You Might Be Bored If…

You Know You're From Seattle When…

You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown, and you can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian
All I care about it that it's not Starbucks and doesn't taste like ass

You feel guilty throwing an aluminum can in the trash. true

You use the words “sun break” and know what it means. who doesn't know what that means?

You know more than 10 words to describe a cup of coffee. This is just like the general Washington one, apparently.

You know what a dry cappuccino is. How is this different from the last one?

You obey all traffic laws EXCEPT “keep right except to pass.” Leave that up to the bus driver.

You know at least eight people who work for either Microsoft or Boeing. Not anymore. But I WISH I knew 8 people from Microsoft who wanted to invest in a movie

You invite twice as many people as you really want to a party since only half will actually show up. Not exactly. I invite as many people as I want at a party AND only half of them show up

You know what Lutefiske is.It's fish, right?

You personally know someone from Alaska. I've MET people from Alaska but I don't hang out with any of them

You consider floating bridges a pain in the butt, not an engineering marvel. ANY bridge has traffic problems

You know how to pronounce “Sequim”, “Puyallup” and “Issaquah.” Yes

You have roots in Oregon, Idaho or Montana, but wanted a high paying job. I bet I would be getting paid the same in those places since I don't get paid much

You've tried to get a job in Alaska, especially a summer job only. Not in the least

You think skiing always means being covered from head to toe, on snow or water. Eh?

You know at least three Microsoft burnouts, of which two are millionaires. Again, I wish

You use more than 5 words to order a cup of coffee. “I want to order an unleaded, double, short, skinny, wet cappuccino with a shot of Amaretto please.” De Ja Vous

A “designer” wardrobe comes from REI, Eddie Bauer, Lands End, and Birkenstock. Ew

You consider it a sunny day if the sun is visible at some point of the day. Ha ha. Laugh it up, fuzzball

You've been “snow” skiing in the RAIN more than in the snow. I hate skiing

When you're discussing rainforests and volcanoes, you're NOT talking about Hawaii. Aight

You Remember the Kingdome Yes…sniff

You have tried to forget about WTO Not at all. It was a great demonstration of democracy! It's not our fault the fuzz got happy with their night sticks

You know how BLUE the skies are here compared to Eastern Washington. ok

The guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like Phyllis Diller is really a trans named Eva Destruction that used to play with Hole. Sure

Your car insurance costs more because your neighbors don't have any! N/A

Your mayor is straight, 1/2 your friends are gay, the man who delivers your mail has a bumper sticker that reads “when they pry it from my cold dead fingers….”, and your Burger World drive thru order taker was a computer millionaire last week. Weak

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Seattle.

Things are good. It's Thursday which means there is only one more work day this week. Meep and I made good connections this week. We are making progress on our zombie things. We are editing Meep’s short tonight (and hopefully getting done with it soon. I think it's gonna be really good!) and tomorrow night we are having a company meeting (Tangent Productions!) over beer (which is the best way to HAVE a company meeting). So basically, a good week for film is a good week for me. And it's been a good week for film. It's still hard to get over my increasing dislike of my day job. Especially when it's busy here. But if, in a few years, trailers for Plight are bombarding your televisions, Meep and I are on an international promotional tour, and we are featured in Fangoria and on Best Week Ever, it will all be worth it.
Speaking of Tangent Productions, Meep worked like crazy last night and we now have some semblance of a website up! And after this weekend, it will be content rich, as well. Check it out, yo!
