Feeling better.

Thanks for all the expressions of sympathy.

I feel quite a lot better. Go immune system go!

I had a dr appt for 8:30am this morning, which was, of course, the time I woke up. (They let me change it to 3pm today.)

The quarter mile trek to the grocery store last night was one of the longest trips I've made in a long time.

For some odd reason, sleeping while fully dressed felt better.

Food Meme, gakked from intrepid_reason

The BBC asked people to vote for the top 50 things everyone should try a bite of in their lifetime. Bold the ones you've eaten. (even a bite counts, coward...)

Add your favorite food to the bottom of the list. Then add one unlisted food you have always wanted to give a whirl. Repost in your journal, be nice and use an LJ cut.

Seattle Initiative 901, Smoking Ban. I'm voting AGAINST.

I've decided how I'm going to vote on Initiative 901, the Seattle smoking ban.

I'm going to vote AGAINST. If you are a Seattle voter, I think you should, too.

First of all. I'm not a smoker. I've never smoked. I never will. I hate the smell of cigarette smoke. I dislike having to air out my clothes after going clubbing.

However, this ban is stupid. It extends too far away from the entrance to buildings. It makes the business owner liable, not the smoker. It's unclear who is responsable for enforcement. It gives the SPD (and anyone else) too much latitude to hassle politically unpopular clubs. And there are no excemptions for places like cigar bars.

That means that if someone is legally smoking outdoors walks by the entry to a restaurant, even if they are not a patron, that restaurant is in violation. Even tho the business has no legal power to stop them. If some self-appointed group wanted to shut a place down, all they need to do is gather around it's airvents and light up cigarettes.

The groups pushing for I901, such as the annoyingly named "Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights", don't consider these to be problems, they consider them to be features.

I don't think so.
