Notice how it's only white people being sucked into the sky. Nice. I hope it's really aliens and they're in for a severe probing.

It's probably nice if you like Chinese food and good seats in the movie theater, at least.

Where do the cool atheist guys go and eat dinner at when all the Christians are enjoying their annual one day per year of togetherness?

@1 If only white people are in heaven I have to change religions because that would be one boring, uptight place!

I was being sarcastic and bitchy. That picture is a perfect illustration of the Evangelical's ideal of heaven (and the journey there). Completely bigoted.

Gee... Christmas morning, a world without Christians. Just like the rapture. How come I never thought of it that way before? Eli, this is the first thing in years to make me hate Christmas less. Thanks!

So I rode my bike around Belltown and saw Bauhaus coffee was open and hung out there with all the other unsaved. Then I went over and rode the length of the SLUT, just to see how treacherous it is for motorcycles (pretty fucking treacherous).

And, no, that does not mean I think the critical massholes should be acting like terrorists over the SLUT. It means you should avoid that route.

I know... I was just teasing you ; )

Well, kind of I really do find White America quite boring a lot of the time.

I prefer to hang with illegals!

It's a lot closer to "after the holocost" than "after the rapture" here in Denver. It's been snowing steadily all day. The only people dumb enough to go anywhere are smashing their cars up like crazy. Sorta like "I Am Legend," but with snow.

My parents got raptured.

And all I got was this fucking t-shirt.

Merry Christmas, slog-people, and God Bless us, Everyone!

Shit, I slept in, missed the whole thing. Bah, who cares, I'm Jewish, anyway...

But the streets -do- seem kinda deserted.

I think I am going to head up to the hill to see the deserted streets of Seattle!!

Just ME @ 3, If it ain't Indian or Chinese, you're eating at AMPM.

I speak from experience.

Your snide comments are all forgiven. Rejoice!

@12, I just had an gyros at that one really good place on the Ave in the U -District and walked back home in Wedgewood. VERY quiet and peaceful. May the Christians never ever come back. Life is better without them.

So when the rapture comes do we all get awesome perky white-girl upskirt action?

@3 & @12:

McCormick & Schmick's Harborside in SLU is really the only local restaurant of note open on Christmas Day, albeit with a limited menu.

I highly suggest making reservations, but if you do decide to go just on a whim, try to get there around 3:00 p.m., after the brunch crowd has mostly cleared out, but before the dinner crowd shows up. We got a walk-up table for five in the cozy upstairs back dining room after a wait of less than 10 minutes yesterday.
