Evolve or Die

This was my first daffodil although I’ve got a few more since I took this photo. I had to crouch down and I was in a hurry so it’s not a great shot.

WHEW! I didn’t win the billboard contest.

I have a whole bunch of stuff to post about (trip to Seattle, Timbers game) but I haven’t had time to prepare the accompanying photos so this is a quick space-filler post.

I know I always bitch and moan about how much stuff I have sitting around, waiting to be read but I’m always on the lookout for something good to read.

At one point we got the New Yorker and I loved it, except that it comes every week and I have to go through the whole thing. Either it took up most of my weekly reading time OR it piled up and caused me anxiety about how it piled up. I’m sure there are numerous posts about that in the archives.

I was reading the fiction online until recently it seemed like whatever I wanted to read was locked up. Then I thought, I want to support publishing, maybe I can get a subscription so I can just read stuff online.

Bikes, Downtown Portland near library.

You cannot. You can only get a print subscription and when you do it online you are signed up for automatic renewal unless you notify them two months ahead of time that you don’t want to renew. Also you get a stupid free bag. Anyone out there in need of another free bag? Our coat tree is almost collapsing under the weight of all the free bags we have at the office. I won’t even get started on all the free bags we have at home.

How hard is it to come up with an electronic subscription option?

Maybe I already have a free one with my library card. I’ll have to check on that.
