Feb 20 gingersnap commented on Food News: The Latest Executive Order? Meatloaf; Plus, Brunch With Live Jazz at the Dunbar Room.
Ugh. Can't West Seattle just get a decent, normal place to get snacks? Why does everything have to have an angle, a douchey bougie angle? I just want to relax with a decent plate of food I'm not embarrassed to spend money on. Is that so much to ask?

I really have to respond to this because I stayed in a relationship WAY too long (8 years) because I thought that's what you did - you work to make it work. I finally hit the road and have been with the most wonderful person for 9 years now. Not a day goes by that I am not over*fucking*joyed that I left my past relationship. My new partner is kind, giving, makes me happy, and it's not work to make it work. If you are miserable in your relationship, if it's work to make it work, you are doing it wrong.

As a West Seattlite I am under no illusion that once the tunneling under the viaduct begins, the viaduct will not be reopening again. We are basically fucked. But hey, maybe light rail in 12 years!?!

Right now Safeway has a lot of 2 for one on pastas and soups and deals (10 for $10) on canned tuna/beans if you wanted to buy food to donate (you'll need a club card)

I can't speak to what KUOW airs as we can't get a decent signal in West Seattle, but it will be a great loss to not have shows like Sound Effect available anymore. (and Art of Jazz kicks Swing Years ass btw) We cancelled our sustaining membership for the time being until we know how this all shakes out. And digital isn't an option for us, so to say that there will be more options really isn't true if it's via a medium we don't have.

Just a side note, everyone will know when yr peeing in the lake on the swim step. The real pros make it less obvious.
Also, there's going to be a lot of pee around the swim step.

This is almost as bad as individually wrapped prunes. Almost.

Is this all the moral outrage you could muster? Or do you think midwesterners are just stupid based on "looking around at the clientele". Jebus you're an ass.

BTW, it's illegal to refuse to serve a woman a drink because she is pregnant - they teach you that in bartending school (sorry, I didn't go to one of your fancy book learnin' schools)

Also, when you are pregnant, isn't everything you ingest basically two for one?

@12 ah, progressive. Wouldn't that be nice? Might start voting for
property taxes again. Until then, no. The property tax can't be the panacea for everything.

More than half of my car tab price tag went to Sound Transit. If they add another $30-$60 for Metro, public transportation will account for at least 75% of the cost to register my car. If we all stop registering our cars, where will funding come from? This is an honest question. And it can't be from property taxes because now you are contributing even more to the rent rate hikes.

I would be happy to ride the bus, nothing would make me happier to leave the driving to someone else, but they've made it impossible because the infrastructure is so poor. There needs to be real reform and real choices, otherwise no one will get out of their cars. It's more cost effective for me to drive a car than ride a bus, pure and simple.
