Okay, DP'ers - I am in need of some web-based puzzle games, but the ones on Yahoo! are bitching at me because I run Mozilla (and I am never going to run IE, ever, if I can help it).
Any good websites? I just want to play, damn it!!!!
Hahah. I just watched a segment on the news about Craigslist and they called it "THE LIST."
is there anywhere to get fried clams in this town... you know like a fried clam basket or sandwich or something... beach style... i don't feel like driving to the coast just b/c i'm jonesin'
Green thumb types (heaven knows, I'm not one), what would be your suggestion for a type of plant that would flourish in a very damp area?
I've been having fits of gardening, and behind the house there's a stretch of earth that's shaded and very wet. I don't think the flowers I'm planting elsewhere would flourish there, but I'd like to make use of the space. So any ideas for some sort of plant, edible or just attractive, that would grow best in a dark moist area?
Edit: Oh yeah...Portland Nursery. Just a short bike ride away. Hopped on, took off, promptly (five blocks later) got a flat. Decided, what the hey, and kept going. Figured I wouldn't pick up anything too heavy. Whaddyaknow, free potting soil day! Awesome! Picked up some fern bulbs (30 percent off), alyssum, and a small tray of impatiens.
Does anyone know what the huge police caravan riding down 405 was? There were something like 100 biker-cops and cursers, all with their sirens blaring at about 8 this morning.
Okay, so I got this e-mail from some company saying they wanted an interview, but I seem to have made the fatal mistake of deleting it with the other peices of spam I get. It was legit, that's not the question; the only thing I remember reading from the letter was that they were the #8 employer (I THINK that's what they said about themselves, #8 SOMETHING, employer sounded right) in Oregon according to The Oregonian. Anyone know where I can find this list? I didn't see it on OregonLive.
On Wednesday around 5pm there was something major going on over on Scholls Ferry Road. God, I'm horrible with streets, but it was right near 174th (??) or something. Sort of near Roy Rogers or Beef Bend or WHATEVER that street's called, heh. Uhh, yeah I get my streets mixed up, hi, I'm a loser. But it was on Scholls in that general area. Anyone know what it was? There were helicopters, news stations, police cars...
Then yesterday at the same place there was a car collision.
Any of you DPers make it out to Dante's to see Sleepytime Gorilla Museum last night? I did. They have been through Portland numerous times and every time I have missed them for one reason or another. Last night I resolved to attend. I have not dropped acid in at least a dozen years, but last night I could swear either 1) someone had dosed me or 2) I was having one hell of a flashback. It was just that fun, and weird.
Yo DamnPortlanders! My housemate just moved up here from California and she wants to eat at something (restaurant) that is so “Portland” – ideas? Help?
I recently bought a ring on Ebay, and I am really curious to know how much it's worth. Does anyone here know of a place in Portland (or near) where you can bring jewelry in and have someone knowledgable give you a price quote?
Also- where's the cheapest place to have a ring resized?
Does anyone know if you can bring Cameras into shows at the Roseland?
Does anyone remember a Singin' Cowboy who was on Channel 12 many years ago named Heck Harper?
He had an after school kids cartoon show, and in between cartoons he would bust out the geetar and serenade the live audience.
One of my old friends mentioned how we would watch Heck after school, and I wondered if he was still alive.
Does anyone know?
Open letter to everyone who keeps trying to rent Star Wars episodes 1 and 2:
The movies sucked the first time. They will not suck less now that you want to rent them to "catch up" for the third. Their suckage is the reason that we only carry one copy of them each and you can't rent them because EVERYONE else had the same crappy idea as you. This is not my fault so stop yelling at your friendly video store wage-slave.
