Mayoral Debate

The Seattle library has fantastic events. I mean, really. Normally, I find library events boring, tedious and asking myself the question, “How many gardening talks do we need to have??

United State’s First Food Forest: Going Back to Our Roots?

The first time I heard about this, I was walking around Capitol Hill’s infamous Volunteer Park. “What do you mean by an all edible garden? The leaves, everything?” I had never heard of such an idea before. It seemed to me, a naive person about what you can and cannot eat in the forest, that … Continue reading

Seattle’s Town Hall: Daniel Brook & Peter Blair Henry

A few weeks ago, I was listening to an NPR segment discussing Leopold somebody. Alright, I was half listening. The story teller mentioned that lectures were the entertainment back in the day. Instead of movies, Twitter, Facebook, T.V., etc. A light bulb went off. For as much as I love discussion, for the life of … Continue reading

Help Little Seattle Ob Fight Blood Cancer!

Yes, I’m calling on you now. This past November I decided to do something crazy. I signed up to run a marathon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Look. Some people like to jump out of planes.

A Doll’s House

Senator Patty Murray, thank you for saying this about the VAWA. Alright Seattlites! Any crazies out there who did the Polar Bear Plunge at Matthews Beach this year? I did it last year and it was a BLAST. Perhaps I’ll do it next year again and hopefully won’t have a cold then. 😛 I was … Continue reading

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 10 years to get … Continue reading

Thinking About the New Year

Well, I don’t know about you guys, but since the apocalypse my life has been awesome. I mean, I knocked those zombies out. 😛 Look, we all knew nothing was going to happen. The craze of the Mayans “predicting the world ending” was ridiculous. Seattle Pockets posted what the Mayans really predicted and I, for … Continue reading
