Looks pretty accurate too. $2.18 was what I paid at Flying J yesterday.
Yesterday, I posted about the parking situation ( http://www.livejournal.com/community/damnportlanders/4977005.html?nc=10&style=mine) and from there it has only gotten worse.
8:30am this morning, I walk outside and get into my car to leave for school. The fuckbag of a human that happens to live next to me walks into his yard, stares at me ... gets in his car and leaves at the same time I do. I think really nothing of it.
I have two dogs. One pitbull and one old english bulldog. Both the most loving, well mannered, chill dogs. Well, whenever somebody pulls up my bulldog will jump up in the window and watch. So, I noticed something was wrong soon as I got home from school at Noon. She wasn't in the window, which straight away set something off inside of me. I walked in my house, called both dogs names and nothing. Scared shitless at this point because they both respond to their names, and with a quickness. I ran all over my house, screaming their names, ran out back, checked both of the gates. Both of which were closed. No holes dug under them, no nothing. Thing is, I left our back door open much like I always do ... just so they can go in and out. (Bulldog is a puppy and we're still house training.) So. As I'm running around outside screaming their names I pick the phone up to call ... somebody, anybody really. Message states that it's 10:20 and the dogs are out, and are chillin' in the backyard of the people that live across from us. They said, the dogs were welcome to stay there until somebody got home and they've be watching for us.
I hear a scratch at the front door, both dogs. Thank God. Now ... the problem is. HOW THE HELL DID THEY GET OUT?! I seriously SERIOUSLY believe it was the douche. The doors were all closed and I'm sure of it. They can't jump 7 foot tall fences, and even if they could ... they wouldn't. So ... what the fuck.
More of a rant than anything, but I'm seriously about to go postal. This guy has some serious karma coming.
Oh look! Animal control is at my door.
I'm sure you've all seen this but it's still funny.

I saw Cowboy Bebop at Cinema 21, thus the generic ticket (that I apparantly obeyed).
Do you save your stubs?
PSU's annual art festival is here! From the 23rd to 27th there will be awesome art happenings around PSU, including an art auction!
Its a silent auction on Thursday, May 26 from 5:30-8pm in PSU's Smith Center room 236 (that’s at 1825 SW Broadway in downtown)

Come and check it out, even if you dont plan on buying things. there are a lot of things in there that have really reasonable starting bids.
Questions? send me an e mail and I'll try and anwser it.
So should i pay $36 (for a year membership) to this sight because someone is looking for me? I mean there are some people i would LOVE to hear from and stuff, should i do it? Do you think it is a scam? Do you think i will pay to find out that no one is really looking for me?
please tell me what you think!! :)
Just curious - haven't talked to you in, like, 5 years. Whatcha up to?
I am waiting with a hungry anticipation.
it shows that the city gave me back $16. they gave my 2 parking tickets within an hour for the same thing. from the same cop. i was so pissed! when i asked about it at the cashier's, they told me that it was really hard to contest those, so i didn't.
but they gave me my monies back anyway! yay!
Warm thanks to the (probably tweakered out) male who broke my passenger car window in the church/school parking lot.
I hope you enjoy the bandaids and toothpaste that were in the tiny green fabric bag on the passenger side floor. Please feel free to use the razor on your wrists. I'm curious why you didn't take the dollar in quarters in the cup holder.
We did get your license plate number by the way.
Have a great day!
Neither one of us drives, so we'll need a bus or train to get there.
We'd also like a B&B to stay in for Friday night (or Sat morning) to Monday.
Any ideas? Suggestions?
I'm hoping Greyhound still goes to the coast, although I vaguely think I remember them saying they were going to stop that service. Poop.
As the last ones to leave, jonboi_net and I got stuck paying for $20 of food and drinks which weren't ours.
I guess thats what we get for being the newbies.
Have a great day!
I just wanted to post some publicity for the show that I am in. I am in "The Rocky Horror Show" at Triangle! Productions. The building is called Theatre Theatre, and it is located on 35th and SE Belmont, across the street from the Avalon.
The show opens on June 10th, and runs for the 4 consecutive weekends, minus July 1 and 2. July 15 and 16, we will be performing at Wieden Kennedy in the Pearl District. All shows are at 8:00pm. The show stars Wade McCollum, star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Triangle! and Batboy at Portland Center Stage. Other performers include Don Horn, Jennifer Powell, Kevin-Michael Moore, Heather Nelson Robertson, Steve Brian, Jason Gilliland (me) Julianna Jaffe, and a few others! It is going to be INCREDIBLE! This is NOT the movie with the actors in front... it is the actual raunchy musical that the film was based on, backed my a kick ass band! If interested in more info, comment back, or go to www.tripro.org.

I am 19 with most experience being with children (years of summer and day camps, volunteer work and employed). I was an extra in a few movies... basically I have had various random jobs.
I am basically just looking for a retail or recreational job that pays minimum wage (or higher of course)
yes I am hitting up Craigslist but I am not really finding anything... I don't have a food handler's card and would personally like to stray from food.
my last resort is Lloyd Center and to apply before all the high schoolers get out of school.
anything you know and can share is appriciated!!!
I was sitting on my couch when all the sudden I hear a noise outside. So I look out and the glass table in my backyard shattered to pieces. I'm guessing because of the heat? So I went outside in shock to check it out and the pieces of glass on the ground were jumping and making popping noises.
it was tripppppy.
I'm about to commence flathunting in Portland from afar, and was curious to know if there were any places in particular that i should avoid at all costs because they are so awful and icky?!
And paradoxically, does anybody have any fond memories of places they've lived in Portland that they might be willing to suggest? I can cope with living in shoeboxes & things like that, because i don't have a tonne of material possessions & whatnot :-)
It's just a little daunting searching for a tiny place in such a big city, & any suggestions would be welcome!
Thanks so much to you all!
If you do, have you had the tailgate cables break?
who has one that I could use for a day or two?
I can promise to be very clean and careful with it.
who knows where to buy one and how much they cost?
thanks a lot!! :D
Do you think it's a bunch of crap and fuel cell technology will never be practical? Is this just political maneuvering by The Prez? I haven't done any research on hydrogen fuel cells, just wondering what your opinions are.
I'm looking for some opinionated folks for a website I made. And I know you guys have opinions.
It's a site for folks looking to leave the 9 to 5, the 40 hour work week, to regain the riches of time spent as one chooses vs. trading life time for paper money. Yes, you need a job to pay the bills, but you don't need to be financially wealthy to be happy. You can make do very well with less, and still have a fun, fullfilling life, even more so since you aren't slaving away your waking hours to support your "things." You don't need a gazillion CDs and outfits for every season and two cars and a McMansion. Wouldn't freedom be better than a fancy car that sits still 90% of the time? A return to a more simple style of living, of voluntary simplicity has been growing and attracting more and more folks all the time as the work hours and pressure to keep up with the Joneses increases. Many folks are looking for a way out, and finding life is a lot more pleasant on the other side, even if they have to give up buying all their books, eating out at fancy restaurants every week, or even just borrowing music and movies instead of buying them.
It's not easy, but community connections and advice from those who are working towards self sufficiency can definitely help, even if all you want to do is just relax your footprint on the planet a little.
Anyway, if this sort of thing interests you, my site is just beginning and needs members desperately to get conversation flowing!
It's free and I'm seeking articles from home-biz owners, stay at home parents, or folks that just have ducked out of the consumer society, or dream of doing so and need/want help or at least the feeling that they aren't alone in their endeavor. You'd get a writing cred for your resume at the least. =)
If not, that's ok too!
Have a great night!
If anyone knows of a good place to go camping, next to a lake prefferably, that isn't all filled up already, let me know~
