Coca Cola with sugar

Coca Cola with sugar

I’m not a huge soda drinker (especially non-diet), but I don’t think I’m imagining how good this sugar-sweetened Coke tasted compared to the American HFCS version.

Two alleys

Two alleys

Two of the several alleys I walked past on my way home from meeting Jessica at the coffeeshop tonight.

My homebody ways may save me yet again.

My homebody ways may save me yet again.

After I moved to Ohio from San Francisco in 2009, a coworker remarked that Columbus must be quite an adjustment. Really it wasn’t. Aside from having to buy a vehicle – I don’t enjoy driving or the endless related expenses  – my life didn’t feel that much different. I still woke up around the same … Continue reading

Weekend odds & ends.

Weekend odds & ends.
