Kendall Watson of the Kirkland Reporter did an article in this week's paper about the growing popularity of blogs and online forums that focus on local content and discussions. He invited our whole family down for a chat and photos, which I agreed to so long as they had a slimming lense and could airbrush the dark circles under our eyes (we had just moved the day before). :-)
Seriously, I think it is cool that a printed medium is supportive and promoting local online resources for the community. I'm also pretty sure I said about six intelligent sentences prior to the 'fork in the eye' comment, but it's possible I didn't. My point was that we love writing about things in Kirkland that we find interesting, funny and sometimes thought-provoking (or pot-stirring??). As long as you guys are enjoying it, we will keep on writing!
And since Kendall mentioned Jason, our Kirkland " Bachelorette" guy, I should also let you know that we ran into him again. He's so darn cute I keep forgetting to snap a picture for you. He was just enjoying a sunny day at Marina Park with his son. When I said 'hello' poor little Ty was instantly peeved, which is understandable when you're 3 and suddenly every adult in town stops to chat up your dad. Did you watch Monday night? I thing our Kirkland boy might win the girl! We were caught off guard when DeAnna gave Jessie a rose. Then she had to choose between Jason and Jeremy and my heart was breaking for Jason as his lip quivered and we all thought he might be toast (she's had the hots for Jeremy since the beginning). Now it's down to the Final 2, so Jason (woohoo!) and Jessie the snowboarder dude (booooo!) get to join her in her hometown. Don't miss the finale on Monday at 8pm on ABC. Go Jason Go! ~Janis
ps- don't forget to hit the NASA themed 4th of July parade on Friday at 11:30 downtown. See you there! j
