 So I just want to tell all y'all that I'm drunk in an internet cafe in Hong Kong in which everyone is speaking Hindi.  This makes me.......awesome.  Hot Tip #1: Fly Cathay Pacific whenever possible: Both my wife and I got a blow job in economy class.  Pretty much unbeatable.  Oh, and I just had a big ass beer and bowl of noodles in a back alley in Hong Kong. The only thing that could take me right now is fatherhood....signed the man.

above is the text of an email i just got from my bass player who's traveling in china for a month.  they left yesterday.  i think this may be the best email i've ever gotten.

That is a crazy hilarious email.

Though I do fear for his digestive system, in regard to eating food in a back alley?!? I hope he didn't buy it in the back alley. Heee.

i was just thinking about you today! isn't that funny? i haven't been on my flist much to check in with peeps. how are you????

Not bad. It's kind of overcast and humid and dreary here today, so that's bringin' me down a bit, and I STILL haven't gotten any new calls for job interviews which is depressing and defeating, but other than that... pretty good. I took a two-week self-defense course the last two Tuesdays (it was kind of a starter course, to give us some basics and see if we wanted to join for a full class), and that was really fun and interesting and felt powerful. And I've been feeling more writery creative lately, which is a good sign.

How are you? :D

i'm all right. it's been quite a ride: losing my job and having this body transform (down 60 pounds in 3 months is a lot!) and we also have had some problems with the builder not paying the roofer who then put a lien on the condos. however that at least seems to be resolving! so....i'm hanging in! i am psyched to be on summer break and getting extra time in with the nephews. oh! i have to post the latest luca shots. jenn cut his hair and all of a sudden he's a boy! and i have this tremendous trip to france planned for a bit later which is wonderful and couldn't have happened if i weren't not going back to my old school....so silver linings abound.

i'm still completely perplexed why you don't have work. i know the economy is awful and all i can say is it's a damn shame. this too shall pass though along with the dreary weather and sunny skies will come back to you, my friend!

stay strong sister!
lots of love

Cathay Pacific is pretty awesome! We tried to fly them into Vietnam but it was the wrong time of day. :-(

wasn't that an awesome email? britton cracks my shit up!

when are we getting coffee? i just got 2 coupons from the chinook book: one for buy one get one at ladybug and the same for anna bananas.....
Jun. 18th, 2009 12:10 am (UTC)
That was from Britton?! OMG. What a dork! I knew I liked that man for some reason other than his timely SPED skills.
Is it sad that I've have never heard of either of those coffee places?! You pick. I'm game Sunday of this week or most days next week.
Jun. 18th, 2009 12:12 am (UTC)
ooh sunday would work for me! are you cool with coming up to st johns--that's where both of those cafes are. tell me what time is good for you.

also yes britton is one of the coolest dorkiest guys EVER. too bad his wife is such a cold fish......
Jun. 18th, 2009 12:17 am (UTC)
St John's is ok....although I'm not all together sure where it is. I'll google it. What about Sunday, kindda earlish, like 10:30a? Do either of these places serve food? Breakfast is my favorite dine-out meal!
Jun. 18th, 2009 12:24 am (UTC)
well if you want to do breakfast then we should hit someplace else which is totally fine by me. how about the tin shed on alberta? they have some of the very best breakfast in portland, imho. 1438 ne alberta. how does that sound?
Jun. 18th, 2009 12:29 am (UTC)
Sure. Since it's Sunday should we do earlier than 10:30?
Jun. 18th, 2009 01:22 am (UTC)
What if we had an "early" lunch at 11a and went to Por Que No? They are the BEST. This baby loves Thai and Mexican food. :-)
Jun. 18th, 2009 05:37 am (UTC)
ah i see you double-posting! nearly threw me off!

are you talking por que no on mississippi? or hawthorne? sounds delish to me! 11 works and they do brunch on the weekends.
Jun. 18th, 2009 05:45 am (UTC)
I don't want to bully you! It went from coffee to breakfast to Mexican food! hahahaha Your call on where and what. I'm easy. :-)
Jun. 18th, 2009 06:59 am (UTC)
hahahaha! it did do a kind of 360. no worries. if i had my druthers i'd still meet you at tin shed (i'm craving their potato cakes).....we can go earlier or even later for crowd control. what thinkest thou?
Jun. 18th, 2009 02:36 pm (UTC)
oooo, the Fetch looks good at the Tin Shed (Fetch- Potato cakes topped with a bacon & egg scramble, covered with Tillamook cheddar, diced tomato & green onion). Let's do that. You can eat there, right? I don't want to screw up your tummy. I'd hate for you to get sick...you'd never want to hang out with me again!
What if we did 8:30 at the Tin Shed?
Jun. 18th, 2009 04:28 pm (UTC)
the fetch is terrific! i've eaten that many a time. so it's a date! yes i'll be able to eat there no problem. i'll see you at 8:30 on sunday at tin shed! woohoo!
Jun. 18th, 2009 04:50 pm (UTC)
I'll wear my best Sunday attire (jammies and a sweatshirt!) haha
Jun. 18th, 2009 05:46 pm (UTC)
if you're lucky, i'll wash my face and brush my teeth! see you sunday....also my phone jic 503 528 8038.
Jul. 9th, 2009 10:00 am (UTC)
i was thinking we should make a plan to get together......what do you think?
Jul. 9th, 2009 04:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah totally! I was just thinking that the other day. I'm kindda broke but something low key would be good. Whatcha in the mood for?
Jul. 9th, 2009 04:40 pm (UTC)
