I am almost 22. I like shopping, going to bars and eating french fries, but going to concerts and other events is the main reason. My fiance hates going to shows, which was something I used to do so religiously back in Wisconsisn. I love all sorts of music from Talib Kweli to the Horrorpops and Against Me! to pretty much anything. I just hate going to concerts/museums/exhibits/dance parties alone!
Oh, and go ahead and snark if you must. :)
so could someone please tell me where I could cheaply aquire needle, thread, twine,wooden beads, etc, all sorts of crafty goodness, in one ( or even several) places for cheap?
I don't care if it's ten in the morning or what, it's time for a beer.

Anyone out there good with Dreamweaver who wouldn't mind my picking your brain for a few minutes, in exchange for coffee or donuts or pie or lunch or whatever depending on how many minutes it turns into?
Long story short, I can't change the left nav bar here, and I really really need to. It's WAY more involved but I'll spare the gory details unless you call!
"Hello, do you still have the above listed item available, if yes iemail me the present condition and the last pride you which to sale itout,
"Hello there,i will like to know if the above listed item is still available for sale?"
and this one's a real winner:
How are you doing today,I am interested in your item for sale,And
can you send me the last price of the item,And did you accept cashier
check as means of payment,And kindly mail me back o k if you accept
Awaiting to hear from you...
The responses are from email addresses that look legit, but obviously they are...well, not. I don't think it's possible for that many people to not possibly know how to conjugate correctly and have such improper grammar. Sigh. This makes selling my dresser that much more difficult. I swear, six months ago I didn't have nearly as many fake responses when I was selling my old entertainment center.
Oh, and for the record, I'm selling my dresser/nightstand set, if anyone is interested! Heh.
So I created one: pdxforfree.
If any helpful souls out there can point me to the com I'm simply not finding, I'll delete this one. Otherwise, shameless community promo!
ETA: Yup, I'm an idjit. Thanks to bouncingfizgig, I found it at pdx_for_free.
anyone know anything about stomach issues?
for the last three days I've been getting horrible pains, wake up almost in tears, wanting my mama kind of pain. it's not gas, indigestion, or acid, nor is it anything to do with my ovaries.
the pain is a few fingers below the base of my ribs, and it feels like someone is grabbing my stomach with two hands and twisting it in opposite directions.
it comes and goes during the day, sometimes causing me to almost buckle over. and it will get really bad in the middle of the night. I think it may have to do with how much I'm moving. moving around=not so bad nor as persistent. sitting for awhile, or sleeping=will attack every few minutes for half an hour or more.
(and no, moving around all the time and never sleeping is not really an option, thank you very much.)
anyone ever delt with this kind of thing? should I buck up (and pay out) and go to a doctor? is there another community I should ask?
thank you so much for any advice.
EDIT: okay, okay, thanks you guys. I'll get my ass to a doctor. ugh.
Anyway, I'd like $400+. If someone wants to try and get that for me, I will give you $100 at $400 and split 50/50 anything you can get higher than that. I'm insanely busy right now (especially during any normal biz hours) or I would do it. Also, I just don't seem to know how to do this with any efficiency.

August 13 is Home Movie Night at Monday Movie Night.
View home movies from the 1920's - 1980's of the Pacific Northwest. Amazing selection of amateur films on 8mm and 16mm silent films. One-of-a-kind selections include:
15-minute home movie of the convenience store featured in Gus Van Sant's first film, Mala Noche, shot by Walt Curtis, Mala Noche author.
Drunken Holiday Party. Find out who was the most hungover guest on January 2, 1957 in this regrettable permanent record of an office party. Gambling, co-worker fondling and Jim Beam shots are all prominent here.
Rockaway Beach Carnival Scenes of the 30's, featuring timeless scenes shot by a local Portland family on vacation.
Portland Trains and Streetcars, amateur footage shot from the 1920's to the 1940's by local train enthusiast.
Drugs Kill, a Tacoma, WA high school film project illustrating the evils of drug abuse in 1981.
Plus many more home movies!
Spend a couple of hours under the stars as you view some of the finest documentary and educational films salvaged from the 20th century. The show begins at sunset, on the patio of Mississippi Station in North Portland. Local media historian and author Tom Robinson will introduce each 16mm print from his collection and play it on a vintage projector older than you are. See these original films the way they were meant to be seen, on a real projector, on a real screen, and drunk.

EDIT: I'm actually looking for drinks known as "fishbowl cocktails". Has anyone heard of these things, and are they served in Portland?
Thanks for any help y'all can provide.
A teenager was taken to hospital after overdosing on espresso coffee.
I'm using some wicked harsh nasal spray stuff now that's damn effective, but it lasts 12 hours and I've used it in the past and it gets hard to gauge my real level of sickness while I'm on it plus it actually *causes* you to be stuffed up after a few days. I'll welcome any and all general cold advice, but really, I just want to know the story behind this lack of effective cold remedies.
EDIT: I also just read somewhere that you can apparently get it with a doctor's prescription. No go for me as I don't have health insurance and can't afford a doctor right now and even if I did and could, would not got to one just so I could get some silly OTC nasal decongestant.
