wish list

It's my birthday soon. Hint-- I was born on the same day as every year since they've been keeping track. January 1st! Wish list:








Who wants to go to coos bay!?

Oh man, it began snowing this afternoon, right in time for rush hour. I don't ride no knobby tires, so you know I was hoofing it to the bus stop. I was on the bus for about 45 minutes and we went about 7 blocks, so I was like, whateva, all the crack heads on this bus with their laughing and makeup applying and loud cell phone conversations were driving me nuts, I like walking in the snow, let's do this! I'm swallowing that $2. So I stopped for some pizza to get my strength up and I thought about getting a beer to go, but I wanted full capacity. So I biked for a little bit down side streets, but then I got into the city center with the icy cold streets and lots of traffic and no acceptable side streets so I just started walking. I walked a long ways-- there would be no real good side streets for trying to bike the rest of the way. The Max train was backed up and packed, the buses were all foggy, and the drivers were impatient and really acting against everyone's self interests. I love how people lose their minds when it snows. There was a pickup peeling out major on the Burnside Bridge, and all these passers-by were trying to help the truck get going. Only they were pulling up on the truck and pushing, rather than trying to weigh it down to initiate the friction. HELLO! It's not stuck in a snow drift! One kid who was right in front of me jumped over to help push, and all I saw was the right rear wheel spinning feverishly and spraying, just pouring street scuz up onto the poor fellow's pants. It was launching all this disgusting matter right into his whole lower half. bummer.
