Almost there...

Monday, August 12, 2002

So on our way out of Chicago, Kevin insisted we go to this one breakfast place in Willemette. The Great Breakfast Hunt continued! So, off we went, 20 miles in the wrong direction. "This place has great omelettes," he says. "What's it called?" says I. "I don't remember. I just have an address." Ten minutes later we pull up in front of Walker Bros./The Original Pancake House. For those of you who have followed the Great Breakfast Mission, our two standard breakfast haunts in the South Bay were Hobees and The Original Pancake House. I stood there, stunned. And then I had my usual - potato pancakes. Yummy.

So, for Emily this should work out really great. Soon after I get home, I expect to be dragging her to Los Altos or Saratoga for a great breakfast from home.

We made it to Pittsburgh last night at around midnight. Kevin's apartment had all the windows closed tight and was swelteringly hot. But we opened it all up, carried all the boxes and bags and such upstairs, and it was almost habitable when we went to sleep at 2 am.

Today we made a whirlwind tour of IKEA, Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, WalMart, and Home Depot, coming home with enough to start a household, with the remainder being delivered by IKEA on Wednesday. We stopped for lunch at the Cracker Barrel again (yummy fried okra...) and when we came out, the sky had cracked open into a thundershower. Standing there about to step into the parking lot, we knew this wasn't California anymore. Again. Then Kevin and I walked around the campus of CMU and headed to Shadyside for a coffee and one more Fluxx tournee. Kevin beat me senseless. I guess it's only fair that Pennsylvania is his state, since he's got to live here.

Tomorrow we get up early and drive back to Cleveland to make my way across the country via Southwest Airlines. Time for bed now.
