I iz jealous - you get to live in Seattle, land of constant drizzle. (at least that I know of, do correct me if I'm wrong)

I like that kind of weather, sun is evil. *giggles*

I actually don't live here :) I live on a large Island off the coast of British Columbia called Vancouver Island (same name, but not the same place as the city of Vancouver).

We're just in Seattle for a visit :)

And it is drizzling - though this is the first rain this area of the world has had in about 3 weeks or more.

1 - I keep changing layouts because I can't find anything that I really like, and I have no idea how to make my own.

2 - That's funny! I'm home now but when you left this message I certainly was in Washington - at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, to be specific! So glad that you're enjoying your trip! BC is beautiful :)

3 - Ooh, that sounds like fun! I bet it was a blast!
