I don't think they exist here but:
Are there any 24 hour retail stores in Portland? When I first moved here I was baffled to see that Fred Meyer closed at 11. Then even more confused when I saw that Wal-Mart closed at 11.
What venues/groups/etc. should a young writer who is completely bored with life consider to spice things up? Actually, let's go beyond writing--clubs? Classes? Fun things to do on a rainy Wednesday night? Give me your suggestions, you damn Portlanders you! I have realized that, what with the onset of yet another winter (in the words of Peanuts' Lucy) "you need involvement, Charlie Brown!" So tell me--how should I get involved?
I've talked to you guys before about looking for my dog, and now I have some dog questions.
I was planning on crate training my dog, but apparently this is 'cruel'. I've read lots of sites that say crate training can help with your dogs stress levels, when done correctly. I don't plan on leaving my dog in it's crate for more than 8-9 hours at a time, and this would only been when I'm not home.
Have you crate trained your dog? How did it go?
does anyone know where one could buy a light box (a light therapy box, like an apollo go-lite)? Costco is not an option ($50 to be a member? you must be joking). Anywhere downtown or in SE would be perfect but, really, anywhere at all accessible by trimet would work. This is way harder than I thought it would be. Even several medical supply stores have told me that they don't have light boxes. I could just order online, but I would really prefer to buy it in a store.
I flushed my phone down the toilet. Yes, all the way down. No, it didn't come back up. Does any one have a verizon phone they would love to give me? Either for free or for cheap? I dont care what it is, or anything of that sort. I just want a phone!
Greetings Mighty Portlanders,
So I'm searching the Central Library catalog and I'm looking for books on the subject of the After Life. I'm politely corrected by the computer saying that term is not used for that category and they use the term Future Life.
This amuses me. Is future life the new politcally correct term for after life?
in your experiences, where are the best places to go for free/low-cost health care??
i currently don't have insurance and i'm running low on my meds - how do i get new prescriptions??
( i'm on the kind of things that it would be unhealthy to simply stop taking.)
thank you kindly,
I'm having a bitch of a time finding an online listing of places for rent that aren't in complexes. My boyfriend is very firm on two things: that we don't live in a complex, and that we can have a dog. Even craigslist is a bust. We're moving in about three weeks (but I will be in Portland and able to actually go look at places on Monday). Help?
Knitting tonight - hosted at my home - 7 to 9:30pm.

I watched 3 of my good friends at work get laid off today, in the most undignified manner.
Manager walks them in, stands at their cubicle while they pack up their stuff, and escorts them out the door.
All three guys were in tears.
I felt like I needed to throw up all day. And I hate myself for the ingrained cutthroat survivalist inside me still thinking "Well, at least it wasn't me!"
My friend and I have a cat named Alyx that we just cannot take care of anymore. She's blind and overweight and not "adoptable."
We really need to find someone willing to take her in and take care of her. She's a sweet kitty, but she's just too much for us to handle.
I've called the PAWS and the Cat Adoption Team, as well as the Oregon Humane Society and Multnomah and Washington County Animal Services, but none of them have been able to help us. All of the no-kill shelters I've called say they're full and can't help us.
Anyone know of someone who might take her or have any suggestions?
Breakfast downtown? I haven't gripped this concept much. I always always eat on the eastside. Any place you might know of that has some veggie options and is tasty?
Thank you for your answers!
Dannybear feels a little weird today too. I need some DP lovin'/hatin'.
i'm gettin married on december 21st.
we are having a friend who is an ordained minister (universal life church) marry us.
anyone have any suggestions on rad (indoor...december is cold), reasonably priced places to get murried? allowance of alcohol is an absolute must.
So this might sound like a dumb question, or racist or whatever. But it's not racist (lol, I'm part Asian and my bf is Mexican, or puerto Rican or whatever, plus my ex luva was mixed).
Ok, so, I am looking to move to a new city.
one of my friends told me that their are no black people in Portland. I find that really hard to believe, btu as someone who has lived in Detroit for all her life surrounded by black people, i am kind of curious to see what it is like to live in a place where they don't exist.
please dont get mad at me for asking, like i said, its not a racist thing, I just want to know what its LIKE. i personally like black people for a lot of different reasons, I am just a curious person is all.
so can you tell me if this is true or is my friend just messing with me?
