I know this is a bit odd as far as a request but it's PDX so here goes:
***Does anyone have a pair of cross country skiis that I could borrow from February 18 through the 21st?
I have come upon an opportunity to go XC skiing and I don't have skiis. I am also poor. I want to try it and see if it is worth it to save my pennies/write Santa/sell my soul. My shoe size is a size 8 womens and I'm about 5'7"ish.
I do have collateral as a security deposit if that helps.
***If this fails, any suggestions on SUPER cheap places to rent? Are there any community programs or community centers that rent this sort of thing out?
Someone I know just had a baby and I'd like to buy them a gift certificate to a place like Baby Gap or something. Unfortunately there's not one downtown and that's where I'm limited to. Any suggestions for a store for baby clothes downtown?
I have an ad on craigslist too, but I figured I'd share with my fellow dpers.
Everything is $40 or under. It's mostly IKEA furniture I just don't need anymore.
See ad for details:
Google offers predictive suggestions based on popularity or some secret algorithm when you type your query. I went to Google and typed in "Why", intending to finish the question, but I noticed some odd results.
Why do men have nipples
Why is the sky blue
Why is my poop green
Why are black people so loud
Why did I get married too
Why can't I own a Canadian
Why do dogs eat poop
Why are people posting colors on Facebook
Why do cats purr
Why did the chicken cross the road
I thought it would be fun to suggest that everyone type something in and see what Google suggests.
My friend Bryan will be staying in Portland in March and April before he moves on to warmer pastures...Brazil! I am posting on his behalf to see if any of you wonderful people know of a sublet available for those months. Please comment or email me and I'll make sure he gets the information. He didn't specify an area of town; I'm guessing anything is okay at this point, considering it's going towards the middle of February. Any leads appreciated. And yes, he's already checking out the obvious avenues, Craigslist, etc., although any lesser-known websites are welcome. Thanks!
I'm looking to see a concert type event with a friend, I've seen a few listings for this show "Miss Thing featuring Heklina & the Girls of Trannyshack, San Francisco" but I can not figure out what it is.
Does anyone here know what it is?
I made the garlic noodles recipe you gave me the other night as a side to mango-jalapeno chicken and it was a huge, huge hit! Thanks again, and I can't wait to try it with the teriyaki chicken as originally intended!
I haven't had any tiny pets in a while and I'm kind of missing it. I've had rats in the past, but I'm looking to maybe broaden my horizons. I was looking at hedgehogs but they seem to be a bit expensive (around $150-200, and I'd have to buy a cage on top of that).
So, DP, what have been your favorite pet rodents (or any tiny animals in general) in the past and why? Any I should definitely stay away from?
Where can I get a corset in this town? I'm thinking something mid-range...not the cheap kind that are just decorative, but not the uber expensive kind that are really great, either.
Thanks in advance, DP.
A few of my friends are doing the "Worst Day Ride" this weekend but I can't do it because of lack of funds.
Is there anything else going on in Portland that is cheap and fun and not about stupid ass couples and red hearts and crap?
Not that I'm bitter.. I would just like to be somewhere fun where I can avoid it all and write it off as a fantastic day I had this great adventure.
Is there anything else going on that's fantastic? Maybe I should just be a spectator at this ride. Or maybe I can join without paying? hehehe. Oh maybe someone here wants to sponsor me? I can totally ride with your advertising on my back. What do you say peeps?
I really don't want to sit at home this weekend. LAME.
