it was a hobo spider, but since we don't have the offender it's pretty much hypothesis.
apparently it's a small proportion of the population that actually gets the nasty ulcer thingie that we all worry about so much.
other than that, it's kind of like having the flu... fever aching, sore joints etc...
and one damnably itchy arm.
I was thinking about buying a car in Oregon to save myself the exorbitant Washington state sales tax. Does anyone know any reason why I shouldn't do this? If I buy a car from a dealer and bring it up here, am I just going to get hit with the sales tax when I register it? I don't have a problem with paying monorail and RTA taxes (since I voted for both), but when you're talking almost 9% on top of the price of the car, I'm looking at $1000 in sales taxes. Feedback?
Has anyone seen the tiny clay flag-draped caskets lined up on the brick plaza at the Federal Building downtown? There are hundreds, and they're each no bigger than a cell phone or so. I'm having trouble posting the photo of it. I'm wondering who did it...it's really beautiful.
So yesterday whilst the Hillcrest market burned, a firefighter went into the starbucks across the street to use the restroom. He was told because he didnt purchase anything, he was not going to be able to use the toilet.
This same firefighter went down the block to Coffee Messiah, told us his story, and was allowed free access to the restroom. This is good, right? Even Better, Coffee Messiah stayed open to the wee hours of the morning, allowing access to the restroom, as well as gave free coffee to the people helping out in fighting the fire.
If ever you had a reason to quit drinking starbucks, now is the time. Reclaim your tastebuds, & support Coffee Messiah!
Did anyone else go to this? What'd you think? It was a bit of a floating Cha Cha Lounge, but probably the most fun event I've been to all year. Do you know of any other cruises coming up that are cheap with indie bands and DJs?
Okay, to piggyback on the other question...
I have a car. Currently it is in my father's name due to auto insurance (I'm still a rider on his policy.) When my current plates expire in 2006 is about the time I am moving to Washington. Here's my question: my father is planning on signing the car over as a one time gift in order to do well with Missouri state taxes. How will this impact me in regards to Washington?
Is anyone going to see Jazzanova this saturday at Chop Suey 9pm? If any one you are into downtempo or acid jazz, I highly reccomend going, it's only 12 bucks.
Hello there! My name is Yesenia and I just moved to the wonderful city of Seattle a few weeks ago from Tri-cities, WA.
I love it here more and more everyday. But I haven't made as many friends as I've wanted to.
I'm 18, energetic, fun, smart, and a bit quirky at times. If anyone out there wants to hang out and be friends...that would be GREAT!
Or if anyone just has any ideas on how to meet people here, I would really appreciate it!
I'm visiting Seattle in early August for a few days (Aug 5-10 or 11) with my family, but they will be driving home starting the 9th, and I will be staying until the 10th or 11th by myself (I'm 18). Anyway, I was hoping there was someone here willing to clue me in to some local entertainment, how to use the public transit system (including the best way to get back to the airport!), and any other interesting places or events to check out that wouldn't necessarily show up in the tour guide (you guys know how those work...not guaranteed to be the best source of local info). I'd appreciate any advice or help-- I like to shop (funky-punky/Goth kindsa stuff), I like going to shows (loud music), I'm into just wandering around fun places where I can meet interesting people. On second thought, I'm not sure that that previous sentence actually gave any distinctive information. :-)
Please reply here or on AIM: freezedrieddaisy
Thanks again, and I appreciate any help anyone can give me!
