Plunder the Influence

Hi all! Make sure you check out my awesome neighbor Adriane‘s contribution to the new show, The Storytellers, at the Glickman library. If you’re not in Portland (and even if you are), explore the blog for her project, Plunder the Influence. She asked all kinds of people in her life to submit photos of their [...]

Drive By Press

A few weeks ago Portland was treated to a visit by the fun guys of Drive By Press, sponsored by MECA. My neighbor alerted us to it, and since I always have about a million blank t-shirts hanging around, I grabbed a bunch and we went on down. It’s very cool: these two guys basically [...]

The Pumpkin Fairy brought me poop.

Yesterday Dave left at noon to go to Ohio for four days (he’s going there because he wants to vote in a swing state) (kidding). When he leaves town it’s usually the best idea for the rest of us to get out of the house so we don’t sit around feeling sorry for ourselves being [...]
