How's your morning going?

I should also note that it involves a little personality test to apply (nothing major), but you should use MSIE, FireFox takes a dump when trying to do it. Also, you should be able to pass a drug test. (it's a federal thing since we deal with shipping I think.)
I won't be able to access the internet again until tomorrow, so if you comment and I don't reply right away, that's why.
ETA: Speaking of generating cash, I've just unearthed two bolts of black cotton velveteen that I'd been hoarding for historical costuming that I never got around to using. I have one bolt at 7.25 yds (a little more) and one at 11.50 yds. It's 43/44" width. Will sell either or both bolt for $33 and $51.75 respectively, but I won't cut up the bolts. That's $4.50/yd. If anyone's interested.
That's right, there's gonna be a fat clothing swap so fatties that means its time to clear your schedules for that Sunday (Nov. 11), take a trip to the laundromat (or your basement) and wash all the clothes you want to get rid of (cause, seriously, going through people's old dirty clothes is a lot less appealing than going through a bunch of cute clean second-hand clothes) and clear some space out in your closet for all the cute new things you're gonna bring home
There will be a suggested donation at the door of $2 (more if you can but no one will be turned away for inability to pay) that will go to In Other Words and all clothing leftover at the end of the event will be donated to Bradley-Angle House
if you have questions or are interested in helping out with the event please email jack radish at jackrobinson @ riseup . net

I'd love to have greenery as well as red bricks or a cement wall but at this point am not incredibly picky. Any help would be appreciated!
Edited to add: we've decided on Meinig Park - the mom knows where it is! LOL
Please Listen I Have Something to Tell You About What Is
A book release party with Chris Johanson
Friday, October 26th, 7pm
921 SW Oak St.
Join us this evening to celebrate the release of Please Listen I Have Something to Tell You About What Is (Alleged Press/Damiani, 2007)! Please Listen... is a beautiful full-color, jam-packed retrospective of Chris Johanson's work from the past 10+ years, with text by Aaron Rose, and contributions by Sean Kennerly and Jack Hanley. Chris will be on hand to sign books in between djing! Refreshments will be provided.
From Printed Matter: In Chris Johanson's open-wound heart and comically sinister universe, nudist dancers, good vibes, emotionally centered people, forest energy and rainbows transform the fleeting and commonplace activities of the human experience into affecting parables frozen in time. Assembled here for the first time, over ten years of this artist's works are jam packed into one volume.
Chris Johanson is an artist dedicated to exploring the quandary that is the modern human condition, traversing the age of consumerism, and other perilous psychological phenomena such as self-help, psychotherapy, and cult spirituality. A veteran of the Northern California punk/skate scene, Johanson has been creating visual images since he was a teenager. His early raw, figurative drawings often utilized found or discarded materials such as reclaimed wood and paper, which were often found in dumpsters or construction sites. Since then he has expanded his oeuvre to include three-dimensional conceptual sculpture and abstraction, albeit executed with a sensitivity and wit perhaps unchallenged by any other artist of his generation.
Neither of the drivers in the two recent accidents were issued citations for failure to yield. A lot of folks were enraged by this. Maybe you were too. But hopefully it's for the right reasons.

The display is a huge, detailed Star Wars scene made out of Legos, complete with suspended fighter jets and miniture Storm Troopers, Yoda, Chewbaca, etc. (maybe more main characters but I didn't have time to look at it in detail).
It's in one of the windows for the Sunlan Lighting store and I highly recommend checking it out if you're in that neck of the woods.
Not meaning "liberal arts, english" or "liberal arts, painting", but a GENERAL liberal arts degree.
Is that worth my time?
Also, yes, I know I really need an academic advisor, but I was curious as to y'all's expeeerience. :)
(I want to be a teacher, ie: get masters in education)
What is the name and composer of the song they play in cartoons during a quiet moment? Not "Morning" by Edward Grieg, although it's close. Not "William Tell Overture" but the OTHER one?
This is driving us all batty.
Thanks a thousand
who are your favorite actors/actresses?
my favorite actress i think would be anjelica houston.
and my favorite actor... i love casey affleck.
EDIT: wasn't untraceable the movie shot in portland a little bit ago? i saw the preview while seeing 30 days of night:
anyone recognize anything?
2) slow--best locally owned bike shop with friendly mechanics. i'm looking for a place with a small staff who i can come to know by name and who can handle all of my bikes--i race and i commute, on rather different wheels. bonus points for between the river and the mountain, and within portland city limits.
thanks so much for your help, folks!
(which is a pair of Aiwa speakers that I bought off Craig's List for $25, and were apparently never sold in America)
Got any suggestions?
