires:

` ...Or not.

` Then, I kept trying to snap more pictures, but as we were on that Cursed Stretch of Road, my CDC refused, until....

` Hey, those buildings look familiar!

` Here's another view of the water, with mountains and boats and seagulls and some type of boat-oriented building....

` Just after we had passed by, a gigantic friendly neighborhood reptile named Gojira burst out of the water and began yelling at everyone to stop what we were doing and let him pressure-wash the city for once. At that point, Lou floored it into the Gojira Evacuation Tunnel and we got out of there without my Burgundy Rectangle sustaining any damage.

` Excellent driving, Lou!

` Once on the other side, I tried my luck at shooting any of the Boat-Bus Tourists who were using those Evil Duck-Call-Beak thingies, but there was too much wind in the way!

` ...And I had been hoping for some Surf n' Turf!
` Needless to say, I went home hungry.
` But later that night, we traveled to the city of Snohomish to go to a certain café you might be able to intuit the name from this picture of the logo if you remember my posts from earlier this year well enough:

` That's right, it's Wired and Unplugged! While we were there, we performed some of our awesome music on stage - me on the piano, Lou on his guitar....


` Apparently, that place had a Glowing, Electric Star infestation. Pesky little things....

` This other guy who Lou had once educated about the guitar - London I think his name was - had also played for the crowd.


` ...But eventually, Gojira began rampaging through the countryside because he was so upset that nobody wanted to be his friend, so we had to leave.

` Well, that's what you get when you insist on doing stupid things that piss everyone else off! I guess lizards aren't mentally developed enough for that....
