Why I am jet-lagged and happy

I went out on dates Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday night, and they went, in order, something like good, meh, and pretty good. And in answer to your question, Internet, because I know you're dying to know, she was very sweet and totally not intimidating in real life. She's going to introduce me to some of her Romance Studies friends, because you can take the girl out of the French literature grad program, but you can't take the French literature grad program out of the girl. Plus, if I ever get too nostalgic for my grad student days, there's nothing like hanging out with a bunch of over-worked PhD students to remind you why you got out in the first place.

Anyway, I figured the best thing to do was to cram in as many dates as possible before I went out of town for a week, because- oh! I didn't mention I was going to Seattle?

Internet- I am writing to you from Seattle right now! And I am thrilled to be here. It's my very first time visiting the Pacific Northwest, and I am being hosted by my dear friend Jamie. Last night she took me to see the most spectacularly beautiful view of a city by night that I have ever seen:

Er, well, it wasn't actually like that, it was more...

Um, yeah. I guess you had to be there.

Alright, well, my crappy camera and I are going to go get some coffee. (I hear that's what you do here.) Cheers, everyone, and if you don't hear from me before then, have a very, very happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Hey! You should got to Cafe Vita (the one on Capitol Hill I think) and see my friend Katie. She is amazing AND makes the best latte you'll ever have!

    Also! I gave you the same award Decoybetty did. We love you.

  2. You sound much happier! Have a great time in Seattle. :-)

  3. Happy West Coast Thanksgiving! Enjoy the break from Mythaca. Seattle is a great city, even if it's all dark and blurry...
