On the plus side

I got a very little little bit of writing in tonight. Some scratches mostly, but I think this one’s worth pursuing. First time in a long time.

Well, we decided not to let an opportunity like this just go by, so we swung on over afterwards, to see if we could get a tour of the place. Round the corner, we spy a few cabinets against the window, seemingly taunting us. Once…

Hot Dougs: Revisited

For lunch today, I headed out with Chris. In part, we discussed a project we’re working together on for work. And really, any excuse is a good excuse to go to Hot Dougs. My first exposure to Hot Dougs was back in February, when Alex and Linda and Jenn were visiting. Ever since, I’ve been craving the place, amazed that…
