Pittsburgh

My friend Gracey blogs at Fashion For Giants. She grew up in Oregon, a beautiful place she misses. I met Gracey in person a few years ago when she visited New York City and we enjoyed a delicious Cajun meal at one of my favorite places.

Recently Gracey moved to Pittsburgh. She hates it there. Hates it! The ferocity of her dislike of the town is palpable. It's dirty! The people are rude! And they talk funny!

I rode to Pittsburgh yesterday to say hi. We had a delightful dinner and conversation. Gracey follows politics closely so we discussed and laughed at the political circus now going on.

In case you're wondering why Gracey's blog is so-named, here's a picture...




Actually we were standing on a staircase.  :-)

    2. P.S., Last night, I told Sara about my plan to visit Toronto -- because you're its star attraction. Sara's been there before and I was picking her brain about the city.

  8. Ok, the staircase! Still, to be tall! This must have been a fascinating conversation. Politics in this day and age, are so compelling, and controversial, and so nuanced, and darn right frightful! Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall.

  10. Lucky you. I haven't met not one blogger I follow. Heck I've never even met another person that blogs!
