Yes indeed, it's a pimping post - but you'll get something out of it too!

My boyfriend and I went to Taco Del Mar for lunch today...in Vidalia, LA.
Turns out they're expanding, with stores in Jackson, Pensacola, Baton Rouge, and counting. We talked to the owner, who used to live in Coos Bay--we also talked to this other guy, who's from Seattle. So that's exciting! It makes us feel more at home : )
I have my first test tomorrow. I need to study. I usually go to Pharmacy Cafe to study but i'm getting a little worn out. Please recommend a place to go, anywhere in town, that's relaxed, free wifi, and good coffee where I can get my learn on with other people that are getting there learn on. Thank you in advance.
so i need to see a dermatoligist but have no insurance...ideas?
Help? My partner is a very big fan of paleontology; his undergrad work was in it. However, his paleontology books are well... about twenty years out of date. I'd like to get him a new one or two that include the more recent discoveries (such as the new information on ancestral whales and etc). He's not big into genetics but has a very solid science background so big words are okay. Cool pictures, essays or articles on different theories would be good, stuff on morphology, new taxonomic systems/structures also good.
I, myself, am not experienced enough to be able to discern a good paleontology book from a bad one. So, I turn to you, wise Portlanders. Recommendations?
Burgess Shale stuff is good too. Tully monsters, anyone?
I'll be going to Powells for this, so bonus if you know it's there. Used or new, I don't care.
So I've got this bicycle that hasn't had a tuneup or anything since I got it a couple years ago. It's beginning to deteriorate, and it needs in-depth attention and probably some new parts (chain, brake cable and pads, wheel bearings might be wearing out, etc, etc).
I'm looking for the following attributes, in this order:
- open Sat-Mon (my weekend)
- good, honest workmanship
- quick turnaround
- located in NE, or along a MAX line
- decent prices
Where should I take it? Alternately, where should I NOT go?
i will be moving to portland from the other portland in late may/early june. i was wondering if anyone could reccomend the following...
a general practitioner
a good vet
a good pet store
a good grocery store (organic)
a good gym
a good bookstore
any good local book clubs, girly groups, or other fun activities
good places to hear local music
a good hair salon
and anything else you think might be helpful!
thanks in advance!
I know I don't live in PDX yet, but I really want to feel a part of it before I get down there, and my heart already lives there. Sometimes I post in threads about stuff from Alaska comparing it to stuff in Portland. Tongue in cheek, you know, making fun of things from an Alaska perspective, but just really putting my soul into getting down there in August... someone just posted something mean about 'what do bears have to do with silverfish?'.... I was just trying to be funny.
I enjoy this group, love hearing about my future home and can't wait to be down there and participate from the real thing. Do you guys want me to shut up about Alaska, does it bug you that much? I can unjoin and join back up when I get down there.
I'm really not used to people being mean spirited about tongue in cheek posts. I have a thick skin and can ignore it but I got to thinking maybe I really was being annoying...
anyhow, back to work. I just got my year evaluation from Providence Alaska Medical Center, 100% perfect, so I guess that will help when I transfer to Prov portland.
Anyone here ever have a ant farm?
I've always wondered how sustainable and fragile they are.
Could you keep one up and running for years, on an office desk?
(I don't care if you think it's cruel, PETA can suck my schlong)
I kinda want one for my desk. I think it would freak out my DM.
