EDIT: Thanks guys, I have just tried this tea with lemon and honey thing. Honestly I've never done that before- we don't learn the simple stuff in nursing school. Will try other methods as the day progresses. It's nap time.

oh, and while I'm at it...where in this town does one get truly good sushi and not spend a minor fortune? I come from an island, and so far Portland's sushi scene is making me depressed.
Guess I'd better do a gender check...hold on...k, nevermind, REALLY long fur back there and she (?) gets mad if I try to move her tail to look.
I'm taking her to get scanned later today, but hope by some odd chance her owner is on LJ.
Looking for a good pharmaceutical technician college in the area...does anyone know of any?
My google-fu is lacking today...
I need/want out of the tech field.
Thanks in advance,
I know it's out there and I hear that they sell it at some "health food" stores, but none of my usual haunts are turning any up. And I'm pretty crunchy like that! I can usually find what I need! No such luck... so far.
I do not want to purchase online. I want to purchase locally.
Thank you thank you thank you! :)
Stop by if you get a chance! I'll be running a Sugar Lily booth on Tuesday the 8th. Stop in and say "hi" if you're in the 'hood.
Hope you are all enjoying this FABULOUS WEATHER!
we're having a press screening of the opera tonight. We have some extra free seats. It's a first-come first-serve sort of deal. I just found out about the open seats an hour ago. Love to see you there.

So anyone in the Hillsboro/Beaverton area wanna meet for ice cream?

I am posting this in pdxedu and DamnPortlanders for maximum exposure
To make a very long story short: I inherited a commuter car from my brother which was to get us (my wife and I) by for a few months until we were finished with school. I got it up here from the Bay Area, and, no joke, the first day I went to take it work both front struts collapsed, ripping the bolts right out of the frame and causing an estimated $2700 worth of damage. Ouch. I paid nothing for it, and have no desire, equipment, nor time to try to salvage it at this point.
It's now sitting at the shop, and I'm now responsible for disposing of the damned thing. First problem: the title hasn't arrived in the mail yet, and until then I will need to have it hauled to my apartment. Has anyone had any good experiences salvaging cars at any particular U-Pull places in the Portland area? Or even donating?
It's a '93 Nissan Altima, 170,000 miles, only 40,000 on a new engine and new clutch. Manual. Hell, if anyone wants it, I will practically give it to you.
Look at my journal later on for a detailed account of my absolutely terrible terrible luck with cars.
