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.
3:48 PM: not at this address
i can barely believe it, but someone knock over the mailbox the whole block uses last night, one of those huge sturdy multi-box things bolted into *concrete*. the sound woke us when it fell, but we couldn't tell what it was until sven went to check the mail this afternoon. a couple of weeks the construction portapotty was knocked over by vandals and lay partway into the street for days. i love powell butte, i love the springwater corridor trail, i love this studio but i HATE this neighborhood. :(
update 01.30.06: could postal employess have a little compassion, please? i had to call three different numbers to get a response, and nobody was kind. i wasn't blaming them for the box being down; i just wanted to know how to get my mail, especially since i have artist's way registrations coming in this week! if i'm desperate i can apparently go down to the distribution center once every three days, though they "aren't staffed for it."
