Lunch time!

IMG_1078

I built up enough post buffer that I was actually able to go out and get lunch! Sean and I went to Dot’s Delicatessen, which I can safely say is my favorite place to eat in Seattle. Look at my adorable…eating establishment? Every one of their sandwiches is mindblowingly delicious. The first time I had …

My favorite Seattle coffee spots

IMG_1269

It’s time for a coffee break! I wish it were intraveniously. Also, I love how that cartoon looks like me! Well, as much as a stick figure can look like someone. (Can anyone let me know the source? A friend sent it along and I’d like to give proper attribution to the artist). Anyway, I …

Seattle’s proposed solution to their gun problem: God

Seattle is brainstorming ways to deal with the recent increase in gun-related violence in the city…and I’m a little skeptical of the idea proposed by Seattle City Council member Bruce Harrell: Harrell says he’s spoken with a number of pastors about putting together a gang outreach program that would combine clergy members with other mentoring …

Creepiest pickup line ever?

Seattle buses provide ample opportunity for creepy, bizarre, and/or uncomfortable situations with strangers. The one I just witnessed is the current “winner,” as the creepy older guy managed to somehow simultaneously hit on and witness to an attractive young woman sitting behind me. Guy: You’re so beautiful, intelligent, and spiritual.. I know because I can …

“Do women have too many rights?”

toomanyrights

How I wish that question was abruptly followed by laughter or “NO.” But alas, it’s not. It’s a title of a talk being given here at the University of Washington on Thursday by anti-choicer Abby Johnson. Yes, I do choose. I choose the answer “No.” I choose putting a woman’s right to control decisions about …

Sin of the week: Gluttony

photo (5)

My friend Mark has been visiting me in Seattle since Saturday afternoon. Mark and I have one of those weird sibling-like friendships that has lasted forever: we met in first grade and proceeded to go to the same elementary school, middle school, high school, and college. But honestly I’m a kind of mediocre tour guide …

Blackout and whiteout

PixelSnow

This is an odd combination. While much of my usual internet distractions are shut down in protest of SOPA and PIPA, Seattle is also shut down because of the snow. School was canceled, bus routes are mostly down, and the streets are totally impenetrable. At first I was worried – how am I going to …

The snowpocalypse is nigh!

Seattle’s weather report for the weekend: The system will develop into spotty snow showers down at sea level Sunday into Monday. Depending on where you are, accumulations could be anywhere from a trace to several inches. OH GOD. TRACE TO SEVERAL INCHES? WHY AM I ON THE INTERNET I NEED TO GO BUY WATER AND …

Seattle isn’t perfect

As much as I agree with the hilarious post about how “Seattle is objectively superior to the place you grew up,” I have to admit it’s not perfect. Like our main news station running a terrible piece on how Arizona sandstones prove Noah’s flood. Thanks for the uncritical support of young earth creationists, KOMO! I …
