Plastic-free Seattle

I meant to post this around the time of my last posts... and then I barely looked at my blog the past two months. But, um, yeah... no bad plastics in Seattle!

Plastic foam, grocery bags could end up on Seattle hit list


Latest sources of amusement

Subtly-wrong complaints, particularly applying complaints to things to which they don't quite fit:

"I don't like this street. I want a different street."

"Today sucks. I want my money back." Or, "Being female sucks. I want my money back." (Not as a reference to a sex-change operation; just in general.)

Judgmental descriptions:

"Macadamia nut pie is like pecan pie, but with better nuts." Not different nuts, better nuts.

Altering cliches:

"Her behavior was below and behind the call of duty."

"The spirit is willing, but the flesh is whiny."
