V, Very neat pic../.
Has the building boom tapered out yet ?

Also, is Smith Tower still standing ?
That building has/had the most unique elevators ( )
when I visited there away back when.

Thanks!

The Smith Tower is just to the right (cropped out of the frame) of the Columbia Tower, the tall black building on the right of the picture.

Twitter sized update:

I won the oyster slurping championships again tonight! That makes ten years in a row without losing a single round.

More info later. :-P

I posted a weather report a little while back, I said it might be 88 degrees. Well, 89 was the record high for this date in this area, and the temperature rose to 94 degrees. Hot. I was extremely happy to be two cars from the bow on the ferry during the hottest part of the day. Though I couldn't feel the snow, Mount Rainier's glaciers made the trip cooler nonetheless.

This is Mount Baker to the north. Farther away, not as tall, but that is still a LOT of snow!

The Mrs is interested in moving to Seattle. She's never been there...I have, and know its evil.

That was 7 years ago and a wife and a world ago...I would enjoy going back to see if my opinion of the city has changed.

It had a lot of what I like in a city...along with things like aggressive and obnoxious people. Not Philly aggressive, which is neat, but more like NY and LA aggressive. And it was horribly expensive, though it probably wouldn't feel expensive if I lived there. I think the biggest problem there is that you fuckers drink too much coffee.

Want to see a major American city stop dead in its tracks? Take away all the coffee from Seattle...shit, just take a tenth of it.

Didn't Seattle invent the hipster? If that is the case, everyone there should be shot for letting that happen.

But, just a little bit.

Same headline, different year.

eta:

I went back looking for a thread dedicated to this topic and found none. But I did find my first entry for this topic and it's in this thread. In it I talk about being the returning champion of the 2004 contest... That makes this year the twelfth consecutive year of eating free oysters faster than those other people.
