The Long Walk to The Long Walk

Good way to spend this evening: I walked, first to a Burgerville (cheeseburger with carmelized Walla Walla sweet onions), then up to Division where a bus pulled right up in front of me -- yay for unplanned good timing! -- which I rode to 39th before walking up to Hawthorne. I took care of a purchase mixup at Fred Meyer, then went to Powell's on Hawthorne and bought a couple of books I want to pass along to Alicia.

One of them: a used copy of the original omnibus edition of Stephen King's The Bachman Books, including my personal favorite of those, The Long Walk.

A long walk to The Long Walk. That's almost elegant. (Heck, it could practically be a mantra.)
