soup release

Thomas took me to Adobe today, we had a nice tour but I probably gleaned more about the mood and tone of the work environment than about what is actually happening. The cafeteria had a decent donut, perhaps on par with the ones from the Sherwood Co-op. As I've signed a non-disclosure agreement upon entering the Adobe building, I can say no more.

I walked about the area (Freemont) and took many photos of architecture and public art. There is a troll crushing a VW Bug under the Aurora bridge. We then coffeed at Peet's, which is owned by the people who started Starbuck's and had originally learned the coffee trade from Peet's, so suffice to say, it was a good place. Best part, the coffee size choices were "small", "medium", and "large".

We went to Zanadu Comics, nice guy running the place, I bought a couple of local comics and Thomas bought all of the "Concrete" collections as well as the hardcover collection where Captain America dies. Apparently he is still dead, even though his comic is still running (at least 8 issues) and is better than ever. They have a good supply of Manga, probably 20% of their wall space, even though it only constitutes 5% of their sales. The other comic store nearby, Comics Dungeon, no longer sells Manga except by special order.

I'm so jealous that you are able to check out such interesting comic stores. I'm glad you posted the names so that I can look them up. Perhaps I need to travel to Seattle to visit them myself :-D
