Will knit for (fill in the blank)

So, I've been a knitter fifteen years now, and I'm pretty handy with the yarn and knitting needles. Crochet hooks too. And I was wondering if any of you were interested in perhaps commissioning me with a project? The original plan was to round out the ol' paycheck a bit, but I'd definitely do it for trade as well, or whatever barter system you'd like to invent.

If you'd like to see some samples of my work, I would be happy to provide them. I can do just about any garment or blanket you'd want; I also have access to software that can aid me with design (especially where socks are concerned...and there's nothing better than handknit socks). In addition, if my work sells the yarn for the project, the materials cost will be much much cheaper. Like, 40% cheaper.

In conclusion, I'm just feeling around and seeing if anyone's interested. So if you are, leave me a comment or send me an e-mail (fetalpig86@yahoo.com). Thanks!

Anyone have any leads on cheap(er) limousines for hire?
How about the 'burners out there? Anyone got a school bus they can transport ten people in around town?

This is for an employee function, but I'm paying, so something LESS than $75/hour would be outfreakinstanding.

Chicago tickets 2 for 1!

If anyone is jonesing to see Chicago when it comes to town, find someone who is a member of the KINK listeners community to buy them for you (or join yourself!) They often have deals for members of the group, and they have an opportunity now to get two for the price of one tickets by registering with your name (I'm guessing they check it with KINK?) and a key word. Just thought I'd make ya'll aware.

The photo-radar machines are out in full-force this morning.
They've even got one at the end of our street today.

Is it quota time?

Oh, and evidently "stay with the flow of traffic" does not apply to photoradar! We think we got nailed this morning going 5 mph over the limit doing a detour onto Halsey when getting around an accident on the freeway - and the thing flashed like 5 times, so everyone else got nailed too! Damn!

a message from the layout designer

tags are being implemented into the layout.
the idea is that all members can add tags to entries. they can only add tags that have been previously defined.
only maintainers can define new tags or delete tags from entries.
i will be adding a list of all defined tags to the sidebar.

Asking a guy out on a second date?

I went out with this fabulous guy last night and would like to return the favor by asking him out on a date. I am typically a bit old-fashioned but would like to catch his attention.

What are some good ideas for places to take a handsome man who works in personal health training field?

I considered the Rock Gym, but I don't know if I could do that and I would hate to fall down in front of him on a second date.

Any suggestions?

So i left my cell phone on the #75 bus on the way to work yesterday, and after calling the L&F today, it was never turned in. i was wondering if anyone has seen a blue T*Mobile phone somewhere along the #75 route sitting on the seat towards the back of the bus. If not, does anyone have an old cell phone they don't use anymore? i'm broke beyond recognition and that was my only form of contact besides INTARWEB.

I have a problem... well it's less of a problem really and more like a nasty ear infection, and it's driving me nuts. Does anyone know of any natural (ie cheap cause I have no insurance) ways to get rid of this? Or does anyone work at a doctors office and want to swipe me some antibiotics? J/k about that last one, but seriously I'm getting desperate. I'm about to jam a screwdriver in there to get it all over with. HELP PLEASE!!!!


I have this pair of shoes that I had bought about a year and a half ago. The uppers and soles are just fine but the lining is coming apart.

I really like them and would like to get them fixed. Where can I find a cobbler - a person who mends shoes? They were very common in my native country, but I don't think I've ever seen one in the US. Do they even exist here?

(Not pie, I know where to find that.)

Something just popped in my head so I thought I'd ask.

I know a lot of Portlanders are Portland snobby, so for those of you diehards, if you HAD to pick one, where would you rather live? Hillsboro, Gresham, or Vancouver?

Ferret-gate is over.

The ferret mystery is solved. A girl from my block saw my little flyers and came to claim the ferret, who as it turns out is deaf AND blind. poor little guy.

anyway, thanks for all the adoption offers (here and craigslist).

eeeeeeearly a.m. grub

Taking my folks to PDX at some insane hour of the morning tomorrow.

Since I'll be wide awake by the time I'm done dropping them off (like 4:30 - 5 am), I'll wanna grab me some breakfast.

(1) Who's open at this time of day, and (2) are they any good?

(Please, no suggestions of Denny's or Sharis or similar chain-types!)

Thanks gang!

Met up.

OMG FRIST POST!!1!!1one!

Good times, good times. Thanks to... um. Y'all. Yeah. Thanks, y'all!

Also, name tags were a good idea. Thanks to them, I can feel guilty for forgetting who most of you were almost immediately. Awesome!

Also, for the record, that venue == superduper.

Old Timey

Okay, so where can I get a collection of radio shows like the ones playing on this streaming radio station* on CD? The Shadow, The Whistler, Suspense, etc. etc. on CDs (and not casettes like I've seen everywhere).

*Right click it - save target/link as, open with Winamp or iTunes.

Hey I wasnt there, I am never at them because I have to work. I know its lame and I cant take the night off to go to them. So tell me who else misses the meet up regularly due to other things like a job or someother distraction like xbox or a bed.

Good evening my dear chaps.
You might remember me as Ben, or perhaps by my SN orangemountain, or as part of the massage love train happening over on the side of the table closest to the window...
Regardless, it was my first meetup with y'all damn fine folks and I must say it was a honor to meet a bunch of you in person and I hope you guys finished that double voddy I had to abandon... it would be a shame to have it go to waste.

With that... sweet dreams!

I'm a non-smoker (never smoked) yet I love the smell of cigarettes (on people, in clubs, on myself after being at bars, etc). Am I the last unicorn? Or are there other people who feel this way?
