What’s your opinion of the phrase “keep Portland weird”? I’m not sure if it’s Eugene or Portland that should have this phrase

If you were selected to be on a reality TV show which one would it be?… I wish I could say the Voice but it would probably have to be Amazing Race

When I have a long weekend I… enjoy being a mom and traveling around Oregon

You’ve been given  an unexpected bonus of $1,000 cash.  What do you do with it?  Give it to OAHU okay okay, I’d probably take a trip to Las Vegas.
