i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
the ants! damn all their tiny black swarming hearts! they found the cat food, after spending so many months in blissful ignorance. if i were to create a short list of things i really disliked about california, ants would be on it.
also, my apartments are going to start charging us separately for water, sewer and trash. that'll be about $35 extra a month, which means $35 less per month to spend on credit card debt, which is my major goal this year. (it also means $420 less per year to spend on anything). the only good news on that is that they've decided not to increase the rent, too, so i'll have another year at $875/month , which sadly is a median price for a 1-bedroom in the area.
