hey sick boy,
we went to the Acropolis (GREAT strip club in
Portland) last Friday and jotted down "acts" of the strippers. we needed to
do "research" for a cacophony event:
this Valentines Day we (cacophony folks) are going there and playing
stripper bingo. Cupcake is making the bingo cards, she's putting acts
on the squares (some w/clipart) and when you spot that particular act you
mark it off your card, so you really have to pay attention. this is the 3rd
annual stripper/valentines event. the bingo is new. we all dress up and have
cheap steaks and watch the girlies (they have 50 beers on tap!!!)
in the past they have done readings from girls christian handbooks/guides
and other stuff inappropriate to the setting. this year Cupcake is pretty much
organizing it and it will obviously be more fun/interactive. we're putting
together "party favor" bags too; Cupcake made really nice drink coasters w/red
hearts on them, I'm getting a bunch of free condoms, glitter, Hershey kisses, and other stuff to fill the bags with.
Sounded like a must-do, and fortunately, the next day I found that there was a cheap Phoenix-Portland fare for that weekend. I'd been meaning to visit my Granny, who just turned 100. I asked Max whether I should join up; she e-mailed back almost instantly:

the alternative - is a royal ass-kickin from ME!
would you stay at your grandma's? if you need a place to crash I'll arrange
something for you, like at Cupcake's or Chuck's, and as far as
transportation is concerned - I'm all yours!

So, off to Portland I went . . .
