I broke my classes last night, my only pair, and need to find alternatives sometime today.
I'll need to get my eyes checked again (since I don't have my current prescription) and then I'll need to have a place with a selection of saddle-bridge glasses. On top of all that, I'm insurance-free, and hoping to remain relatively economical (I'm expecting to come away something like $200 lighter).
Anyone out there have any recommendations?
I need to get a bunch of Asian field recordings off of MiniDiscs and onto the computer so I can make cool songs with them.
Having a newer NetMD walkman that allows upload would make this go much, much faster. Older NetMD minidisc walkmans do not support this.
What you get: you can have my Sony MiniDisc home deck, with remote! Works fine but makes an annoyed clicking sound if there's no disc in the slot. Not a big deal as far as I can tell. It's this or I'm taking it to Goodwill; I'm getting out of the MiniDisc format.
I would just record the samples into the computer digitally, but my MiniDisc gear only has optical digital outs and my stupid DAW interface only has RCA type digital ins, and I don't want to pay $100 for a converter I'll use once. Plus that will take hours.
I know it's a long shot but hey, that's what DPers is best at, right?
I liked the various references to using science for decision-making - give me the facts! What was your favorite theme?
for something to do to celebrate the inauguration tonight! under 21 & in SE, if possible. are any restaurants doing anything? so far all i've found are pubs & the laughing planet in NoPo.
I've run into a bit of a problem with my latest craft project. I bought everything I needed to make terrariums except the plants, and I've been to two Fred Meyer's and a Home Depot and none of them are selling the sort of plants I need - or any plants, really. I assume this is due to the cold weather, something that didn't cross my mind before I jumped headlong into terrarium planning. Are other nurseries and whatnot selling any plants right now, or do they just shut down in the wintertime? I'm looking for slow-growing plants which don't require much sun, like mosses and ferns and whatnot. I'm in Sellwood but am willing to travel a bit.
I need your help!
I have searched high and low for a replacement 12" x 2 1/2" light strip (not just the bulb - the whole strip that sits on the hood) for my 10 gallon hexagonal fish aquarium (as opposed to a reptile aquarium) and am having no luck at local pop shops or the big box stores (which I'd rather not buy from.)
Are these aquariums really that outdated?
Yes, I have looked online, and not only is the selection very meager, I would like to buy it local so I can check it out first.
Do any of you li'l hex tank owners have a hook-up for me?
Many thanks from me and my shrimpses and fishes! :)
I'm looking for a good therapist in close-in SE/NE Portland, downtown would also work if they're awesome enough.
I would prefer a woman, and not really specializing anything in particular besides anxiety/stress management and sleeping issues, and someone who isn't just going to try to immediately prescribe a bunch of anti-depressants instead of helping get to the root of the issues.
I know it can be hard to find a therapist who is the right match, but any first hand experience would be great, especially if you have/had been seeing them for a long period of time.
Any insight would be helpful. Thanksss.
PS Yay Obama.
Presidential Luncheon was to much for Ted Kennedy. He collapsed in what appears to be a seizure while our new President was out of the room.
Let's hope that he's okay. It would be horrible for this day to be tainted.
On demand movie recommendations?
Has anyone had any socialism yet?
I want some wealth redistributed to me!
What going on people! I'm back into portland...I'm thinking about going to the crystal ballroom for that tonight. What else is goin on...I'm missin' out! let me know.
I am looking to score a plain black suit for $10 or less. Can anyone recommend a thrift shop where I might have a good chance of accomplishing this? Preferably in inner SE or downtown (or, failing that, MAX-accessible.)
I need a new dentist, and I am in a different network (UnitedHealthcare Dental if anyone has the same) than my previous network.
I'm not picky, just need a good, solid dentist that won't drill/destroy me, and I feel this would be a good place to get some names! And I'll check if they are in my provider network.
Any area around Portland is fine!
So, toss those names at me? Thanks!
While watching the inauguration this morning (from 4-6 am, then I couldn't stay awake any longer) on KATU, there were news breaks every once in a while in which I saw a few times that there is a recall for snack foods with peanut butter in them. Probably a stupid question but does this count for jars of peanut butter as well?
does actually this exist?
i overheard some people talking about it on the bus...
any idea where it is or how much it costs?
Can anyone recommend an amazing real estate agent in Portland?
Edited to add: Looking for a buyer's agent, specifically. I would also appreciate any insight from experience on whether you think it's worth the costs to not handle it yourself. Thanks!
There used to be a place in North Portland/St. John's that had aikido classes but it was also a writer's corner too. I can not seem to find it anymore. Does anyone know the name and if it still exists?
Ah, I found it myself. It is this aikido place: http://www.ecoledebudo.com/
and this writer's dojo http://www.writersdojo.org/
So now I guess the question is: do you or anyone you know go to either of these? Would you recommend it?
Someone recently asked about the Lush Henna hair color. I have been dying to color my born again virgin hair but haven't because of the chemicals! EEEK! So now I see Lush.. I have a amazon gift card and I am just going to GO FOR IT.
Ok so I want the Reddest red there is.
Does anyone know which is the reddest?
*edit* gosh darn it RIGHT after i posted this I realized it SAID right under that which one is the most red!
Anyways before I go ahead and purchase this I'd like to hear anyones thoughts on the Lush Henna products. I am going for the Caca Rouge.
On a related note, if anyones looking for som great 100% natural shampoo, I got ToadStool Soaps as a Xmas gift and the shampoo is great. I have been trying to find a all natural shampoo (and yes I know about No-Poo) for 4 years and Toadstool soaps is the first to actually pull me in. It lathers like a regular shampoo. I haven't used any conditioner but as long as I wait for my hair to be dry before I brush it then it's smooooth.
Dear D P,
I have some scrap metal I'd like to get rid of. Any suggestions on where is best to drop off the metal for maximal $s, minimal strife near SW? Anyone know how much I get per pound?
I found a notebook on the bus today, on a 56 to be precise.
It's a black notebook with white dots.
Anyways. I tried to find identifying information within it, but to no avail. The part that says "This Journal Belongs To..." is cleverly blank.
So tell me what sort of things are written in this note book and I will return it! Or make you come get it. We obviously live are off the same bus line.
Anyways. Hope you find it. It looks important.
