I would suggest going to see a show of some sort - Pacific Northwest Ballet will soon be doing Sleeping Beauty & Giselle later in the year which are both beautiful. The Lion King will be at the Paramount Theater in March (I saw this in NYC and it was amazing). It looks like a lot of the theaters do free Saturday tours which might be fun to see, although I've never done it.

It takes no more time for you to type your name & address correctly than it would to slap it up with incorrect capitalization, typos, and bad punctuation.
It does, however, take time for the person who gets to clean up the data to fix your mistakes and the database errors which result from your laziness and/or affected typing style.
Feel free to type your name however you wish in your text messages and emails with your friends, but when you're typing information into a page which might be used by underfunded non-profit organizations just use your brain and type correctly. Your cute-ness needlessly increases administrative costs and directly decreases the amount of your donation (in the case that you're typing this into an online donate page).
Make our lives easier please.
The intelligent humans who have to deal with shit you don't think twice about.

one of the directors of the LEGO movie is from Everett, so that's another great reason to support that movie!

I'm so sick of them saying that children need the strength and discipline that a father gives and the love and nurturing from a mother. That is so sexist! Mothers can be disiplinarians and no parent ever showed love and nurturing like my father did. Having two parents who are women doesn't mean that a child will not know strenght, and having two parents who are men doesn't mean the child will not know love.

commented on Don't Donate to the Salvation Army ≠ Don't Donate to Charity
I disagree with this. When I mentioned the post to a Salvation Army employee I know they said that they have the policy of never refusing service to anyone because of sexual orientation. I believe him. I think that the examples given are horrible cases of a prejudiced employee refusing service and their managers not intervening. In every company or organization are going to be horrible people who discriminate (Seattle PD anyone?). I think instead of calling on people to not donate to an organization who does do amazing things, call on them to fire those employees who refuse service to gay or lesbian people.
