I'm in Lexington, KY at the moment for a wedding. It's so nice to step on a plane in one climate and step off in an entirely different one. It's definitely winter here...err, a California winter and I guess maybe a Kentucky fall. Right. It's gorgeous here...and slow. So slow. People actually have time to be polite. It's making me want to move out of LA even more than I always do. How nice to breathe in clean air. How nice to wear coats out of necessity and not fashion. How nice to be surrounded by history and charm. How nice.

On a slightly indirectly related note, two days before I was supposed to get on the plane, I lost my wallet after a dinner date. Well, briefly lost my wallet for about ten psychotic minutes. Definitely cool and calm on the outside but inner turmoil bubbling out of control with OCD madness. I've never lost my wallet in my life. IN MY LIFE. So I was more disappointed in myself than shocked at the actual loss. I had it getting into the car leaving the restaurant but discovered its absence after a stop at a nearby plaza for late night snacks. We went back to the restaurant and traced our steps with no luck. We almost gave up but thought we'd drive back to the nearby plaza and give the 711 one last look since that's where we were parked in front of. Hadn't initially crossed our minds since it's a notoriously sketchy 711 where a lot of homeless people congregate outside of. I think we just dismissed it accepting there was a 1% chance that if it was found, it would be turned in. I walked in more as a mechanical last ditch effort than actually hoping to find it, but there it was sitting on the counter. Never doubt the 1%.
