I think I'm done here. My account is up for renewal and I find I'm unwilling to put up the money to continue my subscription. After the transformation into whatever this site is now I have lost pretty much all interest. For those of who I have continued to read this long after I stopped updating, thank you. I appreciate your tenacity, and...

Enjoy your time away. See you when you get bored with not being bored with this place. wink

Peace dude, have some good living out in the real world. Though we all know the internet is the real world.

This Thanksgiving I am spending without family, friends, or loved ones. A few minutes ago I made a reservation for dinner at Urban Farmer. It's been a long time since I've taken myself out for dinner I fear I may have forgotten how. But I guess you just have to get back in the ol' eating alone scene sometime, so it might as...

For some reason The Onion hates SG. I don't know why.

Still doesn't load, but it might be my awesome computer.

He just might have. Or he cursed the site.

I posted this in Facebook:

I think if conservatives were REALLY against gay marriage they should prove it, and not just outlaw marriages between same sex couples but invalidate all marriages where one member is gay. Why haven't we seen that legislation?

After I posted it I realized that the biggest problem of being a liberal with a sense of humor is that the...

In 2 weeks I will be seeing Skinny Puppy at the Crystal Ballroom. I have just learned that a mere 9 days later They Might Be Giants will be playing at the same place, and you can bet I'll be at that show too. November looks awesome so far.

I've always thought TMBG would be a great live show.

I haven't updated this in a while not because I don't have anything to write about, but because I'm overwhelmed by how much there is to say. Every day since I've moved in I've done something, and all of those somethings have felt amazing. Tonight I took the streetcar down to Powell's and bought a book. When I came...

Hello from downtown Portland, bitches! I am all moved in, and now have internet and cable. All the work is done. The Girlfriend even unpacked and put away most of the boxes so this move is over. Today I'll be going back to the old apartment to turn in keys and sign any final paperwork.

My apartment is even more amazing than I thought...

FYI, I cook and do dishes. We have plenty of folks to stay with up there, I'm just giving you a hard time because you're bragging about your new place. tongue

I don't think we're even going to be able to think about moving for several months, unfortunately.

toothpickmoe:

Damn, total apartment envy.

The emotional weight of moving never presses on me until I start packing. For weeks I've been making plans, calling movers, arranging utilities. None of that brings home the idea that you are leaving things behind, and going somewhere new like placing a book into a box. Waves of nostalgia and contemplation of an unknown future collide and swirl to create a numbing bittersweet...

The job market is so bad I could see some people actually considering that an acceptable trade-off. tongue

Anyway, I've applied to thirty jobs since I've been here. Starsucks was just one and I was only pissed because the whole app process including this virtual job tryout thing I had to do took several hours to complete. All I can do is keep trying. And be very very grateful that Rob is still getting UI checks and his parents are letting us stay for free so we're still saving rather than spending what we don't have.

Are you moving in with your girl?

It's the kind of morning where I can think of a different post for all of the different blogs/portals I maintain on the internet. That, for those keeping score, is now 5 as I have stepped gingerly into the world of Facebook. Normally I write one thing (usually on Livejournal) then if I like it enough, or think someone who won't see...
