happy VD, clap, everybody, clap!

February 14th, 2010

(because you knew i had to say it.)

steve took me out for a bite to eat. and vodka, cuz we’re moving and it was the middle of the afternoon and I was having an “episode.”

steve, looking around the bar (because where else would you go, in North Portland, in the middle of the afternoon on Valentine’s Day?): “I won’t miss the ironic North Portland hipsters.”

me: “yes you will.”

then i eyed four sets of lesbians making out at the bar. four sets. that’s sixteen breasts, for those of you who are counting. i gave a little sigh.

“I’ll miss that.”

i was thinking, i’ve lived in North/Northeast Portland my entire life, right? Then steve asks, Didn’t you live in New York? (my son, suddenly impressed): “You lived in New York?” me: “yeah, for awhile.)

and i lived in Southeast (off Hawthorne, and in Ladd’s Addition, in an old church; also in a heinous apartment complex in Southwest for awhile; and in chi-chi Multnomah Village — Southwest PDX — and in chi-chi Westmoreland — Southeast PDX).

I’ve lived other places.

i’ll be fine.

house on market asap; will keep y’all posted. It stinks like cleaning products in here, gives me headache and sneezes. am glad i’m not frantic mad housekeeper; it can’t be good for your brain cells.


your little hunny,

    Cleaning is not good for your brain cells. That is how I have stayed so smart over the years. I don’t clean. Thunderous applause.

    Vixen, yes! Finally, people, she has admitted the secret to her success and youthful skin.

    Happy Valentine’s Honey. Moving is so very hard (and we’ve done it alot)! I’m sending love and light and boxes in case you need them.

    I’m pouting that you’re moving… it’s like watching Anikan turn into Darth (yes, cultural reference from a movie I actually haven’t seen). Okay, that breaks down because I know (in my head) that you’re not going to a land of evil. Maybe it’s like thinking you’re taking a bite of chocolate when it’s actually carob. All I know is, it might be healthier for everyone, but it still ain’t what I like. Nope. I like the wacky family in a place where we might run into each other at the grocery store or bar.
    Anyway, hoping for your sake that the house sells before it needs to be cleaned again. Just in case, stop over and spend some time makin’ a mess at our place!

    Clap for VD and Chlamydia is not another pretty flower.
    So here are my best moving hints, if you haven’t used it in two years, give it away unless it’s a sentimental item.
    #2- the dishwasher is your friend and a good place to put things in a hurry when showing the house.
    Good luck!
