Arts Chaos In The Streets!
Yesterday, because I had never been, I took a daytrip up to Bellingham. It’s a nice enough little town, with burritos (at Casa Que Pasa) that are far better than anything Seattle has to offer. It seems as though the whole town is still shellshocked due to the fact that there are now shiny new parking meters on every single street that’s anywhere near downtown. But I also noticed that most of the parking meters with cars in front of them hadn’t been paid, and a litle investigative eavesdropping in a secondhand clothing store revealed why: apparently, according to local rumor, Bellingham’s sole meter maid is on extendend sick leave due to a bad case of bursitis. If you want to go to Bellingham and park with unpaid fucking abandon, this could be your last chance: it’s like Grand Theft Auto starring Dagwood Bumstead. Sometimes I miss living in places that aren’t cities.
