With only two weeks left this quarter, things are getting hectic! In addition to my UO to do list, I’m getting ready to host first house guests since moving to Oregon. After they explore Oregon this weekend, I bet they won’t want to go back to Ohio.
Here’s our best of links for the week.

It was all I could do not to go pose next to it in my Oregon gear. But regardless, what do you think about him as a spokesperson?
