So I had to restore all of my laptops settings and start from scratch... and when I went to find my beloved Super Mario theme for Firefox, it was gone. Anybody here randomly know where I might still be able to find it?
And would anyone have any recommendations for a nice bridal shower gift for a conservative girl and where to find it?
Can't we change something about how the garbage trucks operate? I think it's a little ridiculous to be thrust forth from the delicious buttery sweetness of slumber to some jackhole shouting about his girlfriend while chucking the dumpster up into a truck-- from over a block away.
Good morning Portland. Fit To Be Bound, Portland's own 3 minute animated sit com! Enjoy!
To the people who were so helpful earlier this week. It is Friday the 14th, my PSU account says:
"Refund Record Received - Funds Transfer from University in Process"
So should be today it appears. Yays.
Update: I have my money. So you all should have yours. Woot.
Why can I not find a bakery (in Portland) that makes a giant chocolate chip cookie cake?
What the hell? It's really not that hard.
Anyone know of a bakery that does this or is it just a southern thing?
ETA: I just ordered one from Mrs. Fields, who has hidden from me in Lloyd Center for all this time. Thanks a million! And thanks from my soon-to-be 12-year-old, too!
I got overzealous in my gadget fun yesterday and picked up an iPod Touch at an apple store after checking my online order had not shipped yet. Little to my knowledge it went to ready to ship status while I was at the apple store and could no longer cancel it.
Now, Where all of you wonderful Damnportlanders come in. Before I just return it to Apple, Does anyone want to purchase it when it arrives monday or tuesday? It's the 16gb model, $399.
I have a question and thought I'd ask for advice here...Because maybe some of you have been in a similar situation.
I'm a female working in an all male office. (I'm a receptionist) Things have recently gotten out of hand with my coworkers making jokes at my expense. I know how to take a joke but I know when to recognize when lines have been crossed. Most recently they have began to "jokingly" attack my intellect (I'm well-read and well-traveled, I have a BA, going to grad school next year...I don't consider myself an intellectually inept person really).
And it's not like I can take this all to the boss -- he's in on it too. He often makes it a point to nitpick something arbitrary about me (for example -- my education or my background, hair color, etc) in front of the other guys. These are men who are in their forties and older. I'm in my mid 20s.
Honestly, I don't know what to do. I have never been in this situation. How should I handle this?
I want to walk away but I'm terrified that I won't find another decent job. It took my forever to find this one....
If you feel so compelled to snark me *looks at some of you*, then I really don't give a rat's ass. Have at it. I just need legitimate advice.
I'm looking to buy an internal frame backpack for cheap (the kind you'd use for a hiking/camping/backpacking trip). Can anyone recommend a thrift shop (anywhere public-transit-accessible) that might have them on occasion? Or, less preferably, an outlet store that would have new ones for cheap.
Thanks in advance.
Are there any pool hall pool halls left in Portland? What I'm looking for is a pool hall with no bar, no trendies or hipsters, no bar room sized tables, no bands, no renting the tables by the hour, no kids or "family fun centers", and no loud assed music. All I want is a pool hall with regulation sized tables, a jukebox, a couple video games, where smoking is permitted inside, and nothing else.
Does anything like this still exist?
Greetings Damned ones!
The south side of my Mississippi District house takes a real beating. Harsh sun during the summers, and unprotected rain and winds during the winter. The siding needs some real work, and the previous owner did a piss-poor job of priming before painting.
But I'm a bartender, and don't have a lot of loose change to spend on painting.
I'm looking for a personal recommendation for someone who can come by and put my siding in order, scrape, sand, and put down a couple solid coats to protect my wood.
Anyone here have anyone who they love, or know, and who could come out and give me an estimate?
I got a monthly bus pass and it turns out that I get to drive in to work so would anyone be interested in buying it off me for $30? That's less than a half month pass for the same amount of time.
Does anyone out there know where in the Portland area I can go to recycle all of the styrofoam I've collected from various packages? It just seems weird that styrofoam is always included in the stuff you buy and yet you can't find a way to safely get rid of it unless you want to just chuck it into the trash. I've checked the Metro Recycling website under the list of what they'll take at their recycling centers and styrofoam isn't included for some odd reason. Any help is appreciated because I really want to unload this stuff.
So I'm sure that some of you fine folks have probably walked into the wonderful dark depths of Jiggles and since my Google-fu sucks I was wondering if anyone happens to know how much it cost to get in tonight since my friends have yet to experience the "joy" of watching women take off there cloths for money.
So all wise DamnPortlanders, How much does it cost to get into Jiggles tonight?
Ok, so it may be the change in weather or just one hell of a work week.
Now I find my self needing to relieve some stress.
So I come to you people, any one know of a place that will be open to night(after 7:30 ish), where I can beat the crap out of something (a punching bag, person, etc...)?
Maybe a boxing club or something ??
Alright DP I need your help. My sister-in-law has a family history of heart problems and was just recently in the hospital for some diagnostic testing. They were supposed to do an angiogram but her current cardiologist is more of a pump her full of meds and see what happens kind of doc. Now, if any of you could help me in finding a cardiologist that would better listen to the patient and possibly do this angiogram I would be ever so grateful. Oh and my sister-in-law is in Gladstone, has insurance and would probably go anywhere in the Portland metro area. Thanks in advance!
*no drinking 'cause it's bad for your heart*
