Any idiot can drive fast in a straight line

Yahoo! News: "An out-of-control driver slammed his SUV into a pregnant woman outside a lower East Side church yesterday before flipping onto a crowd of mourners at a funeral." An SUV ran into a PREGNANT WOMAN and then flipped into a FUNERAL? BANSUVS! Of course, this was also an asian driver. Just cause you can pass a 20 question written test and then barely pass a 30 minute driving test does not mean you should be on the road. The Pacific NW is filled with these people, usually the asians driving either Japanese or German cars in white or silver. If I see a female with dark hair driving a white Camry, I get the hell out of the way.

Damn, I sound racist. Oh well, it's not my fault they all suck at driving.

Sorry, everyone. My photo gallery was down for a couple of days because I messed up my DHCP settings at home. I knew it was down and I knew it would only take fifteen minutes to fix, I just didn't have the time! Anyway, it's back up, so enjoy.

Two weekends ago, Kat and I went to the San Juan islands with her parents. We stayed at the Friday Harbor Hotel and had a pretty good time. I didn't know this, but Friday Harbor was the location of an American-English battle back in the day! They have turned the two camps into national parks and they are creatively enough called American Camp and English Camp. I personally liked English Camp more, but that could be because the weather when we visited there was warm and sunny while it was rainy, windy and almost freezing when we were at American Camp! Most people seem to prefer American Camp more simply because there is a beach on the premisise.

One of the highlights of the trip was taking a Cessna from the island back to mainland! Instead of taking the hour+ ferry trip, we just hopped on a plane and were on the mainland in about ten minutes. I'll be honest, I was scared shitless. If it wasn't for me trying to figure out how to take good pictures from inside a cramped plane, I probably would have soiled myself.

Ok, pictures. Here are my favorites from American Camp, the ferry ride and the plane ride, in that order.
