I had to take my cat to Dove Lewis last night and when I brought him home I must have dropped all the paperwork and all my cash next to my car when I got out. This morning some random bicyclist knocked on my door and handed it back to me. He actually had to get off his bike, take off his helmet and walk up to my door. It seriously made me want to cry after the night I had.
Thank you Mr. Random Cyclist...you made my day brighter! (On a side note, those Dove Lewis folks deserve sainthood for what they deal with. I saw a dog come in while I was there whose spay site had opened up...doesn't sound like she made it)
My girlfriend and I are planning a little weekend getaway up to Seattle this summer. Do you all have any suggestions for decent hotels? I found The Moore to be an interesting place, any other places you guys might recommend like that, that isn't outrageously expensive?
Thanks for the help~!~
So my friend and I are going to Sasquatch (pause for a moment for a SQUEE!!!! I'm excited). Anyway, we're going all three days and camping out as well. I'm looking for any advice anyone here can give me as neither of us have gone there overnight. Bascially, camp basics we wouldn't be able to figure out just looking at the website or any advice people have from experience!
Aka - best food to bring, best way to keep food cool, bring a grille/yay or nay, campfires, do's & don'ts, etc.
Also, it says the campsite is open 24 hours before the concert...does that mean you can actually go there and get all set up too? I'd prefere to drive up Friday night and get set up versus a Saturday morning drive...
And anything else anyone would like to add, that's neat too.
update: Train's still there, covering half of oak street. Still no flaggers either, even though people are forced to go into the other lane to go around and pedestrians have to walk in the street. Kind worried someone's going to get hit
Been 11:00 - 2:11 now.
Oh wise DP folks, I come to you for guidance...
Every year my dragonboat team (Stumptown) hosts some of the Victoria, BC teams that come down for the Rose Festival races. Saturday nights we always have a combined team dinner, where the Stumpies pay for the visiting teams (and then they pay for us when we go up to the Victoria races). My grand question is...
Where are there good, reasonably priced places for 50ish (+/- 10) people to eat (preferably Chinese) food in Portland?
What are your favourite Chinese restaurants?
(I can just call and see if they do large groups)
This morning while I was stopped at a red light in my car, a bicyclist, using the bike lane, passed right by me and rode through the red light.
Is this legal?
Do you drink any Coca-Cola products in either 1 litre bottles or 20 oz bottles? If so, can I have the red caps off of them? I need a shitpotload of them for a project that I'm working on.
Leave me a comment on how you would like to get them to me. I'll even come and pick them up if you'd like!
Thanks for your help!
Did a little research online and discovered that it's a "Common Jumping Spider". At least that's what I think it was as it matched several pictures of others (black, little white speck on its rear, about the size of a quarter, etc.).
I've been living in my current home for about 5 years. I've seen many typical brown house spiders (hopefully not the dreaded Hobo Spider), and even one or two Black Widows... but NEVER have I ever seen one of these big guys in my home before?!? Luckily, it crawled out the window and went on its merry way after a few minutes. As creepy as spiders and all other bugs are, I really don't like killing them unless absolutely necessary... I mean, ya can't blame a bug for being a bug, right? =\
Anyway... with the weather now warming up, I guess it's that time of year for these creepy little crawlers to come out to play. Any other DP'rs out there seen an increase in spider activity within their homes of late?
If anyone knows her, get in touch with me, I got some mail for her that looks pretty important
No, I want a milk crate for my vast and quick growing record collection, ya dig? Or if anyone has one, wanna barter?
I might go garage sailing, but I'm not up for leaving the all that much to go look for pointless things I could bother the damn masses of portland to tell me directly where to go.

ANY idea where I can find Trimet merch?? It HAS to be out there, I've searched google and trimet website, no luck.
Are there any IT-specific temp agencies for Portland? I've got quite a bit of experience in a bunch of IT fields, but I'm going to school for something else and one of my jobs has stopped paying me. I could really use some relevant work that would fit my schedule. Alternatively, I wouldn't mind doing generic office work or slaving in a datacenter if they would match my availability hours.
Anyone else been in a similar boat?
