Greece is the word

Season's eatings

Cue some

Vincent Price laughter

right now as I think about my friends back East who are finally getting their winter. They were so smug a couple of months ago, when it was warmer in NYC than Phoenix, but now I'm getting my silent revenge.

Guess what, guys? It's February, it's pushing 80 degrees this week, and I'm already able to wear the springy new shirt I bought the other week. And I left my jacket at home! (hee hee)

What's making my spring fever even crazier is all the food stuff going on -- this weekend alone, there's the Greek Food Festival down at Tempe Town Lake (moussaka! baklava! Sign me up!), as well as the Scottsdale Fine Art & Chocolate Festival over at the Pavilions. If you're into cool old cars, hit up the chocolate fiesta on Sunday, when the place will be packed with sweet vintage rides (like it is every week).
