Hello again DP'ers...
I'm looking for some hidden jems (thrift stores, etc.) in the Portland metro area.. Vancouver is fine.. where I can obtain some cheap fabric in some reasonably good size pieces. Places you've actually been to first hand would be muchly appreciated. And go.
(I've already found Knittin Kitten and SCRAP)
I am so internetty right now (a condition that is somewhat like being bored, but I assure you is different), that I am already planning for tonight's FNNLC.
Yes, we are having a pre-NLC NLC. That is how (un)cool we are.
I am looking for independent local musicians who'd like to get some free exposure. Here's what I need from you, if you are one such person:
A good, current email address that I can use to get in touch with you in a timely manner
A site where I could sample some of your music (anything works. Myspace, whatever...I just need to hear an accurate portrayal of what your stuff is about)
And, finally, let me know if you're part of a group or a solo artist. It doesn't really matter either way, I'd just like to know going in. ;)
Send the above to firstname.lastname@example.org. I can explain the project in further detail privately...but it's not public knowledge yet.
***Also, if you guys have favorite local independent artists, send them my way as well and I'll do the rest of the homework myself. Thanks!
Does anyone know about the various Animal Control jurisdictions around metro area? I live in Washington County, but in an area that is otherwise extremely fuzzy about whether it is Portland or Beaverton (roughly SW 87th and Canyon Rd). How do I find out who runs that service in my neighborhood?
EDIT: ok, I have figured this out. Washington County has a good website, with links to Animal Control, AND a page where they post pictures of any animals that have been brought in.
What I've learned so far from Ego Day? Is that we have a preponderance of attractive people on DP.
My internship site can use your collective wisdom.
Can you recommend any cleaners or cleaning services that are green and use scent-free products, that could regularly clean a nonprofit's small office in Northeast Portland? That's reasonably priced?
Thanks for your advice!
Today, we try something slightly different: The Friday Afternoon, Evening and Night No-Life Club.
And because I am in a grouchy yet secretly wishful mood, perhaps due to either carbohydrates and/or life, I ask a serious question. (As with all clubs, the serious question is optional, feel free to post references to 80s pop culture as needed).
See where you are now: living a life of quiet desperation, bored, staring into the infinite black hole that comes at the end of your travails to understand, here on earth. Now, see where you want to be: beautiful, lovely, loved, loving, prosperous, and numinous. Think of "a land of limitless energy and boundless happiness" or "dreams of unlimited fulfillment". Now, between that Point A, and that Point Omega, what steps must be taken.
Alternatively: What is your favorite 80's cartoon show.
Has anyone here gotten their Bachelor's online? If so, which school did you use? Did you like doing it that way?
