1) City to which summer visitors move and end up slitting their wrists in February following 60-plus days of rain;
2) City that's still trying to get mileage off grunge music, over-roasted coffee beans, malfunctioning computer operating systems, and a dying aerospace industry;
3) City with its head so far up its own ass, it may as well rain for the next hundred years (and just might), because the hood-eyed freaks and pseudo-intellectuals wouldn't know the difference;
4) City whose Space Needle ensures that they will never be more than a West Coast, all-white Atlanta; and whose homogeneity takes all the credibility out of their so-called "tolerance."
4) City that is also called the "Emerald City" to lure ignorant tourists; in reality, is more than a little bit dark and evil - a true Scorpio city that could be the setting for a TV series based on "The Omen";
5) City motto: "Seattle: You're so close to Vancouver, why the hell are you living here?"
In September Kay moved to Seattle to work at a tuberous vegetable cooperative. By January she had pulled all her hair out, and in February threw herself off a 20-story building.

"Yes, as matter of fact I am dumb enough to live in Seattle despite the fact that British Columbia and free health care are only a ferry ride away, in Victoria. I make my living selling hemp shower curtains at Pike Place Market."

Californian #1: The traffic in Seattle was so bad, I thought I was in L.A.
Californian #2: Yeah; and if I eat any more wild salmon I'm gonna hurl!"

Seattle has two things going for it: Nordstrom and Elliott Bay Bookstore.

The Emerald City, a gem to the Pac. Northwest. Home to the Space-needle, Bank of America tower, Key West Arena, Safeco Field, and Seahawks stadium, it is truly an up-and-coming city.

It also happens to be a haven to people with -all- interests and styles of life, as shown by another definition to Seattle.

And ohh yeah, we're smart, too.
I'm so glad to live in Seattle.

One of the most picturesque cities not only in the U.S., but the world.
Home of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Safeco Field/Seahawk Stadium, Boeing Field, and some great views out into the mountains, especially Mt. Rainier.

Everyone needs to visit Seattle at least once in their lives.

The best city on the West Coast. Despite the rain (which makes the place nice and green), great people, great coffee (Hence Seattle AKA Latteville) and lots of things to do. Also the place of Microsoft Comps, and people who are really into high-tech activities.
That computer whiz is from Seattle area.

A city in Washington State.

What can I say? I live in California, and I hate it. Seattle is my place, and even though it does has it flaws, I still, and always love the Emerald City.
