Hello helpful DP...
I keep hearing talk about people snow shoeing out to little cabins on mt. hood... and I cant seem to find what they are talking about!
Do any of you know where/how to rent a small/affordable cabin for a night?
Any help is greatly appreciated!!
So the news and some analysts are saying that the price of gas could easily hit $4 by summer. I know that some of you could give a flying rats ass about this fact and that I'm a fool because I own a car and am part of the problem, yadda yadda yadda. A F and an U along with a couple other consonants is all I have to so to them...
Sorry, back to my point.
The country is gripped in the fear of the Great Beast called recession, the Feds are going to cut interest rates AGAIN, consumer confidence is low, food prices up, and then there is the whole housing thing. I need my car to cart around my 23 month old kid around town and so just using my bike is not an option really. With oil companies doing the whole Scrooge McDuck and swimming in profits, what do you feel we can do about this?
I'm sure there will be those that say DON'T BUY GAS ON SUCH-IN-SUCH DAY! That does nothing then hurt local business owners as gas stations make pennies on filling up your tank. Have any of the current political monkey's that are shooting for top poop flinger made any statements about our current economic woes other then they'll fix it? Congress did a consumer study about 8 months ago or so with concerns of price gouging at the pumps, but Big Oil got off like Bonds' Home run record.
sorry, I'm just ranting...
Anyone else frustrated like me?
Okay, this is a really stupid question because I've been there a few times, but I'm having an aneurysm and can't remember the name of the place.
What is that little restaurant (can't even remember where, but I *believe* it's within reasonable walking distance of Ember's club) that has pictures of some famous people on the walls, has a jukebox in the back, and when you go in the bathroom, the walls are completely plastered with clippings and graffiti?
I feel so lame for not remembering the name of the place. They have breakfast, sandwiches, lots of things with hummus. There's a counter on your right when you enter, and...I'm sure someone knows the place by now.
the Roxy...duh. I'm so stupid sometimes, but I'll make shifty eyes and blame it on the, uh...papers I've had to write for classes. yeah, that's it. *slinks away*
I'm in need of where to buy a possibly large amount of white medical gauze. Or that stuff that sticks to itself that the Red Cross puts on you after you've given blood. Can also be used for supporting sprained ankles. And no, I do not need Ace bandages.
I need it for a costume. Leeloo from 5th Element to be exact, and since I do not have the 130 dollars to spend on the costume online, I'mma make it myself! I was thinking about using bondage tape, but I haven't found anywhere in Portland that sells it in white. Hot pink, black, red, orange even, but not white.
I need it by 11 o clock pm, this Saturday, as it is going to be my costume for Rocky's Fuck With Your Character Night. Which you should all go to. And buy a lapdance. We do that now, we auction off lapdances and the money goes to us, the Cabaret, so we can buy better costumes and repair our woebegone props. Help us out, get some hot chicks grinding on you!
But all that aside, where could I get these things? In large amounts. I'm not big, but I don't want there to be a chance of nipples or my bajingo showing, which means lots of layers.
Does anybody know where I can take scuba diving lessons around here? Yes, I have googled a list but I'm curious if anybody has been to any of the places (Looking at Pacific Watersports and Underwater Works but open to others).
I know there is one place by PCC Sylvania. Anybody have any first hand recommendations?
I have a vehicle and am willing to travel although I live on the West side so that's best.
This may sound like a dumb question, but are there other cable companies besides Comcast around here? After 35 years without cable, I'm giving in to my primordial urge to watch Discovery. I can't seem to find any alternatives to Comcast, unless I want satellite, which I don't.
anyone know who in the portland area has some really good ethiopian harrar coffee beans (whole not pre-ground)? and by "in the portland area," i just mean available to buy in the portland area, not necessarily portland-based, though i'd prefer it be a roaster in the pacific nw.
I am sniffling and coughing in my office, and yet it's insanely bee-YOO-tee-full outside.
Please tell me some of you are out there frolicking. I need to vicariously frolic.
That is all.
Oregon definitely grows on you. If you told me 5 years ago that I'd be shopping for groceries in reusable bags, building a compost container, insulating my house with recycled materials and only buying biodegradable cleaning supplies, I may not have believed you.
Unfortunately, while we are all for going green, we inherited some definitely NOT earth-friendly stuff when we bought the house. Under a sink we discovered years-worth of harsh cleaning supplies and chemicals. We will never use this stuff, but I cringe at the thought of dumping them down the drain to pollute some stream or potentially cause a toxic cloud of smoke to rise out of the sink.
Does anyone know if there is a safe place to dispose of such items? We have lots of Drain-O, Ammonia-filled floor and glass cleaners, a giant CostCo-sized bottle of bleach, among other toxic things.
Ok, so i took a few pictures of the portland skyline, they are BEAUTIFUL.. and printed them 12x 18 to hang in my bedroom.. problem is i didn't think 12x18 frames were so hard to come by. So now your help, where is the best custom framing place to get these framed. Not *to* expensive would be nice to.
Any of y'all ever been to Queer Bait at Crush? How is it? (I miss Booty...)
I would like to get a dining room table. I decided that I wanted to have Japanese style dining with a low table and cushions for seats. I figured I would find a coffee table to service this purpose. However, I've had a hell of a time finding a coffee table low enough to not be awkward. Any ideas on where I might find something like this? I don't recall seeing any sort of Asian furniture stores in Portland.
Does "Last Thursday" exist in the wintertime? If I were to go to Alberta tonight would I see lots of cool things to show to my friend who has never been to it before?
WHY DIDN'T ANYONE REMIND ME ABOUT THE MEETUP. GAWD.
i wanted to talk about boobs and penises more. =[
I had a great time. The chase scene was my favorite part.
I just got an apartment here but I don't think I'm good enough at dumpster diving to get furniture here. Should I go to a surplus place or check Craigslist?
Also, are there any panaderias, carnecerias, or mercados here? I need a comal, molcajete, and maybe some baked goods and I don't want to have my grandma shipping her stuff here.
So, I have some computer speakers here that are kind of crappy. They make a crackling noise, but they work. I forget what brand they are. Anyway, I upgraded like woah so if anyone wants some free speakers, let me know. You can either pick em up sometime, or if you go to PCC rock creek I can give them to you at school. Or I can meet you somewhere. But I am very busy what with work and school, so am only willing to go someplace close to home, which would be Hillsboro. Another option is I tell you when I work and where and you pick them up there. Meh. I just don't want to throw them away when they work just fine, they just have that silly noise.
