I have a friend coming in on a latenight flight (12.45) from two weeks in exile in a dry county. She would really like nothing more than a beer, ANY beer, once the baggage has been claimed.
Checked with PDX and everything at the airport itself closes at 11. Anywhere close, walking distance would be nice, that is still open and serving at that time of night on a "non-weekend" night? Hotel bars are fine but proximity to the airport is the key.
I'm going back through LJ friends entries, and wondering whether to freak out about the fact that someone TWENTY YEARS YOUNGER than me wrote a DP post about "getting older."
Jump, run, and sleep through the night while you can, babies. Happy October. :)
So a friend of mine was riding the Max home yesterday when she got fare-checked. She was tired and carrying a lot of stuff, as she'd just come from her dance class, so she accidentally pulled out an expired fare. The lady pulled her off the train, and my friend proceeded to dig through her bags for her current fare while the lady started writing her a ticket. She finally found it and showed it to the woman, who then said it was expired (wtf!) and gave her a ticket anyway.
And yes, I know my friend really did have valid fare, she showed me her weekly pass which expires on 10/4.
She's gonna fight it for sure, but what gives? Have any of you heard about something like this happening?
Thank you to everyone who responded to my earlier post. Your advice and observations were dead on. Your help made this trip so much easier.
Thank you. May your kindness and consideration return to you tenfold.
Does anyone have a staple gun (with a few staples in it) I can use for a day or two? I'll give you $10 if I can borrow it and return it tomorrow or Sunday.
I can pick it up tonight after 7pm and return it whenever is convenient for you. I need it to put up a couple signs for my yard sale this weekend.
PS: Anyone else who has some yard sale tips and would like to share them would be amazing :)
Before I call and get lied to by CS I'll ask you guys. Is my Verizon Blackberry Curve gonna work in Germany?
well, this is gross, but i have to ask: is anyone else noticing a preponderance of GIANT FLIES? we have a bunch outside our office and all i can think is that there must be a dead mouse or something nearby to attract them. but good grief, these suckers are HUGE. is anyone else seeing them around, or is it unique to our location i wonder?
Dear DP, Halloween is fast approaching now and I am curious if anyone has seen a red or maroon lacy and gothic wedding dress around town? I'm trying to dress as Lydia from Beetlejuice this year. What I can find around town will determine whether or not I am cartoon Lydia or movie Lydia. I'm gonna be checking Red Light soon but if anyone has any other good suggestions they would be much appreciated!
if you could perfect/learn ANY language with the press of a button, and one language only, what foreign language would it be?
it would be german for me. shit sounds so cool.
What up, Portland??
I just watched Fringe and now I am bored.
my parents are two of the least techy folks i know.
one of them must have clicked on whatever "WARNING WARNING WARNING! VIRUSWARE LOCATED! SKY IS FALLING! CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE!" pop-up they got, and now their computer is in the middle of death throes.
i know we're dealing with AT LEAST Trojan.Win32.Agent.azsy
the basics won't work, because nothing will open. nothing. not regedit, not taskmanager, not firefox or any of the antivirus programs they have. my tech support phone skills are useless.
i ask you, oh dp oracle, where do we start? i mean, aside from advising them to buy a new machine and start from scratch, has anyone dealt with this? what do you do when you can't even access the registry?
