Today, picklebird received a most unexpected and very pleasant surprise. A chocolate bar delivered via the United States Postal Service! Yay!! I have to confess that after the day after the last post, I did go out and buy a pint of B&J's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Low-Fat Yogurt. But that is now, of course, long gone, so the Lindt bar has arrived just in time. And it is also perfect sustenance for the road trip to Vermont. Thank you to the fellow picklebird in Mill Valley.
- Craigslist (yes, there is craigslist cleveland, but no one uses it!)
- when you order eggs and toast, your toast doesn't arrive drenched in butter
- The used bookstores
- Cheap, good Mexican food
- Real farmer's markets
- spicy scallop rolls at Godzila
- the big sweeping turn the 33 bus makes onto Market from Clayton
- 18th Street
- Crossroads Clothing Co.
- The view of the city as you are round the turn to the Golden Gate Bridge from Marin
- Cafes with names that don't start with S and rhyme with "sucks"
I know that I have commented on this before, but this one really takes the cake. The ads on my blog today featured "Acre on the moon $29.99" and "Horney Goat Weed Sale." How did I get slotted into the 'flaky girl' category?
Tonight I was out having a glass of wine with a friend. We were bemoaning our time in Cleveland, when all of a sudden a guy on a bicycle rides by. He's sort of acting as a sort of town crier, shouting about the greatness of Cleveland (and trying to make a sale): "In New York, in New York you get robbed. But not here; everyone's nice. And we've got the best weed. Better than Brooklyn." It's no wonder I haven't gotten on the Cleveland-program, I haven't been smoking its pot.
