I have discovered the Midwest. I mean, not by myself or anything, but after a life lived on either coast I was abandoned in Indiana* and I LIKE IT. There are things I miss, like good bagels, but right now I'm stuck in my log house in a snowstorm. How cool is that? Think hot cocoa and warm fireplace. And shoveling snow is very good exercise.
Does anyone else think Chicago is wonderful-er than New York and LA combined? Have you experienced a state fair where they actually have fried Oreos?
