Local writers Michael Montoure and Jenna M. Pitman will be hosting a reading at the Wayward Coffee House on Greenwood Ave. in Seattle. Both of them are well respected in the horror community and are looking forward to sharing their stories of terror with you to put you in the Halloween spirit! The reading starts at 8 pm and is easy to work around parties, club nights and even ZomBcon!
Hope to see you out! Current Mood: hopeful

Dear Green Lake Path walkers and cyclists:
Walkers, joggers, mothers with strollers, and other foot traffic, the outer lane of the path is for people on wheels. Your strollers do not constitute wheels in this case because your stroller is going at walking or jogging speeds. If you are on the wrong side of the path, for whatever reason, and you see a bike coming or hear someone call "On your right," MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! Don't just stand there like an idiot. If your music is up too loud to hear someone call out to you, TURN IT DOWN. Then I won't hate you and we can all use the Green Lake Path peacefully.
Cyclists, the correct way to ride around the Green Lake Path is COUNTERCLOCKWISE. There are signs everywhere saying this. People on foot can move whichever way they like on the inner path, but those of us on cycles should all be going the same direction. I'm guessing this is so that foot traffic knows what to expect, but you know what else it does? It makes sure those of us on wheels also know what to expect and don't suddenly have to veer into the foot traffic lane to get around some moron riding in the wrong direction. Besides, riding the wrong way gets me glares that are meant for you and I hate you for that. I'm a considerate, conscientious biker - you should be too.

Anyone in the neighborhood interested in starting a bi-monthly writers group? Or know of any previously existing ones open to new members?
I am interested in people looking to write novels though I need to work on some short stories and novelettes as well. And while I personally don't care what genre others are working in the other members of the group need to at least be ok with speculative fiction.
So if you're interested just let me know.

Writer Looking for a Basement Apartment in Greenlake/Wallingford/Phinney
I'm a 23 year old writer of speculative fiction. Aside from that I also work with dogs. Those two facts pretty much describe about 80% of all that there is to know about me.
I am responsible and surprisingly quiet. In one year I will be going back to school to get a degree in English. I currently live in Interbay but I spend a fair bit of time at the Woodland Park Off Leash Area.
The biggest issue for me is that I have a lab-sized dog. He is very well behaved and I am constantly exercising and training him. My experience with animals runs deep and I can assure you that he will not damage your property or cause undue stress.
My ideal would be a basement unit in a single family home but I am willing to consider rooms or studio apartments in the right environment.
I would like to move within the next week or two so please get back to me soon. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

New prescription drug discount card for WA Residents
Everyone knows someone or may be that someone that could use a little help with the cost of healthcare. Thought I would pass this on and encourage you to do the same.
I am the outreach coordinator for the WA State Health Care Authority Prescription Drug Program. We recently introduced a new state sponsored prescription discount card called WPDP. This new card is FREE and every resident in the state of Washington is eligible for the card. There are no income or age criteria to meet. WPDP offers discounts of about 60% on generic drugs and about 20% on brand name drugs. You may have seen or heard about the Governor supporting this program in March. As of this week we have enrolled more than 45,000 Washington residents in the program. Considering there are more than 600,000 uninsured in Washington, we still have a lot of work to do.
All of the information about the WPDP program is on our website: http://www.rx.wa.gov
People can enroll on line, in English (and soon in Spanish).
They can download enrollment forms in English or Spanish.
They can use the pharmacy locator program to find a participating pharmacy in their area.

Greenlake pedestrians, where do you cross I5?
I go to the Roosevelt Neighborhood Association meetings monthly, and last night we had a presentation by an artist who is working on a project for the 65th st underpass- dressing up the Park n' Pool a bit.
She's presenting at the Greenlake Neighborhood Association meeting (May 9th, I think: http://www.greenlakecommunitycouncil.org/
) about the same project.
They are planning on cleaning up and partially lighting 65th street itself, but not where Weedin Place passes under I-5. That is really the stretch that my wife and I use more often as pedestrians when going to Greenlake, and it is a little bit creepier (presence of guys living out of their car and sleeping under the bridge, mountains of pigeon doo).
Question: for those of you in Greenlake who occasionally pedester over to Roosevelt Square, where do you cross I-5? Do you take Weedin, 65th, or the bridge at 70th?

Favorite places to go in Greenlake
Oh hey, a Greenlake Community! Some of my favorite places in Greenlake are:
- the lake of course
- Beths (24 hours, food, attitude)
- I used to like going to World Wrapps a lot....don't go very often now
- I-5 Pizza up on Aurora (cheap, good, non-chain, good people that work there)
- Than Bro Pho (Pho...mmmm)
Does anyone visit the community center at all? I always wondered what went on there.
