Am I the only person having issues with hotmail tonight? I mean, I know all the cool people use g-mail, infact, I have a g-mail account, but I dont use it anymore, since I thought of the whole g-g-g-g-g-unit connection (which is really nowhere but in my head) and yeah, I've always used this same hotmail account, and tonight I cant get anywhere near it.

is it just me?
am I the only hotmail user anymore?
and do they hate me?


help. I need to know that I'm not alone. Not that I'll get any of your responses, since they're sent to that email account.

I'll just have to check my post to see if anyone says anything.

mommy make the bad man stop.

moving? need a place?

hope it's okay to post this here, we have an entire basement for rent (bedroom, place for computer desk, living room, etc), as well as an additional room upstairs up for rent.

my gf owns the house and the other roommates are moving on by the end of the month. they paid $400-$500 renting just the rooms.

rent is negotiable and there's a small sec deposit. anyone needing a place we live off I-5 one exit outside of North Portland over the Vancouver bridge.

NW Natural

Our gas company raised rates 18.4% last year.  It was announced this morning that they are increasing rates 15.2%. 

Over 33% increase in rates since September 2004. 

This is getting god damned ridiculous.

Belly Dancing at Baraka!

This Saturday I'm belly dancing at a neat new Moroccan restaurant called Baraka. It's located at SE 32nd and Division, the food is good and also cheap, and there's no cover.

I think the owners plan on having a belly dancer perform every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so if you can't make it this Saturday there are plenty of chances for you to catch somebody dancing there.

So yeah, if you're looking for something to do, you're more than welcome to come on down to my gig.

Baraka is a pretty small restaurant, so reservations might be a good idea.

Anyway, here are the details:

Belly dancing at 9 pm.

? for NW folks

Know of a coffee house or breakfast place off of Vaughn (23 or up) where we can meet before heading for a Sauvie Island hike? We don't want to deal with parking and crap too deep into the NW area. Thanks

Thankful Thursdays, Portland-Style! (belated by a day)

1. The upcoming 12th Annual Polish Festival this weekend, right on the Interstate MAX line.

2. The wonderful, cool fall weather.

3. More people wearing attractive black clothes during this time of the year (must be the Goth in me!)....

4. The return of the hearty, wholesome soup season (must remember to stop by Farmers' Market to pick up fresh corns for making corn chowder)....

5. Couple of interesting shows going on this evening: Madness at the Crystal Ballroom, and Empty Room/Written In Ashes/Human Genome Project at Tonic Lounge!

Queens of the Stone Age

Anyone know what the deal is with the Queens show on Sunday at Powell's? I've heard they're doing an acoustic set, but where in the hell are they going to play? They can't fit 200 or so in that coffee house, can they?

Sidekick II, Motorola A630

I want to buy one of these phones.

I've tried them both and I like them both but I don't want to pay a lot of money.

I'm a little bit afraid of ebay although they have the best deals on them.

and craigslist people seem to think a bit more of the phones than they really are worth...


have one you want to sell?

Kinda short notice, but would anyone like to buy a SINGLE ticket to Nine Inch Nails tomorrow? The seat is in Section 114 Row 0, and we're all pretty nice people.

It's only $55 - that's actually LESS than face value 'cause I'm not going to dick around with twenty cents.

C'mon, it'll be fun!

So I have a friend who eats Habaneros. As in the worlds hottest pepper. And he eats them whole.

He gave me a sliver of said pepper. I cried. My mouth burned for 45 minutes. And it was only a sliver.

I now have a pepper that was brought home from someone's work. But they don't know what the pepper is. All they were told is that it's hotter than a Habanero.

I was under the impression that Habaneros are the hottest. And as far as I can google without getting bored, I'm right.

Is this person crazy? Any idea what the pepper is?

Curious what DP thinks about this?

Burning Man 2005

The above is a photo taken from a stealth military fly-over on BM 2005. This was leaked to an associated press journalist from a BM sympathetic reservist at Fallon Air Force Base. The recent federal fall-out from a bust at a high profile Rave in Utah has caused increased military interest in Burning Man activities. Plans are in the works to have a reserve draft from local areas in order to arrest Burning Man attendees under the Rave Act.
