I can't tell you how normal and refreshing it feels to sit my ass in my regular desk chair and spin about a bit.
Some observations about our fair city since I've been gone:
1) Crime is SO bad here that I found myself becoming paranoid when the three cities I was in over the last couple weeks didn't seem overtly threatening at all.
2) What is up with all the funeral homes in Tremont? Is there a reasonable historical explanation? I know that's the neighborhood where employed Clevelanders go to have their cars stolen today - did it used to be the place where Eastern European Clevelanders went to die in yesteryear? Just wonderin'
That's all for now. I have some serious unpacking and email responding to do, and then some nice summer grilling weather to enjoy.
Oh yeah, and Mac's Backs is having a pretty stellar event tonight I hope to make it eastward in time for.
Glad (mostly) to be back, pals.
