Sad (/interesting) note of the day: I learned that the Bagel Deli's fried cinnamon-covered bagels, were, in fact, inspired by East Lansing's own (depressingly departed) Bagel Fragel. However, the owner says that he'll never make them with cinnamon raisin bagels, because people here have gotten used to the substandard plain version.
Since I'm still readjusting to the pacific daylight time, I might try to temporarily become one of those people who goes to the gym in the morning. Starting tomorrow. Maybe.
