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.
happy belated birthday to me! last night michael & i dressed up and he took me to the heathman, where i managed to keep down my first solid meal in 5 days. i think he went all crazy at gorey details (ee!), but he says he's still waiting to see what will needs to be bought for burning man. :) birthday song: kate bush, l'amour looks something like you. awwwww. and then portland gave me a belated birthday present today: a thunderstorm! a serious one! i was at dawson creek when it began to hit, and i eventually got soaked. nothing makes me happier faster than a thunderstorm. :D
burdell is moving and my email has been queasy all day as the ip takes some time to propogate. so i've been sending from mac.com this afternoon: anything i sent earlier may take some time to filter through the queue. you might want to send to email@example.com for a bit.
for the last couple of days, i keep finding myself saying the wrong word: i'll say "stars!" while pointing to my shoes, for instance. this afternoon, after thinking "turkeyturkeyturkey" all the way through the line, i ordered a tuna sandwich. it reminds me of the time i ordered sour cream instead of cream cheese for a bagel, even though the skeptical waitress asked me twice if that's what i meant.
update 08.10.03: last night i kept saying "mushroom" when i meant to say "marshmallow."
