So, Shannon (old friend originally through Lutherlyn) is here for ten days of Jake and Julie adventures. In the past she and I have gone on many adventures that involve singing in the car, drinking at a campfire, hiking, climbing, and lounging in the wilderness. She and I spent last night in Portland, enjoyed wings and jaeger bombs, watched the fireworks, and enjoyed spending time with my Portland friend, Lauren. Today we purchased hippie paraphernalia at the Portland Saturday Market and then organic groceries at the Salem Saturday Market. A perfect crunchy start to her first trip to Oregon.
Shannon and Jake seem to have an unspoken agreement that some of my thoughts are nonsensical. It's a conspiracy. Well, I'll get back at them somehow as we tube down a river, climb Smith Rocks, and explore all of the ecotones from here to Bend over the next few days. If you happen to speak to either of them- they're lying if it sounds like I am anything less than an intelligent, sophisticated woman.
AHHH...they're talking about OIL! I just heard the phrase "misallocation of resources". GET ME OUT OF HERE! Does anyone want to escape with me and go on a hunt to find a man-eating plant?
