A Relaxing Blitz

After spending almost two months blogging my 11 day pilgrimage to the Holy Land in full, glorious painstaking detail, I take some delight in posting about my trip to Redmond/Seattle in a one normal sized post…

I had fun. I got to hang out with Dave, Fabian and my bunnies a lot. I drank coffee a lot.

I worked of my PhD a lot but still didn’t finish everything I wanted to. It was autumny when I arrived…

red, red, red

…but then it snowed a lot in time for Christmas (and in time to just about bring public services to a halt and keep people holed up at home). I bought a pair of awesome boots and gloves which served me very well.

it started gently...

best boots evah

Dave learned to drive and we got lost many times on the freeways, byways and parkways. We went hunting for cupcakes and home-roasted coffee beans and found some fine specimens in neighbourhoods such as Ballard and Kent.

We bought strange, exciting mushrooms, chard and cheese from Pike Place Market. I found the supermarkets totally intimidating at first with all the unfamiliar and super enthusiastic branding and sheer amount of corn based products. People were generally disarmingly friendly. I watched more bad reality TV than I should have and had a seriously bad nightmare that I was one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I learned a whole new vocabulary where a “biscuit” is more like a muffin, “pancakes” are more like flap jacks and “crepes” are more like pancakes. I miss it muchly am looking forward to the Seattle summer 🙂
