    I think neck pillows in flight rock. It’s the people wearing them as they walk from the parking lot, into the terminal, down to the gates, and sitting at an eatery that give me amusement. Perhaps I’m easily amused. I’d love it if you folks would post some pics of yourself walking around wearing yours.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    1) stuck in city street traffic watching the Uber driver horrendously attempt to parallel park and me not noticing until he gets out of the car that he parked in front of and blocking the parking garage exit ramp

    2) the construction site across the street where the sign read "1 day since last lost work time accident"

    Police say an armed 41-year-old man was shot by a woman as he was trying to break into her home early Thursday.

    It happened in the 600 block of Riverside Drive in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood.

    Police say the homeowner called 911 just after midnight to report that she had just shot a man who was trying to break into her home.

    The woman is believed to have shot the man from the home's roof while he was outside trying to break in.

    When officers arrived, they found a man behind the home with a gunshot wound to the shoulder and a handgun on the ground nearby.

    The homeowner, who was still on the roof when officers arrived, continued to hold the burglar at gunpoint for at least an hour until police could coax her down.

    Once the woman with the rifle came down and it was safe for medics to come into the area, the suspect was taken to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries.

    Police found multiple bullet holes in the exterior of the home. They are believed to have been caused by gunshots fired by the burglar after he was shot by the homeowner.

    Officers interviewed and released the woman as the investigation continues.

    Police say they arrested two other men who fled the scene in a car as officers arrived. Police booked the 38-year-old driver and his 24-year-old passenger into the King County Jail

    A man went on vacation, entrusting the care and feeding of his cat to his friend who also happened to live next door. A few days into his trip, his phone rang. His friend and cat keeper was on the other end. “Hey, man. I’m really sorry, but your cat got up on the roof and fell off and died. I thought they were always supposed to land on their feet, but I guess yours didn’t get the memo.” The man was not only extremely distraught over the death of his favorite feline, but irate with his friend for the manner in which he had broken the news. “Don’t you know you should never give someone incredibly bad news like that?! You should have prepared me . . . built up to it! Call me one day and tell me my cat’s on the roof—and then the next day you can tell me he fell off—and then the next day you can tell me he died! But never, NEVER give anyone bad news like that!!”

    A few days later, his friend called back. “Hey, man. Your mama’s on the roof . . .”

    I saw one this morning obviously realize his customer was on the other side of a 4 lane wide one way street in downtown Seattle.

    He threw such a hard crazy Ivan across all the lanes to get to the other side that he ended up fully perpendicular nose into to the curb of the bus lane that he was now blocking (as well as half the adjacent lane).

    Never mind though because he put his 4-ways on when he then attempted to back out into traffic having collected his fare.

    Two things seen for the first time ever today at a cafe I stopped at for lunch.

    First, the credit card receipt had three tip lines, one for "kitchen" one for "server" and one for "entertainment". I'm sure I'll see an online article soon enough telling me I need to tip kitchen and server 20% each. No entertainment, so that was easy at least.

    Then go to use the bathroom. It had a shower with a locking gate across it. I'm guessing this is where they waterboard the customers who don't leave enough tip? I got the hell out of there.....




    Edit.. Why are all my photos showing up sideways now? Fucking I-phone

    Here's my tip, you divvy it up. And probably less than normal because i hate that shit.

    So she heard a burglar and climbed on the roof?

    Nope--they were Nordic types. Should have been in shorts and tank tops.

    I'll be a little amazed if she didn't fall in.

    Fake presidential seal projected behind trump during his speech had Russian-style two-headed eagle clasping golf clubs and cash. Appropriate.

    I volunteered to help set up at the local library’s used book sale today. I was the only man and only person under 60 there. I shlepped a lot of boxes and stayed the hell of of the way of a lot of cranky old bitches. Scored a great set of Steinbeck books.

    I've totally done that just to get out of my head.

    So many great conversations.
