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.

dear garth's organic gardening:
don't wait to call me until half an hour AFTER we are supposed to meet to tell me "we don't really have anyone else out that way, so it really won't work out for either of us." when i ask if you have another recommendation ("out there?" no, i want someone else who will stand me up!), don't tell me a name but that you don't have the number "off the top of my head. i'm sure it's in the phone book, though." also, after being so unhelpful, don't ask me to mention your name for the referral credit.
