Feb 16 Roma commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Don't Worry, Dating's Hard for Everyone.
37/Roseanne: But I disagree that you'll definitely meet a lot of people doing things you like. My interests are: going to museums and galleries, the theatre, independent/world cinema, reading about history, walking, body pump, pilates, and travelling. Men in their 30s hate all of these things, except travel.

Surefire way to meet a man in his 30s: find a wizard who will turn you into a phone. Men in their 30s love their phones. When a man in his 30s is looking at his phone (which would be 24 hours a day if he didn't have to sleep), he is thinking "God, you are so beautiful. I love you so much. I love holding you. I never wannna let you go."

LW: I go to the gym, malls, grocery stores & there's no men there. . . . How do I meet professional men and approach them?

Dan: No men at the gyms, malls, or grocery stores? Did radical feminists kill all the guys?

"there's no men there" is likely code for...

"I go to the gym, malls, grocery stores and, while I see a lot of guys at those places, very few of them are tall, attractive & professional-looking, and the few tall, attractive & professional-looking guys I do see don't approach me and I'm too scared to approach them."

If this is what us gals are supposed to salivate over on Valentine’s Day, I remain disappointed in Hollywood’s expectations of women.

I don't know how successful this particular movie will turn out to be, but it's my understanding that the the book it's based on was very successful, and so was the first movie and the book that film was based on. So apparently, a lot of women are salivating over this kind of stuff (just like a lot of women were all hot for the Twilight books and movies.)

Jan 5 Roma commented on Link's Ridership Continues to Surge.
Link's feeling at this moment? To quote the great Kool G Rap: "You said I sucked, instead I succeeded."

Dear Link,

I'm glad you've succeeded. I ride you every day to work from Rainier Beach to the ID station and I love not driving my car to work. And less people driving cars to work -- or driving cars in general -- the better.

But you did suck at designing and building the Rainier Beach station.

Jan 2 Roma commented on Grading the Seahawks' Season: Even with Win Over the 49ers and a Playoff Berth, the Hawks are Merely Average.
The Hawks may win their first playoff game, at home against the Lions, but I don't see them going beyond that this year. As I noted in a previous post, each year since they won the Super Bowl has been a step down and I think that this year, unfortunately, will continue that downward trajectory. I'm just glad they won the Super Bowl once. The team I grew up with, the Vikings, made it there four times but never won.

identify as a poly straight cis white guy in my mid 30s

I'm curious about the "identify as...white" part. If both parents are white, can you identify as other than white (that's what Rachel Dolezal did, and she got a lot of flak for it.) If neither parent is white, can you identify as white?

What if one parent is white and one black, as in the case of Obama? Can you identify as either white or black in that case?

2013 season: Hawks win the Super Bowl
2014 season: Hawks make it to the Super Bowl, but lose
2015 season: Hawks don't make it to the Super Bowl, losing the the NFC championship game

Notice the trajectory? One notch downward each year

I think this year will continue the pattern with the Hawks not making it to the NFC championship game (that actually would've happened last year if the Viking's kicker hadn't blown that 27-yard field goal.)
Dec 26, 2016 Roma commented on George Michael Is Dead.
I wasn't a huge George Michael fan, but I did love "Faith." It shares a church organ-y intro with a great song, "Let's Go Crazy", from another artist we lost in 2016.
