I miss studying Japanese a lot...I'd like to get back to classes (it's been 3 + years now). so I need a good beginners class to refresh my memory. PCC and PSU both have classes...but they're credit classes. if necessary I can go through the steps for credit classes, but it would be much more to my liking to not have to. does anyone know of any other places giving Japanese classes?

In the interim, does anyone have suggestions for coping with wisdom tooth pain? Besides ungodly doses of ibuprophen?

What did surprise me was the lack of reaction by the female students to one of the definitions. The word was: bevy. The definition was: A group of girls or young women; a flock of birds.
I said, “A group of girls or young women. This test must have come out of a hundred-year-old text book.”
No reaction from anyone.
I said, “A group of young girls or women?”
Still no reaction.
Finally, after waiting a beat for some kind of outraged reaction from the girls in the class and getting none, I said, “A bevy is a flock of birds, period.”
I thought back to my undergrad days at WSU and imagined the storm of protest such a definition would have evoked from the women in class and wondered why none of the girls in this high school class found anything demeaning or offensive in being compared to twitting, fragile, flighty creatures such as birds.
Has the conservative Christian tide in this country brain-washed young women into thinking there is nothing demeaning about being compared to animals? Did the feminist movement reached its zenith with Generation X and is now in a death spiral? Will this generation of females aspire to be the new June Cleavers and Donna Reeds?
This is all very troubling and demoralizing to an old child of the sixties like myself.
1. Search for a word or phrase within my journal (all entries, all dates)? The provided search button doesn't seem to do this at all.
2. Back up my entire journal (all entries, all dates) to my hard disk?
I haven't found any answers in the FAQ. Just checking to see if anyone here already knows how to do this.
(Sorry for this interrupseeon to your internetts pleasure seekage. How this post relates to Portland: insert something here about dem damn hippies blah blah.)
Thanks in advance.
So, I have been here (NW 22rd and Flanders) for about ten days and realize that I need sugestions on the following:
1) Car Wash - prefer to do it myself/coin operated
2) Bulk Laundry Service- have it in my building, but don't like folding and/or ruining my clothes
3) Oil Change
4) Hair Cut - I really don't like paying over $12 since I get my hair cut (before coming here) about every ten days, but I also don't want to get butchered, so I don't know what the rates are for a decent job
5)Liquor Store - where are they?
I am sure there are many other things, and if anyone is very knowledgable of the are and can help, please respond...
I recently got on Great West (POS) medical and have NO recommendations or leads except for an obgyn. I HATE having to pick people randomly out of a directory but it's the plan I've got for the moment. Anyone have recommendations of Great West providers? I'm looking for a GP, endocrinologist and eye doc to start. Thanks in advance!
