Pizza with Elanor

Greetings from Oakland folks. California has been excellent. So excellent that, before today, I had only taken one photo. Of a 1960's cookbook (it was full of amusingly terrible recipes, if that helps my case). Today, though, I met up with one of my best blog pals Elanor in Berkeley. And though we didn't take too many photos, it was only because we were chatting and giggling so much that we forgot to take out all of our cameras (she was carrying THREE, including a phone). We did a little bit of shopping. She got this adorable dress from Crossroads, and I finally picked up a cute mid-length skirt from Mars (the planet. Not the planet, I'm lying). After an awful lot of walking and searching and deliberating, we decided to get lunch at a little place called Jupiter, where all the food was named after ancient Greek heroes/villains/gods/goddesses. I really wanted to order the Odysseus pizza for obvious reasons, but it had mushrooms and feta cheese on it and I do not like mushrooms or feta cheese. Alas! I think I ended up getting the Titan pizza? It started with a T at least. It was yummy. Extra yum points for being thematic. We mostly took pictures of each other eating and drinking. Elanor took a few GEMS of me blinking and drinking simultaneously that I sure hope she posts. All in all, it was such a lovely afternoon catching up. It's so easy to talk to Elanor and I'm happy I got to see her while I'm out here. As corny as it sounds, I'm so thankful for blogging for introducing me to such good friends like Elanor. I hope she visits New York soon!

    You look adorable and this looks like so much fun! A pizza place that has food named after mythology? I have to visit there one day! I wish you were coming a little more south to Southern California so we can see each other again, but I'm hoping to go to NYC late Summer/Early Fall this year so hopefully we'll see each other then! :) Have a fun rest of your trip my dear!

  8. Yay for adventures that make you forget about documenting them.
