i've done it a couple times when i was younger but damn me if this weather doesn't seem like a good reason to bring back the past.
what i'm looking for are some suggestions for good grassy hills around town.

all you pet owners, please remember to look after your pets in the heat, make sure they stay hydrated and stuff. the heat sucks for them too.

Hello. I'm moving back to Portland after a few years away. I was going to stay with people I knew but that fell through. While I do not have a job there yet I would find one as soon as I was able to even if I have to clean toilets.
I'm 33 years old. I'm a non-smoker and non-drinker, and do not do drugs of any sort. I'm not into parties and don't even know lots of people to invite over even if I wanted to, which I don't. I have no pets or children. And I am certifiably sane though somewhat eccentric.
Mostly I'm intent on making the remaining tuition money to pay for my last two courses at UC Davis for winter quarter. I will be heading back down there in late December. It's a long story...but I can explain if you need me to.
I do have the money for moving into a place. I have ok credit and no criminal background. I arrive on Monday and need to find a place by the end of the month. Sooner is better than later. Oh, and the place has to be near a bus line because I do not have a car.
where can i find some camo netting? army surplus or imitation, doesn't matter.
Have any of you been to Casa Diablo? What did you think of it?
I went there last night and had a great time. The drinks were the stiffest I've had. And the girls, well, they have a loose idea of what customer/dancer boundries are. I would kinda like to see what the place could do if they had more people in there.
Damnportlanders, please come get drunk with me in the industrial area. Thank you!
Early last week I dyed part of my hair a color not found in nature for the first time. For a day or two, it was bright, arterial spray red. A few days later, it was sort of fuchsia, and today it is bubblegum pink. The dye I used said the color would last 4-6 weeks. My friend tells me the color faded quickly because I wash my hair too often, but I work and can't go days without bathing. Does permanent bright red hairdye exist? How do all of you alternatively hairstyled DPers keep your colored coiffure true?
Hi again. I feel like I'm flooding this community with requests, but at least they're not housing- or job-related, right?
I want to start kayaking. I've done some before (mostly on rivers and never whitewater) but would like to do more. A few questions:
- Any recommendations as to clubs/groups that do a fair number of outings?
- I don't own a kayak, which means renting one seems to be necessary. Most rental places then require some proof that you know what you're doing. I figure it wouldn't hurt for me to take an introductory class (mostly for wet exits). Is one place better than most, in your experience?
- Best/cheapest place to rent a kayak?
- Are there better places to learn river kayaking vs. whitewater?
BONUS: best outdoor places to go swimming this weekend?
So the hottest part of today is supposed to be between 3pm and 7pm, as per the usual trend of Portland weather. But why? I'm a former MassHole who's been in PDX for about 4 years. Back east the hottest part of the day was actually the middle of the day -11am to 2pm- when the sun was highest, and it made sense. I find myself quite disgruntled about it still being super sweatacular after dinner time. WTF Willamette valley!?
Well at least PDX doesn't have the crazy humidity a la New England.... and there's WAY more coastline for sharing around these parts.
This is a question for all you art people out there:
What is the best and preferably affordable place to get prints done of art work?
I'm also looking for a place that will scan 11x17 originals without hurting them. Maybe somewhere I could handle them myself even?
Any recommendations or the opposite (if you had a bad experience with somewhere please let me know) would be more than helpful. Thanks in advance...
someone email me an mp3 of baby got back
I need it for sopabox tomorrow

A few months ago The Mercury ran a story that rounded up several dance nights in town. In a sidebar/call-out section they mentioned some warehouse style dance party happening in North or Northeast Portland on a regular basis. I recycled the issue in question and haven't had any luck digging up any information online.
Does anyone know of/remember the details of this event, or am I making stuff up again?
Time for the Friday No-Life Club to Commence.
Post whatever moves your heart.
Every day, I wake up knowing this day could be the perfect day...and every day, due to something trivial, it is not. And then I get up every day the same.
And that is why I have no life. But it doesn't bother me too much at all!
well, i fell in the river and hurt myself & i cant go to the nico muhly /sam amidon show tonight at the aladdin
it's going to be really good
does anyone want my ticket
and my phone is dead?
leave a msg here and let me know !
imagine what summer in portland would be like if you could safely swim in the willamette river.
To whoever it was that posted about the open interviews for the Nines hotel.... THANK YOU! I wouldn't have heard about it, otherwise (somehow I overlooked it when last checking craigslist). Instead, I took the chance that I had enough time before my shift at my current job and went.
And got hired as part of the housekeeping staff.
I won't start until october when the hotel opens, but that's actually perfect for me, as I have an out of state trip planned for end of september. I'm thrilled to know that I have a full time job lined up in the near future, as I was beginning to worry that I wouldn't have money for bills or even christmas.
So again, thank you for posting about it!
Anyone else go, and if you did did you have any luck?
Did anyone else have any idea of the phenomenon that is Olympic speed walking?
I got home from work,drank a few beers, answered a few e-mails, looked up and saw a herd of multi colored short shorts
power walking around the track... fists thrusting and all... amazing.
