Ouch. No busses or subways in NYC. It'll be like Los Angeles on the eastern seaboard.
Wow. Thank God the local transit union and TriMet get along, isn't it? On the other hand, a transit strike would be a good demonstration on just how much difference transit makes in Portland to the conservatives if it did happen here.
I found out I have to work on Xmas eve 9am-1pm at the wonderful Hot Topic in Lloyd Center.
My family is in Eugene.
I was wondering if anyone would be doing any traveling south around this time (xmas eve) and could help me get from Point A (Portland) to Point B (Eugene).
Any time after 1pm on Xmas Eve would be PERFECT for me.
I can provide:
-Gas Money ($10?)
-My awesome Cd Collection to listen to on the way.
-Me just taking up space for the ride.
-CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!? haha.
so please. if you can do this.
email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
THANK YOU! AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
Ok, kind of a weird one guys. My company needs a vending service and I am having about the worst time in the world trying to get in touch with anyone at any agency. Do any of you work somewhere that has vending machines which are stocked and serviced by people you would recommend? Thanks in advance for any help!
DPers, yo. Where in this town can you find a good place to repair a zipper on a jacket?
Has the world gone crazy?
I wanted a Dell Pocket DJ for Christmas. Apparently Dell no longer makes them.
I know you wise DPers may not care about my materialistic wishes, but this just seems very strange to me. I just called Dell and asked them. The man said, "We can offer the DJ Ditty!" I don't want that piece of shit. I want an MP3 player, not a tiny piece of plastic that will hold 200 songs. I asked him why they stopped selling / making the Pocket DJ and Regular DJ and he said, "I don't have that information."
What's up? This is very peculiar to me. Why would a company stop selling an item that was highly profitable without letting anyone know?
Anybody have any experience with Northwest Tree Specialists?
It's office gastronomy time!
What foodstuffs are in your desk/cubicle/work area right now?

1 box Mrs Cubbison's Croutons (emergency calories, also good for soup)
1 bottle Chipotle hot sauce
1 bottle Sriracha hot sauce
1 bottle Gulden's brown mustard (liven up those Fred Meyer subs)
Taco Bell Fire Sauce packets
Does anyone live in the Imperial Arms on 14th street? I'm looking for a two bedroom to share, but they don't publish rent on the internet, of course. What's it like?
I wanted to send out a big "THANK YOU" to those of you who sent out money for presents for the guys from my group home. They're still not expecting any gifts, and they will be overjoyed when they see gifts with their names on them under the tree on Christmas eve.
If anyone is still interested in donating you can send me an email at email@example.com and I'll give you the info you need.
Honestly, I never expected such generosity. It's made me a little less jaded about the holidays. Thanks again!!!!!
