If I could dig a whole to China…

July 30, 2005 // 0 Comments

Good Morning. Well, I have been holding back about writing about my latest possibility because it has not been made official as of yet, but it would seem that we are getting closer and closer to the moment where it is going to become official. I am attempting to go to China to teach English. I have been in correspondence with a University in the Hunan province for the last 10 days about coming over and teaching English for them on a one year contact. The process has been somewhat tedious in the sense that there is a language barrier at a time where we are trying to negotiate the terms of the contract. It does appear that I have been officially offered the position as of this morning, but there has not been any official documentation rendered as of yet, but I am now satisfied with what I see that the rest of the negotiation process is going to be operating smoothly. Here are the details, for those of you that […]

A Visit…

A note on the pictures: If you click on them, they will size to your computer screen. If you click on the icon on the lower right hand corner of the image after it has been resized to fit your screen, it will then be displayed close to actual size…. One of the better family pictures taken in recent times (sans Sarah). Pa has a slight smile (hes tryin) but this might have just been him picking at his dressing on his recent mouth surgery and not actually smiling–although all were in good spirits. This is a shot of Dad’s impression of a House of Commons speech by a Tory. A little change of pace. These are pictures taken last weekend when some of the New York side of the Hoch squad rolled into town. My mother looks really good in this here shot-she had a pint of beer which really brings out her complexion. This is also a classic Steve Hogg look. This is his conversation/lecture look where he is making […]

The Bite of Seattle…

Okay, so I know that some people are going to get pissed off at me about this shot, but man, when the opportunity presents itself, you just have to put it on the web. First off, that poor poor thong. Ladies, please think about the right times to wear a thong. I know that Chingy likes his bitches to always wear them and Cisco too, but for the rest of us, please try to contain yourselves. Secondly, this was taken at the Bite of Seattle. Man, I think I got something stuck in my teeth, but I can’t seem to find the floss….. Okay, I’m Done. (Be sure to click on the pic for a special treat!) We also got to see this lil hottie perform while Flossy was showing us her buffet. She was pretty talented for the first couple of songs, then became a little dull, but fun to watch. Do you remember the days when the Fat yet kinda buff Elvis lookalike days were not here? I think its […]

Sounders v Sunderland

July 27, 2005 // 0 Comments

Ahhh yes, summer is here and in Seattle, that means FUTBOL! This is a shot from the Seattle Sounders and Sunderland sucky match. This will be the only picture that I post of this match because it was the worst FUTBOL game I have ever watched. Sunderland is in the premiere league this year and they handled Seattle with ease. The worst part is that Sunderland had no intention of really scoring during the entire game–they just seemed to be running drills against the JV team. The other bad part was the lack of planning on behalf of Qwest Field– they only opened one side of the stadium, which made the game so much lamer because there were not 4,000 per side, but 8,000 on one side. (Sad part was it was the sounders biggest attendance ever!!!) Sounder fans were like band geeks in high school–but with BOOZE!!! Not to mention the $7.50 Red Hook Pounders!!! Go Capitalism!

Summer Sailing

July 17, 2005 // 0 Comments

Ahhh, the scenes of summer. This was actually taken a couple of weeks ago during the July 4th weekend of celebration and such. It was nice to get out into some sunny weather and enjoy the warm heat on my skin, which soon enough turned into some nasty sunburn, but all in all, the effect was still glorious. It’s been a nice, relaxing weekend and dare I say, the weather in Seattle has managed to show a little sunshine. Alas, I am stuck inside as I have a shit ton of work to get done this weekend and not much money to go out and reek havok upon the city. Worka has been durka durka, but I am slowly digging myself out of the hole that is Hogg. I am confident that sometime in the next three months, I will be able to sit back and not owe basically everyone I know. 🙂 In other news that is annoying, NIN tickets went on sale yesterday, but I am still paying off my […]
