Here I am in Seattle and it's sunny, again. What's with the weather here? I came for some cloud. I came for some rain. I came to get cool and what do I get? Sun, sun and more sun. If I wanted sun I could have stayed in Houston.
I'm here all week visiting my pals at Microsoft. Yeah, I know I'm a Mac user and, in fact, I'm typing this on my trusty PowerBook at this very moment. But, I must say, Microsoft Word on the Mac is pretty cool. Checks my speling and everything.
Tonight we went to a restaurant here in Redmond and I had fish tacos. For those of you who have not had fish tacos it's a good treat. You can make them yourself, too.
These used halibut, lightly sauteed with a tangy, spicy mango sauce. As with all fish tacos I've had it was served with a nice cole slaw, guacamole and salsa. We started with oysters and calamari.
The halibut was very firm and tasty and the calamari was cooked to perfection, very tender. The place is called Matt's and I recommend it.
As for Microsoft, tonight we saw a preview of the next version of Office, code named Office 12, and it was Way Cool. And for me to say that about Microsoft, well, you can take that to the bank.
More reports on food and software later this week. For now, it's late and this stuffed hushpuppy is turning in.
