tonight at 11

Are you ready for my big news, Internet? Are ya? huh, huh huh? Are ya?

In a month, I'll be a Portlander (is that the right term?). *applause*

I submitted my resignation today. And I'll put in my notice on my house tomorrow. No, we still haven't heard back from the potential landlord, but I didn't want to wait any longer. And I think this place will work out. If not, we can figure something else out, but I'm not worried.

SO, watch out, Portland. This girl is on her way. Portland employers, I hope you're ready to hire me. Friends in Portland, you're on call to help me move in. mmmmk?

Oh man, I'm SO excited!

I also realize I'll never truly fit in in Portland because of my thick ass Southern California accent.

as if


Now I'm on the fast track. This weekend is my dad's birthday. And then I have some last things to go through to sort for keeping or selling. The next weekend is my garage sale and a trip to Disneyland (I have a free pass for my work with Habitat for Humanity). The next weekend will be all packing to go. The next weekend will prob be my going away party and more packing. Aaaaaand the weekend after that? I'll be in PORTLAND! Woot!

Other than the short time I lived in Paris, I've lived in Southern California my whole life. And I am so ready for this move.  I turn 30 in a few months and I mean it when I say that I am totally ready for 30. Ready for the next chapter of my life. And moving is a huge part of that.

In celebration, a video that literally had me gasping for breaths I was laughing so hard when Coco showed me this today. This guy is utterly hilarious. I truly think he has a future in stand-up.

And cerebral palsy is the sexiest of the palsies. And no Atlantis is too under water of too fictional.

Congrats!!! That is so exciting! I remember when I moved from one part of the country to another and I was a little freaked out. But oh man am I so glad I did it. And you're right, everything will come together.

Also, I love that you posted Clueless. That may be my favorite movie of all time!

So I'm like, not totally sure I wanted to laugh at the guy's skit or feel like an asshole for thinking parts of it were really funny. As in, Is anybody ever really allowed to laugh at a guy with cerebral palsy? (Somebody make a Wikipedia page about THAT one!)

Anyway.

I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! I will come over next week to scavenge through your treasures, if you'll let me.

I think it's okay to laugh because he wants you to. it's his schtick. c'mon, "this isn't yoga, I'm just putting on pants" is highlarious!

and thanks, gorgeous! please do come scavenge! first come first serve and all.

I'm conflicted. On one hand, I have a very real irrational hatred of Portland. On the other hand, I'm turning 30 in a few months, too, and I'm feelin' ya. And on yet another hand, you have excellent taste in women. Also, that's one too many hands. So I'm going to proceed with caution and keep loving you despite your location. But watch your back, because that sneaky bitch Portland will totally cut you.

gracias, AWC. that's great advice and I'll watch my back in the Port Land. :) Also, you rock my world.

Oh Claud, of course I love you! you're my favorite (shh, don't tell the others)! Yes, you'd better come visit and stay at my new pad and we'll go to Voodoo donuts. *MUAH*

Portland is a great city, i've had some great times there. I know the Cali stigma over there, I think you will be fine though. Cheers!

Be sure to eat lots and lots of VooDoo doughnuts for me while you're in Portland. I'll be expecting reports.

Congrats on the move!
