I Love Drawing Games

What better way to pass the time among friends than by playing drawing games? These are quite silly, but I find them amusing. The first page on the left is a "Cute Off" as Austin likes to call it - we take turns seeing if we can top each other in drawing something painfully cute. It got grotesque real fast. The second page is a game we'd draw one part of an image, cover it up, and pass it to someone else. Then we'd surprise ourselves by uncovering the monstrosity we've created. These drawings are by Austin Madison, Pat McHale, Amalia Levari, and myself.

Sly O in Seattle

Space Needle Biznass
So far our little "tour" has been a success! And it's not over yet. Pat's to the left of me as I type this post and Austin's in the bathroom getting his morning started. Amalia got her own hotel last night at the snazzy Sheraton and we're suppose to meet up with her later for a final coffee - hopefully we'll make enough time to pack and get everyone to the airport in time.
Sly O at the Fishy-Smellin' City Market
We got a ton of cool photos, stories, and above all: footage! Austin took the reigns as the documentary cameraman for the trip - but I guess it's up to me to edit it all together, so look for a little video in the future.

Pickin' Up Sly Orange from PDX

The dreary parking lot of Portland Int'l Airport
In a matter of minutes, I will be picking up Austin and Pat from the airport and join up with Amalia (who flew in earlier) and we will engage in a weekend of mayhem and hilarity. There's not much to say other than the fact the we plan on driving up to Seattle to do who know's what - something about grabbing coffee atop the Space Needle. This should be fun - the keyword is should. I'm practically reuniting with some of my closest friends from college, however part of me is not quite sure how the chemistry is going to play out, since there's a slight chance that we may or may not be the type of friends who just "pick up where we left off." Those friends are becoming more and more rare by the day, so we'll see what happens.
