maly threading the needle

Community newbie

Well, after watching bham while I lived up there, now I'm down in Mill Creek and figured that seattle was a little closer to my new home. I grew up in Edmonds, so I'm very familiar with the area, but not so familiar with a lot of the locals save for my group of friends from high school (which is years behind me now)
Anyways, I was prompted to post because I've heard of a few "stitch n' bitch" style activities going on through this community and I was hoping to get in on some of that crafting action. I'm starting my own craft night at my place on Wednesdays (I mostly do costuming, especially now during the Halloween season), but I also knit, do beadwork, and do tons and tons of other artsy/crafty things. I'm always on the lookout for new friends to work on art with, and I've had so much fun at craft nights in the past that I'm hoping I can get to know more new people. :)
If you're curious about the kinds of crafts I work on, I think this is probably a pretty good indicator.

(no subject)

I bought tabs for the Battlewagon today. They determined that my plates were seven years old and I had to get new ones. I've been licensing vehicles in this state for fifteen years and never heard this before. I'd've had to pay an extra $20 to keep my number. Instead, I'll have to reregister all my parking permits.
What a pita.

need witnesses

I know this is a long shot, but I figured I'd try anyway.

We need witnesses of an accident on South 348th in Federal Way, specifically at 202 S. 348th which happened between 3 and 3:30pm on Tuesday, October 5th. The car hit was a maroon-red 2004 Hyundai Elantra and it was hit by a newer '04 or '05 gold Toyota Tundra.

The woman driving the Tundra was illegally driving down the median lane when she hit the front driver's side corner of the Elantra, who was attempting to turn left out of a driveway and 3/4 of the way into the median when she hit him.

The driver of the Elantra was given a ticket, but he feels he was not at fault, and the same police officer who gave the ticket told the driver's boss that both parties were at fault, but no one saw the officer give the Tundra driver a ticket. Thanks to the slowness of the Federal Way Justice System, the police report will not be released for a couple of days.

The driver of the Elantra is hoping to contest the ticket, as the woman was obviously going fast enough down the median lane to total the Elantra. If she had been legally driving down the median at a safe speed, she would have been able to stop instead of hitting him.

We possibly have a couple of witnesses, but there were many more at the scene who neglected to stop-ESPECIALLY those who stopped to allow the Elantra to cross into the median lane. So please, if you saw this accident, contact us!

Any legal help would also be much appreciated, as the Elantra driver is without a vehicle which is necessary for his job until the insurance companies settle.
