1. The Thriftway in Lake Grove. I can't believe it closed today. forever. Yikes.
2. Zarov at the Shell station in Lake Oswego. He rocks. He remembers my kids names long after we've been there.
3. Growers Outlet in NE Portland. Fabulous produce and super inexpensive. (I canned seven quarts of pickles today - wah-hoo)
Where is a good, inexpensive yoga studio on in the Southeast? That's good for a super beginner? I want to do yoga with people who can't touch their toes either.
I'm going on a date tonight in the 23d area.
Is the crowd going to make me want to punch myself?
alrighty. Im watching Vh1's top 40 awesomely bad songs ever, and the reference "dirty sanchez" came up. Am i spelling it right? lol. I have no clue what it is. Educate me!
Or explain a dirty phrase of your choice(with some delicacy if possible) ;)
(delete if needed, though uh, dirty lingo seemed portland related. he hee)
im bored, anyone awake?
don't steal my bike
my dog will bite you
go punch yourself on 23rd
pigs they tend to wiggle
when they walk
whats for lunch?
hey guys, Happy Saturday! :D
So.. plans are finalized.. I'm moving to Phoenix October 12. This means I have a ton of things to get rid of before I move, so! Aside from Craigslist and the newspaper.. where is the best place to sell stuff? I have a running-almost-perfectly ugly 1980 Honda Accord to be rid of.. a brand new 5-disk DVD Player and some other pretty nice things to be rid of. How about pawn shops.. do they pay decently enough for stuff?
could anyone out there possibly recommend a neat place in portland to undertake some two-sided photocopying? somewhere that's not too pricey, and where the staff are knowledgeable (i am a bit silly with machines). preferably inner SE, NE, or downtown would be wonderful
thankyou all so much for any help!
I had gathered up a bunch of close/personal supplies to donate to the Katrina victims coming to Portland. Now that they are not coming anymore I am not sure where to donate this stuff. I checked the Red Cross website but it seems to be all about monetary donations (Which I unfortunately can not afford to do). So.. Damn Portlanders... Where would YOU donate these things?
1) Clothes / Shoes
2) Personal care products (Shampoo/soap/feminine products, etc)
3) Misc sheets (twin sized) **This one I am not sure if any charity would want. If I don't find one I would be happy to share them with someone from the DP community**
Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Have a nice weekend :)
Has anyone made an indoor planter of herbs (ie, basil, parsely, cilantro, etc) for the winter? How did it turn out? Any tips?
Once again I must call on the infinate (sp?) wisdom of all of you Portlanders. I need to find out where some free or low cost health care clinics are that aren't restricted to 1 day a week. My son has been sick for over a week now but we don't have insurance and if it isn't better today I need to take him in. We live in SE Portland so anything on this side would be great. Thanks so much.
saw this on craigslist today in the free section, anybody know of someone/where that could help???

How does a girl find a good guy around here?
Edit: Now that my mailbox is filled with DP nonsense, I meant Portland, not the internets. Is the internet all you people think about? :D
P.S. You kids take everything so literally! Less serious, more fun, please.
Hey there! Neil Diamond is coming to Portland and I am so sad that I will not be able to see him - I have to take a last minute trip out of town. I need to sell my tickets to the show at face value (tickets $42.50, "convenience" charge $7.50, shipping & handling $5.00 - per ticket) for a total of $110. i will consider all offers. these are upper level, good seats with what should be an amazing view of an amazing performer (seats: Sec 329, Row B, Seats 1&2). let me know if you're interested.
where in town can one find used drum machines/sequencers/synths etc. that aren't fifteen million dollars? craigslist and trade-up aren't whetting my appetite - am i missing out or is that it?
not too long ago, my doggie and i were peering out the window of our building and the building across the street, old town lofts, has like 4 fire trucks outside and they start breakin out the hose! i see a fireman in someone's room on the 4/5th floor and he rips out the screen window. i even saw some guy peering out his window with a giant slr sticking out. aren't you suppose to be evacuating sir?! everyone is evacuated outside and so obie and i go for a little walk to see things from down below. there doesn't appear to be any smoke or fire of any sort. maybe some dimwit just left their stove on. well it was exciting for a second, not that someone's house on fire is exciting. i was just bored for the time being. does anyone here live in those nice lofts? may i visit your balcony..?
i'm almost never bored or have this much time to sit down and think about how bored i am. the adhd is definitely kicking in. no canvas, don't feel like riding right now, agsfb cd and joseph ledoux book is in my pseudicle as we speak...sigh.
so...yeah...how's the weather?
My phone is very ill. Probably my fault, for flushing it down the toilet. It hisses at me and the lights flicker, but nothing comes up, and I can hear nothing.
My question, then, is this:
I get off work at eight. I would like to purchase a replacement phone (Nokia 3390, or something I could transfer the Smart Card into.) this evening, if possible, as not to lose touch with my aquaintences. I work up in NW, and I am heading home to SE. What's my best bet, kids? Lloyd Center? Goodwill? Something else?
Lemme know. You have an hour and a half, starting...now.
Anything totally awesome going on tonight? There was talk of checking out DJ Spooky until I realized that the tickets were more expensive than 8 bitches on a bitch boat. Then Atlas at Halocene was an option, but while I quite like the music, I'm not hip on the yuppie dance club crowd ala skinny blond chicks doing the white-girl-look-at-me-I-have-no-rhythm-but-aren't-I-sexy dance.
I need an excellent, non-flaky, professional tree service (pruning and removal) and an exterior house painter before the rain sets in.
Who have you used, who do you love and who would you stay away from?
And before you say it, yes, I know how to find them on Craigslist, etc... I would like some experiential input.
FYI - I'm in the Hillsboro/Beaverton area.
Okay.. who's setting off the fireworks we can hear all the way up here in Vancouver? hehe It sounds outrageous.
Last night, I TOUCHED a piece of the World Trade Center...
it was surreal
my airbrush died
(read that as, got run over by a car)
and i need a cheap one quick....
where can i get a *cheap* one???
Hello fellow Portlanders!
Does anyone know a good place to get passport photos taken? Preferably in the downtown area?
