jewish writer/former screenwriter/recovering accountant from Boston now moldering in the rain in Portland, OR. and, yes, of course i should move but I battle with Agoraphobia and have trouble even leaving my apartment. but i'm blessed to have a fabulous 9 year old service dog Cocoa Chanel. Ella Fitgerald was my Official SD. she was 11 years old and so perky and such a trooper but she passed away in July. Cocoa has been stepping up and taking her job very seriously, which is so moving. so we now have a kitten. he drives us crazy and then he conks out wrapped around cocoa and we forgive him. we thought he was a girl. i named "her" Gloria Steinem and she was a feminist and a feline-est. but it turned out that Gloria's Balls had dropped. so his name is Gary Cooper or G-Coop. as annoying as he is much of the time -- apparently he's a Teenager now -- he takes our focus off of losing Ella, which was my intent when we adopted him.

Tink. THANG is a Scrabble word & Vote for Progressive Slate!

Rate: 5 Flag

isn't that cool, tinkerbell!grrrl too and some others. in honor of your peeps, i vote for Pffffft.

godiverse, i hate technology. it freaking bites, dude. my laptop died and i was desperate and wanted to be able to return the new one, so i got a 17 freaking inch monster floor model at Radio Shack because i wanted to be able to return it without paying a restocking fes. too much experience with that crap/carp. 

well, come to find that i have vast trouble typing on this thang. can't seem to adjust to the typing section being only a portion of the keyboard. and it turns out that i don't really care about the enhanced visuals and larger screen. who knew????? i'm usually a fast typist and i get a thrill out of that... i know, kvetch kvetch kvetch, when i'm blessed to be able to afford a new computer at all. i also got a toshiba netbook because it's so freaking cute, thinking that i would WRITE IN COFFEEHOUSES. turns out i don't do that because i keep vampire hours and most wireless cawfee places close earl in this godforsaken Too Hip for School not a city just a big town city of Portland, OR. 

so, my current mission is to do a Michelin guide to local bars that do have wi-fi!!! i began last night with a venue that has Taco Tuesday. the worst tacos in the western world. not even tacos. and then i vomited all freaking night and now can't get the freaking stains out. godiverse really secretly loves me. he/it is just not effusive. that's my current theory anyway. he/it figures the inheritance that i seem to never ever receive and never will. that's it for a long long time. again, extremely gratefu for the moneyl. very very very grateful. but, shit, is a decent taco really that much to ask? and i seriously hate hate hate vomiting. 

okay, on to what is important. well, aside from the Scrabble breakthrouh that i hope makes Tinkertot as happy as it made me:

If you're NOT VOTING for these Progressive Slate selection or other remarkable organizations, please start doing it if it suits your politics and shit, at Pepsi Refresh. yes, i loathe corporations of every kind these days and soda is toxic as hell, but this program has given millions and millions of dollars away to extremely worthy causes. and it's something tiny that a person can do every day. 

so, here is the email with the info. you can also Search for whatever is your passion. i also vote for the Humane Society and the ASPCA since i LOVE animules sooo much.

Theodora you are back writing again !!! So glad to see you - love and hugs with a rate and a thumbs up - keep posting yes? And let us know how you have been and your pets.
the rate is to welcome YOU back, not for Pepsi, Theodora.
oh, rolling, thanks for the welcome! please copy and paste your posts into a PM or email -- (my wonderpups are Walking Medicine) -- because i'm slowly coming back, very tentatively, and there are several people whose names and avatars i would not want to see. very very very much not want to.

have a great night and/or night's sleep!
Very, very cool, Theo - and it's good to see you around!
It's good to see you back here, Teddy. People are still leaving, BION, and for the same reasons. But it's still a good place if you can limit your contacts to the good ones. Welcome back! Rated for good-ness.
