I've been eating breakfast lately at a little diner at the end of the block called “Yasi's Place” (it's much cheaper than the review implies). I don't think I quite make the “whole wheat hipster” level though… You may remember how (falsely) nervous I was last year going to because even among people who in theory I agree with, I often feel like an outsider (nope). On the subway or bus, people would rather stand than sit next to me… I guess I exude some sort of “weird vibe” (or maybe it's a toxic smell that I'm unaware of, ha — please, someone tell me if it is).

I've discovered that my cellphone camera does not take decent pictures of food. The above is a delicious baked avocado sandwhich on cornbread with potatos (other than a little cheddar it's vegan). I don't think it looks very appetizing in the picture but it really is. Honest!

Quote of the day, c/o Phil:

Phil: "Is it too late to get the all day breakfast?"

Waitress: "No, we serve that all day."

In his defense, Phil was actually asking whether he got free coffee with it (the menu stated that the caffeinated offer ended at 11AM, which is about when we got there); the question just came out wrong. It's little things like being able to go out to a nice little diner/cafe for breakfast that I love about being back in the city (not that taco stand lunches don't have their charm to) — and I also think of .

Anyway, I'm working on some video stuff both for the site and for blogging later today… By the end of the day I'll hear whether the nice house up the street is mine to move into or not (it's been accepted but may be contingent on a credit check still). It will be very nice to actually set up a proper office. This is the first place in a long time that I've had full control over setting up, so I'm going to try and both get what I want out of it and do a nice job in the process. I'll tell you that I'm very much looking forward to being able to hang art again, and set up a stereo system.

Time now to swap mice with Phil so I can finish off Rachel's business card…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
