Well we're in the news again

This time it's about how "young creative hipsters" are "hanging on" in Portland despite the "shitty economy" and people putting "things in quotes."

Hey, I'm writing again

I've got this sci fi story percolating. It's a good thing. M has insisted that I focus on hard sci fi as much as possible (realistic technology based on real laws of physics as much as possible - so no warp drives, transporters, etc), which is actually, I think, going to make for a better story. I'm not at all sure whether this is going to be a short story or something more substantial - right now I'm just weaving threads, and I need to figure out where they go.

I've also got a new collection of poetry I'm playing around with.

Stay tuned - excerpts may appear here for the purpose of eliciting constructive criticism.

Oh, and we also got our Oregon Domestic Partnership certified yesterday - in addition to buying a Rabbit. And it was M's birthday. A momentous day.

so LJ does have a place, kind of between Twitter and Blogger, as a place to post random personal news.

Like buying a damned Volkswagen Rabbit.

Yeah, M got a car for his birthday. :-)

Well, the Saturn was dying, and we just got another nasty bit of news about needing another thousand or so of work on it, which basically totaled the thing. And this weekend really showed us, what with the weather and the hassle of trying to take public transit across the river, that one really does need a car for certain things.

So we bought a damned 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit. It's cute. Dark blue, two doors, peppy, fun, and only 20,000 or so miles on it. Good car. Excellent deal for it. Had to drive to Vancouver, and spent four hours at the dealership looking, test driving, and dealing with paperwork, but now we have a damned Volkswagen Rabbit, and the Saturn is the dealer's problem now.

It looks a lot like this, but electric blue:
