The Other would like to know where to get a good hot dog in this town. Apparently, it's not a true hot dog experience if someone doesn't make it for you in a vaguely restaurant-like setting. The only thing I can think of is Annie's on TV Highway, and that's a bit far out. And do they even have hot dogs anymore? Please'n'thanks!
Also, HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE (who doesn't have to work making hot dogs for the rest of us).
I'd like some information on your car commute time if you:
Live in North Portland/St John's and commute to Tigard or Tualatin or,
Live in deep NE and commute to Tigard or Tualatin--how bad is I-84?
Or if you know of any website that has commute time statistics for particular routes...I am failing at Google.
I know this has been asked a lot before, but I can't find any previous posts, so: where can I get a good haircut? I have thick (in the sense that there's a lot of it) long hair that I would like layered, if it makes a difference. I usually go to Dirty Little Secret, but I need an appointment today or tomorrow morning. Where should I go?
On days like today the girl and I get a little antsy but we are drawing blanks about what to go out and do today. Suggestions? Events we might be unaware of?
I need some wedding song suggestions! For the recessional, and for the reception.
For the recessional, I want something upbeat, and maybe a more recent pop/country song.
For the reception, I want songs that are fun, romantic, both slow and upbeat, but not cliched.
I refuse to have The Chicken Dance, anything by Aretha Franklin or Sister Sledge, or a number of those other wedding cliche songs played.
Enjoying a vanilla bean latte & a buttermilk muffin at the Portland Coffeehouse. Yes, I am now one of those people you see at the coffeehouse, typing away on their laptop.
YES. I have a Starbucks cup. I got it because it has a lid and a handle. I can carry it while using my walker... Do you have a problem with that?
Did I post about my wanderings yesterday? I wandered around much of downtown. It was actually fun just wandering. I do tend to go in circles a lot, though. It started off relatively fairly warm... which was good, because I only had one glove in my basket.It was ok though, the other one was in my room.
Thought about taking in a show last night, but decided against it. Picked up a Caterpillar Roll for dinner, on my way back to the hotel. Changed walker feet and ate. Called my mom and played on LJ for the rest of the night.
I check out of this hotel on Monday. *sigh* The other one isn't so well located.... but I won't think about it now. I'm reminded that I don't really know anyone here that I can call to hang out with. Considered going out to a bar, but I'm not big on hanging out in bars, since I'm not a big drinker.
My boyfriend and I are coming down from Seattle in a few weeks to hang out for the weekend. We are riding the amtrak in, and continuing to rely on public transit to get from the station to a hotel and then around town. Can anyone point us in the direction of a couple cheap but clean places to stay in town?
We are staying just one night, and we don't really need any amenities beyond a clean bed and shower. We would prefer to be in downtown to keep it easy to get around (within a couple blocks of bus and rail lines), and are hoping to get away with spending under $100.
I've been searching online for awhile but no websites that ive found make it easy to search by being near public transportation.
(p.s. I'm guessing this is the main pdx lj community. If there is another one where this question would be better asked, just let me know!)
No fancy footwork please. This song requires full body movement Portland...
I know people ask about it all the time, but combing through the archives i'm not finding much and giving up and asking yet again-
Friends in town, we are looking for a tasty, not too expensive brunch that is both vegan and meat-lover friendly, preferably on the east side (but west of 205 :) and ideally without lines going out the door as we can't do reservations.
Any recommendations? I live right near Pambiche but suspect that the super long lines there most of the time means that it would take FOREVER to get seating for four around 11am.
I just found out that the wedding I'm attending next weekend is *gasp* FORMAL ATTIRE. I know, ouch.
Anyway I spent about 3 hours tearing through the mall today with no luck. My problem is that I'm short and slim and end up being directed to the Junior's section wherever I go. Have you seen the "prom" dresses in Juniors? Not good considering I'm nearly 30. And have adult braces. I don't want to look 12 years old please. And it's not prom season really, so not good and not plentiful.
Any advice as to where I should go? Am I missing a great formal attire store outside of the mall?
talking about pedophiles is not a good way to pick up a woman.
So I went to the DMV today to renew my license. Last time I did it, they just gave me a sticker. This time, they took my license, took my picture, and sent me on my way with a paper "interim" license. I am flying to Vegas next saturday for my birthday (also the expiration date of said license) and am a bit concerned about getting past the ticket counter and the security checkpoint with this thing, should my permanent one not arrive before I leave. All the lady at the DMV could tell me was "they can choose to accept it or not." Which is also what their website said. Anyone have experience flying with a temporary license as ID? Also note this is my only picture ID. I do have my social security card and birth certificate as well, but am hesitant to bring those things to Vegas...
Uh thank you, thank you very much...
After strolling the downtown area, lurking in the library, and old town the past few Saturdays in a row. Today was my indoor day, and the weather decided to agree with my decision. Yet my Saturday was quickly absorbed by the following programming : Episodes 12-24 of Fate / Stay Night, Spiderman 2, 45 mins of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, 3 episodes of Serial Experiment Lain, and finally Cowboy Bebop. All the whlie, I was rereading old comic book scripts to try and a jumpstart the creative juices and surfed the internet for random crap and sports updates.
And this is where my Saturday went, hopefully someone accomplished something more productive than I did today?
