Things I'd Never Seen Before

Seattle was an interesting place to go for the first time. In just a few short hours, I couldn't believe the number of things I saw for the first time in my life. Like:

Pike Place - A farmers' market that actually has good stuff! Holy delicious displays of seafood and veggies, Batman!

Ah-hah! I told you they were real!

Sad, but true. I'd never seen a black truffle in person before this week.

I still don't know what that cabbage-looking flower is. I'm sure Google knows, but I'm feeling lazy.

The Spiced Noodle. Uhh, I mean the Space Needle.

Other things I'd never seen before: a container ship, Mount St. Helens, paper soap, a talkative TSA employee, or a library that looks like an anvil.

In case you're curious, I was in Seattle for a job interview. It went extremely well and I was told to expect a job offer early next week. Keep those fingers crossed...unless you want us to stay in Milwaukee ;)


  1. Peter, I was there a year ago and it was very nice. Very clean. I liked it. The rock museum was big overrated. The Hendrix exhibit was closed and the guy got mad at me for taking photos of the guitars.

  2. Wow, impressive pics and links! Interesting design for a library. LOVE the paper soap, why didn't they come up with this a long time ago? I'm getting some!

    I read once that Seattle is among the top 5 cities in the U.S. to raise children! My fingers are crossed for you (and toes, and eyes)!!!

  3. Whoot-Whoot!! I hope you get it! (unless you don't want it) Maybe you can give my husband some job searching hints.

  4. Congrats on the great interview (though my vote would be Rochester, New York)!!
