commented on Lunchtime Quickie: Who's The Bigger Asshole?
She is for sure, since in addition to driving in the left lane she is filming the whole thing instead of just concentrating on her driving.

commented on Hey Transit Nerds: Metro's Considering a Day Pass Option
the other thing Metro could learn from London (which uses the same system as ORCA) is to refund the card deposit (and the value left on the card) when a tourist returns it. If London can do it, then so can Metro.
[Obviously they would check first to see that the card wasn't registered and reported as stolen before returning and $$, but that's easy enough for them to do.]

Nielsen's also makes excellent cakes, which are covered in marzipan instead of fondant.
(p.s., Nielsen's moved to lower Queen Anne around 1997, when their previous location at 3rd & Union was razed to build Benaroya Hall.)
