I miss Mountain View.

Not my job because I like my new gig. But the city of Mountain View, I miss.

My new gig is in a big office park. Applebee's is across the street. The biggest draws I've found thus far are Sports Basement and a bakery named A Sweet Affair.

Walnut Creek lacks the charm of Mountain View with its Jane's Beer Store, Tapioca Express and Global Beads.

I miss the $8, 5 minute threading. I miss the diversity of people and thought. I miss the subtle yet urgent smell of technological advances. And I miss the sound of the train. I even miss the musty stale smell of the secondhand bookstore.
