sometimes i remember

I don't remember anything very often. However, sometimes I remember why I moved to Seattle.
For the most part, it is because I feel safe. But safe is no cause for celebration, rather it is dull and I'm not interested in it.
It's not really the most bike-friendly place and most of the people think they are better than me. It makes me laugh, too.
However, as I battled drunk traffic on my bike on my way home from gay bingo tonight, a man ran into the street and flashed me his tata's.

it was great. I could not help but smile and laugh. it made my night and i could tell my response made his.
would this interaction happen in Manhattan? or Worchester? i think not.
everyone can suck it, cuz seattle is my home

a gift for we!

earlier this today, i signed up for owl and acorn's pay it forward exchange. the idea is that she sends me, and two others, something in the next year, and in return, i pay it forward by doing the same. so here's the game:

“The idea of the exchange is I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on this blog post requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”

so...anyone up for it? due to recent stress on my pocketbook, i'm going to limit this to u.s. people only. first three who speak up will get something fun from me!

UW Women Studies Computer Lab

The Women Studies department at the University of Washington is planning to close its undergraduate computer lab. This is one of the few places afforded to undergraduate feminist scholarship. If you agree that this is a bad thing, sign the petition!

Thank you
