I need a massage. Bad. I've never had one, but I just know I need it. But...i don't want to pay 100$ an hour or anything like that....Are there any places that won't kill me (I'm kind of a wuss) but will make my neck stop hurting so bad? These new chairs at work suck :(

Is Government Camp open for skiing yet? (are the lifts operating)
I need a study break, but don't want to drive too far up on the mountain because the higher the elevation the more expensive the passes and I'm almost broke :)
(unless someone wants to lend me their pass)

"Best cell phone coverage" answer

I see people asking this a lot, so I thought I'd post the results of this Consumer Reports survey about cell phone service-- specifically the actaul service of the phone, so circuits full, dropped calls, static, and no-service areas are the criteria. This is according to a Consumer Reports SURVEY, so read into it what you will.

They sorted it by metropolitan areas; Portland wasn't one of them, but in Seattle Verizon and T-Mobile tie for first, and in San Francisco Verizon wins by a bit.

Just for the record, Verizon tops the list in every metropolitan area except Chicago, where it's behind U.S. Cellular. T-mobile is usually behind Verizon by a varyingly medium to small margin (Sprint took second in Detroit though, and in New York T-mobile actually took last). Cingular, Sprint, and Nextel's places all vary otherwise, but it looks like Sprint *tends* to beat Cingular and Nextel.

Also, just a reminder: MEETUP TUESDAY! Details here, meetup FAQ here, minors welcome until 10pm.

From Nickel Creek's latest MySpace blog entry:

I love Portland. I could live there someday. I really could. The days were clear and crispy-cold. I got some Christmas shopping done. We played two nights there, and then enjoyed another day off there in town. Everytime I went to Stumptown, I saw one of the guys...whether he be Sean, Chris or Kevin (the drummer with Andrew Bird). We all went at least 2 or 3 times a day. So good.

Aww, warm fuzzies. :)

So the Boyfriend and I are thinking about going to Zoolights - is this an event that is going to be super lame if we don't have small children in a stroller?

Sick kitties...

I just found out that my 9 year old, 25 lb cat has tapeworms, which means the other two, younger, smaller cats probably do as well. I went to Petsmart, and while the roundworm treatment was $6.99, the *only* tapeworm treatment they had was $24.99 for 3 tablets - enough to treat one cat. The clerk told me that a vet can give them each a shot for the tapeworms - but here is the biggest problem: I am completely broke. We don't even have heat in our house because we can't afford to buy oil. (And kitties like to stay warm, too, so they cuddle up to the humans for body heat...which with tapeworms I'm thinking is probably not a good idea). Does anyone know of any low income emergency pet help?
