I turn 32 on Friday!
I’m sort of over celebrating my birthday too much. I think that Paul and I are going to go to Portobello vegan Trattoria Friday night. I’ll have to remember to leave room for a fancy vegan dessert too! maybe we’ll have to go on Thursday to avoid the crowds of Friday nights.
Paul wants to get me a nice set of kitchen knives. I have a knife block but after years of housemates a few of them have walked away and they weren’t that great to begin with. Paul wants to get me a fancy new set and I’m stoked! We were going to go knife shopping yesterday but he seemed to be glamoured by the muses as I found him in bed with several piles of lyrics, a guitar, notebooks, and his tape recorder. How can I complain? I’m the same way about zines when the muse finds me. I made some breakfast burritos and then went on with my day including a trip to the post office and a Portland Zine Symposium meeting.
I just gotta say that I LOVE everyone working on the sympsoium this year. There were only 4 of us at the meeting but everyone was great. Then I rode home with Blue and Doug. I really like riding bikes in packs of people. On my way downtown my bike odometer hit 100 miles since I got back from the UK and France. That makes about 4 1/2 miles a day since I have gotten back. That’s pretty good. I need to keep that up this summer. Last year I was too distracted to ride enough but 2009 has continued to rule as much as I expected so I should keep up with riding more.
Time for some coffee and then waking Paul up for knife shopping and maybe a picnic if the day stays nice. I also need to take more pictures of my yard since new things are blooming these days.
