portland sees its most beautiful day today. the weather here is in the sixties; the softest breeze blows throughout the city; the leaves are changing to beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow; and the sun is shinning. however, everyone knows that the rains will soon be here, so soak it in while you can.
booth and i biked down to a restaurant on morrison called zell's to brunch with helen and garrett. i ate a wonderful smoked salmon scramble, while enviously dreaming of the fried green tomatoes garrett ordered last time we brunched at the screen door a few weeks ago. and after lounging a while, reading the times and drinking more coffee of course, booth and i walked a while to run an errand and admire the leaves.
though even at this hour, i wonder how much pain josh must be in still. a hangover seemed inevitable for him. let's put it this way, if drinking were a socialist activity, josh would have been sent to the gulag last night because he had more than his share. josh, booth, and i went to roturre last night to attend the glass candy cd release that seth informed us about. the show was interesting, what we saw of it. farah was horrible. glass candy was amazing. but of course, the star of the evening was josh, and i only hope after plenty of hydration and two asprins he feels better now.
and here, so that you can enjoy this portland day, let me share with you some of the fall leaves booth and i saw on our walk today:
