Minky is mod!

An open letter to Mark, the obsessed Glen Phillips fanboy.

I don't even understand how Glen Phillips acquired an obsessed fanboy, since he's pretty mellow and isn't a super famous pop-singer or a member of a boy band. But, somehow, he has. Said idiot fanboy, whose name is apparently Mark, was camped out at the Aladdin all day Saturday (since 10 in the morning), so he could stalk Glen Phillips into singing a particular song for him and his girlfriend.

Every time I've gone to a Glen Phillips show in Portland, Mark has been there. He's always first in line, he always sits front row center. He bounces, claps, chair-dances, high-fives other fans and generally annoys everyone around him who isn't also insane.

If you are Mark, please understand that your fellow concert goers hate you because you're ruining the show for the rest of us. We can see (and hear) you up there acting like an idiot. If you know Mark, please ask him to settle the fuck down. I don't want to know what Glen Phillips thinks about you, but you can bet it's a damn sight nicer than what I'm thinking about you right now.

I like the music of Glen Phillips just as much as you do, Mark. It means just as much to me, probably more, to see him in concert. You are not impressing me with your "I'm a bigger fan than you" routine. I highly doubt you're impressing Glen Phillips with your hyper-manic antics and obsessive behavior. Take some goddamned ritalin and sit the hell down. Hoe sit down!

Call me crazy, but does anyone remember the TV-movie/miniseries of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe that was out in the early/mid-1990s? It was an animated one, I recall, but very beautiful and amazingly detailed. I watched it when I was younger.

Any recollection or idea of where I could find a copy of it would be great. All the internet has lead me to is the 1979 animated version, and the 1988 BBC miniseries version... and of course the 2006 version.

Gigantic Moving Sale -- Pass It On to Portland Friends!

After an historic 18-year run, during which legends were born, I am moving out of the Hoyt St. house. Yes, it's the end of an era, but don't despair -- you can score multiple mementos if you come by today. There's lots of free stuff on the front porch, and if you come inside you will find:

*baby and boy's clothing
*women's clothing, accessories and shoes (lots of vintage)
*costume jewelry, including lots of vintage and loose beads
*arts and crafts supplies
*stacks and stacks of books and magazines -- all sorts -- lots of kids stuff and art reference titles
*outmoded electronics and media -- tv, dvd players, stereo, speakers, records, videos, random computer crap
*furniture -- a couple great vintage pieces that need to be re-upholstered, two 7-foot bookshelves, lots of chairs, metal stands, magazine racks, lamps, some store fixtures
*miscellaneous housewares, kitchen items, towels, linens, etc.
*ridiculous amounts of toys (mostly new, some vintage)
*vintage educational materials
*lots of artwork, posters, prints and empty frames
*home decor and objets d'art
*and more!

Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm,
Please don't come early!!!

Swordfighting update

UPDATE: If the weather holds, we'll be in Laurelhurst park today (Sunday) on the tennis courts from about noon-onwards. Feel free to stop by, bring your own gear if you want, etc. or just come watch. We're pretty nice peoples, but there is a lot of cursing when someone gets bopped on the head so.. you know.. don't come if that stuff bugs you. Um, and play is at your own risk, we aren't responsible for any poked-out eyes, etc. Just sayin'. ;)

Ony a male could link flossing to masterbation!

I told a friend I didn't like the new floss sticks, they make my wrist hurt. He replied with "they don't bother me, because I have a *very* flexible wrist..." as he eagerly made the inaproprate hand motions. *lol*

Oh, to wonder how the male mind works... course, its the female mind that I find confusing and intimidating. Odd? maybe. *smile*

Is Turbotax a rip off?

I just filed my federal and state taxes through Turbotax online. My taxes are very straight forward, I just claim one deduction for interest paid on my student loan. Turbotax charged me $85. Did I just get screwed?
I think next year I'll just get the forms and mail them in.


Oh great and all knowing Damn Portlanders.... please tell me where one may find an establishment that has a proper snooker table. Preferably of the 10 - 12ft variety.
