April 1 is officially “don’t tell me anything important” day. If you do tell me something important, I won’t believe you. It’s too tiring to spend the entire day weighing each piece of information to determine whether or not it’s a prank. So I’ve decided to make this annoying “holiday” a little easier to get though by disbelieving everything I’m told today.
If you have something true that you want me to know, please save it for tomorrow.
(And no, I’m not really as grumpy as that may make me sound. I’m actually pretty happy today. I’m just weary of the seemingly endless stream of unamusing attempts at April fools pranks. There have been a couple of good ones, but they’re few and far between…)
Yesterday was an amazingly beautiful day that brought throngs of people to Green Lake and Gas Works Park. Today wasn’t so bad either, though it was a bit breezy. It’s almost as if mother nature is teasing us with what could be…
I had to run an errand on the way in to work this morning, so I caught the bus at the University Street tunnel station instead of the Westlake Station as usual. They’re only a few blocks apart, but the atmosphere is noticably different. While people of all types use each of the stations, the mix differs. University Street tends to have more people in suits than any of the other stations, for example. Westlake has a lot of tourists. And in baseball season, International District Station gets overrun by Mariners fans. Variety is fun.
