Friends, I want to share my joy with you. Rob and I have decided to upgrade our relationship to the legal variety. Rob is an amazing partner in life. He is hard working, kind, and generous. He bursts into music like I burst into song. Any room with a piano (or other keyboard instrument) will soon have a Rob making music at it. I can talk to him about anything and he makes me laugh so hard I can't breathe. Our relationship keeps getting deeper and stronger. I'm so grateful that some day (when we figure out how the heck to plan a wedding with our busy schedules) I will be able to call him my husband.

Portland issued a boil water notice today. 
The Portland Water Bureau issued a city-wide boil notice on Friday morning after state health officials detected E. coli in three separate tests during the past three days.

Yah, I'm honestly not too worried about it.
It's probably one of those things where the risk to non- immuno-compromised (sp?) folks is fairly low, but they have to issue an alert for liability/public health and safety reasons

We just watched a wall of rain creep over the OHSU Hill, across the parking lot, and then pummel against the windows of the lecture hall. There was an audible, multi-person gasp when it hit.

At my work we laughed and cheered and ushered stragglers in from the storm.

A brief glimpse of weather magic: It was sunny enough that I was squinting, but the sky was black on the horizon. It was pouring rain so hard my wipers couldn't keep up, but then the rain went away suddenly and the sky filled with rainbows.

Awesome.  I spent an afternoon in West Texas once in weather like this - it was amazing.

It's February and suddenly there are doofuses in my driveway again! Every time I see them I remember the weeks surrounding Oscar's birth.

I love this! One of my favorite authors bears a striking resemblance to an author that she emulates.
So, the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, has unveiled a forensic recreation of Jane Austen. Allow me to tell you a story, that is purely fiction. Jane Austen was very ill in 1817 and her family called for the Doctor. Though this good gentlemen did his best, there was nothing that could be done for …

This is your occasional reminder that self care is a divine responsibility. (You are welcome to define "divine" however you like.)

There's a professor at school who puts it up on the board in some classes.

PSA: I'm switching phone plans this weekend - Calling or texting me will not work until further notice. If you need me, email, facebook, or twitter will work.

Update: That was fast! It only took about an hour to switch to the new phone and new plan! Call and text as much as you would like!

I've lived in this town 12 years and this was the first time I was on a bridge as it drew. This is the Morrison Bridge this morning on the way to school :)

I just took a take home midterm for my immunology class and the cats decided to keep me company.

I'm so sad for this tree! It was so beautiful! That was a heck of a wind storm last night.

Not a place to get tacos if you want regular tacos, but they make some really innovative, interesting combinations of things. Quirky, delicious, open late. Occasionally slow service.

The menu is always different and every time I go I find something more delicious than the last time. Sometimes I order a dish because it comes with a side of their fabulous potatoes. Their staff is friendly and cheerful and seem to really like being there. Go there for brunch or for dinner!

Excellent salsa! Occasionally too loud for my tastes, depending on the night.
