It's weird being in Milpitas. I have a tendency to forget this city exists. It's right next to San Jose, but on the northern end, next to the industrial areas and the airport. What I mean to say is that Milpitas isn't exactly a desirable area like Los Gatos or Cupertino. It doesn't help that the city is torn up by freeways ripping through it; it's a city one drives through, en route to other places. But it seems like a nice enough area.
We did some shopping while we were up there. There's a nice comic book store called Black Cat Comics that had a really friendly guy working behind the counter. It's one of those places I'd totally patronize if it was closer to home - but the fact that I'd have to drive forty minutes to buy a $4 magazine makes it hard to justify the effort.
