I'll po YOUR lite!


I have moved back to Portland! Woo! (I also got a job here in town. The specific school will probably be kept to locked posts, unless I forget. Hi kids! I'm boring, but probably a slightly different boring than you thought I was!)

I'm in SW, which is not at all the part of town I work in, but I found a place where I can hook up my washer and dryer and fit my stuff, so I think it'll be ok. The bus commute will be long but book-infested and both commuting buses are frequent service routes (every 15 minutes or better for most of the day, 7 days a week) so I shouldn't need to deal with much in the way of annoying bus-logistics. I think this will work put pretty well. Also, 3 out of 4 grocery stores that I'm likely to shop at regularly are on the bus lines that pass by my apartment (WinCo looks to be a car-thing from here, but I mostly go there to buy bulk flax seeds and junk food every few months so I'm not too annoyed). Organic eggs are now only a half mile away, and they used to be 30. I am pleased. Also on my bus line: Moonstruck Chocolates and a 24-hour donut shop. I will lose no weight with this move no matter how much I avoid my car.

I also think I need to have a housewarming party! Details to follow in a filtered post. If you want on the party filter and don't see that post in the next few minutes, comment here and I'll add you (ability to attend my parties is not required for being on the party filter).
