is anybody else here participating in National Novel Writing Month?
Hey everybody, I've been watching this community for a while and just now joined. I've been going downtown for the hey of it for about a year now, whenever I have the time and someone to go with me (damn overprotective parents). I love it down there-- the pidgeons, old man with the piccolo around 9th Street, meeting random people, and just the feel of P-Town, as you vetrans call it. :)
But for the time being, I have a favor to ask. I'm doing a project on the music of China and Japan, and I absolutely need some dried bamboo. I've asked people to pick some, they haven't done it yet, my mom got me a bamboo flute, but that doesn't do me any good at all, and I have 4 days left before my project is due. Is there anyplace in the Beaverton or Portland area (preferrably accessible on Tri-Met) I can buy good, thick, 1' long pieces of bamboo??
