I need somewhere either downtown (SW side preferably) or in the Hillsdale area. I do have a car and am not afraid to bus somewhere, but I'd rather stick to somewhere near where I frequently am!
I need somewhere not horribly expensive, but I'm willing to pay.
Specifically - I want to play some old Nintendo games on my computer.
I looked up Emulators, and up came a site called MAME. But I can't figure it out. I is dumb. I don't know which one to download, how to run it, where the games are, etc.
You intelligent Portlanders SURELY know how, don't you? Of course you do. You should tell me how.
Oh, and I'll be at the next meetup. Oh yes I will. There were...issues...as to why my girl and I weren't there this time. But we will rock your cocks (and other genitalia) next time. Heh!
In Harry Potter:
What is the name of Ron Weasley's new pet? Not Scabbers, but his new pet.
this morning, there were no traffic lights at this intersection. at all.
kudos to the considerate and patient people that inched their way to work today. it was a 20 car pile up just waiting to happen. i had to laugh through the whole thing, because it was that terrifying.
Anyone have a bike that they hardly or never use? I'm going for a long shot and have about 50-70.00 that I can probably pinch out for one in decent condition. It will mostly be used to ride around town, not really trails yet.
Where are all the Cell Towers?
Beyond that, I'll ask my question out of sight of everybody's eyes

Lifetimes ago, I went to a bakery (different city/state) that made these most delicious things called "rum balls", but they weren't golf-ball sized things, but more soft-ball sized.
Monstrous. Rich, chocolate-y goodness. Some with chopped nuts, some without. Soaked in rum.
I'm craving. Craving like a crack whore.
Is there a bakery/café that does these? At this point, I will even settle for the golf-ball-sized version, but somebody out there, please tell me they exist out here!
Thank you so much!
I'm conducting a survey for my Masters program, over which I will be writing a paper for two classes. So time is of the essence!
If you are interested in filling out a survey, and/or participating in a round table discussion regarding homework and parental involvement, please respond or email me with your contact information at email@example.com.
Round Table Discussion is tentatively slated to take place August 1, at 6pm. Snacks and beverages provided, and if enough parents need it, childcare may also be provided. Location TBA, but most likely will be in NE Portland.
If you are only interested in filling out the survey, please email me your contact info, and I will mail it out.
Thanks in advance for all those willing to participate - my grade thanks you! :)
Thought you all would like to know.
Thanks to everyone who responded, especially the people who suggested Blades - I was there this morning and I am MUCH happier now. They were awesome. :D
aaaaand.. go! :) TIA.
Someone recently provided a link to a great Portland (or Northwest) photoblog, but I'll be diggley-danged if I can find it.
If you know of any, I'd love to check them out. Nature, urban, people, whatev (including candid shots from last night, bellybalt?). Please list them here!
To start, I'll pimp one I know of ... at dontbrandme.
Peas and spank you.
EDIT: the specific one I was looking for is PortlandGround (thanks ameliabee!) ... but I'm still curious if anyone has any others.
I don't frown upon being homeless as long as you learned something from it.
If you lived out of your car where did you do it? Was it safe from the cops?
Where did you get food from if you didn't have food stamps?
How did you manage to do laundry? Keep clean? Get gas money?
If you want go ahead and e-mail me privately please do so: shivasanhita at livejournal dot com
Every bit of information I gather will be helpful.

I think I might be a "winner" at 94. Felony Flats representin.
quick update, I got my cell phone in the mail today!
Thank you Zach Hubbard, you are my gaurdian angel :)
My apartment is air conditioned, and the front yard is shaded, so the first time I really feel the heat is when I get in the car (which is not shaded). Where I work, it is quite breezy and, if it's really 90-something degrees here, I don't feel it. But on campus, it's sweltering. It's got to be several degrees higher there than at work.
If where I work and where I go to school were different distances from water, that would explain the difference, but they're both pretty much the same distance from rivers.
I'm usually very sensitive to heat (70 degrees is usually too hot for me). When I moved up here last summer, I hated leaving my nice cool apartment to go out in the oppressive heat. But this summer, I feel like it's not bothering me as much.
I wonder why that is.
back in florida, i went to a very cool $5 haircut place. any similar suggestions would be helpful!
thank you so much!
we're also thinking of doing a few personal training sessions just to start out so that we both feel like we're properly using the machines instead of being the dolts we think we look like while on them and to make sure that we're working the problem areas we want to fix. has anyone here had a personal trainer? what was your experience like? how much dough did you have to lay down and do you think it was worth it?
any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!!
EDIT: because rat_bastird kindly reminded me that "the east side" is a large area...currently we live around 122nd and division, so i'd say somewhere within about 60 blocks of that would be ideal as it looks like my mother isn't too keen on the idea of somewhere over 15 minutes away from our house.
anywayz r any of u saved and if so what portland comunites r u in. i cant find any
thx u guys
I need a belt. And not just any kind of belt. I need like....a 61 inch long belt. Anyone know where I could get a black or brown leather super long belt? I don't need one with a buckle, even just a place where I could get a big-ol strip of leather would do great.
Even just a leather store. Where do you get leather in portland? I'm making my own shoes...and I need leather.
Look at that, I figured it out. Here's the real question:
Where are the leather stores? Like "I would like 3 yards of leather" or however you say that in leather-ese.
Dammit, the suns getting me all confuzzled.
EDIT: Just to note, /I/ am not 61 inches around. I just need leather that long :D thanks :D
EDIT2: So some really troll-y guy in AIM just messaged me to tell me that I'm fat cause I need a 61 inch belt. I blame..... realm_of_libby7 :D
I am dying.
It's over 95 degrees in my apartment right now. I have no AC. The fans blow hot air.
And I don't know what point this makes, but I just thought I'd whine a little bit and feel sorry for myself since I'm sitting on the SURFACE OF THE SUN!
starting next week!!! Stark Naked Pizza (between 28th and 29th on Stark) will start delivering, and it will be open until 4am on the weekends!!!
I don't like meth and hour long showers daily in my house. My water bill was $220 for chrissakes.
Somebody help? thx.
A friend of mine found a sketchbook on a parking meter somewhere downtown. It says "Jay Moren(o)" on the spine, and on the front there is a drawing of a hand. Inside are quite a few well drawn sketches. There's also a Well's Fargo pamphlet in it about identity theft.
Does anyone know Jay Moreno?!
If so, he will probably want this back. I can meet downtown. I'll probably want to verify that it's really his though, because I don't want to be meeting up with some creep bag douche face who'll touch me in my bathing suit areas.
BTW, anyone interested in a double sized bed with box spring (no frame) or an elliptical machine? Let me know!
Do you know of any good places to donate said items? NOT Goodwill, NOT Salvation Army. I would prefer either a free store or a women's shelter.
PS: I decided not to do a post with graphics, just because.
