i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
amelia seems more alert today, though it might be a side affect of hunger, as we can't feed her for 48 hours, and she wasn't eating anything before, either. the silver lining is also a drastic reduction in the amount of gifts. maybe amelia should just have her own blog....
with all this cat-u-drama, i've been lax about what else i've been doing with my time, and my former carefree days of reading, shopping at zupans and wandering longingly to elephant's deli look like they're over for a while, at least. as previously noted, my email volume has shot way up thanks to craigslist and i'm busy scheduling & attending social events. i've now gone to the tao of tea, sushi town & veritable quandry, among others, which are places i would have liked to have gone and was glad to have new people to go with. tonight: demetri's & washington park; tomorrow: chez machin; friday: mt. tabor. so in that sense, the craigslist ad has been very successful. i also managed to land a gig as an artist's model, which is harder than it looks, thank you very much! in addition, michael & i watched the wicker man dvd, and i gotta place it in the "odd, and not necessarily in a good way" and "glad i saw it, but won't see it again" categories, along with picnic at hanging rock. for a great deal of the movie i kept thinking, why did john want me to see this before burning man? -- until the end, of course.
what's that? unpacking? oh, look at the time...
hey, matt found me! *waves* i think the only people left who don't know i'm here are doug & miriam. once i figure out the whole birthday celebration bit aug 9/10, there will be invites all around.
