Dumb fucker could have stayed in a house where you live and looked at pictures of the beach! No wonder you're always so broke! Damn!!!
He's broke because he hired someone to clean his one bedroom apartment. Something he could have done himself. Looking at pics of the beach isn't the same experience as being there. A once in a while vacation getaway is deserved. Just my unsolicited opinion.
I took a road trip to Portland once for a wedding (I think it was around 1999 or 2000) and took the road to Tillamook on the way back and took the coastal road on the way back. I went to some cool rose garden while I was in Portland and also went to the Saturday market (is that what it's called?).
I've had dates at both the rose garden and Saturday market.
