Best place to purchase a new or used, well priced but good quality bike in Portland?
On the west side, preferably.
Can anyone recommend a vet that specializes in exotic pets? I found one that's called Southwest Animal Hospital Exotic Animal Practice on Murray. Any experiences here? I need to take my guinea pigs in today but I wanted to double check to see if anyone had any recommendations
Unfortunately Southwest Animal Hospital doesn't have any openings today, but I made an appointment at PetSam.
My babies appear to have had a fight last night and there is blood on their fur.. Luckily the one that is also missing some fur around his mouth area seems to be acting normal, but I don't want to take any chances :( Thank you for your quick recommendations, it means a lot.
didn't realize it was such a big deal. just wanted to get the word out about a show that I was proud to be taking part in. I assume the use of the word "bombarded" was probably a bad decision but I've noticed that posts get pushed back fairly quickly so I figured I would post it once a week or so until the actual show so that as many people as possible would see it. I guess it does fall in the category of an "advertisement" so for that I'm sorry. I'll keep my art show postings off of here.
so, after 15 years of not riding, i've decided to start riding lessons again. any recommendations of where to get some affordable english-style riding clothes? just need to get some boots, half-chaps, etc.
"you can learn hebrew!" I'll teach you and you can teach yourself and then I'll have one more person to emulate immersion with muahaha! /ulterior. I've got most days free and aim/yahoo what supports tha' unicode.
anyone going to the silverchair show tonight at the aladdin? if so, how early are you going? thanks!
Any recommendations for a local tattoo artist? Someone that will draw something up (underwater scene) and has a wonderfully artistic imagination. I like to walk in with an idea, and let the artist take over from there.
I have heard Tiger Lily on Sandy is good and I have looked through their books. Anyone have any experience there?
I don't mind a wait list and I realize that I get what I pay for so I'm not looking to be cheap.
I'm looking for a local watch shop, preferably something like an old man (or lady) who spent their life working on watches, clocks and the like. I've got an 80 yr old pocketwatch where the hour hand keeps slipping a little bit, and since this is an antique, I'm looking for someone who would treat it with respect, and I would rather give my money to a local than a large chain. Thanks in advance.
Are any of you going to the Faerieworlds Festival in Eugene this weekend? I'm going on Sunday and would love to meet up!
Hello! I am trying to plan a wedding in Portland, and am hoping someone here has any suggestions?
Specifically, I am looking for a location to have the wedding at. I would like to have the ceramony and reception at the same place if at all possible, outdoors would be nice as well. We are having a small and inexpensive shin-dig. I would prefer to NOT have it at a hotel.
Any suggestions would be awesome, and thank you!
Anyone have recommendations for a rental beach house that can sleep about 5? I've checked CL and a few other similar sites, but not a lot of luck, partially due to availability on the weekend I am planning- Aug 11, 12 (soon, i realize). If you have a company you've had a good experience with or if your family/friends have one they would rent out, I'd love to hear from you. I can vouch for myself as a good renter. Looking mainly for a nice beach view and a big porch/deck, maybe a hot tub, around 2 hrs away. Thanks!
I don't know what happened, as I was asleep I guess when it all went down, but if you were part of the apparent 2 car collision at 28th and Hawthorne last night that decided to make my car an unwilling 3rd participant in the accident...and NOT leave a note or anything....screw you. Seriously.
As I said, I wasn't watching it or anything, but a nice big scrape and damage to the rear end of my car, and vehicle debris in the road (broken lights and I think a side mirror) suggests that they hit each other and plowed into me at the end of the collision. And really, if it happens, it happens. I understand during an accident you don't really get to make these decisions. But to not leave a note? To basically treat it as a hit and run? Not cool. Because now I get to pay for it.
That's all. Nothing really constructive.
I'm not sure if this a common occurence in Oregon but if anyone is looking for a Wii, I randomly stopped at a Walmart off of exit 62 on 84 and they had 5 of them (excluding the one I picked up just because that's the first time I've seen them in stores).
The weather right now. At this very moment. 5:54 pm. Is perfect. It reminds me of my hometown on the beach. Slight breeze. 76 degrees. Broken clouds and sun. Yay. Also it takes me 2 days to eat a whole chicken. Rip Chicken.

i am a laid-back, fully employed 34 year old guy, soon to be back in school. i like traveling and go away for some weekends or longer trips. i make and enjoy drinking beer, but don't do the 420 or other stuff. i smoke hand-rollies outside. the housemate/homeowner is taking most of the furniture with her, so it'll be a little bare until i populate the common rooms with comfy chairs, a sofa, and a kitchen table and chairs (your furniture is welcome). i am looking for someone sane and employed, male or female, queer or not, around my age with interest in staying for a year.

To the asshole on Park and Alder who stole my car, I hope you know the entire thing was caught on security cam and the cops are now reviewing it (ps harry dies) and since you're such a bad person I'm sure the cops probably already know who you are anywyz.
I need an excuse to use my new userpic :)
Now here we go from the top
Second verse of the same song
With the conclusion,
all should be happy for the ding-dong
This song makes me happy when I think of my personal investment in it. Not TOO personal, but personal enough. Long story.
What's your song / story? I need cheering up ...
Do you have an open live journal/blog?
I used to post regularly, and rarely would lock entries. Then I found out my younger sister was reading them. Then I had a jealous ex-boyfriend who didn't like my posts. Then I got a job as a nanny, and all my entries are locked. I have stopped posting all together.
I would like to start again, to keep up with friends, ask questions, share opinions, and have an outlet for how my day went without having to talk my boyfriend's ear off.
What do you do about this? How do you deal with your families and employers finding your live journal?
How do your friends who do not have a live journal read your entries? I messed around with a website a while back where there would be passwords and seperate blogs and such, but it was too confusing.
Maybe I just don't know how open to be. I have trouble limiting myself and find that I am always deleting things later because I was too open. Maybe I just need an editor. Someone to screen my posts before they get posted.
