Join a soccer team, even if you don't know how to play. You get to see sweaty women in shorts, and you can tell a lot about people by the way they play (if they're nice and thoughtful, they pass to everyone, etc.). Teams always go out for drinks afterwards, so you get to know people. Seriously, I know 10 couples who met that way. And they get exercise too.

Closer to home, doesn't Microsoft do this as well in Ireland and Puerto Rico?

I believe the only thing that will stop this is if everyone who has donated to KUOW calls KUOW and asks for their money back. They won't return it, and they don't have to, but it would make for an effective indicator about what KUOW donors think about their money being used to put another news station out of business.

It is a great source of sorrow that Canada is becoming more like the U.S..

Thank you Charles. The Stranger has been doing some really good articles about the strike and education. I particularly like the interviews with teachers on the picket line.

We are diminished, and should be ashamed, by the lack of support we give to teachers

Rich, white, and we send our kids to public school. Would never consider doing otherwise. And we do a lot for our 3 schools, and for the district in general (not just our kids/our schools). I know a lot of people who do the same. So there.

Very nice. I think the District is really miscalculating if they think that parents aren't going to stand with the teachers, no matter the inconvenience of school starting later.

A lot of Seattleites carry umbrellas. I do sometimes, and I have lived here for 45 years. Many Seattle friends do as well. Umbrellas keep you dry, and are kind of fun. They come in lots of different sizes, colors and shapes. Some have funny words or images on them. They get blown around in the wind, which is also kind of fun. Raincoats are not as fun, although I wear one of those once in a while too. Have a happy existence here in Seattle! I mean it. Stop worrying so much, grab your umbrella or jacket, and go out int he rain!

Shaving with an old-school double-edge razor everyday is so fun and satisfying (really) that I'll never grow a beard again...
