 I got this in my email - don't have twitter myself, but i figured i'd pass it along.

If anyone is on Twitter, set your location to Tehran and your time zone to GMT +3.30. Security forces are hunting for bloggers using location/timezone searches. The more people at this location, the more of a logjam it creates for forces trying to shut Iranians' access to the internet down. Cut & paste & pass it on...


I live in Salem and we're looking to hire a musician (preferrably strings?) to perform at our wedding. It is on July 11 in the early evening. Only would need you/them/everyone for the ceremony. My fiance's mom said she would take care of it and recently told me she never got around to it. :P

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, too. Thanks

Best bike for a bike n00b?

Dear DP bike gurus,
If you were considering buying a bike and hadn't ridden one in a good 10 years and wanted something basic and comfortable for street riding, general commuting and maybe some easy trails, what would you recommend? I found this post that recommends shops to check out, but I'm more curious about specific models and brands. I'd ideally like to find something for under $500.

(Side note: I'm surprised there aren't any bike related posts in the memories section.)

Speakin' of the Serenity screening...

who wants to go for the price of a drink or two?

i won tickets, but, of course, the people i'd bring are all out of town this weekend...(tickets come in pairs, so just one wasn't an option)

so! details: my tickets are for the 1130 screening, and if needed, we can work out transportation (as in, i can pick you up/drive you home if it's not horribly far from either me or the theatre!).

i'll probably get bored and go the Gypsy for the between-show shenanigans, as well!

houses rentals ....

where does one go to look for rentals in Portland (aside Craig's list..i haven't had a ton of luck...or its spam or its further out than i want to be) Have two big requirements Need a pet friendly house and need yard for the dogs. any help/suggestions would be huge!


So tomorrow is my birthday, and when I saw the special on cupcakes, I jumped on it. I responded to the post before the revision (banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting), and when I saw the revision, I decided I had to have banana chocolate chip cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I live in Hillsboro/Beaverton and I am going to a wedding tomorrow, so I could not pick up the cupcakes. So wonderful drjeff and sistermaryeris both delivered tonight! I promptly ate one and oh my they ARE all they are hyped up to be! Seriously.

Thank you so much drjeff and sistermaryeris for graciously delivering those cupcakes to me so far and in such short notice. You both rock!

i hate backhanded compliments. why do people think that shit is ok? today i saw someone i know and i was feeling pretty, had on a nice top and a skirt. he looks at me and says "wow, youre dressed like a girl today!" its like as opposed to what? i am a girl. do i usually look like shit or something? i think im looking pretty good for 25 weeks pregnant.

so, what kind of backhanded compliments have people given you?
