heirloom tomatoes, yellow nectarines, artichokes;
old vine zinfandel, tacos at Chipotle, everything at Trader Joe's.

gifts with purchase, pirate bands, microbrews;
cheap eats at happy hour,
rosemary bushes in parking lots,
the biggest blue sky I've ever seen.
colorful sensets, black PNW overcast,
the burning smell of autumn on a rainy day;
wet leaves, hanging out, hugs.

being in the same timezone as my family,
free night and weekend minutes, "text me";
nonsmoking culture, cable TV, my housemates.

casual Spanish, clothes dryers, kitties.

red potatoes. rye bread. blackberries.

I was telling Isabel this morning:

I really love making muffins, but not as much as I miss Monica.
I really love eating said muffins, but again, not as much as I miss Monica.
I really love giving away muffins, almost as much as I miss Monica.

And so Isabel, being the brilliant wonder-brain that she is, suggested I *send* you some. Do you think muffins would keep? I'm definitely bringing some to Brazil with me when I go. Today's amazing concoction was oatmeal/bananas/brown sugar/whole wheat/dried apricots/almonds/cranberries. Before I'd made banana-bran ones. And I made awesome pizza for dinner. (Considering how long the oven sat in my kitchen before I actually started using it...) But I miss you!

Let me know when you want to talk mail and fountains.

Wish I were eating heirloom tomatoes. Just paid $3 for a tomato the size of a baby's fist in the hopes for a juicy tomato. It was futsuu at best. And the yellow peach I got, am hoping it's awesome. Will find out tomorrow. <3 Miss you tons.

Oh, and you enjoy the cheese there, too, right???

I miss you too!!

Those muffins sound amazing. Let's discuss them and mail and fountains next time you're online? (I keep looking for you on IM, but...)

I do like the cheese here, but since I could technically get it in Japan (for a certain price) I left if off the list. It's nice to be able to get a good-sized package of feta or gorgonzola for $3, though! Food is so cheap here!

Pirate Bands?

I assume "pirate bands" is not a reference to short wave radio (or is it?), but could it be this kind of thing???

(From there, I make a nostalgic leap to The Pogues' early album, "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash," which is about the same age as Monica.)

Or this????

You can't get rye bread in Japan? Then I ain't goin' there! Next thing you'll be telling me I can't get gnocci there...

The Rogue brewery's sponsorship gives the Portland Pirate Festival some serious prestige, at least to me. I wonder if Michael Hurley ever shows his face at one of these festivals.
