I'll be posting this to craigslist soon but I always like to check in with the local LJers first. Thanks in advance!
I need someplace downtown where I can sit down with a small group of people, have lunch that is $10 or less to eat, good food and/or good drinks, and not too far away from a max stop.
Please come through for me.

Oh and that Wal-mart that someone posted about a while back (the one on 82nd and King Road), well it's already there. I was over there today and saw a bunch of people wearing the blue Wal-mart vests (trainees, I'm guessing) and it looks as if it's going to open up in a couple weeks. Anyway, just thought I'd share to those people interested in what's going on around the oh-so-wonderful 82nd =)
What about heading South in the evening after getting out of work?
I'm relatively new to Portland, may have the opportunity to work in Freightliner's corporate office up/on/in Swan Island and live in the SW Hills part of Portland now. MapQuest says it's 9miles or so, but 9 miles in rush hour can take an entire hour in some places. I have no experience on I-5 during those hours! Those of you who do: please help me out here because this is could be a deciding factor!
so, a longshot. I can help out with gas and tell silly stories. or I can help with gas and shut the hell up. whatever.
For nearly as long as I've sought to leave this country on a walkabout across the world, I've been saving up for/dreaming a particular piece: a wraparound 1/2 sleeve tattoo on my right arm.
Understandably, this tattoo will not stand for anyone but the best as it embodies much of my past and many of my core philosophies.
It is for this reason that I am asking you DPers to point me in the right direction in Europe for the best artist(s), in your opinion. I'd prefer that advice be based on personal experience, but I won't discount opinions/gut-feelings/premonitory dreams/tea-leaves... Furthermore, I'm looking for an artist with a unique style, (with an asiatic touch?) and have been looking for nearly a decade. I've come close to perfect with a few, but I'd like to cull some input on Europe's ink community here...
Help a body out, and I'll show you my new skin when I return a permanently altered man.
Body & soul, I do believe :)
ps: LJ groups are also applicable, as the search function is exhausting in its imprecision.
A lot of you in Stumptown are doing home improvement projects. On behalf of our home improvement warehouses, contractors, specialty shops and hardware stores, dont be dickheads.

- It's a swing shift, 3:00 pm to 11:30:pm.
- It's right off the MAX Line, literally. Hawthorne Farm, you can see the warehouse from there, a five minute walk into the building, a one minute walk onto the property.
- Wear whatever you want, it's a warehouse! Who're you trying to impress?
- You'll be trained (eventually) on a forklift, stock picker, and electric pallette jack. If you don't want to drive those (oh come on, it's kinda fun), the manager is super nice and completley understands.
- There's an extensive safety program, so you won't be required to lift anything you don't feel comfortable lifting. In fact if you lift a box by yourself that's over 35 pounds, you're breaking a safety rule of some sort.
- The pay is $11.55 an hour, with lots of available (sometimes mandatory) overtime.
Apply through Kelly Services and ask for this position. It's a Material Specialist in the ODC (Oregon Distribution Centre) Department, say I'm your referral so I get a bonus, too. The name's Douglas Young :)
Job skills you'd be honing would include data entry, quality assurance (and if you mess up, there's like FIVE other people down the line to catch it, too, so no pressure), shipping and handling, and you DO get rewards/awards if you exceed, which look awesome on a resume.
Or both? :)
