I mean, aside from using something different like Trillian, which gets broken every other day anyway...
i now have a baseball cap that, very discreetly on the back, says "cheekyassmonkey".
if you see me, try not to make an ass of yourself, k?
i was hoping it might get panned at the game last night, but no such luck. the rockets were a thing of beauty to watch, btw. i hope the blazers were taking notes.
One of my scorpions had babies this week and i'm going to need lil homes for them next month
something tells me the safeway deli department won't just give me 40 of them
suppose i could try costco... not something i've actually LOOKED for...
1. I am 19 with no solid work history or experience (I volunteered at a doggy daycare, goodwill, and had a summer internship - all in MA)
2. I do not have a license so it must be somewhat easy to get to via trimet. (I live in the Tanasbourne/Hillsboro area)
3. I am very shy around strangers.
But I am very good with computers, numbers, words, and kids.
It's so frustrating. I've been looking for a job since March of last year. I've applied to at least 50 places, gotten 2 interviews, and no job. I'm pretty much willing to do anything at this point. Is the economy really that bad or am I just a bad candidate?
We need someone for april 1st.
the room is big and only $300/mo.
deposit is $50 for the room and $50 per cat.
we already have 2 cats and don't really want any more.
Also no dogs allowed.
We need someone who is kid friendly,(we have 2 four-year olds,in the house.)
Also we would prefer a vegetarian or vegan.
You Must be Queer/trans friendly.
We are a very communal and creative household, and are seeking like-minded eco-friendly people.
please get back to me if you or someone you know is looking for a house in N.E.
What's a good credit card (VISA/MC Only) to have? I'm tired of my existing credit card (Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Visa) because they randomly decline my credit card from time to time, they don't offer an autopayment feature (you can still do it online but you have to remember to go online and make the payment), they charge an annual fee of $39, it now takes more money to get a rapid rewards credit, if you don't accumulate enough rapid rewards points in a year, they expire, their hold times for customer service are 30+ min when their software says 7 minutes to go.
I'm specifically looking for a new VISA/MC credit card with cash back or air mileage, friendly customer service, autopayment of bills, little to no annual fee, no expiration fee for your miles/points.
Thanks in advance.
2. My employer's subsidization of employee Tri-Met passes (which is good until August of this year)--especially in the face of fare hikes beginning tomorrow.
3. Walking through a valley of tall, grey, concrete buildings in the rainstorm on Monday, and being reminded of the ambience in Blade Runner.
4. Last Thursday happening this evening on NE Alberta.
5. Going to sleep at night with the sounds of the rain falling outside my window.
I am on a mission for a good optometrist, specifically one who prescribes contact lenses as opposed eyeglasses.
I am also on the hunt for a dentist - I haven't been in YEARS so, preferably, someone who isn't going to ream me a new one cause my teeth are so poor.
Both need to take SafeCo insurance (crappy, yes, but better than nothing).
Any leads would be GREATLY appreciated.

We need some volunteers tommorrow!!!!
Lessons run from 12:30pm to 7pm. You'd need to be here around 12pm.
Blue Heaven Academy is a riding academy that does hippotherapy (horse therapy) for disabled persons. They don't discriminate based on disability, so we have everything from head injuries, to palsy, to mild ADHD. The kids are a blast to work with. Eventually, they're going to start doing corporate-trainings, things like trust-building exercises, etc.
Blue Heaven is located near Estacada in Eagle Creek. It takes me about 45-55 minutes to drive out there from SE Portland, it might take you about an hour if you don't know where you're going the first time.
If you ever feel uncomfortable about a client's disability, that's not a problem, you can take a break or help out elsewhere in the barn. Most of the clients are pretty high in cognitive awareness, they're mostly learning to walk again after an injury or something like that. There's no clients I've had with major physical deformities or anthing like that (aside from some scoliosis). So, if you're not super used to working around people with disabilities, it's an easy transition.
You can volunteer as a one-time deal or you can do it regularly or irregularly, whenever is convenient for you. There is no minimum time commitment and it's a really relaxed atmosphere. The stable is willing to work with schools for work-study where the school pays you for time spent doing non-profit work. This is also a great opportunity if you're studying physical therapy, etc.
Volunteers do NOT have to have any horse experience, though it's VERY helpful. We can show you how to do everything. Volunteers help groom horses, tack them up (put on saddles, etc), and then side-walk with the clients (walk next to the horse/client during the lesson). Some clients can sit up on their own, others need a little help and the volunteers just make sure that if the client is going to lose balance the volunteers are there to help the client regain balance. It's mostly walking, occaisionally a little trotting. Our volunteers help make this program happen.
If we get to know you better (you come out and volunteer a few times), and if we have time, you're welcome to get on a horse and ride between lessons or learn how to train horses. You don't have to know how to ride. The horses are all absolute dolls - they have to be for the kind of program we run.
If you're interested, go through the webpage and fill out the form to contact Carrie Perry, the program director. I personally teach on Fridays and Saturdays but there are also volunteer opportunities on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Friday (tomorrow) I am short on volunteers and thus this last-minute plea.
So, if you can help us out tomorrow, CALL the number on the contact page above (don't do the online form, she may not check it in time) and ask to speak to Carrie (the director). She can either fax you or email you a map (she gives you a much easier route than the one suggested by MapQwest).
(mostly to make some prints of digital work)
He had a small clown move in with him last november and I was wondering how they were fairing,...
If you have any pictures of them in their current condition I would love to see them,
The clown belonged to my grandmother and I thought woudl be a good companion for the gnome.
Are they both still alive and well in their hollow?

If you missed the movie, don't worry, because it really sucked.
Long shot, but does anyone know the address for the Goodwill I'm talking about?
