The most excitement since my neighbor shot his girlfriend






(goddamn drunks. go scream somewhere else. I'm trying to sleep.)


(thank you)

::screeching patrol cars, sirens, lights, dogs::

(oh, what the bleeding hell now?)

Looking out the window, it appears an orange pickup has crashed into the building up the block (around 100th & Greenwood), occupants are gone and Seattle's Finest are combing the neighborhood with lights and dogs like E.T. has gone missing.

Bright lights. Big city.

Washington Lotto Ad (real or fake?)

It's a little blurry, so let me help...the text says: Jeff Weaver, who ruthlessly dumped me, then tried to suck up to me after I won the LOTTO, LIVES RIGHT HERE
Blog Entry Here

EDIT: Oi. Hair splitters... you kill me.
For clarification: I understand it's an ad. It mentions that it's a student project and as a graphic designer myself, I know that I submitted a lot of things that I mocked up for an example, or a clever idea that might have been worthwhile for a company, or just for my portfolio. I mean, I never saw this around town, or even heard about it, have you? Nor does it mention it's validity. And finally, is the story real or fake? Just a clever ad idea or potentially a true story?

So, in conclusion, my bad for not being clearer.

Tarantula breeders?

I'm looking for reptile/invertebrate specific pet stores or breeders in Seattle. I'm looking to get some new tarantulas and the species that I am researching are harder to find or too agressive for my local Petco. Not to mention that I am more comfortable with family run or private breeders than Petco. I know a good shop in Oceanside, but I'd like to meet my new companions in person (well for the baboons and cobalts it doesn't matter, I won't be handling them anyways) and I especially don't want to risk shipping them in this cold weather.

Specifically I am looking for places that have

cobalt blue
king baboon
mexican redrump
mexican bloodleg (or redleg)
martinique pinktoe
costa rican zebra
or goliath birdeater

It used to be that some Bank of America ATMs would let you withdraw money in amounts of $5. Are there any of those left around here? Howabout other banks? Inquiring minds wanna know.
