where the cool kids are

I wouldn’t call myself a cool kid…

really I wouldn’t and if you’d ever seen pictures of me in my early teens you would understand why…

I seem cool from time to time now but if you understood my roots…

It’s just that…

Oh to hell with it… This is what I looked like at 13


Note the deep tan on my arms that did not make it to my face. Revel in my huge glasses. Mock the hair that took an hour (or more) to curl and style… though that’s my natural hair color… Check out the incredibly posed elbow on the piano. Make sure to remember that Cami does not play the piano… oh yes… I was a big ol dork!

But I’ve moved on… I’m past that… because Wednesday (that’s today for those of you who read promptly) I’ll at the very least be where the cool kids are. It’s a big event day here in Portland and I’ll be on top of things.

First by heading over to cube space for the Silicon Florist Lunch 2.0 and Birthday Extravaganza where Rick Turoczy is going to be hosting a ton of people for the ever popular lunch sensation. What will we do? What will we talk about? Who will be there? Who knows, but it’s sure to be a lovely time.

Then after a little time to rest and regroup I’ll head over to Urban Grind NE for Back Fence PDX, an amazing evening of story telling hosted by Melissa Lion & Frayn Masters (The Back Fence Babes).

Then… well then the very best thing of all… then I will head to the most exclusive party in all of Portland, a sleepover at my house. I only invited one person, the coolest guy I know. Boy I’m sure hoping Dr. Normal can make it.

Have a great Wednesday everybody, I think I will!
