Our Lives In Portland, Oregon

So I thought I'd post a couple of details to give you a sense of the lives my sister and I are leading here in Portland, Oregon:

• I'm in a coffee shop trying to wake up, and realizing that my single biggest expense is coffee and snacks that I buy to use wifi networks while blogging.

• I got a text message from Hannah this morning that reads: "Dude, I just found a giant trash bag of corn on the side of the road!"

• I got lost biking home from a friend's house last night and spent 45 minutes in a kind of Einsteinian space-time loop while listening to NOFX and the Shins. 

• Hannah and I held the inaugural "Goat Night" where we (the children of vegetarians) attempted a goat meat saute while singing Frankel karaoke. Our version of "Sneakin' In" by the Coup must be heard to be believed. 

• It takes herculean amounts of willpower to avoid buying books at Powell's, despite the fact that I have no way to get them home.

30+ yrs ago I spent 2 mos on the Navaho Nation, the only time I've been among herders (of sheep). The standard thing to cook for groups/guests was mutton stew--meat, potatoes, onions--no carrots, not grown in the high desert I guess--and no beans or squash even though they are grown there. So what do goat herders do with goat I wonder?? Mom
