Is there a reason the headline didn't use the word "Whatcom?" As a rule, I don't read "articles whose headlines start with the words "this," or "you."
Jun 17, 2015 Limey Rick commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Family From Hell.
Is your brother older or younger than you? And how old are you? Because if he is older than you, and you are younger than 40, I would be honored to stand in for him. My brother has recently shown his colors as a jerk, and I know the pain it causes, but that's okay - on your wedding day it doesn't matter. What matters is the people who love you, and will support you and your bride-to-be in every way they can. There's a great Polish saying I learned: "Not my circus, not my monkeys." Your bigoted family will always be related to you, but their bigotry is not your problem. You don't have to sort it out. You be the best person you can be, and let them be the monkeys they want to be. Not your circus. Not your monkeys. Congratulations on finding someone with whom you are ready to commit.

I should point out that the lousy sausages were 8 bucks, as were the pizzas (which were actually sort of not bad.) They also had souvenir 32 oz plastic cups, which they were selling for $2 - but no fountain drinks to put in them. I reread that last sentence and think I must have imagined it, but I saw the guy in front of me buy two of them. Empty. Dry. That sure isn't SafeCo field.

Any thoughts on why the concessionaire had only four things for sale, and they ran out out of those halfway through the last game? Hot dogs, sausage flavored hotdogs, and two flavors of pizza...that's it? And only half the stalls were open, so people wandered away instead of standing in long lines. Do they not want to make money selling stuff?

I clicked on this hoping it would be a showcase of various fonts. Rats. You should totally write that article. Maybe get an actual metal head to help out.

He is hoping that if you get stoned with the downstairs neighbor, it could turn into a three way. He may be sleeping with her already, but if not he wants to.

You can feel violated if that is how you actually feel about it. But you don't have to feel violated. You can feel turned on by it if you feel that way, or squeaked out but not violated, or whatever you actually feel, without overthinking it. If you feel violated, ask her never to do it again. Feel free to change your mind about that later, though and let her know.
Apr 22, 2014 Limey Rick commented on Wage Theft Is Not Just a Concern of Low-Income Workers.
Wage theft? Really? From the description in the clipping that doesn't sound like wage theft to me. Can I call it wage theft if I don't get a promotion because my employer decides they don't need anyone at the next pay/responsibility level up above me?
Mar 22, 2014 Limey Rick commented on The Jazz Diaspora: Get Hip To Jutta Hipp.
No one was reading the music blog, LineOut, so they dumped all those crappy posts in here with the rest of slog. The good thing about it is it has reduced my compulsion to open up slog and check in at odd hours, knowing that if I do check in I will be greeted by a bunch of tripe about music I am not interested in.
Jul 23, 2013 Limey Rick commented on Seattle Is a (Relative) Bastion of Upward Mobility.
Isn't it actually more like: If you were born into a Seattle family in which the parents made less than $25,000 a year, AND you still live here AND you're 45 there's a 10 percent chance that you now have family earnings of above $100,000 a year
......As the ads for gold investments always say: "Past performance is no guarantee of future results."
