Things I observed about the greater Cleveland, Ohio area

  • Plenty of good post-coital food. If you're lazy and/or in a hurry to catch a flight, head to the Big Boy for a Brawny Lad or pulled pork sandwich. If you want to make a night of it, Jammy Buggar's in Lakewood has an ENORMOUS fish'n'chips plate with hand-cut fries and plenty of good beer.
  • Irony. Has not yet been invented in Parma, OH. All the Big Boy customers save me and my manfriend seemed very serious about their food.
  • Parks. Metroparks, specifically--lovely! I like a city which invests in green spaces.
  • Comic book shops run by ladies are the best. I'm speaking of Northcoast Nostalgic specifically. Great place! That'll be my new LCS when I move in November.
  • Roads. Suck. I have never seen so many potholes in my life.
  • Libraries. Rock! About five branches within easy distance of where I'll be living. Now if only any of them were hiring...
  • Symbols on houses. Lots of them--crowns, initials, sunbursts, etc. I saw this a lot. I have no idea what it's about. Yuppification of Amish hexes, perhaps?

A friend of mine went to Oberlin...I've always wanted to visit. I guess soon I'll have a chance!
