books are better than boys

I like bicycles, beer, and books.
Some other things I like.

Some notes on my week in Seattle:
Seattle is green. Literally. There are so many plants. Everywhere. The plant life is so hardcore. It’s like, oh you want to put a sidewalk there, you think that’s gonna stop us? Bam. Covered with moss. You can’t beat us, so you might as well stop trying.
I think there may be some kind of city ordinance requiring everyone to have rosemary bushes in their front yards.
Hills. 
It is incredibly inspiring (and also fun) to be surrounded by so many people who want to geek out about the same things as you do.
We created a “geography bingo” game in which you had to spot things like cargo pants (so easy), to more difficult things like meeting and then having a shot with David Harvey. (Photo documentation was required. We eventually decided that if anyone achieved it they would automatically win. Everything.)
A few nights we hung out with some fellows from Seattle and they were kind enough to not laugh (just some eye rolling) when we toasted to Tobler’s Law.
So much good beer. Some of my favorites were Elysian's Mens Room Red and Ninkasi's Total Domination IPA and Spring Reign Ale. 
And lastly, I’d like to inform Seattle, WA, you have just been added to the very exclusive places I’d consider living list.
