    Up Union St to work near Seattle University.

    Good times.

    By the way, the South Lake Union Streetcar is nicknamed, unsurprisingly, the SLUT.

    Couldn't resist.

      to mention that!  I love that my beloved, liberal Seattle rides people around on the SLUT.  Just awesome.  Also, I think we should have an Oregon-style transit system.  I've loved Portland since the first time I visited, and, if not for family and work obligations, I'd move there in a heartbeat.  I mean, they not only have great coffee (Stumptown), great bookstores (Powells), and a great transit system, they also have Voodoo Donuts (where I got married last year). Beautiful city, nice people, decent traffic, and no sales tax.  Awesome.
