  • Josh Hunter's Facebook profile

dude, finally…

  • I can share toothbrushes w/ my beloved (when necessary) w/o getting (too) grossed out…although still can’t do the tongue-cleaning motion with it.  Doesn’t seem right.
  • There’s this feeling people have, sort of an “I want to go home” feeling, when away for even just a day or two. Finally, I can say I’ve felt that.  Overnight trips are fun adventures, but it’s always good to get back up the hill.
  • I had serious doubts, but it has come to pass—I’m chilly. In JAMAICA.  Josh just went to wish someone happy birthday down the road and he came back to get a hoodie!  It feels great!  (The coolness is accompanied by crippling humidity, but that’s another story.)
  • And people tell us to expect even cooler temps into January!
  • We hosted a couple at our house and it worked out just fine!  Now, they are probably some of the most low-maintenance folks you’ll meet (and thoughtful, generous, optimistic, etc.), but the staying of more than one person is ground-breaking.  I hope to have another double mattress here before our next couple visits.  Nick & Linz—thanks for a great time!
  • An overnight occasion at the Glass House and nothing got tiifed (aka stolen)! PROGRESS.
  • Another great stay with Tracy (our embassy hook-up!) in Kingston.  We had some business to attend to, and we got a little R&R in there too—washer/dryer, high speed internet, cable, workout room, a/c, hot water.  With all this rain in Portland, I really appreciate the good dry on my undies & jeans!  Here’s to taking a reeeeaaalllly long shower too.  Not to mention we got to hang out with our favorite Idahoans. Fun times—we always end up staying longer than planned!
  • Someone (in Cambodia) has purchased airline tickets to visit us!  Corey is officially visiting in late April and I’m pretty impressed and pumped.  Others have voiced interest/intent to visit—Hunters in January, my mom in Feb, maybe Cloud in Feb (or sometime)
  • Finally—really good tacos!  We really pulled out a delicious, however non-traditional, Thanksgiving meal at the Glass House last night.  Even though we got a late start…even though we had to make a pit-stop at the Port Antonio ER…all the ingredients came together and made incredibly perfect tacos.  A good taco is comfort food for Josh and myself.  Over tacos, 5 people became “family.”  It was that good.
