My brother arrives tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it. I have a list of things that I'd love him to do around here. A list of suggestions of fun things for the two of us to do in town. A list of places to eat - mostly places I've never been but have been wanting to try. And reservations at the hottest new place tomorrow night. It's Sawyer's in Ballard. Our reservations are at 6:30. They have closed off the main way to get from here to there. And we'll be going at rush hour so I'm thinking we'll need to leave straight from the airport when he lands at 12:45. Not really but maybe.
The traffic around here is going to suck big time for the next six weeks but then, if/when/after they open the new tunnel through the middle of town, other major road work will ensure the suckage continues for years to come. There's another tunnel through town that services the light rail and buses. They are closing that to busses in March to ensure that the traffic through town will be as clogged as possible. It's so difficult to understand how transportation decisions are made in this town. In truth, I've never actually understood west coast politics. But, otherwise, I do love the place.
No big plans for today. Well, aside from 'making' 20 tiny books.
