On the bus this morning, I realized I’m in all dark business attire while most people are in Seahawks colors. For the first quarter of the season or so every year, I forget. It’s a shame, since when else am I going to wear bright green to work?
New Seattle mayor. It’s a crappy gig, and I don’t know who on the Council would want it. Maybe Tim Burgess who is retiring anyway?
Then somewhat less bad is temporarily replacing that Council Member. The City Council can pick anyone for that. It seems like they’d elevate a staff member or find some city notable.
Where are people donating for hurricane relief? I gave some money to Save The Children but I don’t know if there’s something better. I’d rather be in a position where I thought taxes would cover it.
The WordPress app ate my last post, and now I’m almost at work.
Smoke? We’re dealing with smoke? With ash. With damn masks. Is this our future as a region every summer?
Any grand plans for Labor Day weekend? I don’t know when the switch from being excited about Bumbershoot to wanting to avoid the area happened. But it certainly has happened. I don’t know as many of the bands, but I know plenty. Just getting old.
Also, I will avoid the hell out of PAX.
What Michael says here. The Democratic Party needs to do a better job policing ourselves enabling rape culture. We fucked up big time in that instance. And it’s hardly a one -off.
This isn’t to say we’re as bad as or worse than the Republicans — they literally voted for a sexual assailant with a dozen known victims because he’s a sexual assailant. But we have to be a lot better.
When I unpacked after my vacation, I realized that I have 4 half-used travel size toothpaste tubes. I always buy a new one for my vacation. It feels wasteful, but I don’t want to run out on my trip. And I can’t really judge how much is left. So I think I ‘m going to just use them not on vacation.
Anyway, most Republicans hate you and want you to die for want of healthcare.
I am a rather slow reader. As such, I’m usually pretty quick to give up on a book that I don’t dig. Recently, a friend recommended a book that has taken me a week to read 2 chapters. So at what point do I bail without being an asshole?
I think I’m going to use my Democracy Vouchers this week. The problem is that the only competitive race is the one I care the least about. I’d be happy with either 8th District candidate. I don’t know, would it be strange to give one each to Grant and Mosqueda? Probably. Will I do it? Leaning toward it.
People keep wondering how far Trump will have to go before his supporters have had enough. And I think the answer is never. Trump’s supporters support him because he’s a violent criminal who supports other violent criminals. Of course racism is part of it. But they also support him because he assaults women. So there is no too racist, too violent, too criminal.
There once was a thread from Nantucket,
Whose dick was so long it could suck it.
Wait, threads don’t have a penis
Oh, well, I mean this:
This poem’s off the rails, so fuck it.
It’s good to be back in Seattle. I’ve been back a few days, but I’m still pretty exhausted.
It was great to see my family. I told my cousin that I would link to his Shopify store for all of your President Baby Hands needs.
I quite enjoyed DC. Thanks for the suggestions and such. I took the train up to New Hampshire yesterday. It’s pretty convenient if you have family to pick you up.
I live in the airport now. My flight was cancelled, but I didn’t realize it until I was already here. So now I have several hours here.
