Not My Greenest Post

What a difference 434 miles make. Well, maybe. It’s 20 degrees cooler here but I’m still sweating like a stuck pig. Still, every time you walk into a hotel room, it’s obvious you’re not home anymore.

Have Chromebook, Will Travel

Thursday evening, and I’m having dinner at the Mongolian Bistro on Overland. They have baby corn here.

Σ loves this stuff. I can’t stand it.

Big deal, right? Well, yeah, like baby corn it’s not that exciting. That is, until you consider I’m writing today’s SB at this fine establishment.
