i'm writing a novel for NaNoWriMo (www.nanowrimo.org) and it's set in portland. my main character needs a few live chickens, at least 3 or 4 but more like 6 would be great. a rooster would be wonderful as well even though they're illegal in the city. where would you go to get said chickens?
the tired novelist
I remember seeing not too long ago I think in WW an ad sayin that there was going to be a live performance of some type in the portland area depicting the lion the witch and the wardrobe. I am hopnig I have no missed this event, but I cannot seem to find mention of it anywhwere either. So damn portlanders help out a cs lewis fan......any info appreciated.
I can't wait for the movie, it is gonna be cool from the reviews I have read.
So who did I piss off on here badly enough to warrant an entire journal dedicated to kicking me out? The journal also lists my home address (stupid because we are moving within a month) and a phone number (which is not mine, honest!). Elaborate enough to go all the way and register an email - "Slimem88isafag@hotmail.com"
I'm amazed that someone could be that obsessed with me. I am just an LJer. Someone couldn't handle talking with me and decided to go through all this.
Troll, troll, troll.
Everyone loves drama, but this is bullshit. I don't need personal info plastered all over LJ.
Not like I expect this post to root out the dude...but did I really piss someone off here THAT much?
From KATU... "A proposal spurred by Governor Kulongoski and embraced by the teachers' union has been rejected by Oregon Trail school board members. The proposal would have put teachers back in classrooms while contract details were worked out. The next round of talks is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15 at 1:00 p.m."
I'm not taking sides on this issue or anything but WTF with Tuesday the 15th? What about "tomorrow morning at 8"? These parents are supposed to keep their kids in day care for weeks at a time? This is like four weeks now. You can't negotiate more than once or twice a week? How about starting at 9AM on Tuesday?
This kind of stuff annoys me. Again, it's not one side of the other, it's the impact that these sorts of drawn-out processes will have on the students and parents. Who's reimbursing them for child-care expenses while schools are closed? Who's going to make up for weeks of lost classroom time for the kids?
It's won't be the frickin' Union. Or the School Board. Oh, that's right - it'll be nobody.
Did you like it?
I can't find any online reviews of it...
My husband dalas and I just moved into town after a drive across the country from Brooklyn, NY. Portland is amazing. I'm from Vancouver BC originally, and this town is like an alternate-universte vancouver or something, I love it. Anyway, I have a few questions about where to find some stuff.
-Drive in movie theatres? Are there any in/near town?
-Rollerskating rinks? I heard about the one with the giant wurlitzer organ, it sounds sweet.
-Good, cheap sushi? This was super abundant in Vancouver, but impossible in NYC.
-Photobooths? Traditional, not the stickerclub ones.
-Any crafty get-togethers or similar? I make a lot of junk, and it'd be neat to meet some other people who are into that.
-Any places where you can pay to use a darkroom or something? I haven't done any darkroom work in a billion years, but it'd be nice to get into it again.
-Places for cheap craft supplies?
alright. awesome. thanks!
Do you have a snow suit w/ mittens attatched for a 3T sized boy?
My son refuses to wear gloves, and then freaks out when his fingers freeze. *duhhhh*
I'll pay a fair price for the item.
Okay, I miss the snow but I can't afford to actually go snowboarding at Mt. Hood. (I could probably afford the tickets but my fiance and I would both have to buy all the gear that we'd probably only use once a year, so no). Can you just drive up to the mountain and just pull over and play in the snow? Is there a special place everyone goes to play? I've seen on the news people just playing in the snow. I want to go!!
Is anyone else going to the Dame Darcy/Lisa Carver show at Dunes on Saturday?
Who here volunteers locally on a regular basis. Where do you volunteer? What is it like?
Wow, I've got the afternoon to play, and I've arranged a date on short notice! Is there anything fun and interesting going on downtown today or anywhere for that matter that is easy on the wallet? We're open to anything and I'd love to impress this girl! thank you!
Does anyone know of a place where I could sell knitted stuff? Other than Saturday Market.
The trouble is that I have very little money, and I'd like to MAKE more rather than lose it by spending it all on yarn AND somewhere to sell. I don't want to have to charge a ridiculous amount (and people aren't likely to spend that much anyway).
I'm looking to buy a tiny bit of space from someone at Saturday Market.
-I need about an 2' by 2' spot for a small table.
-My product is secret right now, but would fit in with many different things. It is basically a potted plant, but condensed and simple. I could show you, if you were interested.
-I could work out some sort of rent situation, or pay someone a percentage of the profits. They are each the same size and price, so it would be very simple.
I am looking for something for just around the holidays. Does anyone know of anybody that might be interested? Is there another forum where I could post this?
Found a cell phone around the corner from Tao of Tea on Belmont. It is locked and I think the keypad got wet so I can't dial out to try and figure out the owner, but if you can give me a description of the phone (make, model, and service provider) I'll be glad to return it to you if you can unlock it (ie have the password). Otherwise I'll probably take it to a store for the provider on Monday and let them deal with it.
inner SE that is...say Division to Glisan...50th to 10th...I used to go the B.O.G. for the $2 special- any other place have good beer for $2- $2.50
does any one have an extra death cab for cutie ticket ?
Across Burnside from the N Park Blocks there's kind of a little park-like place with two old run-down brick buildings on it.
Does anyone know what's in those buildings?
