Newsmash: Thoughts about caucuses, favorite songs, and reasons to leave the house

Hello dear February and all that you’ve brought with you this week!

Political things are kicking up and getting real with all kinds of insanity and importance. Have you caucused before? I remember the first caucus I went to back in 2004. Thank goodness I had the guide that our pal Lawrence put together for us back then. I’m hoping he’ll put one together for us this year as well so that we can all be mentally (and emotionally) prepared for Washington state’s big day (Saturday, March 26, 2016).

My favorite webby things of the week

In case you missed it when we shared these items on twitter/facebook, I give a high-five with my mouse to these neat things:

In High Rotation this week

Mark Your Calendars!

In other imaginary news, I recently poured over some current events posts and realized there are all kinds of amazing things coming to Seattle this month.  Apologies that we are still working on getting our imaginary website calendars up and going.

In the meantime, here’s a list of some of the super amazing things I wanted to make sure you knew about. I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it to any of these, so report back on your fun if you make it out on the town in my absence:
