I keep complaining that September has come so quickly, but the truth of the matter is, if I lived my life like I lived this August, the years would simply FLY by.
I promised you much better news than the stories that I told in my last blog post, and I am here to deliver on that promise. A week after my first houseguest, Patricia, left, and I took my first ARE, I bought a new bike, courtesy of my Mother, for my birthday present. Have a look... this is Daisy, so named because she is flowery but also because she is the hotness, like Daisy Dukes. Also, Daisy will not be going anywhere without at least two locks at all times.
Later that same week, another houseguest arrived, and then the real fun started. Katie came into town to attend the Lady Gaga concert in Portland with me but we decided to have my housewarming party on the same weekend. I did not take too many pictures of the group of 10 girls that went to the Lady Gaga concert, but if I did I certainly wouldn't put them online. Instead I will simply post this one image from the concert and you will have to trust me when I say that Gaga is down there somewhere.
My housewarming party was a small, lively affair that involved homemade donuts, jello shots, and grilling at 11 pm. Good times. Katie and I rounded out the weekend with a pub crawl, hosted by my friends at PDX Pub Crawl. Again, you'll just have to believe me when I say it was fun, because I have no photos that will be going on the Internets from this one.
Originally that was going to be pretty much all I had to tell you, but August had to go out with a bang, just like it came in. I have one last houseguest to tell you about...
The entire month, a little adorable cat has started living underneath of the deck outside my front door. He cries and shows up when I come home at night and when I leave in the morning, and I'd pet him, and that would be the end of it. Until today, when it started raining, and I decided I couldn't take this situation anymore. So I took him to the vet, and as it turns out, he is NOT chipped, so he does not belong to anyone, but he IS neutered; he is also young and healthy. What I'm trying to say is that now I have a houseguest, who has four legs, and is adorable, until I can get him in at the Humane Society. I have no intentions of keeping him, however, I do have to name him... I can't have a houseguest without a name!
If you have any thoughts on names for this adorable boy, please let me know. It seems that The Universe has given him to me for now, but we'll see if this is where he is meant to stay...
