So, Kumoricon is coming up this weekend, and I'm looking for some recommendations of good sushi/noodle/Japanese-in-general restaurants around the Vancouver area, preferably within walking distance from the convention center in Vancouver, but possibly 5-10 min. driving distance if need be.
Restaurants should be non-expensive, seeing as my friends and I will be spending lots of money on kawai plushies and prints =3
I got BURNED BAD last time I took my car in to get looked at. Where is a good/honest auto place that is not too far out?? Cheaper is better, but trustworthy is best.
Thanks in advance!! *thinks its the solenoid*
Does anyone in this community play the CCG "The Spoils"? I was at PAX last weekend where I acquired 84 packs of it, but I don't play it and I spend enough money on magic the gathering already that I don't want to start another CCG. I am looking to get two bucks a pack for them, and thought I would see if anyone here wanted them before I tried ebay/craigslist. The packs are pretty evenly divided between first edition and first edition part 2.
what are my options as far as singing telegrams go in portland
So I need to know where I could shop for some nice clothes for interviews. I have always just worked with what I have but since I am trying to find a job that is not in food service, I need to find something more professional and nice looking. Maybe a nice skirt and blouse and jacket...a suit essentially. Where could I find this without going completely broke?
Oh wise Portlanders who know everything! I have just been given a moderate amount of money by the people who ran into my car. The insurance estimate was based on the need to replace
1: the hood panel, because it is bent and scratched
2: everything around it (12 pieces including headlights), to achieve a good color blend.
Now, seeing that half of the city drives around in cars that are much more beaten up, I doubt the need for part (2). I would rather keep part of the money, and have part (1) cheaply done.
Can anyone, please, recommend me a cheap auto body shop, somewhere around Beaverton, where they would do a reasonable job on the hood panel replacement, charge appreciably less than 1400, and leave the rest alone?
FYI to anyone following the issue that someone posted about earlier (the issue being Ira Glass hosting an OPB fundraiser at an anti-gay church)... I emailed his agent earlier today, presumably along with several other people, and after I'd initially received only a perfuctory reply, this just landed in my inbox:
Ira Glass has asked OPB to find an alternate space for his lecture event and they are working on this today. Thank you for your email.
yay for him and us.
does anyone have ideas on where i might find a dirt-cheap yet functional record player? preferably as old as possible. i don't know the format very well, so i just want a little system to listen to old, old records on.
i've looked through craigslist, but i was wondering if any of you had any gems of wisdom to share...
Do you believe in Sasquatch? - m4w - 34

I have my doubts, but my friend doesn't, and he's no dummy. He's an authority in this field, and says if I really want to encounter Sasquatch, I should go out alone to camp overnight in one of the "hotspots" near Portland. That way, I'll dramatically increase my chances of encountering Sasquatch, which almost always amounts to hearing them calling, tree-knocking, or somehow emitting low-frequency droning sounds. If it's true they have perceptive abilities far beyond ours, and are less threatened by single (not two) men, or if the person is with children and/or open-minded females, as my friend believes, you might help me encounter Sasquatch. I am not a wacko. In fact, you'll have the chance to judge for yourself, as we'll have to meet about a week ahead of time to see if we're really on the same page about this.
Sunday night's at Devil's Point.
Anyone ever been to this? Is it as awesome as it sounds?
I was wondering if any of you out there have ever had mild to moderate acne scarring removed/repaired/improved by the new fangled laser techniques?
I am curious about it and so would love any information any of you brilliant folks may have in regards to such a procedure.
I will be seeing my dermatologist soon and will discuss it with him, but until then I wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with this.
