my confession: I regularly jaywalk and ignore crosswalk signals

hi there. It is not yet five o' clock, but it is already dark outside. The newly painted Space Needle is starting to glow above the flashing lights of Seattle Center. I think the rain has stopped for the day.

I stayed up late last night finishing How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents and writing some answers for my Nutritional Epidemiology midterm. I tried to work on it at Solstice after Brendan left to read to the kids, but didn't get much done. When I went back inside, I sat at one of the larger tables where some older guy had set up his laptop computer using all sorts of tools. By tools, I mean something like a pliers, but not exactly. He also had a regular-sized keyboard plugged into it and seemed to be having troubles. He kept complaining about the music and the lack of hot women coming to sit by him.

I was a little more productive after I moved somewhere else and plugged in my computer.

Today I went to class and the professor was late. I felt redeemed for my first day tardiness. We got our first papers back and I was pleased with the results of not over-editing.

After classes, I went to work downtown and now it's dark. Maybe I'll try to hear Dan Savage read from his new book. Or maybe I'll just go home since I had to get up early today.


I attatch a keyboard to my laptop because it is much more comfortable. but i never take mine anywhere. and don't talk about chicks.

Dan savage is great, haha.

motion to declare a writ of boys will be boys

Yeah. I can see the comfort factor, but he seemed to have a lot of attachments. Which pretty much kills the portability angle. The weirdest part was that the whole thing kept falling apart. I sort of wish i hadn't been trying to ignore him so that I could bettter understand the situation.

The excerpt from Dan Savage's book in this week's The Stranger was pretty good. Yet I'm too lazy to go to the reading... That, and I'd feel obligated to buy a book. And I have too much to read right now. I thought it would be fun to get a copy for my conservative friend in New York, but he declined.
jaywalking is dangerous!
yeah. I like to live on the edge!
I'm glad to see that my formula for success in UW english classes is working out for you as well as it always did for me.

Did you read the excerpt from Dan Savage's book in this week's Stranger? I think it's good, I sort of want it.

You always know about the good readings.
I did read the excerpt and thought it was pretty good, too.

The only reason that I knew about that reading was from the Stranger. It was the Stranger Suggests Item for Thursday. But I didn't go.

Foolish, I know, defying the will of the great and powerful Stranger.
