Dewey Requests an Update

Halloween 2010...what a bunch of nerds! (this took A LONG time to draw and paint. It seemed like such a simple idea....)

Cal v. Oregon 2010 (@Cal, we won't talk about who won....) Like any trip to the bay area Zachary's Pizza and In n' Out were heavily featured. 

Ummm...I have no idea when this is from, but I'll say Valentines day 2010, and I am clearly putting on the moves. You're welcome for me including such touching moments. 

January 2011 -- JEOPARDY CHAMP! Holy Molie! Symphonicity biatches!

April 2011 -- Timbers Join Major League Soccer, us at their Home Opener sitting in the Timbers Army (where we have had season tickets for a couple of years now). 

 We still play kickball with our team--New Kicks on the Block (aren't we cleaver with our name and stuff?). 

Please note that we take kickball seriously. My stance is aggressive, there is a legit scoreboard, our socks are bright. Watch Out. (Side note: in this picture we were playing the team that won the league championship this season, and they destroyed us on the scoreboard, but we definitely talked a better game than them. Psh!). 


 June 2011 -- Disney World Trip! We had dinner at a steakhouse in the Canadian pavilion at Epcot and it came out that Genaro was a Jeopardy champ, so the waiters were way excited that such a Canadian-appropriate quasi-celebrity was dining in their restaurant and they made him wear three birthday pins that said, (1) "I was on Jeopardy!" (2) "And I won..." (3) "A LOT!!" Which leads to other cast members outside of the restaurant saying, "Happy Birthday 'And I won'.....uhhh....what?"

Group shot from Disneyworld -- matchy matchy shirt day! hoorah! We're so happy and warm!

Halloween 2011 -- We were sooooo angry. (Also my sewing machine may never forget me for learning how to use it while making these costumes). Tweet, tweeeeeeet!

November 2011 -- engaged! 

Tuh Duh! :o)

Pub quiz!

Being nerdy lovers of trivia, we have started going to local pub quiz events here in Portland. Nerd time and beer time, all together -- hoorah. Well, we found the perfect combination of nerdy knowledge with our new quiz team -- winners last week! yay! (and there are so many nerdy trivia lovers in Portland, that's a serious accomplishment!).

Anyways! This is all an excuse to post the picture the pub quiz host took of our fearsome team -- BEHOLD, the New Quiz on the Block! (name slightly altered from our kickball team, The New "kicks" on the block. hehe!)

Happy Halloween!


Our homemade costumes for this year. Maybe we've been playing too many video games?

Kickball!

This summer a group of us law grads joined an adult kickball league here in Portland. That's right, a bunch of weekend warriors busting our butts to run around bases and hopefully catch those fly balls. You should all officially move to Portland so you can join our team!

Anyways, my real motivation in posting about our kickball team is to gush over how much I love the team names. Some of my favorites (and keep in mind they provide beer to all the teams, so it's a very jolly time): "Booze on First", "Socialist Kicktators", "Where My Pitches At?", and possibly the best team name ever: "Ricardo Montalballs"

Our team name: New Kicks on the Block

Post-Bar Celebrations

We finally finished all that bar exam junk and we got out of town ASAP! We visited Genaro's family in New York and Maine and had an absolute blast. Here is a photographic rundown.



Hanging out on the raft anchored in front of the cabins in Maine.


The best glass of all time, although we didn't play any tennis, we played corn hole!
The photos below are on the lawn of one of the cabins right on lake Alamoosook.

For those unfamiliar with the game, you play on teams of two and try to through the bag of corn throw the hole on the board (thus "corn hole"). 1 point for any bag on the board, 3 points for a corn hole.






Ambushed by photographers on our way to the lobster feast!

Lobster boat of the coast at Acadia National Park.

A shot of downtown Bucksport, the small town lake Alamoosook is by.

A shot from Camden, Maine.

NEW YORK! Pizza! Yay! This was a place called Lombardi's. Absolutely delicious, although I still prefer Portland's Apizza Scholls.

We spent a lot of time at museums. We made it to the Met, MOMA, the Natural History museum, but when we walked up to the Guggenheim we learned it was closed on Thursdays. Someone else had already written that note and left it on the closed sign. We detoured to Central Park and walked almost the entire length of the park. Phew.


Water reservoir in the park.


A castle in the park!


A photo for the legal nerds. This is the edge of the Brooklyn bridge--is Genaro stepping on to the bridge, or just preparing to step on to the bridge?


A shot of Manhattan from the ferry ride across the Hudson.

Below are some favorite pictures from the art museums.

A little adventuring!

Since we have a little bit of free time (and some early graduation gifts) we decided to take off for the weekend.

We took off from Portland, headed up to Victoria, British Columbia for a day and then over to Seattle for a Mariners game. Getting to and from Canada we took ferries and enjoyed the beautiful sights of the pacific and the San Juan islands. Lucky for us, last weekend was the best weather of the year thus far!


Crossing the Straight of Juan de Fuca. Those are the Olympic mountains in Washington state, and on the water is a submarine!


The parliament building in Victoria.


Victoria herself, well, in statue form at least!


Inside the parliament building.

Gretzky, not just for Hockey anymore... :) We didn't try his wine, alas.


English and French as official languages leads to more exciting cereal boxes! Vive le Capitaine! (Although I'm sure even in French, Captain Crunch still cuts up the top of your mouth...)

On the way back to Washington, traveling through the San Juan Islands. Everyone who had a boat was out enjoying the water.


More San Juan Islands. The water was so calm and glassy!

Yay! Safeco field and the Mariners game! Mariners v. Red Sox! There were actually a lot of Oregon State jerseys around the stadium since the center fielder for the red sox, Jacoby Ellsbury, went to OSU. His hometown is actually Madras, Oregon, so he was a local favorite all around.


The amazing view from the stadium, the spaceneedle is to the left of the second light post.


One of my good friends lives in Montana right now, but she's a die hard red sox fan, so she was in Seattle for the series and we got to see each other for a bit! Yay! I'm sure one day the Red Sox will play in Missoula...uh huh...yup...
