It's still all mainly about the Melo (look whose picture is prominently placed at the top of this page!), and what we're in to, up to, and trying to do, and all of the other good bits in between.

The Rusher Pirate Crew

Rusher Pirate Crew

Arrrgh . . . they came for a visit and go to the Portland 1st Annual Pirate Festival we did. Much fun to be had, but more vendors and staff did they need. Me thinks they were a bit overwhelmed by the amount of pirates and pirate wannebes in the Portland metro area.

All right, enough with the pirate speak. What is it about women who like the whole pirate thing/SCA thing that makes them think, hey, I think a corset that is about 10 sizes too small in black leather with nothing on underneath looks good. Honey, even Angelina Jolee wouldn't look good in that get up! There was a pirate mosh pit (pretty good bands!), and my personal highlight - the pirates from the Wife Swap Premiere. Oh yes, I even got to talk to Chumbucket and a good photo of Cap'n Slappy. That's sure to make me 6 degrees from Johnny Depp, since the pirate boat that was there (the Lynx) were the folks who trained the Pirates of the Caribbean crew. Woo Hoo as Josh would say!

Catch Up

Last week was the week of meeting new folks. All the folks at Jen & Cara's beautiful commitment ceremony (which was awesome and full of great hip-hop dancin', or booty-shaking as Cara puts it), meeting up with Michelle from (very fun, and I got a free tutorial on cables!! thanks Michelle), and my first book club with Chrissie (they were great - and none of my I'm-not-a-mom-yet fears were realized, and I actually read something that was not my usual Harry Potter or gawd-awful paranormal romance trash, which is okay to love (semi-secretly), but does not-let us say-demonstrate a high level of writing skills).

So, this Labor Day weekend is all about hanging out - we're headed up to the Mountain with Jeff and Melanie, then (can't wait!) game night/hanging out with Kev and Chrissie. Yes, Leina - don't worry, we're bringing Melo - she can't wait to see you and be tucked in with Green, or Pink.
