    cannot deal with lloyd center

    I worked at sear's there for like a week

    eeesh, that seems like a horrible place to work

    thankfully I work at a restaurant there that's right outside of the main complex, so I am able to make decent money and not have to deal with some of the types that dwell within Lloyd Center

    but still, damn

    But I'm one of the types that dwell within Lloyd Center. Luckily, not in retail, foodservice, or customer support, so that's comfy.

    And Yuki on 14th and Broadway is good too. And Sushiland is in between the two.

    You guys, Portland has a doner kebab restaurant. I think it's on washington and 4th? But yeah, apparently no one knows about it. My friends and I went there when we last visited portland and oh my goodness.

    To be fair, the doners themselves are pretty average, and they're $7 too which is sort of silly, but if anyone in portland is ever like "holy crap I need a doner right now to remind me of bein in Germany" or something, there's a place for you. Also I think they're open till 4 AM on weekends or something so that is also cool

    Portland, how I hate you.
    I hate your rain. I hate your refusal to provide adequate freeways. I hate your bicyclists who give me the finger because I couldn't see their tiny little recumbent. I hate your nearby coast that is always freezing, even if I go there in August, and which never has girls in bikinis. I hate your fat chicks. I hate your rain. I hate that when it's not raining, you still can't do anything because it will probably rain soon. I hate your summers that are beautiful just long enough to get Californians to think this would be a great place to live but will still rain on the weekends. I hate that you have all this water, but it only turns into snow every other year, and usually only for a day or two. I hate that your trees are green all the time, and so autumn to spring is one long dreary gray sludge. I hate your meth epidemic. I hate that after two weeks of straight rain I can understand the need to shoot up with poison. I hate your 19 hour drive to see the sun.

    TL;DR: Hate

    God dang Californians. Don't understand that moving to the Rocky mountains means dealing with feet of snow from October to March (give or take)

    Do you guys have Ikari Warriors? :P

    No, but we've discussed building a cabinet to house games like Ikari Warriors, Heavy Barrel, etc and making a cool multi-game out of it. That's usually a decent way to get somewhat lesser-known games out on the floor. So - maybe someday!

    this is pretty damn cool that you are on here providing customer service in your time off, and I think that is neat.

    you are a dude that represents portland well I think

    Thanks, that's cool of you to say!

    Will work for quarters.

    The Sunset (26) has been under construction the entire twenty-five years I've lived here. However, very little has been done to improve traffic flow, and it routinely backs up all the way to Hillsboro.

    I grew up in Texas and loved every minute of it, I'd love to move back there and live. But I'm also a big fan of where I live now. We have a really vibrant downtown with plenty of bars and good food. We have music venues that regularly get bands I want to see and the few bands I do want to see who don't come here stop in Orlando which is only an hour drive. We have beaches that are pretty damn nice(Although supposedly there's oil headed this way.) and plenty of hot girls in bikinis to populate them. It does get pretty damn hot but you sort of get used to it. I lived in montana for 3 months and hated every minute of it. I couldn't just run to the store and get something because the biggest store in town was Wal mart and even they didn't have everything. There was no chik-fil-a, no best buy, no borders or barnes and noble, no clothing stores to speak of and for some reason I was in that zone on amazons delivery map that basically meant fuck you even if you spend a hundred bucks you won't get it in less than a week. Also there was only one movie theater with 5 screens that only showed horrible movies. Also no record store. Also meth. On a happier note I really like Beirut! I'd love to go back and live there.

    I didn't even know what the fuck and avitar was until about 5 minutes ago.

    And west of Portland there is a 50% chance that some portion of it will be closed by a mudslide.

    Want to move is difficult

    I actually really like LA from what I've seen (which is incomprehensible to most Californians but fuck it) but I'd need $millions to live there.

    Would move is also difficult, I am picky, and right now I am digging the sunshine and am still in my California honeymoon period (again, incomprehensible to many Californians who can do nothing but rave about Seattle)

    I am actually very happy with the Bay Area

    I would not move any further inland

    I would not move back to the UK at this point, no way

    I'm fine now, thank goodness. still, that was scary as hell

    so, I was closing at work tonight and everyone else had already left so I was alone in the building

    as I'm closing out the credit card charges, I look up and see a running car parked right outside, facing me with its headlights on

    just for reference, this was over an hour after we had already closed, most of the lights were turned off, the neon "open" sign was off, all the other stores in the shopping center were either vacant or closed, the only other car in the entire parking lot was mine, and they hadn't ever come out of the car or tried to make me aware of their prescence

    the storefront is all windows and a glass door, I'm in clear view of this guy

    naturally I'm a tad suspicious, so I decided stick around for a while with the doors locked and watch the car

    ten minutes passed and the car hadn't moved except to make extremely slow circles in the parking lot in front of the building

    now I am genuinely freaking out

    I called my dad at this point and explained the situation to him

    he shows up a few minutes later and comes inside the store, where we continue to scope things out

    after a while, with the car still alternatively staying parked and milling about, my dad goes outside and the car slowly takes off

    so all in all this strange car spent about a good thirty minutes terrorizing me

    like, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if I find out tomorrow that there's been a break-in

    That sucks Kosh. Glad it turned out ok--odd to say this but hopefully he's just some robber thug and not a stalker! Sounds like that's the case.
