oregon so far: lots of hills

today we drove straight up from san francisco to the portland area. the drive was fine, and oregon is very pretty, etc. that is, pretty until we showed up.

before you hit portland on i-5, you pass by the sleepy town of eugene, home of the university of oregon. draped in lightning yellow and thunder green (whatever shade "thunder" is), the university of oregon has that nasty knack for being a huge pain in michigan football's ass (think umich v. oregon circa 2003). anyway, zach and i are still bitter so we gave some structure on campus the business. observe:

by desecrating part of their land, we hope to curry favor from the gods in this year's sept. 8 matchup. good times.

other than that, little to report. zach and i just caught up on things, listened to our respective "road trip" and "driving" playlists, and ate. we ate delicious authentic northern californian burritos; cooked, but cooled, frozen pizza; and burger king's spicy tendercrisp chicken sandwich, which was unfortunately neither spicy nor crisp, but i do think it was chicken.

tomorrow (today), we explore more of oregon, and also head to boise, idaho. maybe we'll visit boise state, but we don't really hold any grudges with them. and seriously, why would i care about BS if it somehow doesn't relate back to umich.

I'm sure by now you've encountered the no-pumping-your-own-gas-in-Oregon thing. As far as silly and unnecessary laws go, that's gotta be up there.

the real question is: was it tender?
