Hi. My name’s morgan. You may have figured that out, what with the MORGANpdx in the URL that you most likely had to type in. First of all, I am in no way related to Morgan Freeman, Morgan Fairchild or Morgan LeFay. You’d be amazed how often I get comments like that:
‘Morgan, huh? Is your last name Fairchild/Freeman/Lefay? har har har har….’
Yeah, um, no. Har har har har.
Now that that’s cleared up: welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED home of my blog! It’s mostly about Portland, because I love it, and all the things I and my fellow Portlanders like to do. Stuff like hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, bike commuting, and just generally being full of laid back, fun loving, cool, progressive people.
I also love my dog, so you most likely will see some stuff about her. Here’s a picture:
Adorable huh? Ok. Where was I…Oh yeah. Another thing I might blog about is my house. I have a house. Yeah my very own!! Can you believe it? I have a big backyard project that consumes much of my time and all of my money. I’m all naturescaping and bioswaling and stuff, and someday…SOMEDAY IT WILL BE MAGNIFICENT! So says me.
I also love love love music. It’s sort of a remote control for…well, for me. For instance, say, I’m having a bad day. Slap in some Bee Gees:Night Fever, or Peter Gabriel:Solsbury Hill, and I start smiling. I can’t freakin help myself. Can’t sleep? In goes Mazzy Star, or certain Portishead/Cocteau Twins/This Mortal Coil, and I’m off to la la land. Low energy? How about some selections from my ever-growing electronica collection? When I can’t seem to maneuver my brain in the direction I want to go, I just give it a little shove with the right music.
Well that’s pretty much it. I’ll probably occasionally blog about stuff I do, or see, or think, but since I live in Portland I figure that all falls under the Portland heading, right?
I do have occasional moments of funny. Or funnaaaay. Occasionally I rant about stuff. And every once in a while, I’m freakin brilliant, but don’t hold your breath. It’ll happen, but you might have to wait a while.
