Foodwise... favorite guilty pleasure?
I like to dip random things in tartar sauce.
So ... I'm having a wicked jones to play some air hockey.
My google-fu hasn't pulled up any air hockey places (is it too much liability anymore?). Just found various places with video games and pinball. Can you help a girl out? Know of anywhere?
A note for employers:
When conducting interviews, try to be on time. I realize that sometimes it's not possible, but at least be respectful enough to notify the person waiting that you are running behind.
My time is just as valuable as yours and it's disrespectful for you to make me wait 40 minutes past my interview time especially when I show up early (5-10 minutes), without acknowledging it.
The past three interviews I've been on have done this. If we as prospective employees have rules to follow, you as a prospective employer should have some too. Yes, I need a job...but it doesn't mean this is acceptable.
Has anyone been to or know someone who goes to the Body Bistro in St Johns? I live really close to it and I've never been. I only know one person who went there to get her hair done, but I'm 29 with a spike-y dyke-y style (hair and fashion wise), and she's in her mid 60s and shops at LL Bean, so while she raved about how they did her hair, I still have a little trepidation because I can't find a single review for them using the Googles. I picked up a service guide at a local coffee shop and it says that they offer highlights with a haircut starting at $40, which sounds like it's too good to be true. Maybe I'm out of touch with today's salon/spa pricing. Anyway, if anyone could give a yay or nay, I'd be much obliged.
Posting this on behalf of a colleague, if you're interested be sure to email him (address included in posting).
Looking for an affordable acting class?
My name is Phillip M. Meyer. I am an experienced actor, director, and acting coach. I have noticed that there are very few opportunities for people on a budget to take an acting class, and I would like to remedy that situation.
I am offering an acting workshop class based largely in scene-study work and collaborative critique. There are three separate classes that I am offering that would address different levels and issues in scene work. The sequence would begin in May, and would be every Saturday for eight weeks at 602 NE Prescott St. Below is a description of the class levels that I am offering.
College Prep for High School Students – (Max students: 12) [Cost: $150]
This is an eight-week introduction class into undergraduate college-level acting. One session per week, two hours per session. Students who take this course must be willing to work on their scenes outside of class at least one day per week. The course will be an active, hands-on lesson in the basics of structure and tempo of a scene, as well as Stanaslavski character analysis. Students who complete this class should be ready for most freshman undergraduate acting sequences. There will be a showcase performance at the final week of the class.
Advanced Scene-Study: Modern Styles – (Max Students: 8) [Cost: $150]
This is an eight-week scene-study class that will focus on writers from the 1950’s to present. One session per week, two hours per session. Each student will shape and perform two scenes. Students who take this course must be willing to work on their scenes outside of class at least one day per week. Pieces will be performed twice for the class, and then performed in a showcase at the final week.
Audition Workshop – (Max Students: 6) [Cost: $80]
This is a four-week workshop in shaping and refining your audition monologues. One day per week, two hours per day. Students who register for this must have two memorized monologues – one comedic, one dramatic – one classical, one modern – ready to be worked and shaped in front of a class of peers. We will work together to shape each other’s pieces, as well as work transitions, composure, and pre-presentation.
Students who enjoy this audition workshop may sign up for another four-week session that follows this one at the price of $50. They would be required to have two different monologues to work, however, the set-up of the class would be the same.
Private audition coaching is also available at $20 a session.
If you are interested, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or to request a slot for the class that you wish to take.

Where do you get your tattoos?
Anyone know of artists that are especially good at text?
Does anyone know where I can get ducklings in Portland? I'm looking for females who will lay, preferably.
