On my way in to work I was listening to 105.1 and they were talking about Free-gans. Somebody called in and said they had heard about it on "A Portland community on Livejournal"
Come on, I know it was one of you!!!!
Portland related b/c most of you love cute n fuzzy animals.
Are there any farmer's markets open today or any day this weekend? I know there's the one at the PSU campus and the Saturday market, but I'm always seeing signs for smaller, neighborhood-type markets. I can never remember where exactly they are or when. Please help? If anyone has information to make my weekend, that would be great. Thanks.
I know a lot of them are not open this early in the season. I'm looking for the ones that are. I know they are open because people have been putting up sidewalk signs for them, I'm having a hard time remembering where and when they are.
it's pretty hot. so a big "pfft" to all you nay-sayers out there that said I shouldn't complain about gas prices or that my child should deal with public transportation.
thank you and good day.
oh and i'm sure some of you already knew about this, but others may not...
So my house now has hi-def LCD fancyness, but I need to get an HDMI cable to enjoy it's full bounty. I walked into Fred Meyers to get one and was quite shocked to discover that they cost almost FIFTY F_CKING DOLLARS. Radio Shack was the same.
I'd really like to get a cable this weekend, so in town is ideal, but I'll order one off the intertubes if need be.
It's a pretty solid fleecing of the general public, IMHO - sell a $3 cable for $50. Go Retailers!
...and have a delightful weekend everyone! :D
...come to the all ages show tonight at Rererato!
Whether you're over 21 or under, it's a good way to get your evening going early.

It's suggested donation of 4$, but no one is turned away, at an intimate artspace in the alberta district (5135 NE 42nd Ave).
Sad Music for Happy Humans goes on first at 7, show ends promptly at 10, beverages are available, but not the alcoholic kind!
Hope to see you there!
Anyway, I've had some rough abdominal pain for the last 4 days. I'm 30 days away from getting health care through work (typical). I can afford around a hundred or 150, but I don't even know where to go. Can anyone point me to a doctor in downtown or SE?
I can't fall asleep with tv/radio on. I have to have as much white noise as possible. Fans/machines. I like it to be as dark as possible and cool. I only sleep on my side. Sometimes I do the pillow between the legs thing if my back is bothering me...my chiro says do it all the time, but I don't. And I like to "hug" a pillow. Oh and ever since I got rid of my alarm clock, I sleep so much better. I don't usually need it to wake up, so I just use my phone...and I'm not checking the clock all night to see how much sleep I'm missing.

Copy pasted from myspace. Yup.
Edit: Stephen Malkmus is the guy from Pavement. If you care.
I work downtown, close to Pioneer Courthouse Square. Every month or so, a group of about 1-2 dozen young people jog onto the square and do some weird repetitive dance that involves hopping from one foot to the other while patting the head and rubbing the stomach, and chanting something in time to the footwork.
Once, I was close enough to determine that they were saying/singing Dylan's "Serve Somebody."
I keep meaning to ask you folks, but I always forget. They're out there right now. They usually hop around doing their thing for about 10 minutes, then hop away.
I suspect it's a group of PSU students? I thought it might be a Greek hazing thing, but there's guys as well as girls. And everyone's pretty chipper. Reminds me of the type of team-building exercises I'd do when I was doing theatre, or maybe it's a religious or faith-based group?
Maternal grandmother kidnapped grandson (took him to Battleground, WA) and served my boyfriend with (what I think are temporary custody) papers about Christmas time, I am asking him to find said paperwork but we are not wealthy people. Can you point me in the direction of free legal advice?
P.s. Mom is a violent criminal who has already had her parental rights taken away.
We are a couple of roller girls, a couple of WoW nerds, and a dude who works in a head shop. We party hard once in a while and like to keep things quiet the rest of the time.
ETA: Cats, outdoor smoking, and we're all 30ish.
maybe if i infect you with it.... i will be free!
saint cupcake's fat elvis is number one. :D

Working in a child care center, I get EVERYTHING.
