Yo, bitch, what was that about? [Sep. 22nd, 2004|05:51 pm]
The American Caliban
Who is stealing his signs?

I was talking to the security guard at work this weekend while both of us were being very, very bored at the office. We were bitching about Los Angeles and its many flaws. He said he was from New York and wanted to go back. When I asked what he missed most about his home town he said "Hmm.. I think the filth. And the chaos."

I'm glad myself that I only have to go into this city once or twice a week now. It broke in the early 90s and was never fixed, and it is held together with sticky tape and lies.

In my own pueblo, it was announced recently that COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES TO MEET ON LEVEL PLAYING GROUND TO CLEAR THE AIR. I suppose the big fans they use for air clearing wouldn't work on a tilted playing ground.

Poll #354289 Whither?

I should move to

Portland, OR
Chicago, IL
New York, NY
Venezia, Italia
Nowhere; stay put

I vote SURFACE TO AIR MISSILE because the US may not be the place to be in a few months. OK, now.

If not Portland, then Vancouver, BC.

I'm currently working in Vantucky, WA. I second the motion: move to Portland instead.

Be a sheep, move to Portland like everyone else.

I voted NY, tho the winters would likely make you long for SoCal and NY has no Disney and Coffee Patios are pretty rare.

Also I predict within 10 years, Portland will be the "new LA" (especially if CA falls in the ocean) inspiring people to move someplace else to avoid the high cost of living and the city-esque life.

Perhaps even back to SoCal.

And hey there isnt a show called "The Portland" yet :)

Portland's a nice enough town, but I think it's starting to get JUST A WEE BIT OVERRATED these days.

Portland is the Place

None of the others compare. Portland has atmosphere, character, class and style. The others are just places.

Unsurprisingly, I voted for nyc. However, I have to admit that I really quite like Portland. Of course, my mother maintains that I only say that I don't totally reject the idea of living there because I actually just want to live in Powell's.

Yeah, "Where I would be happiest" should have been an option!
