Posted elsewhere mid-October: Well friends, the eagle has landed... Lili and I arrived into Portland in the last few days of September. The whole drive took us about 8 days altogether and went extremely well! The saving graces were Sirius satellite radio and their comedy & new wave stations; Iowa wineries, cheese & fruit lunches and well-maintained picnic areas; lumbar pillows & 8-hour drive times and lastly, most importantly, having a co-pilot who's a fucking crack-up, at least when she isn't homesick.

While the Mrs. is dashing around attending two jobs interviews, I figured I'd fill you guys in. That way I feel less guilty in that I'm not doing the same. confused So I'm writing from the house that we're renting at the intersection of SE 43rd & SE Woodstock. Amazing neighborhood! It has reminded me of attending Berklee, walking out of the dorms and having everything I want within a three-block radius.

Yes, there is a but. Though it is a house we're renting, it is a heating hemorrhage. There's no insulation and the only source of heat is sketchy wall-mounted space heaters. We're talking about moving a couple of miles away, closer to Reed college. It's a apartment community that is sized & priced right but, I feel that it'd be a little isolated and farther from Amanda and her beau. We'll see...

Other than grumbling about our landlord, we're performing the usual filling in at home, replacing abandoned items left in Connecticut - TV's, computer desk, etc. The challenge in doing so is trying to avoid dashing to Ikea and just buying one of everything (Guiltily, we've done a little). We're instead trying to branch out and explore local shop and craft meccas. Saturday Market is a good example. Next week's purchase will likely be a baby bjorn-style dog carrier for wheeling around town with Eggy.

Okay, time served and breakfast is waiting. Good news is coffee's across the street & two cups are needed!
