Cheers: to Jeff M. of CitySpeek.com for giving me the VIP pass to the Widmer Brothers 25th Anniversary party.
Cheers: to Jeff E. for being my date to the Widmer party, and being a
good sport when it turned out to be like a giant frat party.
Cheers: to Jeff E. for taking me to a Blazers game!
Cheers: to Chris “Birdman” Anderson of the Denver Nuggets, who stopped to talk to me in downtown Portland.
Cheers: to Karen M. for staying late and helping me clean up after the Wine and Chocolate party.
Jeers: to the people who said they were coming to the Wine and Chocolate party but then didn’t show up.
Cheers: to Andrew B. for taking me to Coffee Time for hot chocolate
before the Comedy Sportz workshop last week. I will forever refer to that place
as Crazy Time, because of the strange people hanging out there.
Jeers: to the Swine Flu. Please don’t come to Oregon!
Jeers: to the cancer that recently took the life of KINK’s Les Sarnoff.
Cheers: to Michael for taking me to the KINK benefit concert at the
Aladdin last week. Paulo Nutini, Serena Ryder, and one other band.
Great evening of music.
Jeers: to the guy two rows in front of me at the Paulo Nutini concert
who was holding up his BlackBerry and checking email at eye level.
Might as well have had a flashlight shining in my eyes. The guy in
front of me finally said something.
