It's the Little Things That Make a City: Some of my favorite Slog posts are the ones that are just little thoughts about day-to-day life in Seattle. Jen Graves put up two great little slice-of-life posts this week, about car horns and about a raspberry almond scone she enjoyed.
Aloha, Friends: We welcomed new Suggests editor Krishanu Ray to Slog this week. He's going to be a great addition to Slog. Unfortunately, we also said goodbye to Cienna Madrid. Cienna sat at the desk across from me for four years. She would sometimes sneak up behind me and hug me for an uncomfortable amount of time while I was trying to work. She loves to get drunk and embarrass me at parties. On the other hand, she let me pile uncomfortably high stacks of terrible books on her desk, and she also let me wipe my Romney-cootie-infested hand on her head after I shook Mitt Romney's hand in Bellevue. I'll miss having Cienna around on a daily basis, but I'm so excited for the day when she publishes her first book. Hopefully, it'll be good, because things will get awkward if I have to write a negative review of it in The Stranger. Either way, I'm looking forward to embarrassing the hell out of her at her book launch party.
