The zoo here in Portland decks itself out
in ninety trillion lights for the holidays and you guys, it is SO GREAT.
The DeFractions made their annual pilgrimage a group event this year and brought me, Snake, Inturner and a couple of friends along. We got Too Cold. We drank hot cocoa. HL and TL were SO HYPE ABOUT IT, which was of course some industrial-grade cute. We saw lights turned into tigers and hippopotami and frilled lizards. There was a possum, you guys, an actual virginia trashcat made of lights.
Aaaand nothing else of note has happened in
or to PDX over the last, say, 24 hours or anything. No big deal.
(For you non-link-clickers, because I cannot stand the possibility that some of you might not see this gloat: THE TIMBERS WON THE MLS CUP, CONFETTI EMOJI, SOCCER BALL EMOJI.)
Oh! We've had our own rivalry going on between the two Milkfed offices for a while. It started when Kelly Sue suggested she and I were the Fun Office and Matt and Snake were the Cool Office. This was not enough for Matt, who it turns out is insatiable when it comes to positive office descriptors and wanted ALL OF THEM FOR HIMSELF. Do you know what he did, Milkfed newsletter friends?? He STOLE the flags that said "FUN" off of our door, definitely in the hopes that THAT would make theirs the Cool Fun Office.
For a while our door just said "OFFICE." Which was also kind of great. But then Kel found this poster
and we BOUGHT THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
The Less Cool And More Boring Office, STEERING RIGHT INTO THAT CURVE.
