ok, look. the cheese festival is cool. but the crowds? i can really do without them.
yesterday it was rainy so, in addition to those who were being all grabby-grabby like they'd never seen cheese before and the stroller people who, for fuck's sake, need their own goddamned area so they can get the hell out of everyone else's way, there were the morons who decided to walk around with huge open umbrellas.
anyway, the few cheeses that i sampled were very nice.
it's just, you know, there needs to be a better way to funnel people through the sampling areas.
and now for a diversionary tactic: here's a picture of some ice cream.
anyway, after the market, leff and i detoured to schmancy
where, oddly, i didn't buy anything. (oddly because this is birthday week and i tend to buy myself silly little things during the duration.)
a bit later we had breakfast at the croc. i had biscuits and gravy and some seriously milky coffee.
i forget what leff ate but it involved a tortilla.
the rest of the day we holed up inside because, apparently, may is the new monsoon season in seattle. (seriously, if it doesn't clear up soon, i'm going to personally strangle the cold front that's causing the rain.)
for now though, it's time to get ready for the "heroes" finale party. oh, and to finish cleaning up from friday's party. vote patrelli!
