Knowing Jonah, he'd probably be absolutely okay with that movie treatment. As long as he always came in with a Rush song playing in the background.

Oh your gods, don't go to Olympia. Just... don't.

Surly kitchen employees sliding pizzas at me across a table, something akin to food poisoning, overly acidic sauces, terrible service in general, just... don't.

And 5 makes a valid point. Should my polyamorous friends get paid as much as my monogamous self? Sure, they don't live with their other partners, but they do share expenses from time to time. Does that count? Or is that just a dating-related expense? Should they get an increase since they'll have more dating-related expenses, since they're dating more people?

Definitely need a study.

It depends. Are they an active bisexual? Or just have swung both ways in the past? Or just *could* go either way?

I mean, technically, Dan, you and I both are, since we've gone both ways at some point in our lives. Are we now?

We might need to get UW involved for this study. Get a grant. Possibly finance a grad student or two for it.

Dear LW:

Gods. I know this one. Know it like the back of my hand, unfortunately.


Dude, I know, it sucks. Happened to me not that long ago, and I'm way, way older than you.

But, as the Prophet would say, "brush your shoulder off".

He did a shitty ass job of dumping you. We've all been there. Take notes, don't do it to someone when you're in the other position, that's all we can ask. And not everybody is a complete jackass, I promise.

Ugh, union and 22nd is the nearest?

Thank heavens my guy lives nearby.

I'm just glad they're leaving the neighborhood where I work. I'd rather have Tabella back, to be honest. At least it was a known hive of scum and villainy.

@18 Yes, I should spend over an hour, each way, going there. (60 to the 27). Brilliant idea.

My nearest non-striking grocery store is the co-op at 16th and Madison (which, other than the schlep up to 19th, doable, 30ish minutes each way), except for, well, I can't necessarily shop there, since with my schedule, I don't necessarily know when I'm going to be able to eat, so fresh things, or "make your own lunch/dinner" is, while a nice idea, occasionally not doable.

So I can MAYBE go to Met. market, I can blow a couple hours, right?

And what are my striking friends gonna do? I totally back 'em, they're right, they're underpaid, treated like absolute shit, and I'd happily pay more for my staples if it put more money in their pockets.

I just hope this ends quickly. And not just because there's nowhere reasonably located for me to go.

Dammit. Not only do I have to stock up, and not only does this mean I'm gonna have to pay more for my wine, but I know a lot of the people who work at my local QFC. Kinda thought this was coming when I saw the sign up saying they were accepting applications though.

Huh, yeah, 6 weeks is about right.

OKC/POF/etc are not necessarily as good if you're a straight guy as they may be for others. There's just too damn many of us.

Add in being almost 40, and, well yeah.
