NS vs. WF

I just got a twitter response from Whole Foods after I sent a few tweets their way.

Basically they sent me to Natural Specialty Foods Memo where one of the WF employee's responded to what's going on with New Seasons.

Rental history.

I'm trying to get a hold of my rental history. I haven't had my name on an apartment for about 6 months to a year now, but my payments were always on time (save for once or twice in the span of 3 years) so I'm assuming it's pretty good. I would like it so that I can use it to help me get a new place. I've been looking around online, and all I've been getting is 'how to get an apartment with bad credit'.

I tried calling the complex I last lived at, but they haven't called me back.

Concert Tickets!

Hello everyone! I need to sell my Katy Perry tickets. Plans were inadvertently made by the person who was meant to be going with me, and I'd like to recover the money if I can. The concert is January 26th at the Crystal Ballroom at 7:30 pm, general admission. I have two tickets, $25 a piece. We even bought cherry chapstick! Come on, you know you want to go. The floor is bouncy! Please?

repost - rare instrument stolen

REPOST>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Date: Dec 3, 2008 4:14 AM
Subject: MY IGIL WAS STOLEN LAST NIGHT $500 REWARD
Body: Hello. My name's Enrique Ugalde. I am a throat singer who's studied the ancient art of "Khoomei" with Masters in Central Asia (Tuva). This last Summer, I competed in the International Throat Singing Symposium where I won Third place. With my winnings, I had HAND MADE for me by the best Tuvan Instrument maker Aldar Tamdyn an IGIL. This BOWED instrument is the throat singer's companion.



It is a VERY distinct instrument. Dark green stained with a majestic HORSE HEAD carved onto the top has 2 strings which are actually bundles of fishing line.



Last night my Igil was STOLEN from my van from SE Hawthorne and 46th in front of DINGO's. I believe the person who took it mistook it for a guitar as it was in a guitar gig bag. The only money to be had from such a rare instrument would be to maybe the four people in the US who know what it is and how to play it. PLEASE PLEASE if you have any information about my beloved IGIL, please contact me @ soriah23@yahoo.com.


THERE IS A $500 REWARD FOR IT'S SAFE RETURN!!!

Travel agency question

Are there any (preferably local) travel agencies that allow you to purchase gift certificates which can eventually be redeemed for airfare, hotels, cruises, etc, in any combination?

ETA: Bonus points if you actually work for an agency! :D

Jesus Christ Superstar

I went last night to the production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Schnitz and my head still hurts.  If you've got tickets for tonight's performance, I recommend unloading them AQAP.  It was a bad performance even for a travelling show.  Of course, parts of the show were great.  The woman who played Mary Magdalene was fantastic, dynamic and a great singer, but the guy who played Jesus was 60 years old if he was a day.  I found myself gripping my arm rests every time he tried to hit a big note....hoping that he would actually hit it.  It was such a let down for me because I really like the music.

This is just being forwarded, although I plan to be at the Square, freezing. I still think we should do Pirates v. Ninjas sometime soon.

Hey friends,

Portland Improv is hosting a free event called the Portland Freeze on December 13th, and we want you to be there. If you've never heard of it, read on, and if you have, please notice that the TIME and LOCATION have CHANGED.

Here's the official new info:
- Saturday, December 13th, 12pm.
- Meet at Waterfront Park near Morrison & Naito Pkwy.
- We gather and walk six blocks to Pioneer Courthouse Square for the Freeze.

The mission: We want as many people as possible to freeze in place for 5 minutes within Pioneer Courthouse Square. We're attempting to set a world record here; currently we have 3000+ confirmed guests, and we want you there too!

Here's what we need from you:
- Forward this message along to all of your friends, family, anyone and everyone you know in the Portland area! A technical glitch has rendered us unable to message our confirmed guests about the event changes, so we are relying on you all completely to get the message out! Call and text your friends, post a link to our event page as your status, do whatever it takes!
- Follow the link below to our official event page to update your RSVP status and see videos of previous freezes from around the world.

Thanks so much, we'll be seeing you there!

LG enV phone CAR charger for sale

I have an LG enV (the first one) CAR charger that I got right before my enV broke and I went to the enV2 and so I have an essentially brand new phone charger that I can't news and need to get rid of, so I'm willing to sell it and meet someone somewhere and give it to them for $10-$15 or best offer since brand new they're about $29.99...

I live in Tigard, but I'll meet someone in Portland to get it gone! And if ever anyone has problems, I know you won't even need the receipt to take it back.

DP secret buttons

We can get 200 1" buttons (like pin on buttons) with any graphic or logo on them for about $25.

We need a secret mysterious symbol or logo, then we can have secret society meetup at, say, OMSI after dark.

Anyone else think this is a good idea?

Is there a DP logo?

Want Glass?

Anyone interested in a couple boxfuls of stained glass pieces of a wide range of colors, textures, and sizes (for free)? I'd be open to folks picking through, but I'd really rather get rid of the bunch in one swell foop.

ETA: Tentatively claimed.

random question: does anyone know where I can get lab work done for a relatively cheap price? I am paying out of pocket  (no insurance) and need to get blood work done. Places I have called (free clinics in Vancouver, over where I work), have a 6 week waiting period. I need it done this week!

Thanks a bunch!
