I signed up to be at the Milwauke Craft Bazar at the Milwaukie High School, and I don't quite think they were ready for me :)
I didn't exactly realize it was a "craft" and not a basic "holiday" bazar. I showed up with all my lotions, massage oil, nothing offensive due to the fact it was a fundraiser for the dance team. The lady that set it all up was really awesome though :) We laughed about it, and I actually got quite a few people that stopped by and took home a catalog :)
Anway, it's still going on today, till' 5 I think. I'm raffling off a free nights stay at the Garden Inn Hilton, so if anyone wants to stop by :) There's great holiday items there too. Plus, mention you read this on livejournal, I'll give you a free $5.00 gift certificate :)
thanks to all of you for your suggestions on where to eat in salem with my gf's parents.
we were actually spared the trip to salem this time, but i've got a few of them in mind for any future trips.
I'm passing along info about a yoga workshop for larger women. I've been taking the class at the Yoga Project with Karen, and really enjoy it.

The tap water in my apartment tastes the way an attic smells. Is anyone else having this problem? If yes, does it happen often?
hello~ i have bags & bags of fabric scraps & remnants i need to give away by tomorrow if anyone is interested...there are six bags, take them all.... fun fabrics & textures, vintage prints.... let me know, i'll deliver!
Ok so I'm having a hard time finding something and have about given up all hope. But, I figure I should at least ask here just in case. I'm trying to find a bottle of Makers Mark Gold Label Bourbon and I cant find it anywhere in Oregon. The only place Ive seen a bottle was in Las Vegas and Im not about to drive back there just for a christmas present. So has anyone seen any out there? Not the red, Im looking for the Gold Label specifically. Any help is apreciated.
If park your vehicle at a densely populated apartment complex, then leave it behind while you're out all night long, do us the favor of turning your overly-sensitive car alarm off.
I will greatly enjoy egging you the next time you park directly outside my bedroom window.

Does anyone know of any local drugstores, grocery stores, etc. that sell menthol tissues? I know Kleenex makes them, but I haven't been able to figure out where to find them locally. I used to have a small packet that I got with something I mail ordered from Asia, and now that I'm out, I miss them... It's not really worth importing them or online ordering from the US. I'd much rather be cheap and get them locally if I can.
Thanks so much!
Anyone got a Santa suit they want to sell me for cheap? Or at least know where I can buy one for less than what a costume store would charge?
I'm hoping this will be a good place to get feedback. If not, slap me :)
How many of you have used Craigslist? Anyone had any major problems with anything or anyone on there. Tomorrow I'm going to meet someone in a downtown coffeeshop to make a sale, but I want to make sure no one's had any really bad things happen.
I don't mean like, OMG I'm gonna get kidnapped. I realize the risks of meeting someone I've never met, I'm just curious what your rate of success is with Craigslist? More so, in-person sales.
Ups. Downs. I thought this post might be a bit useful.
What are the best neighborhoods/places (besides the obvious Peacock Ln) in the Portland to Beaverton area to go view Christmas lights? Any particular neighborhood that puts up some great displays? I'm jonesin' to be cheesy and take a stroll with some hot chocolate :)
I am looking for someone with a truck or SUV who can help me move either this Tuesday or Thursday. I am moving from NE PDX to Beaverton, and am licenseless, so I can't rent a vehicle. :-/
All my furniture is moved, I just have small items and boxes. I figure it shouldn't be more than one or two loads, max. I am more than willing to do all the hauling, I just need a vehicle and driver.
I can pay you 50 bucks for your time.
My back is killing me and my neck is all out of wack, which means bum Bum BUM... it's time for a trip to the chiropractor. But my normal chiropractor is all the way across town, and I don't exactly wish to make the hour tri-met trip. I'm not all that loyal to him. So, here is my question:
Do you know of any good chiropractors within a 30 minute bus trip from downtown Portland? Perhaps the kind who don't make you feel like you are in a doctor's office? And if you know that Blue Cross insurance works with them, well, all the better.
Seriously DP, I owe you.
According to KGW, I-84 is shutdown, in both directions, through the Gorge due to a pretty good sized landslide.
Looks like its definitely Winter for sure. Let the Gorge Closures begin!
