Take me out to the ball game! take 2

So if you read my previous post about International Pirate Day, You'll know that we (meaning me, nikki, danny, bobby, and JJ) were planning on going to the Mariners game that day...but since that didn't work out, we went last weekend. It was a really great day for a Mariners game, the sun was shining and the sky was blue. We played the Washington Nationals (I've been so out of the baseball loop for too long, I didn't even realize this team existed). The game wasn't too exciting (during the Mariner's only run we were out buying 8 dollar hot dogs), and the Mariners ended up losing, but all in all we had a fun time at the ball game. We even got to see some drunk guys get kicked out of the stadium! always fun!

Life at Alaska Airlines!

This summer, thanks to Terence's help, I was able to get a job at Alaska Airlines. I am working at the airport as a CSA (Customer Service Agent). I just finished my first week of on the job training at the airport and really like the job so far. One thing that my instructor told me is that once a passenger walks into the airport there is a weird phenomenon where they forget how to be rational, and everything is now your fault, whether it's the traffic or the weather or the fact that the person couldn't find their car keys, it's still your fault. I'm sure the job will be pretty stressful at times but I'm sure I'll be able to handle it. On my classes first day at the airport we took a tour of the airport and of course had to stop for our picture opportunities.

One thing that Alaska Airlines tries to do is make every department aware of what all the other departments do so we can better understand the company. It was neat to see all of the behind the scenes of the airport and see all the things that have to go together to make an airline run properly.

p.s. international pirate day

I also made a cake...duh.....

because of the exciting day in Seattle I didn't have much time for the cake...but it turned out all right!

Happy International Pirate Day!

So it is finally my favorite time of the year...the glorious week of Ernesta day which of course starts out with International Pirate Day! To celebrate the holiday then me and a few of my friends decided to go to Safeco Field and spend the day at a Mariners game. Well...this plan didn't quite work out as planned. Once we got to the stadium and went to will call to pick up our tickets we discovered that a certain individual who will remain un-named (Danny Knechtel) accidentally bought tickets for the next day. Since we were already in Seattle we decided to share the International Pirate Day spirit with the rest of the city. Here are a few pictures of our adventures as tourists trying to go to all the places that make Seattle so great!

Safeco Field

Qwest Field

Cool Stairs...artistic?

LUNCH TIME...Nikki and I decided to walk around Seattle eating Baguettes....delicious
