I know a ridiculous number of facts about Oregon. I blame it on 4th grade when we studied all things Oregon. Oregon happens to share a birthday with Arizona, but Oregon is older. Also, Oregon's birthday happens to fall on the lamest holiday of the whole year, so instead of celebrating that stupid heart filled bonanza I celebrate Oregon's birthday. How do I celebrate? By eating something with filberts/hazelnuts/the state nut of Oregon. I think you should too.
In other non-related news, the amaryllis in my bathroom is blooming and it is GORGEOUS
