To our neighbors, my wife, Nancy, and I don’t appear in the least unusual. To those in the quiet Oregon community where we live, we are viewed just as we are -- a happy couple deeply in love. Our desire to work hard, buy our first home, and start a family was nothing out of the ordinary. That is, until we decided that I would carry our child.
This is an intervention. We all love and care about you. We like that you keep the plants green and the trees growing. We enjoy the scattered sunbreaks in the summer time.
Please, let us finish. This is as hard for us as it is for you.
We know that you want to feel normal. We know that you feel like you can go without your antipsychotics. But it's not winter anymore, especially here. Please start taking your lithium again. We wouldn't want to see you end up in one of the state hospitals with an IV in your arm -- we know what poor shape they're in these days.
Does anyone out here in DP-land have a friendly doctor contact? Or perhaps IS a friendly doctor?
I am having a gout flare up, and I've got a lack of medical insurance. The solution to my problem is a simple non-addictive anti-inflammatory medication called Indomethacin (or Indocin). I normally get my prescriptions for this medication from a doctor friend of mine, but she's on holiday in Fiji (lucky girl) till Sunday, and out of contact.
Is there a friendly doctor around who wouldn't mind writing me out a prescription? I promise I'm not some junkie hooked on anti-inflammatory medication. I'm just a bartender who's dreading the thought of having to work on his feet tonight.
How was it? What should I check out?
The power steering on my '99 Ford Taurus went out a couple of months back, and I'm hoping somebody knows of a mechanic who won't try to convince me that in order to get my car running like it's less-used again, I need to replace the doo-hickey-thingamabob along with the power steering pump.
Bonus points if it's located somewhere on a Max line so that I can get back to work/home after I drop my car off.
Extra-Super-Bonus points if sharp turning isn't required to get into the lot :)
Private room with tambourine or two on the table... Often times BYOB and thus awesome.
I'm looking for something close in.
Also, favorite karaoke songs???? Mine are probably Under Pressure and Don't Stop Believing (the only time i really like this song).
I am confronted with having surgery wherein screws in the bones of my foot are taken out. The Pod that did the surgery in 2001 has long since moved away. So, I'm coming to you for some input.
Do any of you have a Kaiser (I know, I know... sucks for me) Podiatrist that you feel really good about? Or, that you DON'T feel good about?
I would really appreciate your input.
Oh, and if any of you have some encouraging, non-horror stories about having hardware removed from your extremities (I'm no prude, but, no genital piercing stories, please ;) ), I'm all ears!
Thanks, in advance.
We were talking about organic and all natural the fact that dirt is both organic and all natural and unless you really have a defined/accepted/certified definition, the actual words can mean whatever we want it to.
Somehow the conversation went to organic marijuana and she made the comment that "it's also vegan" to which i pointed out that it wouldn't be if they added dead fish to the soil. Then we both started thinking about cookies and brownies and wondered "IS there organic marijuana and how would you get it certified?"
I figure there's enough hippies in this town who hate digusting and poisonous pestisides and love the extra protein that only organic apples and tomatoes can give you, that there SHOULD be some organic weed growing somewhere in this city.
Is it true, does this exist, and is it really organic? Is it vegan or do they use dead fish for fertilizer.
These are the questions that haunt my dreams and I was hoping this smart hippy ladden community could provide answers.
Lack of serious answer appreciated and additional ponderings that muddy up the waters are strongly encouraged.
Finally, because all my posts have been political and I can't stop now... a link to Obama and his economic speech that explains why change is needed during the first half and what he believes we need to do to change it. See... he's not just rhetoric. Feel free to bypass this part as it was just an afterthought, but I liked the video.
Wow... there IS organically grown weed. That's awesome.
The time has come to say goodbye to my barely used Pink Nintendo DS Lite. So, I thought I might give you guys first dibs. It was gently used. Both screens are in great condition. It comes with a pink stylus and at least two more generic styluses. It will be in the original box with the charger. It also comes with the following games: Brain Age, Hotel Dusk, Cake Mania and
Everything included for $125 OBO. I am also wiling to drop the price in order for other goods or services J
I live inner SE and work downtown. I am willing to meet there or otherwise negotiable place.
EDIT: I also found Super Mario Bros & The Nintendo DS Browser [BRAND NEW], which I would love to add for a reasonable price. I would say $150, OBO total for the system, 5 games and the browser? Let me know? KK.
This got me thinking about allegiance to one's country and flag. I can't verify if he doesn't say the pledge or not, but should it matter in today's day and age? Would a presidential candidate not pledging his allegiance to the flag sway your vote one way or another? Do you need to pledge allegiance to the flag in order to prove your "allegiance" to the country?
I'm wondering all you DPers think?
To give some context, I'm an undecided voter, so I'm not trying to incite hatred for a candidate.
I took this shot during a very cold walk last evening...

Good karaoke places on a thursday night, preferably in SE? My default thought is to go to the e room, but I could stand to branch out.
I've had a sore throat for two weeks and need someone someone to quick look at it and prescribe me some meds.
I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A PRIMARY PHYSICIAN OR ER.
I need advice, a guy stood me up two nights in a row, I'll be nice and give him the benefit of the doubt, MAYBE, on the first time (he worked all of Wednesday and so I can see possibly forgetting), but the second time was not cool... I've spent the past two nights in a Olive Garden on Canyon RD in Beaverton waiting for this guy who asked ME out, we confirmed earlier today on tonight and he never showed with so much as text to explain...
So, what's a girl to do? Never speak to him again? Schedule again and stand him up? This was supposed to be my first date ever... anyone want to take a portlander out, too? Haha
Because someone told me I should post a picture to show I am not pathetic...
'scuse the makeup, I was going to the New York Dolls concert.
