Ugh.. fester

Well, back from "the City". Many many MANY thanks to Anne-Catherine and Nagui for generously playing host for the weekend, and thanks as well to MS HYLARY for coming and visiting me on Sunday. 

Oregon FINALLY had it's primary Tuesday night. I was sad to see Steve Novick lose, but all around it was a great night for Democrats. Senator Walker does not get to be Secretary of State, which is a good thing. 

Wednesday I attempted to take "the Hill" at OHSU on my bike. Got to Doernbecher before I felt like I was going to hurl, and it was time to walk from there. But, it certainly gives me a goal for the summer bike-commuting season. 

Today I woke up and felt as though my sinuses were coated with concrete. No choice but to call in sick today. Hopefully sleep and Valencia oranges will get me straightened out.

Talk about a hiatus...

So I was looking at my blog... the blog I haven't updated in 4 months. 

I'm sitting the E terminal at PDX waiting for an hour to get on my plane, because I'm that chump that takes the 2-hours early thing seriously. 

I've already started the unwise spending for my weekend to San Francisco. Actually it all started two weeks ago with some serious cash expenditures for my new bike (which, admittedly, is pretty bitchin'). But at the airport, I suddenly became the owner of books by Richard Dawkins and Hugh Laurie. I'll take poncey English quasi-authors for 1000, Alec (alright, Hugh Laurie isn't poncey, but still). 

Anyway. 30 second recap on the last four months. Became a reserve police officer. Bought a condo. Almost sold the Jeep. Kept the Jeep (in defiance of all financial logic).
