Where in White Center? What buffet? I lived in WC for four years and I know the area quite well. I know there’s a Dollar Tree in Burien but that is really far. I live as close to White Center as I do downtown, but the new-ish bus schedule makes things a little difficult (as I’m sure you’re well aware). I really like White Center. It has a bad rep, but it’s actually awesome. I think it’s just that the “normal” Seattle white folks are afraid of the “ethnic” community. Capitol Hill has way more crime that WC, but when I moved to WC, everyone I knew freaked out and told me to carry mace.

That place has been there for so long and has always been that way.
They have a Google Plus page with pictures of the vacuum robots! One of them appears to be a vacuum robot of Raphael the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
I am glad you commented because I was thinking “No one is going to believe me about the vacuum store that loves robots and Jesus.” You probably pass it on the bus all the time.
blownopen replied to your post: There is a vacuum shop in my neighborhood that is… There was a vacuum place like this in my town as well… maybe Jesus does have stock in Hoover.
I was going to say that Jesus would be more of a Dyson man, but that’s too flashy. Then I thought he might like Dirt Devils, but they have an evil name. Hoover probably makes the most sense.
Do it. I am peer pressuring you.
You know what? I think I will. The issue I had before was that I had so many issues surrounding my job search and I couldn’t decide on the scope of the story. Then I got really sick and just stopped working on it. I still have the file and I wrote over 90,000 words!
I think I might start on the horribleness of my job hunt. Mine was…unusually bad. There were times where I was the problem, but honestly, probably 50% of the time I had weird interviewers.
Queen anne is terrible with it. Especially on weekends.
Ugh! I worked on Lower Queen Anne for a year and a half and I never had a problem but that’s probably because I had a car at the time and didn’t walk around the streets there much. I currently live at a big intersection in the south end of Seattle, and more than 50% of the times I walk to the main strip in my neighborhood, I get honked at or yelled at. And ugh, if I sit on a bar stool in certain places, I am bound to get my ass grabbed. From what I gather, it’s difficult to be a woman with a big booty if you live south of Northgate.
Sidenote: I think you and I and Agnes would make a good hangout group? Maybe I’m being weird.
I know right? I’ve been looking and yeah no. NO really no.
I just saw one that boasted rents from $950-$1200 a month for “low-income people.”
And then another one for “very-low” income that was $850 a month.
I laughed at my screen.
If you can afford $1000+ in rent, why would you be looking at this site in the first place? Ugh.
They call $30k a year “extremely low.” I’m starting to remember why I got frustrated with this website.
There is also a lady who sits on cardboard and wears shopping bags on her feet. She will also get several dozen copies of The Stranger to sit on.

That doesn’t happen to be teh lady who sets down cardboard and puts bags on her hands before she sits down? And who will yell at you if you sit in her seat or get too close?
No, but…I think I know who you are talking about. Are you talking about the lady who wears a mask and a garbage bag? Or the lady who wears gloves and steals paper towels?
The gloves-and-paper-towels lady is really, really nice. Not sure about the mask and garbage bag lady.
nudiemuse replied to your post: I also hate it when people ask baristas to mix in…
I KNOW right? I saw that for the first time and wanted to kick the lady in the ass.
I never thought that anyone would ask for that until my brief stint as a barista, but I’ve been in line behind a few people asking for it. It’s like asking a waiter to put salt in your soup or something. I just think it’s weird. Also, I’ve never seen anyone ask for a drink with sugar…it’s always sugar substitute.
I think that says something. I don’t know what, but SOMETHING.
nudiemuse replied to your post: I admit I’ve done NO research on this at all, but…
Nope it’s going to be run by the state liquor board. They will be using state owned sites that were formerly liquor stores. But not until next year because the liquor board hasn’t met yet to decide. LOL WA doin it wrong.
Ah, okay. That’s…really weird.
I always wear camis with ON dresses. My boobs will not be confined by their clothing.
That is smart. I should get some camis. I don’t usually wear them. The dress was cute and otherwise fit, but yeah, my boobs don’t seem to like their dresses for some reason.
I am hoping I can bus home without anyone trying to talk to me about it. It makes me anxious. Last year on election day…awful.
It makes me anxious, too. I actually initiated conversation! Or rather, I butted in. I was in the back and there were three people with their smartphones looking at different sites and I couldn’t help overhearing some of their conversation. Then I HAD to know the specifics, so I asked.
Yeah. He does that ALL over the place. I have seen him get booted off of a lot of buses.
I once mentioned him while I was talking to a bunch of people who rode the bus regularly, and no one had any idea who I was talking about. I’m glad someone out there knows! I used to work near the border between the International District and Pioneer Square and he and I were at the same bus stop a few times a week. He would start fights with people out of absolutely nowhere. Once he started a fight with me downtown because he saw me looking at the schedule for a bus that only ran on weekdays and I think it was a Saturday. I just backed off, but some people don’t have that sense.
