My foodie friend and I are usually too poor to indulge our expensive tastes, but this Valentine's Day I want to send him a care package with a few expensive goodies. I was going to order from Amazon, but the shipping would cost as much as the items I'm purchasing, so I'm hoping to find them locally. Do any of you know where in Portland I can find truffles of the mushroom varietal? I'm also looking for a good balsamic vinegar and fleur de sel, but I think those things will be easier to find.
Thanks in advance.
It's terrible that someone was hurt last night on a bicycle. Does anyone find it ironic that there were two separate posts yesterday about bicyclists not following traffic laws? Perhaps it is the same person. I am glad they are doing okay but apparently a lot of people out there are not properly educated on bicycle laws.
Would it be weird to call back a place [where you applied for a job] back if they didn't leave a message?
[I missed their call during my morning shower. I googled the number and it was one of the places I applied to]
To the Motherfucker who Hit and Run My Partner in Our Car This Morning around 8:40 at NE 47th and Hancock:
You are an asshole. You are a vile piece of shit who is a shame to the human race. Thank god my partner is fine (so far). Thank god that you did not hit our transmission or some other vital piece of machinery, and that the damage sustained is (so far as he can tell) merely one car door. Thank god my partner was driving and not riding a bike, as he often does on that street as it has BIKE LANES, before you tried to cross without looking, or that there was not someone there who happened to be on a bike. I hope that you having to drive is due to some pressing life circumstances such as poverty, illness and desperation and not because you are too fucking lazy to take the bus or take responsibility for the consequences when you drive. It makes me sick that you could have hurt or potentially killed someone, yet you took off because you were more worried about your own consequences rather than stopping to see if the person you hit with your two ton death machine was OK. It makes me sick that you could have hit a bicyclist and done the same thing. I hope that the police put this shit on the news and that someone sees our paint on your fender and that you get caught by some "good samaritan". I hope you don't get caught because you pull this shit again and someone else gets hurt in the process.
Don't drive without a license, get fucking insurance. Asshole.
so i've never done the First Thursday art thing.
so what galleries do i go to? how's it work exactly? just wander around and check out the artists? free drinks? i know some of you are die-hards...so help!
edit: i know first thursday passed already.
I guess Anna Nicole isn't so outrageous anymore.
"Anna Nicole Smith dies after being found unconscious in her hotel room, a law enforcement source says."
sorry, not Portland related.
Bicyclists suck. Ok so I was driving home last night listening to my Limp Bizkit cd-rs and trying to eat some of this awesome Ciabatta burger I just got from Jack In The Box when some dumbass cyclist was riding on the side of the road. I LITERALLY HAD TO PUT BOTH MY HANDS ON THE STEERING WHEEL AND DIRECT MY CAR TWO FEET LEFT OF HIM JUST TO AVOID HITTING HIM! What a joke. Is this what this city is coming to? Having to actually pay attention to the road now? Portland is officially going to hell in a handbasket. My girlfriend can't even do her makeup in her car anymore because it's so annoying when these dumb cyclists are riding on the road - UH???? ROADS ARE FOR CARS! People should have to get a license to ride a bike. They do that for drivers, and that basically ensures that all drivers are very smart and responsible. But no, they'll let anyone ride a bike all over my Portland streets. Now I can't even drive home drunk from the bar (it's ONLY 3 blocks away) because some "innocent bicyclist" might be riding home from their job. The only job a cyclist has is staying out of the way of my Hyundai. I hate you cyclists. Especially you female cyclists, with your cute smile aimed back my way as I reluctantly let you change lanes in front of me. Why can't you resemble your counterpart, the female driver? Nothing says sexy like 300 extra lbs, playdough teeth and cheeto breath cruising at 30mph in a compact.
Jeeze. Portland is grumpy lately. That's what like.. 4 angry motorist posts this week so far?
Ok, here's my contribution:
MAN! I freaking HATE those stupid crumpbly sidewalks. Why you gotta be so stupid and crumbly, sidewalks? Huh? You're always trippin' me up and stuff.
Damned sidewalks. I hope you get covered in moss!
Well, I did something that could be either good or evil depending on how you look at it.
I helped someone with a monstrous SUV navigate out of a parking space at my usual parking lot.
Granted, I wanted the space when she left. But I'm wondering - did I do something good because I helped someone out, or did I do something evil because i aided and abetted an SUV driver? :P
Hi I just joined this group. I am Becky and I am 23.
I like music, movies, and writing, oh and LOST!
I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a good used tredmill?
where would be a good website or place online to download/watch full episodes of programs they have on the history channel? i am specifically interested in the ones about greek history, war, and architecture, as well as worldwarII trivia, and i LOVE the ones about the bible, good or bad.
i have tried on youtube to try interesting documentaries, but alas, most are pasted together by other people.
portland, where do you go online to watch history shows :B?
