You'll know when they've finally run out of local celebrities to feature, by the time they get down the list to Mike Scheckla, the Portland Trail Blazer's mascot, "The Hippy Fan".
(from the Cambridge Dictionary of American Idioms Copyright)
set your sights (on doing something); also have your sights set (on doing something):
to decide what you want to get or achieve something
"I think they set their sights too high – they'll never find someone for the job who has all those skills." "Once she sets her sights on something, she won't stop until she gets it." "I hear she has her sights set on becoming a journalist."
(from the New Oxford American Dictionary)
a device on a gun that enables it to be aimed accurately.
1) Sites, not sights. As in gunsites, used for aiming.
2) I loved Monsters. As soon as Edwards introduced the metaphor, I feared cringeworthy heavy-handedness. Instead, I thought it was effective.
Can't wait. This fixes the main problem with Emmerich's version: it brings some scary with the awe.
I hesitate to tell you in this troublesome time, but that soup also contained gluten.
They could do a sketch entirely on this thread.
Alternatively: Do you expect everyone in Portland to know how to play bagpipes while unicyling? Cause it's arguably the most bagpiper-unicyclist-friendly city in the country. Seems like everyone here should conform or walk around wearing a sign that reads "I cannot provide any bagpipe/unicycle services - sorry for being so unPortland."
When are they going to do some sketches about the West side. Damn near every sketch is about the East side.
Respond with a request for a photo of her HUGE BALLS.
Most soups start with an animal based stock. Sorry, that is what soup is.
It would last if they had Portland writers to Portland shit up the real Portland way.
Hear hear! I can't stand it when chicken noodle soup has celery or carrots in it. If it says "chicken" "noodle" soup, it's only fair to assume there are no vegetables in it. Take care of it! For fairness!
The chicken were on an all vegetable diet thereby making them vegetarian chicken. Vegetarian-Chicken soup. What's not clear about that?
I love how adorably Portland this is. I,A is right, but it doesn't keep her/him from sounding petulant.
I heard that Danny Belrose is going to make another appearance this next season. That guy's awesome.
Vanessa Bayer is form Portland??? My crush on her just increased 1000%!!!!!
I'll bet two hours' worth of minimum wage that ROM only read the first part of Anon's rant before getting all sanctimonious. And let's not forget that plenty of people 'forced' to work on holidays are paid quite well -- are we all up in arms about ANYBODY having to work on the holidays, or just the ones that earn lower wages? At what rate of pay does one gain/lose the sympathies of people like ROM?
Plus, poorer people generally want/need to work as many hours as possible, no? For example, i lost out on about $100 because my employer closed shop on Thanksgiving (X-mas and New Year's are going to fuck me, too). That's a significant amount of money for me -- 25% of my weekly income. I'm betting that plenty of people who worked that day were quite glad to have been able to do so.
Also, F.Y.I.: Thanksgiving isn't the only day of the year that one can choose spend with their family.
Don't be a dick, Derek!
Four out of five cannibals recommend vegetarians for soup. They tend to make a much lighter broth. Vegans can be lacking in flavor, however. You have to compensate with quite a bit of salt.
