Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

When I was 10 or 11 years old, I tagged a car with spray painted on Goosey Night. Goosey Night is what we call the evening before Halloween in New Jersey. I have felt bad about it forever. I still think about how horrible it must have been for the owner.

At least you feel guilty about it.

I once ate 6 McDonalds Cheeseburgers. Never again. I don't think I ate anything for the next 20 hours.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

Speaking of vandalism...

We moved around a lot when I was a kid, though always in the Seattle area. For a few years, when I was between the ages of 9-13, we lived in a dumpy little town about 40 minutes north of Seattle, called Bothell, which back then consisted of a cute-ish old town center, some strip malls, and some Eastern Washington rednecks who must have stumbled over the Cascades at some point (seriously, my friend and I got chased off a guy's farm with a rifle once when we were 9!). Anyway, it was a dull place for someone who had spent most of her early life in downtown Seattle, and I quickly took up the habit of expressing myself artistically on public property. Mostly by painting over the "Bot" on the sign that said "Welcome to Bothell, for a day or a lifetime!" I must have done that at least two dozen times.

I never did anything too bad though, and I only vandalized private property twice: There was a really big, fancy house on the way to school that used to put up really nice Christmas decorations -- all white icicle lights and real fir garland. They had those reindeer made of white lights that moved, and we used to put them in positions of...fornication...on the way to school. They'd put them back, and then the next morning we'd do it again. This would go on all season. I'm counting that as one.
The other time was in my teen years when a group of friends and I spray painted "RAPIST" in huge letters across the front of a guy's house. It wasn't the right thing to do, but we had a good reason, which is obvious.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

My friends and I used to build pipe bombs from PVC when we were teenagers. Never used to destroy property or cause injury. Mostly used on abandoned cars and thrown into sewer pipes for the echo.

Back on the temperature thing. I never understood why it was so difficult for people to understand that if they are cold they can put on a sweater, but if I am hot, I can't exactly walk around nude. Guess that's why I like working as a systems admin. Computer server rooms are kept nice and cold. Like TSQ, I keep the window open all winter in the bedroom with a fan going. I can't stand stagnant air.

Just to respond to this, but it's still a matter of kind of discomfort. I don't find heat and cold to hit me the same way. When things are way too hot, I'm usually just tired and out of it. When things are cold, it can be almost painful and the whole time my body is fighting to stay warm. Just, I realize that cold can be mitigated easier, but I find heat more tolerable.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

I don't find heat more tolerable therefore it would behoove you to mitigate the cold since it's obviously not as easy for me to mitigate the heat without causing a social faux pas.

Back on topic:

I made BBQ chicken in the oven tonight. After removing the chicken from the pan I drank the yummy, greasy juices in the bottom of the pan.

tsq, you lived in Bothell?! It's grown a bit, though Woodinville is where the party is now. And if you don't want to go across the lake, try Bellevue.

^Hahaha! I've actually been through Bothell pretty recently, and it's hardly recognizable! My sisters and dad all still live in Seattle, so I'm out that way every year. And my mom works in Woodenville! At Little Bit, do you know it? She lives just outside Duval in the Cascade foothills.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

I'm just interested in where, specifically, the first Starbucks ever constructed is located. I did hear it's in Seattle or thereabouts. If any of you Seattleianites can point the way, much appreciatings. Because I'm there, in six months.

^The first Starbucks is in Pike Place Market, though most Seattleites --not Seattllianites -- just call it the Public Market. The Starbucks is on the upper level, though as far as I know they don't sell drinks and never have, just beans. The Market's a fun place to go. You can get the best molasses cookie you've ever had in your life there.

I think I've seen it. But I know the Woodinville Target quite well, as well as Molbaks and the Ezells Chicken. I'll look for Little Bit.
I'm a Kirkland girl, myself, though.

And MLB, if you've never been to Pike Place... there's so much there. Besides Starbucks.
