Portland Ghost Adventures.
A couple weekends ago, Franklin and I took a spontaneous mini road trip to Portland to meet up with two of our really good friends. We stayed at a haunted hotel, and drank lots of whiskey, in hopes that it would aid in fending off ghosts. We explored the "Hawthorne" neighborhood with our dear friend Joe, where he showed us an amazing bookstore (where I bought those sweet Oregon edition field note books), and some tasty-fine breakfast. I really really REALLY like Portland. Like, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since we left. We're going to try to make it a regular (perhaps monthly?) trip. Maybe we'll have game nights with Joe, and play nerdy board games, and maybe I will participate in a famicom-playing night that Franklin & Joe dreamed up long ago - in which they would pick out an obscure Famicom game once a week and play through it together. (speaking of which, have you seen these videos? SO GREAT! I want to watch them all, heehee). We also said farewell to our friend Shelby, who is going to live in Brazil for 2 months to live and work on an organic farm! How exciting and romantic, teehee.
