Resolutions

It's time for me to start thinking about how to make 2013 a better year than 2012.  This year has been a bit of a challenge for yours truly, in the gainful employment-slash-keep your big mowf off the icecream-slash-is your bike a room accent or what?-slash-it's not cool to take out the recycling in your jammies-slash-I was surfing for job opportunities but look, funny cats! sense.  It's been a pretty tough year for all of us 47-percenters, certainly, what with…

Snow (Hold the Ice)

I want a white Christmas.

I know, I've stated here before that snow and I don't get along.  It's hella annoying to get around in, it creates laundry, it conspires with my capricious center of gravity to render me suddenly horizontal with a muffled thud (or not so muffled if snow's evil familiar, ice, has a vote), and it has this dark power it wields over motorists whereby it transform them into complete morons seemingly bent on crashing themselves into trees, houses, and each…

A Litterary Device

I'm too young to be a hippy.  I missed that bus by about ten years.  I mean to say, I don't have the means to carry the look off.  I hate the odor of patchouli; when we lived on Southeast Belmont, our downstairs neighbors' liberal use of the stuff was made evident by that miasma wafting upward into our apartment (that couple eventually birthed their child at home, and so now I associate the smell of patchouli with blood-curdling screams).  I can't wear my hair long anymore because it'll just…

Observe and Report

Last night I asked friends via Facebook what came to mind whenever they thought of Portland.  This gambit was in aid of two ends:  First, I was interested to see what they would choose that typified their perceptions and experiences of Portland, particularly those living outside the state of Oregon (some of mis amigos e familia live in Texas and New Mexico).  I expected to read broad strokes from them; Portlandia (and “Portlandia”), bicycles, coffee, bridges.  Secondly, it's always…
