Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
Southeast/Milwaukie
About Me:
I love Life. If you don't, please keep it to yourself, thanks. People who insist upon defining themselves by what they despise are boring and obnoxious.

I love animals and prefer them to most people. This sounds like a cliche but it's absolutely true. How many times have I scratched you behind YOUR ears?

I exercise regularly. Grudgingly, but regularly.

I quit smoking July 2nd of 2006. Hooray for me. I think I'd still like to smoke, but I'm sure I'm wrong.

My consumption of whiskey improves the companionship of those around me.

What do you love about Portland?
Dang near everything. Portland is like no other.
My music:
Lots. Lots and lots. Jazz, classical, rock, ambient, even some hip-hop and rap. Play me something, I'll tell you.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Southeast Portland. Used to live at SE 19th and Belmont and loved it, but every neighborhood is interesting and unique.
Favorite quote:
"Ignorance begets confidence more frequently than does knowledge." -Charles Darwin

The answer we're getting from Those Who Should Know (or is it Those Told To Tell Us?) is that the Earth has swung into the path of comet debris. That's the easy…

Spooky Spots

Bella approaches every party with the zeal of Patton crossing the Rhine, and never more so than when it's a Halloween party.

See all that? That is why we can only seat three people comfortably at the dining room table without someone dislocating a hip. As I write this, said party is…

AmsterDAMMIT!

I'm reading this excellent book about Amsterdam. The title of it is In the City of Bikes: The Story of the Amsterdam Cyclist, and it explores the impact the bicycle has had on the culture and economy of the Dutch capitol throughout its history and into modern times (the chapters that detail the absurdities and terrors experienced by the populace while under the heel of the German occupation during…

Tapping the Typery Thing

How to bust the blank page thingy.

You just do this. Type. Typey-type-type. Sooner or later something will bubble to the surface that is worthy of eyes other than mine.

I realize that this has not yet occurred here. Thanks.

I blame the government…
