L.A. gets no respect as a bagel town. New York transplants grouse that the water doesn’t have the right blend of minerals, and Montreal expats lament the dearth of wood-fired ovens.

"A preconceived notion, a movement of thought,
brings us to assume what in fact, is not.
First glance, first touch, impressions are made,
carried over time 'til the truth is mislaid.

Oh, these little notions, what great things they hide!
The wonderful, quirky, tall person inside!
So it begins, an introduction to me,
I stand 5'2, but feel 6'3.
