[pdx] Become A Fan of "Portland Was Built On An Ancient Unicorn Burial Ground" On Facebook …

2331. … and not just because the graphic I made in this chapter is the front page graphic for it.



Although, IMHO, it's a very good reason to.

Well, that's all very well and good, and your graphic is terrific, only I live in Eugene, and no one has ever told me what MY city was built on top of. Do you know?

Well, I don't know, hon, but the time's I've been to E-town I couldn't help coming away with the feeling that elves used to hand out around there somewhere.

Snowbrush said...

Elves? You get unicorns, and all we get are a bunch of lousy elves? No fair. I would at least like fairies, or lost Vikings or Martians with a failed carburetor.

P.S. "Hon"? Guys don't usually call me that, but I'm not complaining. I've surely been called a lot worse, often by women who do, at times, call me hon.

@Snowbrush:

In Re: Elves … well, it's just an impression I had. I like Eugene quite a bit but even though I'm an Oregon native I haven't spent nearly as much time in Eugene as I'd of liked. So it's more of an impression than anything else.

Organize an expedition! Why not? Disguise it as a brewpub crawl and none of "them" need be the wiser.

Frankly, I like the idea of a Martian with a busted carburetor.

In Re "Hon": I'm glad you weren't offended by that. I grew up around the sort of people who go out to diners all the time where the waitresses call you "hon", and I guess it's just a part of my warp and woof. I realize it might be seen as a little overly-friendly or even condescending, though, so I try to ride herd on it. But from me, it's just a term of endearment. B-)

I'm from Mississippi, but moved to Oregon in 1986--at age 37.

" I realize it might be seen as a little overly-friendly or even condescending..."

It was just unusual, that's all. If it's just what you naturally do, then feel free.

Consider it done. I was a fan of this before there was a Facebook for it.
