just came back from my trip to Seattle. it's a pretty cool place.
if only Portland were just as cool..
A) where does one go to get a silicon swim cap that is not those total piece of shit swim essential ones that are the only silicon option at Portland swimware? I've had 2 break on me in 3 months, the most recent right out of the box. I take excellent care of my swimware and I have no nails or sharp things involved in the swim suiting up process. This should not keep happening.
B) I'm craving a bean burrito with refried beans. Where can I make this happen that is on or very close (as in close enough to get there and back on my 30 min break on foot) the PSU campus. There's that shelly's garden place but $5.75 seems insane for a bean burrito. seems like the answer is standard bean burrito for the typical price, or almost double for refried only double the sass. Got it. More concerned about the first question anyway.
Does anyone know a good dentist in the Portland area who specializes in cosmetic dentistry? I'm looking for bleaching and to get a poorly set cap replaced.
Thanks a bunch!
Are there any mechanical engineers on this forum? I've got an invention simmering in my mind, and I'd like to partner with someone who maybe can help make it a reality, or at least a patent we can sell.
One of the prongs on my white gold solitaire ring got bent out. I could probably fix this myself with some needle-nose pliers but I'd feel a lot better having a jeweler do it. My previous jeweler is a couple thousand miles away so I need to find someone local.
I ran into a Kay's Jewelry because it was nearby and they told me they'd have to send it away and it would take a week to get it fixed. That's freakin ridiculous.
No offense to anyone who shops at Kay's but can anyone recommend a "real" (non-chain, knows what they're doing) jeweler that could take care of this for me in house while I wait? I mean it's seriously only gotta be like a 10 second adjustment. I don't mind paying for the repair.
Quality of service matters more than proximity, but I am in NE.
So I'm finally getting around to making some use of the health insurance I've been paying into for the last couple of years, which means I'm faced with the task of choosing a PCP. According to my insurance provider (UHC), there are dozens and dozens of them within a few miles of inner SE and I'm having a hard time narrowing down the list.
I'm not terribly picky about whether they're male or female, and I don't have any chronic health problems aside from a stuffy nose. They are not required to be vegan-friendly, gay-friendly, trans-friendly, or any other kind of alternative-group-friendly, and I tend to regard so-called "alternative medicine" as quackery.
Any suggestions? Anyone I should stay the hell away from?
edit: There, happy now?
It's the 'Last Thursday' of the month, which means the Alberta Street area in NE is going to be full of vendors, artists, sculptures, jewellers galore!
AND ... I was asked to return to give Tarot Card readings again this month.
Readings are $10-20 per session.
I'll be in the same spot, across from Radio Room, in the designated lot.
The weather will be much nicer than last month! It was hellishly hot!
Hello! I would like to speak with someone briefly about holding an event at souk. if you have a minute or two, I'd really appreciate it.

Anyone in inner southeast have a larger size cast iron skillet they want to sell for, I dunno, around $15 within the next couple hours?
I can ride my bike over and pick it up.
I find myself in excess of plus-sized women's clothing and shoes (and some men's shoes) and would like to donate all of it, preferably to a women's shelter where it will go directly to those in need. Can any of you recommend somewhere legit?
Please and thank you!
Aaarrriiiggghhhttt DeePee, here's another one for ya.
So I was watching Fight Club last night and I got to wondering something. During the movie, Tyler wants to blow up all the credit card companies and erase the debt; essentially putting everyone back at zero. One friend of mine seems to think this is a bad idea and I think it's a good idea (snark me later).
So ... what would be the ramifications of resetting everyone's debt back to zero as the movie suggests?
Hey DP - What's going on tonight? I wanna do something.
Does anyone here know of where I can acquire Russian Dumplings? Cooked or for home cooking is fine with me! I was browsing around online and not having any good luck.
