no food

I keep saying the food updates are coming...and they are. But first I wanted to share a few pix from the road trip.

Working backwards...

Final destination: my new apt. I recently upgraded and got chairs and a bed. Fab.

This would be Tahoe. Pretty. Third prettiest lake on the trip (after Yellowstone and Michigan).

Yellowstone Upper Falls.

The bison, aka buffalo. Very cool. We had some in burger-form.

Scene of the flat: Acme, Wyoming. FYI: Verizon doesn't represent so well in the Acme vicinity.
Me and Caf: taking on the Badlands in flip flops and platforms. 110 degrees F. Nearest Starbucks 291 mi. away, according to GPS.

And this is how we roll.

no photo

Lame, i know. The mattress is getting here on Saturday.

So the massive wine tasting part of the fun has slowed significantly (has it only been a week?), and I can finally resume my "sushi-once-a-week" resolution. (No sake necessary, thank you.)

Some favorites:
Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay
Etude Pinot Gris
Stags' Leap Petite Syrah
St. Clement Oroppas Cabernet Sauvignon (2002)
Wynns Coonawarra Shiraz

Must be careful not to get spoiled.

Peet's is on my way to work. Did you know that the Peet's here puts soy milk in its carafes? They put it right there on the counter, next to the half & half. Just like the regular milk. And the nonfat. Equal opportunity for dairy and non-dairy alike. Now that's what I like to see.
