I've heard only great things about Netflix, but nothing about Blockbuster. Blockbuster has a lot of stuff listed in their FAQs about availability and demand for titles causing delays in getting your selections to you (up to 6 weeks in some cases), and also lists that it takes 1-3 days for a movie to reach you, whereas Netflix customers get their movies in about a day.
What are people's experiences with Blockbuster Online? Is Netflix worth the extra bit a month and lack of in-store coupons?
We had a vegan friend there. While we were waiting to be seated, he asked if they had any vegan dishes, he was told two of them could be altered for a vegan. He wanted to make sure when the waitress got there, he asks her, and this is the reply he got.
"I don't have time to tell you what's on our menu. Everything vegetarian we have is on there, you just need to read it. I'll come back for your order."
She walks to one of the couples in our party, the girl has dropped her jaw and everyone is looking at the waitress in disbelief. The waitress starts asking if the couple is ready to order, they are in such shock no words come out of their mouths. She starts TAPPING ON THE ONE GIRLS SHOULDER "Hello? Are you ready to order?!"
My sister said "what a bitch" and I told her we were leaving. We got up and walked out.
I've gotten some shoddy service there before. But this takes the cake. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it IS the server's JOB to answer questions about the menu, yes?
Normally I'd just pile the stuff up and let nature do its work but I'm fairly short on actual garden space here and would prefer to have a bin somewhere.
I'm thinking about taking a Big Step and purchasing some real estate. But I don't quite know where, yet. I'm looking for some advice. So if you have a minute, want to throw some my way?
1) If you were a first-time homebuyer, where in or around Portland would you buy a home, and why?
2) Same question as above, but with the following additional factoids:
- you work downtown and would prefer to commute via bike or public transportation
- you have no kids and likely won't for at least 5 years
- you think a covered front porch is really neat
- you like spacious rooms
- you prefer older construction
- your budget is somewhere between $200-300K
Peas and spank you.
I need to find a relatively non-pain, non-judging, non- evil dentist in the beaverton/tanasbourne area specifically. Can anyone drop me some names?
I just went through the activation process online and the whole thing seemed quite like a scam to me.
Besides the fact that it appears to be designed to get students to spend money they don't have
there were also far too many prompts to get me to sign on for the 'refund' benefits and the bank account.
But the letter that came with it said that without activating and using the card
I wouldn't be allowed access to the library, fitness center, health services, etc.
Is this kind of thing normal for a university?
What a load of crap.
Due to angleburn1's Superb idea to get some singles together; last night i met; angleburn1, lokidecat, vyus, mariotta, & oddiophile. Also there was one other person there but i dont know his screen name and we didnt actually get a chance to rap (please respond, so i can say hi and put a "name" to the face...i think your real name was Johnny (sp?)). But he seemed hella cool too.
So we all met at Berbati's Pan to hang out and talk about life in the big "single" city. It was really cool, very interesting getting to know people online and then meet them in real life. I am still kinda new to the community and the experience of meeting people online...and then in "real life", but i say...it is great. It is cool to get to know people online (where "walls" seem to be down), to make connections...to meet like-minded people without any preconceived judgements based on the ole "book-cover". Anywho it was cool and i would love to do it again! And next time i will bring my friend Hermi, she is a great friend of mine and has been for a few years now, she is hella cool and i talked to her all about it this morning!
YAY for Damnportlanders, the best damn community!!!NOTE: I added you all to my friends list, YAY!!
i looked around and found the other portland parenting communities a little well... slow.
seriously, checkout those babes. we've got some hot moms here...
503-281-1270 and as for me, Melissa. I'll be in the office until 8 pm.
75 bucks :D :D

Who wants to go to Dantes tonight?
I know some girls that'll be dancing tonight, so I will definitely be there. Show starts at 11pm, but I will be there a little earlier. So if anyone wants to meet up for some drinks (I am going alone), that'd be really cool. I may be shy, but I'm not weird :)
We are located near the Hollywood District. Where is the nearest recycling and landfills for public usage? (websites would be useful with location and public hours)
not for the "pro-war"/"pro-bush" type of person.
Marrakesh on NW 21st and Northrup is looking for a weekend hostess.
The tips are really really good-if you're a student or have a day job, this is just evenings.
My manager asked me to look for somebody, but nobody I know can do it. He probably wouldn't like me posting this on the internet...but I thought if somebody just HAPPENED to walk in after 5:00 on a weekday, they would PROBABLY GET HIRED ON THE SPOT.
If one were in Portland, Oregon, and not Marion, Illinois, or New York, New York, where would one buy these cupcakes?
And god help you if you send me to a supermarket that serves that weirdo supermarket frosting. For every shortening-based frosting I find... I shall kill you.
Well kids, I am going to say this - If you are a waiter/waitress at a bar, I do not care what kind of bar it is, do not - ESPECIALLY when someone might hear you (and feel that they are being slighted) - tell your other patrons "Sometimes white trash comes in here"
I am white. I am trashy (I was not trashed). I am not white trash. None of the people I was with were white trash either. The waitresses comment was completely out of line.
Miss Waitress, I hope you enjoyed our conspicious lack of tipping. I hope you enjoyed the note I left for you under my Lemon Drop - do not fear, I will not be visiting your establishment again. There are plenty of other bars to visit, and I am positive I will be on the recieving end of less of an attitutde problem (infact, something tells me that I will recieve a warm welcome at many of the white-trash bars, where they are more happy that a paying customer is visiting and it is more likely that they will be leaving a tip), when I go to a white-trash bar.
If I was a restraunt critic, I would rate "Hobos" as a "F-". Honestly - the drink was foul. I have had much better Lemon Drops at McMinnamins for meetups (Perhaps that was part of her plot to get rid of the white trash?). The attitude was negative. Sure the facilitys are attractive, but that does not cover for the service.
thanks in advance
Thanks in advance,
This one was deffinitely unavoidable....
any ideas other than craigslist?
Thank you so much!! :)
