the prince of portland

At Powell’s book store in Portland, Oregon. 10/30/17. WHAT A DESCRIPTION, STAFF, REALLY SELLING THE BOOK THERE WOW (<– sarcasm).


Highlights from last night:

-running into a handful of Pens fans and getting “Go Pens!” shouted at me instead of “Pens suck!” Although I have the perfect answer if it ever happens again. “Pens suck!” “Statistically untrue!”

-Portland beating Prince Albert (😏) 6-1, yeah buddy!

-calling the opposing team the Dick Jewelry Raiders (innocent ones, Google ye not) in the GC

-two goals from my son, Cody Glass. I’m very proud.

-at one point there were FOUR dudes from the opposing team in the penalty box and it was hilarious and then we scored and it was even more hilarious


-Winterhawks uniforms, remain, as always, The Worst

Ruby Lucas is by definition a meddler.

She’s the reason Emma works at Granny’s, she’s the reason Killian sits in the corner booth alone every morning at 7:00, and she’s the reason Emma holds an unending grudge regarding the morning of February thirteenth.

But that’s not how the story starts.

It starts with Emma Nolan driving through Storybrooke, Maine and bumping into Killian Jones on the sidewalk outside of Granny’s Diner not fifteen minutes into her forced stop in the tiny town.

Actually, the story starts a long time before that, during a time where Emma was dating a Class A asshole named Neal, but that’s less important.

Killian’s carrying a paper cup filled with steaming hot coffee when she bumps into him and the only reason she knows is because it splashes straight out of the cup and onto her favorite sweater.

“Oh, bloody hell,” he immediately blurts out. “I am so, so sorry, love.”

Story Time

So the guy who came to do window estimates for my parents today was super talkative. My parents somehow ended up mentioning that I was a big soccer fan.

Turns out this guy is Chad Prince. He played on a few men’s youth national teams, the Chicago Fire, and coached with Paul Riley for the Thorns! He said that Tobin Heath was absolutely as chill as she seems, and that Alex Morgan wasn’t really great to work with. Was super pumped when I said my favorite player was Krieger (he’s a defender) and seemed really excited that JJ and Zach Ertz are getting married lol. Kind of a random encounter, but cool none the less.
