Today's Portland Tribune Absolutely Filthy Headline of the Day: "It's Time to Suck it Up!" Ugh, you guys. That's what he said.

Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: Cloudy in the low 60s today and tomorrow with a showery weekend ahead.

And finally, you've been waiting for it... and here it is! HIPSTER BARBIE! (Chest tattoos, check. Pink hair, check... a porcupine dog? EVEN PORTLAND HIPSTERS DON'T HAVE THOSE!!)
