Hi, I'm hoping to play ping pong against people, but I don't know where to do it. May I get a recommendation for fun places to play?
I know that a lot of the space in bars is lamed out with pool tables, and that public ping pong tables are inconvenient and rare, but I think it would be fun to play at a bar, and maybe wager beers on games. But if there aren't any bars with ping pong, then I'm more than happy to play at a community center, or with a ping pong club, or what ever. I'm pretty good, although not terribly competitive with it. I mostly just think it's really fun. Before moving here I was playing two to three games a day, plus a lot of warm-up rallies. And that's been my routine, off and on, for probably 15 years.
Alrighty guys, seeing as the term's getting to the end, and I am going insane with my 20 credits, this Friday will be my sweet sweet oasis when I go see 300. The question is, which movie theater do I go to? I haven't even been to one in Portland yet since I so rarely see movies in theaters, but after a near-masochistic barrage of arty flicks and dumb comedies through Netflix, I am so so so willing to pay top effin' dollar for this.
Which theater should I go to for a maximum nuts-rocking cinematic experience?
..after several years of ethical debate with myself, i've finally decided to look into more about plastic surgery and fixing my saggy upper arms. im a normal 21 year old that had dramatic weight loss in high school and it feels unfair, they just dont fit with what the rest of my body looks like and it makes me uncomfortable. i've tried what i could (exercise, weight lifting, cremes...getting over it) and this just seems like the next option.
i've seen some stuff on Thermage and liposelection. and it seems like thats what i need. does anybody recommend a surgeon or have anything they think i should know? i can go anywhere in oregon or southern washington if its worth it.
...annnnnnnd release the hounds
Hey there! I've got a $250 Spafinder Gift Certificate. I won it in an online contest and don't think I'll use it. I'm selling it for $200 and if you want more information, check out www.spafinder.com There are several spas in the Portland area that take the gift certificate and many are listed in the accompanying booklet or online. If you're interested, let me know!
I sold it on Craigslist last night, so no longer for sale.
When I went to PCC a few years ago I saw in the Sylvania Bookstore a smallish USB thumbdrive and an mp3 player attachment. I don't remember the brandname, I jsut remember the thumbdrive itself was small and the end of it lights up blue when you plug it in (a friend of mine bought one when she went there, but I can't ask her what brand it is). If anyone is a student there and either knows or is going to stop by the bookstore, can you look upstairs and see if they still carry those and how much both parts are?
are there any stores in the portland area that sell glass dragons? actually, any medieval style (not chinese style) dragons would be good (as in it doesn't have to be made out of glass. sometimes they're made of pewter or other metal). thanks portlanders =)
I have some work pants that need to get shortened and hemmed. Does anyone know an inexpensive alteration shop I could go to in the Beaverton area, or Portland... and how much you pay to get it done? THANKS!
Would there happen to be a place in Portland that sells Vegemite? My Aussie friends got me interested.
Don't worry, I'm not pregnant.
So I was thinking about trying to kick-start a fundraiser for the guy the Belmont Market. I was thinking I'd see if one of the nearby bars would agree to hold a fundraiser evening. Then maybe other businesses would contribute stuff for auction (coffee? free admission at the Avalon? record albums?) and...well, that's as far as I've thought it out so far. Maybe the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association would help too. Nothing we raise is going to pay the guy's medical bills, but I think anything helps...
What do you think? Have any of you ever organized a fundraiser and have some hot tips? Would anyone be down to help?
Anyone know where one can get 12 hour claritin (or a store brand of claritin) over the counter? I don't have the money to go to the doctor, and then pay for the prescription, and all I can find over the counter is the 24 hour tablets (which I tolerate, but don't like for a number of reasons).
Nope, not remotely pirate-related, but it's been too long since last I uttered "avast." So there ya go.
In other news, I have a briefcase in need of a replacement clasp. Seems simple enough. I'm wondering if any of you beautiful babies knows where a fella might go to get something like this taken care of. Any suggestions?
PS IT IS MUHFUGGING SUNNY OUT THERE QUIT YOUR JOB AND GO OUT THERE NOW.
Oh wise Damn Portlanders....
So has anyone taken a trip out to the John Day Fossil Beds out in Eastern Oregon? Specifically, has anyone stayed at a hotel/campground/other lodging out there? I'm finding very little in the way of lodging out there, and I'd like to get some opinions of good places to stay.
I think we're planning on being there 3 nights the last week of March, if that makes any difference.
i've lost my ipod.
small, green, inscribed on the back with a crunchy message from my hippie parents.
contains some music i will never be able to access again :(
if by chance you're the sort who finds lost precious things and searches for their longing owners...well, here i am.
if by chance you're the sort who likes to be clever and leave scolding/snide remarks for the sort who makes vulnerable, hopeful "I LOST MY ____________" on damnportlanders, move along.
go ahead. save my life.
I'm currently in the Mt. Tabor area preparing for a late night study session with a friend. We would like to go get some coffee at a place that is:
a) Not Fireside
b) Not all the way over in NW Portland (so no Coffee Time, Anna Banana's, etc)
c) Currently open! It's 10:06 pm right now, so Common Grounds is closed.
Can anyone think of any other options?
