Was about 12 (probably at least 14 in my case, since I mostly like to go just a smidge under the speed limit, especially on new and/or windy routes) minutes, going to Live Laugh Love Art, a business in Beaverton. I nearly blew it off, partly because I suspected it’d be another “not worth it” Podunkertunity, but the main reason was I didn’t want to … Continue reading Today – driving practice, design, art, brownies
It was the third trip made to update my eyeglasses. Turns out my $600¹ frames weren’t a very good idea, in 2016, because now the lenses are fatter than the frames. I went $150 cheaper, for lenses at an independent firm. They had a flaw right in the middle of the right. I was going to upgrade immediately but they talked me into giving the … Continue reading [updated] I’m getting a lot of practice driving to downtown & back anyway
Not reading my cover letter that clearly states I’m in Portland, at the moment. As I’ve known for years, my location is the problem.

Also no companies pay relocation unless you’re a corporate manager in the 130-150K range. I tell them … Continue reading Yet another job option emailed me back for an interview I can’t make

Just sayin’. Also the dogs only have bones to eat because I thought to call the market and check if they had chicken backs, as we were downtown already. Continue reading He wouldn’t have left the DOGS without food
I really hate it. For one thing, it makes me wonder what else is going on in there, and is it related to the tail light, DIY repair? Plus on a gloomy day, I can get in the car and head out & notice everyone else has their lights on. Are mine on? I forgot to look! I’m not sure! I seem to have some … Continue reading My dashboard, headlight icon is definitely broken

Some good things did happen. In only five shows as an adult Theodora won best shorthair Scottish Fold in the world, TICA’s last season, which closed at the end of April. And then I started a new job, and got my license, despite hearing so many times while practicing how this or that would result in a fail. I was so convinced of this I … Continue reading I’m really, really glad 2018 is over
