yep these are from Pipsqueak and they hang all over Squire Park, especially around Washington Hall and the Juvenile Detention Center. Really great stuff.

Commercial tampons ARE really bad for you, filled with bleach and other synthetics. Central Coop has natural cotton tampons for those (like me) who cannot do the cup thing.

@27 "Most people had no idea" Pu-leeze. This is a presumably educated grown woman who worked in Bellevue real estate for 10 years. She knew full well that her new neighborhood would grow—she just doesn't like how it's growing!
What I don't understand is why she thinks she has to buy a second car? Shouldn't they be downsizing?

YES! Everything Dan said. Your fiancee is your family now. Focus your energy on making your current family happy. Don't bend over backwards to make your previous family happy. If they don't love you for who you are it is not love.
You sound like an open-hearted, wonderful and kind person. I'm so sorry your shitty family doesn't accept you for the beautiful spirit that you are. I'm glad you found your love and yourself in Seattle.
commented on Yeah, Sure, The Stranger's Offices Have Mice, But at Least We Don't Have "Large Rats" Like the State Department Has
I've spotted rats all over Seattle this spring, including on the Madrona beach in broad daylight among the sunbathers and, ahem, around my own home. The exterminator says that there are more rats around town because of the construction boom. (He said I didn't even want to know what the Bertha tunnel is unearthing.) Long story short, every time a building goes down or an empty lot is cleared for construction, the rats (and bugs) need to find somewhere else to go. I'm really peeved about my new roommates. Contractors should have to set lures and traps when they demolish a building—not just let their mess run to the neighbor's house.
