Is it summer yet?? This "retro" polka dot bikini from F21 is adorable.

Very cool - go Cambridge! Same-sex stipend may be a first in the US: Cambridge seeks to defray federal tax on health care

I was in Portland this past weekend for a friend's grad school graduation (yay, Sadie!) and had a wonderful time. Portland was really bringing the charm, and more and more I'm thinking it's a place I'd love to live in the future. Saturday night was a yummy all-appetizers and dessert (my kinda people!) dinner at Ciao Vito - I'd especially recommend the spinach and polenta, and the potato fritters. Sunday, we had a wonderful brunch at Tasty n Sons (with a pre-game donut from Voodoo Donuts - yes, this weekend was sugartastic, to be followed by a few more non-sugared days this week. Everything in moderation, right?). The wait isn't short at Tasty n Sons, but the service was very prompt and I was impressed by how quickly the food came - it's sort of tapas style, which was great. Favs included the potato donuts, the sauteed spinach (although it was really salty), and the potatoes bravas. After brunch we strolled around N. Williams St, which had tons of cute shops, including Lark Letterpress, where I wanted to buy pretty much everything. Also observed: endless cute bikes and dogs. Yay, Portland! Can't wait to visit again soon.

Wow. A complete lack of basic human compassion. Massachusetts Republican: Undocumented Immigrant Rape Victims ‘Should Be Afraid To Come Forward’: "Asked if he would be concerned that a woman without legal immigration status was raped and beaten as she walked down the street might be afraid to report the crime to police, Mr. Fattman said he was not worried about those implications. 'My thought is that if someone is here illegally, they should be afraid to come forward...If you do it the right way, you don’t have to be concerned about these things.'"
