Just spreading the word for a friend of mine. 🙂

Blah, Blah, Blah

I heard that spring is officially here so why does it still feel like winter in Portland. No, we don’t have snow. We very rarely do. At least, not in the valley. In fact, I think it snowed only three or four times this past “winter” and they were mere dusting. That was our only indication that the season indeed changed from autumn to winter. I truly wished we had the true four seasons here in Stumptown. Of course, I really shouldn’t complain about what we do or don’t have here by way of seasonal changes. I mean, it couldn’t be any worse than what’s happening in the Midwest right now.

Presidential hopeful Barack Obama will be in Portland today and all 10,000 of the free tickets were snatched within minutes of their being available a few days ago. So fast and in hot demand they were, in fact, that some very keen people decided to sell their free tickets on Craigslist. And I heard that people are actually buying them. Thank G-d capitalism isn’t dead.

I guess the U.S. has been at war with Iraq for five years now. What have we got to show for it? Let’s see: nearly 4,000 dead soldiers, the value of the dollar continues to go down while gas prices endure its upward momentum, a looming economic recession, and George W. Bush still believes he’s doing things right.

Easter is just around the corner. Not only is that day a celebration of our Lord rising from the dead, it is also a day of hope and peace and joy. The ultimate joy I personally will feel is that I’ve decided to allow myself to drink Espresso again once Easter comes around. Yipee!
