When my mother was still around she would always sing this song to me. Its definitely one of my happy songs. only, she sang the Doris Day version of course.
Que sera sera
While babysitting when I was young, I'd cheer up the kids by singing "Don't Worry, be happy." Its crazy how well it worked and I'm no singer. *tee hee*
Things like: Steve Buscemi & his short-bread man commercials, fizzgig, the two men in the balcony, maps, lemmings, and out of place humor like the cat wearing a scuba mask underwater in "We Love Katamari"... and ANY THING that helps me sleep!
oooh, the list goes on... what things always make your day when you see/do/ or hear them?
oh yes... and hoping you're all having a very stressless HUMP day! <3

Portland related because we all love to drink and I have to bring in a cocktail recipe to a social networking event in Portland! What is a cocktail that you love, that LOOKS fancy, but is not complicated to make and does not require many ingredients? And.... GO!
What model did you bring?
How did you get the maps onto it?
Were the maps free?
Thanks in advance o wise DPers!
Yeah, me again. Only this time with an offer.
Due to various and sundry circumstances, I find myself with ONE extra ticket to tonight's concert. ONLY ONE. It's yours for $20 and meeting me at the door. First one to offer gets it.
so, we bought our home about two years ago and our inspection said we were a-ok but ....
about an hour ago I noticed ... a swarm of termites is coming in through the frame around the front door!!!!
I have no experience with exterminators
I would love some recommendations ... and as non stinky/toxic as possible too ...
Hi. I'm looking for a few recommendations.
1. I need to get the interior of my car cleaned. My car is generally clean and it's an '05 but there is dog hair everywhere. I'd like to get my car detailed and I don't want to spend an arm and a leg, otherwise I will do it myself. I am looking for a reputable auto detailing place near the Hillsboro/Beaverton area.
2. My birthday is next month and I want to get a massage. I'd like to spend less than $100. I am looking for the perfect massage. I prefer a female masseuse. Does anyone have any personal recommendations?
3. A restaurant in Portland worthy of a gift certificate? I plan on giving my brother-in-law and his wife a date night for Christmas: dinner, a movie, and free babysitting. I plan on doing a $50 gift certificate.
Thank you guys! Everyone have a happy holiday season!
i need some auto body repair estimates done tomorrow.
any suggestions for good places to go?
i live around se 25th and pine.
how much do they cost?
I am not experienced in buying fitness equipment, so I am wondering how to go about buying some free weights and a small bench for Christmukah/Hanumas for my boyfriend. I don't want to buy them off Craigslist because I know the experience will drive me insane. I am in inner SE portland, but I am willing to drive anywhere in the city. Anyone know where I can find this?
I recently received a check in the mail for $3,499. Sadly, it was not my kicker check but in fact a check that is part of a very obvious (to me) scam. The letter with the check says I've been selected for a "Mystery Shopper" program and I should use this check to cover my expenses. Of course after cashing the check I need to hook up with Western Union or Moneygram and send back 2,900 dollars. Riiiiiiight.
I'd like to report this scam BUT I'm not sure who/where to report it to. I did Google around for a while and was led to the BBB and the Attorney General, yet my specific issue doesn't look like something the BBB will address and the office of the Attorney General only seems to give a rip if I've already lost money to the scam.
So I ask you- who the hell do I report this to? Should I just shred it and forget about it? I'd like to do something because although I caught on to the scam it's actually somewhat well done and I could see people being fooled by it. I'd also like to see the assholes responsible for the scam get in trouble, if I could help it. Can I do anything at all?
Does anyone know if it's possible to get into Canada from the U.S. if you don't have your passport with you?
My grandma in Vancouver, BC is super sick and me being the poor college student that I am, I was planning to drive up to visit her this weekend. But now that I-5 is closed for who knows how long, leaving me stuck in Portland, I was wondering if anyone knows the (other) cheaper way -- whether someone had extra air miles to sell, or a ride to BC this girl could hitch, or basically whatever! If you could hookup/help this girl out, it would be super appreciated. :)
Any help would mean so much to me. The sooner, the better. Please let me know!
Anybody else having problems lately with Safeway's 2% in plastic jugs going bad really fast? The last two gallons I've bought have developed a weird odor within a day of opening them. I think I'm gonna take one back and bitch at them tomorrow.
I should be doing homework now that is due tomorrow, but instead I am trying desperately to find out who opened for Tori Amos last night at the Schnitz because although I was there, I didn't see the opening act. I usually love her openers and that's how I discovered Jude, Rufus Wainwright and Imogen Heap. Curiously I did not like Howie Day.
I need to know! Thanks.
