really wiggyfish's photos were so pretty i had to try it. Actually no, I'm going to visit Ian, a college friend there. Who I last saw in person in 1995 and last spoke to around 1997, though we've done letters and email ever since. I was really nervous to call him out of nowhere and say "hey i was going to come up and visit, whaddaya think?" Even though every letter he's sent me for the past five years has included a "you should come to Portland" line. So I gathered all my courage and called and i leave in a week. It'll be an adventure.
