It’s been a busy day in Downtown Seattle.
If only we could build a moat at the Oregon/California border.
Ah well, when I get voted in as first president of the great nation of Cascadia, it will be my very first order of business.
Anywhat … the Christmas Season is officially here, and I walked over to 5th and Pine to catch the lighting ceremony. This year was dry, and because of that, we got fireworks. Score one for 2011.
If you happened to miss it, I got some pictures and a bad video which are posted on this page. Please excuse the quality for my good camera was a casualty of an Occupy Seattle clash a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps Santa will replace it.
You hear me, Kringle? I need a new camera. Don’t make me come up there you fat f… anyway.
I enjoyed the ceremony, but since last month, I still have not spent one dollar in Westlake Center. Sadly, I probably never will. I’m the reining champion of standing alone on principle to my own detriment, and I’ll be damned of I relinquish my crown any time soon. Most everyone else was clutching their wallets and looking for a place to spend, so we can expect to see Westlake Security cracking skulls for the foreseeable future. People don’t care unless it’s their own skull.
I was really glad to see M-Cubed (Mayor Mike McGinn) there, and I did my best to cheer loud enough to drown out the suburban dillmonkey standing next to me booing.
“That man rides a bicycle and I’d rather die than have to get out of my car to buy a quarter-pounder with cheese, boooooooooooooo!”
Seriously, our mayor comes down for a non-political family festival and you have to open the gaping cornhole on the front of your head to impress the other podunks from Kent? Well done, dickless, you ruined it for us. Thanks for coming.
In any event, enjoy the photos, and if you’re not a podunk from Kent, come on down and check out the lights in person. They are quite beautiful.
