My Pole Was Cold

pole cozy

The pole cozies are back! [chs] And just in time for an unseasonably cold summer as well.

I remember when I first moved here two years ago (as of June 1!), one of the first quirky things I noticed about Seattle was a similar cozy on a sign somewhere around Capitol Hill. It’s just those quirky things that have made me fall in love with Seattle over and over. I like my cities the way I like my boys: a little warm, a little cold, a lot odd, and with nerdy glasses. (Wait…can cities have glasses? If they could, Seattle would have rain-speckled horn rims.)

And pole cozies? That’s exactly the kind of Seattle I love to love.

Any quirks you’ve seen and loved in your neighborhood? Better yet, any boys with nerdy glasses?

    Well speaking of boys with nerdy glasses, Weezer’s new album is out:

    I love it! I am systematically doing the same thing to my neighborhood, and they all love it!
