September 16, 2008what? i haven't written a testimonial for this one???? i swore i did... but maybe i thought i had because of all the talking up i did when he was first coming to portland. does that count? well, better to have something in writing, er, text.
i adore dan. it's this old friendly adoration that touches this really squishy place in my heart that is usually covered up under many other layers of stuff. not many people know that spot, but considering the length of time we've known each other and the goofy madness that we have in our history.... well, pretty much he practically owns that joint. he's not only uber artistically talented, but his fantastic combination of intelligence and wit is such that he'll get you when you least expect it- which makes it all the better. he talks very quietly, so it's important to listen well, because you might miss something that would have had you in glorious stitches or would have taught you to look at the world in a better way.
i love and respect you heaps, dan. you know this, but i won't get tired of sayin' it. and even though you waited to move to portland until i was leaving, and though we ALWAYS seem to miss each other at the burn, no matter how much time passes between our hangout sessions, i will always love you.
