    I think at any restaurant where there is a line and very few tables, it’s courteous to not take a seat until you have your food. Otherwise, people further up in line are going to get their food and have no where to sit. It’s also courteous to leave as soon as you’re done so people who just got their food have somewhere to sit.

    The Besalu staff might be the slowest, most inefficient crew I’ve ever encountered which surprises me because they are frequently busy. But maybe they are moving inefficiently on purpose like a metered on ramp to the highway.

    Boars Head makes pastrami seasoned turkey breast which is pretty tasty.

    The Hillbilly QFC was confusing to me when I went once. I thought I’d reached the back of the store but there were checkouts there. The fancy QFC also confuses me because they peel the skins off of the onions before selling them. But it’s walking distance so it wins.

    Modem is Technicolor TC8305C. I tested the number on my imac which is also on the wireless network and it’s: dl 53.20, ul 11.37, ping 10. I have no idea why the DL on the ipad would be so low, but it usually has a pretty choppy connection.

    We got this modem/router combo last year because we were having choppy connections on all of our devices. Not two weeks later I kept getting voice mails from Comcast’s automated service that our modem was out of date and to upgrade it. I ignored it because I figured their signals got crossed somehow.

    Sometimes I lay awake at night and wonder how many hours of my life have been lost to being on the phone with Comcast. But in this case I think the issue is my ipad and not them.

    A couple of years ago I got garbanzo flour (bob’s red mill brand) at the Ballard Fred Meyer but I didn’t see any yesterday. They also didn’t have any farro which is what I was there to buy.

    I did a quick search for the poster on the UW website and came up with this:

    +1 for Golden Beetle.

    On a side note, I’ll give a moment of silence for your friendzoned pal.

    There are short Metallica songs? I loved the pianist and his “whatevah, I’ll wear a baby blue sateen jacket if I want” attitude.

    Also my first impression of them was that WOW they got old. I also imagined James saying “suck it” to Katy Perry at the end. Her “dark” performance seemed silly compared to these guys who have been doing it forever.

    The show was much funnier with the mental additions I made.

    Also, please stop parading Smokey Robinson and Ringo Starr around. The Millenials beg of you.

    It would have made my night if Kendrick Lamar stole Kacey Musgrave’s mic to sing “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”. Who thought it was a good idea to follow up such an intense performance with a cute country girl in light up boots? She’s good and it wasn’t fair to her.

    We had no issues with the Sleep Country in Lynnwood. We got a Tempurpedic and four years later we still love it. Seriously, we dread going to hotels because we have to sleep on a spring mattress. You definitely have to break in one so the delivery guy told us to walk on the bed for a few nights to speed up the process. Also, the foam responds to heat so if you lay on one in a cold store you need to give your spot enough time to warm up. Otherwise, you’ll think it’s rock hard.

    We tried Sleep Number and I couldn’t figure out my number. I like just getting into bed and within a few minutes I’m in my foam cell that has conformed perfectly to me. However, my in-laws love their Sleep Number. They supposedly have a computer hooked up to a bed in the store that will determine your Sleep Number for you now.

    Football doesn’t strike me as a classy event compared to..say.. the opera or a ballet. I’d still put it above a monster truck rally (derby? not sure what they are called?) but I think maybe people need to adjust their expectations.

    I never noticed cars left in a traffic lane on the east coast but everything in FL has a parking lot so it wouldn’t make any sense to. Maybe New England is different.

    I would comment on the front page if I could do so as Plasticbags. I stopped commenting when it switched to Facebook.

    Both of the Five Guys I’ve been to have huge barrels of peanuts clearly visible from the sidewalk before you get in the door. You definitely don’t want to go in there if you have an allergy. Or if you like crispier french fries. Their fries are pretty greasy/soggy. But the burgers themselves are good.
