by any chance, would any of you know what it would take for an american to get knee surgery in say... canada? or in central/south america??
i grow impatient with our health system. not to mention, I can't get surgery without paying around 10-30k since I don't have insurance. I just started a job, but my ACL tear is pre-existing, so I may not get accepted (fucking DOUCHEWADS).
any input would be apprciated :) <3
I have just been given the task of finding a bagpiper to perform in the next hour. Any leads outside the the usual?
When you find something good, you should tell people, especially when it's a mom-and-pop shop which could go under any time.
Last night, I karma-drove* my way, based on a vague memory, to a hidden gem tucked away on Marine Drive, just as you're headed to the airport. A kebab shack which I can't remember the name of.
I ordered the chicken kebab, which comes with "salad" and rice or naan. What I ended up with was first, a show, as they bring out a loooooooong skewer of beautifully spiced chicken. Into the inside tandoori it goes. Veggies get grilled up next to the oven, and about halfway through the chicken cooking, they spin the naan dough, spread it out on a wet towel, and slap it up against the wall of the oven. Delicious bread comes out like two seconds later!
When it was all done, it got put in a container along with some wonderful wonderful tahini with just a hint of heat, and chopped cucumbers. It was divine and simple, with wonderfully moist chicken and perfect seasonings.
Worth the drive, absolutely.
*karma-driving: having no particular destination in mind when you get behind the wheel.
I just got back from a delicious dim sum lunch at Fong Chong (NW 4th and Everett) downtown. It was absolutely delicious. The servers can be a little pushy with the food but you can fend them off. I'm sure all of you downtown workers / dwellers know, but I work in the 'tron and don't get to enjoy such food as often.
I have kind of an off the wall question for you guys. My grandparents immigrated here from eastern europe shortly after my dad and the other kids were born. My grandmother died a couple of years ago, and the kids are just now going through the things in the house since our uncle just took off.. anyway, he found a book full of pictures, except he said that it looks like everyone is sleeping in the photographs. He thought it was cool until I told him those people were probably dead in the photographs. Now he won't believe me unless I can provide references to people actually DOING things like that.
It reminded me of a book that Nicole Kidman finds in the movie "The Others". What are those books called? Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
I'm looking for a restaurant/pub in the Portland or Vancouver area where my partner and I and his 17 year old daughter can hang and watch the Seahawks/Packers game tomorrow afternoon.
Thanks in advance, DPers! :)

*missing a shoe lace. dunno why.
I'm curious what you think is an appropriate amount of money, or percent of one's income, to spend on clothes. My plan is to spend about 3% of my pretax income on clothes, including shoes, hosiery (ugh), casual and business clothes. (And here in Portland we don't have to dress up like I would have in Texas.)
I'm afraid I spend a lot on clothes, particularly since I have student loans to pay and I no longer earn a paralegal's salary. I'm a librarian and have to dress "professionally" but I don't have to wear suits.
Ideas? Tips on spending wisely?
