Seattle is — as expected — gorgeous. However, she outdid herself trying to live up to her press today: cold and drizzly all day long, which given the context of several phone calls I made back home to find that it was once again soaring into the 90s in the N.C. was kind of hilarious. I’m living in a neighborhood that’s lushly green and dotted with Craftsman style homes, beautiful quiet streets, and a distant view out into Capitol Hill; and not even the icy wind blowing through my window can bring me down. I took a long walk around the neighborhood today until the rain hit, and came back inside to watch NCIS and House and play with the dog, talk to my awesome roommate, and curl up under a quilt; it doesn’t feel like June, but I think I can live with that. Tomorrow’s goal? Acquire food. And also knock out another eight pages of Arc and post.
