Love/Hate Relationship with Portland

The roomie and I went to Portland for the weekend to visit a good friend of mine from way back in my youth (aka high school). It was a lot of fun since it had been a while since I had been in Portland and since Maegan and I had hung out in general. It is always nice just to get away for awhile
The "hate" part of Portland is basically whittled down to the speed limit (never has that term seem so appropriate) and the fact that most bars close at 1am at the latest. There seemed to be other things that were bothersome to us at the time, but I can't recall the rest.

The "love" part, well there are so many things that I love about the city. And perhaps simply because it isn't home is what makes it seem so much fun. Or perhaps because it really is just that cool. Either way, always makes for a good weekend. I definitely for see more trips down there in the future. It is much easier now that I have a car and not in school anymore. Plus with Les and Maegan in the same place, there is no excuse for me not to be there more often.

Favorite moments:
(mmmm... beer and doughnuts, life is good)

Mmmmmm...Donuts. I'm jealous.
I had "western" food tonight - a Philly Chicken Cheese Steak Sandwich, but it gave me a tummy ache.
