best breakfast in SE Portland?
I'm really looking to get back into theatre. Specifically auditioning for Shakespearean plays...
But not limiting to just that stream...
Does anyone know of a good theatre around the Portland area with perhaps a listing of what auditions are going on in the near future?
Thanks in advance,
I've got two tickets to the Spoon show at the Crystal Ballroom on Saturday night. I also have an 8-week-old puppy that has convinced me not to leave her poor, pitiful, helpless self home alone for 4 or 5 hours while we go out carousing. So the tickets must go. I'd like to get what I paid for them ($68.50 for the pair) to put toward the puppy's first vet visit, but I'll consider other offers. I'm in Beaverton but pickup could be arranged downtown if it's more convenient. E-mail if you're interested!

Can anyone recommend an individual health insurance plan for a young (26), fairly healthy (aside from one chronic issue) person? I'm pretty tired of getting ripped off by PSU's lolcoptery "extended student health insurance plan", which refuses to pay for anything anyway. Anything less than what I'm paying now ($172/month) would be good; high deductible is ok. Must be PPO; the main thing I care about is that they won't try to weasel their way out of paying any claims by claiming "it's a pre-existing condition" (even though I have creditable coverage) or sending me forms to ask whether I have other insurance and then claiming they haven't received them (twice!) (which is what PSU's health insurance does).
Thanks in advance!
I'm looking to get my husband an electric razor for Chrisanukkah. If I could get some recommendations, that would be awesome!
Also, I want to get my friend a tea set for her birthday. Where would be a good place to get that? As an aside, it will need to travel to Alaska with me, so nothing too fragile.
But.. this one is actually good..
So, got myself lost not too long ago.. and stumbled upon this place at
16th and Hoyt.. Bar Convivium.. I think is what it was called..
It's a new place - pretty nice and shiny. Their pool table is
free (always nice) and in this crazy loungey private "pool vault"..
The drinks were delicious and the bartenders made me and my lady
friend feel like they were happy to see us, because I'm pretty much
over unfriendly bartenders.
Things I didn't like.. it's a tad bit too bright.. and their jukebox..
had too much hip hop for my taste..
It was nice, so I'm sharing.
It's what I do.
Are they kidding me?
I didn't check my mail at work for TWO DAYS and our mail person took ALL OF THE MAIL to the Post Office and replaced it with one of those "Sorry we missed you!" cards. I called the post office to see if they could redeliver to our doorstep (rather than our box down the street...which they have done before) and the snotty lady there informed me that I would have to come pick up the mail.
She said that because we neglected to check our mail (for TWO DAYS?!?!) they cannot redeliver. What an effing joke.
Honestly, I understand that the post office is really busy this time of year...but isn't EVERYBODY? How is not checking the mail for TWO DAYS considered neglect?

hey, i really want to play some indoor soccer. DID YOU KNOW that you can bounce the ball off the wall in indoor soccer! that totally adds a whole new element to the game! ahhh!
okay, yeah, maybe i'm the only person who was surprised by that revelation.
anyways, does anyone know of some FREE places to play? a community center, perhaps? anyone interested in meeting up for some future games?
(bonus love for N/NE spots.)
Who here knows about Seasonal Affective Disorder?
More importantly, who has it or thinks they have it?
I don't know all of the medical evidence for and against the existence of SAD, but I tend to believe it is a real condition. Mostly because, while I am often tired and lazy, something about it being dark out at 4:30 PM and the fact that my brain and limbs seem to be made out of damp cotton, makes me think it is more than just generic wintertime blues.
Hi, Portland. I'm in Eugene just for the night. I've never been here, aside from hitchhiking through a couple times years ago. What's your favorite place in Eugene to shoot pool, get a drink, dance, wreck mayhem, etc?
yes, i was foolhardy and didn't think to buy tickets early, so i come to you DP looking for a ticket...
one single ticket to get me into the david bazan show tomorrow night at mississippi studios.
maybe you bought one for a friend, but now you're thinking your friend dresses weird or has funky armpit odor and you don't want to be seen with them at a show like this. perhaps they're not vegan enough for you. maybe you just decided to stay home and watch comedy central and eat buttery popcorn and reese's pieces. or your shoes just came untied and you won't have enough time to get them tied back up before tomorrow night. if you want, i can help you come up with more, even better excuses to sell me that ticket. like tomorrow night being the excellent time in the current lunar phase to begin online stalking maggie gyllenhall. [side note: yum a dum dum]
anyway, at this point, you've got all the reasons you need to sell me your ticket - should you have one. if you don't have one, maybe you could help the cause by putting up posters for me in search of my missing ticket. that would be rad.
so, sell me the ticket. i'll even bring you oatmeal raisin cookies [possibly even vegan ones too - not sure] to munch on or give to your friend who now has to stay home. yeah. that's the spirit.

This may seem like a strange question, but does anyone know of a good place to sit and watch the planes take off and land at PDX? I don't need to get, like, pushing tin close, but I'd like to maybe see the runways. I'm not a terrorist or anything, I just like watching planes. Maybe an airport employee with some knowledge of the area? Thanks...
