It's spring, and Seattle is being suspiciously nice to me. It probably says something that I get all worried when things start to go well, waiting for three dozen other shoes to drop, but it has been pretty great. People are giving complicated thumbs up and buying drinks and giving friendly waves. I had my first drink sent to me from across the room. The other day a man crossed the street just to say something complimentary and then went back to what he was doing. All of my drawbridges are up right now but the activity on the other side of the moat is making me excited for this summer.

And things are blooming on my balcony, and it could certainly be a lot worse to be me. Keep it up, please, Seattle. I'll try not to let the attention go to my head.
