According to the FB event, "Poets Reading Plays Written by Poets" is happening not on the eastern shores of Lake Union but at Gallery 1412.

You haven't heard these stories before; the only time I can recall the Onion making their backroom process transparent is the funniest segment of the comedy documentary The Aristocrats.

If you haven't seen it, this C-Span program is worth watching:
I haven't seen it for 10 years (when I briefly lived in a garage in Ocean Shores, the only time I've ever had cable) but I remember it being great.

If he were SPD, I wouldn't hope for justice in my wildest dreams. Since he's just a guard, though, please tell me he can be charged with assault and sent to the slammer.

You know what the problem with "bitter...feministed single mothers" is? Penis envy.

I could see the double rainbow from West Seattle...

Walt, I can confidently infer, is of an advanced age that puts him on the other side of a cultural divide that simply *cannot* be crossed by those of us on the younger side of it. It seems that at some point in the not-too-distant past, vulgar English language had some kind of impact or connotation or... well, you'd just have to ask Walt or one of his contemporaries about it!

@3, thank you for your suggestions.

I sent in a paper application in the mail months ago. It was *never* processed.

I called the hotline with long waiting times and went through the same application with them over the phone *three* separate times, because of mistakes they made and even an accidental deletion of the application.

After overcoming error codes, the application was finally accepted, although too late to be eligible for January coverage.

But guess what? I still can't sign in to the website to select a plan, because the user ID is somehow not associated with the application the way it should be. The Technical Dept was notified of that over a week ago but has not done anything.

I called back last night, and after over a dozen tries finally got through to an operator who put me on hold after 7pm. The recording said my estimated hold time would be "88 minutes" (but they're only open until 8pm...

Finally I talked to someone again today and they said the technical department should eventually get around to looking into it, but they have no idea how long that might take. I'm supposed to give them a call in about a week if it hasn't been resolved, and that will put me right about at the deadline for getting February coverage...

From my experience so far it's been beyond disastrous. Can we haz singlepayer instead?
