Hi there! I've been an absentee blogger lately -- got *some* manuscript sent off to my editor on Monday morning and immediately went into a shopping frenzy! I love shopping in Portland. There are so many great "destination streets" -- Hawthorne, NW 23rd, Alberta, and many many more, where there are independently owned shops everywhere offering totally unique stuff. We had to go to the mall for something and I thought I might fall into a narcoleptic stupor, it was so dull. Love the funky little shops!
Jim and I bought ourselves this Christmas present at an art gallery on Alberta. Isn't she cool? Might not be your taste, but we like slightly weird and creepy things! We were at Flutter again yesterday and I wanted to buy some mismatched animal horns, but I did not.
We're about to dash over to Alexandra's for an early Christmas involving opening gifts, eating gigantic pancakes at Cameo Cafe (seriously, they're about the size of a large pizza), and then we'll take her to the airport and probably go see I Am Legend with my family, because seriously, the holidays are not complete without monster movies! It was vampires for Thanksgiving, and it'll be zombie-vampires (not really sure what they are, actually) for Christmas!
Hope everyone is having a terrific holiday!
