Which comedian said "Money can't buy happiness...but it can buy a jet-ski. Try to frown on a jet-ski." or something to that effect?
This is bugging me and I must know.
EDIT: I realized right before falling asleep that it was Daniel Tosh, and a Wave Runner, not a jet-ski.
Ever have one of those weird moments of clarity between consciousness and unconsciousness?
My kid's old 2gb iPod Nano has gone and died. It's done. I feel weird just chucking it in the trash. How should I dispose of it?
My birthday is coming up in August and I traditionally throw a huge theme party of some kind, but this year I'm coming up short for ideas. I've looked on party planning sites but all their suggestions are cheesy and overdone. I can always default to a red-and-black party, but I'd love to do something a bit more creative and offbeat.
So DP, what theme parties have you thrown or attended that were particularly awesome?
... you ask DP!
Gang, I need recs for the best third-party software to rip data from an iPod to a Mac.
Hey there -
Anybody know someplace around town where one can buy one of those small plastic cylinders that when turned over sounds like a cow mooing? Tried Finnegan's and Lippman's already. In N. Portland, but can travel, though not too far out, I hope.
ETA: Found at Kids at Heart. OMSI had a cheap not-cow-sounding one that was similar but not up to snuff.
so dp, my first pet just got some bad news and she's on her way out. im having a hard time knowing that her days are numbered, but since she has anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, i have a while to get used to the idea.
what did you do when your first pet died? how did you memorialize them in your lives? and more specifically, have any of you had to go through adrenal disease with a ferret? thanks dp
So I need awesome sushi place recommendations for Friday night. But it's a bit of a business meeting, so I need not just any awesome sushi place. I need, in order:
- Delicious, delicious sushi that will please sushi aficiandos (I'm not, but they are)
- Quiet, uncramped setting (I know, hard to find on a Friday, but being able to hear = plus!)
- Close-to-city-center location
A good friend highly suggested Hiroshi but citysearch reviews have me worried about the quiet/uncramped part. I will only have three people. Help, anybodys
EDIT: The moving-train/bar thing is not really what I'm looking for either. Me needs a sit-down-and-order place.
Why does the closest SmartPark to the Crystal close at 7 PM?! Come on, Portland, I thought we were hip night owls. :(
(Ninja edit: anyone else going to balkan beat box tonight?)
Hey, I'm looking to take some Chinese language classes but I don't know where to find any. I want the complete deal: writing, reading, speaking. PCC only has conversation classes and PSU would charge me over $800 for only three weeks of Chinese I. Are there any other options? Thanks for your help.
(In case it matters, I used to take classes when I was a kid but I've forgotten almost everything and so need to start from scratch.)
does anyone know the website for Roventes Pizza in SE?
I'm having some trouble finding it on my own.
Is there anywhere here in Portland that sells/brews Chicory Coffee? I was going to order a can off of Cafe Du Monde's website, but I'd love it if I could find it locally.
Does anyone know where I can locally buy water kefir grains and get a kombucha scoby? I know there are a lot of places online but I would rather get them locally. I have tried Craigslist but I only found one or two adds for kombucha and one was in Mcminnville.
Thanks for the help..
Seeing as how I'm a sadly ignorant soul, could anyone note Portland apartment complexes or landlords to stay as far away from as possible? I'm apartment-hunting, but don't want to end up somewhere awful, and all the apartment feedback sites I've seen don't help, being stuffed with both "THIS IS GREAT" and "THIS IS HORRIBLE" reviews for just about everywhere.
Alternately, but less easily, might anyone recommend good studio or 1-bedroom apartments reasonably near downtown? I'd be comfortable ending up with rent of up to $600 or so, maybe a little more, but I certainly wouldn't complain about less. I mainly just want somewhere with good AC/heating (edit: well, heating more, I can stick an air conditioner in a window if I have to), a good bathroom, laundry on site, and thick enough walls I can fiddle with guitar playing without getting complained at.
Gasp! I'm late! Y'all know the drill, right?
1. Tell me two positive things that happened to you in this past week, no matter how small.
2. Tell me what your favourite meal ever is and/or best meal ever would be!
(And responses will come tomorrow afternoon as I work at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning!)
I have been informed by the anti-gay-marriage lobby that, as a man and a woman, my friend & I are endowed with the full legal and moral sanctity required to get married for health insurance. How does one go about making a prenup happen? I think we're planning on filing jointly for our taxes, but we want our assets to remain separate...ie, I don't have a claim on the house he will come into ownership of, my bank account is not his, we're not responsible for each other's student loans, etc...Can I get prefab things that I can make easy customizations to?
