I feel really bad for my office mate - her very sick friend passed Friday afternoon. Buuuuuuuut since clocking in at 8am today - ALL she has done is called friends to let them know she passed, (which has lead to sobbing and very personal conversations about this woman to play out at her desk, around four of us), and call

It's really not too awful riding to work in the dark and rainy weather -but then there's you. And you, and you. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad you use a light – you would be even more of an asshole if you didn't – and perhaps a blinking light does save battery life. But, really: Blinkety BLINK blink blink Blinkety b

Female, 42, just dumped by the 48-year-old man I've been dating for six months. It started out as a Craigslist "Casual Encounter" and turned into something wonderful, caring, monogamous/exclusive from early on, and the first opportunity I've ever had to explore D/s (I'm the "s"). He "met someone new." My bur

I've asked my Republicant brother-in-law to give me details numerous times. Details about the shit he spews, and he can't. He usually just repeats himself, changes the subject or gets all pissed. Him: "We's over-regulated and it's Obama's fault!" Me: "Ok, can you give me an example of over-regulation? If you're so up and

Frankly it pisses me off that I am paying roughly $3000. dollars year in just property taxes, for what? Only to hear that every bureaucracy associated with city of Portland wants more money, and in the end no one at the city is held accountable for how it is spent. Their may be some occasional news coverage relating to

I received a "voter guide" from the Oregon Right to Life in my mail today and GOD-DAMN, I'm pissed. I went to their website to give them an earful and wouldn't you know it, I had to call their "office" (likely a basement) in Salem. I really despise these right-to-lifers and especially those crazy protesters on MLK by the

Having traveled extensively, it appears that when it comes to Portland people, things are often withheld just to be proper or polite, and so many may be irritated at each other and not know the reason why.
