My wife got me Takenoko for Festivus. Of course we had to play a game right away. Takenoko is light-hearted strategy game where up to 4 players compete to finish objectives around building the shared garden, growing bamboo and feeding the hungry panda. My wife really enjoyed it and whooped my butt too! Mild learning curve and fun for all ages and interests! . . #GameNight #BoardGames #Takenoko #Panda #Garden #Bamboo

Another successful Festivus in the books! Despite the passing years, I’m still apparently a thirteen year old boy (and I wouldn’t have it any other way). Happy Holidays! . . #HappyHolidays #Festivus #Lego #Spiderman #SmashBrosUltimate #Takenoko #PlaystationClassic #StarWars #LegoStarWars #ImThirteen #ThatsTheBestWayToBe

Take a deep breath and smile. The holidays are here! Not sure if I’m actually happy or just stressed to the point of looniness. Either way, this works! . . #Smiling #HappyHolidays #IWearHatsOften #IUseLotsOfFilters #DontJudgeMe #OrDo #ItsInstagram #IDontCare

Be the light in the dark. When love is torn and our contrasts stark, be the light in the dark. When greed weaponizes fear and taints our collective heart, be the light in the dark. What we need most is each other to save humanity’s spark. Don’t give up now. Be the light in the dark. Even the faintest glimmer among fluttering ashes will mark Our shimmering reunion to rise and banish the dark. . . #GuidingLight #Poetry #TheResistance #WeCanDoIt #OurDarkestHour #DontGiveUp


Be the light in the dark.
When love is torn
and our contrasts stark,
be the light in the dark.
When greed weaponizes fear
and taints our collective heart,
be the light in the dark.
What we need most is each other
to save humanity’s spark.
Don’t give up now.
Be the light in the dark.
Even the faintest glimmer
among fluttering ashes will mark
Our shimmering reunion
to rise and banish the dark.

Taking in the sights along Mississippi Ave as I walked back to the Skidmore Max station last night. This building is home to the Paxton Gate, an eclectic shop where you can buy a giant taxidermied hippopotamus head. I’ll just pass on by… . . #MississippiPDX #NorthPortland #PaxtonGate #NightWalking #WalkingOffTheBooze #DoIUseTooManyFilters? #YeahProbably #ImOKWithItThough #TriMet #Skidmore

Had a blast at the DT Holiday Party last night at Quaintrelle! I had a few too many of their tasty Big Thief buttered bourbon drinks but escaped without too much hangover wreckage. Shout out to @gstatty for putting the whole thing together! Try the beef! . . #Quaintrelle #QuaintrellePDX #DigitalTrends #HolidayParty #SillyFaces #Bourbon #IReallyLikeBourbon #MississippiPDX
