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.
well, that was a lovely blur of a weekend. :) michael is finally done with inventory (yay!) so i gave him some time off, which i spent mostly at sven's place watching "that guy who directed amelie" 's other movies (delicatessen and city of lost children). we walked around the neighborhood a bit and cheered on a slug as it crossed the sidewalk. i finally met his partner, alex (who made us soup this afternoon!). i picked up michael this afternoon at john's: we thought we were going to see bubbahotep with that group, but they never called. oh, well, more time for homemade caramel!
two nifty things happened to me friday:
* when i got to my car that evening, someone had rearranged the "a" and "play" magnets to compose "playa," then used those magnets to secure a twilight photo of the 6 o'clock road to burning man and a necklace with a lamplighters pendant! i have no idea how they knew i had been to burning man, as i no longer have any evidence outside or inside (except the dust), but yay! it's exactly the kind of thing you hope will happen to you. i'm leaving a string of poetry beads i hope they find (fire/artist; sing/play; heart/dance).
* a guy in the car next to me blew me a kiss and we passed each other for several miles on highway 26. he rolled down his window and shouted something at me, but it was lost in the rush of wind at 60 miles per hour and the roar of the other traffic. ee! nobody ever flirts with me. :)
