... I am thankful for each and every one of you crazy fuckers.
Thanks for another year of awesome knowledge, insight, humor, and weirdness. Especially weirdness.
to the person who is writing the Tri-Met bus stop numbers on the signs with sharpie... thanks!
i was gonna do it myself and you're beating me to it.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I am writing to see if any of you had any good suggestions of what restaurant to go to for a holiday gathering? I'm thinking a group of 10, eating good comfort food, or a place with a holiday atmosphere. I don't really want to eat at nationwide chain restaurants like Claim Jumper, Cheesecake Factory, Applebees, or Olive Garden. Thank you!
Hey, so I just got this 3rd generation iPod Nano and it says it's not compatible with my OS, since I only have Mac OSX 10.3.9. The box said it requires OS 10.4.8. I called its bluff when I bought it, thinking it meant that 10.4.8 was just OPTIMAL, as there seems to be no technological reason my computer couldn't update an iPod. I've got iTunes 7.4 and all that.
But no, when I plug it in, it flat out says it's not compatible with my OS.
Anyone know if there's a way around this? And if not, can I download a free upgrade to OSX 10.4.8 anywhere?
Lousy planned obsolescence.
What's the biggest news story that you heard first on
damnportlanders livejournal? Mine: 9/11.
I went to Nicholas Restaurant last night, in Southeast on Grand,
and it has definitely made my top favorite restaurant list.
Their portions were massive and half their menu was vegan
and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes Lebanese/Middle Eastern food.
Hopefully they have some left, but Jolly Roger on SE 12th and Hawthorne has been serving free turkey dinners all day, stopping at 7 PM. They have all the usual Thanksgiving suspects, and that includes pumpkin pie! (Though it has regular green beans instead of the awesomer green bean casserole).
I want to donate blood and make money. Where do I go?
Just wanted to ask the random question of the day. (Am I too late? Have we already had one?)
I'm looking to track down a couple of functional vanity items.
#1 -- A (wool?) bias-cut plaid skirt that won't break the bank. (Sister doesn't need any horizontal stripes, thank you very much.)
#2 -- extremely stiff, tight fitting flat shoes that look professional for work. (No, it's not some foot binding fetish, it's an injury/suspected break I need to immobilize.) EDIT: I think I would like to find these locally... Like in the next couple of days.
Oh, yeah. And just to keep with the damnportlanders theme, I'm also looking for some vegan cocaine, a new tattoo, and someone to adopt my adorable baby rats!!! *drink*
I'm a bartender, and as a result, I tend to deal in cash an awful lot.
Last time I went into my bank, I brought in like $1900 dollars in cash, to deposit it.
My teller looked at me like I was a drug dealer or something.
I was just curious, what's the most amount of cash you guys have carried around, or deposited at the bank?
How early are you heading out? Anyone going to Best Buy besides me?
Is it just me or is it hard to be an American these days? I wish the world had a better view of us. Not our government because we don't exactly support that, I mean the good American people. The ones fighting for what they believe in, for progress, and for expanded human rights. The stuff us Portlanders believe in. It's just rough when I go to Canada and someone tells me to go back home because they aren't "like you". Anyone else experienced this? Anti American sentiment is a drag *kicks dirt*.
