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.
when we last left our intrepid readers, i had mentioned something about the pastry restaurant pix, which hosts a "concoct your own dessert" event the second friday & saturday of every month. pix is a tiny, tiny place packed with a ton of people that serves tiny, tiny desserts packed with a ton of drooling goodness. in this case, we filled out a slip of paper which asked for some of this and a little of that and one of those and oh, yes, a sparkler! they bring you the ingredients you ask for on a silver tray and you make something up! it was tremendous. then they take your picture & ask you to name it: sven's got the pix & menulets he says he'll scan soon. [update 06.17.03: pix pix are now available!]
then i took sven to the waterfall behind keller fountain and i ended up crashing at his place in part because of this thinly excuciating sugar headache i was experiencing which is just now beginning to let me feel normal and it was worth every second. :D
michael & i replaced the back seat in trixie tonight and it feels pretty sturdy, but there's a mysterious gap between the back seat and the trunk which wasn't there before. hmmmm. tomorrow philip, john & i go to the shrewsbury renaissance faire, so it's off to bed with me now.
