House of Reggae?

What a weekend. Friday I had the day off from work and I went outdoor rock climbing with Jesse and Mike Caouette. Please note the amount of vowels in Mike’s last name. FIVE. That’s 62.5% vowels. Can anyone top that?

The rock climbing was amazing. It was so peaceful, with the sky stretched out above us and the 85 foot rock face in front of us. Jesse and I both did 5.9- and it wasn’t too much of a challenge. We will definitely go again to push our limits.

Saturday I drove back to Mass to visit Jill. we made a delicious curry dinner and watched closer. I will refrain from making any comments about Natalie Portman’s exciting character.

Sunday I spent some more time with Jill, we went to Hammond Castle. It was great, and if you ever happen to be in Glochester, check it out. It was built by John Hammond, the inventor of remote control. Post Castle, we saw star wars and ordered out from a Chinese Restaurant. I will refrain from making any comments about Natalie Portman’s exciting character.

And yesterday, yesterday I bought some steel drums. And with this single purchase, The House of Rock got just a little more Reggae.

    Is there a picture of these steel drums? Perhaps a picture of you playing the steel drums.

    1) I can’t think of any people that can out-vowel that guy, but I can think of some states:

    Iowa- 75% vowel
    Ohio- 75% vowel
    Hawaii- 66% vowel
    Louisiana- 66% vowel

    And some continents:
    Asia- 75%
    Europe- 66%

    And some conbined continents:
    Eurasia- 71%

    2) Isn’t John Hammond the guy who invented Jurassic Park?

    3) Natalie Portman… must show restraint like Mike D……..

    Yes, yes it was John Hammond. Weird. Eerie.

    I’ve been to Hammond Castle myself. My favorite part was the room that could rain. Also enjoyed the “haunted” tower.

    The room that could rain? I don’t remember that. How did we miss that, Michael?

    Becky: You did yes, but I had wanted to see the movie long before I had known she would be a stripper.

    Jill: I actually think it was written on one of those signs, and I think the room is the courtyard, with the pool.

    Vowel Percentages off the top of my head:

    Mao: Chairman, dictator, bad haircut = 67% vowels

    Sequoia: Big trees = 71% vowels

    Io: Moon of Jupiter, probably named for somebody, discovered by Galileo in 1610 = 100% vowels

    Io is also the supreme god (Zeus equivalent) in Polynesian mythology. Zeus is only 50% vowels, therefore the Polynesians are right.

    Io is a pretty good one, I had forgotten about the Celestial bodies. Though the beauty of Mike Caouette’s name is even with 8 letters it’s still hitting 60%. Io, at a mere two letters, is almost embarassing in comparison.

    Sequoia though. Good find. 7 letters deep and 71% awesome.

    Technically speaking it was Micheal Crichton that invented Jurassic Park, not John Hammond, he wrote the book…
