Is there a way that I can get them to come at a different time?
Usually I don't care about other people's noises or businesses, but the smashing of metal is REALLY FREAKING LOUD and harsh on my ears.
I'm pretty sure it also wakes up my light-sleeping roommate.
I live in NE and Im having a hard time finding a gas station or somewhere that will re-fill my propane tanks. Where does one do this around here?
I guess if your point is stupid and meaningless vandalism, well congrats, you made the news. Get over yourself now.
If your point is to employ hardcore guerilla tactics to combat pollution, do you seriously think that combusting a couple thousand pounds of rubber and plastic is somehow LESS toxic than running an SUV?
Or perhaps the logic here that people thinking about buying SUVs or otherwise will be deterred by this spate of burnings, and instead opt to bike or publicly commute to work, thereby making the world a green and happy place again? Well as far as I can see, you're pursuing this albeit noble agenda by propagating fear and terror, inflicting thosands of dollars in damage and placing innocent lives at stake. I can come up with several ways of accomplishing the same goal without all of the above, and I'm sure you could too. Maybe you have. Have you tried them all, with as much effort and energy as you've put into the torchings?
Grow up and think about it.
Me, I am thinking about the "sprint triathlon" or "tri-it" (shorter and actually kind of feasable). But here's the catch.
It's $60 for an individual entry, but $35 apiece for each "team" member. I tried recruiting folks at work, but they were too chicken. My goal here is to actually complete the thing, as most of my training regimen is moving boxes around a warehouse and biking home with 50 pounds of groceries. I think that would make an awesome team - "we run to catch the bus, and now we're here 'cause we can be". Of course, real training is helpful too. Anyway, I'm looking for some loveable misfits to come along! Up until September, you get to have Rocky-style montages and take pride in the fact that you're going the distance.
What do you say? Is anyone game?
Also taken from Watershed, PDX, this morning at about 6am was a laptop, a big bundle of clothes (!) and a couple of backpacks. Looks like they came in the Milwaukie door and waltzed off with the gear of some travellers just passing through from the Maker fair in S.F.
The theft is less than three hours old!

I'm having a little origami party this weekend and I want to find a book that I read once when I was little...about a young girl who wanted to make 1000 paper cranes. I think it is a true story.
Also, do any of you have movie recommendations? Keep in mind, this "party" will include a 10 y/o girl.
Thanks so much!
If I forgot someone (or someone forgot to write their name down)
or if I misspelled a username, do speak up :).
Oh yeah, I'm in portland too.
Found this article interesting...so much for holding rain records, eh?

I was stuck in traffic coming home (and it was mayhem- lots of people on the on ramp decided off-roading into the Target parking lot was preferable, and I saw this guy in a Lexus almost get stuck [he spun his wheels for a long time] trying to do that) and the accident itself looked pretty nasty. A motorcycle was involved and whoever was on the motorcycle left most of their clothing behind, which I figured couldn't be a great sign. A guy sprinted past me on the shoulder to a van pulled to the side of the scene where a girl was bawling.
At first I was pissed about getting stuck.... I'd had a long day and I wanted to get home. But one look at that accident scene made me feel lucky that I got to come home to my kitties safe and sound. I hope everyone comes out of it okay. . .
When we lived in Pasadena (CA) we lived just a few blocks from this awesome Mediterranean grocery that had the best prices and the best tasting feta that I've seen anywhere, not to mention a number of other yummy goods that we bought there on a regular basis. It would be nice to find someplace comparable around here.
Likewise, has anyone seen Spitiko olive oil around town anywhere? Or a similar fruity tasting, extra virgin olive oil? We've tried others even from our old Mediterranean grocery. But, none of the ones that we've tried so far live up to the delicious, yummiliousness of Spitiko.
Are we doomed to stocking up on the stuff when we go back to California to visit friends and family? Or does anyone know of a place to find this delicious liquid gold?!?!?
