i want to get an old photograph blown up and framed for my dad for christmas. where should i get this done?
i lived in SE for the first two years i lived in portland. that whole time, i was working on Hawthorne and 34th and, when i moved to inner SE (26th and ash), frequenting the establishments on stark and 28th (mojo's, the bonfire) and on belmont and hawthorne (i <3 powell's and excalibur).
now i live on 20th and broadway, close enough that i can still drive to SE for coffee and drinks and shopping. although i've finally broken away from the Hawthorne fred meyer's (at least they made that easy). i'm also not working on Hawthorne anymore, and i go to school at PCC cascade, so it sure feels silly to keep going back to SE when it's so out of my way and i'm sure there are things here and in north portland that i would fall in love with if i knew about them.
so, thanks for reading and please tell me:
1. have you experienced this? having a hard time leaving the neighborhood you're used to after moving away from it?
2. can anyone recommend to me a good coffee shop, bar and/or bookstore in the area i live now? (NE broadway and 20th, or anywhere thereabouts)
x-posted to all the usual places, sorry if you get this more than once. ~ C
HFC Albuterol Inhaler
Eventually there came a time when one of my severely asthmatic friends was a around and either out of theirs or I felt I didn't need it and gave it away.
Then a year ago I got a nasty cold and my friend from Chicago gave me one of these:
CFC Alburterol Inhaler
It was amazing. He said it was because they didn't make them anymore as they hurt the earth with their evil Chloroflouro-somethin's.
Anyway, this morning I awoke with some discomfort and I went to my pharmacy drawer to discover it missing. I asked my severely asthmatic friends and roommate if I'd perhaps given it to them in a state of drunkenness, but they all said no. Now DP, I don't know what I did with it, or even if I did anything with it, but it's definitely gone. I need another one.
I do not have health insurance any longer and that prescription is so old, I don't know that I'd get prescribed one even if I asked. I don't need them that often, but they really help when I do.
I'm hoping today I can stumble across one of those antique babies. Pinching my lucky rabbit's foot as we speak.
I'm trying to put together some mix-CDs for a road trip and would love to fill them up with shiny new songs - not literally necessarily "NEW" (as in just came out, new) but maybe just new to me. Or stuff I haven't thought about/heard for a long time, or just forgot about or something.
So hey, what are you listening to these days? What's your favorite song/band right now? I'm a fan of all kinds of music, pretty much - probably not so much techno or black metal for a road trip, but any other suggestions would pretty much be great. Suggest things! I need your excellent taste!
Thanks in advance, you're the best :-)
1. Cheap (it's annoying to pay a buck-a-wing and it's not even a whole wing! It's half a wing!)
3. Good Sauce
4. Not out in the boone-toolies (right now my favorite wings are at the Zig Zag Inn in Zig Zag, OR but they are a buck a pop!)
I want to gorge on delicious wing-a-lings! Help!
So, anyone want to take a Wilton class with me? It's the Wilton 1 beginner class, so you don't have to have any cake decorating skills going in. It's a 4 week series with classes on Thursday nights at 6:30 starting January 8, 2009. I've already paid the registration fee, so you'd only have to buy supplies, and I've got a 30% off one item coupon you can use for the class kit. The class is at the Joann store in Eastport Plaza on SE 82nd.
