Really? No, Really??? How does Arby's run out of roast beef? What a disappointment. That's like McDonald's being out of fries, or Subway being out of bread.
I think I may send corporate a note about my disappointment. Maybe I'll get a free burger out of it. Anyway, anyone else have any similar stories? Please share.
Anyone go through this recently & have a suggestion? Or have access to a consumer reports vacuum issue?
Portland related because portlanders are such neat-freaks (I clean my house every other month whether it needs it or not!)
Sunday Parkways is a 6.6 mile loop of streets and parks (this time in NE) that are closed to car traffic (except for people who live there, and a few intersections so people can get through the loop). The entire loop feels like one big park! People walk, jog, bicycle, roller-blade, you name it. Residents on the loop have parties or yard sales or lemonade stands. The parks have all kinds of activities and music and food! You can rent a bike if you don't have one so you can ride the loop.
The energy is beautiful and amazing. There's all sorts of people out there: adults, kids, whole families!
Here's the official website, with an explanation of the idea, and pictures and videos of other Sunday Parkways, both in Portland and around the world. If you go to the specific page for northeast, you can see what's going on at all the different parks.
My boyfriend and I are "intersection superheroes" near Fernhill Park from 8:30 to 11:30. Woo! Say hi if you see me, I'll have on a dress (with the volunteer tshirt over it) that's white and covered in black hearts, crowns, and musical notes.
anyone been to "Crave" at Crush before? i've got a date tonight and i'm wondering about the vibe at this event. it advertises go-go dancers on their website, so that gives me an idea, but i'm wondering about personal experience.
thanks in advance!
Creativity is encouraged.
Bachelors degree and approximately 1-3 years of professional office experience.
THIS is what we're all up against! These are the things we need to be telling people that think they can move here and pick up a job.
A receptionist for $10 needs a bachelors degree? Why not? There are enough people out their with degrees that are bussing tables.
Reality like this is so very depressing.
Back to job-hunting :-)
WTF do YOU do?
So...I live in inner SE and I really miss being able to see millions of stars at night when I look up...and I love learning about planets and space and shit. What kind of groups are out there that will let me join them and look through their telescopes and ask all sorts of dumb newbie questions? Anyone know? Anyone here a part of a group or club?
Hope you're all staying cool today.
Alternately, I'm planning on selling the netbook. If you want an HP mini 1000 with a 16gb ssd that needs to be wiped & reinstalled with some kind of OS, it's yours for $200.
If you work in the Adobe Tech sector of Stream out in the Beavertron, I'd like to ask you something. Maybe private message me?
But damn if I haven't been craving these things ever since! Does anyone know any place around Portland that might serve something similar to this?
We no longer have the second highest unemployement rate!
Not that it means we're doing any better.
Just thought I'd share 'cause the blurb was about our fair state.
Thanks! I hate this fucking weather!
I also don't wanna get run over by speed boats.
Where can I go for an afternoon...find a sandbar to eat lunch on and maybe see some birds and fishes?
I see alot of people putting in at Oaks Bottom on the Willamette...but I don't wanna go near the downtown area...anywhere up by Lake Oswego or farther north?
Camping question! Last post by me today...promise.
So, have any of you been up to Badger Lake? From what I've read, the only access to the lake is via a narrow and rough access road. How narrow and rough is it? Would it be advisable to drive up in a truck or SUV? Or would a sedan make it okay? Or should I find someone who knows how to drive off road? LOL I've never been up there and there doesn't look like a lot of info is available via the web.
Hopefully it's not too crowded.
i sort of snapped my license into two pieces a few days ago. it's taped securely with packing tape, but you can definitely tell that it's... well, broken. i've been using it for drinks at bars/ restaurants (such as bridgeport on hawthorne) and nobody has even made a comment so far, but this will be my first time at rotture and i'm not sure how lenient they are with such things. do any of you frequent/ have any experiences or information to share? it'd suck to make the trip out there and have to leave, so if i am screwed, who wants to drink alcohol and bitch about the dmv with me?
It's like the first time I get to show my friend from Vancouver around at night but there's like.. nothing I can think of. :/
Since I have now learned my lesson about messing around with my violin, does anyone know a good luthier? Preferably one that can see me this weekend since I hate playing my other violin. I live in Tigard, but I'm willing to drive a ways to see a decent luthier.
EDIT: I took it to Geesman Fine Violins on SW 13th. It's a nice store and the guy was very helpful. I'll be getting my baby back Wednesday (I suppose it was too much to ask for it to be done today), and he identified a few areas that could cause problems in the future (open seams due to it being Very Old apparently). It turns out whoever fitted my bridge for the violin did it backwards! So the feet need to be recut properly. Over all a very nice experience, I'll definitely be going back to upgrade my bow at a later time.
how do you like Sprint so far? I'm thinking about changing companies. I've had AT&T for 2 years and haven't had any problems.
So tell me what you think about Sprint. Do they suck? is it the same shit just a different company name?
