So, how many graveyard workers are on here? Do yall get tired of being stuck at home on your nights off at 3 am when all your friends & lovers are sleeping and nothing is open? Cause I do. Maybe we should have a club.
1) I just bought the most beautiful desk and I need to transport it 7 blocks to my house but I don't want to pay the store $20 to have it moved. Someone want to lend me your car and do it with me? I will buy you lunch! Or a lot of Saint Cupcake!
2) Advantis credit union - flyering my house w/ offers of a checking account with unheard of 6.25% APY and ATM fee refunds. Guys. IS THERE A CATCH?!
So I went to see Believers, by Fever Theatre last night. I thought it was pretty great. Fever is pretty excellent at giving a unique theatre experience. Doc was pretty excited about it too, and after the show she decided we should be a part of something bigger.
So, the question is . . . are there any good local cults in the area for us to join?
Since the last roommate I found on LJ has worked out so swimmingly, I'm putting out the call again:
We have a room available immediately! Live in N Portland, in a 4-bedroom/2-bathroom house, just a few blocks from the MAX Yellow Line, with 3 males and 1 female (all mid-20s/early-30s). Tons of storage space in the basement, so no worries if you have some extra stuff.
$500/mo covers rent and utilities, including wireless internet. No pets allowed, unfortunately. Shout if interested!
I've been listening to the radio and all of the massive Obama vs. Clinton snarking.
Why, I wonder, after this last Presidency, is America so ready to step right into another one? I really think we should take a break. This guy treated us like shit for eight years. Why are we so ready to let someone else hurt us? Maybe we should just give up the election scene for awhile and try to find out who we really are. Take some time off; get out more. Maybe we aren't even really a Democratic Republic! Did we ever think of that? Maybe Presidents just don't do it for us. I think we just need some "us" time before jumping right into another Presidency. That's all.
Yo, punkish Portlanders!
Where can I buy Special Effects hair dye? Bonus if they're open after seven tonight; double-bonus if they're in the Southeast...
I am looking for realtors who cater to close in SE and Sellwood, anyone own in those areas and have a realtor to suggest?
Time for a couple of drinks at the Standard. You stay classy, Portland Oregon.
Hey, damnportlanders, long time listener, first time caller, etc.
I am considering the purchase of a WWII RAF greatcoat, but it's a rather spendy purchase for me and I'd like to try one on rather than order blind online. Any hints on where I might find these for sale in our fine city? Bonus points if they happen to sell them on the cheapish end of the spectrum.
Thanks in advance.
I want my tax refund. I want it yesterday. Who can I go to get my taxes filed, and my refund as soon as possible without a certain metaphor involving unwanted sexual advances?
HEY DAMN PORTLANDERS!
I have an idea for everyone! Since we all see that we waste christmas lights every year, I propose we all gather our dead light strands and converge in one spot, connect them together, and make a huge ball and protest what a waste it is for all the money we spend yearly to replace the crap ones we buy.
Anyone in on it with me? Lets find a spot, advertise and set to work on this, perhaps we'll make another crazy landmark and KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD! Lets go for the Guiness Book of World Records.
Leave a comment and we'll start a committee for it!
Where are the best places in Portland to get recycled/free paint?
I want to paint several large rooms in my house and each room will need several coats of paint as well as some tlc because the people who painted might been smoking something funny, because the job they did is terrible. I'm trying to do a bunch of projects as resourcefully (read: cheap) and as well as I possibly can so I'd like to find a place that gets rid of perfectly good paint for cheap or free.
Have any of you added the pigment to your own paint before?
If I can get light paint I know there are colorants I can add to achieve hopefully close to the color I desire. Can you offer me any advice? I don't want to spend a lot of money, but I also don't want to do a shit job and regret starting this project.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
