Toasty.

It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive to the Pacific Ocean beaches from Seattle. It's only going to be about 70 there, but I didn't go last year, and I love walking up and down the smooth beach, wading in the (cold) surf.

It's questions like this that make me truly appreciate living in the part of NZ I do (same as Ian), that we have two different oceans on two different coasts, both within easy driving distance

I can go to polluted eastern beaches or drown on the west coast beaches

Islands FTW?

I'm about 1/2 hour to an ocean (Pacific)

Sounds like a good way to end the week cori!

See, a two and a half hour drive to the beach is insane to me. It's about an hours lazy walk to the nearest decent beach to me. If that.

The Atlantic Ocean is only two hours from me.

On to Revolver.

There are a few decent beaches in Seattle itself, one in my neighborhood, that are on the shores of the bays of Puget Sound, but it's not the same.

Plus, I love driving on beautiful days - windows down, music cranked, singing at the top of my lungs .... good times. But it would pretty much be an all-day excursion.

If I stayed home I'd probably just hang out and read all day. Which I can do Saturday and Sunday before heading back to work.

I know! But on the randomness scale, that was like a 9 and a half.

It's barely a 20 minute drive to the wild West Coast for me, and the River Estuary, or a 40 minute drive to the safer East Coast beaches

I couldn't stand being landlocked.

The hideously stinky Waikato river is a 2 minute drive from my house. It's so brown and foul. My kids freak thinking about the Aucklanders drinking it!!

Back, sorry, long drawn out MSN conversatiosn for the win mi rite


Not much on Sticky fingers stuck out for me, but it was all nice jazzy. Brown Sugar's a fun song, and I've never really liked Wild Horses. Can't You Hear Me Knocking was pretty amazing , and the last two tracks, Dead Flowers and Moonlight Mile, were probably my favorite part of the album

What I think is moronic is that in Victoria, you actually need to pay for a special student travel ID thing to get the student discount. Your university student ID isn't good enough, even though it is in Queensland! At least the travel ID now only costs $8.50 - it was apparently over $100 a few years ago.
