* Shopping, shopping, shopping: I went on kind of a Great Circle Route in Portland, hitting two supermarkets and one comic book store; and
* Catch-up office work: I spent a couple of hours at my office on Pill Hill. That was between Shopping Stop #1 (the 39th & Powell Safeway, to use a particular coupon) and Shopping Stop #2 (Fred Meyer at Burlingame, south of Pill Hill). I burned through many, many e-mails that needed work and responses; and then
* Lunner! Could that be what you call a meal between lunch and dinner? I didn't leave work until after 3 o'clock; since I drove, I had more flexibility in where I could go shopping, and I decided it made the most sense to go to the Burlingame Freddy's. A couple of blocks away from it is a Baja Fresh restaurant, which I walked over to from the Freddy's parking lot. I had a nicely satisfying fish taco and a tortilla soup with chicken. I actually said "that hit the spot" to the counter person who'd taken my order. I then walked back, remembering that this is one of the neighborhoods where Chuck Palahniuk lived before he got famous. I also walked so I'd get a leeettle more exercise, which is always needed.
By the way, I went to the Milwaukie Things From Another World on the spur of the moment, because I was heading home via the Sellwood Bridge and realized it wouldn't be much of a detour. At that comic book store I got Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor Vol. 2, the final edition of the comic (about 10 years late, but that can be Harlan for you) and -- finally! -- the last two issues I needed so that I could have Caitlin R. Kiernan's complete run on The Dreaming.
