So, I'm looking for this certain kind of cigarettes, and since you all seem to know the ins and outs of P-town so well, maybe you could help me...
They're called Nat Sherman Fantasias, and ever since I saw the movie The Dreamers again, I really want to see if they are as lovely as Eva Green makes them out to be. Yes, I totally do exactly what the people in movies do.
I've been looking up some tobacco shops that seem to carry a large selection, but so few of them have websites, so it's hard to know where to look.
ok two questions. first, the best thing to do for skin that is greasy and gets break outs a lot (mostly on my chin). im tired of looking like a high school kid with complexion issues. second, best treatment for cellulite. its not too bad yet but im not ready to embrace it. my mom says im only 25 and ive let myself go. i think thats a load of shit but i dont really want to have a bunch of cellulite.
No, it's not what you think. Get your mind out of the gutter!
Quick! Where in SE can I get an oil change and tire rotation without waiting for long that's not Jiffy Lube or some other ripoff chain? Also, Where can I find hard-core packing supplies, such as would be found at a store devoted to business packing and shipping supplies? I need to mail a laptop and don't have the original packaging. Office Depot, Pak Mail, etc, won't work.
*drinks* in advance!
Does anyone know where I could find a live recording of the Spoon show on Saturday?
My google-fu is weak today apparently because I can't find quite what I'm looking for. Has anyone gone on a ski weekend anywhere in Oregon or Washington (or Idaho, even) and gotten there via Amtrak? I'd need transport, ski rental, lodging, and lift tickets. Any ideas?
for many reasons (not the least of which is my ex boyfriend - again!! ugh), i am leaving portland on thursday.
and i just wanted to say goodbye to everyone.
texas, here i come... all over again.
I'm making a care package for my friend who is in Iraq - a Christmas package to be exact! I have a couple of items already but was wondering if y'all had anything else to add. He's been there since August and is a convoy guard-type thing. He doesn't need anymore books, but I'm sending him some CD's...he likes any kind of music so if you have a SUPERAWESOMEBAND you must recommend, do so! Or some neat trinkets or...really anything. I want him to be entertained. Help me with your brilliance.
Has anyone here attended the OHSU school of nursing? Got anything to say about it (good or bad)? I've been doing a lot of research on their BS and MA programs for nurses and I'd like to hear a few opinions about the programs that don't come directly from the mouths of people who work for OHSU.
On that note, has anyone loved or loathed the other schools of nursing in the Portland area?
I already have a BA in Psych but in the past year I've really been feeling a pull towards nursing, particularly being a Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Cause, you know, I am REALLY looking forward to getting a second undergrad degree so I can pay off student loans until I'm 84...
Anyone know where I can find a lawn gnome in this city? Is there such a place that has a variety of such things? And such? The closerer in the betterrer. Thanks, pals!
I live in SE. Woodstock area. Nice neighborhood. I *thought* safe.
BUT this weekend, someone broke into my car. Specifically smashed the passenger seat small window (next to the roll down window).
I have an alarm, which for some reason did not go off. Ugh.
Anyway, they didn't get much except my beloved iPod that was concealed in the closed center console. Oh and my cell phone charger (yeah I know my fault for leaving it there...)
I'm bummed about that stuff, but really more pissed that now, because of this asshole (and because it's raining)...
...instead of purchasing Christmas gifts, I get to pay to have my F****** window replaced.
So yeah, I can google all day for a glass place near my house, etc... what I am looking for is a recommendation of a place you have used, like, think are reputable, etc. And fair, cost wise.
Help restore my faith in people. And the holidays.
So, my girlfriend is coming to town for Christmas and neither of us will have family in town and get to do whatever we want to do for the holiday. I'd like to do something kind of special with her on Christmas Eve, but am not really sure what. First thought was Bagby Hot Springs, but I've opted against the 2 hour drive and am looking for something within an hour's distance (by car) to do together that night. Help?
What happened to the Velveteria?

Now that I have your attention...
Okay, a weird question I know, but I will love you forever if you can help me!
Does anyone know of an establishment that sells the Spanish (not from Mexico, but from Spain) edition of the magazine FHM? I'm looking for the December issue. Elisa Lazo De Valdez, an amazing photographer from Portland, is featured in this issue. I am also featured in the published photos and I would DIE if I could get my hands on a copy. If you have one I'll even buy it for an inflated price (eh? eh?). So please, feed my relentless narcissism! No, but seriously, I would really like to add this one to my collection and portfolio. And maybe use it to freak out the grandkids someday.
So... any ideas?
so i'm a teensy weensy bit scared of my neighborhood when i take my dog out after dark (clearly my dog is not very ferocious) so i am interested in procuring some pepper spray or something. can anyone tell me where i can buy some in the downtown area? your advice is very much appreciated...
i want to form a self-defense collective! all genders welcome, no genders welcome. maybe we can meet once every week? every two weeks? every month?
oh, and i definitely want to meet in NE. but if you live in other areas, feel free to reply and maybe y'all can form a separate group! then we can have self-defense group battles and see who is the kick assest. oh wow.
contact me at email@example.com if you're interested! <3
EDIT: if you're experienced with self-defense, and would like to share your skills, let me know!
