We have been snarking the H-E-double hockey sticks out of each other. I have been here or what, 15 minutes, and I'm all eye-rolling as soon as I see certain names on the header for a post. And I'm sure I ain't the onliest one.
So, my proposal is we declare a happy DAMN song that we can hum to ourselves while beating back the snark demons. I smite thee, snark demon. Well, not completely, but enough so I can read through the WHOLE post and comments before striking.
My trio: Candy Girl by New Edition, When I Get You Alone by Robin Thicke and Bidi Bidi Bom Bom by Selena. You may not need mindless dreck but that's what works for me. So does writing Mrs. drjeff on my Peachie.
what would you have him talk about?
I want a stencil with the handicap symbol and the words NO ACCESS on it, who can anonymously provide, in case it's traceable graffiti? but also I might never follow through with tagging the fucking annoying non-ramped/bumpy/inaccessible sidewalks. someone else might.. who knows. email significants gmail if you can do it free, or if you brought it upon yourself to bring attention to those parts, plus locations if you please. thanks!
Sup dudes. I am thinking about visiting the Jefferson Theater to see what it's all about, but before I do I'd like to know what I'm getting myself into. Porn theater only? Strippers? Live sex acts? Not that any of these would discourage me, but I'd like to know what I'd be participating in/viewing.
Also, anyone know of a good lesbian bar to visit in the area that's for younger women in their early 20s primarily? Preferably h0t b@b3s? If so, what is their spoken/unspoken policy about men? If I went I'd want to bring my guy friends like I would to any other bar.
LiveJournal is having some problems with malicious traffic. It's all up in the support site.
In the mean time, posting by email seems to work fine.
Why can't I post to my journal?!
Anyone know what's up with the lack of ships this week?
Again, I must consult the oracle of DP:
So, I somehow defied the odds and landed a J-O-B at one of those big fancy buildings downtown. I've been looking for a good coffee shop, but all I've seen thus far are corporate asswipe chain stores like Starbuck's.
Where's the best non-yuppie coffeehouse in or close to downtown? Bonus points if they also offer good organic and/or vegan breakfast bars/cookies/pastries. (drink!)
I've been trying to finish (more like start) a craft project but can't seem to find inkjet printer iron-on transfers. You know, the kind that you print a reverse image onto, then iron the image on a shirt?
I remember we used to sell them when I worked for Best Buy, but now I can't find them anywhere locally. Are they now the realm of specialty paper stores? Stationary stores? Do I have to go to a photo supply shop? WHERE ARE THE TRANSFERS ALREADY?!?!?!
Where is the best place(walking distance to oh, 3rd/4th and Alder) to get good grilled cheese and tomato soup? Preferrably somewhere that is not BluePlate, while their grilled cheese is good, their soup doesn't do much for me.
Any recommendations? Today is a rainy dreary soup and sammich kinda day :)
hello all! glorious day!
anyway, i didn't find anything about brake repairs (specifically) in past entries. i need to get my brakes worked on (as in crunching sound, probable rotor and pad replacement, maybe more) and i have yet to have anything repaired on my car here.
does anyone have a suggestion of somewhere i can get my brakes fixed? it'd be really awesome if you've personally had something repaired at your recommended shop and can vouch for their service. as anyone does, i'd like to avoid breaking my bank, but i want a quality job, so...
i live in north portland and work in downtown, so somewhere in those areas is preferred.
thanks, dp! you rock!
It's raining! Fellow Portlanders rejoice!
I just love the rain; the quieting sound of it falling on sidewalks; the sombre gray overhead; the refreshing chill that leads to cozier habits and warmer clothing. Oh yeah, and the fact that the allergens are ripped out of the air leaving many Portlanders at ease.
Anyway, what is there in the way of Swing dancing lessons/nights here in Portland? I'd love to know! And perhaps suggestions for some great swing songs or bands to listen to as well. I already have some stuff like Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Big Bad VooDoo Daddies, so what else do you have for me?
pleasedontkillme if this has been posted before. i promise i did the search thing.
i'm visiting portland for a few days this week and would really like to spend as little money as possible.
what are the best places to get free/insanely cheap food in portland? what's tasty, what's open on weekends, what's close to downtown, etc.?
thanks, all. love ya.
Say I lived in SE Portland and wanted to volunteer one day per week helping out with homeless/homeless related issues with a (secular or not too pushy religious) organization. Who would I contact?
So we found this dog, want to take him into vet cause he has some serious sores on him and could be a beauitful lab..
Where is the cheapest place to take him that wont break the bank? We are looking for his owners also so dont want to drop a grand on a dog that is not ours. We are in beaverton, but will travel for right price ;)
I don't have health insurance and I need to see a doctor about some allergy relief. Does anyone know of a low-cost clinic or doctor in the downtown Portland or Beaverton area that I can go to without being charged a ton of money?
They were less interesting (to me) than the Democratic candidate debates--then again, this was the third GOP debate I've seen and only the first Democratic (I missed the MSNBC Democrat debates, although I've seen some clips) debate. Or maybe that 10 white guys arguing on a stage isn't terribly thrilling.
Who did you guys think did better, Democrats or Republicans? Did any of the Republicans stand out to you?
My much beloved bought-from-Goodwill-for-$5 Doc Marten's have a scar on the toe. What is the best way to at least minimize the appearance of it? I got some "scuff cover" shoe polish which at least made it less dull than the rest of the shoe, but there's a definite displacement of leather. Thanks for any info.
Also, I have it in my head that there's a Doc store on Burnside somewhere, but am more brainless than usual and can't remember where it is. I'm looking for the shoe polish and insoles - I'd pay just as much for insoles at Freddie's and I've already worn through a Freddie's pair with these shoes. Thanks. :D
Need some input. Any help is greatly appreciated!
1. I am a graduate student who will be soon taking a MTWR class in the afternoon. The class will be a month long from July-Aug but I would like to get a temporary/part-time job in the mornings or late afternoon. Because I am bilingual, every employer I have dealt with starts requiring more hours, or insisting on offering me f/t offers or more money. That is good and dandy but I am weary of saying "sorry not interested". Question: Any good temp offices that you know that can offer me short-term gigs (Admin/csr/etc) without having to commit. Bonus puntos if they are located downtown. I do not have experience with temp offices in Portland (just Florida).
2. I want to gain some basic yet substantial enough web design skills that would make my vitae look good. If I am able to update existing websites, add a few text or new pages, then I am happy chica . Should I take a class via PCC this summer? I saw several Dreamweaver (Basic and Interm) and XHTML classes, and was wondering how helpful they could be!
Gracias a todos y todas.
Hey where'd be a good cheap place to get a zipper on a jacket repaired/replaced? Awesome points if it's near campus/downtown.
