So, I had my briefcase stolen out of the back of a friend's car in the Hollywood district (in the parking lot across from the moon and sixpence to be exact), and wondered if anyone has found it.
It's a black Saddlebag type, kind of cheap. Some things that were in it were my checkbook, a scarf, a pair of leather (black) gloves, a CD player, a digital camera, a purple coffee mug, a really small bible - couple other things.
Anyways, if anyone spots it, I would appreciate it returned to me. I can't offer a reward, other than maybe a beer or a cup of coffee, but you will have my eternal gratitude.
This is for you guys who watch wrestling regularly.
Apparently during my weeklong stint of not having cable tv I missed something.
Is Eddie Guerrero really dead? Or did he just stop wrestling?
And if he is dead, what the hell happened? This is what happens when I don't get the cable bill paid, my favorite people on tv DIE! First it was Jerry Orbach, now Eddie? I'm cursed. Cursed.
Someone please tell me what's going on.
Alright, ive been here for 2 weeks, and ive seen many sushi places, BUT what i would like to know is this...
Are there any sushi places within walking distance(i dont drive and my roomate who does drive wont go with me) from 33rd and Powell that you enjoy, that will not poison me.
something not too expensive would be great seeing as im low on money and wont get a decent check for another 2 weeks.
if you have any suggestions on what to order from said place, that would help too..
My car is turning over but not starting. It really doesn't sound like the battery. I'm not particularly car savvy so I need a second professional opinion. Previously, I've taken my car to Affordable Tire and Automotive on SE 10th? and Hawethorne. They've been very honest with me for some major engine stuff in the past but they've also slowly raised their rates to something I can no longer afford. I trust the work that they do and I'm sure I'm paying for that trust, but right now, it's just not possible to pay that much.
So, do you have any places you'd reccommend as honest and the lower end of affordable? I'd prefer SE pdx, and if it matters, I drive a '95 mercury sable wagon (sexy, I know).
Never let Slim WIN, people!
Seeing as my girlfriend and I won't be having Thanksgiving with our respective families. I am wondering how we are going to spend our wonderful 4 day weekend. Any ideas?

Have you thought about who will take care of you if become disabled? This seminar will help answer some of those questions. Advocating for yourself. These are just a few of the topics to be discussed.
I do apologize if this is so on-topic as to be redundant, but as a non-Portland native and a sporadic damnportlanders watcher... is there a website that will map out bike routes? It would be fabulous if one of you lovelies showed me how avoid the highways when I start biking from N. Albina to PSU as I'm pretty sure it's not legal to use highways on a cycle. Or is it? This city is the easiest ever to navigate, but Oregon is a bit different than Washington. Thanks muchly.
I'm looking for a place to buy some things in bulk, specifically:
And I can't go to Costco.
I'm thinking of Winco, but I never shop there, so I don't know what they have.
I was just thinking about this today and was wondering why the area around the Galleria Max stop always reeks of urine? Its not just a few times, but EVERY time I get off the max at that stop there is an overwhealming stink of urine! So tell me, is it an undergroud sewer making the smell? or just the bums marking their territory??
It just smells......weird.
Sometimes Portland has the weirdest smells, like just lastnight i was walking in the warehouse district and smelled the odor of hops being cooked for beer making. That area used to smell like that ALL the time, but now since all of the brewereys are being forced out by sleek metal condo's it rarely smells like hops anymore.
the smell of hops beats out the stinky urine smell any day.
has anyone here ever grown mung beans before? i'm on my first attempt and now it's day three and for some reason some of the beans have turned a light pink... is it mold or are they supposed to do that? the sprout part growing out of the bean isn't pink... just the bean itself. i don't think i overwatered them... i'm just really confused :(
I have made it back to florida, and plan to attack my sink with everything i have at my disposal!
Last night i took it apart. there are now pieces all over my kitchen. In hindsight it would have been a good idea to number or take a picture of how everything goes together.
Didn't see a way to open the garbage disposal... pondering a big heavy metal mallet....
hmmm... maybe i should just give in and call the office? NO NEVER!!!
So the pipes were clogged all the way down to the trap. The lovely garbage disposal is a nice solid block. I read somewhere that rubbing alcohol might dissolve the wax, and i plan on going to target and purchasing some tonight. The other option is to heat the garbage disposal in the oven and see if the wax will melt that way... somehow i think that might be a bad idea... the plastic casing and cord and all.
I've been told to take pictures, but i seem to have misplaced my camera...
What's this about the ol' streetcar (that's "ol'" in its literal sense, not the casual sense) not running for the past three weekends? Where's it been? Also, anyone see that van they're turning into a hamster in the garage off NW 16th(ish) and Lovejoy? The hell?... I got nothin. I tried.
If anyone on here does work for a community organization that does work in the Boise-Eliot neighborhood, I'd love to interview you for a school project. It could be via email, in person, or on the phone, but sometime within the next few days.
I'm specifically looking for someone who works with Housing Our Families (don't know if this is still in existence) and/or Albina Community Development Corporation. Neither of them seem to have a website. Hmph!
Oh, you can reach me via email at dharmabum at livejournal dot com, or just leave a comment here.
My son is turning 6 in January and I was hoping some of you had ideas for places to have the party. Anywhere in the Portland Metro area. Something other than Chuck E Cheese..
If so, post what you have and your price to any entry in my journal.
So, how did the X-Files end? I tried Googling it. Couldn't find anything.
In the hey-day, in an interview, Chris Carter said that Scully and Mulder would never get together and the show would end with Samantha being returned. We all know those two things never panned out ... or so I heard. I gave up after they moved the filming to LA, and watched half-heartedly (like watching a best friend destroy themselves) as the show just got worse, and worse, and worse.... So painful when you compare to the voodoo chicken plant episode. The redneck mobile home park. Gone. All gone.
Ahem. OK. So, how did it end?
Has anyone been to Urban Fondue (in NW) for Happy Hour? How was it?
I already looked on citysearch and didn't find much info.
I will be moving back home to the Portland area which means I'm losing my walking partner. I love to walk, but I'm too lazy to go by myself. Is there anyone near North Portland that would be interested in walking with me? I hope to start walking near the beginning of December.
I am an intermediate skier and have been having problems/issues with my skiing boots. I feel like I am not
getting any better now because of it. I would like to see an expert in this field, someone who knows and specifics in skiing boots. What I am looking for is a name recommended who I should go see (with contact info
if possible), or a recommended place, that would be great. I just need to find someone who knows what he/she is doing so I can get the right equipment to make my skiing a much more comfort. Thanks!
I am going to switch to learn how to snowboard, I thought I'd have your opinion on this. What is the best mountain to start practicing on in the Mt.Hood area—Timberline, Meadows, Cooper Spur or SkiBowl?
Just out of curiousity, any of you know ASL or are Deaf?
