Saturday morning, I woke up and headed to Portland. It's a great city. If you haven't been, I strongly suggest it. I met up with my bff and her hubby. Then our sweet curly haired Laura (I call her Luna Marie) came over and we all walked and shopped. Carina helped me find some sunglasses. (She was an optician not so long ago.) I have a terribly hard time finding sunglasses that don't make me look like an unattractive tranny.
The gals then went to see Obsessed. It was, as expected, so bad it was good and called for a very interactive theater experience. (Laughing at Beyonce's terrible performance, yelling at the screen, etc...) It was a great trip with great friends. Even though I don't see as much as I would like of any of the people mentioned in this post (except Beyonce - I like her, but I feel like I see a whole lot of her already), it's hard to imagine that in a month I'll be seeing even less of them. That's the thing about close friendships though, it's not the proximity that ties you together, it's the love. Wherever we all end up, I know this will live on.
A big thank you to the fantastic black vanilla rose for tagging me. (I was always a very slow runner, coupled with the fact that I didn't give a damn, so I was tagged a lot as a child. This, however, is far more fun!)
Rules to follow... if you're the kind who follows rules: Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own. Tag five other un-tagged people.

what was the last thing you bought? forever 31 sunglasses (i'm sorry, but i never get tired of calling it that. what can i say? it's funny to me.) also, why would a store name itself something that makes you feel old every time you walk in? i don't get it. maybe it's because when you feel bad about yourself you're more likely to buy things in an attempt to feel better. that's the only explanation for the almost unlawfully bad lighting in dressing rooms.
