Seattle on My Mind

In about three and a half weeks, I’m off to the great Pacific Northwest with Mark. It will be almost five years to the week after my last trip up that way. That was a great trip, despite the fact that the Seattle portion was marred by the presence of a whiny and pouting ex-dalliance. This time will, I suspect, be much more pleasant, if for no other reason than the fact that I’ll be in Seattle with someone who actually WANTS to be there…

I’m positively giddy at the prospect of a whole week with Mark. And at the prospect of a whole week out of San Francisco. And at the fact that I’ve found one of those rare appropriate uses of the word “giddy”. My biggest fear is that, just like last time, I’ll return so obsessed with the idea of moving up there (and with spending unmetered time with Mark) that San Francisco will seem even more dismal than it does now…

Interesting reading for your evening…

I may post one or two election endorsements later tonight; I’m getting a little tired of Winona’s face below…
