does anyone know the
"Osbourne Green" joke?
I remember the punch line
"Osbourne Green? well, Iah'z born red"
but that's all I've got.
1) tell me the rest of the joke
2) tell a stupid joke from when you were a kid
Is there a place in town where I can get rid of used audio tapes? I'm considering doing a "music purge" and getting rid of some of the tapes I don't listen to any more, or have replaced with copies on CD. Any suggestions?
i just moved to portland. i'm living on the PSU campus, and i'm wondering...what's the nearest place (within walking distance, preferrably) that i could find a pet store? i would like to purchase a goldfish so's i'm not as lonely in this big ol' place.
hey guys! i'm from ohio and i'm coming to portland for a visit on monday. i have a question for you guys. how old do you have to be to get into bars in oregon? in ohio, you have to be 18, but they mark you with an X or something so you can't drink. but in pennsylvania (which is like ten minutes away from where i live), you have to be 21 to get in. the reason that i'm asking is that i'm bringing a friend who is only 19.
i should also mention that you guys will probably be subjected to a million more questions from me in the next few days. sorry to bug you with such ridiculous stuff, it's just that i have never been to portland and i want the trip to be as smooth/fun as possible. thanks guys!
Throughout a 12 hour period (7 am - 7 pm) I drink about 40 ounces.
It's usually less on the weekends.
Where in Portland can I get ahold of "funny" computer keys with stuff like "damn it" , "panic"...etc...on them?
I checked places on Hawthorne that used to have them back in the day and I had no luck...
Is Doug Fir all non-smoking, or just the restaurant part?
Portland/Vancouver area stores where I can buy organic ground beef?
Hey, I keep hearing stories about the Gorge being polluted. Is there a better, equally high point to head to away from the lights of the city to see the Perseids tonight that has less ambient smog?
Edit: I know there's a star party at Rooster Rock with telescopes and whatnot. I"m thinking more like, lying in a random field somewhere :)
You would think that with all of the Volvos out here I would be able to find a mechanic pretty easiy, however that is not the case. So I need you Damn Portlanders! I am trying to find a place that deals specifically with older Volvos, the kind of place that won't try to screw me around because I am a girl. I do know plenty about my car it is just that the work that needs to be done isn't that easy with my meager amount of tools out here.
So, yes, again - good specifically Volvo mechanic somewhere in this city? Thanks!
I know some of you have been looking for a job.. so I got one for ya. I'm leaving tomorrow, so it's pretty much open immediately. I work at Pacific Gate Works, their website is here: wwww.pacificgateworks.com. they are located in sherwood, about 30 minutes drive from southwest portland. It's a pretty small company, they only have two employees (about to hire a third for office work), with two cofounders who help out as well. everyone's easy going.. you can take breaks, days off if you need to, etc. I'm leaving to college in arizona, so that's why I'm not going to be working there (for the school year at least).
The job itself is pretty much going to be a bit of everything, from packaging gates to shipping, to gluing together boards, to drilling holes. easy stuff, but it can get slightly boring and repetitive. if ya got an Ipod or something similar, should be easier to get through the slow stuff. It is a dirty job, you will probably come home with a few spots of sawdust on you from sawing pieces, or maybe occasional spots of woodglue. in other words, (after the interview of course) I wouldn't wear your good shirt to work. if you get hired, you'll probably start off parttime for a week or two until everyone gets used to you; if they like you you could then get switched to full time! The pay's pretty decent, it's above minimum wage, at least. (and I have very little prior woodworking experience, and am just 19 yrs old. your milage may vary accordingly).
just email or call the number to the website I posted above, and good luck! if ya got any more questions feel free to post a comment.
Hey guys, I had to turn down a rather nice data entry job because of the weird hours and my scary neighborhood.... so my temp agency asked if I know anyone else who can type like I do and can work swing shift.... so I told them I'd post it online. :)
Anyway, the requirements are the ability to type 70wpm+, the shift is 3-11pm, the pay is $9.25 with a shift differential to bring you up to 35 hours per week. The company is great... located at 3rd and Washington.... the temp agency has also been really good to me. The job *is* long term, evaluate to hire.
So if anyone's interested, call Express Personnel at (503) 221-1336, and *please* tell them Elizabeth Peyton referred you. I think I get some kinda bonus for referring people.
here's a question for you guys: what is the worst thing about living in portland? i know that the vast majority of you love the city, but there has to be something that really gets on your nerves.
i have a big bag of toiletries (motel shampoo, stuff people gave me that i didn't want, etc.) that i'd like to donate to a homeless shelter or somewhere like that where people who don't have access to stuff like that could use it. i'm moving in a few days so i need to get rid of it ASAP. where can i take it? i live in SW portland, so please don't suggest gresham or something, i don't have time to get out very far. thanks!
why didn't anyone tell me the violent femmes are playing at the 'bite of oregon' thing tomorrow?
can anybody tell me of a clinic in the tigard/beaveron area that accepts same day appointments that isn't as much as going to a hospital, I am paying out of pocket and probably need an xray or two and i don't want to owe my first born. thank you so much for any info =)
Does anyone know of any Thai/Japanese/Chinese/anything-but-pizza restaurants on the eastside that deliver this late?
