Well since everybody's got the movie quote bug, what about authors? I'll start with Palahniuk...
"The difference between suicide and martyrdom is press coverage."
"I embrace my own festering diseased corruption"
"What would Jesus NOT do?"
Is there something out there in internet land that is similar to craigslist?
Alright People, I am at work here and I have been talking with my friend in Penang. She really seems to sterotype America even though shes been here on buisness many times. For example she calls me Heavy Metal because I have alot of tattoo's, but I dont listen to metal. She also thinks everyone either eats at Mcdonalds and is fat, or is a total health crazed maniac.
So I leave you this question while I go to look like I am busy with paperwork. What do you think people from other countries see America as?
E: Lets not turn this into a shit on GW thread, we all know the world hates him.
and time for some fresh new blogs...
I'm sitting here at work with a raging headache and a dead body...
looking eagerly for some fresh flamers...
come on...winter_in_asia? splitpeasoup? lokidecat? something funny or flameworthy please?
Hello there everybody, well i just found out that this exists, this community is bad ass!!! I have been writing in LJ since last November so its nice to see you all!!
I moved to P-Town in April of 98 from St.Petersburg/Tampa Florida where i was raised and lived for about 20 years. I absolutly LOVE portland and as much as i want to check out other places to live, i have a real hard time with the thought of leaving; PORTLAND and/or OREGON IS where its at. This place has so so many things that no other states have!!!
Well anyway, just thought i'd say "HIGH", i mean "HI"!!! (lol) :)
Does any one have or know anyone with a rottweiler named "Monkey"? Specifically, in 2001, in SE. Please Let me know.
Does any one know a Terry or Jesse Rutledge, and how to get a hold of them?
Hi All~ I need a place for my cats to stay, from tonight or tomorrow until the 18th...Their names are Seven and Curious, they're two wonderful, sweet, affectionate adults, who need little more than a full food & waterbowl. They can stay inside or outside, are healthy, well-adjusted, and just plain awesome! I'll provide their food and can give you twenty bucks for the favor. I'll be in Portland so if you don't want the hassle of feeding them but have a place for them to stay I can come by. Either way. Thanks!
do any of y'all know where i can find gentian violet? i would prefer somewhere southeast but i'll drive wherever for the sake of my vag.
I need a new icon picture, as much as I like looking at myself constantly it is indeed time for a change. Is there somewhere in Livejournal land where I can peruse the goods?
Yes, I'm using you all once more for my homework!
Since I moved to Portland, I've heard several times from several people that Portland is a big test market. That is, companies like to test out their products here to see how well they would sell on a national-type scale.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to find jack diddly squat about it.
So I'm asking you: What products do you remember being tested in the area? Are there any websites that list what products are being tested where at the moment? Do you know someone in the marketing industry who might be a good source for me?
And doesn't someone in this community work for a company that does market research? I'd love to talk to you!
okay, so after waiting for years for the inspiration to come to me, i finally know what i want tattoed on my body for the rest of my life.
but athough i have some aspects worked out in excruciating detail in my head, others are very fuzzy. also, i can't draw. so what i want to know is, is it common practice for tattoo artists to do consultations? i'd like to sit down with someone (possibly a series of someones) and say, here's what i want, here's what i'm not sure about, what would you do with this?
what can i expect to pay for this sort of thing? (edit: this isn't meant as another question i'd ask the artists, but rather, i'm asking y'all how much one generally pays for a consultation.)
i've looked through the various DP tattoo posts for artist recommendations, but if you know someone who's particularly good at figuring out what i want even though i can't draw it, and/or good with realistic work/shading, please let me know.
I'm going to be commuting soon (next week-ish) from Gateway/Rockwood to Camas/Vancouver.
Is it better to :
a) Get on 84 westbound at 181st and then take 205 N?
b) Get on 205 northbound on Glisan?
Assume I'm about midway between Gateway and 181st, and this is during rush hour.
Honestly. Is Powell's EVER hiring? Is it always an inside deal or something?
Anyone know if the QFC on Burnside has an aluminum can machine type thingy?
Hey everyone, I've got a question. Do you work or live in the Laurelhurst Neighborhood? If so, would you be up for an interview either in-person or through e-mail or phone?
You see, I'm in a class at PSU called Understanding Communities. Our project for this term is to explore Portland by learning about specific neighborhoods. I've been assigned to the Laurelhurst neighborhood. As part of this assignment each person must interview three people that work or live in the neighborhood. If you're interested in taking a few minutes to help a person out, I can explain it in more detail.
Any takers? Feel free to comment or e-mail me at email@example.com
Thanks in advance!

I have a friend who is coming to Portland and looking for a place to stay. She has provided me with a list of places she is looking at, and asking for feedback.

hey there dp-ers. so, after getting a cell phone and realizing i rarely use my landline, i've decided it's time to get rid of the landline and save some $. problem is that i have my landline and dsl through qwest and they will raise my dsl by almost $15 a month (to about $45) if i cancel my landline. do you know any companies that have service in portland that have reliable dsl that are cheap(er)?
along this line, does anyone use skype? it seems like a great deal for making international calls and stuff. where can you get a VOIP phone and about how much do they cost?
okay, that's it. thanks in advance!
Does anyone know of a decently (cheapish) vet. I think my cat might have worms and I really want to take her to a vet to get it checked out but I have no idea where I should go. Or does anyone know if there are medications you can buy at stores like Petco and Petsmart that would deworm my cat? Any information would be appreciated.
