MY STOMACH IS EXPLODING COURTESY OF MUCHAS GRACIAS (on n.e. Weidler). All I can say is they are not worth it. I was once fooled by the temptation of 24 hour Mexican but the Iraq war going down in my stomach ala Carne Asada Burritoz is NOT worth the trouble and NOT cute. Please stick to La Bonita on Alberta or any other assorted Taqueria on the EAST SIDE.
MUCHAS HELL TO THE NO!!!
Anyone interested in buying my 2 general adm. tickets to Dave Matthews at the Gorge 8/31 and a camping pass?
$48.50/ticket and $40 for camping pass but asking for $125.
I bought the tickets before I planned my honeymoon (uh..oops) and we can't go.
Posted on craigslist but I thought I would ask you fine Portland people.
email me ambienthotcake @ hotmail . com
Have a happy and a healthy. !
I'm looking for an affordable and clean place for a manicure and/or pedicure without an appointment. Vancouver locations preferable but will accept North Portland as well.
where is the best place to get cheap seventies looking non-prescription glasses in portland, ladies and gentlemen.
Where's the best vegan brunch place in Portland?
Long story short, I'm going through my granddad's stuff and I have about five pounds of stamps he collected, starting from around the 30s to the 70s. I really want them out of the house but don't want just to throw them away. Is there a place I can sell them to, or an artist depot I can drop them off at?
So, there's a few lovely little rust spots on the car I'm getting from a friend and I'd like to make them purty.
I hear one needs to only take some sandpaper to them to smooth them out, seal them with something, and then get some matching paint and VOILA. while not perfect, certainly not rusty.
SO, DP! Where in portland can I get the appropriate sandpaper, sealant and a little tube of AUTOMOBILE paint? The car isn't a normal color (kind of a copper) so I don't mind paying some extra for having it matched.
p.s. i dont want to use nailpolish.
p.p.s. Is there an easy way to get stickers off the back of cars? I really didn't ever go to the California Maritime Academy.
So I sprained my ankle a few days ago at work, didn't realize it, and have been walking on it even though I knew something felt wrong, but I wasn't incapacitated so I didn't take time off of work. It's swollen and just now starting to bruise, but it's looking to be cooking up to be a good one.
What I'm wondering is should I file a report with work since it happened AT work, or should I just let it slide? I've been told (at work) that Worker's Comp is only for times when I get cut badly, something breaks, or something happens that causes me to have to take time off of work while I heal; so just making a note along the lines of, " So yeah, I tripped over the floor mat behind the register and I sprained my ankle..." wouldn't be out of place, would it?
This entry brought to you by the shaved head girl who works at the 170th and TV Highway Plaid Pantry that cards everyone under the sun.
ETA: Alright, general consensus is that I'm silly, should have read the handbook a little bit more, and I should file. I will do so when I go into work tomorrow, although it probably won't get dealt with until next week when my manager gets back from vacation.
If any ya'll are in Beaverton, drop by and say hi. I'll sell you booze and cigarettes. ( If you're old enough, that is! :P)
the taco stand at the corner of SE 50th and division, brought tears to my eyes.
they have the best damn nachos EVER.
Tomorrow, the boyfriend and I are doing a family dinner with his family and we're going to Noho's Hawaiian Cafe. We've never been. We've seen the menu online, which is fine... but we were wondering if anyone has been there before and had any experiences they'd like to share?
Thank you all knowledgeable DP. :)
PS. It seems like every idiot is out in the Portland area today.
If only I could just stay inside.
Is anyone else noticing this?
Is there a good electronics/hardware store downtown where I can buy breadboards, LEDs, ICs, headers, sushi, capacitors, and other implements of doom?
Yup, I'm going North. Anyone have working Amtrak promotional codes to share?
I'm just curious to know what people think about Burgerville. They always have ads about how sustainable they are and how they use fresh and local products, but do people even notice that stuff? I don't eat there, so I don't know, but... Does it actually taste better? Do you make an effort to go there because it is more "sustainable" fast food?
Anybody else going to the matinee of Phantom of the Opera tomorrow? I'm taking my daughters...
