Rush Hour!

There wasn't much to do on Friday after we attended the Admissions Interview and checked out apartments for THE SCHOOL. So I looked to Computer Boy and he said, "I know, let's go to Krispy Kreme!" (Seriously, the boy is a Krispy Kreme addict, especially since they closed the chain in our part of the country.)

I thought sure, why not, don't have anything else to do but sit in out hotel room. So Computer Boy plugged in the coordinates to our GPS and away we.... SAT... In traffic... Bumper to Bumper... On our way to DOWNTOWN SEATTLE AT 5:00 in the evening! But that's cool, it's not like we had anyplace we had to be. It's just that trying to navigate rush hour traffic with a GPS that tells you to stay right and at the next block informs you to turn left, which in fact is 3 lanes over... Well, let's just say it can be a bit daunting.

And just to add insult to injury, as we got closer to our destination, the GPS would update us by saying, ".5 miles to Krispy Kreme Doe-NOTS on left."

My reply, "Listen bitch, DON'T judge!"

Oh boy. You would have been REALLY mad if you knew there was a Krispy Kreme in Issaquah - not far from Redmond at all. MUCH easier to get to from Redmond than downtown Seattle at 5pm on a Friday. :)

Doe-NOTS - I love it!!!

In Issaquah?... Seriously?...
Well, I have to be honest... If we'd gone to Issaquah we would've missed that brisk night walk around the Space Needle and lost the opportunity to turn down the $18 per person ride to the top of said Needle, not to mention the chance to buy dear daughter a Space Needle t-shirt!

May I ask where in Washington you're located? Is it close to Digipen? Do you need a renter?.... I'm KIDDING!!! :-P

Oh the Space Needle - CRAZY prices!!! I'd say do it once, the view is amazing, but still. Go during the day when it's clear and sunny. (The two days a year that happens.)

We're NE of Redmond, about 5 miles away. And there is always room at the Funny Farm, the goats would love a roommate! LOL
