Made it to Portland! Already things are off to a pretty productive start. This morning I went out for a run on my favorite running path, and at one point I thought, hmm, wouldn’t it be funny if I ran into Melissa? I then ran around the corner, and there was Melissa running up the hill!!!! I kid you not (and no, I’m not psychic, but once in a while I get these little premonitions). I forced her to stop and chat, and then we ran down the hill together.
Other things accomplished:
– got a hair cut (yup, on a Sunday!)
– bought new running shoes
– called all my Portland homies (heh, I can’t believe I used that term)
– visited the fancy new French bakery in the neighborhood
– bought and sampled a Slitti Lattenero chocolate bar (most chocolate purists go for dark chocolate, but I confess to preferring milk chocolate. Good chocolatiers are now starting to make milk chocolate bars, and the Slitti is a highly rated one. It is quite good, but hello, $6.79 for a chocolate bar? I think I do need to try the 51% bar, though, for comparison’s sake … )
And that, dear readers, is probably WAY more than you wanted to know. Hope everyone had a good, springy weekend.

    I always get such a chuckle from what a small town Seattle is. You can’t go out anywhere without seeing people you know. But Portland’s even smaller. How funny.
    Also, is it just me or does Portland have a hair salon on every single city block?? There can’t be that much hair to cut in the entire city. It’s worse than coffee shops in Seattle.

    So is the new french bakery any good? We were going to check it out last time we were in Portland but didn’t get around to it. Hope you have a great visit!

    I’m a little late to the party but that Ribby looks good enough to eat! I hope it fits – I can’t imagine that dandy candy goin’ for a swim in the frog pond. I’ll cry real tears!!!
    Love that guy at Zipper Stop – I’ve had him on the phone twice now – he told me he don’t like the email thang. The blue zipper on my latest Lovie Aran Cardi came from them!
