Anyone know where I can find a money tree in this lovely city?

I'm trying to Feng Shui the apartment.

Appearances vary, some are bushier and some are tiny. I'm not picky about it.

Thank you in advance! :D What would I do without this place.

Sushi? [01/30/07 11:40pm]

So I've decided that I would like to attempt making my own sushi. However, since I would also like to SURVIVE this attempt, does anyone know where I can buy really fresh sushi-quality fish?

And don't say Loblaws or something like that...supermarket fish is nasty and nowhere near fresh enough.

MOD POST [01/29/07 7:36pm]


It has been brought up in both 613crew(here) and ottawa(here) that perhaps the two communities should merge as there are multiple cross-postings and there's really no need for two Ottawa-based communities.

So, in the words of skippdog: So what say ye fellow Ottawa and surrounding area residents? One community to rule them all?

Poll #916632 Merge of 613crew and Ottawa?

Would you be interested in seeing 613crew and Ottawa merge into one community?

I have no opinion

If you said yes, which of these options would you prefer?

Ottawa should become the main community
613crew should become the main community
I have no opinion

The poll will be up until 8:00pm tomorrow (Tuesday) night and then a decision will be made based on the votes.

613crew and ottawa need to be merged or something... [01/29/07 5:11pm]

Is it just me or are these two communities totally redundant? Just about every single post in either is cross-posted to the other. I'm kinda sick of going to my friend's page and seeing a list of duplicate posts over and over (much like this one)...

I suppose one could just say "Well pick one and ignore the other", but why split readership like that?

So what say ye fellow Ottawa and surrounding area residents? One community to rule them all? Which came first?

Hi everyone!


I am doing a documentary about people who have accents or dialects and the discrimination they have had to deal with. My idea is to interview people who moved to Canada and have had a hard time in finding employment or just general prejudice towards them. I am a Carleton University student and I am doing this for a class of about twenty people. If you are interested in sharing your stories, I would love to hear them. You can contact me at keyers@connect.carleton.ca  I am very flexible in meeting places as well as time. I could do it on campus ( Ottawa, Algonquin or Carleton) or even in a coffee shop or where ever else. This is your chance to get the message out there that there is a problem. Also if anyone has any ideas on how to make this documentary better, feel free to email me! Thanks so much.

I'm looking for registered massage therapists around the University of Ottawa area. I'm not sure if the sports clinic on campus provides them, but if anyone can recommend a place that preferably deals with the insurance directly, thanks!!

Birthday help! [01/26/07 8:54pm]

Hallo all,

My 20th birthday is coming up and I'd like to go out with a bunch of friends.

What I want to do is have a casual later evening dinner/snack because a couple of my friends still aren't legal drinking age and won't be joining us for the booze up afterwards.

Normally, I'd just drag people for pho or indian, but I have a lot of picky-ish eaters who won't eat ethnic food and a fair amount of vegetarians.

I was thinking something like The Irish Village, Milestones, the Manx,...something sort of casual with lots of appetizer type foods. Any of these good for a group?

Any alternative ideas?

1. Will let those under 19 come in
2. Can accomadate a party of 10-15
3. Is reasonably priced
4. Downtownish
5. Takes reservations

[01/26/07 4:43am]

I've been on the lookout for plays recently. You know, just browsing and the sort. But it seems that every place i go seems to have sections for plays that are comprised of 90% Shakespeare and 10% other relatively well known plays that i've already read. And since i don't really feel like making a quest out of it, i was wondering if anyone knew of a good place with a far wider variety of scripts than Hamlet and The Glass Menagerie.
(If you have any specific unknown plays you'd like to reccomend, that's also cool.)

hair salon [01/25/07 12:11am]

I looked back a few pages on here and in the memories but the entries were a couple years old so i was wondering if anyone could suggest a good hairstylist and/or salon to me.   i usually just wait till i'm home and get my hair cut then but didn't have enough time over christmas break and now my hair has decided to rebel against me wholeheartedly so i'm in desperate need of a cut stat! 

somewhere close to downtown and not super super super expensive would be preferable.....its just a haircut though (no more dying it) so i'm cool with paying a reasonable amount to make sure it looks good! 

also, eyebrow threading or waxing places?  I went to the place in rideau once but they didn't really take much off, they seemed a bit lopsided, and i was plucking strays when i got home.   Again, i usually wait till i'm home and go to my usual but i need an inbetween-threading or plucking.

Commercially Zoned Residential Properties [01/24/07 9:16pm]

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find information on Commercially Zoned Residential Properties in Ottawa.  I haven't had much look with google.

If anyone can tell me where I'd be able to find a map of Commercial and Residential Zones for Ottawa, either online or a place in Ottawa I could go for this information, that would be a big help.
