Portlandia

Yesterday, I was passing through the city so I decided to go park and hit the Goodwill. I moved to the Portland, Oregon area 7 years ago where shopping at the Goodwill isn’t weird at all. They take amazing pride in some of the Goodwill building structures and the displays within the stores. It didn’t even take terrible economic conditions for me to realize it’s a cool place where you sometimes find the best treasures. In fact, I even shopped once at the same time as a guy driving a Ferrari. 2nd hand in PDX has probably always been considered cool. So, yesterday at the Goodwill on 10th the workers were talking about Bill Nye the Science Guy and Patrick Stewart being in town filming a movie. They were pretty excited about that. I was entertained by their enthusiasm. Also noteworthy was that there is now a security guard at my favorite Goodwill. Afterwards, the weather was nice so I opted to stroll around the city.
