Beautiful, misty night

It's a wonderfully misty night in Southeast, and I was wondering if anyone wanted to go for a short stroll with me.

Around 39th and Powell, and I'd be willing to walk a little bit in some direction. I just want to walk for a bit, and was thinking that it would be nice to share that walk.

[EDIT]:
I need to go to bed now, but it was a nice idea.


Maybe I'll work on spontaneity some other time, when more people are awake.

Anyone have any experience with salvia divinorum? I've been thinking of purchasing some leaves and/or 5x extract amd wondering if anyone's had experience with it and has any advice to offer in regards to first-time use. Also wondering if anyone was interested in going in together on a larger quantity and maybe being each others sitters. Lemme know!

Bio on Attrition:
ATTRITION are pioneers in a darker electronica...Carving out a unique slice
of the creative underground for over two decades, fueled by a succession of
critically acclaimed albums...selling over 50,000 to date...the band has
toured all of Europe and North America, appeared at major festivals and had
their music included on a number of film soundtracks....
Formed in 1980 by Martin Bowes and Julia Waller in Coventry, England,
influenced by a mix of punk ideology and experimental art aesthetics, they
emerged as part of the early '80's UK Industrial scene alongside
contemporaries Test Department, Coil, Legendary Pink dots, In The Nursery,
Portion Control et al.
Their music is an undefinable marriage of dark and light...of futures and
pasts...probing unexplored sonic landscapes with an eclectic mix of
experimental and traditional sound, electronics and acoustics, male and
female....

okay, so i had my phone stolen last night.

i posted here and on craigslist immediately, and put up a sign at the coffee shop where i left it, but didn't really hold much hope in any of those avenues. once my lady got home with her phone, i started calling it repeatedly until finally someone answered.

dude: well, little lady, posession is nine tenths of the law, and i have your phone right now. the ball's in your court.
me: what the hell do you want?
dude: well, i'm just a guy in a financial bind....
me: WHAT DO YOU WANT?
dude: 50 bucks
me: 30
dude: 35
me: deal. meet me at the cafe where you found it.


my roommate rebecca, who heard this exchange, says that no fucking way are we giving him any money. i figure that although i don't want to give anything to a theif and petty extortionist, i really need my phone and it's cheaper than replacing it, as it's not insured. but if we're not going to give him the money, we need to call the police BEFORE we get to the cafe, which is of course what we should have done.

instead, he shows up and gives me his sob story about how he's unemployed and supporting two women and a baby at home. (?) i tell him i don't feel very inspired to hand him a wad of bills, and he says, "okay, let's go right now," posturing like he's going to fight me, my two roommates, my greyhound, and the waiter who's watching this all go down. i give him a "you can't be for real" look, and he asks if we're seriously not going to give him the money. i'm ready to tell him he can have the money and that he's a shitty shitty person, but rebecca is pissed by this point, and says, "that's right, we're seriously not giving you anything". at which point he slams the phone into the ground and walks away.

surprisingly enough, my phone still works (thank you samsung) although the screen is 100% fucked.

so there's my advice for the day: either pay the asshole off, or get him busted, but don't try anything inbetween.

so that last post reminded me of something.

I STILL have this womans wallet. I posted about it here: http://www.livejournal.com/community/damnportlanders/4049081.html?s2id=4877311

I have had it for a month now. I would like to make sure that it will get back to the person who owns it, so they can be assured no one used their credit cards and such (and there is $20 in it!).

The police station won't do anything to try to get it back to her; they will just keep it, and unless she calls trying to claim it, it will sit there forever.

I have called every card in there, and left our phone number for her. A lot of the cards (health card, insurance card) have said that they do not have a current phone number for her, and there is nothing they can do. Some of teh credit cards say that it is not their policy to give out phone numbers, and won't even give her mine. I have also searched the yellow pages online and google for every version of her name on these cards.

I am stuck! What do I do now?

Attention Crafty Folk, Collagers, People who Like Low-Key Parties

In the interest of reclaiming Valentine's Day for everyone, I'm hosting a Valentine-making Party at my house in SE on Sunday, February 6th from 1 p.m.-whenever. I'll be providing 2 heaping bins of collage clippings, lots of glue and scissors, glitter, pink envelopes, pens, markers, etc. You supply your imagination and maybe a pair of your own scissors (they always run short). I may also be serving cookies and punch if I get motivated, and there might be a showing of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" at 6 or 7, depending on interest.

Anyway, I've had this party before and it was lots of fun. Just a great chance to collage in a group, and reclaim Valentine's Day as a holiday that's about love for all people in your life - your mom, your best friend, your roommate, your dog...

If you think you'd be interested in coming, please e-mail me at jennifer@inalienable.net for directions/details. I'm in SE near the Foster/Holgate intersection, right off the #14 and #17 buslines, but don't feel like giving out the address on DP.

Everyone is welcome; hope to see some of you fun livejournalers there!

Love,
Jennifer

florists

I'm in Tigard. My mother is in Salem. I want to send her flowers. But instead of just ordering online, and hoping they look right, I'd like to actually go into a florist, pick an arrangement and a balloon, and send them to her. I want it to be a surprise (a late birthday present).

Are there florists in the Tigard/Beaverton area that do this? The one place I found only delievers in the Portland area.

Ordering online isn't an option. And I'm willing to go into Portland. Just as long as they'll deliever to Salem.

Any suggestions, dear Portlanders?

Help!

I work at an outbound call center. The staff there is Great! But, the job is horrible. I get yelled at, hung up on, cussed at, lectured, and transfered to automated "you suck" messages. That, and waking up at 4:30am so I can be at work by 6am isn't exactly the highlight of my morning.

I need a new job! Bad!

Does Anyone know of any places that are hiring for $9.50+ ?

I'm searching craigslist and ww and the paper for options.

Please! I'm desperate!

Powels Question

I have two sets of children's books, they are in somewhat of a series (but wouldn't have to stay that way). Do ya'll think they'd be of interest to the buyers at Powels? There are probably 25 in one set (on teaching children manners in all sorts of situations) and 20 in another set (Disney books teaching little lessons) and they're just taking up room. I'd like to at least get a little money for them instead of just giving them away.

Or, are any of you parents interested in them?

This belongs to a friend of mine and I have personally staid there. It was amazing. My personal favorite of the bedrooms is the one with the glass ceiling but the other bedroom has a waterbed. Also the hot tub is fully enclosed and there is nothing better than sipping drinks while in the hot tub :) The house is perfect for a nice romantic getaway or just for a small group of friends to hangout and have some fun. Its also only about 5min from the casino!!!!
