And it surprised me a little because I haven't got a phishing e-Mail in a while. They kind of slowly went away. Time was, though, that I could expect a couple of phishing e-Mails every day. Nowadays, most of my spam falls into the "penny stock" category. There are not even many pharmaceuticals offered to me these days. Is this just my isp (aracnet) and their spam blocking software, or is this just the trend of the spam industry, such as it were?
And does anyone have a brief history of spam? Back when I first started getting lots of it, about eight years ago, most of it seemed to be pornographic. Only later did we have the era of mortgages, replica Rolex, the drugs, and phishing. And now we seem to be in the penny stock era. But that could just be me.
WHERE SHOULD I TAKE MY CAR?
i'm pretty sure it's something with the clutch and/or transmission, so it needs to go somewhere where they can deal with that. close in would be nice.
i'm a college girl, my girlfriend is a college girl, and we don't have dad's around to go in and be a guy presence, so where can we go where we won't get ripped off?
thank you in advance wise and nobel damnportlanders.
and for any of you on I-5 last night, thanks for not running me over!
I will be a resident of your fair city by mid-march.
I am a transfer student at PSU.
Any Vikings out there?
I look forward to the change of scenery.
Remember when I said I was going to do more online garage sale-ing? This is where the geeky computer books I promised ended up, but you'll have to dig through the whole list. There's a Linux something, and some programming things, and a whole lot of 1940s romances which were a legacy from my great-aunt.

Helpful suggestions would be great, as I am young, naive, and poor.

I know, it is not a fancy pants beer. But for some reason today, I miss it and I would like one.

ok, so I have a back that feels as if it has taken on a life of its own and is slowly trying to kill me, plus I have fibromyalgia. basically, I don't sleep well and I HURT. I want a mattress that gives more support, such as a Tempurpedic. sadly Tempurpedic wants too much money and I plan on upgrading to a bigger bed size within a few years. so spending thousands on a mattress makes no sense right now. does anyone know of a place in Portland to purchase mattresses (or mattress toppers) similar to a Tempurpedic or that are specifically for back/body pain?
in any case, it is a wonderful store and worth your time. if you are in need of a bicycle or have bicycle-related needs, I encourage you to head down to The Recyclery.
im looking for people who have nothing better to do then help me get things done. specifically i need people that will do dishes, carry my laundry downstairs, and occassionally lift heavy boxes or something. also looking for people with a car that want to drive me places like the store and help me carry groceries.
you will be rewarded with food and are welcome to sit around and watch movies with me too.
i know this sounds insane, yet ive had people doing this stuff for me for years. im just low on willing participants right now.
I'm curious though to find out your guys' opinions of living alone, or with roommates, let me know, the bad, the good, and the ugly! This will help me out a lot! :)
Need a bed frame for Cali-King size bed ??
I just replaced the frame with a platform bed... and if anyone else needs one, I'm willing to part with it.
I'll give it away for FREE... but it'd be cool to at least have a conversation or get a drink out of it.
It is a sturdy frame... has the nifty plastic rollers that don't ruin your floor etc.
Uhm... it is a lovely shade of brown/black and if you get it cold enough - you can make your tongue stick to it.
