did someone around 76th and Division lose a kitty?
She's an adult, a little chunky/muscular, no tags, white spot on her nose and a black stripe down her back. I think she's a tabby/mix, short haired. She's sweet, friendly, and I think she belongs to somebody.
Where might I buy 80 little white bottles of bubbles? It's one of those little wedding details that got overlooked until now (two days before my wedding).
Also, where is the best place near Clackamas Mall to get a manicure and a pedicure? My sister is trying to convince me to get fake nails for my big day. I hate the things, but I would like to have my nails buffed and painted with a clear coat. My sister said a nail place wouldn't do that unless I got fake nails. Is she pulling my chain?
Quick question: anyone know of a multi-protocol instant messaging application with support for both Windows and MacOS?
And happy Friday!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled OMGSNOWELEVENTYONE!!! postings.
I'm sure this has been posted, but my LJSeek-fu is failing today.
Could anyone recommend a "green" carwash (where they recycle waste water)? Inner east side, ideally. I have one hella-dirty car to wash.
What is your favorite animated Disney movie?
Mine has to be Beauty and the Beast.
i'm a bike novice who is coming down for the weekend from seattle to rescue my stolen car. (a few of you may remember me posting here after it was stolen from 4th and morrison. some guy called and the thieves abandoned it on fiske st. yay!)
while i'm down, i figured i'd try to buy a new bike. i don't have a whole lot to spend, so i'm looking for a store that has a big used bike selection and employees who are friendly to someone who's completely clueless. (i tried to buy one off craigslist up here, but i know so little that the one i ended up with was totally nonfunctional for rain and longer rides up hills :/ so now i'd rather go the shop route.) i'd rather go to a neighborhood place vs. something rei-like.
My wife and I are starting to do professional photography and we're looking for a good lab in the Portland area that will print on professional paper, i.e. the kind that says "Copyrighted Image, do not reprint" on the back of the paper, not just professional quality paper.
I've checked with Pro Photo, they don't do that. Any ideas where else I should look?
I need...errr want a wii.
Does anybody know a place that currently has them in stock? I'm willing to travel.
Do you have one you want to sell?
Finally moved back to Portland after seven years away up north (yay!) and I need to get hooked up with some services, to wit:
1) My Suzuki GS500 needs a tune-up, chain, sprockets, and rear brakes - what's a good (motor)bike shop here in PDX?
2) My rat needs a mammary tumor taken off. I know there are ratlovers on this comm, so what vet would you recommend?
3) My rat also needs a new buddy, since her cagemate passed away in May, so I need a good rat breeder (though I will also check Petfinder to see what the Oregon Humane Society has in the way of rats.) I got a couple of rats from Khat's Rats many years ago, but I don't have any contact info for her now. Is she still in the rat-breeding business?
Anyone here have experience making custom Arcade Controllers, the kind that use the parts from arcade cabinets? I want one for fighting games on the PS2.
(To clarify I am looking to pay someone to build me one, but I would rather have it made locally not shipped from CA. I am sure someone in Portland does this for a hobby. It sounds like fun, I just don't have the extra time)
I am planning to get some tickets to one or two of the Broadway shows that come to Portland every so often. For a serious drama or a musical, which area has the best seats (where you do not have to use binoculars to see the action)? I was there once for my sister's graduation and we could hardly see the people on stage from where we were.
Anyone ever been there?
I work at Best Buy in Tualatin (the new one that just opened. We got in 80 Wii's today. 30 to be sold today and the rest on Sunday.
So anybody who wants one should go soon. I just left there at 4:45 and we've only sold one so far.
My coworkers and I weren't very happy. It took two hours for them to serve the seven of us their five-course "mini-sampler" (which was both mini in size and flavor) when the place was completely empty. The bartender overcharged three of my coworkers on their glasses of wine and tried to give another a flat beer. I asked for a kir, which is white wine and creme de cassis - blackcurrant liqueur. The bartender had no clue what it was, and tried giving me a glass of iced white wine and creme de cacao with a slice of lemon in it, which was hideous. I sent it back, and told her what was in a kir, and she came back a while later and said they didn't have blackcurrant liqueur, or blackberry, or raspberry, or black cherry or anything. I said fine, give me a seabreeze, which is vodka, cranberry juice and grapefruit juice. I got a glass of cranberry juice with maybe a jigger of vodka. She was utterly clueless, and slow as hell.
As we were paying the bill, she pulls out a little drink menu and says "oops, looks like we have a kir!" and shows me where it says Kir Royale on the menu.

I come to you in search of knowledge... I'm trying to find a birthday gift for a friend of mine. She's got some great interests and hobbies; and I think I've narrowed it down to her love of baking. She especially likes cakes. Can you think of something that would be great to get for her? Or consequently; do you know of any baking classes? Or any recommendations? a_muffin_story; I'm looking at you!
