Pies and Pints

This AM, moto mentioned heading to Neptune after work for the new Indiana Jones. I begged off, as we were meeting with some of Mr. T’s former internapster colleagues, but we’d be up for whatever she was doing afterward. Turned out, those plans were scuttled, and Mr. T and I were off to a late afternoon showing of the movie at Cinerama with his current colleagues. From there, we went with a group onto Belltown Pizza. Later, we got the call to meet up with moto and ‘stir & co. at Pies and Pints. I’d say we mostly ended the evening there, but moto walked back with us to our house for a nightcap and a long chat.

Great way to start the holiday weekend.

No Parking

Roosevelt's Parking Warnings

Today, I was tempted to cheat and post an old picture, but I told myself at the project start that I wanted a picture a day. I didn’t declare an end date; I should. For now, I plan a year. More game rules would keep me on my toes.

It feels like a slow start — I am a much more dynamic gadabout than these would indicate, it’s on the down-low at the moment. So I should chill. I guess I needed to be housebound before I’d get this ball rolling. I’ve sat on it for months.

About this picture: Tonight, I walked to the grocery store for stamps. I used up a whole book in one sitting.  Like the current rise in gas prices, I blinked and suddenly stamps cost more than I remembered.

Parking is contentious in random pockets of Roosevelt, as in many Seattle neighborhoods. This corner happens to be unzoned.
