Grand Floral....why am I doing this again?
1:30 AM A few hours ago, I was sitting in the Baghdad Theater with a sold-out crowd of drunks waiting for Top Gun to start. Plans to camp out for the Grand Floral Parade had been essentially thwarted by the promise of happy hour at the Portland City Grill, a trip to the Waterfront for elephant ears and carnival rides and the opportunity to spend a few hours laughing at Tom Cruise. Then I borrowed an iPhone and read this. And then I saw this sitting in the comment area on the post below:
"If you do it - email me your location! We'll put you on TV to talk about what you call the "Stupidity" of this! I'm stuck covering this. I've got my blackberry readY Thanks -
Hmmm....I guess there's the possibility that two people could jump over from Bojack expecting parade coverage here and there's the slim possibility that I might wind up on the local news if I head downtown to sleep on a sidewalk. Ok, why not? This sort of thing doesn't come up too often and this whole thing is too ridiculous to pass up. I'm going to grab a tent. I'll write another post from "base camp" on SW Broadway...provided I can leech off someone's wi-fi. More to come...
