here it’s never-ending can’t remember when it started

today was a most glorious monday. astoundingly glorious, and as the day went on it got better and better. suddenly at like 2 p.m. seamus and kappa decided to go to dairy queen. so yeah, blizzards in the middle of the day? on a monday? good thing.

then there was FFJ’s decision that we should road trip to duluth to go see David Sedaris read. this one i’m really excited about. more excited than the idea of ice cream in the office on a monday. i’ve never seen Sedaris read and i’ve never been to Duluth. FFJ thought we should stay at some cute B&B, but i decided we should stay at some hotel near a bar or at a hotel with a bar.

then, the best part of the day. when i got home there was NO SISTER #4! she has a night class on mondays. it makes me giddy. so really, with her gone monday and tuesday nights and me gone thursday and friday nights, well we should get along much better than we have (and by not getting along i am totally talking about all the fights i have with her in my head, she who never shuts up and bitches about how i don’t cook food that she would like to eat).

i’m almost afraid to go to bed tonight because then this glorious day will be over.

    you’d be happy (almost impressed, even!) that i’ve actually been reading david sedaris. a lot of david sedaris. although, with his books, that probably wouldn’t surprise you.

    i have to thank my cousin for the recommendation, but still. national news: wendy is reading a book without pictures!

    Duluth is really a city with dual personalities. Or one with an evil twin, if you will.
    There’s the touristy, scenic side. And it’s really pretty with neat B&B’s and nice hotels and shops. Someone mentioned Fitgers. That’s really a brewery, with a bar, with a hotel.
    But the city is old and depressed. There are more seedy dives in that town than I’ve seen (next to Superior, WI). Places like the “Come on Inn,” the Tiwns Bar, the Kozy… they’re somewhat scary stops.
    Iff’n you go to Duluth (that’s right, I said ‘iff’n’), it’s worth it to check out the road less traveled, just for the color.

    Oh, and, I’m also told (though I really don’t know if this is true or not) Duluth is home to the largest white ghetto in the world, the central hillside neighborhood. How “largest” would be defined, I have no idea.

    Now there’s a tourist destination! White ghetto? Sounds like an oxymoron… heh.

    I saw Sedaris and he is more delish live than a Monday afternoon blizzard. I would gladly fight his boyfriend for one taste. Ok, maybe I’ve taken this a bit too far. Never mind.
