Album:2010:01-01 Portland Champagne and Roses

I decide to go up to Portland for New Years instead of Lindy Focus, primarily to save money and see a friend of mine who I haven't seen in ages.

The punchline is that this friend ends up having to take off for the weekend, and I end up having a nightmarish road trip from hell which ends up costing me many times what it would have cost to go to Lindy Focus.

Comedy.

My actual 2010 New Years moment happened as I was driving the bus in the cold mountain pass heading North, and I noticed my phone click over to 0:00, so I lifted my cat in the air, kissed her and wished her a happy new year, then continued to drive (at least until one of the bus systems broke down again.

I arrive and get
in a pile of people on the couch, which is exactly what I needed.
And it got even better
the next night. Left arm ho and right arm ho. [photo Yarrow Elana]
Solomon and crew
at the Sunday late night house party
Where I meet
the interesting and odd Aurora
Everyone always hangs out in the kitchen. The Original Hotcake House
in the morning, is supposedly a Portland hot spot, but nobody is there. Hrm.
On my way home
I spend 4 days in Eugene working on my Genset..
..and take a break
to go dancing in Eugene.
