Strike a pose


I’ve never looked more me. The pictures she took of me have made my heart so happy.





This is me. This is the Portland me. I have blue hair, color makes me uncomfortable, and I’m a pro at being pale.

 Margaret Jacobsen is an amazingly wonderful human being.

That’s really all I have to say about that.



I’d been hanging on to these for a while.

So last Thursday we got a little fancied up and headed over to the Ecotrust building (which is gorgeous).

This was the most Portlandia thing that Adam and I have done since we moved here.

It’s called Blind-Tasting Bingo. And, yes, you taste blindly. Fifteen courses of regional Mexican food cooked by the chef at Xico, Kelly Meyers. Fifteen courses of food eaten blindly and without utensils.


Bull Run Distillery was on hand serving up delicious cocktails. That made us happy.

Obviously didn’t take pictures of the food because I couldn’t see and because about half of it ended up on my face or my lap.

If you can score any tickets for Blind-Tasting Bingo, I’d highly recommend it. It was confusing and fun and such a neat experience.
