Happy 149th birthday, Oregon!

Go celebrate, Beaver State – take a day off!

Since Oregon was admitted to the Union on February 14, 1859, next year is gonna be huge. The big 1-5-0. I should probably send Oregon a birthday card, maybe with a $20 gift card to Applebee’s or something.

Rare Internet-access-at-work Update: I just realized that it is also Arizona's birthday (admitted 1912). You and Oregon can party together amongst the cacti.

As a native-born Oregonian (Silverton) I heartily and gratefully accept your gracious birthday wish.

If I may be so bold as to make a gift suggestion, Oregon doesn't much care for Applebees. You know how outdoorsy we all are; might I instead suggest a (formerly GI) Joe's Gift Certificate, or, if you wanted to be local and funky about it, a gife certificate at Deek & Bryan's Next Adventure.

Oregon would also adore getting a gift card to any decent coffee place, just not Starbucks. Stumptown Coffee Roasters perhaps.

I was also thinking Oregon wouldn't care much for Applebee's. Maybe a gift card to a Made in Oregon store. Or, to Heaven on Earth, ooh, yeah, Oregon would like that, I bet!
