Hooray, Christmas time is here!!! Portland kicked off the season by throwing a moist parade yesterday. (LOL, I love the word moist.) This parade had everything. Down syndrome elves, ginger horn blowers, lesbian peppermints, homeless children dressed as bears handing out drugs, a drunk Santa Claus, oh and look is that Fiona Apple twirling a […]

So there was this random guy totally staring me down for awhile, but I was busy helping someone else. He walked around pretending to look at the various items we had for sale, but his eyes kept raping up on me.

This year, Portland is expecting 10-15,000 naked bikers, and I’m seriously thinking that I might […]
Leave it to me to yell out, “Oh my God, I love dicks!” when someone asked me if I’ve ever been to Dick’s Kitchen. I realized the moment that I yelled it out that it had a double meaning, and oh my God I felt super awkward. Everyone went silent and my face immediately turned red. […]
I had no idea how bike-friendly Portland was until we moved here. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, I see hundreds of bikers whizzing about every single day.
