remember if Natasha (Fu's GPS) got us lost that evening or not, but I
do remember it took a long time to get there and I was struggling to
stay awake in the backseat of the car.
I believe we went to Sea Harbor Restaurant. Their nonfried dishes were excellent, but their fried dishes were not worth eating.

I can't say for certain, but Seattle may have converted us into being ridiculous coffee snobs. Our journey to LA was frought with coffee mediocrity. Even at Opus, with it's chef's tasting menu, the coffee tasted of little more than rinsed day old grounds. Epic sadness.
Have we bought into the Seattle mythos? Have we become those people who always say "oh, the this or that is much better back home...?"
The one thing that may be evidence against our utter loss to snobbery was our enjoyment of the coffee at a local Persian bakery called Pink Orchid. While their breakfast items were hot or miss, the coffee was good alongside a healthy dose of tasty baked goods and super friendliness.

We also made it to the gym yesterday ( huzzah for the shopkeep!). It was my first time gymming with the iPhone (ok let's be honest, it was my first time going to the gym in the past half year). I mostly streamed NPR. I did check email while stretching afterward. :) I'm not addicted or anything
