It's election time back home and I've actually managed to get my ballot in. I'm almost a pure Stranger ticket voter, though I couldn't handle voting for Jean Godden even if she was the only one on City Council who told Mayor Nickels to stick it. Supposedly he's creating a Dubya style "ignore the legislative branch" government in Seattle - couldn't say I didn't see it coming. I'm also voting against the transportation taxes - too much freaking money for roads and the Sound Transit expansion to Tacoma is just stupid. Why can't they wrest control of the rails away from the money sucking freight companies and actually develop a decent train system? I despair.
I've also put in a special request to a friend who's moving here for a solid influx of Mexican groceries. Just looking at the website where they were selling this stuff was making me drool last night. I've completely run out of tomatillo sauce and red enchilada sauce. I sure hope he comes through! I've also got several cookbooks on order - with luck shadowdaddy will come back from the states with the raw power needed to keep my food going for years!
