Saying Goodbye

Last night after work I stopped into one of my favorite restaurants, Krua Thai. The running joke with that place is "Are they going to be open?" They have been known to just shut down and just for "today". Nevertheless, I picked up some spicy pad Thai, and while i waited they brought me fresh lemonade, gratis! I love that place. And as I was driving down university, looking at all my favorite hangout joints... I realized just how much i was going to miss living in the Frog-Town, Midway area. Along University Ave are some really amazing places to eat, get together with friends and have laughs over great food. No more quick and convenient, Saigon Restaurant, Krua Thai, Mai Village, Little Schezhwan, Hoa Bien, Cafe Bon-xai, West Indies Soul cafe... I'm heading to the burbs where i can imagine great hole in the wall places don't really exist.
Not that I can't come back, but it won't literally be right in my backyard any longer. I also of course, will miss my friends that live so close... all the east-siders that make life so happy. And maybe one of the saddest parts about moving is no longer living 8 miles from K&K! I mean i know we are family and we'll always be "close" but K&K are more like the oldest friends you've ever had. Actually Kelly is my oldest friend, the only time we didn't know each other was for brief 9 months. I will miss St. Paul... The food, the diversity and especially the people.
Maybe i sound dramatic because its not like I'm moving to Tibet.... but things will just be a little different, not as convenient. Whhhhaaaaaa..........

Yeah, I'm gonna miss our impromptu get togethers and rendezvous at our favorite joints. Maybe Perkins on Louisiana & 394 will be our new hangout--that's pretty exotic! And who's gonna help me lift sheetrock when Kelly's muscles fail??? kyle

I hear the North Memorial cafeteria is to die for. Great pudding. I'll definitely make the trip for that.
