Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

lishd and I beat KQ VI today.

Food in Seattle:
Yesterday: Sushi.
Today: Beer at Elysium, sandwiches at honeyhole, and Ethiopian food at Queen of Sheba.

gorthok apparently asked before I got here if they were going to have to take me to all the touristy shit. So far, the intervening time has been spent in a mix of playing KQ6 and helping gorthok install Gentoo. I threw in a couple of hacks to his kernel for fun. That, and the 500 GB HDD I put it on, was my birthday present to him.

As it turns out, I have seen some of the touristy shit. The Blue Angels were flying around today while we were trekking around. If I look carefully when I wake up, I can see the Space Needle. By and large though, it hasn't been what's made this trip a bunch of fun. Somehow, being in Seattle is still this crazy sort of adventure. Very little foresight involved. Very little planning. Just buy the tickets, pack the bags, and go. I've thought a couple of times that this, basically, is my Madagascar. If you saw the most recent Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, then you know what I'm talking about.

In reality, it's not much of an adventure, but it *feels* like one. Ultimately, that's all I needed, I guess. I'm happy. 8)

Tomorrow, I'll be coming back home and it'll be really nice. 8)

Oh yeah -- I kinda picked on a vegan today. That's a story for later. I gotta get to sleep.

G'night folks 8)
