Sara, Bruce and I took a quick trip up to Seattle. Our primary mission was to visit friend Eliz and select buttons for our shawl collar sweater project. Unfortunately, a highway breakdown delayed out trip by a half day as we waited out an alternator repair in Winlock, Washington. (Happily, this permitted us to catch up on Hollywood gossip courtesy of Payneless Auto’s well stocked library of Entertainment Weekly magazines).

While we had to postpone our trip to Centralia Knitting Mills, we did make it up to Seattle in time to enjoy salted caramel ice cream with friend/DJ/author Kurt Reighley who is about to go on the road to promote his new book, United States of Americana. Saturday, we visited The Field House and some of our usual to-dos: eateries, farmers markets, movies, bike shops and coffee shops. Here’s our new favorite Double Americano companion:

  1. Nice fill someone in on and this mail helped me alot in my college assignement. Say thank you you as your information.

  2. I think this movie is very funny and stands out as one of the fiusnent Christmas movies of all time. I am however very disappointed in the dvd version of this movie. Fortunately,I only paid seven dollars for the movie or I would be very upset. The movie seems as if they took a regular vhs copy of the flick and scanned it and burned some copies. I only had to watch about five minutes of the movie to see that Warner Brothers did nohing to restore this movie to a near perfect condition which dvd users are used to. Im very disappointd and expected so much more from this movie.
