my new apt/flat is great on saturday mornings. it's very quiet in my neighborhood so i can hear the *ding!!* of the pedestrian crossing sign when it changes. (it sounds like someone has won a prize every time it's safe to cross.)
the bagel from my corner grocery is properly chewy and tasty and i can occasionally catch a whiff of salt air from the sound when the wind blows the right way.
but the gulls still scare me. because sometimes when they squawk it sounds like someone's getting strangled.
the crows are okay though.
