February 2006

Went down and met Paul at the Pier 1 parking lot at 6:15. We went to Denny’s down on 320th for breakfast. Then Paul told me about a paint sprayer that Home Depot was selling so off down there we went and I bought myself a paint sprayer. I will use it downstairs. Happy days.

We worked at Kris and Emily’s finishing off a bay windows outside trim.

We went to Ague Verde for dinner. Tasha bought Pride & Prejudice on dvd today. She has seen it a few times already at the theater and loved it. Today it was released on dvd. I saw it back when it came out at the theatre. Now I sit watching it again. I liked it for what it is. This time I can update my journal while I watch it. Not so bad.


Worked at the shop today building eight more shutters and resizing four others. Went to Athens pizza for lunch and had a grinder and salad.

Called and left a message for Nikki after work and let her know I wouldn’t be able to meet her tonight but maybe Wednesday.

We went to World Wraps for dinner. Nikki called back and left a message that tomorrow would be ok. I was hoping for Wednesday. Lets see.

Watched The transporter 2. It was good for the action. Now we will have to watch the first one. I also watched the movie I got from Ireland Man About Dog. It was funny in some spots other than that it was pure shite.

Went to the ol I-Hop for the breakfast. Lazed around home all day. Went to Whole Foods for lunch. Watched The Constant Gardner on dvd. I liked the movie.

Responded to Nikki:
Hello Nikki. How does 6:30 at the tea shop sound to you for tomorrow Monday? Give me a call on 206 227 0892 to let me know and for directions. Thanks Donal

I got an instant reply:
Hey, people. I’m going to the northern mountains of Norway. I don’t
know when I’ll return, but I do know that I won’t get your email or
your phone calls while I’m there.

much love

hey, Mariah, Tyler…this is really fun.


Went to Vashon and installed the shutters we built a few weeks ago. Worked a bit more on the spa bench. came back to West Seattle to do a bit more for John in his house. Called Nikki and let her know I could meet her next Monday. OK.
Met Natasha and Phillipa at the Barking Dog for dinner. Then I went over to visit the ruskie cats and feed them clean out the litter etc.

Woke up to snow and ice. Slipped out along the streets towards the job site. Put the truck in 4 WD and took off. Went to West Seattle ti View Pointe. Then had to go to Cornerstone in Queen Anne and caulk a metal deck in 310. Had a good chat with the people there. Then went to Blackstock lumber to pick up the clips for the deck tomorrow at Terry’s. Had Taco Time for lunch. Then over to Abofoluia in Magnolia to caulk the front door. Then over to Ballard Condos to check on a coulomb that wasn’t caulked during our investigation the last time we were there. So I caulked that up too. Today was a day of driving and caulking. Met Roger for a quick visit. Then over to see Dave’s progress on his job up the street.

Back home I got a movie from Ireland I had bought on eBay. Natasha and I went to Jaliscos for dinner. Then off to Costco for computer discs. Bought some more provisions there too. Came back home and watched Halflight on the ol dvd. It was with Demi Moore and was just ok.

I got a e-mail from Nikki tonight:

hey, how would Sunday Afternoon be to meet up?

I will call her tomorrow.

Went back to City View and finished up there. Met my friend in Redmond and got the $1,000 back from him that he owed me. Had to go to the Barrett house to take some photos of the siding that was stained through the paint with tanning, I went to whole foods for lunch.

We went to Agua Verde for dinner. After I went over to the Ruskies for a visit. I have to cat sit at the weekend for them. I was there until 9:30 pm.

the Asserter
Test finished!
you chose AY – your Enneagram type is EIGHT.

“I must be strong”

Asserters are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Stand up for yourself… and me.
  • Be confident, strong, and direct.
  • Don’t gossip about me or betray my trust.
  • Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
  • Give me space to be alone.
  • Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don’t flatter me.
  • I often speak in an assertive way. Don’t automatically assume it’s a personal attack.
  • When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that’s just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Eight

  • being independent and self-reliant
  • being able to take charge and meet challenges head on
  • being courageous, straightforward, and honest
  • getting all the enjoyment I can out of life
  • supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me
  • upholding just causes

What’s Hard About Being a Eight

  • overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don’t intend to
  • being restless and impatient with others’ incompetence
  • sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it
  • never forgetting injuries or injustices
  • putting too much pressure on myself
  • getting high blood pressure when people don’t obey the rules or when things don’t go right

Eights as Children Often

  • are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit
  • are sometimes loners
  • seize control so they won’t be controlled
  • fugure out others’ weaknesses
  • attack verbally or physically when provoked
  • take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Eights as Parents

  • are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted
  • are sometimes overprotective
  • can be demanding, controlling, and rigid
