Pocket Check

For most of my life, or at least as long as I've been wearing jeans everyday, I've had a habit of leaving things in my back pockets until they deteriorate, or until I realize there's no more room in my back pocket for anymore receipts or ticket stubs. I often take inventory of what's going on back there, and it reads as a dishevelled Book of Days for the past week to two months, depending on how long I've waited to empty my pockets and start afresh. As I'm currently about to start fresh, I thought I'd post my pocket inventory. Why? Because that is exactly what the interweb is for!

1) May 26 ticket stub to "Pirates of the Carribbean: At World's End" at Lincoln Square Cinemas in Bellevue.

2) June 6 recepit from Sushiland Marineoplis, the Pacific Northwest sushi restaurant chain that has a conveyor belt with plates of tekka makki for $1.50!

3) June 7 ticket stub for "The Wind That Shakes the Barley" at Shoreline's Crest Cinema, and an $8.50 concessions receipt at well.

4) June 15 ticket stub to "Ocean's 13" at AMC Pacific Place downtown.

5) June 23 ticket pass to the Seattle Center Monorail, which is apparently one of the oldest or first city monorails or something like that. In less than one song length on your Ipod, the monorail takes you from downtown Seattle to the Seattle Center in Lower Queen Anne. It costs two bucks, and I could have just taken the bus and used my expensive three month bus pass that's already paid for, but I would have had to walk farther to the bus, waited about twenty minutes and had a twenty minute bus ride to get me exactly where the monorail got me in two minutes. Worth two extra bucks? June 23, definately. Regular basis? Not so much.

Stay tuned next month or so for another exciting installment of "What's in Kj's Pockets, and Who Cares Besides Her?"
