I know I'm a nerd. You don't need to remind me. But I can't help but think that google's new map tool (linked above) is so awesome. You can type in any address or business name or location and it will map it for you and then . . . you can click on the link to get a satelite picture! It is so cool! I've spent half an hour just looking at places from space. You have to check it out - find your house, find your work, find your mom's house.
So I said all that to say - I really miss Portland. We (my wife and I) just looked at Portland from space - we looked at our old appartment, our alma matter, our honeymoon hotel, etc. Portland is a sweet city (hippies and all - Andrea just said, "Crazy hippies are a whole lot better than crazy rednecks."), and we miss it a whole freaking lot. So if you are in or arround P-town enjoy yourselves because it could be worse . . . much worse.
