Corvallis, OR: I get really drunk there, but never have a hangover.

Harford, CT: Nice town.

Worcester, MA: Great little burg. I'd love to live there! (If I couldn't afford Cambridge, and had to live in Boston, that is.)

Burlington, VT: Beautiful place.

New Haven, CT: Also very picturesque.

Portland, OR: We should plan a train trip down there some weekend.

Portland is nice placed, and I'm happy to see Boston.

Nevada is out. Period. And, for that matter, so are Baltimore and D.C.

But the presence of Honolulu on this list pleases me no end, for reasons related to my Super-Secret Crush.

Funny how you're the only one of the three of us with WA, and specifically Seattle, results, as the three of us live here now.

(and clearly I'll be blessed with Joanne's company forever if I stick to my list!)

Which is of course as it should be.

I've wanted to go to Portland for awhile and it was hypothetically something I was going to do this summer, although now it is looking more like a fall trip.
