Go-go with all your heart.

Breakfast: pancakes with real maple syrup, sausage, two eggs sunny side up and endless cups of the most wonderful smelling and tasting coffee.
What the heck? The Emergency Relief thrift store was open on Good Friday but not today?
The new art gallery under construction. It seems you either hate it or hate it. I think I like it. Right now it looks like something collapsed – this is what it’s supposed to look like when it’s finished:
Bought my ticket to see this dude.
To the library for cds and dvds
but my membership had lapsed and I didn’t want to wait in line to renew and risk a parking ticket.
Made the thrift rounds in the northeast part of town which I don’t get to very often.
…because it sucks. No thrift finds. I also trolled a couple of Giant Tiger stores I hadn’t been to before for remaindered dvds.
Late lunch at Sunterra market on the south side. Delicious soup (more like a stew) chock full of chicken chunks in spicy coconut milk broth. Then grocery shopping at Spinelli’s for pizza fixin’s.
Homemade pizza with bocconcini, feta and olives.
Enjoy your Easter.

I got back from vacation a few days ago. Me and my buddy Gary made a quick trip down to Seattle to celebrate International Tiki Day with friends. I’ve documented the tiki aspects of this trip elsewhere on the internets – I’m only going to blog about other stuff here.
We really liked this moose sculpture made from horseshoes. In northern Idaho somewhere – I forget where exactly.
At Mary Lou’s Milk Bottle in Spokane they make insanely fabulous milkshakes.
I really need to add this to my Big World website.
More Spokane funkiness. The Garland Theatre – “Tops in Shows”
Thunderbird Motel in Ellensburg WA.
Americans like biscuits and “gravy” for breakfast.
Booze is cheap in the States. Air? Not so much.
Returning through Spokane: Downtown has many beautiful historic buildings and a lot of them are being refurbished.
The newly restored Fox Theatre, a former Art Deco movie palace, is impressive. Too bad the box office person wouldn’t let us poke around inside.
Spokane again. Frank’s Diner in a beautifully restored presidential rail car.
This was creepy.
The food was nothing special – canned corn, chicken fried chicken, more of that pasty white gravy.
My favorite roadside building on this trip was this “barber ship” in Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho.
Darling, isn’t it?
Some of the thrift stores I stopped at along the way.
My favorite thrift find, in Cranbrook BC: A Trader Vic’s of Hawaii seahorse mug for a buck (been looking for one of these babies for awhile).
