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.
i finally have all the water i'll need (14 gallons!) and most of my supplies. what i'm still missing:
* bike rack & lock (thanks for the lock, markalope! thanks for the bike rack, mike & kathy!)
* a/c car adapter for tori
* solar adapter for trixie's battery
* compressed air
* window coverings for trixie (solar reflectors, space blankets, etc.)
* loose shirts/clothing * something to cover my face during duststorms (bandana, scarf, etc.) (thanks, markalope!)
* dry ice
among other things, i need to start working on the origami stars, redecorate the logos, get trixie's back seat to fold down, and wrap up my email. *yawns*
oh, i should probably point out that i will be unlikely to get that job i just applied for. they want a master's degree (like the last time i applied for a psu job), and i know state hiring systems well enough to know they can't hire me if i don't meet the minimum required qualifications. but i also know that in this case, they're planning on using the pool of applicants for another job or two they may open within a few months that won't require a master's degree. hopefully, that will give me some more time to decide if this is something i really want to pursue (as markalope says, "it sucks to be good at something you don't like").
