There are many reasons why I'm excited to move to Portland, not the least of which is not having to hear, "Oh, that's so Boulder!" or the even more cringe-worthy: "Well, you have to think that - you are from Boulder after all!"
I realize that this may be quickly replaced with "Oh, that's so Portland!" but at least it will be something new. And besides, maybe some of these will actually be true. Half the time with the Boulder remarks I'm wondering if the quipper has ever even been to Boulder. It's not all flowers-in-your-hair, peace-man, people. Sometimes you even get hit in the head with rocks for no reason.
