Hello, Portland!

First of all, thank you all SO MUCH for all the wonderful birthday messages! I've been in the middle of moving from LA to Portland for the last few days, so I had no idea until this morning. :) It's going to take me a little while to get all set up and going again out here, but you'll see new stuff from me as soon as I've finished slaying the cardboard box dragon that has been growing in my hallway.

Portland is lovely, and I have the world's coolest apartment. It's a hundred years old, still has the original telephone in it, and I keep finding other little surprises. Surprises like hidden doors and wall safes and  compartments in the stairs and closets. I found what may very well be the portal to my Other Mother in the kitchen, but I can't get that door open which is probably for the best. ;-)

Anyway, more stuff from me soon. Just wanted to pop back in and say thank you to all you lovely folks!
