Does anybody know of a guy (or company) that fixes older appliances here in Portland? I've got a classic 1950's vintage Frigidaire refrigerator that needs some service, and simply calling somebody who will tell me "buy a new fridge" isn't an option.
ok dper's ... if you haven't been watching this show, just keep on walking. if you have ... i have a theory, which my gf thinks is completely nuts, and so i've decided to put it out into the general public.
it is this: they are all cylons.
Anyone done this Claimant Reemployment thing before?
And for anyone that doesnt know what FMU is...

Just an impromptu poll...
How many pillows on your bed?
Do you sleep with all of them?
How many end up on the floor during the night?
Me 4, GF 3
And may I add that none of these pillows are "decorative". Have never understood the addition of decorative pillows on a piece of furniture nobody sees...unless invited...only to remove them when said piece of furniture is used.
Unfortunately, it's following some very unsavory business practices. Everyone hired two weeks after me (it's a call center, so that's a lotta people) doing the same exact thing as the rest of us is going to make more than anyone else there.
People have been there over a year and aren't even making as much as the new-hires. What'ya think I should do about it, besides get a new job? (which is already in the works)...
Are there any donation points in Downtown where I can take them? I really haven't the time and energy to lug all of them out to the 'burbs where I've seen drop-off locations for Salvation Army etc.
Thanks for your help!
LAKE OSWEGO -- Chants by fans at a weekend basketball game between Lake Oswego and Lincoln high schools have led Lake Oswego to order apologies to its visitors.
As Lincoln senior Omar Leary stepped to the free throw line a crowd of Lake Oswego High School students began chanting, "You can't read!" When Leary attempted another free throw, students yelled in unison, "Sixth-year senior!"
Leary, who is 18, is one of five black starters on Lincoln's team. All the starters at Lake Oswego High are white.
Lincoln students shouted back, "You are racist!" and "That's racist!"
Principal Bruce Plato called in every student suspected of participating for questioning and a discussion about racial sensitivity.
Several students were ordered to write letters of apology to Lincoln High School.
Anyone have any idea of the name of the store between Hawthorne and Division on 20th or so in the little square?
Thanks for the help!
Long story short, I was in a car accident in 2000 in a car I purchased one month prior, the car was totalled, I financed more than it was worth,, there was a purchased warranty for $1500 that was requested to be refunded to the loan company, I received a settlement less than the toal by about $600. Months later, I get a collection notice (first notice since settlement was received) asking for $2400. I called the loan company, they REFUSED to give me a line item breakdown to show me where that information was coming from, I told them to shove it because it was my right to have that info, they still refused, I said good day. I receive about 1-2 letters per year from this company with fluctuating balances.
Fast forward to now. I have poor credit tht is getting better. I inquire about some accounts through the credit bureau. Loan company has sent account to collection agency. I call collection agency requesting info. I'm civil, I tell them what my dispute is, they continually argue with me about the amount, I tell them I know it's my right to have the breakdown and to please send it to me. The lady becomes agitated and refuses to let me finish any sentences and keeps interrupting me. I hang up, call back, talk to the supervisor, still trying to be calm. SHE says SURE! I'll send you this info, but then you'll have until March 14th to pay the $1000 settlement we are offering, otherwise you have to pay the balance in full of $2156.90 (another fluctuating amount!), by March 22nd, I see you have bad credit, yadayada, I won;t allow you to finish any sentences and I refuse to listen to anything you say, I am done discussing this with you, please have a good day. She also kept saying (you're contradicting yourself, you said you never received notifcation but you signed for a certified letter, why do you keep saying they never sent you anything? But I NEVER SAID THAT! I TOLD them I got the letter and called to ask for the breakdown and the company refused.
Ok. What is my recourse here? I would have paid the damn $600. What the hell!? HELP!
Keep it safe. Keep it secret.
(Seriously, go look. The day is much clearer than last time this happened.)
yep. i'm ready for a career in yellow journalism.
In a nutshell, she's getting worse into harder drugs, is growing a lot of pot, her boyfriend cheats on her and beats her, but she won't report him because she thinks the police will go after her for the pot- and she "loves" him. (Keep in mind, she's really "out there" from all the drug use for years). She's stopped taking care of herself- showering, preparing meals, wearing proper clothing, etc. She needs help.
I know she went to the ER for her latest injuries from him, and they DID take pictures of the injuries, but she wouldn't sign anything/talk to the police because she thinks they will "f**k her over" for the drugs. SHE is the only one who can legally report him for beating her, which is somewhat messed up since most women are too fearful (or lost in the drug culture) to report the abuse.
She CANNOT be convinced to move out/break up with him, she is so far off the edge, so talking to her is not an option. We would like to report her boyfriend for anything we can as well as get her into rehab. I'm wondering what we can do anonymously (so as to protect ourselves from the recorse of her meth-addicted friends, as well as her misguided anger).
And no, it isn't secretly me that has the problems pretending to talk about "a friend." Seriously. I really don't want any sarcastic/rude comments about this, it's serious to me. Thanks in advance.
EDIT: We have talked to several assault prevention hotlines and they haven't really been helpful- just told us to take her to the hospital, have HER call, etc.

/sigh All of portland needs to get out more.
its the first play by a Portlander named Karak Arnett.
its going to be put on towards the end of summer by Tribe Theatre. the show is going to combine different forms of media and there will be a dance party after each showing.
we're just in the starting phases of this production but I can send you a synopsis of the play via email, give you a better idea of what this is about.
if you're interested, comment here or email me at email@example.com.
I'd like to know a bit about yourself, your background in theatre (not a requirement), what you'd be interested in doing, etc.
About thirty seconds ago, I posted a comment in a friend's journal and was shocked silly to see that my default icon had been changed...to a darn scary cartoon icon that I never uploaded myself.
Then, I checked my info, and sure enough: my default icon has been erased, and the new scary one was in its place.
How does something like this happen? Explain all you LJ saavy folks. Because that's just creepy.
EDIT: I'm going to an AA meeting tonight. Thank you all for your responses.
My question is, should these events be taken into account when they calculate the total number of injuries sustained as a result of the blast? Am I elegible for FEMA funds? Will damnportlanders mistakenly take this post seriously? Does anybody else still want to jump on the I saw the St. Helen's blast bandwagon? Time's running out.
