It reminds me of New Orleans,which is not particularly a compliment.
One has to work really hard to find a place in this country big enough to host a convention that is still a major bitch to get to from Washington DC.
Portland is apparently just such a place. I came through Phoenix, kids.
I got going late, and in a true injustice, had to fly here stone cold sober. (Fun fact about CC: She's slightly claustrophobic and rarely flies without some form of assistance, usually alcohol.)
Anyway, I haven't eaten since dinner yesterday and will likely go do something about that. Will show up at the convention later. If you want to hang out, text me or just leave a note up on the message board.
