to the person who yelled:
"jenny craig dropout!!!" at us hot chickies downtown tonight
uh, DUHHHHH! way to state the obvious
we're proud of it. so there ;)
i saw viva glam burlesque tonight, along with some amazing spoken word/slam poetry. fucking awesome.
My husband and I have decided, pretty spontaneously, to move to Portland from Santa Cruz before our lease here is up on June 30th, and are looking for recommendations for a good, knowledgable exotics vet. We're moving to the Beaverton/Aloha area, so vets in that area would be best, but we're willing to drive pretty far to get the best care possible for our chinchilla, two bunnies, three rats, and king snake.
Thanks for your help!
Does anyone know if there are any communities for guys just starting to begin that slow decline that is known as getting old?
Anyone know of a place that buys used VHS tapes around here?
Does anyone know a market where you can get chinese pork buns/sweet bean buns in bulk or for cheap?
Does anyone know how much it would cost to take my cat to the vet?
She has been scratching herself so badly that she's bleeding and scabby. I think she needs one of those lampshade things for her head. She's has a neurological disorder so I don't think she can feel pain and I don't think she's going to stop scratching herself. We don't have a ton of money but something needs to be done. Does anyone have an extra cat head lampshade thing? What are those things called anyway?
EDIT: What do you guys think of moving it to a different NIGHT instead of a different place? I've got a class tomorrow night so even if I announce it at a diff place, I won't be there. But if we moved it to Wednesday night-- just for this month --we could go to the usual place at the usual time without a problem. Thoughts on that (even if you already commented)?
So I called McMenamins, and apparently tomorrow night they have some kind of banquet going on. They are therefore not allowed to set aside any tables for us.
Now, it's possible that only a few of us will actually even show up and we could deal with one or two smaller tables.
OR it's possible that we won't even get those.
OR it's possible that a bunch of us will show up.
So my question is: should we seek out another location to hold meetup at? I actually got an e-mail a month or so ago from a woman who was running a Big Town Hero in the downtown area who offered us their party/meeting room, so we could check that out. Or we could look at other places entirely, or we could just go to McMenamins and hope for the best.
Has anyone been to the Wind River Hot Springs (the private land ones. . .not the Carson Hot Springs resort) lately? is the Wind River covering up the hot springs? Is there any way to find out how high the river is? Google searches turned up pages merely saying some of the pools will be covered up if the water is high, but no numbers . . .
Hi there :-)
I have a couple of somewhat sensible, and somewhat silly, moving-to-Portland questions here :-) If anyone out there could be of any help at all, that would be simply marvellous of you all!
1 - Are there to anybody's knowledge, any Portland bike/biking livejournal communities? I ride my bike a lot, and have some questions pertaining to this! (I don't have a search facility on my livejournal account, or else i would find out myself, i promise!) Snuffle.
2 - Does Portland have any cute little places for insomniacs? (aka, is there little a 24-hour cafe in the city where you can hangout with a book or your homework or whatnot at 3.30am?)
Thankyou all so kindly. Kirsty x
So... anyone have any ideas where a good place is to study that does not include libraries and my own room. If the place is open till late at night, that would rock too! Yay for midterms!
So where am I and two friends going to eat and drink tonight? It will be after 8, too late for happy hour. Cheap cocktails and tasty spicy food, and no cover? And it must be someplace that is not totally empty on a Monday night, otherwise we will feel very unhip and at our age that is a serious matter.
damnportlanders, i'm on my third day of being a non-smoker. i think this is the 5th time around. words of support or wisdom please?! i'm going crazy!
EDIT: Thanks so much guys, you are magnificent! I really appreciate it.

Does anyone know of a place in Portland or surrounding areas where I can get fleischkuekle? My partner's birthday is on Thursday and he says that's all he wants (he's a Midwesterner who hasn't had it since he moved here; apparently it's just that good). I checked the usual suspects (Rheinlander, Gustav's) but so far have come up empty. Thanks in advance!
has anyone lost a set of keys? i found some on the curb at the corner of sw 3rd and clay today. they had a blue bottle cap opener attached to them.
i have one ticket to m. ward at the aladdin this saturday that im not going to be able to use because i have conflicting plans that evening. Anyone want to buy? only $13.00!
Saturday April 30th 9:00pm
anyone interested could send money order via mail or we could meet-up somewhere in the great pdx to make an exchange.
Are there any decent furniture stores in the Beaverton/Hillsboro area that carry a bunch of platform or futon beds?
If you're into walking long walks just to get little patches n' stuff like I am, I'm walking the 12k from Providence Portland Medical Center (805 NE Glisan) tomorrow at 9am. The walk box is all the way in the back, but you can ask for it at the info desk and they'll point the way. I'll be wearing a poncho and a hat, generally looking like an insane vagabond. I know I know, but a man's gotta have his entertainment. Anyone is welcome to join me in my jaunt.
Tell me three things you would do with $33 Trillion dollars.
I want to know how your creative minds work.
Okay look. Stop thinking of the "world economy and the impact of this money on it." It's a game. Sheesh.
And this IS $33,000,000,000,000 we're talking about here. Which is roughly 500 times Bill Gates' worth at the HEIGHT of his wealth.
It can't happen, so try to think OUTSIDE the box for a change. Think big, think odd, c'mon!
Among things I'd do:
Buy a license to kill / get out of jail free card from the government.
Turn Iowa into one big prison (ala George Carlin's idea.)
On a whim, buy Google.com and shut it down.
i was just wondering if anyone knows of a good place to look for a queen-sized bed frame. i want a nice-ish wooden one (i think), but i'm on a budget and can't really afford a new one. i've been craigslisting it for about a month with no luck and have looked at pdxforsale too. is there anywhere else i should try? thanks!
Does anyone know a good pediatrician or pediatrician clinic that takes OHP? We live in Tigard and we don't drive but we do have medical transportation services through OHP at least for a little while. I'd like to avoid treking all the way to NE Portland all the same.
