My friend from New Zealand wants to introduce me to non-American food (I realize this is lame on my part). She wants to take me to a Portland Thai restaurant. Sadly, I've no idea what place is best.
I am relatively poor, so the best Thai food in PDX for my money is ideal.
Recommendations? How is Peemkaew?
Hello Damned Portlanders!
How many of you folks are going to PAX this year?! What are you most excited about? Gush!
There is going to be a panel on girl gaming done by a group of researchers from the University of Oregon which I am excited to see... but my friend is involved. I'm a little biased. AND the concerts!!!
If anyone has any leads on 3-day passes, let me know! :]
Hello, hello. I have a brand new MyTouch in white and a slighty used SideKick LX 2009 in orchid that I'm looking to sell or trade. The MyTouch I'd sell for $100 OBO and the Sidekick LX 2009 is just for trade. The keyboard is a little worn from my finger nails and I wouldn't take money for it. Everything else on it is fine, I can hard reset it or you can have the themes and ringtones I've already bought for it. I don't know what I'm trading them for, but I don't want these or need them anymore. Does someone you know have T-Mobile and need a new phone?
Speaking of phones. I just dumped T-Mobile because they pissed me off and went to AT&T, 'sup iPhone? I remember there being an Andriod app post, but was there an iPhone one? I've googled and found Times top 10 apps of 2008 and 2009 and the games one, and I've checked out the top 25 in the app store, but I'm wondering if I'm missing anything good. Currently I'm having a blast playing the Chef Academy game and this ice cream shop game. I love my iPhone! Anyone that has bought the new iPhone 4 between yesterday and July something should be eligible for a free case from their iPhone 4 Case app. You just download the app and fill out the info and you get a free case. I did mine yesterday but it isn't supposed to ship until Sept 21st, but still. Free case!
Lastly, I made the best grilled cheese sandwich I've ever made. It's such a lovely shade of golden brown and it's cheddar and havarti. I just needed to tell someone!
i moved to portland a month ago, (yes, another dreaded transplant) and couldn't afford a moving truck, so i took only what i could fit in my toyota camry.
being able to live in portland at all is well worth sleeping on an air mattress, and sitting on the floor to eat my meals at the coffee table... however, i just started work and will hopefully have a bit more money soon to restock the furniture i lost in the move. the furniture i did manage to bring with me was deconstructed and crammed in my trunk, and was all from ikea, but my budget now is a bit more craigslist.
so, since i'm probably over-thinking this, i thought i'd ask you guys how you'd remedy the situation. i see craigslist furniture i want, but if they don't deliver, i can't have it. i only know one other person who lives here, and he has a car that is smaller than mine.
doesn't uhaul and other similar companies have a ton of hidden fees? would it be more worth it to save up some money, buy all my furniture at once from ikea, and have them deliver?
i just need a cheap way to get furniture delivered to my house.
i'll take whatever ideas you've got.
I have an aquarium emergency and can't find the number I usually use--what's the number for the fish emergency line? It's run out of a pet store, but I went through five phone books and couldn't find it. I think it's on the west side.
So my employer has decided it can no longer afford to pay for our employee group health insurance after this year's round of insurance cost hikes. I'm looking in to buying individual health insurance coverage for me and my (unmarried) family. So far, the only company that appears to offer coverage for non-registered domestic partners is Regence. We are a heterosexual couple, so we can't register as a domestic partnership, and it makes no sense at all for us to get married.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation and have any advice? Any companies to look in to? Any companies to avoid?
Hi DPers -
I ordered a couple of shirts online, and received them today. They're lovely, except for the still being too big on me despite being a petite XXS (and, WTH? a XS is usually fine!). I'm considering having them altered where the fit is off but I'm really looking for two things in whoever I take them to:
1) A willingness to be honest about whether proposed alterations are really going to turn out well; that might lose this sale but will earn my future loyalty as a customer and good word of mouth
2) A decent level of experience in fitting petites
Any recommendations? Thanks!
So how do I turn off those terrible, obnoxious "repost" links at the bottom of every post or comment I try to make? LJ's FAQ claims I can turn them off at the Extentions tab on the My Account Settings page, but there's no such option whatsoever. Clicking on the Facebook icon like it says to do only takes me to a Facebook login page--which is useless because I'm not on there.
Do I have to turn off Pingbacks? Because I signed up for that because I wanted to know when people were linking my entries, but never once recieved a notification. Is that even what it's for? Because that was my understanding at the time.
