I tried looking online a bit, but it was hard to narrow things down or even get an idea of what's inside a store.
Where can I find shit like circuit board kits, free-lounging LEDs/capacitors/thingies, or other electronic geek equipment?
I need to . . . make . . . something.
So, any of yous guys have a favorite/recommended auto care place downtown? My car has some wiring issues and I also need to get it prepped to pass the DMV emissions test.
anyone else having issues logging into Facebook today?
I need to find a a pair of moonboots, size 10 mens or bigger, and a disco ball roughly the size of a baseball.
Anyone have either of these, or know where to find them?
I'm 39 weeks preggo and my baby is in the Frank Breech position. I'm worried about getting a C Section and in all honesty I want nothing to do with it. I really want to go thru with my home birth.. the only real way I can feel OK about a home birth is if she is head down like she should be... I'm even tempted to try a vaginal breech birth, but the medical staff (and my mother) are trying their hardest to keep me from doing that. The L&D team at OHSU have completely refused to let me deliver breech with them.
I'm here looking for a low cost acupuncturist or chiropractor that knows about this sort of thing. I've read that the Webster Technique and acupuncture work wonders! I'm really short on cash since it's all gone to the baby... This was totally unexpected and I have no insurance to cover such things.
Any info is appreciated, and it would really make our week if you could help us by picturing our birth a happy and healthy one.
THANK YOU PORTLAND.
I need cheese. Not just the sort at New Seasons or Fredricks, which is normally ok, I need REALLY GOOD feta. I used to get my fix at the Kiva in Eugene, but I haven't seen any place similar yet here, I want the good, salty, sold in buckets of brine type. I know there's a cheese shop or used to be one in Sellwood, where is that exactly and do they stock what I want? If this magical cheese place also sold a good sharp white cheddar and a huntsman that did not come pre-shrink wrapped and nasty looking like the stuff at Fred's and Trader Joe's, that would also rock my world. Me and my 30 carb a day Atkins thanks you for any help.
Portland related because feta should NOT taste like yogurt.
Does anyone know what is the latest I could expect a package delivery from UPS? I tried to find this info in their website but I couldn't.. my package tracking says "out for delivery" since 6:44am and I don't want to sit around all day on my day off waiting for it. What is the average time you've gotten delivery? (granted I am way out in the 100's avenues.. :/) If it can come as late as 8pm I am not going to sit around until then..
I am at work, and this is my seventh day of flu. I am leaving soon, and I would like to get some pho to help clear out my head. I would really, really prefer not to eat the pho in a restaurant. I'd like to take it home with me and eat in peace.
Does "take-out pho" exist in Portland?
anyone need some damnboxes? we've pretty much finished unpacking from our move and have a bunch. most of them are (cardboard) wine boxes - sturdy, and a good size for things like books and kitchenware. i'd like someone to come get them in the next couple days. i'm a few blocks from peninsula park.
Just so you know, our Congress is debating on which Girl Scout Cookies are better right now.
And which ones go better in ice cream.
Just so you know.
(Somoas are the best, by the way, but thin mints are better in ice cream.)
First, full disclosure: I'm doing some promotion of my damnself and my damnbusiness right now. We'll get back to your regularly scheduled requests for a place with a decent collection of fur-lined booty shorts in about 30 seconds. OK, ready? Go!
I'm trying to launch the hell out of my little business, Ten K One Writing. Copywriting, editing, proofing, ghosting...I even do grout, if it's for your business communication needs. Which is great! But the tiny, yet persistent snag is that most of my published writing is in the form of articles for blogs and magazines. I need to fatten up my commercial portfolio, y rápido!
So, a favor, DamnPortlanders: Can I do some business writing for you for free? If you could pay me with honest feedback (or, if you must, overly complimentary feedback) and a testimonial that I could paste up on my site, that would be capital. I'd especially love to work with other fledgling businesses. Brochures, postcards, web copy, truly non-skeazy letters encouraging your clients to walk in your doors...let me lend a hand, if you would.
Oh! And I'm a crappy graphic designer, but if you're OK with a (very) basic look, I will design to a beautiful MS Office template and take care of layout too. I even know a guy who will photograph yer goods, but he will probably want some cash in exchange for his services.
Here's my website (yeah, I have kind of a thing for primates): www.tenkone.com
And the contact info, if you're not into the commenting thing: email@example.com
Thanks very much. Er, snark away, naturally.
Two floor-level tickets for Star Wars: In Concert! $65 / ticket or best offer!
I have two tickets for Star Wars: In Concert tomorrow at the rose quarter at 7:30 PM. They are seats 18-42 and 19-42 - very close, and on the floor level. One seat is in front of the other, so you can still go with a friend!
When I ordered tickets, there were no side-by-side seats left on the floor level, and wanting to bring my girlfriend to experience Star Wars with me, I settled for one seat that was right in front of the other. She wasn't too thrilled with that idea (she thought I was joking when I told her!), so I purchased tickets a little further away, but where we could sit together.
Each ticket was $69; contact me with your best offer.
Since I will still be attending the event, we can meet outside of the rose quarter before concert to exchange cash and tickets.
If this is an improper use of this community, let me know and I'll take this posting down.
Here is information on the event:
Some of the most unforgettable sights and sounds that the cinema has ever offered will be experienced by audiences in Portland, OR as never before when STAR WARS: In Concert comes to the Rose Garden on October 14, 2009.
This show features an extensive selection of Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ legendary scores from all six STAR WARS movies into an extraordinary two-hour musical event that features scenes from the movies, a full symphonic orchestra with choir, and live narration by Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO in the series.
In addition, audiences will be able to view an exhibition of STAR WARS original memorabilia, props, costumes and artwork from all six films from the Lucasfilm Archives. STAR WARS: In Concert, which will have only one performance in Portland, is produced by Another Planet Entertainment, in association with Lucasfilm Ltd.
Where are you buying your tickets at for Skinny Puppy? (Nov 2, Wonder Ballroom)
