portland-related because I hgave a question: where in portland can I overhear someone talking about a band?
Also, they are some of the worst dressed teenage lesbians I've ever seen.
It's not really so much of a dentist-phobia as it is a Jesus-Christ-they're-gonna-pull-my-freak
So if someone could recommend a dentistry that would be, um, nice and supportive of me in this time of extreme fright, I'd greatly appreciate it. Normally I take the "suck it up" attitude (I'm a pro with needles), but, ugh, not this time.
In addition, this'll be the first time I hop over to the dentist's without my parents' help. I have Blue Cross insurance...does that limit my choice in dentists? Sorry, I know I sound extremely ignorant as to the ways of the world. But once again, any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
He has more than earned a right to be covered in mainstream news.
Does any one know where to get any really good fresh bee pollen? The guy i've been getting it from now charges a small fortune!!! Thanx pdxers
I either need to find a place locally that sells case-hardening powder like Kasenit, or a welder/gunsmith/metal shop that can case-harden a 2-inch plate of steel before Friday. Anyone got a lead?
Yes, I called hardware stores and supply shops for welders. No dice.
As wonderful a tool as this is, I really only use LiveJournal for DamnPortlanders these days. And since in 30 days time I will no longer be a Damn Portlander, I decided to delete this journal within the next week. Mid July, I am moving home to New Orleans to keep hope alive and be a a part of the re-emerging artist community there. You can still find me at http://www.myspace.com/orphanrefugee . However, as I am also going to be a high school teacher come August, I may need to lock my profile down to private status or censor the content pretty heavily in the coming weeks. I don't need any students tracking me down and using my words against me (they are good at that, aren't they). Drop me a line at MySpace if we haven't made friends there yet. If you don't have a MySpace, then use your interwebz-savvy cunning to track me down elsewhere and say hello and/or goodbye.
EDIT: hmm I just realized that perhaps a lot of people who HAVE good therapists would not want to publically announce that fact. If you would prefer, please email me: windfaerie (at) gmail (dot) com
I'm really tired of buying meat from the grocery store and I'm interested in finding a good local meat locker or shop. Any of you wonderful DPers know of any?? Bonus points if they are in Vancouver :-)
Extra bonus points if they are vegan (LOL...I'm kidding...I crack myself up!)
Thank you so much!!!
Oh, and if any of you are seeking a roommate, I'm employed, easy going, clean up after myself, and am not drama-prone at all.

Where are your favorite places in Portland to hang out? They would ideally be low-cost and interesting from an architectural/artistic perspective.
I have a little question?
If you were to make cheese from a human females breast milk,would the eating of it constitute:

I'm trying to watch Bleach on stage 6 using DIVX and it's NOT WORKING. (It freezes every minute or so and then takes 5 minutes to load)
Anyone know how to make divx work?
Anyone know how to make my computer better?
Anyone know a BETTER PLACE TO WATCH BLEACH (preferably in english, I don't really care much for japanese/swedish/german... I'm only on episode 10, it's not that hard)
If you're looking at getting a passport anytime soon from one of our fine local post offices, I recommend going to the PSU post office branch instead of the Main post office near Union Station. The woman at the main office was very unpleasant, and was, in my opinion as a customer service person myself, being rude and was clearly lying about the process (based on the information readily available in that office and from the Department of State). I escaped the hosebeast and went instead to the PSU office to talk to someone there, hoping that they would be a little more willing to help a first-timer to this experience. I was very pleasantly surprised at the results at the PSU location.
The PSU office had an efficient and friendly service, and when I explained the situation about what happened at the main office, they said that woman has a really bad reputation, and then answered my questions about the application process and sounded like they actually knew what they were talking about. The guy who took my pictures even confirmed the pictures before using them so I wouldn't end up with some crappy photo in my passport for the next ten years. They were great!
I'm going to send a letter of thanks to the PSU office about how good my experience was, and send a separate letter to the supervisors at the main office and tell them how awful my experience was in their office.
