We go to 5 point all the time. I'm pretty sure there's a notice on every wall and the menus that says they don't serve rude people.

I'm very nice to big bearded guy who knows my order without me asking. :)

Tonight (Saturday), come see the Academy of Burlesque's Burlesque 101 Student Graduation Recital. 9:30 PM at the West Hall in the Oddfellows building. You might even see a certain ScienceNerd (although is not the scientist in the show)!

I read "I will never vote for another Democrat in my life," and scrolled back up to check who wrote the morning news today. I wasn't surprised to see it was the only writer at The Stranger that I actively avoid reading. Thanks for pissing me off, I was having such a nice day too.

I happen to ride my bike everywhere... for exercise. I look forward to the bikes on those days I find myself without my bike and want one immediately. I don't usually take my bike on work commutes out of town, I use SoundTransit for that.

@27 I'm rather affluent. I use alternative transport for exercise and for the environment.

There were rumors at my Dentist's office of a motorcycle vs. car fatality this morning, which caused late patient arrivals and was why the Dentist was running 1/2 hour behind schedule. They say around 7:30AM. I haven't found anything about it on the internets.

Golf... Always an assured nap for me.

Oh wow, I think I might have written this. :/

I have always (as long as I can remember) considered myself ugly and fat, and here I am wearing the biggest sized clothes I have ever worn in my life. I try to tell myself that I'm healthy (I work out 3 - 4 times a week and eat sensibly), but I also want to puke whenever I see myself in the mirror. Anyway, some days are better than others, and my mood has a lot to do with just how strong the compulsion to puke is.

First time I made pot brownies, I thought I was going to die. We ate two after the first didn't seem to work yet. Then BLAM... learned my lesson.

Several years later, my mother was given a prescription to aide with her dying intestines. It is the only thing she can have that actually works. Anyway, she ate a brownie and thought she was dying too. She was actually scared away from edibles for about a year before she'd try them again. I think with some guidance, she would never have experienced that. She now knows to cut her weekly brownie into 16 pieces and eats one when needed.
