"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."

<Danelope> More important than anything, however, is the fact that I have a burrito.
<bda> I wish I had a burrito.
<Danelope> <Customer> Whaaat? Your prices went up!
<Danelope> <Burrito Guy> Yes, a little. But our food is delicious!
<Danelope> <Burrito Guy> Our beef and pork are naturally-raised without hormones or antibiotics, and our vegetables are all organic!
<Danelope> <Burrito Guy> The only thing that isn't all-natural is our chicken, because we still haven't found a source for all-natural chicken yet.
<Danelope> <Customer> Oh.
<Danelope> <Dan> So you're still growing all your chickens in test tubes, then?
<Danelope> <Burrito Guy> Yes, but they're delicious test tubes!
<Danelope> <3 Seattle
<bda> haha.
<bda> The only thing I've heard anyone say today was "Shit, I gotsa get me some leather"; the checkout girl at Wawa referencing the previous customer's leather jacket.
<bda> Safe to say our cities have very different personalities.
<Danelope> Yeah, Philly sucks. You should move to Seattle.

I think the big issue with Philly is that whole Proximity To Jersey thing. Seattle would probably be bitchy if it was the DMZ between a toxic waste dump and Deliverance.

Yes, but it *isn't* see? That's the whole "Seattle is better than Philly" thing.

Yeah. However, you're closer to Canada. And Microsoft. And Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Mormons and Mount Saint Helens.

Also starbucks.
