Nice Gesture! - Last night a former client of mine and his girlfriend had me over for dinner (pumpkin soup with toasted pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of pumpkin seed oil - very fitting for an autumn evening), and they regaled me with stories of their recent trip to California. Hearing about their adventures brought back tons of old memories, or “memory-go-backs” as we call them in my family, and seeing their photos made me a bit homesick.
They were kind enough to bring me back a box of Cheez-Its and a big box of Ziploc bags. You know how much I love Ziploc bags!
Things that make me smile:
I came across this advertisement yesterday while walking through Votivpark near the Votivkirche/Schottentor.
The picture was taken at Cafe Goldegg, which is a few blocks from my apartment in the 4th. I smiled when I saw it because - first of all, what are the chances I would recognize the interior of one of the 6,000 cafes in Vienna - and second, because the corner booth is where Andy and I spent a couple hours when he was here in May.
Cafe Goldegg, by the way, is the ultimate shabby-chic ‘faded glory’ Viennese coffee house. Highly recommended.
