The talking was followed by some exercising primarily consisting of the machine augmented running.
The next agenda item was a trip to Easy Street for a free in-store performance by OK Go. [pictures for people who like that sort of thing.] I like their new CD, and the very low price of free was difficult to resist. I though that their live show was surprisingly good, since the CD has a somewhat produced sound.
After the show and some wandering through the store, I met Ellen, Tim, and Amber in traffic. We drove to Le Pichet and Ellen found the best parking spot ever. Cori was waiting inside where New American Starlet was playing. I don't have any specific memories of their music, but it felt like the perfect accompaniment to the weather and the restaurant. We proceeded to eat many pleasurable foods. My lunch included a cheese plate, some salad, wine, and banana hazelnut fritters with ice cream.
I think that today is the clearest day that I've ever experienced in Seattle (or maybe anywhere). Before today, I didn't know it was possible to see the mountain ranges to the east of the city with such detail. The view from the highway was completely amazing.
It is starting to feel like spring, with daylight extending into the five o' clock hour.
Even though I hate the Grammy Awards, I think I'll watch for a few minutes.
