I think it's vegan.
There is yet another ridiculous campaign from the fat haters out there that says Santa should no longer be fat. Along with the Pillsbury Doughboy's slimmer body and the push for the Cookie Monster to eat more vegetables, this is yet another bucketful of stupidity.
Thankfully, some smart people got together to make a stink about it and get some good done as well! This is some great activism!
If you believe Santa belongs on a sleigh instead of a stairmaster, sign the petition. Your support will do more than Keep Santa Fat. For every signature, DVA Advertising and Public Relations will donate a pound of food to America’s Second Harvest to help feed the hungry in our communities. And DVA will keep donating until we reach 50,000 pounds of food. Help feed the cause on behalf of the North Pole’s finest.
Keep Santa fat!

Instead, I've set us up for the 18th. Which is groovy since it's before I leave town.
So to summarize: meetup will be Tuesday, December 18th, at 7pm, at the East Bank Saloon. There will be no particular theme but goofy holiday attire will be wolf-whistled at. Probably. Meetup FAQ is here; minors are welcome until 10pm or so.

Recap: me – woman living alone in NW Portland, who had a stranger knock on her door at 10:30 p.m. last weekend (posted about it here on DP).
Now, I like to play in traffic, and don’t much mind the thought of being killed by a vehicle, but to be hurt deliberately by a stranger, I REALLY don’t want to go that way. If this guy turns out to be for real, he’s going about things the wrong way. He should stay OUTSIDE the building and ask questions, or put up a flyer or something. But I never heard him at anyone else's door. So if he isn’t for real, then he is a stalker and I want to warn others about him.
Thanks for all the love, I'm feeling less creeped out now!
Then come play Rock Band tonight at Ground Kontrol at 9:00pm for free!
Ground Kontrol will feature the game on a giant projected screen, on stage, with stage lights, and played over their huge soundsystem. Ground Kontrol is at NW 5th and Couch. Bring your friends and form your own band! Rock Band and Ground Kontrol, its a match made on the stairway to heaven.
P.S. I call dibs on Ever Fallen In Love by the Buzzcocks.
EDIT: Thanks! You guys are awesome!
Wow - the ice storm is really a devastating state of emergency for folks in Oklahoma. People (lots of people) are without power. And it's cold!! They say it could take up to 10 days for the power to return? Goddamn?
If that happened, here, right now - what would you do? Are you prepared for anything remotely similar?
I don't know, it just made me think. I have plenty of canned food - enough to survive for maybe a week, I guess - but if all the power around town went out - doesn't that stop your facet water? I don't have bottled water laying around.
The cats just ate the last of their food - I suppose I could feed them raw chicken from the freezer.
Curious - if you were to take inventory right now - would you be covered for a week with no power, stuck in your home?
Update: DPer's are SURVIVORS!!
It was the perfect sauce. Creamy, smooth, garlicky. I can't seem to reproduce it. Every recipe is sticky and thin and flavorless. And it tends to coagulate as it cools.
Do you remember that Mac and Cheese? Do you have a recipe that approximates it? If not the flavor, at least the texture and I could screw with the garlic/wine/whatever myself?
Why donate to OCAC? In addition to being the regional underdog art school, OCAC is the only school that commits to 20% of Art Adventures summer camp students being scholarship students from disadvantaged homes. Last year, OCAC granted 234 scholarships. Journeys in Creativity, their program for Native American students, is 100% scholarship-funded. That program is successful enough that student artwork will be featured at the Smithsonian Museum of Native American Art in March 2008.
So, without further ado:
My friend and I are looking to hitch a ride to Olympia from NW or SE Portland tomorrow.
We are two very chill college students, who will chip in gas money and fun conversation, of course!
Let me know if you're heading that way!
Portland related cause we like good deals :)

May: Portland Masturbate-a-thon (Reform School Theme)
Take a look, it's written by someone who's taste in music i fully trust and honor.
I am looking for locally owned or smaller stores than Michael's, etc.
If you're nice once I get settled I can bring cupcakes to a Damned Portlanders meet-up. :)
willing to pay extra to have it done, it's for a wedding present :)
Money is no object ... kinda. I'm not talking about overnighting shit from NYC, but I don't mind paying the buck for delivery at the time I want.
Any help? Thanks.
Also, for no reason at all, "A Goofy Movie" is on right now.
Goodbye broken pile of wood!
The only funny part of this movie. =)
*hides from his gf as she loves it*
I am still in the process of things like what pieces to pick, the framing and matting, etc. I am also not familiar with how showing at a gallery works and things of the nature. I am still in the process of developing a website and host the majority of my stuff on DeviantArt but I figured it wouldn't hurt to start using LJ to post my work, talk shop with other photographers, and just network to the best of my abilities. In fact, I just posted my first piece on LJ earlier this evening to kick things off. :D
If anyone has some good information, that would totally rock hard.
My question is - what the hell is going on! As I'm typing this the lights are dimming on and off again and I'm just waiting for the circuit trip again. Has anyone on here living in an older house experienced this? It is so annoying but I also hate calling our rental agency - RMS - as they are about as helpful as a stack of bricks.
Edit: So the power just went out and that's with...a room light being on and two laptops being plugged in. Oh, that bathroom light is on too. Swear word.
