There's snow everywhere! Why haven't I seen any seen any posts about it?
It seems like there should, at least, be something on the news, right?
Any thoughts and personal experiences about quality and pricing of various photo developers that allow you to submit pictures online for in-store pickup? Walgreens, Costco, ......., ....... ?
Be safe this weekend, everybody... the weather could get nasty (er).
what are DPers getting for their dads this holiday giving season? i can't think of a damn thing to give mine....
Anyone going to Meadows this weekend? I will pitch in for gas.
There had to be at least one - and since we've covered dads...
What does a girl get her guy
... of a year who were technically "on a break" (a la Rachel and Ross)
... but are now getting back together.
I'm drawing blanks. Especially since my budgetary allowance is very slim this year!
Is chocolate covered bacon and a BJ really going to cut it?
Is anyone else that is on the Verizon wireless network where all those guys follow you around everywhere you go having problems with text messaging? My girlfriend and I are both on Verizon and can usually send each other loooooooooong text messages and they usually get delivered in the course of a minute. Lately, as in the last couple of days, it has been we can not send long ones. The receiver gets only the first 160 like someone on a different carrier would. Also, some messages take EIGHT (8) HOURS TO SEND!!! Any news?
Okay, DPers... My mom is in town and I'd like to find something fun to do with her. Any ideas for things going on around town? Anything besides dinner, drinks and a movie???
I need a tree
SE 39th and Hawthy
On the cheap and close by, I'm gonna hafta put it in my hatchback so it's gonna be cold.
Muchas Gracias Jesus lovers, consumers AND the unemployed
Okay, I know this is the second box post in, umm, two days, but mine is a little different: Anyone know where I can get small boxes for free or dirt cheap? In N/NE Portland? USPS friendly boxes, big enough for a few books? Dumpster recommendations are welcome! THANKS! <3<4<5
Time for the FNNLC to recommence!
I am sure we will have even more people here now, because its too fucking cold and wet to go outside.
Maybe it is the day to catch up on my cleaning?
I remember a post about bakeries recently but I had trouble locating in when sifting through recent posts, but I, too, am searching for a bakery. Specifically, a bakery that has wicked good eclairs and is not off-the-wall expensive. Downtown-area is the best, but if the eclairs warrant raves and lip-smacking, I am willing to go far and wide within Portland. Suggestions? A link to the previous post?
Hey, I apologize if this has already been asked, but does anyone know of an outdoor ice rink anywhere serviced by trimet?
I just received word that my younger brother lost control of his car (he goes to OSU and was trying to drive to Newport to see my folks) over Cline Hill. He's OK, and was only going about 30 MPH, but his junker college car is totaled, and apparently, it's a real mess weather-wise right now especially around Cline Hill (past Blodgett). It looks like the Sheriff and the tow truck company are rescuing him.
If you're headed home that way (and I know some of you have family that way)- be super careful, and take advisories and precautions seriously. I don't count my brother among the most pragmatic of individuals, however, so I really can't vouch for his preparedness or experience level as a driver...
And, if you are a good driver, watch out for unpragamatic, dubiously prepared and experienced drivers such as my brother.
EDIT - apparently, he did have chains. eep!
I am in Arizona. Our flight is for Sunday evening home to dear PDX.
No matter what, our car is certainly under a bunch of snow and ice at PDX no matter what we do.
Based on current weather forcasts and what you see outside...
Come home Sunday night as planned?
Delay a day and come home Monday?
I am guessing the drive from the airport home will be the hardest part of the entire travel experience, getting the snow out of the parking lot should suck roundly, since it will be after 10 pm and we have a 16 month old. Our only option is really the same flight each day, coming home around 10 pm.
Help me DP, I can't decide if I should fly or not on Sunday and you guys can see what is really going on back home better than me! I will have to change our tix very soon to be sure to be able to change them!
OMG SNOW ONOEZ
Does anyone know if Saburo's is open on Christmas Eve? I can't find a phone number for it, there's none on the website =/
Has anybody else close in on the east side been having shitty speed from Qwest lately?
They claimed their fiber rollout (FTTN, actually ADSLx2 or whatever) was going to happen here by the end of the year. There is a billboard for fiber service blocks from my house, and I still can't get it. WHEN CAN I HAVE FAST INTERBUTTS PLZ THX.
Is anyone else sick of the snow yet?
What's everyone's opinion of it stopping before Christmas? I'd really like to spend Christmas with my family, but I can't if we can't get up to their big-arse hill and they can't get down to us!
