Wait. You got the directions on the video, yet somehow didn't remember them? Why didn't you just go back to the tape? :D

Aw, look at Levi. I think someone's in love with the Public Intern.

Wait...where are the pics of you and Levi making out? There's enough sexual energy in those shots between you to power a hypothetical Iranian nuclear facility....

a new kink...gay boys feeding cake to each other.

hot.

it's also very cute that the Public Intern is so young and unjaded that he doesn't know how to get to the Sunset despite being a Seattle native.

sweet.

The public intern shtick is kind of cute, but either you're an asshole or you just come off as one in the way you write. Getting kind of bored of it all.

In keeping with Rule 34, there is now Public Intern/Levi slash on fanfic.net

That cake is the foulest-looking thing I have ever seen.

Oh for god's sake, fnarf. It is not.

Ever since you've been back from England you've been mr. foody snob. Jesus...

It might not be the foulest thing I've ever seen, but it is a pretty horrid concept. Then again, I tend to be anti-vegan when it comes to food. *shrug* Apparently the cute musician liked it and he got a cute boy to feed it to him...

I'm gonna have to call this a win. :D

This column has died entirely.

Public intern does specific thing for specific person (pets of the Stranger, such as Slog commenter or musician)

Takes pictures. Isn't he JUST SO CYUTE! I SURE WISH HE LOVED ME.

repeat.

1907 - Ballard annexed by the City of Seattle
2007 - Capitol Hill resident still fails to identify ass, hole in the ground

Free Ballard!

Actually, you can make a pretty excellent vegan cake. My sister makes a great Rummingbird cake with bananas and pineapple and rum. It's awesome. Kind of heavy, but awesome.

Oh, and c'mon! So it's cute - the stories don't all have to be about pedophilic ministers and horrible parents, do they? Besides, I'm with @6 on this one - lets see the other pics. ;)

OK, I love their wine tastings too ...

So you're in line with the "I SURE WISH HE LOVED ME." aspect (#17)

I hope the Stranger isn't hoping to teach basic journalism to the Public Intern. Between not looking up directions ahead of time and misidentifying an Office Max as an Office Depot, this article exemplifies the depths to which journalism has fallen.

Let's see. Decrepit old man asks for cake and all he gets is excuses: "Oh, I don't have a car, and San Francisco is so far to go. Oh, I have a class tonight and would never get back in time". Cute musician asks for cake and Public Intern goes running. Sure, Public Intern. I understand perfectly.

The Public Intern's Adventures are funny (in a small way) and he's a good writer...so LAY OFF HIM, JADED OLD FUCKTARDS!!! If you don't like these threads, don't read them.

They make a refreshing break from your typical Slog day: transit-bike shit/blah,blah/bad parents/blah,blah/sexdrugsrock/blah, blah/gay shit/blah,blah/bird flu/blah, blah/mudede being deep/blah, blah/adrian being shallow/blah, blah/Liberty is such a great bar/blah, blah/local-national political shit/blah,blah/where in the world is savage at now?/blah, blah, blah, BLAH!!

Rinse and repeat, ad infinitum

That was quite a contribution from PCC considering the cakes were probably $29.95 each.

And if Levi had a tummy ache after eating so much, it's probably because there's enough organic fiber in it to blow out the sewers of Tokyo.

I loves me some Public Intern.

I second the Jenkems suggestion. C'mon intern! Is this for real?

I like the pie suggestion. Boston Cream?

Pie, or a bullhorn!

@21 - Nope, sorry. I also think cats, otters and baby sloths are cute, but I have no concerns about whether they feel the same about me. =) I think you'll find that it is in fact possible to find something cute without desiring reciprocity.

And sorry, Public Intern, but I can't think of anything Seattle really needs - I just enjoy the adventures from afar.

Boston Cream Pie isn't pie. It's a cake baked in pie tins.


I bet the vegan cake was loaded with safflower oil. That shit always makes me queasy.

Vegan baked goods... ugh. Outside of what might come from the rendering plant, the animal products in baked goods are probably their easiest ingredients for your body to break down.

Can the public intern be the Voice of the People on the buses for an afternoon and demand apologies from people who hit other people in the face with their fingernail clippings? You're upbeat, you probably won't get punched!

I recognize that Fremont PCC worker. He's really great and extremely laid-back. I think PCC should get props for giving away cake. (Or maybe they need to get dinged for making cake that makes people sick.)

BTW, I have had delicious vegan cake before. Secret ingredient? Oil. Yum.

OK, I was all right with the rumors of my gayness (I will admit that first pic is pretty darn gay-looking), but I gotta speak up for the PCC cake. The only reason I felt a bit ill was a combination of not eating a big enough dinner, drinking beer, and eating several pieces of cake (we had to get those pictures just right, so Steven kept making me eat more cake! And then I ate even more because it was so good!).

Vegan cake rulz. Many, many thanks to PCC and the Public Intern.

Do we know Paul Allen's schedule?

We should cut out the City of Seattle middleman and have Public Intern hand Paul Allen our money directly!

Posted by NapoleonXIV | November 6, 2007 3:59 PM

Unfortunately, NapoleonXIV, I don't think Steven is big enough to be able to haul around all those giant sacks of money by himself.

Which of course begs the obvious question: "Is 'The Public Intern' allowed to have his own 'Public Intern's Intern'?"

I'm sure Vulcan would donate the Public Intern an intern for such a beneficent Public Purpose.....

Suck it, Matt from Denver. I've been a foodie snob longer than you've been wearing long pants. And if anything, the Land of the Sassenachs has made me appreciate crap food even more. But not VEGAN CAKE. Jesus, cake of any kind is an abomination but that one looks like four-year-old Suzie made it in the warmth of a light bulb.

I'm right there with you, 23- It's cute-but where's he gonna go from here, or was not getting directions part of the "adventure"? Office MAX, MAX. What's so hard about that?

Vegan cake?
Disgusting.
Eggs and milk, bitches. Otherwise it's not a cake.

The first picture reminds me of those ladies from City Light who used to come around and show you how to bake things.

Fnarf @ 46, you've been a foodie snob since you were 9? Wow, that's an early age to start appreciating buffalo mozzarella.

the cake post was a nice break from republican sex scandals, political debate stories and transit posts.
I wish some cut boy would feed me cake.
Cake is good.

I agree that the Pubilc Intern's recent assignments doing things for specific individuals has been more boring, but I like these columns and think he and his writing are adorable. And I'm a dyke in Madison, Wisconsin, so don't accuse me of wanting reciprocity. Reading these little pieces brighten my day!