Are there any especially wonderful places in Portland in which to drink tea and lounge comfortably? I'm looking for pillows, soft surfaces, and soft lightning. None of this "booth" or uncomfortable chair business.
Help me find my happy (tea) place, Portland.
Definite positive review for Rumpspankers on NE Dekum near 7th.
They're the laid-back coffee and breakfast place that Random Order once was, before the hipsters and their loud, battle-stroller-led fashion acces...er, offspring took the place over. And they don't charge for the coffee refill, either (something Random Order instituted).
Where downtown can I find a decent selection of second hand men's suits? The fiance and I are going to Tony Strlight's tomorrow with some friends and he ripped his suit pants. I have the task of finding a suit to fit him without him being present. I'm taking a tape measure with me and plan to hit:
- Ray's Ragtime
- The Avalon
I love the weather
I love spiked sun tea
I hate the loud little kitties in the pool
I hate people breaking plans
I love talking to random strangers online
I love my lap top
I hate pointless posts... like this one
I hate not getting respnses for my resume
I love the color orange
I love nachos
I hate mosquitos
I hate the smell of repellent
I love the the rain
I love boats
Im bored cant ya tell? I think i just made quite a few conversation starters... let it roll....
-1 copy since we bought it, so, yeah, 19 copies
Excellent Customer Service
AT&T Wireless :
High Pricing w/ Lots of add-on prices
MUCH MUCH more limited hours of Customer Service, Not too willing to be "helpful"
The famed 3G service seems to have very limited coverage right now
Your opinions, experiences, advice, etc?
So.. I have a problem with anger.. And I've tried to google for local anger management meetings and classes but I'm not finding what I need.
I'm looking for meetings that are free or at least cost very little that are availible in the mornings or later in the evenings. Just something I can go to once or twice a week.
If not a meeting them maybe some therapy? I'm not sure if my insurance covers that, I work minimun wage at a shitty job but I have Kaiser.. Is there cheap therapy or am I asking for too much?
I couldn't even find an english anger management comm on LJ, the only thing I found was for Russians..
I'm tired of feeling like a monster and pushing my friends and family away. I just need some help. Please don't snark me.
EDIT: Thanks to everyone for the encouragement and suggestions. I called Kaiser this morning and had to go through a phone assesment, where they determined therapy was a good idea(well duh). I was referred to a therapist at Western Psychiatric and I have an appointment next week. Thanks again, I really appreciate everyone that offered help and not douche baggary.
Ok - so after having one guy flake out on me, I am turning to DP for recommendations on Hardwood Floor Refinishing. It's not too complicated - we have basic floors, although they are face nailed. Any recommendations would be great. thanks!
calling on portland-biker-folk:
my bike chain snapped off while i was riding tonight. i ride to work and back daily and need to fix this asap, but my knowledge of bikes/repairs is next to nil. must the chain be replaced? fixed? can i do it quickly and simply or should i just roll into the shop up the street (alberta cycling center) and have them do it for me? time is an issue and my tolerance for screwing with the thing is low -- so what's my best bet?
Ok, so I'm not currently living in Portland, but this is the most active community I belong to, and ya'll have great answers (even when they're snarky!) And I really need some help.
Lets say something very very bad happened at my apartment complex this week. How would I go about finding out more information? It wasn't on the news or anything, but it involved quite a few police officers and stuff. The whole situation is sort of a mystery, and very confusing, since I only have snippets of info but I have no idea where to even start looking. I tried local news websites and googling the date and key words (Bellevue, Washington, suicide, homicide, etc).. is there a website somewhere that logs 911 calls or anything?
Sorry for sounding like an idiot, but I'm still a little freaked out and worried that I might have witnessed something I didn't realize I witnessed, since there were a lot of really strange things going on in the days surrounding the incident.
Thank you for your help!
I've been doing a lot of job searching lately. Some of the jobs I've been interested in have requirements for WPM and KSPH. I was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere online where I could test myself. I could guess, but if I could get a more accurate answer, I'd feel more comfortable. I know that some of the employers test you before hiring you, but I'd still like to know before I claim something and embarrass myself. When I was in grade school we had Mario Teaches Typing and Mavis Beacon, which told us our WPM, but I don't have access to either of those now.
