Blow, Winds...
Whoo, latest storm is bringing some ultra-blustery weather to London, although, as usual, it's a lot less wild than most other places. I was nearly knocked over in the park a couple of times.
Had a disturbing dream about being trapped in the persona of 'Carrie Bradshaw' out of SEX AND THE CITY. I was forced to mince and simper around various scenes of my NYC youth, in one of her absurd little outfits. One RL place I visited was a strange cafe called Phebe's Whamburger, which was around the corner from where I lived in the East 60's. It was one of those places that had a model railway track running around the counter that would deliver one's burger, or whatever. It all sounds quite funny, but I felt desperate.

Phebe's Whamburger!

Here in Seattle for the longest time there was the Iron Horse, which was another place where they'd send your food out to you on the cars of an HO-scale train. I loved it, though the food was indifferent. They closed it, as you might guess, and now the space is the Police Museum.

I looked up the Phoebe Warren residences, etc, and evidently she was this fascinatingly louche character, and all sorts of strange arty folk used to live in her buildings. Gangsters frequented the Whamburger! I think I lodged in the 68th street building just a few years too late to see anything interesting.
