Now, who's stripping for me?
Going to be moving in to town and I need to know where online (and offline) I can buy concert tickets. Doing a search for ticket places does not do much good as it gives me random nonsense.
*prepares for a duhslap*
Next Monday the 25th my son is arriving in the area for the first time ever (background, i just moved here a few months ago, and my son spends every summer with my parents).
I wasn't very thorough when I bought the ticket, like, I didn't know anything about Portland or the Max.
So he arrives at 11:10 PM
The last Max train leaves at 11:52 he DOES have baggage to claim.
I have been told by someone that it is doable to catch the train because PDX is laid out really well. So here is what I am looking for from you.
--Advice on how to catch it quickly (is there a shuttle or something that I don't know about? I will be researching the layout before I go).
-- what to do if I miss it. I already have a plan, and I want you to confirm/deny it's worth.
plan: I saw no bus routes that would get me home to Beaverton. SO my goal is to get to downtown Portland and take a bus from there (I am being thrifty ok?) I will catch a shared ride van without booking in advance, is that possible here? At LAX they did it. I know because I always booked in advance and we had a bunch of people who did NOT in our van getting dropped off first. If it's not possible, do you have any other options for me? Obviously taking a cab would work, but what else?
Metup is one week from today! That's Tuesday, August 26th, at 7pm at the East Bank Saloon on SE Grand, just past the Morrison Bridge. The meetup faq is here. And I'll actually be there this month! Wowzers.
We er these two datees both enjoy outdoor activities, live music and random acts of fun-ness. Affordable activities are ALWAYS nice.
So smitten kittens, what do you want to do with your suitor this week?
Here's what they looked like at Chez Xeno in early May:
Bearded Iris, or Iris Germanica, is very easy to grow. What it wants most is plenty of room, because it spreads like crazy after a couple of years. It tolerates windy conditions hereabouts, but the blooms will last longer with protection from same. Should be planted so the roots are well-submerged in the ground but the very top of the rhizome is above ground. Let the leaves yellow and die down before clipping them off. Lots of info online available for growing these.
As usual, dp gets first crack before I craigslist 'em. Send me a message if you want some. Thanks.
The prime suspects are an Italian Whole Sub and a premade Chef Salad both packed yesterday at Winco Foods Deli in Beaverton. I've had both of these foods numerous times before without problem, but something in this batch made me very sick. I'm going to call Winco and let them know (so if they get other complains they act on them).
Anyone else I should notify? Is there a local government food safety org? Thanks.
Does anyone know of any local screen printing shop that sells screen hinges? I know I can find most of the supplies at the art stores but some supplies only screen printing shops have.
Any help here? Anyone know of a local shop I can get some quality supplies from?
Also if anyone has any supplies they want to get rid of. I'm on the search for some hinges to make a one color press and table set-up. Anything else I can take off your hands would be cool as well.
Help a printer out yo?
1) I really need a massage, beyond what my boyfriend can do. I have scoliosis and back issues from being rear ended so I really need someone to work out the knots. I may even go a few times rather than just once. Any recommendations for someone in SW Portland, or downtown? I live up by St. Vincents and work downtown. The people I used to go to were in Clackamas or in Eugene and gas is too expensive.
2) What is the course of action one should take if they plan on driving to the Sunset TC and see the "Lot Full" sign upon arrival? It was my first time commuting that way today and I luckily managed to find a spot, but besides getting there way earlier than I need to, is there somewhere nearby to park (maybe the hospital?). I feel like I am asking a stupid question, but really, this must happen to people every day!
Subject: Contraception is abortion?
I had to share something with you. Can you imagine living in a place where birth control is considered an "abortion" and health insurers won't cover it? Where even rape victims are denied emergency contraception?
It seems unbelievable, but the Bush Administration is quietly trying to redefine "abortion" to include birth control. The Houston Chronicle says this could wipe out dozens of state laws that protect women's reproductive freedom and protect rape victims. And this proposed "rule change" doesn't need congressional approval.
I just signed a message to Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, whose department is considering this rule change, telling him: "Contraception is NOT abortion." Can you add your voice to this cause? Click here to sign the message: http://pol.moveon.org/contraception/?r_by=-10087594-hUr8jmx&rc=paste
I'm looking for everything, here: referrals, resumes, portfolios, whatever. We're thinking something flash-based, ideally. Post your stuff in a comment or e-mail it to will (at) reversedlensphotography (dot) com. If we like the stuff you post, we'll get in touch and talk about specific ideas.
Pay is negotiable depending on your experience and how much we like your work.

I thought maybe it would be fun if I posted a word or expressiion that we use back home (Australia) and see who of my fellow DPs can guess it's meaning (no google fu help tho). Just a fun way to share a bit of my culture with folks.
Portland related bc I'm an Aussie living in Portland? :oD
Expression: Crack a fat
It's so annoying when people move here and then bitch about the weather. Man, it is what it is! Deal with it.
Fuck that noise. Bill is rolling in his grave right about now.
How much can I expect to pay for such a service?
Thank you for your time.
P.S.: Proximity to the airport is A+.
Edit: I already called Airlink and they are having software issues unlocking this phone right now.
I've been digging around and it seems like most places have crap for selection (e.g., REI) or are ridiculously overpriced (River City Bikes is mostly $300 shoes... wtf?).
I just need something cheap that I can drill some cleats into. Is there a decent place around town or is shopping online the best bet? If online, does anyone recommend a specific site?
Let me know your experiences with doggie doors and what you recommend, I'm all ears!
So why do the cashiers at Fred Meyer act so put out when I bring them in? It isn't like I keep them hidden until they've already bagged everything only to whip them out and start screeching like a harpy. I even keep my mouth shut and re-bag away from the check stand hen they don't bother putting cold foods in the insulated bag.
I know cashiering can be a really shitty job, but the way the cashier today started tossing my food and bags around you'd think I'd just killed a puppy in front of him.
I have this craving I can't seem to shake!
tips on good places to look besides those sites? machines you recommend or ones i should avoid? have one you want to get rid of that works well?
EDIT: lokidecat came to the rescue. i can always count on him. also he is strangely domestic.
It reminds me of the first time my grandma spent two months of social security on a large paper weight with a monitor.
If you're responsible, please come forward.
I'm a 40 DD and I'm not rolling in the dough.
---also, what's the deal with sex shops here? which places are best?
I'm specifically looking for somewhere with a good collection of dildos of the strap-onnable variety.
Scott is looking for a gang to play this with, including bluffing and snarkiness to non partners during a rubber or whatever a round is called. (I said I've refused to learn it). Need 3 to 5 people, betting for low stakes money ok, m&m bets okay, just points fine. Would also need a public local for this group to meet and be obnoxious - preferably near SE.
If you already know a) the rules and b) how to bluff, please post. Chime in if you're interested in one game or a series - once we get y'all in touch, you can work it out.
I'll likely be dragging Scott to the Meetup next week: should he have a deck in his pocket?
