On a related subject to an earlier post... (Only reposted because I can safely say I'm not looking for 'Women-Only' Martial arts classes ;))
Been trying to find a good martial arts center for a while. Been leaning towards Krav Maga, but I don't actually have any experience with the center here. Anyone have any experience in this area?
Does anyone know of any women-only Aikido, or other martial arts classes in the area?
Looking for a hair salon in SW or Tigard that isn't overwhelmingly snooty or yuppie-ish, but does a good job dying colors and blending them in tastefully (like green). I'm also a fairly un-girly first-timer at any kind of salon and need some genuine, helpful assistance negotiating what I want. So, patient employees, sensible atmosphere, decent pricing, and a 'do suitable for a working girl. Possibly also open today?
Can anyone recommend a good pet grooming place in the area. Specifically for cats?
Winter is almost upon us, and I know that many of you like I, probably suffer from S.A.D. as I'm not a native North Westener.
Now granted, I LOVE the weather here, I love the rain, but irregardless I'm going to suffer some blue days, as well as I hear a lot of people and internet acquaintances from here to Canada suffer.
I've taken steps to alleviate the depression which seem to work well, but I want to hear what you do to combat the Seasonal Blues.
[ I really don't want suggestions of the light box, it's something I think is hoaky even though other people swear by it, but if you use it and it works well for you, then please say so. ]
I still have this October Bus pass to get rid of! Everyone who said they may have wanted it flaked on me.
It is an Adult 1 and 2 zone Trimet pass.
I can bring it to you today whereever you may be. I would like $40, but I am accepting ANY offers now, as the best one I got so far is NOTHING. Make an offer. It could be yours. If I can't sell if for anything, I am giving it to my neighbor.
I am so sorry for asking this question, it has been gone over many times. I really should learn to write these things down.
Please don't kill me out of annoyance.
Where can one find a functional (b&w or color, doesn't matter) photo booth?
I apologize again because I have seen this question posed so many times.
Where is a nice/romantic place to watch a sunrise around Portland?
Where can I get keys made downtown Portland?
It is absolutely not allowed to use the subject matter in a personal journal to bash an opinion in a DamnPortlander's post, no matter whether they are the poster or a commenter. There will be immediate banishment until further notice; based upon your apology to person attacked, and sincere promise to withstand such immediate urges in the future. If it is observed that behavior to involve a user's personal journal content as mockery, then a second lasting banishment will be in effect.
The rain and darkness are setting in, and it's time to move my workouts indoors. I'm in SE Portland near Laurelhurst Park. Last winter I joined the Hollywood 24 Hour Fitness. I might go back based on convenient location, but it was pricey and always so crowded when I went, and I don't like being rushed or waiting for equipment. This year I'd like to find a gym that's nearby, open early, and low-cost. I'd prefer a pool, but I could do without.Hollywood 24-Hour Fitness
The options I've found so far are:
Mall 205 24-Hour Fitness
Cascade Athletic Club at 92nd and Stark
Bally Total Fitness near Mall 205
Anyone else in the area have insight on membership prices, all around goodness, etc.? What other clubs are nearby?
I'm currently at school in Ohio [Oberlin College!] and was watching the Food Network and on the show "The Secret Life of...", which features histories and facts about various foods, they talked about Portland, Voodoo Donut and their donut eating contest.
I love it when P-town is on TV. It's kind of sad that I have yet to have a Voodoo Donut donut.
Another thing to do when I go home...
Can anybody point me in the direction of a place on the SW side of town that sells medical scrubs fairly cheap? Thanks in advance =)
Where can I buy a lot of blue body paint? Preferably near SW or downtown...
I purchased an evening parking tag for PCC, but it turns out I won't be able to use it. If you can, give me an offer. I'd like to get at least $10 for it, I paid $18.
and I'm still awake.
Anyone out there?
