Did anyone happen to catch him at Berbati's last night? I wanted to go but couldn't stay up that late on a school night.
How was it?
We don't get cable where I live, and I'd like to watch this Sunday's Seahawks game (and future games) on a large TV with a clear picture. I live in NoPo, and the only bars I've seen nearby don't look like they'd be too fun to watch a game (or drink, or sniff the air) in. So I'm asking you, the reader, if there are any cool sports bar type places you'd suggest. N or NE preffered but not required, and I don't care how trendy or fratty they are.
What is one supposed to do with "expired" car seats? It hasn't been in any car accidents, it's just old.
Have the trash guy haul it off?
I've noticed a few brick buildings in NW and NE that have Egyptian decor around the entranceways and whatnot. Anyone know of why this is?
This was one of my favorite books growing up.
'A Wrinkle in Time' author Madeleine L'Engle dies
04:29 PM CDT on Friday, September 7, 2007
HARTFORD, Conn. – Author Madeleine L'Engle, whose novel A Wrinkle in Time has been enjoyed by generations of schoolchildren and adults since the 1960s, has died, her publicist said Friday. She was 88.
Madeleine L'Engle L'Engle died Thursday at a nursing home in Litchfield of natural causes, according to Jennifer Doerr, publicity manager for publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
The Newbery Medal winner wrote more than 60 books, including fantasies, poetry and memoirs, often highlighting spiritual themes and her Christian faith.
Although L'Engle was often labeled a children's author, she disliked that classification. In a 1993 Associated Press interview, she said she did not write down to children.
"In my dreams, I never have an age," she said. "I never write for any age group in mind. When people do, they tend to be tolerant and condescending and they don't write as well as they can write.
"When you underestimate your audience, you're cutting yourself off from your best work."
A Wrinkle in Time – which L'Engle said was rejected repeatedly before it found a publisher in 1962 – won the American Library Association's 1963 Newbery Medal for best American children's book. Her A Ring of Endless Light was a Newbery Honor Book, or medal runner-up, in 1981.
In 2004, President Bush awarded her a National Humanities Medal.
Wrinkle tells the story of adolescent Meg Murry, her genius little brother Charles Wallace, and their battle against evil as they search across the universe for their missing father, a scientist.
L'Engle followed it up with further adventures of the Murry children, including A Wind in the Door, 1973; A Swiftly Tilting Planet , 1978, which won an American Book Award; and Many Waters, 1986.
Is there a Laundry Mat located near Sellwood (or preferrably IN Sellwood or Westmoreland possibly eastmoreland?)
My clothes needs washed, and google sucks.
I am desperately looking for a dietician but my Google and Citysearch skills are failing me. Most that I find seem to be requiring a membership to their gym. I posted in this community awhile back about it, however, I got few responses.
My question is - do any of you have a dietician you personally loved who was kind and not judgemental?
So I'm venturing downtown to the Art Museum with my spawn tomorrow and would rather take the Max or the bus or something than try to park.
Any advice on screwed up routes? Best routes? Anything?
I dunno if this will work out in time, but here goes.
We're going to Canada tomorrow, I have a job interview on Monday in Vancouver, and we are extremely short on funds.
I have a $100 Macy's gift card that I have never used, and probably never will. I am willing to sacrifice it for $75, and to sweeten the deal, I will throw in two $10 gift cards to Storables.
Cash only please.
Help! I have to quit smoking; I just gave away the last of my smokes today in fact, and I'm now sitting here stuffing my face with.... cantaloupe! But I don't expect this to last and I want to avoid the chocolate, you know? Plus I sort of needed help anyway, as I'm a kitchen moron and can make 3 dishes and my boyfriend's pretty sick of them, so if any of you have good recipes involving a lot of fruit and vegetables, low on the mammals (although I do eat meat), and easy enough even I can follow them, I'd really really appreciate it. I aim to be the first person I know to lose weight after smoking, and I think it'll help if I'm occupied in the kitchen with healthy recipes. I'm already figuring I can replace my morning smoke with a brisk walk (naive, but perhaps it could work), but this'll kill about 3 birds: learning to cook better, impressing the s.o., and distracting me.
:) Thanks. Thanks bunches.
EDIT: Holy crap! You guys are amazing! I was going to respond to just about each and every one of those posts, too, then my fingers got tired and I need to get to the store so I can buy things like "catfish". I also haven't had a smoke for 24 hours... I really appreciate all the help!!!
