The second time I've lived on a street named Porter
I finally have an apartment!! It has a blue door!
And red floors and a big bay window in the living room!
And another one in the bedroom!
And a red clawfoot tub!!!
So I gave up looking for a roommate and just got a one-bedroom. I answered at least 100 craigslist roommate ads and looked at 23 of those. Most of them I didn't like and the ones I did like picked someone else.
Here send me postcards and mix CDs:
024 SW Porter St
Portland, OR 97201
That zero in the address is very important. This street has a "zero" block. 24 Porter St. is a block away. Google and Mapquest don't understand this and I actually missed my initial viewing of the apartment because I was sitting in front of the wrong place. That's so weird. Also weird about this place is that it's in a part of town where highways and big roads have been cut through, so alot of the streets don't connect. I actually haven't been able to figure out how to drive into the neighborhood without taking an illegal right turn (which google and mapquest also don't realize is illegal).
But I am always fine with quirky things... and I'm not homeless anymore!
