What's your break up cure?
Chocolate, alcohol? Dirty, sexy one night stands?
I ponder my options.
I am thinking about getting a massage for my hubbie for Vday. Unlike me he doesn't like the "get in there hard and deep" type massage so I am not sure where to go. I'm also looking for a place that isn't too feminine, but it doesn't have to be "manly man" either. (He isn't into alcohal or sports for instance.)
Anyplace downtown, North, or close in NE or SE would be fine.
Here's a morning quiz for you:
What does Yankee Doodle call "Macaroni?" The pony, his hat, or the feather? And why?
Yankee Doodle went to town, a-riding on his pony; he stuck a feather in his cap and called it Macaroni
I am in the market for business cards and was hoping for some advice. I have heard mixed reviews about the quality of ones ordered from vistaprint.com so thought I would see if anyone here had ordered from them before.
I am also hoping to order some business cards for a non profit that I work with. Does anyone know of a local place (or place online) that offers good quality business cards at a discount for non profits?
Thanks in advance for your help,
So, I want to start running again, and I need to find a gym because honestly, I am a wimp about running in "the elements." I'd like to save that for when I'm past the wheezing dying "OH GOD WHY" out of shape phase. I'm hoping maybe you wise DPeeps can recommend one that fits some of my preferred specifications:
1. Cheap (no signup fee would be awesome but I would settle for a cheap monthly fee.)
2. As close to Sellwood as possible (at least in SE)
3. Not a place for hardbodies to hook up in the locker room
4. Won't try to sell me 500 different kinds of power bars and merchandise
5. Won't make me stick to a stupid routine
I used to go to the gym at SW community center and it was awesome, but it was expensive and too far from my house. I have been to the 24 hour fitness downtown (meat market, hard-sell employees) and the Curves in Multnomah Village (stupid routine, far away). Is there any place that will let me hang out on a treadmill for less than 30 bucks a month in SE? Help me, DP oracle!
I am on a mission to figure out someone's date of death by searching for an obituary. I know the person's name, address, dob, ss# and how and where he died, I just don't know when he died.
So far I have left a message for his family, I've googled the social security death index, local newspaper obituaries that are available online and I asked the public library to research on my behalf as well.
Is there any more I can do, DP?
Let me start by saying I love my cat very much. I really do.
Now that the little Booger doesn't shit on the floor anymore, we have other problems to address...
1: How do you keep the little a-hole off the kitchen counter when I'm not at home?
2: How do I keep him from waking me up at 2am to be fed when he has plenty of food?
3: Would it be incredibly awful of me to send him away to some kitty overnight camp (cat boarding place) for a night or two so I can have some piece and quiet around my house (and some romantic time without being watched).
I would love nothing more then 1 day of being able to walk from one end of the house to the other with out doing the drunk kitty shuffle to avoid stepping on him or kicking him. Oh! And to be able to open up the fridge without him being in the way.
Is there any hope for my sanity? Please advise!
Can anyone tell me which one of these spots is the best, or maybe just review a few of them for me? I'm planning a getaway with my girlfriend. I'd like to rent a yurt but I don't know which ones of these places is a) close, and b) lovely. Safe for a couple of girls is also something to consider.
I am trying to find any awesome Coraline merch... does anyone know where I could find Coraline shirts or anything???
Someone had suggested Comic book stores, but I'm a bit of a recluse and hate to journey around without cause, so if anyone has spotted anything while they've been geeking out, tell me?
Portland related because geeks rock hardcore and Coraline was made here?
My tax returns to the state were accepted today. How long does it take to get a check from good ol' Salem?
Any recommendations on smoke shops in the NW or Downtown area, where i can buy pipe tobacco?
I have a dilemma. My father paid for my community college tuition this year, and considering I went full time, it's a pretty substantial amount. However, he can't claim me as a dependent since I don't live with him at least half the year and I provide for myself by all means other than education. Therefore, he can't get any sort of tax break on paying tuition. Is there any way to get some sort of tax refund from this? Can I claim it? Or would that be a huge red flag to the IRS?
A real friend stabs you in the front.

I created my LJ at 3am. I must have been bored or sad that night or something.
I want to do something weird or strange this weekend.
I guess what I'd really like is something like a "mystery spot" or "tourist trap" of some sort that is within 2 hours of Portland. Since the weather doesn't look too spectacular this weekend, I'd prefer it if it didn't involve being outside all day, although if it's something really cool or really weird, I can put up with it.
Yes, I know this is similar to the post about ruins, but I am not necessarily looking for ruins or hiking as much as I'm looking for a stupid way to spend a gloomy winter weekend day (since I have an extra one this weekend and all).
Bonus points if it isn't vegan.
Well, this is my first post and I'll see how it goes. Not really sure what this community is for but it looks like for random Portland-ie advice.
So I love my old hairstylist, but I can no longer afford her $50.00 + haircuts :(. Does anyone know of a good hair stylist who can cut hair for $35.00 or under?
My style is punky, emo, rawker style. I'd be forever in your debt if someone could recommend a good stylist to me!
Thanks in advance you damnportlanders. :P
Alright damned portlanders. I was at a brew pub last week and a lady bartender refused payment on a beer and said it was on the house.
Was this a case of
1. She suspected I was drunk, and didn't want to **sell** me a beer
2. A good faith marketing campaign, meant to ensure my future participation in drinking here
3. She's into me
Answer should be in the form of a question, although any insight is welcome.
DP, I need your help!
I moved away some years ago, and I'm making my not-quite-annual holiday back up to P-town next month. Now, it's been a while since I've been up, let along long enough to actually have some fun. You see, I moved to Las Vegas, which is the most deceptively boring city on the planet. Worse, this city has not heard of the words techno, electro, or raves.
Where can I go, between March 9-17th, to have a good time with loud music, glowsticks, and flashy lights? None of that hip-hop pop trash the radios pretend is dance music, but proper dance music. I want to be out until four in the morning, and return to wherever I'm crashing that particular night absolutely knackered.
Close to bus/train routes is a plus, since I've never bothered learning to drive (do the taxis still accept visa up there? They STILL don't down here, and I hate it).
