Wanted: A Cow [31 Mar 2006|01:41pm]

Here's the deal:

One of our board members purchased one of the "art cows" that were all over Portland a few years back. The cow (known as "Cowmedia dell'Arte") was "donated" to Oregon Ballet Theatre and used in a comedic interpretation of The Nutcracker but the cow has gone missing...for several years. Now the board member wants her cow back and no one seems to know where it is. OBT has a new artistic director and almost an entirely new staff. If any of the previous staff members know where it is, they aren't talkin' so we're at a loss.

Rumor has it, the cow is somewhere at the Oregon coast in someone's field. I posted about this in damnportlanders about 2 months ago and received a reply that said I might find it somewhere along Highway 101 near Tillamook. My boss and I took a drive out there one weekend without success.

I know this whole situation is very amusing but seriously, if you can help me out, I'll be a hero among my co-workers. And so I pose this question to you in desperation: Have you seen this cow?!

Hi All! [02 Dec 2005|06:52pm]

Hey, I, for some reason, decided to log out of my LJ name to see my public posts and see if there were any new replies! Well, I was invited to this community like a year ago, I think!! LMAO!! K, maybe not that long...but atleast a couple months or more!!

My name is Jessica (22). I am from Tillamook! I am originally from the Gresham/Troutdale area. We first moved to Rockaway Beach in June 2003 because of my hubby's new job at the mill. A year later we moved to Tillamook and 6 weeks later, had our 3rd baby girl LOL

Yep, I have 3 little girls. Sarah, who is 4.5yrs (6/6/01), Sammy AKA Samantha, who is 2.5yrs (3/5/03), and Summer, who is 17 months (7/6/04) and is breastfed and cloth diapered.

My husband Carl (25) and I just finally got married on 7/23/05 LOL So yeah, 3 kids and 5 years later, we finally tied the knot!

Tillamook is incredibly boring! I really don't like it out here at all. I miss my family. I guess it is because I don't know but maybe 3 of my neighbors and that is about it. Oh, and a few people from Sarah's preschool...but I just feel so lonely.

I would love to be able to get together and meet some other girls from around this area! I travel to Portland ALOT to see family.

Well, that about sums me up! Wanna know anything else? Just ask! :D

Is there any place in Seaside/Astoria to get a good haircut? I usually go to Eugene, but I want my hair cut now and have no idea the next time i'll be there.

I hope it's ok to post this here.... [08 Sep 2005|03:26pm]

[ mood | curious ]

If not feel free to delete, I've already posted in a few travel communities with zero results, but I would like some help.

Next week I'm headed down to Cannon Beach, (from Seattle), for some much needed rest and relaxation. I was told Cannon Beach would be the perfect place for that so I went ahead and booked a place to stay, without checking out what the entire city has to offer...

The only thing I plan on doing besides relaxing is enjoying and photographing the sunsets, are the any other things I should plan on snapping some pictures of? Anything off the beaten path I should be sure to see or do? Any recommendations on places to eat at or to stay far far away from? How about a nice bar or tavern where a single girl can belly up to and feel welcomed by the locals?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or recommendations.

New to list [02 Sep 2005|12:19pm]

Hi, I'm Tiffany George, Mrs. George is you go to WGS or WHS! I live in Astoria, I like to hang out on the beach or at the lake. I like to fish and garden. If I'm looking for something cheap to do with my daughters, we go to the Astoria Column or take a trolley ride. If I'm hanging out with my hubby, cousin, or friends, we go to the movies at the Columbian $3 theater. I don't drink, but they do serve beer and pizza in the balcony for those 21 and over.

I also love Halloween and Christmas.

If you know of free or cheap activities on the North Oregon Coast for kids, I'd love to hear them!

Hyvaa Ilta,

I am considering moving to Oregon sometime but have no idea where. I am looking for an open minded, liberalish city. Lots of beautiful nature (more trees than concrete please!). Warmish weather. I suffer from Seasonal Depression but I like the rain so I could deal with rain as long as there are sunny days as well. Preferably somewhere with a lake or river for swimming (or at least nearby). I can deal with snow but I don't enjoy the Michigan winters I get here, I HATE being cooped up for 5 months of the year!

I am an activist-type, vegetarian, bisexual, dirt worshipping tree hugging hippy with a computer nerd of a boyfriend, 2 cats a guinea pig and a ferret looking for a place with open minded people. I'm tired of living in the outskirts of the bible belt. Tired of being told I'm going to hell, of homophobia and racisim. I tire of concrete and grey skies and trudging through 5 feet of snow to get to school.

Is your town the place I'm searching for?

(thanks for reading this and thanks for any tips/suggestions!)

Recenlty, Nike released a statment saying their support of gay marriage. They've been reciving hundreds of e-mails from conservatives about it. Nike, which is the only Fortune 500 company on Oregon, is also the only Fortune 500 company to support gay marriage. They said this in light of the November election when 55% of Oregonians said that their state shouldn't shouldn't legailize gay marriage.

Yay Nike! You support the three couse as well as gay marriage!
