It’s official: I hate Portland Oregon

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

A brief explanation why I think Portland sucks: its dog owners don’t know shit. And that’s a fact.

Random notes

Monday, November 15th, 2010

I’m in information overload right now – cramming into my head a 2 1/2-inch thick binder full of sometimes esoteric data well beyond my usual comfort zone (financial info and accounting, anyone?), as I get ready to interview a few arts organizations. Too many words, too many numbers. But of course, when it rains, it […]

Notes: Traffic volume, hormone levels

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

When I was at yesterday’s Committee of the Whole at City Hall, I listened to the City’s engineers talk about cars and vehicular traffic, and how it relates to the question of whether or not to keep Victoria’s Johnson Street Bridge (also known as the Blue Bridge). Out of the blue (this being the color […]

Notes: spatial arrangements for cars and kids

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

Bear with me, gentle reader, as I try to describe in words a spatial relationship. Something about how the combination of roads and a school near my house affects pedestrian movement has been bugging me. Around the corner from where I live are two east-west running arterials, Yates (one-way west-bound) and Fort (one-way east-bound), that […]

Notes: Grist-ly.

Monday, January 19th, 2009

I checked into my blog’s admin pages last night to post my Sunday Diigo links. I’m aware that I last blogged – about “mystery” of all things – on January 12, which happened to be my mother’s birthday. I don’t especially like thinking about my deceased parents. They were bonkers, frankly. January 12 would have […]

Notes: Mystery

Monday, January 12th, 2009

As I was on a sort of nostalgia rag (see my comments to the Freshness post, for example), I was reminded of a book by Louise Huebner (go ahead, google her), which I read when I was 14. Her book, while having an eccentric title, was about power and control, a topic of keen interest […]

Notes: Gaia

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Musing this morning on the article I found through one of John Geraci‘s tweets, Green Algae Bloom Process Could Stop Global Warming by Andrew Williams in Clean Technica, I wondered whether the earth is growing us up. You know, like parents grow up kids? It seems our projects and responsibilities get bigger, same as when […]

Notes: Housing 2.0

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

I’m finally finishing the article that was due a few days ago – hate being this late. Prompted by what I came across in several articles recently, it’s about housing for people who are homeless. Except I’m looking at this as a “2.0” issue (yes, I know we all have two-dot-oh coming out our ears, […]

Notes: feminism.

Monday, January 5th, 2009

Occasionally, I note that some articles about feminism have people talking – but I’ve stopped reading them. On occasion it struck me that an article will approach the topic from a generational p.o.v. to ask how a new and younger generation has changed the thinking around feminism. (“New and younger” just makes me feel “old […]
