I pay $65 a month to ride your vehicles in zones 1 and 2. I understand that sometimes you are delayed, and usually can't help it. I am getting kind of sick of you being so off schedule, in fact, that I constantly miss buses and am late for everything and can't depend on you at all. With all the technology available today, you'd think the phone or internet schedules might be correct. I've memorized almost every major stop ID in Portland, but it's useless, you're constantly fucking me.
Here is how it goes:
When I call and have 5 minutes, you come 4 minutes early.
If I call and you say you'll be here to take me out of the cold rain in 3 minutes, you show up in 20.
How can you be so inconsistent?
Also, why are your drivers so angry? Sometimes I feel bad for using public tranit. I've actually seen bus drivers, a lot lately, talking on their cell phones WHILE DRIVING and some TEXTING while driving. I find this INSANE.
I am working on an art quilt and I need some assist if you ride trimet on paper passes and have a scanner. I am trying to create a printed cloth of the 2 hour use paper passes, I have a few but on their own they are not varied enough. So I need several scans of assorted tickets to get this to work... if you have some laying around, and access to a scanner, I would appreciate a JPG or PNG of a whatever you have, your layout (close together and orderly or scattered about)... try to keep it down to a 7x7 area so the file is smaller. They can overlap to some degree but I need spaces between them for the most part for the layering I am going to to do to work right, as I am going to layer the images to make the final design I wind up printing out...
If you are willing to help an old lady out, please mail your scans to me at dejablu503 at yahoo dot com.
I just discovered a German band a few days ago, via the interblag, called Wir Sind Helden, that I like a lot. Wikipedia says they're not well-known in the English-speaking world except for the UK, so I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to procure one of their CDs here in Portland. Bonus points if it doesn't cost my immortal soul/first-born child/arm/leg/more than $30, because I'm sure it will probably be an import if it's available here. Right now I want either Die Reklamation or Von Hier an Blind.
While I'm posting, where can I find a paperboy/newsboy cap?
i took a last minute train jaunt to and from seattle this weekend and, as an avid discount hunter, i found a sweet online coupon code for amtrak, just for the cascades... 25% off! no advance purchase required. just put the code v777 in the promotional code field when you order tickets online. yay discount!
Opening night for my show "Tonya and Nancy- the Rock Opera" is right around the corner. It opens on Feb 21 at the World Trade Center in downtown Portland.

Tickets are available through me or www.tripro.org.
I hope to see you all there! :)
I have a tall tree in my backyard that looks like it's dying and could possibly fall on my neighbors house. What's the deal on arborists? Do they give free estimates? How much do they traditionally charge (ballpark)? Can anybody recommend one?
