on It’s been way too long since I wrote a Cheers and Jeers blog!

Cheers: to Kevin for setting up the amazing Jennifer Batten house party this Friday night. I can’t wait!

Bummer: to the poor guy who drove a brand new Saturn sports car off the end of a car carrier truck this afternoon, and forgot to extend the drive rails off the back! DOH! He realized what he had done when the car hit the ground nose first. This is the car:

Cheers: to DJ Myke for taking the Anonymous Notes challenge and pimping me in his blog.
Jeers: to the City of Portland for raising meter rates AND charging on Sundays.
Jeers: to the City of Portland for eliminating Fareless Square on the downtown bus routes. I know, I know, you can still take Max and the street car in Fareless Square.
Cheers: to the readers of The Portlander for making my Storm Large article the most-read article on the site for the month of August so far.
Cheers: to Rick’s Wild Seafood food cart on 3rd and Ash in downtown Portland. Most awesome seafood chowder, Mahi Mahi tacos, and halibut fish and chips.
Jeers: to Murphy’s Law. I had an audition for four small roles on the TV show Leverage the one week this summer when I was out of town. Really bad timing.
Cheers: to psychic Suzanne Jauchius for giving me an advanced copy of her book, and giving me a great interview for an upcoming article in The Portlander. Stay tuned.
What else? Did I miss anything?
