portland related because portland is weird...
I visited Portland last year and thought it was pretty sweet. Living in central Florida, I have to put up constantly with conservative people and a general feeling of stagnation. On the contrary, I feel like Portland is just the opposite; progressive with many busy bodies doing interesting things. Last Thursday on Alberta Street is amazing. There's no such atmosphere where I live. Therefore, I have decided to move to Portland. I was hoping I could get some tips from some Portlanders when it comes to finding a place to live and work. Some helpful info that I wouldn't find easily by googling would help me as well. For instance, which neighborhoods to look for and which to avoid.
Some info about me: I love music. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and can speak German.
I will be taking the WES today for the very first time. Has anyone else ridden it? I know it's taking me to Tualatin to dogsit which is lame because Tualatin is bleh and I'm concerned about finding my friends apartment/hive when I exit it, but I am happy to be trying the new commuter rail out. So WES? Thumbs up or chopped off?
I am on WES right now. The wifi is fucking flawless and the train is beautiful. Hurray for a success!
So I need a plastic toy machine gun.
The more Tommy-gun-gangster-like, the better.
I'm going to hit up dollar stores and the like today, but by any random chance has anyone seen those around and know of a specific place where they sell them?
What websites do you use to give feedback on a business.
I have done plantfeedback.com and google's review board, but my desire to spread the word is not satisfied.
Anyone else been so moved to do something about bad service besides grumble?
Sadly, I'm leaving Portland indefinitely and researching storage options for some of my possessions: a guitar, possibly a small chair, and let's say 10 cardboard boxes. I'm going to be gone for at least a few months, not sure after that. What storage facilities do you recommend?
A-1 Storage sounds nice but a bit pricey ($58+ for 5x5); I'm not storing anything super valuable so I'm not sure how important security is, and that's their key feature, it seems. You know if storage facilities get broken into a lot?
Public Storage is showing me some pretty good prices ($40-50 for 5x5) -- any reason to distrust them?
I want to take my kids out for ice cream sundaes to celebrate. Where's a good icecream place?
Ben & Jerry's is good - but that's more of a dixie cup of ice cream type place - not a sundae joint.
I have no idea what's going on with mine. My primary source of income is checks from individuals. I have W2s from other employers, though.
Do I have to fill out a separate form in addition to the one that came in the mail to declare the income that I receive from checks?
Portland, I need Cotton Candy ice cream... on a cone or in a container that I can enjoy and make my weekend better. Does anyone know where I can find such ice cream?!
Edit: Baskin Robins claims that it is seasonal because they can't order it...
But I found a coldstone that had it, so I bought a pint with mashmallow, gummy bears and sprinkles... I found god in ice cream.
Thank you SO much for all the help :D
I just got a call from:
And they're pimping the new Velvatine Rabbit movie (whatever that is, I was playing San Andreas when they called).
So DP, any specials or the like going on for Friday the 13th? Portland is that kinda town.
Delicious, Authentic in Portland or Surrounding other than on 82nd?
doesn't have to be fancy...just delicious and authentic...
hey guiz, i am kind of a nerd when it comes to pens, and if there's one thing i've noticed in my pen nerddom, it's that pen selection is COMPLETELY FUCKING RANDOM. i.e. a walgreen's will have a good selection. another walgreen's will have like four non-ballpoint pens, all of which will cost more than your first child. the disabled one.
so, where do all you fellow pen-nerds get your pens'sss's' at?
To make a long story short, I ordered a sweatshirt from an online store in October, and still have not received it. I have asked at least three times for a refund, often dismissed with "Oh it should be there soon we just sent it out," but this time I insisted and here is their reply:
"I wish I could give you a refund but because your item was already sent to you the best I can do is send you either another sweatshirt or items of your choice. Let me know what you'd like to do."
This time last year, I ordered a few CDs from a website, never received them, and was issued a refund. However, I paid for the sweatshirt with Paypal and the CDs with a debit card. I don't know if that makes a difference. Do I have any ground to stand on here?
