I write this post from the Starbucks at the “Smart Center” on 4th Avenue and Vansickle Rd. Why? Because I can. The concept of internet mobility fascinates me. And it’s just fun. How better to spend a “staycation” then to take my computer and surf the internet somewhere else other than my living room?

I’m actually here to get more yarn for my laptop sleeve project.  It seems that the only place in this city to get this brand of yarn is at Michaels. At least, it’s the most convenient place to get this yarn. Unfortunately, I hate the bike ride here. They’re repairing the road along the way and rough asphalt and skinny road tires don’t like to get along.  And the most annoying part about this all is the distinct lack of bike racks. Oh, I know, these box malls cater to people who are stuck in their cars, even if they do live half a block away or whereever. It’s evident by the lack of bike lanes, racks and even consideration from drivers. This place is awful because there’s always too many cars. That’s why I’m waiting for the lunch time rush to be over to gather my belongings and remove myself from this location.

Anyway, I’m beginning to feel like I’ve lingered too long here, and I’m not even doing anything particularly important.  The Starbucks asian noodle salad was actually pretty yummy. The venti soy vanilla latte was typical.  I’m on vacation, but I don’t know if that means that I’m excused from domestic chores and grocery retrievals. I feel like I have a lot to do… but I don’t want to do it. The consequence of it is that I don’t get home prepared meals. Oh well, we’ll see how we do.

I’m out of here.
