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.
last night philip & i went to alex's to watch spirited away. a delightful movie, though i did end up breaking the butterfly chair. we tried using using the english dub and running the subtitles at the same time, but they were just different enough that it became distracting.
today i actually got to see the building washers/painters as they glided past the window. we smiled at each other and i was glad i was dressed.
tonight michael & i will go to a dinner w/ madeleine albright. this is one of the advantages of dating the coolest librarian you know.
the "free nw" group has vanished in a huff: the moderator felt he was doing all the work but i thought his standards were too high for a group which had just started out, especially since portland freecycle started at just about the same time. his focus was also much broader, which i think ironically limited its appeal.
